I'm Sheldon

The Big Bang Theory - Season 1Some friends of mine at work told me I needed to watch The Big Bang Theory because I resembled one of the characters. After a couple of mentions of this, I gave in and got the first season from Netflix.

Before we started watching, I sat my wife down and told her we needed to figure out which character I resemble. Up to the task, we started the disc.

About 10 minutes into the first episode, we had a conversation like this:

Jenn: You're Sheldon.
Travis: What? Are you sure? I could be Leonard.
Jenn: You're Sheldon.
Travis: I dunno... HOLY CRAP I'M SHELDON.

After watching the first six episodes, I have to say that while I have some Leonard in me, I'm Sheldon. Like this video where Penny sits in Sheldon's seat... I think I've actually had this conversation, or something eerily like it. (Though mine was more around my parking spot at work than my seat at home.)

Anyway, it's a great show, so if you haven't seen it, check it out. I'll be watching the rest as they come in from Netflix.

In your defense you're not 100% Sheldon. He doesn't have the sarcasm you do.

I haven't seen this show, but it got me to thinking: I bet you would make a great television show writer. I'm sure the stuff you would come up with, e.g., based on yourself, past and present coworkers, friends, etc., would be hilarious. How about a comedy about software engineers!?
