1210 'The VCR Illumination' (December 6)

Recommended Posts

The VCR Illumination 
Airs Thursday, December 6 at 8/7c on CBS

Sheldon and Amy are still down about their theory being disproven, but a VHS tape from Sheldon's past inspires him not to give up. Also, Bernadette turns into a pageant mom when she tries to help Wolowitz ace his Magic Castle audition.

Young Sheldon stars Iain Armitage, Lance Barber and Montana Jordan guest star. Christine Baranski returns as Beverly Hofstadter.

Looks like this is not all YS which was what a lot of people feared. I can't wait to see it. I can SO see Bernie acting like a pageant mom.

I'm more in fear of another boring and dumb episode.

Yeah! That seems pretty much fitting her real character. ūüėĀ

Leonard and Penny seems to be sleeping in their bedroom  in this episode, off-screen of course.

Of course. The writers won't risk spoiling the illusion that they don't sleep together any more!

I think the illusion is that they sleep together on the kitchen island, and sometimes winging it sleeping on the couch.

Where does Penny get green paint on Leonard's Star Trek uniform ? The bath ?

Beats me! Maybe she had paint on her hands and tried to ruin the uniform, so he'd have to throw it away! It's all open to anyone's opinion. That's due to it never been seen like the boat kiss!

What this show really needs is more of Sheldon acting like a petulant toddler while everyone appeases him. Never too much of that.

I'm not sure if that is sarcastic or not, but I'm way over that crap. TPTB have run that into the ground. That's MHO!

I said they were running out of gas two years ago and didn't want the series extension. But the powers that be said that there were lots more stories to tell. I didn't see these writers being able to keep the show quality. I still wish they had ended on a high note.

They can still end on a high note, if they push themselves to writing quality scripts with the shows casts. They don't need casts from other shows. If they want to bring back original guests of the show is fine with me.

If you are referring to the YS stuff, that's not all that you have disliked about episodes over the last couple of years, right? The quality hasn't been there for a LONG time. I can't see that doing a u-turn now. I still think season six was the best season. It had a lot of episodes where everyone had a chance to shine.

Anyone reading my posts know I've been not pleased with either the writers or Holland. The waste of the whole season 11 on the planning of "Shamy's" wedding was ridiculous in my opinion. None of the other couple got that and it "burns my grits". Bringing in that other shows cast is just the tip of the iceberg of my disappointment with TPTB. So there's a lot that has upset me the last few years!

She had paint over her entire body.

The whole season wasn't dedicated to planning the wedding.

Did she? I never saw it like I didn't see the boat kiss. All we have is the script. So believe what you want and I'll believe what I want. As usual we will disagree!

It's pretty obvious that Penny was dressed as a Green Orion Slave Girl, which would necessitate covering her entire body in green paint, much as Bernadette had to be completely covered in blue paint, to dress as a Smurf.

I'm sorry, damn near every episode had wedding planning or discussions in it.

What To Expect From The Big Bang Theory/Young Sheldon Crossover

screenrant.com

"Since The Big Bang Theory will be wrapping up its 12-season run next year, it's safe to say that this is going to be the closest thing fans will ever get to see the two shows collaborate."

What we get this episode is, IMHO, way to damn much for my taste.
