'The Big Bang Theory' Season 4, Episode 13 Recap

by Oliver Miller, posted Jan 21st 2011 7:05AM

'The Big Bang Theory'['The Big Bang Theory' - 'The Love Car Displacement']

O-kaaaay then. There are episodes of sitcoms, and then there are episodes of sitcoms. And then there was this latest episode of 'The Big Bang Theory.'

Just to make it clear before we delve a little bit, I like 'The Big Bang Theory,' I really do. But this episode seemed ... odd. And much like the episode before it, it seemed to hang upon the thinnest of plot threads.

Here was the set-up for the episode: All the characters have to go to a science convention, including Penny, who didn't really want to go, but who had to be dragged along. Because by going to the the convention, she'd also get to go to a spa. Because otherwise, if Penny wasn't in it, it wouldn't really be a normal episode of the show, y'know?

Rick Fox on Competing with Wolowitz on Tonight's 'Big Bang Theory'

Rick Fox, Melissa Rauch and Simon Helberg on 'The Big Bang Theory' on CBSIf you're a fan of 'The Big Bang Theory,' you know how much of a struggle it's been for smarmy, velour-clad engineer Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) to land a regular girlfriend. If you could think of someone who is the complete opposite of Wolowitz in every way, he'd probably look a lot like former NBA star Rick Fox. Now imagine that man being the former boyfriend of Wolowitz's current squeeze, Bernadette (Melissa Rauch). Comedy gold, right?

We'll find out tonight at 8PM ET on CBS, when the gang goes to a conference and Bernadette runs into Fox, playing a professor named Glenn who's there to do a lecute on global warming. Exepect a lot of jokes about height, clothes, relative handsomeness, and a whole lot of ribbing that's not going to reflect well on Howard at all.

I spoke to Fox yesterday about the part, about whether he feels he's becoming more known for his acting than his playing career, sharing a 'Dancing With The Stars' stage with Bristol Palin, and how he feels about his ex-wife, Vanessa Williams, playing the wife of an ex-athlete on 'Desperate Housewives.'

Rick Fox and Cheryl BurkeFor the second week in a row (third if you thought Florence Henderson was robbed, which -- let's face it, she was), there's been another shocking elimination on 'Dancing With the Stars.'

Former pro basketball star Rick Fox and partner Cheryl Burke were sent home despite having higher scores (61) than other "in jeopardy" duos actor Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer (59) and teen activist Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas (57.)

"This is the most shocking elimination I've had in 10 seasons," Burke said after the show. "It shows you that nobody's safe and you have to vote. Rick did the best he could. It was our best night. Better to go out on top."

Kimmel Asks Rick Fox Whether 'Dancing' Really Is Harder Than the NBA (VIDEO)

Rick Fox Talks 'Dancing' on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Despite having just achieved his best scores yet (including a 10), Rick Fox was the surprise elimination from week 7 of 'Dancing With the Stars.' The former pro basketball player and partner Cheryl Burke talked about the experience on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC).

After Jimmy Kimmel chided him for crying on national television, the host noted, "You said that this is harder than Game 7 of an NBA final? ... First of all, I don't think you've been in a Game 7, right?"

Right. Technically, Fox has only gotten as far as the Western Conference finals. But "I prepared for that," he explained. Concerning 'Dancing,' "I had no previous dance experience ... You don't know how to dance, and you have to learn it really quickly and perform it in front of America four days later."

Kimmel then chatted with Burke about dancing with the "freakishly tall" (6-foot-7) Fox.

Plus, we spoke about her satisfaction with the end of 'Dollhouse' (season 2 now on DVD and Blu-ray) and whether she'll ever work with creator Joss Whedon again.

Rick Fox Talks About His 'Dancing With the Stars' MustacheThis week on 'Dancing With the Stars,' Rick Fox danced the tango with partner Cheryl Burke ... while sporting a mustache. Oddly, Fox didn't have a mustache the week before, and he didn't have one the next day. So where did it come from?

On 'The Tonight Show' (11:35PM ET on NBC), Fox explained everything. He also tried on a new fake mustache, one he claimed was made from his chest hair. But before we get to the fake one, what was the deal with the 'DWTS' one?

On the Scene: Will Florence Henderson Dance to the 'Brady Bunch' Theme on 'DWTS'?

by Michael Maloney, posted Oct 12th 2010 1:00PM
Florence Henderson on 'Dancing With the Stars'More about this week's performance show of 'Dancing With the Stars' in a bit, but here's a great reason to already get excited about next week's performances: The stars and their dancing pro partners will be performing routines to hit TV show theme songs.

A few couples revealed what song they'll be dancing to on the post-show press line, but it's up in the air if the most natural choice, Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas twirling to the theme song from 'The Brady Bunch,' is going to happen. First, the duo has to survive tonight's elimination show. Second, the song needs to go through certain legal clearances so it can be used on the show.

Henderson told TV Squad, "We're hoping [we dance to 'The Brady Bunch' theme]. I can't imagine that they would not [clear it.]" Of course, as her partner, Ballas, pointed out, "But first, we have to get saved."

Dancing With the Stars Cast
The first night jitters are officially out of the way. Twelve stars and their celebrity pro partners took to the dance floor and performed either a Cha-Cha or a Viennese Waltz on the 'Dancing With the Stars' season 11 opening night show. Actress Jennifer Grey, singer Brandy Norwood and athletes Rick Fox and Kurt Warner performed well -- as expected -- but the surprise of the night was teen actor Kyle Massey, who brought to mind a young Warren Sapp (Kym Johnson's season 7 partner) when he performed a dynamite dance with Lacey Schwimmer.

TV Squad was on the post-show press line to get reactions from all 24 participants. For one unlucky couple, alas, it's their second-to-last interview, because tonight one duo is going home.

Well that episode was out there. It brought back some old faces, introduced a few new ones, and split off into two wildly different tangents. On one side we saw a new side of Lucy as she aimed to bring down a past Dirt Now target while at the same time we saw Don placed in a situation that would have bee much more amusing had he stopped taking his medication.
