How Not to Dress Up Like “The Big Bang Theory” Boys This Fall

The gang of geeks paired with the hottie Penny has been a recipe for sweet success on television. “The Big Bang Theory” will move into its 7th season pretty soon, and there has been a great reaction to the spoilers released so far.

Sheldon’s unique sense of humor, Leonard’s social awkwardness and just the sheer hilarity of the situations Howard and Raj get themselves in are great to watch.

The boys may have a great sense of humor, but not many would like to emulate them when it comes to style.
If you’ve been prepping up the wardrobe to prepare for the upcoming season, then this post will guide you on how NOT to dress up like the Big Bang Theory boss.

Sheldon

Sheldon’s style is all about layered clothes. He starts off with an undershirt with a round neck and full sleeves. He usually prefers statement tees over a standard under shirt.

The tees have the typical Bazinga! exclamation sign over them, Star Wars inscriptions, rock, paper, scissors or something scientific printed over them (it’s becoming too mainstream).

If you want to avoid dressing up like Sheldon, then go for simple tees with no scientific garb printed over them. A snazzy gingham shirt is also a great option as it can come in handy on multiple occasions. You can wear such shirts to a wedding, homecoming, business dinner etc. and look as dapper as possible–without coming across like an even more sociopathic version of Niles from the show “Frasier.”

Howard

Howard’s style is from the 70s. His poofed up hair tucked behind one hair, and shirt tucked into the pants (a bit too small) is reminiscent of a fabulous era that is long gone.

Howard wears checkered shirts in bright colors. He also buttons up the shirts and doesn’t roll up the sleeves.

So if you want to avoid looking like Howard then wear formal shirts, with no checkered prints. Try to make your look casual, and roll the sleeves as far as they can go. The next thing Howard is known for are bright pants and a shiny new belt. Avoid shimmering belts and wear simple black colored pants.

Leonard

Leonard typically sports army jackets, dull printed t-shirts underneath and a baggy pair of jeans. Also, he mostly wears oversized clothes. Thick rimmed glasses are another classic Leonard trademark.

Avoid emulating his style as oversized clothing can make you look like a fashion disaster. As for the glasses, they aren’t necessary, but you can go with lens of a rimless frame. Brightness is the key to your wardrobe when it comes to avoiding Leonard like looks.

Raj

Unlike the traditional Indian, young Raj likes to show off with tacky and nerdy outfits. His sense of style is largely made up of sleeveless plaid sweaters and a simple full sleeved shirt underneath. In some cases, he also wears front open sweaters, with plain shirts underneath.
To avoid Raj’s old-age style, you can consider high neck and polo neck sweaters. Make sure that the sweaters are in solid colors like gray, brown, black and blue.

The style ideas will help you avoid looking like the fashion outdated Big Bang Theory doppelgangers and let you do something different this season.

Decade Debate: 15 Sci-Fi series that deserved a longer run

Together with the editors of Premium Hollywood and The Scores Report, Bullz-Eye.com is looking back at the past decade (what the hell should we call it?) and compiling lists of some of the best and worst of the 00′s in television, movies and sports. These decade debates are fun, so feel free to leave comments with your perspectives as well as we’ll be featuring them here in the Bullz-Eye Blog.

Starting with television in the 2000s, Will Harris posted a great list on Premium Hollywood of the 15 sci-fi series that deserved a longer run. One series that stood out was “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.” Here’s our take:

Season 1 had its highs and lows, but the show’s sophomore year was consistently intriguing throughout, starting with the season premiere and the introduction of Catherine Weaver (Shirley Manson), the co-founder and current CEO of ZeiraCorp…except that, as we discovered immediately prior to the closing credits, she wasn’t actually Catherine Weaver but, indeed, was a shapeshifting T-1001. As the season progressed, however, her physical transformation became less interesting than her emotional evolution, with the T-1001 being forced to maintain the façade of its new identity in its entirety, which required her to raise Catherine’s daughter, Savannah (Mackenzie Smith), and try to understand her. (I have a suspicion that all of the parents in our readership just snorted en masse and said, “Uh, yeah, good luck with that!”)

The T-1001 wasn’t the only Terminator to get a crash course in humanity during Season 2. Cameron (Summer Glau) spent much of the season suffering from a serious chip malfunction, leading her at one point to adopt the approximate memories of future resistance fighter Allison Young, on whom her personality had originally been patterned, but we also saw her interacting outside of the Connor camp; elsewhere, the Terminator formerly known as Cromartie (Garret Dillahunt) had his chip destroyed, but his body was connected to ZeiraCorp’s artificial intelligence known as the Babylon A.I., leading him to take on a new name – John Henry – and leading the series to explore matters of spirituality by querying whether his sentience means that terms like “life” and “death” now apply to him. Oh, right, and there was also some pretty good stuff with the human characters, too.

Sure, there were moments which defied credibility, but when you’re dealing with a show that lives and dies by time travel, suspension of disbelief and acceptance of pretty much everything that’s handed to you is a necessity. Fortunately, executive producer Josh Friedman found a way to combine the necessary technological components of “Terminator” with deep characterization. It seriously sucked that “The Sarah Connor Chronicles” was canceled just as those who’d followed it from the beginning were really feeling rewarded for their steadfast viewership, but it was just insult to injury when “Terminator: Salvation” bombed, taking down any decent chance that the series might be revisited at some point.

We have to admit that Lena Headey and Summer Glau added an eye candy factor that made the shows even more enjoyable. Both of their characters found their way onto our TV Girlfriends feature, with Lena’ Headey’s Sara Conner featured in our Married to the Job category and Summer Glau’s Cameron battling in our Fox Force Five list.
