  • Best Episode from Season 5

    Entering its 5th season, and hardly any recognition, Big Bang Theory for me has been largely under-appreciated and under-rated. Some object that the humor is very specific to a certain type of (geek/nerd) crowd, but i've found the humor relate-able. Although I've hated Penny, for a while, the cast is still somewhat like-able and created a decent amount of laughter. Themed episodes (halloween, xmas etc) are usually unusual. TBBT's Halloween episode last year was no exception. Quite witty, with a few guest appearances and most of all, my least favorite character of the show (yes, Priya, Raj's very hate-able, extremely-flat-acting, sister) gets axed, finally. Sheldon spends most of the show trying pull a successful prank one of the others boys but falls short every time and gets pranked in return. Leonard walks the thin line of being faithful during a long distance relation with Priya, ultimately loses both opportunities. The funniest moment of the episode comes towards the end when Leonard ends it with Priya and realizes he should've cheated on her as well. Sheldon picks this moment to finally get his revenge and scared the crap out of Leonard
