Dear The Big Bang Theory Writers:
It’s called a “character bible,” assholes. Writing 101. Yes, I realize the fact that I’m venting about a TV show makes me more than a little Sheldonesque, but, LIKE SHELDON, I am a TAURUS.
You guys dropped the ball big time on tonight’s show. (Should be called “The Big Ball-Dropping Theory”.) FYI, Penny KNOWS Sheldon’s birthday, because she did his astrological chart! (That’s how we found out he was a Taurus.)
Seriously. If you’d like to, oh, I don’t know, PAY ME to schlep my fat ass out to California to check continuity for you, I’d be happy to do it. (Anyone? Anyone?)
Like the time you screwed up continuity with Sheldon’s father (having left/died). And the cats. (Sheldon was allergic and Leonard went emo and looked into hypoallergenic cats, then Sheldon went emo when he and Amy broke up and he adopted the Manhattan Project plus Zazzles.)
Those are just a few right off the top of my head.
If I did that kind of shit on a regular basis in my series books, I’d get skewered by readers.
FYI: I use Scrivener to write in, so it’s EASY to keep shit straight! (Imagine me venting aka Professor Crawley…)
Do NOT screw with a slightly OCD Taurus writer’s show, m’kay? Thanks.
