  • Sheldon introduces Penny into the world of online video gaming and creates a monster.

    By far, this episode blows the last two episodes of the season right out of the water with some good humor and great scenes.

    After having a hard day and being locked out of her appartment, Penny is introduced to online gaming by Sheldon. Soon, she becomes addictive the game and forgets everything else in the world. She constantly bugs Sheldon for information how to play the game, causing him to take action and get her a date so she can focus on something else and not bother him. After all his efforts, he does not succeed, but Penny finally comes to her senses after agreeing to go on an online date with Wolowitz.

    A great episode and it brings some great humor into the fray with Sheldon accidently getting a date with a gay guy and some funny words exchange between Sheldon and Penny that makes Leonard think those two are sleeping together. This is the best episode of the season and I hope the show can keep this pace.
