The Big Bang Theory has a history of bringing on talented guest stars. For the longest time Laurie Metcalf was my favorite. Laurie has been terrific in the role of Sheldon Cooper's mother, Mary.
However, Bob Newhart continues to grow on me in his role as Arthur a.k.a. Professor Proton. So much so that I'd have to confess he's my favorite guest star on the show right now.
Professor Proton still has a strong influence on the lives of Sheldon Cooper (Jim ... Read More

It amazes me sometimes how long The Big Bang Theory is keeping up this thing about Raj (Kunal Nayyar) not being able to talk to women without the aid of alcohol. I thought they would give up after a season or two, but I was clearly wrong. It looks like they're in it for the long haul and I love the commitment.
Raj's inability to speak to women came up again tonight when it came time to meet a woman Penny ... Read More

After what I felt were slightly off episodes to start the season, The Big Bang Theory came back with an excellent episode tonight. Bill Prady, Steven Molaro and Dave Goetsch did a very nice job with the episode's teleplay.
The pairing of Amy (Mayim Bialik) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) felt like a little bit of a strange idea initially because the characters often give off a very different energy. Mayim did a very nice job at the wedding party. Her ... Read More

Two episodes of The Big Bang Theory in one night?! How lucky can one guy get?!
The unknown origin or a red chair drove Sheldon (Jim Parsons) out of his mind in this episode. We’ve all known Sheldon has had an obsessive compulsive behavior, so it wasn’t much of a surprise to see him go a little crazy when he learned Penny’s (Kaley Cuoco) “new” red chair was actually in the garbage. Someone didn’t want it and it wasn’t apparent why ... Read More

Sheldon (Jim Parsons) continues to amuse the heck out of me. It amazes me how he isn’t able to pick up on some of the most obvious lies. His over analysis of seeing Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and Raj’s (Kunal Nayyar) night together was hilarious. If I were eating lunch with him like Leonard (Johnny Galecki) was, I would have lost my appetite as well when Sheldon went on with his ridiculous theories about what Penny and Raj may have ...

This episode had me laughing more than most Big Bang episodes, which is no small feat. It all starts with Leonard, Raj, and Wolowitz who are camped out in the desert awaiting a meteor shower. They note that it’s a shame Sheldon couldn’t come with them before unanimously breaking out in a mocking laugh. In a similar scenario back at Sheldon and Leonard’s apartment, Sheldon notes that his research is going well but he misses his friends, then laughs at his own ... Read More

So this is the argument episode. Penny and Leonard’s relationship was going too smoothly for TV land so they threw in a fight. The fun all starts when Penny, Leonard, and Sheldon are sitting around playing Sheldon’s homemade board game, Research Lab. Its slogan is “the physics is theoretical but the fun is real.” Naturally Penny and Leonard are bored out of their minds and looking for a way out of having to play it again. Leonard looks to Penny for an ... Read More

I think one of the best things about this show is that it usually keeps me laughing, regardless of what is going on. I also appreciate how it stays smart without riding up its own ass. “The Cornhusker Vortex” does all this while dealing with important topics such as relationships, kite fighting, football, and Cylon toast. It’s basically and Penny and Leonard episode at the center but it also deals with the odd couple like relationship that Wolowitz and Raj have built ... Read More

I keep trying to think of ways for The Big Bang Theory to get more geek-tastic and I don’t think there’s a way. In one episode we have a fantasy card playing game, talk of Green Lantern action figures, and a former Star Trek star appearing as himself. Though still employing standard sitcom elements, it’s the nerd-factor that makes the show so engaging and adds a little individuality.
So, “The Creepy Candy Coating Corollary” is pretty much split into two separate storylines. The ... Read More

Another episode of The Big Bang Theory has come and gone and once again it has left me laughing my butt off. The episode was in large part a Koothrappali episode and those always tend to be funny. Every season Raj gets a couple episodes that put him in the lime light and pull him away from his usual role as Wolowitz’s partner in crime. The shift in focus from Penny and Leonard to one of the other characters really helps the ... Read More
