I like David%u2019s idea with the Howard and Bennie spin off of "The Big Bang Theory", because these to characters are really funny with just them. I just started watching this show this season because of my Hopper that automatically records all of my prime time shows that come on CBS, NBC, FOX and ABC everyday in HD. I work for Dish and I can tell all of you that the Hopper is also capable of skip all of your recorded commercials when you watch your PrimeTime Anytime recordings the days after they%u2019ve aired.

I just watched an early episode with the time machine. It was fantastic! Those early shows without girlfriends were SOOOO much funnier and better. They're boring now!

A great spin off of the Big Bang would be Howard and Bernadette, married, and all the comedy that comes with that. Simply called, Howard and Bernie.

This show is my medicine. I can have the worst day imaginable and watch a couple of episodes on DVD and be good to go. However, I do think that the Sheldon character displays symptoms of a variety of personality disorders and wonder if this bothers people who have a personality disorder. I have symptoms of several as well and find the Sheldon character to be very endearing. Actually helps me cope.

@Mike I am going to cry just when the season ends! I have just started watching the show and I have finally caught up! They should tape year-round! : D

Can anyone tell me what the poster in Sheldon and Leonard's kitchen says. It is the one behind the breakfast bar- looks like a picture of a chef with two words below him? I have been studying and puzzling over this for ages- a bit geeky I know but now I am desparate to know!! Thanks
