|Mayim Bialik, the actress who played Blossom and currently plays Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory|
Mom - As a teen, Mayim Bialik played Blossom Russo on Blossom. As an adult, she plays Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory. The characters are similar in that they are both very smart. Yet, they are also very different. Blossom is much hipper than Amy. She is smart but she is not a nerd. She dresses well and is popular and attractive. Amy dresses like an old woman at least twice her age. She only has a boyfriend because her boyfriend Sheldon's two friends set her up with him because she and Sheldon matched up so well on paper. They were totally perfect for each other even though for the longest time he didn't even want to admit they were boyfriend and girlfriend. Blossom Russo didn't have nearly as much trouble getting a boyfriend or a date. Blossom grew up with her best friend Six and she had other friends as well. Amy didn't really have friends until she was a grown-up. Blossom was an ultra smart fairly confident character and a good role model for girls. Amy Farrah Fowler is an extremely smart sometimes confident character and in some ways a good role model for girls in other ways not so much. Both characters are fun to watch especially Amy who is one of the most hilarious characters ever on television.
And that's our view. Who do you think are some of the funniest characters ever on TV?
Tune in tomorrow for Funtivity Friday.
