“Big Bang Theory”: The bang is back, on St. Patrick’s Day

There’s welcome news in the CBS press bundle today — a fresh logline for The Big Bang Theory.”Bigbangtheoryfoursome

Frosh sitcom that showed so much promise, creatively and ratings-wise, prior to the strike interruption, returns March 17 with a seg dubbed “The Cooper-Hofstadter Polarization.” Story’s by co-creator Bill Prady and Stephen Engel, with the teleplay from the capable hands of co-creator Chuck Lorre, Lee Aronsohn and Dave Goetsch.

“When Sheldon and Leonard are invited to present their joint findings at a physics conference, Sheldon refuses, and Penny steps in to mediate … only deepening the rift between the two best friends.”

Sounds like fun. The guest cast list for this seg indicates that our nerdy heroes Sheldon and Leonard may meet their Asian doppelgangers (if not in looks then in spirit, perhaps). Thesp Talbott Chin is on board to play “Chinese Leonard”; Howard Chan will play “Chinese Sheldon.”

(Unfortunately, there’s no fresh art yet for the show on CBS’ press site, so here’s a pic featuring “Big Bang’s” fab four from an earlier seg. Left to right: Simon Helberg, Jim Parsons, Kunal Nayyar and Johnny Galecki. )
