    The Big Bang Theory returned and while there were a few solid laughs, it would be hard to describe this show as anything other than Two and a Half Men-lite. From the inappropriate "dictator" jokes to the odd, nonsensical dialogue, this is clearly Chuck Lorre's B show.

    So, how do I justify the high score? Because Jim Parsons is the best lead actor in a comedy and was royally screwed at the Emmy Awards the previous night. Sheldon Cooper is just such a well-written character and his performance here was enough to salvage this episode and the insane get together of Penny and Leonard.
