Who was the Episode MVP ?

No results found.
  • TBBT got off track!

    I said it before and will say it again: This show used to be great, hot and innovative. Now it was turned into mediocre, yawn boring mainstream.

    Predictable, utterly flat jokes often focusing on ***phobia. Two sidekicks turned into main cast with no clear addition to the comedian character of the show. Main characters that are shifting their formerly interestingly nerdish behavior to boring emotional nonsense.

    I cannot get rid of the thought that TBBT is toast in its recent shape...moreless
  • Ran Together

    I ran the first episode and the second one together when I reviewed #1. But, the estrogen bit was hysterical. I laughed so hard I cried when Raj and Howard were feeling each others breasts, the look on Bernadette's face was priceless. And the coupon for Vagisil from Sheldon to Penny to Howard was a hoot! As I said before, welcome back my friends I have sorely missed you.
  • a very small bang

    not the worst, but damn close. started off okay and quickly degenerated into ?What Now? Writers Summer hangover?
  • WTF happened?

    Episode 2, season 7 - Worst episode EVER. That scene with Raj and Howard was just plain embarrassing. If THAT was the best the writers could do, then it's finally time to call it quits.

  • Sinking lower....

    Just awful. Was hoping they could turn it around quickly but this episode was just embarrassing. The breast scene was just idiotic and subsequently not funny. And trying to say that Sheldon would pay $200 for a squirtgun is just insulting to my intelligence. Plus isn't Stuart supposed to be a friend? Why would he massively rip off a friend? Again just not funny because the whole stituation was implausible.

    Not a shred of intelligent writing in 2 shows to start the season. Something is definitely wrong here.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof (Continuity): When Bernadette asks Howard if he wants some brownies, it is very clear that they have nuts in them. Howard is highly allergic to nuts (as seen in The Peanut Reaction); why would Bernadette make them with nuts if she knew Howard was highly allergic?

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Leonard: So am I driving you to work or are you still mad at me?
      Sheldon: I'd like a ride. Assuming you actually do take me to work.
      Leonard: Where do you think I would take you?
      Sheldon: Who knows? You said you'd be home yesterday, but came home three days ago. You say you're taking me to work, but for all I know I'll end up in a deserted amusement park, or a cornfield maze or a back alley dog fight. You tell me.
      Leonard: I'm going to work. You can come if you want.
      Sheldon: OK. By the way you have something on your shirt.
      Leonard: No, I don't.
      Sheldon: Hurts, doesn't it? You know I find myself wondering if anything you every told me is true.
      Leonard: I didn't make it back. The ship sank. I'm in hell.
      Sheldon: You say you're from New Jersey, but how can I believe you.
      Leonard: Why would anybody claim to be from New Jersey, if they weren't?

      Sheldon: All right, I'll give you that one.

    • Amy: Sheldon. You're fights with Leonard. Penny's got nothing to do...
      Sheldon: Careful Amy. The friend of my enemy's girlfriend is my enemy.
      Amy: Really?
      Sheldon: Yes. You're either with me or against me.
      Amy: Yes. You're either with me or against me.
      Sheldon: Yes. You're either with me or against me.
