'The Big Bang Theory' Takes on "The Barbarian Sublimation" Tonight
'The Big Bang Theory' Takes on "The Barbarian Sublimation" Tonight
Last week on CBS’ The Big Bang Theory, we saw Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) end their relationship, while Leslie Winkle (Sarah Gilbert) made a move on Leonard and proposed to revisit their relationship.  Leonard on the other hand, sent Sheldon (Jim Parsons) out of the apartment so that he could have some private time with Leslie, whom Sheldon doesn’t like.  Penny returned in time to see Leonard and Leslie and they both fueled the fire of jealousy by making out with their respective partners.

Tonight on The Big Bang Theory, antics ensue as Sheldon introduces Penny to online gaming.

Created and executively produced by Chuck Lorre and Billy Prady, The Big Bang Theory follows two exceptionally smart physicists Leonard and Sheldon, who live across the hall from blonde bombshell Penny.  The show is one of today’s most successful sitcoms and stars Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco.

Hailing from Houston, Texas, the 35-year-old Parsons says that he is often compared to David Hyde Pierce, the face behind Frasier’s Niles Crane.  The comedian said it was a compliment which sparked his interest in the sitcom, which reruns he began watching soon thereafter.

"I'm kind of thrilled when people do compare us. I'm fine with that," Parsons said.  "He's hysterical.  I never purposely tried to emulate him, but maybe there is something innately similar in how we talk or how we move."

Additionally, he says that he would like to work with Pierce one day, given that they might have good on-screen chemistry.  "I'd love to play his relative in something.  If there's some sort of uncontrollable similarity, let's use it in some way."

As for the success of The Big Bang Theory, Parsons has only one thing to say, "The height of TV compliments, I think, is when somebody says they like to eat dinner while watching our show.  It doesn’t get much better than that."

Catch “The Barbarian Sublimation” tonight on CBS’ The Big Bang Theory at 8pm.
