  • James Earl Jones

    8.0
    Seriously, I loved this episode, but I could have sworn JEJ was drunk. The way he talked, the ice came across as totally drunk.

    I loved Carrie Fisher.

    The girls conversation about not feeling grown up was a nice idea.
  • I wonder where this should make me laugh.

    Sorry guys but I don't get it. Where was this episode supposed to be particularly funny? Despite JEJ being in it, there was nothing particularly funny about it.



    There used to be short but funny moments with Wil Wheaton, Lamar Burton, Brent Spiner and Charly Sheen. That long appearance of Mr. James Earl Jones sure was a highlight but sadly not very funny.



    To me it seems that for 1.5 seasons already the writer produce less and less.moreless
  • Cry me a river... such a low score for a perfect episode

    While the girls didn't do a whole lot for me this ep, penny made me laugh a few times, which she usually doesn't. However it was Sheldons story that made me laugh, James Earl Jones was hilarious! and the way he actually bonded with Sheldon instead of finding him a creep, completely awesome! in the end it was sheldon who was creeped out, i really hope to see James continue through the next episode or soon for when they go to comic-con with him. great stuff keep it coming.



    BTW, i just raised the score from 7.9 to 8 with my rating :Dmoreless
  • I love Star Wars too !!!

    8.5
    HIlarious episode with the guys at their nerdy best and the girls trying to be more adult.



    I'm really beginning to despair about what the reviewers on here are looking for in this series.



    The guys get girls? Hate! Hate! Hate!



    The guys get lives Hate! Hate Hate!



    They go back to being nerds. Hate! Hate! Hate!



    Really, can't you make your mind up what it is you want?



    Don't know about the rest of you but what I want is a show that makes me laugh and this one did it, in Spades.



    James Earl Jones obviously had a ball doing this show and his "bad boy" act was ridiculously funny. I was in stitches throughout, especially when they rang Carrie Fisher's doorbell and ran for it.



    Penny, In Loco Parentis, as Berny's mother was inspired, with both girls playing off against each other well.



    Possibly the funniest episode this season so far with belly laughs all round and even having watched it several times now, I still guffaw as if it was the first time.



    Bring it on writers, one happy viewer here.moreless
  • Early hopes and... disappointment

    5.5
    I had hope early, the start of the episode felt like classic TBBT. But no, an other fail. Sheldon's story was lame, and once again he was made childish. The girls' story wasn't good either, although the reflection on adulthood was a good idea and was good.

    The boys' story was good, and felt a bit more TBBT.
