Praise the comedy gods for Mary Cooper. While last week's episode was a bit on the dull side (with the only bright spots being the too-few moments with Wil Wheaton and Brent Spiner), this episode was pretty fabulous thanks to a wonderful visit from Sheldon's mom. Laurie Metcalf just killed it singing Soft Kitty and giving everyone the what for. Here's why she was so great:
Several comedies decided to double up this week, airing not extended hour-long episodes, but two separate episodes back to back... perhaps with the theory that since we'd been waiting all summer, we'd really want more. But in all three cases, this really didn't work: How I Met Your Mother's first episode was great, while its second one was a dud, and vice versa for Modern Family. Last night, The Big Bang Theory's second episode wasn't terrible, per se, but it just wasn't the laugh-a-minute episode that the first one was. In fact, if it had aired separately next week, we probably would have chalked it up as a fine, adequate episode with a few laughs -- instead it suffered by comparison. Here were the highlights of both episodes (thank god for Amy Farrah Fowler).
