PaleyFest 2013

Can you spot us here?

Not only is The Big Bang Theory one of our favorite TV shows, it’s also the #1 sitcom on television. It’s so popular, in fact, that the event celebrating Big Bang at this year’s Paley festival sold-out immediately. Luckily, we got our tickets as soon as they went on sale. We attended the event last Wednesday night.

As I’ve explained many times before on this blog, PaleyFest is an annual film festival that brings together the creative teams of some of the most popular TV shows on the air today. We’ve been going probably 27 of the 28 years we've known each other. This year we attended events honoring Parenthood, The Newsroom, New Girl, and Big Bang. An entire episode or select scenes of the show are screened at each event, followed by an hour-long moderated Q&A with the show's cast and creators. Toward the end of the hour, audience members are invited to ask questions as well.

For the first time this year, Hulu live-streamed the Q&A sessions, which are now available online for free. We could see the Hulu stream as it was being taped. Can you find us in the clip below? Hint: we're sitting in front of the guy standing and asking the question. Halfway through the clip, Tim nudges me and, out of the corner of his mouth, says, “We’re on screen!”—which to him, of course, was far more important than the guy’s question!

You can watch the entire Q&A here. Enjoy!
