As for the show's other big storyline heading into season three, executive producer Bill Prady spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming hook-up between Leonard and Penny.

"There’s been two years of foreplay and the feeling was that it’s time," Prady said about these two getting together. "We know how Penny feels and we know how Leonard feels. And when he comes back from the North Pole [in the season premiere], she’s figured everything out and thinks they should just got for it. But a Sheldon crisis keeps Leonard from being able to move forward.”

The flagship Hollywood motion picture film studios have in the past produced many entertaining movies based on nerd and geek characters. I had no problem with that, in fact I support good comedy. However, my gripe with The Big Bang Theory (CBS) was "Paris Hilton" impersonator Kaley Cuoco's attitude and behaviour at the 2009 Comic Con. The stunt she pulled "Flirting with the fan" This was an attempt to give reassurance to her hardcore male fan base that she had no interest in nerds or geeks. Kaley Cuoco cannot have her cake and eat it. It is obvious that she will feel more in her comfort zone working with the likes of Nick Carter or Russell Brand. I had been the shows biggest supporter up to that point. I was naive to have believed Bill Prady's press statements that the premise of The Big Bang Theory (CBS) was to celebrate nerds and not to mock them. It became apparent to me that Prady's statements were based on studio spin. It is common knowledge that when launching or promoting a brand, most public relation experts will advise you to be cautious not to contradict your brand, as you will leave yourself wide open to public scrutiny and ridicule. Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady the grand old dukes of spin. It will sooner or later become apparent to Chuck Lorre Productions, CBS, and Warner Bros that spin is only effective up to a certain point, depending on who your target audiences are. Sophisticated audiences can smell a rotten egg from a far distance. Chaim Paddaman

TBBT Quotes

Penny: Here's a question-- as an alien pretending to be human, are you planning to engage in any post-prom mating rituals with Amy?
Sheldon: There are post-prom mating rituals?
Penny: Not always. Unless your date drives a van with an air mattress, then always.
Sheldon: Well, if it's part of the prom experience, then I'm open to it.
Penny: You're kidding.
Sheldon: I may be an alien, but I have urges.If Amy wants to copulate by firing her eggs into space, well, then, I will happily catch them with the reproductive sac on my upper flermin. I'm not the best at reading facial cues, but I can see that you're a little turned on.

Penny: I always tear up when the Grinch's heart grows three sizes.
Sheldon: Tears seem appropriate. Enlargement of the heart muscle, or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, is a serious disease which can lead to congestive heart failure.
