    Well, despite the continuous tendency to "recycle jokes" (obvious similarities to S2/E6 and jokes from S3/E18) this episode was funny average. Not something people will necessarily remember for anything groundbreaking, but still alright.

    Seen from the angle that the first two episodes of the season turned out to have among the weakest plots however this episode was a major improvement.

    What still bothers me is the trend to relationship issues. That, based on the initial nerdiness of the show, somehow will never really fit into it.

    Making the growing "relationship influx" (could be a good title for a new episode :-) work will be a tough to impossible task for the writers. Pursuing the endeavour will thus most likely lead to the destruction of the initial target audience...
