    After four long months, the best comedy on television is back. And no, it's not Modern Family. It's Big Bang Theory.

    So excited for tonight's premiere, I am wearing my Sheldon Bazinga! t-shirt. :)

    Get on your geek!!

    The premiere was funny, many of the best lines were not even PG13, but it was good. The second episode was ok. Not awesome, although the french kissing robot machine was pretty hilarious.

    Don't know if you have heard the whole song they use as the theme song. It is written and performed by Barenaked Ladies

    I thought it was funny. I'm glad they went with a different cast of friends on the series, but the pilot was still funny .:D

    sexual predator? You mean a normal average guy as opposed to an abnormal asexual nutcase?

    Anyone who would use a Vulcan rite of passage to get laid is a predator----and no Sheldon Cooper. And since when are there 'normal' averageguys" on BBT>

    It looks like they were trying to create less geeky nerds in the pilot ,than we have today on the series. The fact that Sheldon got laid before Leonard , kind of showed they were headed down a different direction then they ended up with. Also the fact that both guys were not doing well financially and had to sell their sperm, to a sperm bank so they could go afford to go out to eat, was also a different path chosen.

    If you like BBT then go see The Muppets.

    That is all I am going to say. :)

    Does anyone notice that they use an Alienware or XPS computer for working, gaming, and networking, but use a MBP for social networking on this show?

    I just find it interesting that they use the MAC only for social networking, like FaceTime, and the gaming laptops for the more technical things.

    For example, Sheldon during the first season always used the Dell XPS and is now using some Alienware laptop. When he was facetiming with Amy he was using a MBP. They are sort of stereotyping each brand.
