So my new favourite show is The Big Bang Theory on CBS.

If you haven't seen it rush to your television sets on Mondays at 8:30 p.m. (or check listings if you don't live in Ontario).

It's a brilliantly devised sitcom, the perfect combination of ridiculousness, wild laughs and nerdy humour. You'll probably recognize the character of Leonard as the same guy who played Darlene's boyfriend in Roseanne (and she actually makes a few cameo appearances in this show). Leonard is a brilliant physicist who finds himself taken by the hot new girl who moves in across the hall (very a la Friends, but without the gen-x chic feel). Just how does a socially inept science nerd romance his good-looking neighbour? By inviting her to a 97-hour HALO-3 marathon of course.

But my favourite character is Sheldon, the ultimate super-science geek. I've never laughed so hard in my life.

Oh man I have no time for TV. Seriously it's sad.

Amy, you mean you have no time for TV other than Torchwood and Dr. Who, LOL

I don't really either. I love to watch this when I can, but I admit that I've missed the last two episodes.

Looks like fun. I think I went to school with those guys. I seem to have sworn off TV myself, but I might have to make an exception. :)

Maggie, I can see you really liking this show, the humour is "adult" without being dirty, cheeky without being snarky and intelligent without being snooty! Check it out.

I love that show! Did you see the one where Sheldon is sick and everyone is trying to stay away from him because he's such an awful sick person? Loved that one!

GREAT show! Sheldon is my favorite as well! I only ever see it when I head home to visit the parents because I forget what time it's on but now that I know... !
