Author's Note: Coda (and spoilers for) Episode 6.21, "The Closure Alternative".
You know what? Sheldon watches too much TV. I've dedicated the last several minutes to compiling a list of all the television programs that he watches live, watches on demand, or is currently waiting for the next season to start: The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Downton Abbey, Revolution, Grimm, Mythbusters, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Sherlock, Orphan Black, Jeopardy, Revenge of the Nerds (a show he loves to hate), Unforgettable, How It's Made, Being Human, and NOVA.
And these are just the shows he's mentioned. This says nothing of Fringe and Alpha, two shows he is mourning with constant rewatches. Granted, Downton Abbey may be on that list because of me, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians smells a lot like Rajesh. But Sheldon's weekly consumption of TV media—not to include comic books, video games, movies and seasons of shows he regularly revisits on DVD—take up an inordinate amount of his time. It's small wonder that he fails to see the importance of putting these pastimes aside occasionally for the consideration of more significant pursuits, like, say, buying a home, acquiring a life partner and engaging in the carnal arts.
Perhaps I should have spent today dedicated to re-wiring his brain from his TV addiction. I'm already beginning to have doubts if the closure experiment even worked.
