So I was rewatching one of my favorite episodes of Big Bang Theory this season when I realized its the perfect writer’s example of make things worse for your character, then make it ever more worse and then throw in a lot more worse for them. 🙂 Gotta love when something like that clicks in your head.
If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, its when Sheldon decides to get revenge on his co-worker by putting something above the ceiling tiles that will drop down on him when least expected. It should go perfectly to plan. But things go bad when the co-worker walks into his lab with the head honchos where they work. Bad enough right? But things go extremely bad when the stuff falls, and the video plays where Sheldon identifies himself as behind the whole thing, with thanks to his two friends, while Sheldon & co watch helplessly on webcam. Too funny and a really great example. Funny sometimes how things click better when you see them, then when you try to figure it out yourself.
