Ha ha, can you imagine a video of Howard screaming in YouTube?? For a moment I thought in searching it, but then I thought, "no, it is not possible" :)

I love the series, but when Howard told Bernadett about he 9 minutes screaming video, I got interested and I looked it up, I didn't find anything... I think that CBS should link some episodes to official videos on YouTube, so people can have fun watching them...)

Seriously ....Sheldon making jokes about his poop ?? Since last season, the writers make him act like a total retard. So many recycled jokes (raj not talking, penny the stupid monkey). Lenny boring as hell, Amy and Bernie should die in a car crash, since their coming the show sucks more and more.

Sheldon and Howard are carrying the show so far this season. But Amy has got to go! I can't stand that character-she's just filler, and not funny filler at that. The Leonard and Penny saga is descending into not much more than a soap opera, so they need to freshen that up somehow, likely something involving Sheldon. Some of the funniest bits over the years have been when Penny and Sheldon are forced together, and almost all of the worst bits have been with or about Amy, with or without Sheldon (but when "with", it's been funny because of Sheldon, not because of Amy).
