I was talking to a co-worker about last night’s episode of The Big Bang Theory. I think Sheldon is such a flawless character. Actually, with the exception of Leonard (Johnny Galecki), I think every character currently on the show is perfectly cast. Leonard is okay, he just seems to try to “act” geeky, whereas the rest of the cast just flows, like they really are that person.
The conversation progressed to our all-time favorite TV characters. Mine are as follows…
Starting off, of course, Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory (Jim Parsons). Flawless!
Sheldon: Well, well, well, if it isn’t Wil Wheaton. The Green Goblin to my Spider-Man, the Pope Paul V to my Galileo, the Internet Explorer to my Firefox!
Dr. Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds Matthew Gray Gubler- For someone so goofy in “real life”, he plays a genius perfectly.
Dr. Spencer Reid: Looking at their case histories, both men filed dozens of harassment and nuisance lawsuits against each other, including unfounded claims of burglary and trespassing. Then, in 2011, Matthias Lee filed a civil complaint against Clark Howard “to kiss his ass”. Clark Howard responded with a motion to go…
[Looks at the folder, trails off]
You can’t actually do that with the male anatomy.
(Plus, do yourself a favor and watch this. MGG is hilarious… www.youtube.com/watch?v=uokBDwzfD9Q)
Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother – I’m a huge fan of post-Doogie Neil Patrick Harris. I think he’s awesome.
Barney: “Jesus waited three days to come back to life. It was perfect! If he had only waited one day, a lot of people wouldn’t have even heard he
died. They’d be all, “Hey Jesus, what up?” and Jesus would probably
be like, “What up? I died yesterday!”
and they’d be all, “Uh, you look pretty alive to me, dude…” and
then Jesus would have to explain how he was resurrected, and how it was a
miracle, and the dude’d be like “Uhh okay, whatever you say, bro…”
And he’s not gonna come back on a Saturday. Everybody’s busy, doing chores, workin’ the loom, trimmin’ the beard,
NO. He waited the perfect number of days, three. Plus it’s Sunday, so
everyone’s in church already, and they’re all in there like “Oh no, Jesus
is dead”, and then BAM! He bursts in the back door, runnin’ up the aisle,
everyone’s totally psyched, and FYI, that’s when he invented the high five.
That’s why we wait three days to call a woman, because that’s how long Jesus
wants us to wait…. True story.”
And finally, the wonderful, eternal, Ms. Karen Walker from Will & Grace. Nothing says awesome chick more than this wealthy boozehound.
Karen Walker: That’s like saying Pradas are just shoes, or vodka is just a morning beverage!
