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).

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.

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.

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!

bbt

Sheldon surprises Amy, Amy surprises Sheldon, Howard surprises Bernadette, and Penny surprises Leonard this week on THE BIG BANG THEORY.

Last week, Sheldon and Amy ran into a rough spot in their cohabitation experimentation when Amy refused to follow Sheldon’s rigid bathroom rules. But Penny and Leonard served as counselors for the couple and Amy served as the grown up, compromises were reached, and all was smoothed out. Howard and Bernadette decided to take a vacation before the birth of their new baby changes their lives forever, but Bernadette’s continued morning sickness scuttled their plans so they decided to stay at home, unannounced to their friends. Next thing they knew Stuart arrived to enjoy the Wolowitz’s hot tub and Raj soon followed. It wasn’t much of a quiet home vacation with unexpected visitors.

This week we revisit the Wolowitz expectancy as Howard stresses out over the coming due date and makes an impulse purchase. Penny attends the Van Nuys Comic Con with Leonard where fans of her “Serial Ape-ist” performance emerge. And Sheldon and Amy throw a brunch in their cohabitation apartment – Sheldon style, inviting a strange assortment of guests.

See the preview video below and watch THE BIG BANG THEORY when it returns to Thursdays tonight (October 27) at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS (U.S.) and CTV (Canada).

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Domestic Issues

bbt

Things have taken a turn to the domestic side lately on THE BIG BANG THEORY.

Last week, Howard and Bernadette had a big to-do with Raj, who had found out before they did the gender of their baby. They decided they didn’t want to know before the birth, but in the last clip before the fade to black, Bernadette called Raj in the middle of the night unable to stand the suspense. Meanwhile, Amy’s apartment had been flooded and Leonard and Penny suggested that Amy and Sheldon try out life together in Penny’s apartment, giving Leonard and Penny some much desired Sheldon-free privacy in Leonard and Sheldon’s apartment. It started out alright, but Sheldon’s obsessions quickly became an issue.

This week, we see issues between Sheldon and Amy escalate and Leonard and Penny must separate the quarreling couple, Sheldon threatening to break off their relationship because Amy won’t observe the bathroom schedule. Back at the Wolowitz residence, Howard and Bernadette decide to stay home instead of taking a planned vacation only to receive unexpected guests — just as Howard is upstairs giving Bernadette a soothing foot massage.

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: When Sparks Fly

bbt

I see a flood of emotions for tonight’s THE BIG BANG THEORY.

Last week, Howard and Leonard worked feverishly to meet a fast-approaching Air Force deadline to miniaturize the military application to their new technology while Sheldon struggled with the math required to make it work, only to find out he couldn’t do the math. Stressing out and fearing the worst, the trio approached the Air Force to beg forgiveness, only to be told it was no big deal. Ho-hum. On the other side of the sitcom, Raj was trying to help Bernadette deal with her ho-hum feelings toward her pregnancy. Raj arranged an online chat with his obstetrician father in India, who calmed Bernadette’s fears, saying not all women are excited about becoming mothers but they almost all become great moms.

In tonight’s THE BIG BANG THEORY, Howard and Bernadette are bummed when they learn Raj knows the gender of their new baby before they do. And Amy’s apartment floods out, so she works out a cohabitation arrangement with Sheldon. Will sparks fly?

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Oh, heavens! Oh, no! Oh, my!

big-bang-theory

Themes on THE BIG BANG THEORY seem to be maturing, right along with Bernadette’s pregnancy.

Last week, Bernadette learned that someone at the office had let out the news that she was pregnant, something she was keeping secret for fear she would be taken off leading an important project. Then Penny confessed it was she who had accidentally let the news slip. There was tension between the two at first, but they healed the rift as Bernadette confessed she had felt insecure, always being at a disadvantage because of her size and cuteness.

Then Howard had the encounter with the military he had been fearing, meeting a Colonel who said the Air Force was very much interested in their new technology. With Leonard and Sheldon at his side, he expressed doubt about the military’s use of the technology and the colonel said it didn’t matter; they would use it. When the Colonel said they’d had another team look at it and they thought they could develop it in a shorter time span than Howard’s team thought they could, Sheldon blurted out they could halve the time.

This week picks up the themes again. Howard, Leonard, and Sheldon work overtime to give birth to their military project on time, prompting Sheldon to consume an energy drink to stay awake — oh, heavens! And Raj visits Bernadette on his day off, offering to go with her to the mall to shop for baby clothes or clean out the baby’s new room, but she is reluctant and Raj learns her true feelings about her pregnancy — oh, no! Off on their own, Penny and Amy go to a university mixer party at Bert the strange geologist’s house — oh, my!

THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peek: Howard and Bernadette’s Very Nervous Day

bbt

Last week’s THE BIG BANG THEORY was all about the gathering of family for the re-enacting of Leonard and Penny’s wedding. We met Penny’s mother and brother for the first time, and we picked up where last season left off in the supposed encounter between Leonard’s father and Sheldon’s mother — there was no “there” there, although there was a hint that there may be a “there” there some day in the future. And as Amy drove Sheldon’s mother to the airport after the wedding, Sheldon’s mother taught Amy how to put Sheldon in his place. All good fun.

In this week’s episode, we’re treated to two important story lines. We knew from last season that the military was interested the guys’ award-winning paper and the resulting patent on the infinite persistence gyroscope. Last week a representative from the Air Force Department of Material Command showed up to talk with Howard, and Howard, who has been nervous about government “spooks” following him everywhere, avoided contact. This week, he finally gets the visit. Also last season we learned that Howard and Bernadette were expecting a baby, and this week we find out that Bernadette has been keeping the news a secret at work. Only, a certain friend let the news slip out to a colleague and now Bernadette is worried about the impact that might have.

big-bang-theory

Do you miss Sheldon, Leonard and the rest of the gang from THE BIG BANG THEORY? Perk up, because they’re back! The season 10 premiere is tonight (September 19), and it picks up where last season left off.

If you recall the end of last season, Sheldon’s mother and Leonard’s father — visiting for a replay of Leonard and Penny’s wedding — went off for a little tryst. Tonight’s brand new episode picks up on the aftermath with an awkward morning after. New tonight will be the introduction of Penny’s anxiety-plagued mother, Susan, and her drug dealing brother, Randall, as the whole family gathers for the wedding ceremony. Back are Penny’s laid-back father and Leonard’s less-than-supportive mother, along with everything we love about this series.

Don’t forget that Howard and Bernadette are expectant parents and Raj is juggling two girl friends. Oh! And Sheldon and Amy have finally had coitus. Can you imagine where this is all leading?

View a clip below from tonight’s new episode and watch THE BIG BANG THEORY in its new time slot Mondays at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on CBS (U.S.) and 7:30 p.m. ET/10:00 p.m. PT on CTV (Canada).
