In this second episode of the season premiere, Sheldon is offered a new job within the university. He can study dark matter, but the only condition is that he teaches a class. He reluctantly accepts, but for better or worse, no one signs up. His reputation as a ‘difficult character’ has spread widely around campus and truth is he doesn’t really seem to care that much, either.

His friends however, do care a lot. Howard offers to sign up for Sheldon’s class. Sheldon takes this as an opportunity to ridicule his friend in every possible intellectual way. Although Sheldon is extremely smart, Howard is not ready to give up the fight so easily, so if Sheldon was not ready to take teaching seriously, neither was Howie when it came to studying. Bad teacher vs Bad student was about to start..

Unfortunately for Howard, he got reported to HR by none other than his dear friend/teacher Sheldon… Bold move huh?

On the girl’s side, Penny and Bernie are having some issues. Since Bernadette helped Penny find the new job, she’s feeling entitled to make sure she doesn’t screw it up. Penny is sick of all the patronising,  and she decides to bitch about it with Amy. Clever as she is, Amy uses her friends argument to strengthen her own friendship with both of them. Eventually the girls fix their problems and Amy is no longer the ‘popular one’. Cue a sad Dr Farrah-Fowler.

The best part of the episode was how the guys started to answer random science questions and received chocolate bars in exchange. Although, the Creme Egg takes the biscuit.. or the creme…

The Big Bang Theory – Season 8 Episode 1 – The Locomotion Interruption

Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 14.21.31After a long trip by himself, Sheldon is finally ready to return to Pasadena! As it’s the norm, Leonard was summoned by his old friend to pick him up in a different state of course. This sudden phone call really got Amy angry and feeling left out, so she decided to go with Leonard and make the trip to pick up Sheldon.

Things are definitely a bit different amongst the group of friends. Penny has a new haircut, and a new job interview thanks to Bernadette. Howard is no longer looking after his mother, but Stewart is. This has him clearly upset, and thinks his old friend has taken over his role as a son. As they say, be careful what you wish for right?

Sheldon was a big box of surprises when he actually said he was ready to get down to business with Amy. Wooohoooooo! Get your tiara girl, ‘cos you’re about to be going for a ride on the Sheldon Train!
