The first two episodes of Big Bang definitely did not disappoint. The awkward tension in the beginning of the show was absolutely perfect, but I have to admit I’m a little annoyed with Koothrappali’s character. His plot lines don’t interest me, and are irrelevant. What I’m interested in is Amy Farrah Fowler’s character: “A guest in my trundle bed and man at my door—I wish I could tell 13-year-old me it does get better!” Her Sheldon-esque personality provides the quick wit that we usually see from Sheldon Cooper’s character. As always, Sheldon Cooper shines. In the first episode, he led a sacrificial paintball battle, and in the second episode he is personally tormented by the hygiene of a chair Penny found on the street. The writers, Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, deserve a medal. His character leaves me in tears every time.
An interesting launch coincided with season five’s premiere. According to Hypable, Facebook has launched a card-game inspired by the one created by Sheldon called the Mystic Warlords of Ka’a. According to the site, “The Big Bang Theory: Mystic Warlords of Ka’a brings the characters’ favorite card game from the hit comedy to life in an all new digital collectible card game on Facebook. Fans can play with characters from the series, as well as challenge their friends in the in-depth and accessible gameplay. The game features two play modes: “Duel Mode,” a casual game providing quick and easy matches, and “Battle Mode,” where players explore the more strategic elements of the card game, battling it out and challenging their friends. Players can also collect and trade rare cards with one another.” I guess we’ll have to have our video game blogger Spencer try out the game and see if it’s any good!
