  • Sheldon constructs a lie that gets out of hand - and I mean 'constructs'

    7.1
    Sheldon is a great character although when he loses touch with reality as much as he does in this episode it can be quite frustrating for the viewer. It all starts when Leonard lies to Penny about going to a conference just so he doesn't have to hear her sing (badly out of tune) in a local production of Rent. Sheldon thinks Penny, if she did her research (yeah right), would suss the lie so he creates one of his own about helping a cousin who snorts paint thinner, which starts to get outta hand.

    One thing that comes good from this is introducing the lab assistant who Sheldon enlists to play his Cousin Leopald. I hope this character appears again on a semi-regular basis because he was really funny and a great foil for Sheldon even more so than Leonard. Speaking of foils for other characters what happened to Leonard's foil Leslie, the character benefited from her presence.
