Thanks a lot for this lead to Intergalactic Ape-Man.

Almost everbody knows The Big Bang Theory, I guess. Especially amongst internet users. Now you do also know then that digestion is strongly in focus on the show. Main character Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) for example is obsessed with control over his bladder and his bowel movement. As funny the punchlines are, rarely though do we catch a glimpse of the locus delicti.

What Ape-Man pointed out was that we actually get to see the shared bathroom of Sheldon and his roommate Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) in the pilot. I’m really unsure if we ever gain a more detailed insight into that sacred place at all. So if you have any idea where to pick up more toilet and bathroom shots from The Big Bang Theory, drop me a line. I know at least Penny (Kaley Cuoco) has an accident in her own shower later. (And I realize that her surname still wasn’t revealed altough we even know her father.)

But back to what you are after on Mediatoilets. The toilet! It is not in use during the scene but the mentioned fact that the intimate act is never portrait on The Big Bang Theory should be impulse enough to celebrate what we get our dirty hands on. This scene starts when new neighbor Penny asks Leonard if she could shower at their place. Because the bath mixer is a little wayward Leonard has to assist Penny who in return chafes everybody sporting a towel only.

When done Penny enters the shower and now have a second look at the magnificent shower curtain unfolding! I really hated chemistry classes in school but even I recognize and appreciate the periodic table of the elements. What marvelous fine-tuning of stage design on The Big Bang Theory!

Now Leonard leaves the bathroom. As you can spot the bathroom sink above and below on the right side this wide angle shot finally reveals the toilet on the left. Also enjoy the shower curtain in its full gorgeousness!

Never judge a toilet by its cover?! There’s an interesting detail in this picture. Did you see that? As neurotically fussy our two nerds can become the toilet lid is open! Now is this improper design or are Leonard and Sheldon really that nonchalant about this issue?

Perhaps we will learn about this in the future. I’ll be watching because The Big Bang Theory is still one of my favourite shows.
