The Big Bang Theory "One Ring" episode Can't Post

Just came across "The Precious Fragmentation" on tv, where the guys find the One Ring at a garage sale. I love this episode! Cool

Yeah its a great One... [In reply to] Can't Post

I have that one on the DVR as my son and I watch it all the time. We love BBT and of course you have to just squee with joy when the Ring comes out of the box...! And them reciting the Ring poem too.

Sheldon makes a great Gollum doesn't he?! Laugh

Is there a Tolkien topic that you have wanted to look into more deeply, and write about your thoughts on it? If so, we'd like to hear from you for the next TORn Amateur Symposium- coming in November. Happy writing!

Yeah, I love that one [In reply to] Can't Post

When they recite the ring poem I can't stop myself finishing it off with "In the land of Mordor where the shadows lie." and then my sister throws a cushion at me and tells me to stop with the Tolkien weirdness, some people just don't understand.

In dreams I will find my way.

Yep. I get the DVDs for each season. [In reply to] Can't Post


And that one was an instant classic!

I love Sheldon!...Though it may be somewhat narcissistic of me since I recognize a lot of myself in him, but not this Sheldon! ;)

I like that one! [In reply to] Can't Post

That's a nice episode and made me laugh quite a bit too. But it seems focused on Peter Jackson's LOTR trilogy and there is no mention of the book at all. It seems that the characters are movie fans first and foremost. Anyway, I like this series and catch some episodes one in a while!

We love Big Bang! [In reply to] Can't Post

My mom and I watch all the new episodes on CBS and we watch the syndication episodes in the afternoon. I love this episode and love Sheldon's performance of Gollum. I also love the part where they do the ring spell and then say "Holy C--p are we nerdy." Wonderful line but sad too, because I always do it with them!! Wink

I sometimes wish I could go and hang out with Leonard and Sheldon and the gang since they are always saying that Penny, as a girl, never has a clue. She doesn't like collecting movie stuff, she doesn't like Indiana Jones, she doesn't know who Stan Lee is, I do!
I think they would enjoy hanging out with this girl. I hope so, because I sure enjoy hanging out with them at every opportunity.

Yeah, I love it when Raj says that line :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

and I know how you feel, I usually yell at the tv when Penny (and Amy) don't get their references. And now Amy has ruined Raiders of the Lost Ark too--I saw it the other day and kept thinking about her comments. Mad

Thanks to Wiki... [In reply to] Can't Post

The rules of Rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock are:
  • Scissors cut paper
  • Paper covers rock
  • Rock crushes lizard
  • Lizard poisons Spock
  • Spock smashes scissors
  • Scissors decapitate lizard
  • Lizard eats paper
  • Paper disproves Spock
  • Spock vaporizes rock
  • Rock crushes scissors

There are ten possible pairings of the five gestures; each gesture beats two of the other gestures and is beaten by the remaining two.

:D

I loved Leonard as Frodo [In reply to] Can't Post

especially the lines, "Because I'm Frodo!" and "That's how we roll in The Shire."

I meeped when they I saw it! [In reply to] Can't Post

What I love about the Big Bang Theory is that they usually do their research regarding nerdy stuff. Even if I have caught out Sheldon a few times.

Does anyone remember the episode where they referred to orcs as "magical"? That was a bit off in my opinion...
