    So we finally get more to Penny's 'i wanna be an actor' aspiration, as she realizes after a failed interview that the 2 years she spent in LA have gone wasted, and after locking herself out of her apartment by stupidly using her car key in the door, she spends time in Leonard and Sheldon's apartment, when only Sheldon is home.

    Sheldon is playing 'Age of Conan' and it doesn't take him long to get Penny into it, but she gets addicted and this is where the laughs are highest, as we see Penny at a low point in her life, with Sheldon only trying to 'help' her as she constantly nags him for help.

    This is a fast-paced episode that will keep you laughing all the way though it, with only 1 weakness; It's a bit too fast paced, with the episode length of 22 minutes, it squeezes a lot in but ends abruptly, and you are left sitting there thinking 'That was over quick'. Over-all an amazing episode, and am looking forward to more like this.
