  • WHO SHOULD GET THE POSITION?

    The Big Bang Theory "The Tenure Turbulence" Review: Meerkats, Assemble!

    After several weeks of very good episodes, "The Tenure Turbulence" felt like a step backward, as so much of its humor—if we want to call it that—relied on the tired tropes that I thought we'd finally put behind us.

  • Episode Summary

    EDIT
    Competition between the guys increases when a slot for a tenured professor opens up and they start to schmooze the tenure committee members that include Mrs. Davies from Human Resources who Sheldon has crossed paths with before.

    • Losing their touch

      2.5
      The crew seem to be losing their touch. This new episode was thoroughly predictable. Like the quarrel between Howard and Sheldon over the parking lot, the story line had no developments. Even the scene of Leonard in the gym was slow and non humorous.

      • Sheldon presents the (African-American) HR Director a box set of Roots on DVD, and doesn't understand why it is offensive.
        Roots was a television miniseries in the 1970's that was based on a novel by Alex Haley, which depicted the history of an African-American family, beginning with the story of Kunta Kinte, a slave in the South.
