Don't think it has anything to do with Halloween. It was probably due to not wanting to go up against a possible Game 7 of the World Series.

It isn't new but it is the awesome episode where they dress up as Star Trek characters in the desert.

Well, he was excellent as always!

Funny line of the night... Amy (watching Howard and Raj interact) "I knew it!... they're going to have sex before me and Sheldon!" tongue.gif



EDIT: Fixed to Amy quote....

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I would laugh at Bob Newhart reading the phone book.

I don't dislike Newhart but I don't get excited over him either. That being said, I do regard the man as a consummate professional and a higher talent, which he proves effortlessly with his appearance in last nights episode. The timing, the delivery made him stand out more than any of the core cast members IMO. Regardless of my interest, I can appreciate performances and performers like that. Old school right there.

Off topic but on subject, I was watching the movie Maverick (Mel Gibson/Jodi Foster) the other day because it happened to be on. There was a scene between Mel Gibson and James Coburn and just watching Coburn's style, mannerisms and charisma was a joy. This man at his age and with a non leading role IMO complete upstaged everyone else because he came up when actors gave performances. Even the way the man moved his hands while talking was strong. I compare that to Newhart's performance and there is just an aging quality of acting that you just don't see with the up and comers.

I just loved Newhart's inquiries towards Penny's grandmothers. biggrin.gif

"…happily?" biggrin.gif

The man is just a true joy to watch in action.

What an excellent episode. Wow! My best line was Bob talking to Sheldon at the door and saying how in a few hours he has to get up and pee and wandering around the house. Man, I almost peed my pants. Excellent episode!
post #2203 of 2539
The Bill Nye stuff was just stunt casting, unfortunately. Realistically added nothing to the episode, which was unfortunate.

It was more like "H-Hap-H-Happily?"

Penny only had three lines in this show and the rest of the time they just showed her laughing at the other people's comments.

He is a funny man.

Regarding's Newhart's 'unique' disfluent comedic delivery style he said "When commenting on his stammer, which Newhart notes is different from stuttering, he stated that he was once asked if his stammering was a comedic device. "It's just the way I speak...I'm used to people finishing my sentences for me." Newhart joked that when the preparing the pilot for "The Bob Newhart Show", one of the producers approached him to say the show was running long and asked him to lose his stammer. Newhart's response to him was, "this stammer got me a home in Beverly Hills, so you need to cut some of the words in the scripts." from http://www.examiner.com/article/an-evening-with-bob-newhart-at-the-grammy-museum-full-recap

It's hard to beat Bob Newhart for what he does... just being there classes up the thing, and his delivery is better than the lines themselves.

I liked that he remembered Penny ("I remember her")... and asked if she was there (at the store) and wasn't going to come in when talking to Sheldon until he saw Penny was there.

I thought that was hilarious too! cool.gif

I loved this episode as well, but I have to ask: am I the only one who views Sheldon as too predictable these days? As I watched the episode, the scenes with Sheldon were the weakest IMO as I knew before the scene played out how Sheldon would react and where the "gag" was going. Maybe it's just me, but I feel like his character's personality has worn out his welcome for the standard scenes - they need to create some new and exciting stuff for him - much like Amy's dream sequence about the kissing in the previous episode.

I disagree and think he is the highlight of the show. Seeing his reactions, and even knowing what he will probably do, still makes him enjoyable because he is predictable and we know what he is going to do in certain situations.

No. Maybe I'm biased by autism in real life and Parenthood, but I really wish they would develop his character. Simply finding new scenes for him to be "annoying" isn't enough. They seem to add development for him only about one episode per season. And then it is cancelled immediately next episode.

Yep, my girlfriend's nephew is autistic, and one of my best friends has Asperger's (though a much milder degree than that Sheldon Cooper is portrayed as having), so autism hits home with me as well.

Sheldon has been my least favorite for a while now...

OK episode, not one of their best. I didn't have any laugh out loud momment but i had a lot of chuckles and they still make me smile all the time. Enjoyable episode, just not a side splitting funny episode. I knew something was up with Sheldon as soon as he was OK with the DVD. smile.gif

Especially after the DVD episode. The whole wearing the sweater thing was silly. Of course Sheldon paid for it. They auto bill your CC for the DVD when delinquent. Completely annoying, and would be alone and a virgin if a real person. Penny setting up Raj who of course failed miserably proved what exactly? Raj needs a slut or the guys pitch in and get him a hooker. First things first, then worry about a relationship.wink.gif

I never gave a rental store my credit card info, and I use to belong to a lot of them in the day. Just my address and we had one that was late a month on accident because we forgot and they never billed us, nor contacted us. When we returned it they even waved it saying no big deal.

Not a local store. Chains like Blockbuster did. But it was clear this was a locally owned store so they wouldn't necessarily do that (most wouldn't years ago especially which was when this happened).

Wasn't the best episode of the season. The sweater thing was kinda stupid. And I typically like Raj, but his shtick was a little much

It was only supposed to be about 2007(?) when the DVD was rented. The mom and pop chains were all but gone by then IIRC. Hell, I had gone to using Netfilx in 2006.

We still have Mom and Pop stores in my neighborhood, and they are actually busier now that Blockbuster isn't competing with them.
