Katey Sagal is cute casting for Penny's mother. And I'm glad they were able to get Keith Carradine back as well.

Spoiler tags are only useful if you first warn about what show you're about to spoil, and then put the piece of information that spoils the show within the tags - you did the opposite. I had no idea what you were talking about until I expanded the tab - and then it immediately spoiled the show when I read it.

I didn't finish all of last season yet but caught the premiere. One of the better episodes I've seen in a while. Solid laughs all throughout.

Jack McBrayer can play an NBC Page well, but I don't really buy him as a meth head.

Yeah, it's really weird casting - particularly since McBrayer is playing him more or less the same way he played Kenneth.

I hated Season 9 and since the premiere was a by product of it, this episode didn't do anything for me. There were too many characters and storylines for me to give a shit.

Episode 2 hopefully starts fresh but if it continues to slide down the way Season 9 was, I hope this is the last season.

After all these years of building up Penny's meth head brother, McBrayer was a complete head scratching miscast.

Katey Sagal is always great though and I loved her as Penny's mom.

Re: The Big Bang Theory (CBS) -- Season 10 Thread -- premieres 9/19/16

The most exciting guest star was seeing Dean Norris as the Air Force guy. Honestly, I hope all the parents and in-laws aren't going to be hanging around all season long. That's not why people tune into this show.

I mean, for heaven's sake...what did Mayim Bialik get in this episode? Like THREE lines? The only part I found really funny was Melissa Rauch getting on everyone's case about the snarky remarks at the wedding. Otherwise, a pretty dismissible episode.

Re: The Big Bang Theory (CBS) -- Season 10 Thread -- premieres 9/19/16

Really interesting to see the History of SitComs in the casting of this show:

Married With Children, Roseanne, Bob Newhart Show, Taxi, Blossom, Cybil

Good stuff.

That being said, this was a weird ep, and the casting was way off for Penny's family.

I do like Leonards parents casting tho, those were dead on.

Same here, all the extended family was a bit of a let down.

Should've hired David Faustino as meth-head bro and let the audience infer that Penny is alt-universe Kelly Bundy

Loved the casting for the additional family members except for the brother. Terrible fit for the story they created for him. Wonder if they will ever do a flashback with Sheldon's dad?

Looking forward to the invention story line given the casting for the Air Force officer.

They were obviously going for the opposite of what you would expect, but it just didn't work.

It looks like they might be interested in spin-offs. Why else would they have so many new characters? TV shows way back in the past would do this.

I agree. After all of the years of Penny talking about her meth head brother being in jail, I thought we would see a sloppy, messed up stoner type of guy, not some goofy grinning country bumpkin.

I loved the casting of JM as the meth head brother very against type and it worked fine for me.

also thought it was a really funny ep especially compared to last season.

Same. I liked the casting. It was Katy Segal that seemed out of place to me.

I usually enjoy Leonard's and Sheldon's moms. I always look forward to episodes with them, but I have to admit this one disappointed. Penny's family was a huge letdown too.

I thought McBrayer as the meth head brother worked. Given how Penny's character is (or I guess was more in earlier seasons) I wasn't expecting the show to have a dark burnout type character for her brother. Him being a dumb Midwestern guy that got involved with meth made sense to me.

Katy played Kaley's mom on 8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter, so I think it's rather nifty casting.

I liked Sheldon trying to keep quiet, even if it was predictable and cheap laughs with the engineer and MIT bits. I also liked the Bernadette stuff with Amy and the happy meal.
