Knock Knock Knock, Penny! (x3)

Have you ever seen The Big Bang Theory? If you have then you know of its greatness. If you haven't then, stop reading this post and go watch every single episode you can find!! Justin and I got to go to a taping of it last night. It was an absolute blast. 
When we first pulled into the parking garage to wait for them to take us to the studio where the filming was going to take place, there was a TON of people. I had a mini stroke. I was so afraid that we weren't going to get in because all these people beat us to it. When the lady came up to check our tickets and ID's she said "You two are in the guaranteed line!" aaah! I could have kissed her face I was so happy! I had completely forgot that The Big Bang Theory always has a standby line just in case someone with a guaranteed ticket doesn't showed up. So I was soooo happy that we for sure would be getting to see the taping tonight! 
We walked what seemed like forever to the 25th building, which is where they film the show. {They also filmed What I Like About You in there too!} While waiting in line to go through yet another metal detector Justin noticed a little ways into the distance was a huge shadow box with some various memorable props from the show: the multi level chess board and the creepy kissing machine Wolowitz made. 
After that we got seated pretty dang close to center stage. We were in the back row but it's stadium seating so we could still see. While we were waiting for the crew to get ready to shoot the first scene they played us a never-before-aired episode! That was a nice little treat! 
After what seemed like kind of a long time they finally started filming! Justin and I made sure to laugh loudly and joyfully so hopefully you can all verify we were there ;) It was so much fun when the actors messed up their lines! haha it only happened a couple times but it was great and so dang funny! Johnny Galecki (the guy who plays Leonard) couldn't say this one line and kept on messing it up! He had to read the script a couple of times to get it. 
Guess what else! You know how you never see Wolowitz's mom? Well we got to see her! Contrary to popular belief at my house, Bernadette isn't the one who does it. It's a lady whose name is Carol Ann Susi {said so on the program!} She would just stay in the fake little hallway and shout out her lines to Howard.  
Wanna hear something tender? Kaley Cuoco {the girl who plays Penny} came out in between shooting scenes and pointed out that this episode they were filming was the 99th one! She also pointed out her Dad who sits in the back of the audience and has been to every single episode taping! How cutie is that? I thought that was super tender. 
After watching all the fun scenes and eating pizza and being entertained in between takes by the MC, Mark it was all over! I am so happy we went! We had so much fun at the taping of Two and a Half Men last year that we had to go to another one. I certainly recommend it to anyone who comes to El Lay. 

I forgot to have us a take a picture of ourselves before we went in so we did it when we got back to the car. My face was all red because it was kind of chilly out and we walked like a mile from the studio to the car. 

Here's the program {sorry it's sideways I tried to fix it but I guess I'm just not very good :)} 

oh and a little p.s.- on our way back to the parking garage the guy who was escorting us pointed out Ashton Kutcher's huuuge trailer and he said that a couple weeks ago he saw Ashton and Demi fighting! haha cool huh? I thought it was. I feel so in the know now :) Move over Perez Hilton! Alex is the new celebrity gossip blogger!
