'The Big Bang Theory' Season 4, Episode 16 Recap

['The Big Bang Theory' - 'The Cohabitation Formulation'] As we mentioned last time around, 'The Big Bang Theory' is at its best when it's subverting traditional sitcom expectations, not going along with them. But tonight's episode seemed content to throw down some of the hoariest sitcom tropes of all time -- the overbearing mother, the love triangle -- and then had nothing new to do with them....

'The Big Bang Theory' Season 4, Episode 15 Recap

['The Big Bang Theory' - 'The Benefactor Factor'] What a difference a week makes.

'The Big Bang Theory' Season 4, Episode 12 Recap

['The Big Bang Theory' - 'The Bus Pants Utilization'] In a way, Sheldon and Penny are kindred spirits on 'The Big Bang Theory.' They're both outcasts. He's too nerdy even for the group of nerds that he hangs out with; she's not considered nerdy enough. So it always seems appropriate when the pair are forced to spend time together, even though it's stressful for them both. Last time out, the...

'Undercovers' Series Finale: The Show Comes to an End -- Sort of (VIDEO)

Every story is a mystery story -- even if the tale itself doesn't involve clues or a crime. Whether it's a sitcom about mismatched roommates, a game show, or a reality show about people living in New Jersey, we still watch every TV program for the same reason: to find out what happens at the end. It's a natural human desire to learn what happens next. But this might be a problem where...
