    It's funny since it was making fun of me as a gamer.

    Last night's episode was pretty good. I didn't realize the guys had been drinking until Raj had been talking, but before that, I thought he was actually talking in front of women while sober!

    I knew from the outset that they'd been drinking because Raj specifically stated that he'd purchased low-carb beer (right before Leonard chided him to pick up his missing Y chromosome). Sheldon, of course, was the only one who wasn't drinking, but I could never see myself drinking Kool-Aid through a Red Vine. *blech!*

    When Sheldon entered the comicbook store I thought he was going to ask Stewart to go with Amy to the party.

    I really liked this episode, eventhough I'm one of the people who think the show's quality has declined.

    I thought this episode was pretty good. I wouldn't say it was one of the best of the season, but it was still entertaining.

    Raj yelling at everyone was funny, especially the line "But I'll still be the one to get a girlfriend after Sheldon Cooper" hahahaha.

    I think Sheldon and Amy may break up, either at the end of this season or next season, if Sheldon keeps acting like that, though.

    Overall, it was a decent episode, but certainly not the best/funniest.

    Does anyone know when the next episode airs? I think there is a hiatus until March 29th or something....

    What's up with the inconsistant scheduling?

    You can thank March Madness, aka NCAA basketball, for that.

    Raj was drinking. He had specifically mentioned purchasing low-carb beer.

    I really don't blame Sheldon. For starters, his big "introduction" to Amy's family was going to be... well... just about her WHOLE family.


    Personally I'd rather start small. The only up-side to going to this meeting is you MIGHT not be the center of attention (since it is some old woman's birthday), and with so many people talking to so many other people you PROBABLY wouldn't be put on the spot too much. Small chit-chat here and there, move onto other people/groups, etc.


    But since this is Amy we're talking about, her getting a BF might be a big deal and thus Sheldon WOULD become a center of attention.



    So you're talking about going to a big social event full of strangers, be put on the spot as Amy's BF (a big deal), be asked a lot of questions, etc. Throw in Sheldon's strange quirks (germo-phone, not liking crowds, etc) and it would be borderline hell.



    I'd STILL DO IT if I enjoyed the relationship, but in the back of my mind even I'd rather be playing video games than go through that.
