The Big Bang Theory -- "The Excelsior Acquisition" -- 03/01/10

Kaley

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Sheldon misses an opportunity to meet comics mogul Stan Lee, who appears in a cameo, when he has to go to traffic court after getting a ticket because of Penny.


Helping LorenzoL with this show too. I don't watch this either, but damn, Kaley Cuoco is smoking hot.

If I have time during the summer, I may try to rent season 1 to see if I like it or not.

If you do rent it, be sure to watch a few episodes before you decide. While I liked it, most people thought the PILOT one wasn't that great.

Nice photos of Kaley. Yeah I heard the Pilot was regarded as bad by many people. We'll see, I might give it a go.

This is my favorite show on TV It really takes a few episodes to pick up though and to get a feel of all the characters and their personalities. That's the best part in later episodes.

Penny used to dress a lot better last season. Kinda disappointed.

Still solid episode though. My favorite comedy on right now.

For me this one didn't grab me the way i thought it would from the premise.Usually when Sheldon and Penny are paired together i really enjoy it but this one didn't bring the funny for me.

I have to agree. Mildly amusing at best tonight.

It was a cheap joke, but Raj's shirt made me laugh with the Law & Order sound effect.

That was pretty funny. I predict a run on these shirts. $29 isn't bad, considering that you could pay that much for just a "designer" t-shirt.

Sheldon's right about those traffic cams. Those things should be unconstitutional. I'm so glad we don't have them in NV. I'm half tempted to run a red light when I'm in CA just so they can snap a picture of me without a front plate.

I have to get that as a ring/text tone. Anybody know where I can find that?

Very funny episode.

I never understood that. I was hooked right from the first episode.

On behalf of all Californians, (especially those who have been injured, killed or had their cars totaled), here's hoping that you do not find your way here.

BTW, it'll get a shot of the rear of your vehicle as well, so that's not gonna work out too well.

I said half-tempted. Wouldn't really try it. Especially now that I know they take a rear plate picture as well. Still, it's a very unsporting way to give out tickets. Glad we don't have them here.

Here's my one near-miss : I was driving in SF at rush hour. Traffic was bumper to bumper. I was trying to turn left at a light with no dedicated left turn signal. When the light turned yellow, I wanted to turn but people kept driving trough the intersection. When it finally cleared, I then turned left and cleared the intersection. As I drove away I saw a camera flash and heard a siren noise. I was convinced I had gotten a ticket for running a red though I had thought I had entered the intersection before the yellow changed. I was depressed and it ruined my trip, but I never got a ticket, so I suppose it was someone behind me. In a situation like that, no cop would give a ticket, but a camera would. That's the sort of thing I object to, that and the tickets the cameras give for not coming to a complete stop before a right on red that experts believe pose no risk for accidents. I'm fine with the blatant light runners getting nailed.

I would like to have seen some interaction between Sheldon and his cellmates.

BTW, in April on TBBT:

I would have loved to see more interaction between Sheldon and the cellmates.

Although, was Penny really in the wrong in this instance? It was really all Sheldon's fault for insulting the judge in the first place. Oh well.

I was glad to see Stan Lee on the show. After the signing, I thought they might have cheesed out and not really have him on.

There was plenty to laugh at here, but Raj's shirt and his looooong list of Stan Lee character names got the biggest laughs out of me.
