    I'm like that too. The only show I've enjoyed past season 4 is How I Met Your Mother, because lets be honest.... it's the best sitcom on TV right now.

    As much as i love BBT, and enjoy it, i hate episodes like this..

    Yes we get it, you have the money to advertise the game into a whole episode but dear god..

    people are still playing swtor? i thought all the realms were underpopulated and people were begging for mergers. id guess it will be f2p within a year, dragon age 2 had better sales retention that swtor.

    Please do not pop into a thread solely to bash the game. Clearly there is a large playerbase still playing the game. - Cula

    Probably nothing. Did anyone else notice that the full title was never mentioned? It was always refereed to as "The Star Wars Game" where as the other popular MMO was mentioned by name?

    From a screen writers stance would you make the characters say the full title? Star Wars The Old Republic is a tad bit more of a mouthful.

    I've been a BBT fan since the start, I loved this episode considering they featured SW:ToR tho they became Republic.... and were only level 15. The nice part is that they really used the game tho.

    SMALL SPOILER: The part where they wake up you can see them being disconnected from the servers for being afk to long, you see that on the laptops.

    Except BBT averages 16 million US viewers an episode, SP averages 2-3 million US viewers. If you don't like the show, fine, but stop spreading generalizations that aren't true.

    I remember the Age of Conan and WoW troll ERP episodes. Hopefully this one will be just as good. =P

    Sheldon and Howard GF's ruined the show, they introduced those feminine characters to attract more female viewers. The show focus always were about the 4 guys and Penny, now there is alot of more lame romance stuff and less Sheldon awkwardness

    Sadly the innocent ignorance of Bernadett(her not understanding Howards jokes ect) and the awkwardness of Sheldon seem to be waning in some episodes but yet fully there in others, it makes me rather sad. I like Amy a lot though, I feel her presence and her awkwardness allows for them to develop Sheldon with out keeping him completely pigeon holed.
    As for prot... haha losers he dmg needs a nerf with the intercept shield bash wtf silence crit a clothie like a mofo.
    Wow.

    I didn't think it was utilized as well as Age of Conan was or WoW.

    They could have used any game, or as Sheldon did listed any Star Wars thing since it was just about the guys playing like they used to before they had girlfriends, where as the AoC episode was about the main female character Penny actually playing it and using it as an escape and the WoW one was about one of the guys getting in trouble for having sex with a troll online.

    I loved it, but the irony of the whole episode was Raj, yelling about the good old days when nobody had girlfriends. That's when most people say the show was at it's best, just the 4 guys being major geeks! I love the show and my wife and i are planning on my the whole thing on blue ray soon.

    I agree. I really love the first three seasons but now the show is more like another version of friends. It´s just relationship problems week after week.
    Another thing i don´t like about the last two seasons is that the focus went from "we laugh with the geeks" to "we laugh about the geeks".
    It was clever in the beginning but they catered to the mass audience (and succeeded with that when you look at the ratings) but in that the show lost most of what made it special.

    By no-one, do you mean an avg of 15M viewers weekly? It's no.1 rated primetime show on Thursdays.

    Nah, i'm there with you as well. The show attempts to be smart and funny, but ends up just being awkward and stoic. We get it, stereotypes are fun, but ever try and work some actual humor into it?

    Anyways, it will be good for SWTOR and its customer base to have this happen. I'm not sure how many people watch bbt, but it can't do anything but help.

    This is obviously a publicity stunt, called "product placement" its very common on series and sadly starting to get his way into movies.
