Well, when your greatest claim to fame is being the earliest living man to walk on the surface of the moon, what else are you going to do? The last few years have seen a wealth of Hollywood appearances for legendary astronaut Buzz Aldrin, popping up in everything from '30 Rock' to 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon,' but will an upcoming appearance on 'The Big Bang Theory' season 6 prove to be the final frontier?
The Big Bang Theory
Sheesh, cut the guy a break, eh? While earlier today we learned of yet another out-of-this-world headache that Howard Wolowitz would face during his time up in outer space, it seems even back on Earth the challenges are never ending for 'The Big Bang Theory' character. In spite of his many efforts to distance himself from his mother over the years, what happens when she finds a new man of her own? And one with a face chewed off by hyenas, at that? Okay, we might be exaggerating a bit.
Let 'The Big Bang Theory' stand as proof, even from the deep dark recesses of outer space, there really is no way to escape an angry woman. Though everyone's favorite CBS nerd comedy won't return for another week, entering into a stiff Thursday competition that includes 'The Office' and 'Glee,' the eye has issued yet another clip from season premiere episode "The Date Night Variable." Last time, we saw Howard struggling to deal with his mother from afar, but who now is giving him a hard time from the confines of Earth?
Who wants to wait a full week for fresh footage of 'The Big Bang Theory' season 6 premiere "The Date Night Variable," when we've go a sneak peek clip right here? After all, it isn't every sitcom that plausibly gets to go to outer space, so why not enjoy it? And just because Howard Wolowitz is up in space, doesn't mean that he'll be any further away from the domineering influence of his mother! Will he successfully man up and move out?
Though most sitcoms with a bit of will they/won't they inevitably find some contrived excuse to get its lead characters together, every so often one accepts when to back off. In the case of 'The Big Bang Theory,' leads Leonard and Penny never worked perfectly as a couple, allowing the writers some flexibility in which idea to play with. But with things getting increasingly awkward in Leonard and Penny 2.0, might the latest guest star be the straw that applied so much physical pressure it severed the camel's spinal column?
Normally, one would think the moment a TV series goes to space, they've officially jumped the shark. Thankfully in the case of 'The Big Bang Theory,' space is par for the course of physicists and engineers! Soon the fall TV season will return from orbit bringing with it all-new episodes of your favorite series, including everyone's favorite nerdly sitcom. But as the first promo shows, could going to space end in disaster? What other relationships might be orbiting doom?
As most fans of 'The Big Bang Theory' well know, the show hit its creative stride by balancing the scales a bit and bringing its ladies to full series regular status. Suddenly it wasn't all about the male geeks, but rather attention given to Mayim Bialik, Kaley Cuoco, Sara Gilbert and Melissa Rauch as well. Now, as 'The Big Bang Theory' breaks orbit by heading into its sixth season, the show will add yet another character to regular status, but who from the group receives the honor?
Never fear, fans of 'The Big Bang Theory' anxiously awaiting the show's sixth season. A little applied physics never hurt anybody, at least seriously enough to delay taping. Well, actually applied physics could kill any number of people based on its principles alone, but not today! Despite a (reportedly) gruesome car crash, actress Mayim Bialik will live to hold Sheldon Cooper's hand once more. But did she leave a piece of herself behind?
Earlier today, we saw a surprising article that detailed the current state of viewers for Sunday night cable series, some of which hardly seemed like they could be true. And yet, for as critically adored as series like 'Breaking Bad' may be, it just isn't where the big bucks are. A new list of TV's most paid stars that came out today will equally shock you, particularly when your salary is less than that of a monkey. Enjoy!
