randomly and serendipitiously caught an episode of Big Bang Theory on CBS while in the US, and it left a unique enough impression that I started watching the rest of it now that I’m back home. Really liking it so far. Also on the to-watch list is the entire series of Lost. Yes, I’m that […]

lol internet
