The Big Bang Theory S07E01E02 Hofstadter Insufficiency/Deception Verification 9/26/13

What's TCF without a Big Bang Theory thread?

I really liked the set up and final joke thanking Sheldon for the coupon.

I can't remember it exactly, but the best line was the two gals in the bar.

"we have cute guys buying us drinks and not just to get to Penny".

I think the whole bit with them off by themselves was fun.

I've never seen my wife laugh harder than when Howard and Raj were doing there boob jiggle check.

Wonder if they are going to set Raj up with the HR lady.

Slightly off topic, but did anyone notice the absence of something at the end of the shows? What happened to Chuck Lorre vanity cards? There wasn't one at the end of Two and a Half Men either, although there was one at the end of Mom.

Think they read TCF? The Penny alcohol jokes sounded like here.

There was a VC at the end of the first BBT, it talked about tuxedos. Haven't watched to the very end of the other one.

IIRC, they flipped the vanity card to after the credits rather than before, at least with the first episode.

There was one after both. The second one was a pic of his Emmy acceptance speech that never made it out of his pocket.

I know, and that's what scares me. She's older, one-dimensional, boring.. and definitely not the right fit for Raj. Now maybe if she has an adult daughter she can fix him up with.

CBS now has a "on the next episode" they do during credits. The cards come after that.

I really miss Howard's mother. She was hardly there since Howard got married and in these episodes not at all. Will we no longer be hearing that grating voice of hers? She was so funny.

She wasn't in many episodes to begin with. I'm sure we'll continue to hear more about her.

The interactions between Howard and his mother are old and tired...

The interactions with Bernie however are still hilarious..

Is Penny drunk yet? Someone had to say it!! Nice PJs she was wearing I thought.

The boob jiggling thing, while cheap humor was really funny. My wife who doesn't normally watch this show was in the room and cracked up while that was on.

I just started watching it a few months ago when I got to last couple of seasons wasn't nearly as good as earlier but these 2 eps were great hope it keeps up. Is disturbing apparently Leonard would have tended to Sheldon's pants zipper. Penny the 2 fisted drinker. I miss Howard's mom too could have dealt with her and Bernadette's relationship and continued her morphing into her as in earlier eps.

I would prefer to never hear Howards' mom ever again. She was funny years ago, but it is time she moved to Florida and punish people down there and leave her poor son alone.

The boob jiggling was just ridiculous, so how come I enjoyed it so much?!?

The HR lady isn't going to add anything to the show. Have Raj hook up with Leslie Winkler, she is really funny.

Agree this with I.

Yeah, you're right. She was so outrageously strange and gross that she always made me laugh. Sometimes I get stuck in the past.

I agree except, the way Sheldon interacts with her is what makes her character funny. But the character itself is meh. Scenes with her and Raj alone would really drag the show down.

For me the best moment was "you can't barge in here like that" and then Sheldon agreeing and leaving so he could do the correct door ritual.

Haven't read the whole thread yet, but this sure seemed really raunchy for this show. (Yes, I love "Coupling", and laugh often at "Two Broke Girls".. That doesn't mean I can't still be shocked at raunchiness in shows.)

Basically, imagine if this were women -- obviously they wouldn't show it, or even hint at it, I'd think.

(BTW, this doesn't mean I didn't laugh at this scene, ESPECIALLY with Bernadette in the background seeing it..)

that scene was almost identical to a scene in Will & Grace with Will & Jack (the part where they each had one hand on each other's chest)

That's one of the small handfuls W&G scenes I had ever seen. I was thinking about it during this scene too.

And it wasn't just Will and Jack; Grace was in between them and all three had hands on each other.
