'Big Bang Theory' in HDTV on CBS - Page 56

For me it was the exact opposite. The story lines felt like they had writers block and let some kids write the script. I keep waiting for Penny/Leonard to carry on although at this point it is fast becoming past the point of caring.

I thought for sure we would find out that Kripke was behind the office misery

I wish their boss would have washed his hands after he went pee.

Or at least have Sheldon comment on it after he left.

Good observation. Certainly would have been a better opportunity for humor than jousting for urinals.

Lorre's anti-Catholic rant in his vanity epilogue at the end of the most recent program (...pedofile...contraception...) should serve to get his bu!! kicked by CBS, no matter how popular the show is. Unbelievable.

Nice though that it explains the previous professor's reason for loosing it.

Those were funny moments too when sheldon closed the door and he was there naked and he comes walking in when the guys are there. Plus Sheldon's comment about his privates had me almost spitting out my soda.

I'm Catholic, and I agreed with Lorre's rant (there are more important things to worry about in this world morality-wise than homosexuals and contraception...). It was also tongue in cheek, considering his vanity cards ARE his public outlet to express his opinions.

And CBS has censored his vanity cards from time to time; if they didn't like it, they wouldn't have allowed it to air.

I saw on Facebook a friend had this interesting quote: "When did religion go from feeding the hungry and helping the poor (Jesus) to stopping birth control and gay marriage (current republican candidates)? Doesn't seem very Christian."

Put me in the camp with those that felt it was tiered, uninspired writing, not smart funny writing. Maybe it might have been funnier, if Sheldon and Kripke had studied the situation, analyzed the weight of the ball, checked the humidity, taken a few practice shots to calculate the needed arc and force, determined optimum distance and sank free throw after free throw - you know use their knowledge and minds.

I really feel the show is slipping into a mind set where the characters are made fun of, such as with the painting, another bad plot device - one of many this season. I used to look forward to the show, now I watch it after I've watched the other stuff I record on Thurs.

I don't think their mind, regardless of how smart they are, would make up for the lack of physical strength and physical coordination. You can think it all you want, but getting your muscles/body to pull it off is another thing.

Back on topic, now

Fellas... this thread is about the Big Bang Theory. Not politics or religion.

I'm so sick of how it seems like they always have a guy storyline and a girl storyline. I so wish they would go back to Penny being the only main female on the show, it was just better back then. The girl storylines are never interesting or that funny IMO. Please, oh please, can they get rid of the Amy character, nothing she ever says or does is funny IMO.

They could have made a much better episode about the battle for the office if they had cut out the painting story, which was not funny and kind of dumb.
post #1666 of 2539
I think Sheldon shouldve given the office to Raj, just to tick off Kripkey further.

I think the latest outing tonight was a series low for me. I sat there and did not laugh once.

Not even when she was playing BonJovi's Dead or Alive on the harp?
post #1669 of 2539
Not even when Amy said she could trim every hair on Penny's body?

Actually - Amy said she would let Penny trim any hair on HER body....
post #1671 of 2539
Seems to me they're dumbing down the characters quite a bit except for Leonard.
post #1672 of 2539
I laughed quite a bit in this episode...

Is it me or Berdanette is looking hotter every day while Penny is looking more washed out?

I think in the last scene Kelly was really laughing at .. LOL

Probably one of the top 5 funniest episode that I can remember. Last nights was freaking perfect. Howard's conversations with Bernadette were soooo freaking funny. His testing as an astronaut was just so dang funny I couldn't stop laughing at his comments, especially the digging a hole. Good stuff last night.

Plus Amy and her Harp and her comments with Sheldon were excellent. Great episode overall!

(What is up with Penny's hair! Hate it!)

I was laughing so hard it almost hurt. After you get past the creepy Howard persona and listen to and watch his delivery, you realize that Simon Helberg is a very talented and very funny actor.

If you enjoy the Coen Brothers' films, Helberg's short but unforgettable turn as a young rabbi in their 2009 film "A Serious Man" is hilarious. Be forewarned that the film is definitely not for everybody. You have to enjoy their offbeat, very dry, very dark sense of humor to enjoy it. Even then, you might not, as much of it is filled with Jewish in-jokes that would fly over the head of most people. It happens to be one of my favorite films, but I wouldn't recommend it to everyone I know.

Her there's only so many times a woman can ask was freaking funny.

I do wish the that since Sheldon was rebelling against order we would of gone a little more outside his box.
post #1677 of 2539
I liked the line about Sheldon having seen Penny naked, and Leonard's concern for said incident.

Agreed. His delivery of those lines about his NASA training were amazingly good, made the whole scenes that much better. So freaking funny.

I agree, I think they blew an opportunity to have Sheldon rebel and go completely opposite or outside his box. That was comedy gold they missed there. His bongo playing was hilarous and they could of done sooo much more with it. Shame.

I was thinking he'd sleep with Amy or do something he'd regret like get a tattoo something way outside of voiding the roommate contract or bongos. Still a funny episode tho
