The TARDIS Gets Some Love on THE BIG BANG THEORY
Doctor Who continues to work its way into mainstream American pop culture.
The world's longest-running science fiction series received another primetime TV shout-out, this time on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory. In last night's episode, "The Holographic Excitation," characters Sheldon Cooper, Rajesh Koothrappali and Howard Wolowitz are sitting around discussing plans for their Halloween party.
On the subject of featuring a photo booth at the party, Raj flips through a catalog and suggests the booth could be "creepy like a mummy's tomb or else they have the TARDIS from Doctor Who."
"A TARDIS makes no sense," counters Sheldon. "It's a time machine from a science fiction show. It has nothing to do with Halloween. That being said, if you don't get a TARDIS, you stink and your whole party stinks."
Raj asks Howard if he has a preference, who merely shrugs and tells him to get the TARDIS. Sheldon approves wholeheartedly, declaring "This party just became a major rager."
