Do you watch 'The Big Bang Theory'? What do you think? (How will they handle 'The Hawking Problem'?)
The characters are all highly intelligent, highly accomplished scientists.
Moreover, they discuss a very wide range of topics, well beyond physics, e.g. biology, history.
The question that fascinates me is: how long can they keep making episodes without ever having the characters chat politics or climate change? Their continued avoidance of those subjects looks increasingly incongruous, given how wide-ranging their conversations are.
Also, here's a real humdinger ...
Stephen Hawking is a favourite recurring character/topic for them. Indeed, he was the main theme of finale episode (May 2013) of the latest season (season 6).
But now, Hawking is equally?/more? famous for his political output as his physics output.
CBS is a New York-based corporation, i.e. at the heart of Jewish-lobby America. Has Hawking breached the bounds of acceptable speech such that he will disappear from the sitcom's universe of discourse?
