** Mayim was cast to play a female version of Sheldon. She is a competent
actress and was given only a couple weeks to invent all her character's
mannerisms - having apparently never watched the show on TV previously.
Jim Parsons character (Sheldon) is a salve to rules, routines and familiar
things not because of OCD - those are all common traits of Aspergers
Syndrome or ASD.
When I first watched the program, I could hardly believe that all the main
characters were cast as ASD sufferers with the clear exception of Penny.
