Tears of Holiday Joy - The Big Bang Theory and More

The Big Bang Theory - The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis - Ep. 211

I'm not sure if I was crying because I was laughing so hard or if I was crying because I was so happy for Sheldon when Penny gave him the autographed knapkin (by Sheldon's hero Leonard Nemoy) for Christmas. I think it was a little bit of both.

I think I cried laughing/cried cried even more when Sheldon tried to return the generosity with baskets and baskets of soap AND a hug.

It was also nice to see a hottie nerd (Michael Trucco, Battlestar Galactica) around with Leonard and Penny both having a mancrush. Too bad we found out hottie nerd was married, and this was AFTER his date with Penny.

More on How I Met Your Mother, Worst Week, Chuck:

How I Met Your Mother - Little Minnesota - Ep. 411

We do NOT say aboot. Or oot. And everyone is afraid of the dark.

But yes, we do say "sorry" for everything. Even when it's clearly not our fault.

Chuck - Chuck Versus Santa Claus - Ep. 211

Someone crashes into the store and takes it hostage. Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays!

Chuck and Sarah bond during the hostage and the sparks continue to fly. Emmett manages to promote the store during the hostage while Tony Hale still manages to steal the spotlight from his small guest role. Adam Baldwin still grunts with the best emotion possible as Casey. Ellie and Captain Awesome are finally brought into the Buy More mix just as the hostage happened. And Morgan for once, saves the day! And Big Mike and Captain Awesome make for awesome tackling buddies! Plus Reginald VelJohnson! Whoa! Back in his Die Hard role! And no Urkel in sight! Woo!

I liked the hostage twist involving the Fulcrum and compromising the Intersect Chuck but I liked the little dark intel Chuck sees when Sarah decides to kill the Fulcrum/cop agent a point blank range. All to keep the secret of Chuck safe and to save his life. Still. Ouch.

Worst Week - The Gift - Ep. 110

Are you KIDDING ME? How cursed IS this family?

Sam buys a Cello for Melanie and this time ANGELA has HER worst week and breaks it.

Meanwhile, Sam convinces Dick to buy a car for Angela and manages to get it stolen right under his face (and bow).

Unbelievable. Yet unbelievably hilarious!

I don't watch Big Bang Theory but I may have to watch this episode, just because I can't imagine Michael Trucco as any type of nerd. Love him!

Well, he's the cool nerd. But a physicist nonetheless.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Linz, the show is great overall but you should definitely at least watch this one. As the title of this blog states, it is more than “tapeworthy”. I love the show The Big Bang Theory and am very glad I work for and have DISH. With their Sling Adapter, I can watch on my smartphone or iPad, without completing an offer or downloading anything. They’re even offering it free for new customers, http://bit.ly/k1ZtGO.
