The Big Bang Theory 8.07

In the opening scene, we heard how Bernadette was selected as one of science’s 5o sexiest women, which causes Bernadette, Amy and Penny to have a small debate in there are few women in STEM fields.  Later on over drinks, Bernadette tells Amy that the Sexiest Science Women Article had been pulled, which causes Amy to reveal that she’s the reason why the article was pulled.

Amy says that she feels that the article reflects negatively on female scientists; which caused Bernadette state how Amy is jealous because nobody – meaning Sheldon – wants Amy to flaunt her sexuality. #Shamy #RelationshipProblems anyone?

Meanwhile, Penny gets herself into a sticky situation by having flirted too well with a doctor.  This causes the doctor to crush hard on Penny hard and lock the guys in his basement.

Netflix has been Gilmored

One of the best mother-daughter TV shows has finally arrived on Netflix: Gilmore Girls.  Sure, Gilmore Girls has been on DVD for years and off the air for seven; but being on Netflix allows more people to enjoy the Friday night dinners, the pop culture references, and the fights between Luke and Taylor.

Okay, I’ll be honest: one of my favorite things about the TV series are all of the interest things that happen at Friday Night Dinners.  For example: the conversation they had on anvils:

And then there is the Halloween candy-thumping ball conversation:

Finally, there is their biggest fight that involves 20-some years worth of anger:

Everyone, be honest with yourselves: you’re like me and wish that your family dinners where this interesting.

And then there are all of the important life lessons, like the 18 problems only bookworms would understand:

So it’s pretty easy to say that Netflix has been Gilmored.

Subcribing to the NY Times

When I was at Bemidji State University taking Mass Communication courses, I had to
subscribe to New York Times print paper and I miss the days of that.

A screen grab of the 9/11/2014 issue of the NY Times

What I do miss, the most, about those days was reading the newspaper in print and getting my hands dirty, to a degree, from the ink.  Thankfully, I finally decided to subscribe to The New York Times digital subscription.  More specifically, the digital opinion option.

Right now, I’m just pay 99₡ for the next 12 weeks.  I figure that spending the .0825 per week isn’t the worst way spend some money.  The downside is that I only have unlimited access to the opinion articles and can only read 10 articles from other sections of the newspaper.

Regardless, it’s still nice being about to read articles like “Generation LGBTQIA” and “California Bill Sets Sights On Curbing Campus Sexual Assault” in different sections.  I’m hoping that I’ll actually utilize.  If I actually use it, hopefully I’ll share them.
