    Or who is in it?

    He always have to give this long explanation about the plot until someone chimes in
    and tells him the name.

    Is he having memory loss? Or is it just another example of his laziness?

    It's just his roundabout way of trying to look cool, as though getting involved in a movie or a tv show to the extent that you actually remember what it was called would make him seem like a nerd or something

    Toss him a marble or two and he'll remember the name.

    He knows what he's watching and who is in the movie....and he's aware of who is big in entertainment/radio...everything...he just pretends he's above it all...keep in mind, he has said many times that quality time with Beth is drinking wine and looking through the tabloids, where they show pictures of D-list celebrities (like his wife).

    You should have stopped at "How come Howard never knows". It really doesn't make any difference what the context is.

    because he doesn't understand that the things that made him look hip and aloof in the past now just look like the beginning stages of dementia

    I used to think that too, but the longer I listen to Howard ( and I've been listening for years) the more I realize that it's not an act. Howard really is an idiot. His father recognized it early. He knew Howard was a stupid moron. Remember the story Howard used to tell about when he was a kid in grade school? He'd come home and his mother would ask him,"What are you reading in school?" and Howard said, "Itsy Bitsy". His mother got all bent out of shape and went to the school to complain, saying he should be reading at a higher level. Well maybe the school got it right. They probably had Howard in a "special" class.

    I don't know if he's just stupid or he has Alzheimer's but there are so many things Wiggy doesn't get no matter how many times people explain them to him. He doesn't understand why groups of people chip in and buy lottery tickets because they only cost $1 (even though it was explained to him that they buy multiple tickets to increase their odds) and he thinks the contestants on The Bachelor are hurting their careers by taking time off to appear on the show (even though he was told they actually want a career in show business and that's why they're really there). There's a reason he never participates in the IQ tests.

    Because he's a passive-aggressive jerk. And a narcissist. And an asshole.

    He thinks the Steam Punks and Broneys are at the same convention. Fucking idiot, they correct him all the time and he can't say steam punks without broneys.

    Reminds me of "niggas love not to know"
