Other than Downton Abbey I also watch CBS’ comedy series ‘The Big Bang Theory’. It’s about four socially dysfunctional geniuses of science living in their own world of geeky stuff until a woman who lives across the hall arrives that could change their perspectives of life in the social context. These four geniuses are played by the award-winning Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper), Johnny Galecki (Leonard Hofstadter), Kunal Nayyar (Rajesh Koothrappali) and Simon Helberg (Howard Wolowitz). The woman across the hall is played by Kaley Cuoco (Penny). The series is now on their fifth season joined by two more characters played by Melissa Rauch (Bernadette Rostenkowski) and Mayim Bialik (Amy Farrah Fowler).
I know it’s already late to give episode guides since the season is already halfway its ending but still I would like to insist on giving an episode guide. Their episode guides are one-liners making a room for discussion on what could happen. Last episode (aired 11/10/11) Leonard and Penny experimented on hanging out alone while Sheldon tries to cure his ornithophobia (fear of birds) when a bluejay camped out on the living room windowsill.
Next episode (Season 5 Episode 10 – The Flaming Acquisition), Sheldon finds himself jealous when Amy goes on a date with Stuart (TV.com). Stuart (played by Kevin Sussman), by the way, is the owner of the Comic book store where these four guys buys their comic book stuff. I have long waited to see more of Sheldon’s emotions. He seems to be uptight and always on the guard when he smells danger and he knows how to keep his cool. Now seeing him jealous might be the first time that he now acknowledges love and attraction to the opposite sex.
So, what do you think of what will happen next week on Big Bang Theory? Tell me what you think. 🙂
