A Big Bang Christmas
You know your favorite television series has arrived when The Wall Street Journal takes notice, and Big Bang Theory has indeed been so covered, as you can read here. How appropriate that this article (thanks, LaToya!) should center around Big Bang's Christmas episode, being broadcast tonight on CBS. (If you missed this Yuletide Theory, you can catch it on CBS.com.) But Spoiler Alert! the article gives away plot details. The above photograph shows Big Bang co-creator/producer Chuck Lorre and series stars Johnny Galecki (Leonard) and Jim Parsons (Sheldon). Don't miss the article and don't miss the show, and also be sure and catch today's Big Bang posting on the blog of fellow Big Bang Headbanger Ed Squair. (Ed's post will be up at 8:00 pm Pacific Time, concurrent with the broadcast of tonight's episode.) PS Thanks to intrepid field reporter Russell Miller (thanks, Russ!), I've been notified that Chuck Lorre did indeed name the lead Big Bang characters after legendary TV comedy producer-director-creator Sheldon Leonard, according to Parade magazine. Were he ever to meet Sheldon and Leonard, Sheldon Leonard would undoubtedly say, "Out you two pixies go, through the door or out the window!" And that, as some Tulgey Wood visitors will already recognize, is another Christmas reference.
