  1. Stewart really cracks me up. I am glad to hear that some others here are also giving him appreciation and acceptance to the gang. Anyone who says that he is a weak link on the show, well... sorry for all. You gotta love his new girlfriend. Isn't Lucille beautiful?
  2. Well, contrary to everyone's thoughts that this could have been a better 200th episode, I would agree on some notes, such as the focus being too much on Sheldon. In my case it's a bit different. I feel like the left out Stewart here, and that's because I totally forgot that it was the 200th episode when I watched it. Therefore, even though it was all about Sheldon, it felt to me like a special episode. I was thrilled to find out that Adam West was making an appearance on the show. I liked the first scene in the car, but I was a bit disappointed in his role at the party. First of all I expected to see him dressed up as Batman. I am sure that Sheldon would have appreciated that too. It would have been cool if Sheldon hadn't first noticed that it was West in the outfit, then when he would find out it was him would have been an appropriate time to go into his near fainting spell. His lines at the party were ehhh.. It sounded like he was just advertising himself for his guest appearances, although I loved when he said "I still get paid don't i?". Stewart had foreshadowed his persistence about that at his comic store. Speaking of Stewart, I though his segments on the show were right on character, especially when Amy interrupted him and Penny said you nailed it. So people were wondering why Amy didn't get much of the attention with Sheldon in this episode. Well, I'm going to have to go out on a limb and say the focus on the characters were quite orderly last night in terms of who the most popular actors on the show. That would be Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco who all received their deserved time in the episode. No disrespect to Amy, she is a great addition to the show, but when it comes down to pure acting, she is not quite up to par with the former 3 that I mentioned. As a matter of fact I can hardly pronounce Miriam Beliack
  3. I am just so happy that I haven't been watching much TV since the previous episode. I had no clue what was about to unfold last night. I just watched the episode about an hour ago. It was GREAT!
  4. I had forgotten all about that scene of Finding out that Sheldon had sex, although the girl did admit that they were both in costume when it happened. I think the original pilot was awesome! I like the dark edgy feel that it had.I know I know that Katie actress who was the original Penny was a bit too trashy, but it was pretty realistic.
  5. Hello everyone, It's been awhile since I have posted. I see the same good ole feuding going on here. Well, let me see if I can help clear things up here. Well, to the OP, the new member, well not new anymore, Chas I believe is the name? Hi Chas, nice to meet you. Welcome to the forum. So, you say that a person's hair style results in the change of their character and/or how funny they are. Hmmm, I will have to agree. It change it. I couldn't picture Curly Joe or Larry from the 3 Stooges with normal looking haircuts, or even old comedian Marty Allen without his wild mad scientist hairdo. In Penny's case, I'd say it took me by surprise when I first saw it. Yes it did make her look smarter, as some posters mentioned she has matured on the show throughout the years,aside from the fact that the hairdo fits in well with her pharmacy job, but I didn't see her any less funny, other than what she is scripted by the writers. If you don't care for short hair then I can not object to your opinion. I prefer longer hair myself also, but I think Kaley looks pretty cool with her latest hairstyle and it is has grown on me. Now another question is: Are female comedians with short blonde hair not funny? Well, Carol Burnett, fitting that description, was VERY successful. Also Joan Rivers was too, although I never really cared much for her, but may God rest her soul, or Gort rest her soul, or whatever one wants to believe. One thing I am curious about; Is Penny supposedly planning to cheat on Leonard in the near future? I ask that because I didn't understand your statement about her dating dumb guys again. I read most of the posts in this thread but I sort of skipped through a few on page 3, so my apologies if I missed out on something.
  6. I haven't posted on here for quite a few episodes now, although I have occasionally been here to read some of the episode reviews. Most of the previous episodes I have been rating no more or less than good, which is rare for me as I have been such a huge fan of this show from the begining. Tonight's episode I would have to say was something special. First of all after watching the end of last week's episode which was pretty good also, especially at the end, I was anticipating to see the details about Sheldon's trip to Texas with Howie. The scene with him and is mom was awesome! It was great to see her make an appearance again on the set. Raj's murder game was brought to life once Stewart awoke from the dead. Stew's lines to Penny and Leonard were absolutely brilliant and classy as F**K!
  7. I'm sure it did exist or even something similar to it, but Stewart probably still had a dumb phone because he was still so poor.
  8. I would say that this season has been pretty consistent so far. There were some episodes in which I had some really good laughs but over all, after watching an episode of The Big Bang Theory I usually watch my other favorite highly rated comedy show on Thursday Night immediately after The BBT and have been getting more laughs out of it. BTW, what's with the long wait between episodes this month? I hope the writers aren't running out of material.
  9. I didn't think the lesbian joke was really that bad of a statement. The timing of it was good and the way I saw it was that Bert was so determined to go out with Amy that Raj and Howard figured there was no alternative to go with, except for telling him that she was a lesbian just so his feelings wouldn't have been hurt as much.
  10. I really like that thought that this may be a setup show. It leaves us with a positive insight of the possibilities that may arise in the future. What if Leonard and Sheldon do split as roommates? Who do you think would be a great choice of a new roommate for Sheldon. Here is a little list of the possibilities I thought of. Kripke, Wheaton, Zak or Stewart?
  11. I still love The Big Bang Theory and rated this episode no less than a good, but I'll have to say that 2 of my other favorite shows, one a comedy series also done by Chuck Lorry and the other a very popular AMC channel dark action thriller favorite of mine dominated the TV screen for me this past week, BIGTIME!
  12. Isn't it supposed to be that way with Amy? Kind of like Ed Norton on The Honeymooners. He wouldn't be Norton without the vest and suspenders.
  13. Where I live I got pelted with rain all day. The rain had finally subsided just as I got pelted again, but this time with some great comedy on the BBT. Sheldon nailed it tonight! At first I thought it was kind of dumb of him saying that he would rather be happy having a lousy Thanksgiving with Leonard at home cooking, but I see that was just a precursor for what was to come. This episode was a complete turnaround from last week's. We had Zack back, We had Mrs Wolowitz, THEN, Sheldon and Mr Bernie's dad talking football, bonding and getting drunk together. HILARIOUS! Poor Howard though, he just can't connect with his father in law. Anyways, I'll check back here in the next day or so to read some of the worst episode ever comments, but hopefully not. Other than that I wish you all a Happy and safe Thanksgiving.
  14. It's a historical scenario in TV comedies about certain characters and their development in many classic sitcoms. Some are just made to stay the way they are. "Lucy" from I Love Lucy, "Gilligan" of Gilligan's Island. "Ed Norton" of The Honeymooners and "Jethro" from The Beverly Hillbillies just to name a few. Now in the case of Sheldon, you all make the call. How about a vote? Does he stay as the Sheldon he has always been or do we want a change? My vote is up in the air on this, mainly for the fact that he is very inconsiderate to his friends most of the time. But what can I say, that is sometimes what makes this a great comedy.
  15. I believe I commented on this episode last week but I am sure that I forgot to hit send after I was interrupted by a phone call. Anyways I agree with the majority here, and excellent episode this was. Although I may be old enough to have watched the Bob Newhart Show when it aired live, I never remember doing so. Therefore I can't say I was ever a fan of his nor would I say I'm not. What I could say though is that his 2 appearances on the Big Bang Theory so far have been PRICELESS. As Adorkably me said in the previous reply, it would have been nice to have seen more of Bill Nye.But what can I say? Bill Nye is a scientist and Newhart is an actor. Now Stephen Hawking may also be a scientist but he has a great sense of humor and I would have loved to have seen more of him last year. Bob could just speak one or 2 simple lines, put an expression on his face and he would have me laughing hysterically. Why? Why? Why??? LOL.
