Sheldon Cooper is my hero. For those who haven’t watched the genius sitcom, ‘The Big Bang Theory’, Sheldon is an uber anal mega-brain, halfway between being a seminal scientific genius and a super-villain.
I decided it was time to introduce blog readers who may’ve missed this slice of nerd heaven to TBBT (to geek-acronym it). It’s beautifully written, skilfully acted and merges science and silliness wonderfully.
Better still, Sheldon even has a monologue on how Christmas gift-giving is pointless (hoorah! see my own Ban Christmas presents blog).
Last night I re-watched my favourite clip of all the series again – a devastating display of full-on super-nerd power in a comic book store. You have to wonder how many takes it took the actors to do this perfectly (got it).
Watch a quick clip below or an extended one here.
PS. As for the T-shirt in the pic – thanks to Mrs MSE for the gift. I think she thought, if you can’t beat the nerds, allow him to join them.
PPS. If you watch the show you have to feel sorry for MSE Penny. I find it near irresistible not to knock on her MSE Towers desk three times saying "Penny" every time I want to ask her something.
