THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Domestic Fronts

big bang theory

There are new developments on the domestic front on tonight’s new episode of THE BIG BANG THEORY.

What could be bothering Penny? It seems she thinks the magic has petered out of their marriage. Leonard doesn’t bring her flowers anymore, he no longer wears pants in the house, and he doesn’t seem to show much interest in her concerns. That does it! Penny invites Amy to join her in a spa weekend instead of Leonard, leaving him with Sheldon, who has developed a sudden curiosity in other people’s lives.

Across town, the Wolowitzes have a squeaky floorboard in the baby’s room and Raj stops by to help Howard fix it. Now, what could go wrong when two science geeks try to tackle a domestic do-it-yourself job?

BLINDSPOT Sneak Peek: Trusting Jane with Roman

blindspot

It’s new territory on BLINDSPOT, as Sandstorm proceeds with its mysterious plot and Jane Doe tries to enlist her brother to help the FBI stop them.

This second half of the season has seen a new relationship been Jane and her brother, Roman. At the end of the fall season Jane rescued Roman from Sandtorm and the dominance of their mother, Shepherd, at the last moment injecting him with the same serum that erased her memories. Then he was brought to the FBI special team’s headquarters, where Jane and the team have attempted to help him recover helpful bits of his memory. The Director of the FBI has wanted to turn Roman over to the CIA for interrogation to force out his memory as time ticks away on Shepherd’s plans to use the device to bring the country to its knees, but Jane, NSA Assistant Director Naz, and FBI Assistant Director Weller have forestalled it. New into the mix is a video discovered on Roman’s mobile phone of previously unseen tattoos Sandstorm were originally testing on Jane’s body, which last week led to the solving of a new mystery in identifying Sandstorm’s plans.

Jane has been wanting to bring Roman into the field with her in the hope that it will help unleash more of his memories, as it did with her. And she hopes it will encourage memories of Shepherd’s plans. The FBI has been reluctant to let Roman loose outside of its control, but last week Roman inadvertently helped the team decode one of the new tattoos and it becomes important again this week, leading the team to consider sending Roman into the field with Jane to help the FBI deal with a dangerous biker gang now in the city. Roman has been manipulative in the past and a danger to Jane — is Weller’s concern over sending the two out alone together warranted?

New episodes of our favorite shows are finally back. That includes THE BIG BANG THEORY, where we find the old gang getting back together after the holidays.

Sheldon and Amy return from a trip to Texas, where they report a good time was not had by all — maybe by no one. And just in time for Sheldon to find Leonard and Penny clearing away their holiday decorations a whole week after Christmas. For shame!

Meanwhile, Howard and Bernadette arrive a bit late because life with a new baby is much more complicated than even life with a group of immature nerds. Raj and Stuart aren’t far behind.

One story arc reaches its zenith tonight on THE BIG BANG THEORY, while another one stutters along.

It appears the big night finally arrives for the Wolowitzes. Tonight Howard and Bernadette gather the nerd squad at the hospital to welcome their new baby. While waiting for Howard and Bernadette’s big event, the supportive gang examines how much they’ve grown over the years — all except Raj and Stuart, who feel left in the wake by everyone else’s successes. Of course, last week they did get to battle it out over which was more supportive during Bernadette’s pregnancy. Well, it’s something.

It’s also Amy’s birthday, and Sheldon and Amy celebrate as only Sheldon and Amy can. A couple of weeks ago, Sheldon tried to spring a surprise brunch on Amy that didn’t go so well. What magic could he be planning tonight?

Enjoy the last new episode before the holidays. Watch the clips below and tun in to THE BIG BANG THEORY tonight (December 15) at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS (U.S.) and CTV (Canada).

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Divvying Up the Goodies

bbt

Will Sheldon and Amy’s cohabitation on THE BIG BANG THEORY be permanent? This week’s episode makes it appear so.

A couple of weeks ago, Sheldon and Amy mused about moving out of Penny’s apartment and finding a place of their own. And then after a gene splicing experiment went well, Sheldon tried to seduce Amy into making a baby. This week, we find Sheldon and Leonard divvying up their shared belongings — but not without disagreements.

We’ve also watched Howard and Bernadette approach their pending expectancy during this season, sometimes with excitement, but also with trepidation. Throughout it, Raj has been there to lend his support to Bernadette, who originally was feeling iffy about becoming a mom. This week, Raj has some competition as best supporting friend as Stuart vies for the role during Bernadette’s final weeks of pregnancy. Will this crank up Bernadette’s crankiness?

Much more craziness ensues in America’s favorite geekland comedy. See our preview clip below and watch this new episode of THE BIG BANG THEORY tonight (December 1) at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS (U.S.) and CTV (Canada).

DESIGNATED SURVIVOR Sneak Peek: Many Plots Thicken

designated survivor

Many plots have thickened on DESIGNATED SURVIVOR as we approach tonight’s new episode.

The least of President Kirkman’s worries right now are Congresswoman Hookstraten’s designs on his office. Last episode FBI Deputy Director Atwood and Agent Wells discovered in their investigation of the Capitol Hill bombing that surviving Congressman MacLeish may have been in on the plot. Atwood was about to update the president, but as he entered the Oval Office for a private meeting, there was MacLeish, whom Kirkman’s chief of staff had vetted and approved to be named is Kirkman’s new vice president. Atwood couldn’t say anything in MacLeish’s presence, and so he left, leaving the president and vice president-designee wondering. Atwood was then contacted by a mysterious woman when his son came up missing after football practice, telling him unless he does what he is told, he won’t see his son again. Which leads us into this week’s episode.

The country is about to elect a new House of Representatives, but on the eve of the election the president is forced to consider cancelling the elections altogether. Meanwhile, the mysterious woman hands Deputy Director Atwood instructions to follow to a “t” or he won’t see his son alive again, presenting Atwood with a huge personal and professional conflict. And news of the death of the terrorist responsible for the Capitol Hill bombing, in U.S. captivity, has leaked, providing President Kirkman with one more crisis to handle.

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: The Bert and Hawking Effect

bbt

THE BIG BANG THEORY revives some past issues after stirring up all the funniness of Howard and Bernadette’s pregnancy and Sheldon and Amy’s cohabitation.

A couple of weeks ago, we saw Bert the geologist throw a party, with Penny and Amy as his only guests. Then Sheldon surprised Amy with an impromptu brunch featuring Bert as one of the surprise guests. This week, Bert gets to surprise Sheldon when he wins the MacArthur Genius fellowship, throwing Sheldon into a fit of jealousy. Nothing gets Sheldon’s goat like someone else being recognized for being brilliant!

Stephen Hawking has made a few guest appearances on THE BIG BANG THEORY, both live and by voice. This week, the world-renown cosmologist returns once again as himself when Howard runs into an old remote-controlled action figure of Hawking that he once invented. Must be something to this inventing thing for Howard.

And who knows what other nuttiness will surface in this week! Will Raj still be uncomfortable about dating the cleaning lady as he was last week?

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Sheldon and Amy’s Little Caper

bbt

Looks like maybe Sheldon and Amy’s relationship is about to move even further forward on THE BIG BANG THEORY.

Last week, Amy lied to Sheldon about her water-damaged apartment being repaired and ready to move back into, because she didn’t want to stop living with him. At first he was put off by the lie, but then he realized he liked living with her, too, and they even fantasized about moving out of Penny’s apartment and finding some place of their own. This week, the two science nerds try an experiment combining their genes and when it’s successful, Sheldon moves into warp drive to convince Amy to procreate with him.

Raj has been more in the background recently, helping Howard and Bernadette deal with their pending expectancy, but this week he has to try to explain the  woman he’s dating and what she does for a living.

BLINDSPOT Sneak Peek: The Knife and the Sting

blindspot

It’s been a couple of weeks since we last visited Jane Doe, Sandstorm, and the special FBI team on BLINDSPOT. Here’s where we find ourselves.

Last week began with a review of Jane Doe’s last mission with Sandstorm, which was to help her brother Roman steal a computer chip vital to Sandstorm’s ultimate mission. She was to upload it to Patterson to determine what that mission was. But Roman’s life was in danger and Jane aborted the upload last minute to save his life. No one on the FBI team could agree whether Jane was acting in the best interests of their team or just in Roman’s best interest. Then Weller confronted NSA agent Nas over a bug he found on the premises that transmits directly to her office. All season we’ve watched her secretly listening to office conversations — this was how she did it. The heated argument between the two got interrupted by the FBI computer system being taken down by Rich Dotcom, who egged them on to track him down. He was in fear for his life by an assassin who tracks and kills impossible-to-tag targets, and Dotcom came to the FBI for safety. He was up to his usual smarmy banter in an attempt to rattle the team while trying to save his life.

And finally, Agent Reade discovered the lead FBI investigator looking into the killing of the sexual predator from Reade’s past talking with a federal prosecutor. When he went in to see if he had been identified as being in the house at the time of the predator’s death, he learned the investigator’s team found the same hidden cache of videos showing the predator abusing boys. Reade had found such a video of himself and with colleague Zapata’s help stole it to keep from being implicated. But the investigators didn’t reveal knowing that. Then Zapata got a call from authorities saying they found a knife used to kill the predator, and remembering a knife missing from Reade’s home, she assumed it was his and went to the crime lab, taking it. The team saved Dotcom’s life through a series of twists and turns, and there was a steamy kiss between Weller and Nas.

This week, Zapata tells Reade about the stolen knife, which turns out to belong to Freddy, Reade’s friend who had been abused by the predator and whom Reade had been trying to get to testify against the predator in court. Now Zapata is worried about having murder evidence in her home and how to get it back without getting caught. Reade is worried about her returning it and implicating his friend for murder. Meanwhile, Weller and Jane go undercover in a sting operation set up by Patterson and then go missing, with the rest of the team looking for clues from two criminals implicated in the sting.

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Something Old Feels Like Something New

bbt

Something old feels like something new this week on THE BIG BANG THEORY. We’ve been focused on the Wolowitz pregnancy the past couple of weeks but this week we return to “Fun with Flags,” with Sheldon and Amy hosting an episode “on location.” New look, new feel, right?

Last week Howard felt the baby kick in the womb, which sent him scurrying to the baby store to buy furniture and toys for the new baby’s room — without Bernadette. Penny attended the Van Nuys Comic Con with Leonard, where fandom was as strange as you can imagine. And Sheldon threw a surprise brunch for Amy, inviting an eclectic group of visitors as a trial get-together that didn’t thrill invitee Stuart, who felt unappreciated as a test friend.

This week, in addition to the return of “Fun with Flags,” Amy has problems giving up her living arrangements with Sheldon, so she lies about the progress made in repairs to her damaged apartment. At the same time, Penny hasn’t been telling Leonard about secretly moving his collectibles into storage — not that he’s noticed. Word leaks out to the guys and despite the ladies doing their best to keep mum the word, there will be an accounting.
