The Big Bang Theory is a really remarkable thing. You might think you like it, but you’re wrong. You’ve just been afflicted with a very particular strain of comedy Stockholm Syndrome, because it’s on constantly.
The NME actually tried to blag that it’s the new Friends, which is only really true insofar as they both utilise television as a medium. Friends has jokes and a coterie of roughly believable, rounded characters around which mad things and people can happen. The Big Bang Theory places the cart before the horse in having the one-dimensional crackpots centre stage constantly. It’s wearing in the extreme.
It’s a show about stereotypically socially awkward nerds which looks and feels like it was written by 8 jocks with a copy of Encarta. It’s like being trapped in a very small room with a load of drama students with their »

It’s been rather gloomy in the world of The Big Bang Theory for the last two weeks. The seismic revelations of the eighth season finale left the opening episodes of this season with a lot of narrative heavy lifting to do. With that mostly out of the way, for now at least, ‘The Bachelor Party Corrosion’ was an opportunity for the programme to get back into its comfort zone and make its audience laugh once again.
There were two pretty well-worn premises in play this week. First, Howard and Raj decided to kidnap Leonard and Sheldon in order to give the former the bachelor party he hadn’t received before eloping with Penny at the end of last season. »

The third installment of The Ring horror movie franchise, Rings, was originally scheduled for release this Fall. But the film has hit a huge snag and the studio, Paramount Pictures, announced that the release will now be pushed back to sometime in 2016. Entertainment Weekly reports that Paramount has un-circled November 13, which was the original release date for the film, and that the film will open "sometime next year." Rings, originally titled The Rings 3D, stars The Big Bang Theory cast member Johnny Galecki, Matilda Lutz, and English actor Alex Roe, and will presumably attempt to find a yet a third way to employ the "cursed videotape that kills you days after you watch it" set up. That theme already seemed strained in the previous effort, The Ring Two, which performed well at the box office and actually enjoyed a higher opening weekend haul »
Actress Mayim Bialik is at the cutting veg of entertaining. The Big Bang Theory star, who plays Amy Farrah Fowler on the hit CBS series, is sharing her recipe for vegan spanakopita with Us Weekly. The meatless Greek appetizer “is full of flavor, filling, and healthy,” the author of Mayim’s Vegan Table, 39, says. “It doesn’t crumble in your hands like other party foods.” Check out Bialik’s tasty recipe below! Vegan Spanakopita Ingredients: 1 cup raw almonds or walnuts 1 tbsp fresh basil 1 tbsp fresh rosemary 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon [...] »
There are over 3 billion comedy shows currently being made in America (rough estimate) and a lot of them are no good at all. There’s only so often you can take 22 full minutes out of your busy day to give a new, disappointing comedy a go before you decide to just stick with what you know (and if ratings are anything to go by, then “what you know” is usually The Big Bang Theory. You idiots).
Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a sitcom set in a police precinct in Brooklyn, shouldn’t be a hard sell – it’s enjoyed critical success, even winning the Golden Globe for best comedy in its first season. But it hasn’t gained the traction it deserves within the zeitgeist and now, at the start of the third season, seems as good a time as any to try to correct that. So here are 10 of the 3 billion »

Let’s talk about what didn’t happen in this, just the third episode of the new season of The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon and Amy did not get back together, or make any movement toward addressing the issues that caused their breakup. Leonard and Penny are happily married, but didn’t make any movement towards officially cohabitating. Howard and Bernadette didn’t have a scene together, Raj didn’t mention girlfriend Emily, and Stuart must be super-busy at the comic-book shop because he didn’t even appear in the episode.Which is all to say that this, just the third episode of the new season, dropped the ball on advancing any of the story lines in significant ways, and instead felt like one of those generic January episodes that a series that does 24 episodes a season is wont to do. And those types of filler episodes can be fine, »

“Empire” continues to post impressive delayed viewing numbers. The second episode of season two grew from 13.7 million viewers to 18 million in live + 3 days of DVR and VOD playback, an increase of 31 percent, according to Nielsen estimates. The hip-hop soap opera also grew 40 percent in the advertiser-coveted adult 18-49 demographic, going from a 5.5 rating/17 share to a 7.7/24. That puts “Empire” more than two full ratings points above its nearest competition in L+3 for last week thus far; CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” followed with a 5.6/19.
