Another Thursday night, and we’re are starting to fall back into the usual routine. We did have one new premiere though, in How To Be a Gentleman
How to Be a Gentleman
Overall, this present tense narrative show is one of CBS’s weaker attempts this season. While it does have a bit of humor, none of that cast is very compelling and the writing in general is subpar. Despite the fact it follows The Big Bang Theory, I don’t think it’s long for this world.
The Big Bang Theory
The Pulled Groin Extrapolation
We get to spend a whole episode focused on Amy this week, which is nice as its been a while since we’ve had a chance to talk with Blossom. Interestingly, Amy is even more weird than Sheldon in a lot of respects, and can defiantly hold her own in the insanity department. With all of our time spent on the guys usually, it’s great to see an in depth look at Amy.
The Geography of Global Conflict
Tonights episode was pretty weak in my opinion, using a fairly disjoint and not very funny storyline. The episode almost felt like it was merely to give some play to Annie, whom we’ve not seen much of in the last season. While it was a little funny to see a glimmer of her former insane drug popping self, overall it feels like a step backwards for the group.
We get to see, why Andy is such a great leader. He inspires his crew, and brings out the best of them, and brings out a loyalty that not even Michael Scott could get.
As much as I like Whitney and Alex, I just hate all the rest of their cast. Tonight’s episode didn’t change my view on that.
