For a season finale, that felt very…tame. When my east coast sources (no, not my parents, stop looking at me like that) told me that it would leave me hanging, visions of How I Met Your Mother season 9 danced through my head. Little did I know I would contend with Boxcar Kid Sheldon and the gang. Though the writers did seem to have it out for everybody. Penny and Leonard got engaged! Woohoo! And the audience rejoices. Then they pull out their calendars to bet on how many times the wedding will almost fall through. Raj has, as Sheldon...

May the Fourth be with you.Just keep your wits sharp for the Revenge of the Fifth. Professor Proton, Sheldon and Leonard’s boyhood icon, passed away shortly before May Fourth. To Star Wars fans, the date creates a play-on-words they can only manipulate one day a year. See? Funny. Instead of marathoning all six Star Wars films, however (in a few years, they’ll need to add a seventh to their programming), Leonard and Penny opt to go to Professor Proton’s funeral. They attend the wake and reflect during the service with respect, care, and sympathy. Then they make the event about...

Chaos theory: the edition of a dining room table could cause a cataclysmic end to life as we know it. Learning science every day on the Big Bang Theory. In other news, IKEA is a thing. I wonder how slow the writer’s room was that they thought, say, let’s finally get Leonard and Sheldon a dining room table! Somehow the notion strikes Leonard’s fancy (or was Penny manipulating him?) and he refuses to budge on the matter, despite Sheldon’s protests. Nothing short of taking up the extra space makes Leonard cease and desist and—when he does purchase the table and...

And now we enter in the episode of quickly wrapped plot twists. No, not really. I chalk this episode up to be the funnier of the seasons’ and NOW see why this ended up something like a mid-season twist. Leaves me guessing what’s to come for the days ahead, however. Sheldon makes use of his vacation days by latching onto everyone’s shoulder for the duration of the storyline. Really, with all the videogames in his collection, I’m a little surprised. Nevertheless, we see more signs that Sheldon, as a character, both deviates from the formula and adheres to the formula...

Big Bang Theory, Leonard Hofstadter, Penny, Raj, Sheldon Cooper -

Penny lands a big part for her ten years and counting on the Big Bang Theory—a scene on the hit (CBS) program NCIS/NCII/NCSTD. But between her wait for glory, Leonard’s awkwardness, and Sheldon’s new hobby, audiences spent most of their viewing time waiting to see who would drop the ball first. Good news is, they retired the subpar-actress side of Penny, in lieu of a different avenue: the NCIS execs cutting her anticipated scene entirely, without notice. Penny’s grief reveals her true colors…and they’re not all bright. In a mix of Penny trapping Leonard, and Leonard acting brutal, the couple...
