In the spirit of Mother’s Day, it seems fitting to re-watch a sweet mother-son moment from The Big Bang Theory’s season 11 finale last Thursday night.
Once again, well done Big Bang Theory.
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
P.S. I love you, Mom.
FYI – If you have not seen the latest episode of The Big Bang Theory, watch the show before watching the deleted scene below.
After that special Big Bang Theory season 11 finale last night, it’s time to let everything sink in. All of the cameos, the story, surprises, plus the fact that this wonderful sitcom has been on the air for 11 seasons. Will season 12 be the final year? The answer is very likely yes. But we’re getting way ahead of ourselves with that right now.
Right now–as in right now–watch a very sweet deleted scene from last night’s episode. Trust me. The showrunners have been promoting this moment throughout today for fans everywhere to check out. And for good reason.
Few other sitcoms these days pull the heartstrings quite like The Big Bang Theory.
Congratulations Amy & Sheldon (ShAmy) in the fictional world and, once again, RIP Stephen Hawking in the real world. At least for a brief moment in time, those two worlds were joined together.
The greatest living mind in the
world universe of science has died.
Renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking died today at the incredible age of 76 in Cambridge, England. And his long life was incredible because he was not given much time to live following an unlikely diagnosis in his early 20s with a rare form of motor neurone disease. This restricted Mr. Hawking to a wheelchair and a devastating, paralyzing state. Despite these immense challenges, Professor Hawking was a towering figure in the scientific community, as well as in the world of pop-culture. Perhaps it was the latter that enlightened young minds who wouldn’t have come across the literary classic (for advanced minds) A Brief History of Time on their own volition to study and appreciate the profound work and insights of the man, who some have said, was the smartest person since Albert Einstein.
As someone who appreciates the visionary insights and contributions of Professor Hawking, what impresses me in equal measure was how he lived all these years with a tragic disease. The kind of pain he experienced is unimaginable. And yet, he lived with an inspiring spirit and an infinitely curious mind.
He also had a wonderful sense of humor.
Truly the greatest guest star in the history of The Big Bang Theory.
RIP Stephen Hawking.
Nicolas Cage needs to be a surprise guest star on The Big Bang Theory.
And by surprise, I mean a total surprise for the audience and
Howard Wolowitz Simon Helberg. That way, Mr. Helberg’s castmates, who know his impression skills, would step aside and shine the brightest spotlight on these two actors taking center stage sitcom-style for a truly epic showdown of comedic talents starring Nicolas Cage and…Nicolas Cage.
This comedic duel would redefine the real Nicolas Cage’s famous 1997 film Face/Off.
Don’t believe that the world needs this specific pairing on primetime television?
Here’s a sample of Mr. Helberg’s work involving Nicolas Cage, as well as a couple other bonus impressions.
At some point during the upcoming season, Chuck Lorre should call Nicolas Cage, Billy Baldwin and Ben Stiller for an unforgettable “Sweeps Week” event.
And, if approached the right way, this golden TV moment could be as simple as A-B-C…
all the way to Z.
