The Big Bang Theory season 8 episode 10 review: The Champagne Reflection

24 November 2014 7:34 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Season 8 cements its status as the most contemplative run of Big Bang Theory episodes so far with The Champagne Reflection...

This review contains spoilers.

8.10 The Champagne Reflection

A week after commenting on the comparative seriousness of The Big Bang Theory season eight, the show offers up The Champagne Reflection, probably the most contemplative of the season. It didn't have any of those big, character or relationship-defining moments usually present in the show's best episodes, but did have a lot to say about some little things.

There's nothing that can remind you of your mortality more than having someone you relate to pass away, and that's pretty much what Leonard, Howard and Raj's storyline amounts to in the episode. Tasked with clearing out the office of another professor – one who never achieved anything worthy of the champagne his mother had bought him 50 years earlier – the guys ponder how they would feel »

24 great comedy shows that deserve more love

13 November 2014 3:37 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We asked Den Of Geek’s writers to recommend brilliant comedy shows that deserve to have more of a fuss made about them. Here they are...

Banging a drum about stuff we love is more or less our remit on Den Of Geek - hence what many readers have started referring to as the ‘inexplicably regular' appearance of Statham, squirrels and Harold Bishop from Neighbours on these pages.

To that end then, we asked our writers which comedy shows (past and present, UK or otherwise, on TV, radio, or online…) deserved more praise, and here are the ones they chose. You might already like them too, or you might discover something new to dig out and enjoy. That’s the fun of it.

Please note that this list isn’t ranked in any order, nor is it exhaustive. It’s compiled from the opinions of a group of different people, »

Five TV Show Bars That Need some Help from Bar Rescue

7 November 2014 4:11 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Bars have become a popular hangout on many of our favorite shows over the last few decades. The 70’s had the Regal Beagle on Three’s Company, the 80’s had Cheers on the sitcom of the same name, and the 90’s had Moe’s Tavern on The Simpsons. The 21st Century had it own share of hangouts on shows ranging from How I Met Your Mother to Grey’s Anatomy. In 2011, a show debuted on Spike TV called Bar Rescue, where bar expert Jon Taffer visits struggling bars all over the United States.  Taffer and his team try to save the establishments from going bankrupt. If you have ever watched this show, you know Jon Taffer has a temper, especially if he is working with a lazy bar staff. We at TV Overmind were wondering which of our favorite TV show bars could use a visit from Mr. Taffer. Here is our… »

20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Never Knew About How I Met Your Mother

4 November 2014 5:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

CBS

When Craig Thomas and Carter Bays first came up with How I Met Your Mother they couldn’t have imagined it would run for a whopping nine seasons. The idea of father sitting his kids down to tell the story of how he met his wife just doesn’t appear to have the legs to lead to a 208 episode run, and yet, thanks to creative writing and a knock-out cast, that’s exactly what happened.

The recent finale proved rather divisive, but that can’t take away from the overall quality of the series’ run. After all, as much as it was motivated by Ted’s love life, what the show as really about was friendship, seeing the gang mature over a nine-year period; Marshall (Jason Segel) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan) got married and started a family; Robin (Cobie Smulders) realised there was more to life than having a »
