The Big Bang Theory has finally reached the tipping point. They've assembled such a likable ensemble that the show's enjoyable again. The Big Bang Theory's somewhat trite writing aside, I enjoyed this episode.

If Katey Sagal's character had been even half as amazing as the woman is IRL, perhaps the initial episode would not have tanked as much. Seriously, what was it with the bumbling supposedly "anxiety-ridden" persona? It only came across as a really naggy housewife that ironically goes ignored by pretty much everyone. Even Sheldon's mother has been reduced to a trashy Jesus-loving redneck, and she used to be one of, if not my favourite guest character. On the other hand, I liked the character development between Leonard's parents; the whole five seconds it lasted.

I love Sheldon's Mother. She is a force to be reckoned with.
