Anyone seen this show? So far 3 episodes have been shown in the UK, but it’s a US show. It’s quite witty, and is about 4 geeks and a blonde girl who lives opposite two of the guys.


I have and I am not overly impressed. they seem to be making fun of geeks not simply making jokes. It has some potential and it did get called back for after the season is over, but it is going to really have to hit me hard for it to be worth the 20+ minutes.

I did have a gamer moment though when they were all online playing their mmorg I KNOW THOSE GUYS! *mate looks at me funny* ALLRIGHT I AM THOSE GUYS!

As soon as I heard the "Laugh Track" in the background I could not watch it anymore...


Its one of my favorite new shows. I find it to be smartly written and realistic in that I know people who are these guys. There are about 10 episodes so far, a few of which are misses but most are excellent. Especially the one with Sheldon's mom. The season had a huge break during the writers' strike. You can get them on Amazon Unbox for $1.99 an episode.

A bit of trivia: The two main characters, Leonard and Sheldon, are named after the actor/producer Sheldon Leonard.

Series 3 is underway, and one episode has Wil Wheaton...

I watch it religiously and not only do I know people like the characters on the show, I find myself more and more recognizing myself as one of the characters on the show. Depending on the episode and my own attitude that day the character changes but I can see a little bit of myself in all four of the geeks.

You ain't the only one! I relate also and watch every week. This week's was hilarious. I was so Sheldon....

My wife says I remind her of Sheldon alot. I see myself as more like Leonard.


Funniest show on TV (American TV, anyway.....)

My family and I have caught up thanks to Netflix, and can't wait for Season 3 to go to DVD!

This is one of the only sitcoms worth watching, IMO. It's worth tuning in just to see what T-shirt Sheldon will be wearing.

I've enjoyed each episode I've seen, and do indeed see a bit of myself and my buddies in each one of the cast.

My favorite this season is the episode a few weeks ago when Sheldon took a replica Green Lantern Power Battery to a mixer and actually picked up (accidentally) a woman was a classic! (If only he could figure out what he was supposed to do once she was at his place).

How is season four going?

Well, I still watch it with the remote control in hand so I can pause while I'm laughing so hard that I can't breathe let alone hear the next line of dialogue....pretty well I'd say. :)

Thanks, Lynora, that's good to know! :)

I can't wait to see it over here!


Love this show, best sitcom ever.

I just bought seasons 1-3 so I can watch them again in order this summer. I think it was renewed recently for 3 more seasons, I guess its doing rather well. ;)

I'm now predicting the following:

Sheldon winds up with lesley winkle
Leonard winds up with the north Korean spy who has had a kid by him in episode one.
Penny gets will Wheaton.
