@ Dadesh64 This is one of the sites which references the information that there are two episodes planned for Newhart on TBBT next season. It is not the one where I first encountered it, but it (the prospective recurring role info) is out there. Apparently it was one of Newhart's requirements, that this not be a "one off".
A few days ago, I spent about three hours on YouTube, watching and listening to old Bob Newhart routines he performed when we were both young, and laughing until my face hurt.
I thought that his comments to and about Penny sounded like he wrote them himself, rather than the writers of the show doing it. They nailed just what he would say, and he nailed just how to say it. This was a rare treat, and I look forward to the two appearances you mention for next year. There is never enough Newhart in the world.
Oh, that would be wonderful! And while they are at it, they should think about Wonderfalls. Lee Pace was equaly brilliant in that -- he is really good at quirky.
@ Elliot No, they swapped the running order of those episodes out of concern for the sensitivities of the viewers, because the bombing episode had been scheduled to run right after the Boston Marathon bombing. Delaying it one week gave extra time for the BM bombing to recede from minds.
The kiss I like the best is the one at the docks, the undercover kiss, with both of them seemingly lost in wonder at how great this is after all the speculation, but Kate whipping around and clocking that bad guy nevertheless. She never lost her focus on the point, despite the wondrous kissing. I love that.
I would like to seem some indication that Jane realizes that his room was invaded and his board was copied by the FBI. Thus far, he has looked at that board, but nothing has shown on his face, nor has he mentioned it to Lisbon. I'd also like to see if it is doing them any good --
I thought that Mayim Bialik swiped that scene right out from under Jim Parsons. It was brilliant. But my reaction to Penny's comment that she is passionate about her friends and Leonard was, "Huh?" I don't see that. She does not seem to get excited about much of anything any more.
@ Michelle Israel already had a female prime minister, decades ago. Ever hear of Golda Meir? She was the prime minister of Israel from 1969--1974. A LOT of countries have had female presidents and prime ministers. Some do now. Sadly, the USA is not one of them. In terms of gender equality, there is nothing "forward thinking" at all about the USA.
Worshipful fans are not the only group for whom this web site is designed. There are many folks, including some of the reviewers, who have negative things to say about programs that some fans revere. Without criticism, nothing will ever improve. And while I am sure that the ardent fans' love for their shows is sincere, so is the disdain of those who deplore bad writing, bad plotting, bad acting, bad singing, bad dancing, or whatever other afflictions are exhibited on some of the programs covered by TVFanatic. And those who choose to read reviews and comments are entitled to do so. Surely if you wish to only associate with others who would change nothing, you could find such a web site. This is not it.
