Deb's Favorite Fictional Character --- Sheldon Cooper

Today's guest blogger is none other than Deb of Book Magic.  Deb is the whole reason I started blogging, so I owe her a big debt of gratitude.  I met her on the Barnes & Noble Book Club forums were we quickly became siblings, the royal family of Wordsmithonia.  I was king and as my sister, she was Princess Deb.  When she started her own blog, I wasn't even aware there was such a thing as book blogs.  I quickly realized how much fun she was having, and I figured there was no way I didn't want to be involved myself.  Deb has a terrific blog and more than anyone has added to my wish list.  She has introduced me to so many books and series that I have loved.  I'm sure she would love it, if you went on over and visited her for yourself.

My favorite fictional character is Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory.

Dr. Sheldon Cooper, played brilliantly by Jim Parsons, is a theoretical physicist with 2 doctoral degrees that he received by the time he was sixteen.

I love Sheldon because of his arrogance, the fact that he says whatever is on his mind, and has no concept of social skills and the human condition. He doesn't think anyone knows more than he does and can freak out if his routine is changed. 

His interactions with Penny, the waitress neighbor, are the funniest parts of the show. She is his only non-genius friend of which he never fails to remind her, but she often gets the best of him. I might not want Sheldon as a friend, but I love him on my television.

Here is a snippet of Sheldon and Penny (I tried to embed the video but it wouldn't let me.)

I'm kind of embarrassed to say I've never seen that TV show. My sister talks about it all the time, so I guess I should break down and watch it.

I'm practically in love with Sheldon; I adore that character so much, and Parsons does a fantastic job.

I've heard of this show but never watched it myself. Now I think I'll have to go check it out.

For some reason i don't think I have ever watched this show. I think it started when I wsn't in the mood for sticoms, I'm still not all that found of the new ones. I may have to watch an episode or two on line to see what I think.

Thanks Deb for making me think outside the box.

I love Sheldon! He's so dependably odd and superior. Great choice!
