Quote:Big Bang Theory had the girls do a great hilarious deconstruction of "Raiders of the Lost Ark" ruining the movie for the guys: Indy doesn't really accomplish anything positive other than killing some bad guys. It is his fault the Germans get their hands on the Ark because they were digging in the wrong place. If he gave up or failed then, it might have been taken to Berlin and opened there, killing Hitler and ending WWII several years earlier. Instead, it gets opened in the desert. And, it doesn't end up in a museum but a warehouse.
That was a brilliant episode! I don't know if that has been a commonly held "theory" for years or if the writers of BB came up with it on their own; if the latter they really are to be applauded.
