Yea. This is now my favorite half hour show and probably my favorite new show last year.

I am looking forward to the new season.

I agree about the bad timeslot. There are 3 shows on at the same time that basically appeal to the same demographic. Since I can only record/watch 2 of them, I am afraid that the Terminator will have to be forgotten.

Good season opener. Glad to have it back. Looking forward to the (de)evolution of Leonard and Penny's relationship.

Sheldon's ranking of Catwomen was spot on.

Sheldon using that plastic contraption to fold his shirts was funny enough---but when he started folding his socks with it..Posted Image

I like the look on his face when he discovered that Penny had tried to help and turned the first pair into an inside-out ball. Posted Image

My fav sit com of last year is back and it hit the ground running! Posted Image

I don't know about any of you but i'm gettin' me one of those shirt folding thingies as soon as possible lol. Posted Image Sheldon's facial ticks when he was lying to Leonard was priceless...

"What's wrong with your face?"

"No need to bring my looks into this."

Posted Image

The ending was cringe worthy as Leonard stuck his brain in his mouth with Penny. Posted Image

He's one of those actors where I marvel at how the show found the perfect match between actor and role.

Definitely, and Jim must be a fairly gifted speaker in real life as well because how he memorizes and rattles off his sometimes mile-long lines of science-packed dialogue is beyond me! Posted Image

That's why I was so disappointed that there are no bloopers or outtakes on the season one DVD because I wanted to know how much he flubs his lines before getting them right lol.

The season opener did quite well in the ratings (imho) considering it was on against the Heroes Refresher and Terminator. It did a 5.7/9.

It is funny that Sheldon even mentioned the competition. When he was coming out of his room with his emergency travel bag he said something about it he keeps it packed because according to Homeland Security and Sarah Conner it was a good idea. (paraphrasing from a 44 year old brain) LOL

Gotcha beat. I already own the blue plastic folding thing. Posted Image

I loved the Catwoman and X-Men rankings. But I wish they had put Sheldon's top secret military collider under a phony agricultural station near Flatrock, NV, as that would have made it an Andromeda Strain reference. Posted Image

Very solid season opener.
Lots of great moments.
The laundry room scene was pretty funny when Sheldon
was folding his socks with the shirt folding contraption.

We also learned about some things that would upset Sheldon, or be a pet peeve of his

Changing the contrast or brightness setting on the television
Taking a band-aid off in front of him
Buy generic ketchup
Forget to rinse the sink
Talk to him through the bathroom door
adjust the thermostat
pronouncing the silent "t" in often
making fun of trains Posted Image

and one I couldn't understand after the thermostat one,
something about cilantro.

That happens to be one I agree with. Posted Image I assume that all the televisions in their apartment are properly adjusted with DVE or Avia at the very least, if they haven't been professionally calibrated. So of course mucking around with the settings would be a hanging offense. Isn't it in your house? Posted Image

He's mentioned Terminator before. He questioned the logic of Skynet creating a murderous cyborg in the form of a hot teenage chick. Posted Image

Joe

This show really deserved an emmy nod, I think it's one of the best sitcoms on TV today, very smartly written and performed. And the Season opener was great. Yeah up against Chuck and Sarah Conner Sucks who thinks of these schedules. But there are other ways to watch, and I believe all three shows will be on Itunes this year again.

People who know me would not be surprised that the "changing the brightness and contrast on the television" line elicited a very loud laugh.

I had spent the early evening before watching this readjusting the convergence on my friend's HDTV. Posted Image
