    I hope Wallace Shawn is ok. I was dinking around in internetland and saw that not only do we have the same birthday, he is actually 75 years old. That stoked a little bit of concern that maybe he has had some health issues. I just hope not. :)

    Everything I could dig up on him never indicated any health issues...hopefully that's accurate.

    He is supposed to be in an upcoming movie. May be why he is gone but they also had to do something story wise as adult Sheldon never mentioned him and Meemaw was not married in the later day show.

    In the first episode intro, was Sheldon in Star Trek clothes or was that just for this episode?

    I noticed that also. I don't have access to the previous two eps right now, but didn't recall seeing him dressed that way. So I'm going to go with "just for this episode".

    Loved the expressions on everyone's faces as they watched a Star Trek episode. The sad part is how quickly I remembered that exact episode (instantly).

    That crossed my mind as well, and I thought that I just had missed Sheldon dressed in Star Trek garb in the first episode's intro. Would be kinda nifty if they did that with each episode: Sheldon (or the others) costumed as a portent of something to come in the episode. :)

    Sheldon was dressed as the cowboy in S3E1 (IIRC), and astronaut in E2, and now ST in E3.

    Yes. Episode 1, he was wearing the same thing he has worn in the previous seasons, but was now joined by the rest of the family. Episode 2 was an astronaut and 3 was Spock.

    This week's intro: Sheldon as The Flash


    I liked this week's B storyline with Missy and George.

    Next week's preview:
    Dr Sturgis returns.

    Looks like I'm going to have to now watch the intros (usually skip them.). One thing I've noticed over the last year or so, is that MeeMaw seems to be the breakout star here. She seems to get the lion's share of screen time (after Sheldon). More than Dad or Mom and certainly more than the other siblings. I don't know if that's because of Annie Potts being a "name" actress or if it's based on feedback of her being a likable character. She's really becoming the "Fonzie" of the show.

    Yay for Missy and George! And a double-yay for next week's episode!

    Watch Zoe Perry and notice all the things she does in her performances--down to the level of minute character expressions to create Mary. The woman just deserves an Emmy.

    I loved the baseball bonding between dad and daughter. Even if she was just trying to do it for a boy, she ended up really liking it and so did dad. Just like when he took her to Red Lobster. I love those moments.

    And the "curveball" at the end of the show. Classic!

    This show is just great and manages to pull heartfelt situations out where TBBT never really did. The kids show great acting range. Sheldon as Gollum/Sméagol was really well done.

    I haven’t noticed Annie getting major story time. She just makes the most of the time she has on screen so it is memorable. I have always loved her. She was great on Pretty in Pink.

    Not to mention his perfect mimic of a clumsy Sheldon doing Richard Simmons. The kid is a tap dancer and looked naturally awkward.

    I think that was more the case last season when she was dating Dr. Sturgis and so the A or B plot of each episode was usually devoted to that relationship in some way. But since he's been sidelined this season, we've seen a lot less of MeeMaw. She's mostly been reduced back to making snide remarks about George and religion.

    I wasn't keeping track of when shows aired, and totally forgot about this one. I tuned into my Tivo and saw four episodes already recorded and binge-watched them, laughing the whole time!

    "Well honey, you look like you kidnapped yourself."

    Every character on that show is still so freaking good. I love them all!

    YS takes the pathos that TBBT sometimes would reach and then dials it up. Repeatedly. :clapping:
