(S03E10) Do you think it's weird that Sheldon and Penny seem to be having more and more storylines together, but I can't actually remember the last episode in which she and Leonard shared a scene alone? When I did a poll a few episodes ago asking if you think Sheldon and Penny are going to get together, nearly half of you said "yes." I don't necessarily agree, but is it a problem when your character has more chemistry with her boyfriend's friend than her actual boyfriend?

Right now, it's still working for the show, but I'm not sure how much longer they can continue having Leonard and Penny involved in a "relationship" in which they barely speak. However, if they break up, then it would be more difficult for Sheldon and Penny to have so many scenes together, and a great deal of the comedy would be eliminated right there. It's an interesting place where the writers find themselves right now.

Chuck Lorre's censored vanity card

chuck lorre; vanity card At the end of each episode of The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, producer/creator Chuck Lorre has a "vanity card" that says something different each week. I usually pause my TiVo to read what it says, not realizing that he posts each and every one of them on his website.

This week's vanity card for The Big Bang Theory is pretty juicy. So juicy, in fact, that CBS wouldn't let him air it. The original card explained how CBS censored a joke at the climax of the show where Cousin Leo blames his fake drug addiction on a molester named Chaplain Horrigan. Lorre writes, "In the original shooting script the make-believe molester was called Father Horrigan." But, he says, CBS didn't want to offend Catholic viewers by suggesting that priests are known for molesting little boys. Lorre's complaint is prolific and quite funny, you can read the entire vanity card here. I have also placed a graphic of the card after the jump, just in case it gets taken down from his website (though, I doubt that will happen).
