Well. I feel a little let down. Where was Evil Wil Wheaton? They made him a good guy? Perhaps Sheldon has landed in the Mirror Universe where Good Wil Wheaton lives. It must be more fun to play an Evil version of yourself than a Good version.

You should get a t-shirt that says: NO TOUCHING! Or this one: http://www.thatawesomeshirt.com/shirt/289/arrested_development_mr_banana_grabber_no_touching_my_banana

Like they say, if you and I are in the woods and a bear begins to chase us, I don't need to run faster than the bear, just faster than you. You don't have to go incognito, you just need to hang out with bigger celebrities. I wonder if Felicia was insulted. :-P

I'm not sure why you are hand wringing about this at all. Yeah, you are a celebrity. But the dick move is not taking "No" for an answer. You aren't under any obligation to sign a thing. It's a courtesy you extend under appropriate conditions. Saying "No." is not being a dick. I think you should look at it as a fame barometer. There is apparently a market for your signature on a glossy. Enjoy the positive. Discard the negative. The people doing that are probably either mentally unwell or are professional celebrity autograph stalkers. My advice, leave when Nathan Fillion leaves. LOL.

This will only be cool if the stunts in the movie are REAL and not the result of computers. These days, I'll bet stunt people are a bit grumpy because who can tell what was a real person risking life and limb and what is the result of computer animation. It makes me wonder how long it will be before all stunts are computer generated.

Mike, buy a dictionary. But it could be that the phrase "chink in the armor" will go the way of the word "niggardly" which also has NOTHING to do with race.

It's interesting that your line reading "I'm living rent free, right here." wasn't the intended line. Because it's my favorite line of the episode. Well, second favorite. Sheldon's line about playing the dead meemaw card cracked me up.

They can only make a new Star Trek movie or show if they use absolutely NO FRAKING lens flares ever again. Star Fleet in JJ's universe seems to think that lights burning out your retinas at every possible angle makes for great cinematography, when really it just results in migraines for the audience.

I can see parallels of Charo and Paul Reubens. Neither are appreciated as much as they ought to be. Charo's real talent was rarely on display on TV. She is a phenomenal guitarist. But to promote herself, she chose her hootchy cootchie bit.

I read that somewhere. It was a three-day shoot. Note to future TV writers facing a three day shoot and no budget, don't do clip shows. Do an episode with good writing on very few sets with very few characters. Babylon 5 had an episode (Intersections in Real Time) that I think had two or three speaking parts (only one of which was a regular character), two extras, another series regular in a non-speaking roll, one set, and very little special effects. It was still good because the writing was good. They shot each of the four acts as a single take, so there weren't a lot of set ups. The effect was more like a stage play. Low budget? Yep. But effective.

Shades of Gray is actually the absolute worst episode. It's a fraking clip show. Lazy. Unimaginative. Lousy.

Please forgive my off-topic post, but I noticed a few avatars are not generic. Yet when I go to my TypePad profile, I don't have the option to change the photo. Am I missing something or is this only available to paid TypePad members.

Even if you are relieved, revenue loss sucks from speaking, signatures, and selling your book. It's interesting that Denise Crosby, who left much earlier than you, does get invited. I love that they said they couldn't afford you. I have no idea what monetary value you place on personal appearances, but I'd assume that your day rate is not unreasonable or uncustomary. My guess is that was a stock answer. Does Rick Berman work for them? LOL

I think I missed something. Why were you barred from the Creations events? What'd you do? Sit in the Captain's chair? (Sorry. Couldn't resist.)

I bought your audiobook. But your ordering process is annoying. I appreciate the humor of the confirmation page, but it gets in the way of actually telling me what will happen. I can't tell for example, how soon I will get the file. I can't tell if it will be emailed (I hope not) or if it will just be a link. (My mail server eats huge files for lunch, so this is an issue.)

It's cool that they used her voice in the upcoming Star Trek feature.

Mother FU****. I had gotten to this point in my life without being Rickrolled. Betrayed! Boy, I'll bet he'd given up on hope of working again.

You're lucky you aren't gay or that your loved ones aren't gay. (I'm assuming.) Those of us who are feel very conflicted. On the one hand, we feel elated that Barack Obama won. But it has come at a price. He said he does not support gay marriage, but has weasled by saying he was against proposition 8. Unfortunately, his weak, mixed message and his unwillingness to come out more strongly against this hateful amendment led proponents of it to use his face and his voice in robocalls in California to African Americans. Partly due to this, and partly do to his candidacy, African Americans voted in record numbers and they voted for Obama and for hate against gays with Proposition 8. But I am still elated that Barack Obama will be the 44th President of the United States. But I am sad that he won't probably be of much help to gays and lesbians in our quest for equality. And I'm even sadder that my marriage (last Friday) may be invalidated by popular demand. They don't even know me.

Maher's show was great! I especially liked Dana Gould. Very funny and very on point. For those of you who missed it, you can get the podcast of the show for free on iTunes. It should be available in a few days.
