** ''Film/{{Her}}'' is more difficult to take seriously if one has seen the episode in which Raj falls in love with Siri.

* SleeperHit: The show opened to mediocre reviews (some of which were very harsh) and this was after a highly disliked [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original pilot]]. But the show built up some steam and when it came back after the [[TVStrikes 2007 Writers Strike]] it managed to actually ''improve'' in quality, unlike a lot of other shows. The ratings gradually increased until they took a small hit moving from Mondays to Thursdays in the fourth season, but after a {{Syndication}} deal they started breaking records as a scripted show, they are the first since ''{{Friends}}'' to dethrone ratings giants like ''Series/AmericanIdol''.

** In the episode "The Justice League Recombination", the gang, plus Penny's boyfriend Zack, dress up as [[Comicbook/JusticeLeague The Justice League of America]] for a costume contest, with Raj, unwillingly, dressing up as Comicbook/{{Aquaman}} and later finding it ridiculous that their Aquaman will be Indian. Cut to 2014, when it's announced that ''BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' will introduce an Aquaman played by Hawaiian actor Jason Momoa.

Which is brilliant because ... ?
* FridgeBrilliance: Real discussions in a comic shop usually involve the merits of real comic book series, which would be problematic from a copyright perspective and inaccessible to non-fans. That's why they usually wind up making fun of how nerdy comic book fans (and themselves) are instead.

*** Sheldon may be a genuinely nice person. He's genuinely concerned when he thinks Penny's been hurt, runs to get her and takes her to hospital. Rather than just telling Leonard that he wouldn't cover for him sleeping with Priya, he constructed an elaborate and detailed cover to help him. When Leonard lied to Penny about her singing, Sheldon could again have simply said he didn't care and told the truth, but instead chose to follow through and help. He went to great extremes to get Howard's forgiveness when he'd ruined his chances of getting security clearance. When he felt that it would be construed as disloyal to have dinner with Penny, he almost killed himself trying to keep both she and Leonard happy. He couldn't ignore the possibility that Amy was hurt when he didn't hear from her. As much as he may pretend otherwise, he actually cares about his friends. When given the option of being trapped in one of the coldest parts of the planet with anyone, he chose his three friends. He maybe even values their friendship more than any of the rest of them and, even if it may be seen as condescending, is the least frequent to ever intentionally insult any of them (try watching an episode and counting the number of insults Sheldon gives that would actually be considered an insult to his mind, then compare them against those Leonard makes).

** Leslie Winkle: OnlySaneWoman or an immature, inconsiderate bitch who gets off of any punishment for immature behaviour in the workplace? Not to mention the cold way she treats Leonard and Howard when she's in a relationship with them.

** One of the answers to this is, of course, that it's a SitCom and sitcoms always make fun of the main characters for who they are, be they [[Series/{{Frasier}} stuffy intellectuals]], [[Series/WillAndGrace gay people]], [[Series/{{Friends}} self-absorbed twenty-somethings]] or (in pretty much every other sitcom ever) [[Series/{{Roseanne}} working-class suburbia]]. The response to this argument is generally "But this is different! Now they're making fun of ''me''!"

* CharacterShilling: Sure, Kaley Cuoco is definitely conventionally attractive, but the fact that the entire male cast think so can get a little grating. It gets more annoying when she gets away with things that no-one else would because of her looks, or when she calls Leonard out for doing things she herself did.
