At the ending part where Sheldon starts the video call with Amy, the Gollum figurine was front-orientation, eyes looking at Sheldon. However by the end of the video call, the figurine orientation changed such that it is looking towards camera direction. Accounting the different camera angle, there is at least 30° movement before Sheldon touching it. See more »

My worst fears are confirmed, the show is going downhill
28 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Last season's finale was a blunder - but I took it as a little error. After all, no TV show is perfect and so I remained excited for the return TBBT. However upon watching the first episode of the new season, I am still instilled with fear that the show is becoming more of a soap opera than a light hearted comedy. I have nothing to say about this other than it is tripe. I miss the golden days when they went on adventures (such as to the Skywalker Ranch) and did interesting things. We don't need relationship dramas! However promising episodes are on the horizon, I will think about them and ignore this trash of an episode.
