  • minimal excitation season finale

    A pretty fair episode that picks up where the staircase implementation left off. Leonard is heartbroken over Penny yet tries to find ways to get back with her. Penny has moved on essentially yet finds it hard to go back to dating dumb jocks. Raj and Howard conspire to get Sheldon a date on an online dating site while Sheldon merely plays observer to the events that unfold.
    In its defense, the episode has quite a few good laughs. Wolowitz and Raj provided a strong comic element with their constant narrative. Penny's boyfriend was pretty funny as the dumb jock.
    It would seem the weakest link in the chain was Penny and Leonard. Their interactions do little to further the plot except maybe throw Leonard from a state of sadness to a state of despair. There is too little development in any form. Sheldon was convincing as observer in these tales. he views all and plays no part till finally he is forced to meet his online match via a disgusting sock. And the ending is pretty nice, also showcasing how much raj and Wolowitz have come to understand Sheldon over their years together. Definitely watchable.
