Finally! A TV show that we've actually seen (sorry, Gossip Girl
). The Big Bang Theory's
most recent episode featured Raj finding love with Siri
. The uptight astrophysicist is incapable of speaking to women unless he's been on the sauce, but finds no such social inhibition with his iPhone's virtual assistant. Of course, like any geek receiving attention from the opposite gender, Dr Koothrappali soon becomes unhealthily infatuated with the handset, leading him on a trip to Cupertino
to meet the person behind the microphone symbol. We won't spoil what happens, but you can probably work it out -- there's video past the break.
