The Big Bang Theory Season 6 - E4 - 15th Nov - 8pm

Hi all! Checked to see if this thread was made but I couldn't find it so I decided to make one. (If this thread has already been made then I apologise)

So what did you all think of the first episode? I take it most of you have already seen this episode before E4?

I thought it was decent.

Wasn't too bad. Felt a bit flat though and didn't seem to flow very well. Plus Raj was really annoying throughout the episode

Lmao, Johnny Galecki was a bit of a party pooper. Left the stage when it started and then returned at the end. He must be shy.

Anyone know how they're doing the Space-Station scenes?

Obviously not done in front of the studio audience, but how are they doing the weightless effect?

I wondered that myself, then I found this: http://www.space.com/17891-big-bang-...et-design.html

It's not wires as you might expect.

There was too much relationship rubbish in tonight's show.

Amy and Sheldon doesn't work and Leonard and Penny are just becoming boring.

Let's stick with the geek humour.

Interesting article. Thanks. Still don't know how they did the weightless pen, (or, for that matter, the smoking monkey).

I wish they put as much effort into the writing as into the production. I spent the first four years singing the praises of this show but my god, it's sooooo tired now!

Blimey. I've started speaking like Raj!

I think the pen was just CGI. His eye line didn't seem to match up with it when it floated.

That, or just a basic wire to hold it up.

To me it looked like wires and green screens so a bit of both. It looked a bit too substantial to be completely computer generated (unless of course you are referring to green screens, CGI is a bit vague)
I obviously missed the episode with the smoking monkey but Chuck Lorre says it was computer trickery http://edition.cnn.com/2011/SHOWBIZ/....ew/index.html

Yeah, I did mean greenscreen rather than a completely computer generated image or drawing. lol

Was a bit vague.

I thought that smoking monkey one was hilarious especially when Amy said "They were out of menthol, get off my back".

Genuinely hating what they're doing to Bernadette, giving her aspects of Howard's mum's character. in fact I've been hating what they've done with her since she went to see Howard's mum in the hospital. This episode, however, just took they just took the p!ss, in my opinion. And of course, Howard needs a spine.

I liked the hospital episode, thought it was hilarious when she suddenly came out with that voice and Howard obliviously said "She's sexy when she's angry" or something.

But, yeah, they've stretched it beyond a joke now. Most of the characters are stuck in repetitive one joke ruts.

You can film a pen separately and then put it into a video. It's called matchmoving.

Raj is still hilarious, but Leonard/Penny are getting so boring (especially since I've never liked Leonard and never understood the match with the lovely Penny) and Amy/Sheldon are just terrible.

good catch - maybe, rather than being a nervous party pooper, dancing makes him nervous and when he gets nervous he needs to poop.

It seems to me to be moving away from geek humour and going almost mainstream.

I feel Parsons is now carrying the show more than ever and without him it's finished.

"You've got a call from your mother who sounds like your father"



Isn't Jim Parsons gay though, and all this relationship with Amy business?

Plenty of gay people play straight characters. Turning Sheldon gay wouldn't work, especially as Raj provides that character

Agree that some of the plot lines are coming across as a bit tired. There's always a danger that character driven shows like this turn into collections of catchphrases and party pieces as they get older.
The solution is attention to detail in the writing (some fresh blood needed?), allow some permanent character development and growth, and maybe some new central characters.

He's an actor playing a character and you're confused because he's not the same as them?

I'm confused by your confusion.

A good example of that Is Barney in How I met Your Mother, he one of the biggest womanisers on TV yet Neil Patrick Harris is gay

Just because someones Gay dosn't mean they have to play a Gay character on TV and vice versa
