One of our longest episodes ever, packed with news and excitement!

  • Big Bang will end with a 2-part series finale
  • Last week the cast and crew surprised everyone with their third and final flash mob!
  • The two of us were lucky enough to be at the taping with the flash mob - and meet Johnny afterwards! -  and we talk about our experience that night
  • Is Sheldon acting out-of-character trying to get Zack's attention? Did the writers address our concerns with the donation storyline? What does it really mean to leave part of yourself behind? And why was that cereal scene so long? All part of our episode discussion!

There's only 10 episodes left, and we're not ready.

  • Our episode discussion includes loving on Stuart and Denise, our pitch for the series finale, permit questions, and more!
  • We answer a listener question - who do we think will have the last line in the finale? And a listener comment sparks a comparison between the donation story line and the HIMYM finale.

Go Karen!

Big Bang Buzzcast Episode 171: The Propagation Proposition

Big Bang Theory, we still love you, but you've got a lot of explaining to do.
  • The best thing about this episode? Kaley and Johnny's Titanic photo, clearly.
  • Was this supposed to be a weird compromise of Leonard's desire to have kids? What's really his motivation here? Why is Penny being presented in the wrong? And in this incredibly complicated situation, why is Sheldon the only one asking the important questions??
  • Shouldn't Raj and Anu talk about the situation with her ex? Do we see any kind of spark between them? Is Raj finally making some long-overdue progress?

Big Bang Buzzcast Episode 169: The Tesla Recoil

We weren't able to match up our schedules this past week to record an episode on The Paintball Scattering - and since that's the one we saw taped together in December, we really want to do that podcast together. So instead of one of us bringing you a solo episode, here's one from our season 11 backlog!

We'll be back soon to talk about the latest for season 12, with season 11 episodes scattered in among the new ones. Enjoy!
  • Did Amy really think Sheldon was showing empathy? When are high fives acceptable in bed? Was Ruchi too harsh on Raj? This plus more in our episode discussion - including some surprising emotion about Dumbo...
