    Plenty to Like, Plenty to Dislike

    The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.

    All of these films share one commonality, that being a kind of emotional center that humanizes a cast of monsters.

    An old-fashioned movie made with new-fashioned finesse.

    This is easily the best new comedy show on TV. I loved Two and a Half Men because of the innuendo and raunch but I really like this show because it's sweet, and gentle and too cute for words. Sheldon should get an Emmy for his role but for sure Annie Potts deserves one for her "Meemaw". The similarities between the mother and daughter acting team of Laurie Metcalf and Zoe Perry is amazing; I love them both in their distinctive roles. For you perpetual complainers about the lack of "quality" or "wholesomeness" or "family values" on TV should be happy but alas you continue to complain. Okay, complain already but do continue watching.

    Love it, except too many stereotypes of "typical Texas families". The writers must think Texas is nothing but overweight Southern Baptists, no blacks, no Latinos, no Hindis or Vietnamese.. The United States of Hollywoodland" needs to burst out of their bubble and go see the rest of the country. An ethnic Vietnamese Catholic who is clueless about his faith, is too much of a stretch for me. Tan replies to Sheldon's question about what Catholics believe in and he says, "...we pray to Jesus, and Mary, and the guy in Rome with the big pointy hat." Sheesh! It's like watching a 1970s disaster movie with senior military officers having their uncut hair trying to escape from under their their caps, looking like Qaddafi.As for scenes, Texas state and FM highway signs, and Louisiana state highway signs, rural scenery, and the NASA visit, in road trip episode scenes all make it look pretty realistic. I have to wonder if some of the episodes were shot on location although obviously the high school and the subdivision and Radio Shack were on a back lot.

    There is more depth to this show than just prequel stylizing. I have laughed and teared-up. I have even pondered humanity and its failings. It gets my "10" hands down.

    On The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon has frequently talked about his life as a child in Texas. He always says they lived in a trailer, his dad was always drunk and his mom was a religious fanatic. This show has proven that none of that was true. Other than that, this show isn't too bad. It's much better than the last 5 seasons of Big Bang.
