Kicked off last night, if anyone wants to talk about it.September 28, 2012 at 6:23 am #262461
It was pretty good. I throught them shooting in the real NASA zere gravity thing was cool.September 28, 2012 at 7:10 am #262462
The only interesting thing on this show continues to be Leonard and Amy.September 28, 2012 at 8:39 am #262463
Agreed that Amy Farrah Fowler and Sheldon are the only characters that generate interest, but that’s due entirely to the actors.
I smiled a couple of times, but this episode was treading water. Absolutely nothing changed or progressed for any of the characters. We’re going to get 2-3 more seasons, counting this one, and it would be great to see these well-paid writers and producers come up with some actual new ideas.
Kaley Cuoco, especially, gets almost nothing to do but roll her eyes or give side-eye, and drink lots of alcohol (she is ALWAYS slugging back booze). Such wasted potential.September 28, 2012 at 9:39 am #262464
I didn’t say Sheldon, I said Leonard, Sheldon became too corny and that love declaration was so off-character that was embarassing, sometimes they make him extremely childish and then annoying, I feel like they lost the character two seasons ago. Leonard though, I always found his character to be the one that put balance on the group, Raj is a ridiculously bad written character and with Howard is always the same thing with him and his mother/Bernadette, I liked him way more back in the days he used to think he was a bigshot and hit on every woman including Penny, who is only worth watching when she has a scene with Sheldon, must be the chemistry they have both on the show and on Real life which is strange because, she used or use to date Gallecki on real life and I see no chemistry at all on their scenes together. Anyway if they don’t give anymore attention to Leonard storylines and improve his scenes with Penny, this show is going to lose it for real on this season.September 28, 2012 at 10:14 am #262465
This was good, not great. I do agree that the show is spinning its wheels somewhat. I was hoping that Penny would finally return the “I love you” to Leonard, but nope…Penny’s still the same heartless, borderline-alcoholic bitch that they’ve turned her into over the past two years. The show improved dramatically over the final few episodes of season five (after a major mid-season slump where it had started to border on being unwatchable), but this episode felt like a bit of a step back. This is a show where the characters that were formerly the best (Sheldon, Penny, even Howard somewhat) have now become grating. And once again, Bialik steals the show. Between her great delivery of the “dessert is served” line to her refreshingly honest confrontation with Sheldon about how little he seems to care about their relationship, she was easily the best part of this episode.
MVP: BialikOctober 4, 2012 at 8:49 pm #262466
Poor Kaley Cuoco. Someone behind the scenes at this show is really taking out their personal issues on Penny. That’s got to be the reason they’re spinning their wheels like this.
Perennial MVP Mayim Bialik got the biggest laugh of the episode, yet again, with her crack, “It’s so cute when she tries.”
They seem to be trying to make Sheldon more human, but then undercut themselves. Parsons’s crackerjack timing elevates the material, but Galecki keeps playing the same note, over and over. Really frustrating, because I’ve enjoyed this show so much.October 5, 2012 at 12:45 pm #262467
I think the only good thing here was the other astronauts bullying Howard and Raj’s new friend from the store, because the rest was bad, Bialik has a great comedy time (dunno if that’s the expression), she delivers her lines perfectly.October 11, 2012 at 8:24 pm #262468
Another episode, another Bialik MVPOctober 12, 2012 at 8:09 am #262469
Yeah, Bialik killed it again. As usual, though, the female characters are only defined by what’s happening to the men. With such a deep bench of talent, I wish the producers and writers would try a little harder. I mean, it’s the sixth season and they are STILL wringing lukewarm jokes out of Koothrappali being unable to speak around women.
The ratings are higher than ever, so audiences aren’t helping the situation. People get into a habit and they just don’t change the channel for years. It’s like winning the lottery for a TV producer. But for me, I think this one’s going off the must-watch list, unfortunately. I can catch it in repeats eventually.October 12, 2012 at 9:34 am #262470
I didn’t even watch it last night (I’ll catch up on it tonight or tomorrow) – it’s slipping off of my must-watch list, too. In some ways I feel like I’m watching the same episode over and over again. Bialik – who it sounds like was the MVP for the third straight week – should be a genuine Emmy threat this year just for trying to singlehandedly keep this ship afloat.October 13, 2012 at 5:52 pm #262471
That episode was good, and even the king of haters has to accept that out of 10 episodes, one is pretty good, and this was the one so, kudos.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantNovember 23, 2012 at 5:40 pm #262472
Why isn’t anyone talking on this thread anymore. It’s been a month! J.C., people! Oh yeah, and Mayim Bialik is getting divorced.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantNovember 23, 2012 at 5:45 pm #262473
I wonder if Bernadette and amy are going to appear in the next episode.
