Not as good as the last episode, and this episode showed how important Kayley Cuoco is to the entire cast. Penny scenes were kept to a minimum and I'm not sure it was for the better. Sheldon is the best thing about this show, no doubt about it. But when looking back on this episode, Sheldon was the only good thing about it.
Sheldon is pretty much holding this show together and it became obvious here when the Leonard, Raj, and Howard interactions weren't that entertaining or funny for that matter. This episode did give us a few laughs though. The end was a little too predictable for my liking. Who else knew from the get go that they were going to ruin the kid's life? I know I did.
So overall not as superb as the past couple episodes, but it was still an entertaining watch.
