The Big Bang
Anyone who's been following CBS' powerhouse The Big Bang Theory — and judging by the ratings, that's just about everyone — knows what a hard time Sheldon (Jim Parsons) has when it comes to deciphering the formula of personal gift-giving. (A series highlight was his reaction to Penny's gift of a napkin used by THE Leonard Nimoy.) His dilemma...
TIME FOR THE BIG BANG?
The January 31 episode of CBS' The Big Bang Theory (People's Choice winner for Favorite Network TV Comedy) finds Penny asking virginal Sheldon (Jim Parsons) the million-dollar question: Would he ever consider having sex with Amy (Mayim Bialik)? "And he...

Question: I appreciate how you are one of the few critics who recognizes how good a family sitcom The Middle is. I'm not American, but I can so relate to the Heck family, and they really hit it right out of the park with the family dynamics. Frankie and Mike's 20th anniversary was another terrific episode, and I want to give kudos to Atticus Shaffer's performance when Brick told Axl why books are so important. Strong words that captured a lot from the joys of reading to getting to know the struggles of a kid who's socially inept. I'm happy this show lasted this long and will reach 100 episodes by next season. Now that the show has enough episodes for syndication, do you think The Middle has a chance to grow even more in the ratings? The current ratings are fine and actually lives to up its title, as it's right smack in the middle of the ratings race, not a blockbuster but a self-starter that does solid numbers. But the show is just so good, so I really hope more people will discover it eventually. — Jecoup

Loved the Castle premiere, but what was Castle doing with a half-naked woman in the promos for the next episode? —
ADAM: As creator Andrew W. Marlowe already teased, that encounter is a consequence of Castle pretending to be single in order to keep his relationship with Beckett a secret from their co-workers. But that doesn't mean infidelity won't be an issue. An upcoming case will implicate Castle in the murder of an ex. "It makes everybody question: How well do we actually know this guy?" Marlowe says. But it gets worse: "Castle may have been having an affair with her at the same time he was dating Beckett," he teases. "That goes to the heart of all of Beckett's insecurities."
