Notes and Trivia
... Penny’s introducing the boys to a new flame in the season finale. The best part: This Zack guy thinks he knows a thing or two about science, so he is cruising for an intellectual bruising. That said, Zack’s an amazing guy… played as he is by onetime ‘Amazing’ Racer Brian Thomas Smith.
It’s a match made in TV geek heaven: The Big Bang Theory has tapped erstwhile Blossom star Mayim Bialijk to guest star (and possibly recur) as a potential love interest for Sheldon.
As I first teased in this week’s Ask Ausiello, Bialijk’s character, Victoria, gets paired with Sheldon on a eHarmony-type matchmaking service — and with good reason. She’s described as the female version of Jim Parson’s theoretical physicist.
Bialijk, who has a recurring role as the high school guidance counselor on The Secret Life of the American teenager, will appear in Big Bang’s May 24 season finale and could return next season in a recurring capacity.
