  • WELCOME BACK, WOLOWITZ

    The Big Bang Theory "The Re-Entry Minimization" Review: Honeymoon of Horrors... Plus Game Night!

    Well, ladies and gentlemen, Howard Wolowitz has finally returned from space and his storyline has already improved.

  • Episode Summary

    Howard is offended when his return from space is met with little fanfare but he gets an even bigger surprise at home. Game Night turns into a battle royale between Penny and Sheldon.

    Who was the Episode MVP ?

      This is my fav Episode of this season. my fav is Game Night! it was Hilarious. I loved the way Sheldon fell over. It was hilarious & when penny & Amy started kissing Sheldon. sheldon's reaction was priceless. Love TBBT <3
    • This is the show I know and love. It's finally back to it's old standard.

      I'm glad Howard's back, but I doubt Howard's glad that Howard's back. His wife has a bad cold, Sheldon and Leonard are competing against their respective ladies in various things, his mother is sleeping with his dentist and Raj and Stewart are best buds and, to quote Raj, they "fill each other's holes now" ...... yeah.



      Sheldon and Leonard are looking more like the nerd kings in this episode, which is how it was meant to be no matter how much character development you throw in.



      Writing this on the night of the new episode's airing, I did not grimace at the idea of a new episode, instead I look forward to it. 8.5

    • Continues with the episode by episode improvement

      It's still mostly amusing rather than laugh out loud funny, but each episode has bettered the last, which is something I haven't been able to say for at least the whole the last two series. The script seemed sharper this time, some decent sight jokes, Sheldon on form, Leonard actually working as a character, all pretty good. The Howard plot line felt a bit flat in comparison, and I'm still not convinced by the Raj/Stuart pairing, but overall not bad.moreless

      i finally remembered the reason why i started watching the big bang theory. it SHOULD be this funny ALL the time. not just once or twice, but always. this show got me laughing from start to finish. this is the reason i fell in love with the show and this is what i need after a long days work - a good laugh from sheldon and howard. :)

      At last! Sheldon is bested and can't do a thing about it.



      Sheldon and Leonard are handed their respective asses by Penny and Amy at various game competitions and not before time.



      I think I was more astonished that Penny recognised the difference between "Polish" & "polish", more than anything else.



      Just goes to show that having a brain the size of a planet isn't always the best option.



      This was overall a steady round of laughter, unfortunately a lot heading in Howards direction while he was trying to bask in his astronaut glory and everyone else too preoccupied to care.



      Pride of place HAS to go to Mrs. W, "gettin' some" while Howard was in space and watching his dentist trying to flee via the bedroom window. Priceless!



      Overall, a very good outing this week, sorta proving the point that if you keep it simple it comes out great.



      Looking forward to next show.moreless
