Tonight’s TV

Published January 5, 2017 by Lunapo

I know a lot of folks don’t like Big Bang Theory for a number of reasons. 

But tonight they did something so right. 

Tonight’s episode was a recap of all the characters’ holiday. Bernadette recently had a baby and they went over how she adjusted to being a new mom. As a comedy, they tried to make light of a tough situation and I think they did a pretty good job. Unlike a lot of other shows that I’ve seen, it wasn’t an immediate walk in the park (though it can be and was with Witchlette) and it was shown to continue over a number of days with seemingly no end in sight until suddenly…it ended. She figured out how to soothe and calm her baby…in an unrealistic comedic way, but that’s to be expected from a silly sitcom. 

The point is, they showed that there is a learning curve and there can be a stumbling block. That many new moms struggle with this huge life change that, much as it is a blessing, could also be a trial. Sheldon even quoted the 80% statistic for baby blues. 

Thank you, BBT, for helping to break the stigma.
