I’ve been meaning to post something about The Big Bang Theory for a while now but it’s taken me ‘till now to really understand what it is about the show that makes me uncomfortable. I’m not exactly a believer in the whole “only write about the things you like, don’t…

Wow, I actually like the comparison to Abed a lot. I’ve seen both shows, but comparing Sheldon’s portrayal to Abed’s is pretty eye-opening. I honestly don’t really think of Abed’s Aspergers when I watch Community, because it’s not an issue in the show. The characters know about Abed’s different way of looking at things, and they embrace it as a part of who he is. Contrast Sheldon, who’s always seen as ‘weird’ for being different. Haha, I dunno if I can watch the show the same way again…
