Last night Big Bang Theory came back with its 10th season.
10×01 – The Conjugal Conjecture
As Leonard and Penny attempt to hold another wedding ceremony everyone can attend, they have to deal with Penny’s family arriving and Leonard’s father spending the night with Sheldon’s mother.September 20, 2016 at 5:11 pm #1201925645
I think it was a great season premiere. Was great to see Penny’s family!September 21, 2016 at 6:25 am #1201925819
Fnally watched this. A couple of funny moments but not the strongest opener it’s had. My grade: BSeptember 21, 2016 at 7:16 am #1201925836
Guest turns in the premiere from Christine Baranski, Laurie Metcalf, Keith Carradine, Katey Sagal, Judd Hirsch, and Jack McBrayer. Considering just the regular cast costs upwards of $5 million per episode, wonder what the price tag for this was?
Overall, I did laugh a lot and they did a fairly good job of giving that huge cast something to do–except for Katey Sagal, whom the writers failed. But Sheldon’s speech at the end seemed a little left-field.
If I ever need to intimidate anyone, I’m taking Melissa Rauch with me because girl can be FIERCE.September 23, 2016 at 12:06 pm #1201926720
Good moments here and there, especially with the amount of talent in ensemble. Too little Bialik. Penny’s family stuff didn’t work. Are we supposed to believe that mother met Leonard and not Sheldon before? When?
Jack McBrayer and Katey Sagal’s characters didn’t work. He just seems unable to play out of his comfort zone, someone who is different than Kenneth from “30 Rock”. Are we supposed to believe in him as previously-toothless white trash Walter White? And she was just too believable but thus uninspired – such a whiny person that is recognizable in real life but doesn’t work as a sitcom character. She wanted to cover how messed up her family was but didn’t have any plan how to do that. What a waste of a gifted actress.September 23, 2016 at 12:11 pm #1201926727
Too little Bialik.
Truer words have never been spoken. I’ll never understand how the writers can’t have realised that the episodes in which Bialik gets a plenty to do are usually the best ones.

^^^YES! I regret Emmys dropped her (and Jane Krakowski) this year as I’m not crazy about any of the 6 eventual nominees but 4 consecutive nominations, including the most recent one when the show and Parsons were already dropped, is a great amount of recognition.September 28, 2016 at 9:35 am #1201928641
10.02 – The Military Miniaturization
Howard is visited by an Air Force colonel regarding his invention. Penny accidentally lets it slip to her co-workers Bernadette’s secret that she is pregnant.September 29, 2016 at 6:52 am #1201929158
Ok so haven’t said this in a long time about this show but A+ episode. I was the entire timeOctober 4, 2016 at 9:39 pm #1201931772
10.03 – The Dependence Transcendence
Bernadette confides to Raj she isn’t sure if she’s ready to be a mother. Penny accompanies Amy to a university mixer, and Sheldon goes to unusual extremes to assist Howard with his military project.October 4, 2016 at 9:43 pm #1201931773
I loved this episode. It worked very well for me and I love how they’re dealing with Bernadette’s pregnancy (and they gave a great message about how women don’t have to dream about being a mom).October 5, 2016 at 6:12 am #1201931833
This episode was ok. My grade: B. Thank goodness for Bernadette and the ladies this week.October 5, 2016 at 9:16 am #1201931976
I thought this week’s was very flat. The scenes were far too short–it seems like half the screentime was that proton model design they use for scene shifts.
Rauch was by far the highlight and it’s great they’re being consistent with her character, who has never related well to children.October 10, 2016 at 6:31 pm #1201933978
“The Cohabitation Experimentation” was by far the best episode of the young season. The characters’ quirks and relationships were used to full comic effect. Full of highlights, but Penny and Leonard’s joy at having Sheldon out of the apartment and Amy and Sheldon’s argument about scientific method at the end were priceless. Raj being hung up on repeatedly with that silly dog next to him in the bed was a riot too.
