“The Big Bang Theory” (CBS)
Since sharing their first kiss this season, Bialik’s Amy and Jim Parson’s Sheldon have increasingly veered toward behaving like a “normal” couple. In “The Indecision Amalgamation,” Amy, always patient and understanding, becomes increasingly annoyed at Sheldon’s inability to choose which video gaming system to purchase. This dithering runs through the whole episode, including a romantic dinner, where Bialik even finds comedy in demanding, “Pass the butter!” Great acting is often reacting, and Bialik is at her best playing off Parson’s mania. This includes a highlight of the episode as Sheldon continues to discuss his options — even during a good-night kiss.
