    BBT is one of my favorite shows ever, and I still think it's *surprising* that this prequel is as good as it is.

    Dang. He still doesn't seem that Howard was an enabler, and contributed to his addiction. That is sad.

    ETA - oops. Wrong thread.

    BFE, So....
    This week missy makes the baseball team. Go missy!

    Poor Georgie. “Uh huh.”

    I liked the fact that this episode really wasn’t a our Sheldon at all. It was a good episode.

    Poor Meemaw’s carpet.

    lol. Oops. I posted in the wrong thread. This was an Artie Lange response. That's what I get for opening all the threads I want to read in new tabs, all at once.

    I was trying to figure out if it was some reference back to Big Bang Theory.

    Yeah, that was the only thing I could come up with too. But it still didn't make sense and I thought, knowing me, I must have forgotten a whole segment or something.

    Honestly, when this show was announced as a non-laugh track "new style" sitcom I was skeptical. This, I believe was Lorre's first attempt at one like this. Plus they had to "sync" it with TBBT Sheldon story, and with all of that, they nailed it. The show gets better and better. These are all characters you can root for, even though they all have their quirks. And they are funny. And the best part is you can see the characters develop into what they became on TBBT.

    Am looking forward to this week's episode, which seems to be a "Young Missy."

    Couldn't agree more. And the cast is outstanding...not just the core but everyone. It's very rare to find a show so well cast from top to bottom to guests.

    If it had a laugh track (or studio audience prompted to laugh uproariously at at every other line) I would not have even tried it. I won't give any comedy with these laugh-prompts any time at all anymore.

    From today's episode (actually, the show's preview for next week):

    Mary to George, when he suggests that she embroider something related to their disagreement as to Sheldon on her pillow: "Maybe I'll push that pillow over your face."

    :p My chuckle for the day.

    The show continues to hit one Home Run after another (appropriate metaphor after this last episode). I'm really starting to think that this show is much better than TBBT ever was.

    I agree. It isn't joke one-liners after one-liners like BBT was, there is actually a story here.

    Loved the look on Missy's face when the pitcher tried to bean her.

    I thought we were going to have the typical TV/movie trope where Missy got mad and then crushed a ball over the fence or right back at the pitcher's head. Once they showed that pitch heading toward her in slow motion, I was sure that's what was going to happen. So I was very glad to see they didn't go with that unrealistic outcome (Missy probably wouldn't be very good at batting at this point) and had her charge the mound instead. That fits with her feisty character.

    Agreed. Actually when she was first walking out to the plate I assumed she'd basically fail as a hitter. We haven't seen her do any batting practice and she only just joined the team (plus pitchers are usually a weak spot in the batting order).

    Then after the first pitch at her I was thinking oh, well he'll walk her out of spite and then we'll get to see her striking him out at bat.
    But the bean attempt followed by the scuffle was a much better resolution than my original thoughts.
    "We're not rewarding violence" "Way to go violence" :D (I probably didn't get those lines quite right)

    Missy is a pitcher? I didn't get that from the episode.

    I still had that episode on my TiVo so I just rewatched the scene where Missy tries out for the coach. She makes one throw and Meemaw says, "I'm just a girl, but I think that's what they call a strike." So I guess you could infer from that that Missy would be assigned to pitch, but that's not how I saw it.
