Well, apart from the "medical case of the week", which is what drew my interest in this series to begin with, it was a pretty lackluster beginning to a new season IMO. The repeated flashbacks nearly made me reach for the Dramamine, and I could have done without seeing Bethenny Frankel who's apparently "too cool" for a theme party these days. And while I won't spoil it, the big build-up as to Emma's identity was just silly. I think we ALL know who she is by now--the melodramatic cliffhanger was unnecessary.

Saw this ep as a re-run and while I remembered it, and enjoyed it, you have to do some considerable suspending of disbelief to view it. How doe a guy THAT ugly get a girlfriend THAT attractive? Danny and Grace just up and fly to Japan? The Japanese people just HAPPEN to speak English?
I agree--his last line to Stuart in the comic book store was horrible and immature. When Leonard said "Sometimes little people are trapped in big people's bodies" (or something like that), he wasn' t kidding. Sheldon needs a good dose of Mama Cooper, but as I mentioned in another post, that might not happen because Laurie Metcalf is getting her own show this Fall. Yay for her, but I'll miss her on TBBT.
I'm gonna go out on a limb here and propose that Leonard moves in with Penny across the hall, while RAJ moves in with Sheldon. It sort of starts the cycle anew because Leonard was in a budding relationship, and now Raj is too; Sheldon's accustomed to that dynamic already so that satisfies his need for status quo, even if the people are different. Besides, Raj did move in with Sheldon temporarily (when Leonard "moved in" with Priya at Raj's apartment) and they both seemed to enjoy it, though a permanent arrangement might be a challenge--and a source of laughs for us. On a different topic, for anyone not following news about the new Fall schedule, Laurie Metcalf, who's BRILLIANT as Shelly's mother Mary Cooper, is getting her own show called "The McCarthys" about an Irish Catholic family in Boston. That means we're PROBABLY not likely to see Mary Cooper make any appearances on TBBT...unless the Wizard gives him a heart and he proposes to / marries Amy.
Oh, this isn't Granger's first fuck-up; an agent he was handling died and he proffered some lame excuse. I don't care about the show's move to a new timeslot (I don't watch Castle or The Blacklist), but if Granger takes Hetty's place, I'm done.
Me too. If she leaves and Granger becomes team leader, that's it for me.
I'm guessing they moved it so that the original NCIS would be a strong lead-in for the new spin-off series set in New Orleans (which was picked up for next season). I"m with PatrickC--move Person of Interest to Monday and let NCIS carry all of Tuesday.
I just KNEW Granger would find one last way to f*ck with the team (and I don't buy his BS about his having nothing to do with Hetty being placed on leave) one last time before the season ended. If Hunt leaves and that twatwaffle is left in charge, I'm done with the show. As for the Deeks thing, I'm with the reviewer--so totally high school, I could vomit. Find someone attractive to fight over. BTW, CBS moved the show to Mondays at 10:00 next season.
What happened to "Friends with Better Lives"? Was that canceled?
"How did Wo Fat know about Ian and where to find him and how did he arrive at just the right time?" Y'know...this was a HUGE plot hole for me when I viewed the episode, but some folks postulating that WoFat and Wright could have been in it together kinda makes sense; WoFat would have needed the money to keep on the run. However, I don't think Wright's death was staged; WoFat doesn't leave loose ends.
