The Big Bang Theory and Wil Wheaton

The much-maligned Wil Wheaton will be making a guest appearance on the ultimate show for geeks, "The Big Bang Theory." Okay. I think Wil Wheaton is a good actor, and I *liked* his character Wesley Crusher on "Star Trek: The Next Generation." As a proper geek, I even have an original Wesley Crusher action figure. Actually, I have two: one in a mint-condition package and one that I opened and which I've kept in my car since 1993. It's the only tchotchke I keep in my car other then my plush VW Beetle Daisy. It serves as a talisman to keep my warp drive, I mean my engine, running smoothly.

I just read an article about Mr. Wheaton's appearance on TBBT tonight. It mentioned that he has over 1.5 million followers on Twitter. Of course, I *had* to immediately go to my twitter account @literarylattes and follow him @wilw. I also see that he has a blog: WWdN:In Exile
It looks interesting.

If you haven't checked out TBBT yet, you are missing a treat. Even non-Geeks that I know like the show. It's one of the few comedies on network television that is worth giving up 30-minutes of your time.
