  1. Hey, can you make a list of top ten similarities between the big bang theory and how i met your mother

    To begin with, there is
    Sheldon and Monica’s obsession with cleaning and organising things

    Penny and rachel being waitresses
    Leonard – Penny and Ross Rachel on again and off again relationship
    Song about a cat
    Soft kitty and Smelly cat
    Raj and chandler are thought to be gay by a lot of people.

    And many more

  2. As much as I like the show don’t think Sheldon should get his own series Sheldon’s character is funny but I would hate to have to deal with him in real life

  3. What about the show in Australia that was an exact copy of the big bang theory that couldn’t be sued because of reasons but the show got canceled because the actors found out about the big bang theory so they all quit. I might have just had a weird dream so don’t take me seriously… but seriously my dreams are becoming a problem. I think i need to start drinking again.

  4. Kaley Cuoco’s Penny from Te Big Bang Theory and Bridget Hennessy from 8 Simple Rules are pretty much the same damn character. They’re simply the dumb eye candy with little real use.
