Just watched the first of series eleven ... very good ;
Yes, I saw it last night. I recorded it on monday
Funny how Howard has ended up with a lady who sounds like his mum ...
And she's pregnant again!
It wasn't me, honest it wasn't ... I think Sheldon's Mum has a lot in common with some of our compatriots ...
Ha ha...she's something but Sheldon loves her spaghetti with the hot dog slices.
Think there's a line by Sheldon where he says, I love you Mom but everything you say, do and think embarrasses me.
I watch reruns to fall asleep so I know almost every line in the last 10 seasons.
Sing this to fall asleep ;
Deborah "Debbie" Melvina Wolowitz (most often known and credited as Mrs. Wolowitz) was the mother of Howard Wolowitz and the mother-in-law of Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz. Howard always simply calls her "Ma" (usually while screaming). The name "Debbie" was revealed in the Season 7 finale "The Status Quo Combustion" by Stuart (and may or may not be a pet name); up until that point, she had only been referred to as "Mrs. Wolowitz." Despite her over-controlling, loud, over-protective, sometime desperate ways, she is not only nice and caring, but is also a loving motherly figure to both her son and his friends.
The on-going joke or running gag in the series is that we never saw her face; she made her presence known by her loud and obnoxious New Jersey-accented voice (provided by the late Carol Ann Susi). There have been quick glimpses of her; however, in Season 5's "The Countdown Reflection," the overhead view of the rooftop Wolowitz wedding ceremony shows her sitting off to the side in a pink dress. In Season 6's "The Spoiler Alert Segmentation," she can be seen (from the neck down) walking past the open kitchen door while Rajesh Koothrappali sits at the dining room table, and the tag scene in that same episode shows her arms pulling Raj back into the house through an open window as he was trying to escape.
She also died in real life I think about a year ago or maybe more.
Edit: just saw you mentioned that...
In "The Comic Book Store Regeneration," the gang is back at Leonard and Sheldon's apartment. The gang reflects on Debbie's passing. Stuart can't believe she's gone, and will always be grateful to her for taking him in in his time of need, as he would have been homeless otherwise. Raj is going to miss her, and reflects on how she made him feel welcome when he first came to America (even though she thought that Raj was the gardener the first few years). Penny reflects on how Mrs. Wolowitz had told her that she was too skinny and should eat more. Amy remarks that she had said the same thing to her, and Penny tells Amy not to take this moment from her. Sheldon didn't like the way that she yelled, but will miss it. Leonard offered to yell at him if he wanted, but Sheldon said it just wouldn't be the same. Leonard offers to make a toast with the rest of the gang to honor Mrs. Wolowitz, saying she was a great mother to all of them (which doubled as a toast by the cast to their own "mother," the late Carol Ann Susi).
Yes, Ive seen that episode quite a few times ...in fact Ive seen them all a few times.
On most nights, it runs on TBS for a few hours...the reruns and thats what I turn on when I go to bed. Since I know the scenes so well I can close my eyes and just drift off to sleep listening to the dialogue.
On the nights it's not on, I go to my DVR recorded ones and let them loop til I wake up at some point and turn the TV off.
They're like family in a way...I find comfort in watching them.
Used to do the same with Friends and The Golden Girls.
Sadly, TBS is in the 200 channel package at Direct TV so I'm paying mucho $ to just have a crutch at bedtime.
I have to find a better way, lol.
Put all the series onto a laptop and run them at bed time ...
I only have an iPad and I did subscribe to CBS for awhile but it was glitchy.
I have a year to go on my contract anyway, so maybe in a year I'll find another comfort show to fall asleep.
I can't watch it or any of those shows that use canned laughter and bring it up every time someone farts!
I don't even notice, I'm good at tuning things out.
I am very surprised that this series has continued as long as it has. While I liked it, I figured it would attract more of a niche audience.
Guess it has universal appeal but I don't know why. Even when some of the actors/actresses came out against Trump in tweets I still love them.
Guess, just like my family, which is a mixture of liberal and conservative I love them anyway.
Also, I'm more in the Golden Girls generation but this still appeals to me.
