Look forward to the Wrath of Wheaton! Great trailer in the vein of TWOK!

This looks fun. Somebody’s gotta give Wil a role that’s nothing like Trek. He’s ready and he’s good enough to move on.

I love Wil Wheaton, but I wish he’d lose that “scruffy” look!

Big Weaton fan – glad he’s getting work
where we can see him, whether that be
Trek, Big Bang, or anything else.

Can someone get the “promo” up on YouTube independantly? I’m sick of CBS restricting their promos. What’s the point?

Don’t they realise other countries will benifit from seeing a “promo” and be hanging out when the episode is released world wide?

As is it is here in Oz, BBT is going great guns and the Nine Network is pushing new episodes in prime time not to far behind the U.S.

I loved Sheldons and “WHEATONS!!!!” first encounter, can’t wait for a rematch!

I believe it is pronounced WHil WHeaton

Martin why are you saying it like that? Why are you putting so much emphasis on the “H”?

Also, I love the shirt Wheaton was wearing in the first episode. Juice-able fruits beware.

Darth, you’re acting wHeird.

CmdrR, You must have missed him recently as a homeless suspect on CSI, a serial killer on Criminal Minds, and a computer geek criminal on Leverage. He is moving on.

I’m sorry.. I just don’t like Wheaton. I’m glad you all find something in his acting and presence, but he does nothing for me. In a way, he’s my Lady GaGa of Star Trek.

I do love me some Penny though. YUM!

I don’t get it. I receive CBS, NBC, ABC & FOX on my cable and sat TV here in Canada yet I am not allowed to watch anything from any of them on the internet. bunch of morons.

# 12, concur!

Go Evil Wheaton! You rock!

Jorg… I hate to say it but I’m afraid Lady Gaga actually has some talent under all that schtick shit, and Wil Wheaton is just a funny MF if you read his blog and Memories of the Future. He really did get f—-d by the writers on TNG. I’m a big Wheaton fan now and I’m not even a gamer. He’s a fan like one of us.

“synopsis”, not synopses. Just a small nit.

I. Cannot. Wait.

I am looking forward to Monday.

Normally, I can’t stand TBBT… …but the Wil Wheaton episode was quite enjoyable, so this might be worth watching. It will probably require some reconnaisance work if I want to catch it, though, as the Swedish air dates are likely completely different from the U.S. and U.K. ones.
