The comedy on E4 that is not the science programme.
I love this. Sheldon is brilliant.

If you've not seen it try it.

OH is addicted to it! - it is often on in the background. It is quite witty.

Sheldon is brilliant!

I have the boxed sets and watch them whenever I need cheering up - I agree Sheldon is brilliant!

Have loved this for years......we even find ourselves saying Sheldonisms......

I've heard it being called "Friends with Geeks" smile. Sheldon lately has been getting on my nerves. I like Raj!

We love it. I read that it has led to a rise in the number of children studying physics at A level.

I've been watching a programme called Bluestone 42; an unlikely comedy about a bomb disposal unit in Afghanistan. Described as Mash meets Blackadder meets Miranda. It's on BBC3.

MASH now there's another great comedy. I said to DH the other day, that's one program that does need repeating

If you liked that you'd probably like Bluestone.

I've loved The Big Bang Theory ever since the beginning. I may have watched too much because my grandson is sometimes worryingly like Sheldon - is this evolution in action? grin

Hello Deeda, I think a lot of small boys are like Sheldon, its not a problem if they are under 12!
I still love the episode where Penny paints his sofa cushion - the look on his face as he states 'It dosn't feel right' is just like a toddler.

My vet was a bit put out last week when I suggested that there wasn't a lot of difference between him and his six year old son, but really he was just six years old but taller grin I have to admit that I totally identify with Sheldon wanting to answer all the questions on the quiz show. I suspect that I may never have been much of a team player.
