The Big Bang Theory

the-big-bang-theory-the-focus-attenuation

Separate guys and girls weekends don’t go as planned for anyone involved as the ladies head off for a fun Las Vegas weekend leaving the boys distraction-free to work. Well, as it turns out, not so distraction-free. Although Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) have plenty of alcohol-induced fun on their own, Penny (Kaley Cuoco) isn’t so lucky staying in the hotel room the entire night boning up for a presentation.

The introduction of Raj‘s (Kunal Nayyar) girlfriend Emily (Laura Spencer) to the gang goes well for everyone except Penny (Kaley Cuoco) who picks up on the woman’s obvious dislike for her. Discovering that Raj came clean about their drunken hook-up years ago, Penny attempts to mend fences, but it doesn’t appear that Emily and Penny are going to be getting matching BFF bracelets any time soon.

Fretting about throwing out the first pitch at an Angels game, Howard (Simon Helberg) enlists the help of Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) and Raj (Kunal Nayyar) in an attempt not to make a complete fool out of himself. Despite all the practice he can stand, Howard is forced to admit his shortcomings. His out-of-the-box solution, while novel, doesn’t exactly endear him to the fans.

With the season premiere returning Sheldon home and introducing a new career for Penny (Kaley Cuoco), “The Junior Professor Solution” deals with the leftover fallout from last season’s finale and Penny’s future in pharmaceutical sales. Sheldon (Jim Parsons) returns to the university still dead set against continuing his study of String Theory. Much to Sheldon’s surprise, the university offers the scientist more money and a way to choose a new field of study but only if Sheldon agrees to become a junior professor and teach a class.

Taking place 45 days after last season’s finale which saw Sheldon (Jim Parsons) rebel against change and decide to leave home to ride the rails, “The Locomotion Interruption” finds the scientist at his wits ends after being robbed of his valuables, dignity, and his pants, and forced to call Leonard (Johnny Galecki) for help. Taking Amy (Mayim Bialik) along with him, Leonard drives to Arizona to bring his friend home on what proves to be a pair of uncomfortable car rides both to and from the copper state.

Picking up a thread from a previous episode, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) continues to struggle with the notoriety of his famous scientific discovery (which only came about through a mistake). In an attempt to make her boyfriend feel better, Amy (Mayim Bialik) even reaches out to Wil Wheaton who attempts to use his own past as an example to make Sheldon feel better about his circumstances. Finally coming to terms with his celebrity, Sheldon is upset when Leonard (Johnny Galecki) disproves his roommate’s entire theory (and takes away his accidental, but still greatest, achievement).

To try and stop Sheldon (Jim Parsons) from getting upset over the discovery of a rented DVD his roommate never returned, Leonard (Johnny Galecki) agrees to walk a mile in Sheldon’s shoes by agreeing to wear an uncomfortable and itchy sweater which constantly itches and bothers him (without acting crazy or complaining) while attempting to return the DVD. The fact that the store went out of the business years ago and the owner has died, however, make his quest a bit harder than he expected.

Sheldon (Jim Parsons) becomes miffed when his childhood idol Professor Proton (Bob Newhart) enlists the help of Leonard (Johnny Galecki) to look over a scientific paper he was writing. Neither his conversation with Amy (Mayim Bialik), who points out how some people might consider him annoying, nor his attempt to make the former television scientist jealous by publicly hanging out with Bill Nye make the scientist feel any better about the situation.

In the show’s Seventh Season premiere Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) bond while Leonard (Johnny Galecki) parties in the North Sea on his science excursion, Howard (Simon Helberg) attempts to shake Raj (Kunal Nayyar) out of his funk caused by loosing his girlfriend (Kate Micucci) by taking his best friend to a faculty mixer, and Amy(Mayim Bialik) and Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) room together during a science convention out of town. The result is a rather lackluster opener to the season, with a few fun moments, that provides three separate stories, only one of which has much to offer.
