    • Sheldon presents the (African-American) HR Director a box set of Roots on DVD, and doesn't understand why it is offensive. Roots was a television miniseries in the 1970's that was based on a novel by Alex Haley, which depicted the history of an African-American family, beginning with the story of Kunta Kinte, a slave in the South.

      Damn, I know that there are only a few episodes left in this season but do they have to air them fo far apart?

    • Earnie1 Apr 05, 2013

      yes they are only 4 episodes left CBS only ordered 24 for season 6 and CBS has already said the season final will air May 16 CBS wants episodes to air during May sweeps and I don't think any network orders more than 24 episodes for a full season pickup

    • antdude Apr 05, 2013

      So, CBS could had saved last night's episode for later!

    • antdude Apr 05, 2013
