Big Bang Theory S8E7: “You Really Went Where No Man Has Gone Before”

Standard

By Josh Axelrod

“The Misinterpretation Agitation” was a weird episode even by “Big Bang Theory” standards. Not only did it dive head first into the heart of nerd culture, but it tried to tackle the issue of gender politics in the field of science. Take a guess which storyline was most successful.

Big Bang Theory S8E6: “My Kit Kat Has Melted. All Is Lost”

Standard

By Josh Axelrod

“The Expedition Approximation” had two questions on its mind:

  1. Will the balance of power shift between Leonard and Penny now that Penny makes decent money?
  2. How long can Sheldon and Raj last in a hot, dark and moist mine?

One question was answered in spectacular question, while the other required a little perspective for Leonard and Penny to get over an inherently stupid issue.

Big Bang Theory S8E5: “I’ll Make the Popcorn”

Standard

We’ve seen set-ups like this a million times before on this show. The man-children and women will split up for an episode and go off to do their own respective things. In “The Focus Attenuation,” the man-children decided they needed a weekend to themselves to come up with the next big invention. The women decided this was an excellent opportunity to get schwasted in Vegas.

Big Bang Theory S8E4: “I Told You She Exists!”

Standard

This week’s “Big Bang Theory” featured two funny yet troubling plotlines. I was really hoping that the guys having to help run Stuart’s comic book store would be a season-long plotline, but instead it just led to some cheap (albeit quite funny) relationship and financial jokes. I’m not surprised Penny is buried under mountains of credit card debt, and I hope that off-hand admission comes back to haunt her and Leonard at some point this season.

Big Bang Theory S8E3: “It’s better than hot, it’s binding!”

Standard

By Josh Axelrod

“The Big Bang Theory” is the ultimate comfort food. With every episode, you can always expect to chuckle a lot, laugh out loud a few times and just have fun with these group of nerds and their unbelievably patient significant others. Episodes like the “The First Pitch Insufficiency” perfectly capture what this show is at its core: Inoffensive comedy that doesn’t require much brain power, but still rewards those willing to stick with its episode-long jokes.
