I can't wait for this. I suspect it to be only a short appearance, you know how it is.
I wonder if he argues with Sheldon

I know some of you may hate TBBT as it stereotypes, I guess. But take it as it is.

nope, I hate it because it isn't funny imo

I hope this is some prank and he's not really doing it.. I hope I don't have to lose my respect for the guy

Why? He's already been on a variety of popular programs including the Simpsons, I don't regard TS as funny but I haven't lost any respect for him.

I'm looking forward to seeing him in the show

and Star Trek: The Next Generation, where he played poker with Data, Newton and Einstein (on the holodeck of course).

I understand what you mean, I'm not started a new debate on this but For me it started getting boring when Sheldon met Amy, since then episodes have mainly been about bloomin' relationships, exactly what I didn't want to happen. Oh well, I'm looking forward to Hawkings appearance.

I know he has neurological problems, but it is not nice to make fun of his eyes...

There was interest in having Newton and Einstein appear on TBBT as well but they weren't available.

It's only fitting since TBBT starred in Hawking's book.

You would lose your respect for someone because he'd star in a popular tv show? How does this make him less worthy of respect?

Anyway, I'm interested in seeing how this one turns out. Personally, I like watching TBBT.

I think it shows that Hawking has a sense of humor.

Probably the largest audience of TBBT is the set of folks it stereotypes.

Don't take it too seriously.

Everything on TV is stereotyped or exaggerated!
