  • This episode was well written and well played. And so funny. Spoilers inside

    I think that this episode can represent perfectly everything that this show has to offer. The nerd/geek stereotype is well played and so funny but never offensive and the natural comedy coming out from the clashes between the "beauty and geek" different realities is very funny. Sheldon adds something more to this mix, making the show one of the best new comedies since scrubs first aired. In this episode we see something that everyone was expecting: penny and leonard kissing. The authors, imo, played it very well blaming it on the drunkeness of penny, making it acceptable. The rest of the episode is a lot of first class comedy. I hope everyone enjoyed it as I did.
