      Love it,hllarious show, probably the best show ever made in a long time. I am so glad my little cousins can watch it with me!!!!!
    • anything above 8 says you've been paid off imo...

      sorry guys n gals but i thought this episode was at best 'watchable' story was lame, predictable and pretty obvious how it was going to end..

      only the torture amy puts sheldon through and penny telling leonard she loves him and is interested in him and his friends was reasons to watch it

      but everything else was lame...
    • Hey, I liked those shows too!!!

      This was a great episode and relatively benign with the naughtiness. And as written in another review it mainly involved three separate story lines, Amy and Sheldon, Penny and Leonard, and Lucy and Raj. I really enjoyed the beginning when Sheldon finds out that Alphas had been cancelled with the final episode a cliff hanger. I have to admit I was also let down when I read about the cancellation but then the way Sheldon carried on and the way it devolved into his closure problem was hugely funny. The work Amy did to try and cure this quirk was hilarious as well. Leonard trying to get Penny interested in his geek likes and her insecurity about not sharing them was fun too. And finally Raj trying to be manly for Lucy was very humorous. All in all a top of the line episode.moreless
    • Alphas!!
