Wrapping Up The Big Bang Theory

Season 3 of The Big Bang Theory has wrapped up for the season, and we are basically left with the status quo. Sheldon is a kook, Leonard and Penny are not dating and Raj and Howard are fond of hi-jinks.

Wrapping Up The Pacific

Well, its over. Sledge and Lecke won the war in the Pacific and can go back home. While its true that our boys did personally bring Imperial Japan to its knees (Lecke with his whining and Sledge with his own brand of unhinged warfare), your connection has to last just a little longer while I recap and review Episodes Nine and Ten.

How long is this review going to be?

KK Tells You Your Opinion of Robin Hood

AK and I took in the new Robin Hood this past Sunday on a heavily chaperoned date. We had been anticipating its release since we first saw the trailers, and the film did not disappoint. Starring Russell Crowe as Robin Longstride (Robin of the Hood), the film takes the position of being sort of a prequel to the Robin Hood stories with which most of us are familiar.

Mrs. Amanda Recaps CRIMINAL MINDS (Episode 5x21 "Exit Wounds")

Once again, I'm late on my CM post.  To make up for it, two casting stories from my sister (plus hooray that the spinoff was picked up!):

The Penny Project: Catching Up

It has been an auspicious 10 days for the Penny Project, with the fund racking up 26 cents in places ranging from the bathroom at a Scheels to lowly alleys to the new Twins' stadium.

The lucre is pictured below.

Mrs. Amanda Recaps CRIMINAL MINDS (Episode 5x20 "A Thousand Words")

This post is a little late because we were celebrating Kyle's birthday last Wednesday!  Although I guess it comes just in time to get you amped up for this week's new ep.

Before we begin, a word from my beautiful sister, the Casting Associate on CM:

TV Crossover - Judy Greer and Basically Every Show on Television (THE BIG BANG THEORY)

Seriously, Judy Greer is in everything.  Click here to see some of her recent past performances. This week she's double-stuffing CBS, first on The Big Bang Theory and later on How I Met Your Mother.

Wanna know why she's always on TV?  Because she's hilarious.  On The Big Bang Theory, she played Dr. Elizabeth Plimpton, a genius horn dog with role playing desires.  After she beds Leonard, she does her best to wrangle a sexy four-way with Raj, Howard and Leonard...but only ends up with Raj after Leonard reminds them that "We'd be naked in front of each other."

This Is Your Opinion on the SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE (Betty White)

Thanks to an aggressive campaign on Facebook, Betty White found herself hosting Saturday Night Live this past weekend. To honour this occasion (and Mother's Day), the show brought back several luminaries including: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon, Rachel Dratch and Maya Rudolph. Sounds like this had the makings of a stellar episode, right? Well, wrong actually.

Penny Project Update

We have just returned from Minneapolis, and the Twin Cities did not disappoint the Penny Project. A single penny at Mall of America and a dime at the Eden Prairie AMC put another 11 cents into the coffers.
We are already down to 950, and just a few (hundred) more to go.

Great Moments in Penny Project History

May 6th is not really a noteworthy day, except for the fact that I have found 12 cents before 9:00am. Take that Army!

In two separate locations, about a mile apart, I managed to track down two nickels and two pennies (the nickels were in a puddle) and put a big dent in the 1000 pennies we need to find.

Mrs. Amanda Recaps THE PACIFIC (Episode 8, "Iwo Jima")

As you know, I've been pretty down on The Pacific because frankly, up until last week, it sucked.  However, last week's ep was much better, and this week's episode was fantastic...but you had to watch all the way to the end to feel its impact.
