Season Premiere

The Big Bang Theory is a comedy series about four young scientists who know all about the world of physics, and one girl, who gives the physics world a real spin. Leonard Hofstadter is a smart guy who tries his best to complete his research and become famous for his work while also attempting to be the most socially-interacting guy in their friend group. Sheldon Cooper is one o more
...f the world’s smartest men with an intellectual capacity through the roof and a language with scientific words normal people only have one comment to (“What?”). Though it’s never been said by himself, all signs throughout the show point to him having the Asperger Syndrome, making him the smartest, but also least social, group member. Howard Wolowitz is an engineer with his mind partially on science, but mostly on women. He always tries his best to impress a girl and get his share of sexual intercourses, but he always manages to screw up somehow, probably with his bad knowledge of treating women in a bad matter. Rajesh Koothrappali is an Indian scientist performing experiments on black holes, outer space, life on other planets and not to mention string theory. Raj is mostly known for his Selective Mutism, in other words, his fear of speaking to women, making social interaction difficult for him. Finally, there’s Penny. Penny is the gorgeous girl next-door to Leonard and Sheldon’s apartment, and though she does not have any knowledge in physics or science, she makes success by being a funny character frequently having hilarious comments and on- and off-going relationships. All together, this unit of comedians make the show’s half-hour episodes pure enjoyment and whether you like physics, women or neither, this show is surely going to get you laughing!

Let Him Go

It really happened! Penny and Leonard are engaged and ...  Raj and Emily had sex. Both were notable events for this group of friends and worthy of celebratory cheers and hugs on The Big Bang Theory Season 7 Episode 24. Sheldon didn't handle the news well once he realized that Leonard wasn't going to continue to live with him. He doesn't handle change well unless it's of his own making. He was desperate to change fields of study, but the university refused because his... more

Stupid Pop-Tart!

"The Gorilla Dissolution" was moving along like most episodes of The Big Bang Theory with characters dealing with their personal problems. Penny had work trouble, Raj struggled with dating, and Howard was dealing with his mother. The Big Bang Theory Season 7 Episode 23 wasn't anything particularly special, but not a bad episode either. Then ... all of a sudden a conversation about Penny's career troubles turned into something amazing. It happened. It really... more

Star Wars Apparition

After someone dies, it's usually followed by a period of mourning and a somber mood, but not on The Big Bang Theory. Especially not when the funeral lands on Star Wars Day! This was one of the best episodes of the season. The Big Bang Theory Season 7 Episode 22 defied that convention when the best laughs came after Sheldon found out that Arthur Jeffries, one of his idols, died. RIP Professor Proton. Arthur may be gone, but whether he'd like it or not, he'll l... more

Hit Watch 2014: Which New Fall Shows Will Succeed?

With 24 new network shows airing in Fall 2014, from dramas to comedies to a reality show, viewers will have plenty to choose from. But which ones are worth your time? Yesterday I made my picks for what shows will be the first to get cancelled , but now it's time to look at the ones I think will succeed. In 2012, I correctly picked four out of five that got renewed for second seasons. Last year I only got three right, incorrectly believing that the CW's ... more

    Amy and Bernadette have stolen the show, I really want to see Sheldon and Amy marry first before Penny and Leonard or Amy move in with Penny and Raj to eventually get over his fear talking to girls except his Mother and Sister.
