Alas, filmmaker Chris Columbus does not appear to tweet (I checked), so we must for now remain bereft of his feelings concerning Leonard, Sheldon, Wolowitz, and Raj’s tradition of celebrating “Columbus” Day by watching the Columbus-penned generational touchstones Goonies, Gremlins, and Young Sherlock Holmes — probably the nicest Columbus Day joke ever made about the Home Alone director, in fact. (And yes, Young Sherlock Holmes is indeed a touchstone, if only because it is the first major motion picture to feature a character fashioned entirely via computer.) (Whoa, got a bit Sheldon up in here. Apologies.)
The holiday merriment was short-lived, unfortunately, after Raj broke down at the mere mention of the Wolowitz family’s traditional Thanksgiving turbriskefil, and it wasn’t because that’s a turkey stuffed with a brisket stuffed with gefilte fish. OK, it wasn’t just because of that unholy culinary trinity; he’s also in danger of being deported back to India.
