I've always said, the funniest people are the brilliant ones.

One of the funniest shows on television, for me, is The Big Bang Theory. I'm not always into humorous shows or movies, sometimes I need something quite deeper to hold my interest. But this show hooked me from the first episode, whether it be with Sheldon's idiosyncrasies, Raj's inability to speak to the opposite sex, Penny's less-than-genius way of working through things, or Wolowitz's sheer genius brain coupled with his not-so-genius way of woo'ing girls. And let's not forget Leonard, a an experimental physicist with an IQ of 173, yet he falls short most of the time on the social scene.

What's not to love, right?

The combination of these characters makes the show nothing short of brilliant, but I have to say, Sheldon is my favorite. His borderline excessive compulsive disorder doesn't come across as a problem with it being coupled with the fact that he received  his PhD at the age of16. I've always said, the funniest people are the brilliant ones.

I've since come to realize that the part I look forward to the most during these episodes is the last 3 seconds after the credits roll, and that would be, Chuck Lorre's notes titled "Chuck Lorre Productions". I don't always agree with what he writes, but that's the point isn't it? I've finally learned that stimulating conversation, or "reading" is supposed to make you see something you didn't before, and then you decide whether or not it's for you.

There are literally hundreds of these, but I'll select this one to share for an example.

                                            CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #239

                                                                TO DO LIST

Live to see a highly educated, deeply thoughtful, articulate, cool, biracial President who is not overly crippled by childhood wounds and capable, in no particular order, of freeing the nation of its oil dependence, restoring its international standing, creating universal health care, resurrecting the economy, ending two wars, rebuilding the public education system, finally bringing about an end to the mindlessness of racism, encouraging science and technology, firmly addressing environmental issues and global warming, and uniting the nation - and the world - in a giant cultural, tipping point leap forward.

Meet super-intelligent aliens who disarm the entire planet, cure every disease and take us all for rides across the galaxy.
Play a round of par golf.
Trade solos with Eric Clapton.
Win an Emmy.
Get married, stay married.

One down, five to go.

Indeed, Chuck.

Happy Friday, and Happy Weekend to you my friend,

PS Do you ever have breakfast food, for dinner?

I have just recently started watching "The Big Bang Theory" & I really like this show.

Also YES, we love breakfast for dinner at our house. One of our favorites is bacon/egg burritos with all the fixin's.

It's one of my favorite shows on tv =). And, THAT is a perfect "dinner" at the White House I bet. Thank you for stopping by Dan!

Michael and John laugh SO HARD at this show. It is amazingly funny. And it's SWEET funny. I think that's one thing I like about it. I love some good biting sarcasm a la Friends, but there's nothing like humor that also sort of makes you go Awww (i.e., nerdy boys who can't get the girls and know they can't but still carry on).

And breakfast for supper rocks.

Tiffany said...

I had a feeling Michael would be watching this show, ha!
And I think I'll have pancakes for dinner. =)

German pancakes and kielbasa with lots of crunchy peanut butter and maple syrup. And frozen strawberries if you have them.
