The Dawson Effect
Dec 18, 2012
Dawson Creek recently made a ‘Big Bang’ in the headlines; when local crafter Jackie Laing sent a crocheted doll of his charachter Sheldon Cooper from the CBS hit series “The Big Bang Theory.”
The Big Bang Theory is a sitcom about four nerdy scientists, including Sheldon Cooper, a physicist. The television show is one of CBS’s top-rated shows, with an average of 14-17 million viewers per week.
The local doll has since made a Hollywood debut on Conan O’Brien’s talk show, where Parsons made made mention of the creator, referring to her as “Jackie” who lives in Canada.
Overnight Jackie and Dawson Creek have gained worldwide notice; this sort of limelight is sure to bring further recognition for Peace Region artisans in the New Year.
