    The undisputed number 1 rated Comedy Series (and one of my favorite guilty pleasures) returns tonight, 26th Sept for a seventh season.

    The writers ( Chuck Lorre and his squad ) have been on a role for the past 2 preceding seasons, but i would love a shakeup. A total left field storyline that will take this series to new hights.

    *The whole “will Sheldon and Amy (Shamy) finally DO IT” has run it’s course. No one is anticipating that anymore. Frankly, no one wants innocent Sheldon to get sexual. Rather make him crazier. Make him go mad! I want Sheldon to totally own this season.

    *Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar need to get better material. I think the weak material the supporting cast get really drags this series down. Jim Parsons cannot continually carry this show, with Johnny Galecki sporadically shining when he feels like it.  They need to get the whole show cohesive and strong.

    *Penny either needs to shine or go. Kaley Cuoco is a great actress, but she really needs to step it up, or go supporting with Simon and Kunal. She aint ever getting another Lead Comedy Actress Emmy nomination again, so she needs to bring it.

    *It would be absolutely fantastic if Sheldon, Howard, Raj and Leonard’s mothers meet and create the most epic showdown of characters! Wreak total havoc.

    Season 7 premiere Episodes 1 & 2: “The Hofstadter Insufficiency” & “The Deception Verification”

    “Sheldon and Penny spend time together, while Howard helps Raj deal with his break up with Lucy. Leonard returns from his expedition a few days early and elects to spend his extra few days with Penny, causing a rift in his friendship with Sheldon. Howard and his mother’s relationship adds a new dimension”

    I love this idea!
    Have we ever seen Howard’s mom on screen? If not, who would play her? (Maybe Angela Lansbury and she can win an Emmy  )

    Another nomination again? When did she ever get one in the first place?

    I agree about the supporting cast needing to get better material. I don’t watch the show, and I don’t even like it, but I saw a handful of episodes last season, and in all of them, Galecki was severely underutilized. I was like, wait…wasn’t he supposed to be the original lead of this show?

    For me, Simon Helberg and Melissa Rauch are by far the best/most interesting/most tolerable characters on the show.

    For the record, Cuoco has been submitting in Supporting the last few seasons.

    This is the only Lorre show I like, because the comedy is character-driven and not smut-driven. I think they’ve expanded the cast very smartly over the past few years with ideally-cast roles in Amy and Bernadette, plus Raj’s girlfriend from last season (hilariously played by the same actress who plays the day care/senior care center operator on Raising Hope).

    Looking forward to the new season (this and How I Met Your Mother are the only two multi-cam sitcoms I still watch), but I’m a little discouraged by the clip in the ads for the premiere that show a giant tentacle reaching up to grap Leonard on the boat–hope that’s a dream or fantasy or something. The premiere promises some Penny/Sheldon interaction, which has usually been comic gold.  

    We’ve only seen Howard’s mom in glimpses from the back in the distance. The only person I can even remotely imagine playing her would be Margo Martindale in a fat suit, but this should stay like Maris on Frasier: we should NEVER truly see her.

    I’ve decided to watch this season. 

    I had only caught a few episodes of the earlier seasons, and they were awful. So, I was pleasantly surprised by most of their episode submissions (for this year’s Emmys) and how well the cast gelled in those episodes. The “Dungeons & Dragons” episode as well as the episode where one of the character’s parents dies were the two that made me eager to watch this new one.

    I guess I can provide some sort of unique viewpoint as I’m not tired of the characters because I’ve seen less than 15 episodes. From what I’ve watched, Simon Helberg and Mayim Bialik are my favorite parts of the show…

    Just finished watching the first episode “The Hofstadter Insufficiency”. I liked this episode. Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco have great chemistry together. They are really funny together. I thought Jim Parsons did some great acting this episode. But I’m sure he’ll get another episode down the line that can be an Emmy submission for him. Also, I’m glad that Johnny Galecki got rid of that beard in the second episode. That thing was just atrocious and was a distraction for me. lol. Nayyar had some funny scenes, and I hope we get to see more of Regina King this season, since I won’t be able to see her on Southland anymore.

    Grade for “The Hofstadter Insufficiency”: B+

    I actually didn’t like the first episode that much. Sheldon just seemed unreasonable and the Raj story was so pointless! With that said, the banter between Bernadette and Amy was a highlight for me.

    I liked the second episode a lot more. I was glad that Helberg’s character got to call out Sheldon and resolve their ridiculous fight. Plus, this episode would be a great submission for Helberg if he could get in. Due to the estrogen, he has a lot of range and the ‘boob grabbing’ scene was hilarious.

    The Hofstadter Insufficiency: It was a solid B in my opinion. Parsons was the MVP in my opinion.
    The Deception Verification : This was much better and a perfect A+ in my opinion with the MVP being Helberg.

    first episode was good with the penny/sheldon stuff and amy/brendatte screens. The raj stuff was ok and I hope then went through the raj is horrible at talking with Woman storyline already and ready to move on with Raj.

    The second episode was great because of Helberg. Might be the best performance of the week comedy or drama. I hope the ending is the writers way of ending the sheldon vs. Lenord episodes for a couple of seasons (build up to a bigger towards the end of the series.;)

    Urgh, the Howard plot in the second episode was terrible for me. Cliche, stereotyped and so tired. Surprised many here like it, it’s one of the worst sitcom tropes. Ouside of Sheldon/Leonard, it was a mess. I’ll go right ahead and say it was a B- at best (and only because of Sheldon/Leonard friction).

    The first episode was much, much better, and it might be one of the show’s best episodes ever in fact. Sheldon/Penny are a great pairing, and I thought their scene was a great moment for Parsons and Cuoco (finally the writing gives her something to step up a little bit). Sheldon/Penny is best combination of characters the show has, and I think they bring the funniest and most human in each. It was also seismic (to TBBT levels) to have Sheldon say his feelings were hurt. To me, it speaks volumes about where they intend to take him this season, and it could be very interesting to have Sheldon open up more. Also, please more Sheldon/Penny storylines, ever since Amy came along, they reduced their interaction, which is a damn shame. 

    I also don’t get complaining about Raj’s storyline. After last year’s finale, it would’ve been weird to ignore the progress Raj had made and his loneliness and reluctance in getting a new girlfriend. It wasn’t extraordinary or anything, but it was an excellent way to continuing the progression and development of the character.  And Regina King is always good in this show, so nice move getting her to be a love interest for Raj.

    I also really liked the second episode. Helberg was obviously the MVP, and this would be a fantastic emmy episode for him if he were to ever get nominated. That was my favorite storyline this episode, although Sheldon’s storyline was also funny. Overall, a great episode that could make for a great series submission.

    Good example of how adept this show is at character-based humor. Nearly all the jokes build off character traits and quirks and these very different types of people who’ve somehow formed their own kind of little family–it reminds me of Cougar Town in that respect. It was nice to see them mix up the pairings a little, and Bernadette and Amy were hilarious together. (“Guys are hitting on us–and not just to get to Penny!”) The boob-grabbing scene with Howard and Raj was much funnier than it should have been, thanks to the performances, especially Bernadette’s riotous reaction face in the background. Kaley Cuoco and Jim Parsons killed it in their scenes together, and Galecki was great in the boat party phone call scenes. Also loved the capper with Leonard showing his boatmates Penny’s movie debut.

    It’s broad humor, to be sure, but it works–mainly because I can sense that the writer/producers feel genuine warmth toward their misfit characters.

    The Big Bang Theory Season 7
    Premiere Ratings Break Record

    By: Scott Johnson on September 27, 2013

    The Big Bang Theory Season 7
    premiere set a new record as its
    biggest season premiere yet.
    According to CBS, the seventh season premiere of The Big Bang Theory at 8PM was first in viewers (18.30m), adults 25-54 (7.0/20) and adults
    18-49 (5.3/18). At 8:30 PM, a second episode of The Big Bang Theory was first in viewers (19.52m), adults 25-54 (7.6/20) and adults 18-49 (5.8/17).

    The Big Bang Theory was Thursday night’s #1 program in these measures.

    Not only did the Big Bang Theory beat all the other shows on Thursday night, but it also set a new high for Big Bang Theory premieres. In fact, compared to last year’s season premiere, The Big
    Bang Theory was up +11% in adults 25-54 (from 6.3/17), +6% in adults
    18-49 (from 5.0/16) and added
    +2.64m viewers (from 15.66m +17%).

    The Big Bang Theory also hit a new
    milestone with its best premiere day
    opener on CBS.com in the show’s
    history

    I thought it was all right, both episodes were..meh, with the second having one funny scene with the boob thing and the first episode having Sheldon actually layout that his feelings were hurt, that could be an interesting season for his character that has got very lame over the years.        I liked Bialiks reaction ”boys bought us drinks”.

    I have to say, I really loved this new episode. Kunaal was, of course, the weakest link, but it’s a good thing he wasn’t in this episode a lot. Melissa Rauch was HILARIOUS. I have never seen her be so hilarious. I loved the pairings for the scavenger hunt. Everyone worked really well together, and it was great.
