I know I may get my nerd card revoked for admitting this, but I was never really a big fan of the show, it was just kind of blah to me, nothing all that special and/or funny. I just couldn't understand all the hype, what was the big deal about this show, why did some many of my friends love it.
The other day I found out exactly why so many people liked it, and it wasn't because I brought myself to watch it to find out, but rather I was sitting at the computer when it came on and I was too lazy to reach for the remote to change the channel. I just went about my business as usual and let the show occupy the background, not really giving it a second thought.
At first it wasn't a big deal, I didn't even notice it, but then something crazy happened, I found my swivel chair turned around facing the television and watching the show instead of playing around in cyberspace. I was completely disrespecting Facebook and all the other random nonsense I partake in when I’m browsing the web, including my favorite porn sites…which by the way, I only go to for the articles.
It wasn't because of David from Roseanne, and it wasn't because I felt obligated to like it because I consider myself a nerd, but rather because of this one character that stood out above all the rest and actually maybe me laugh out loud…or LOL to you youngins.
This character’s name is Sheldon Cooper, and I found him to be freaking hilarious and oh so entertaining. He is not like anyone I've ever seen before, he spoke my language and shared my interest, he is my idol…if he told me to smoke I would, that’s how cool I think he is.
Now I can’t get enough of this fantastic dude, he is like the crack to my addict. I am jonesing for him as we speak, I may just have to go sell my DVD player in the hood so that I can buy the DVD box sets…oh wait, that wouldn't really work. Damn it you druggies, why do you make it look so easy!
Needless to say I am now a fan and will be watching the show religiously, well that is as long as he is on it, if he leaves I leave. Do you hear me producers, this is no “That ‘70s Show” and he is no Eric Forman, without him you have no show and I will be gone like that last piece of cake at a fat man convention.
Also, to all you hardheaded holdouts, give in and seek out the Sheldon, trust me you won’t be sorry. This is coming from a manly man, well okay not really manly, but I do like football if that counts for anything. So check it out and see what all the hype is about, it’s totally warranted.
Oh yeah, not only is the Sheldon character funny as poop which keeps your funny bone well fed and satisfied, the Penny chick is hot as hello operator and makes for some great eye candy. So you get funny and honey all in one show, does it get any better than this?
