MANDI'S THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK
By Mandi Nowitz

The Big Bang Theory Recap 10/2/2017

When season 11 of “The Big Bang Theory” opened, we learned that Bernadette and Howard were unexpectedly and shockingly pregnant with their second child while Amy accepted Sheldon’s proposal. Now, Bernie looks shockingly plump, which Sheldon notes but the premiere did flash forward three months so that Amy could return home from her time at Princeton. Leonard is a guest on a radio show and he is extremely nervous, especially after hearing his own voice. Even listening at home, Sheldon, Amy, and Penny agree that he has a not-so-great radio voice but he is still charming. He is talking about the research at the university that the guys are doing but he is too honest about their lack in findings and how much money is being spent.

Sheldon is mad at Leonard for the way that he spoke about physics whereas it is all too entertaining to Raj and Howard who love a good show. As for Amy, she is getting a lot of funding for her studies, much more than Sheldon and she has not shared it with him at all but Bernadette reassures her that she does that same thing with Howard. I guess women can be successful, hide it, and hide the money as well. Holla for women!! Sadly, Leonard gets called into the Dean’s office due to an overabundance of emails after his epic fail on the radio. Why should they keep giving money to the physics department if it is going nowhere? Now, he has to lie and retract all he has said in order to keep the money coming. Amy comes home to find Sheldon trying to figure out how to make physics great again so she tries to hint at some success she is having at work but he only wants it to be about him, because DUH, he’s Sheldon.

Penny and Leonard are catching up and he tells her he feels like he is back in high school again with being shamed by colleagues and going to the Dean’s office. For Penny, high school was great; Leonard, not so much. Sheldon is trying to figure out physics when Leonard comes by, seeking help on the retraction letter he must write about physics being on the verge of a breakthrough but Sheldon is seemingly on the same side because he cannot find a solution either. But, Leonard cannot lose his job over some radio interview, even though he had Sheldon concede to him. They get together and try to write this letter but barely accomplish anything despite their love for science. Maybe they should call Stephen Hawking as he always has the answers. Penny comes to look for Leonard and they are drinking “Star Trek” ale; how fun. Bernadette and Amy are having tea and venting to each other about their men and decide that they will brag about their successes to one another.

Penny is trying to motivate Leonard and Sheldon to help write the letter while getting drunk on the ale when Raj and Howard show up. Raj calls them two big babies and that freaks Howard out, knowing he will soon have two big babies but oh no, Bernadette and Amy are having their own issues. They were getting along until the fight to who is more successful gets in the way. Penny is trying to motivate the guys and finally Howard decides that they are going to see Richard Feinman, a deceased physicist who did it for the love of it. They cheer to him then drunk Sheldon runs and throws up. In the end, Leonard wrote a zombie-fied drunk email to the Dean. That was the best part of the show.

Next week, time to pick a date for Amy and Sheldon’s wedding!
