    He plays the non-sexual Sheldon character so well, it's hard to see him identify with any sexualy preference.

    This wasn't exactly a big secret. When someone thanks their "prtner" at the Emmy's, I don't think people assume it's a business partner.

    I agree with the above though, I am surprised he is 39. Certainly doesn't look it.

    He's super funny, but he's always looked a little old for the part to me. Look at the lengths they go to to hide his receding hairline. icon_razz.gif

    I moved into this new condo on January 7. I had the cable and the DVR installed that week.

    I have literally not turned them on yet.

    Maybe gay fans looking for courage to accept themselves? It may seem trivial or shallow, but it can actually make a difference for some people.

    It's really funny, very quick and witty, with lots of pop culture references, some of which go right over my head. The bf doesn't like it so it stacks up on the TiVo and I watch it when he's not around.

    Not Jack Black. Joel McHale, Chevy Chase and others.

    Well so much for that. NBC Seattle is the channel for Community and the guide says it's not broadcasting it.

    I'm leaving the cable co next week for Telus OPTIK TV so maybe I can get it.

    If we have gotten to the point where an announcement of this sort makes no difference, it may indicate progress.

    Since I TiVo everything I don't really know when it is actually broadcast, but all of the US shows are wrapping up for the season. It may be just off until the fall.
