  • The show proves its quality once again. The Sheldon family again wreaks havoc - first it was the mother, and now the oh-so-lovely sister. Of course the brains of the family seeks only wisdom in his ignorance of life! [Only 9.9? - It was over too soon!]

    Just when we thought the show was losing a little of its magic the unthinkable happens - it actually gets even better!

    The arrival of a mysterious woman in Sheldon office causes flutters in the gang. To find out its Sheldons twin sister only makes her even more delectable and Leonard quickly finds cause to invite her to stay over.

    Of course the guys become obsessed with her and bid for Sheldons approval as to why each should be the 'chosen one'. Chaos ensues as even Raj makes an effort with an experimental drug in order to win over Missy.

    Best bits, of which there are so many include:

    1.Raj grabbing the drug experiment notice after his first failed attempt at communication,
    2.The fight between the suitors to see who should have first shot - done via a virtual boxing match of course!
    3.The fact that Leonard is completely oblivious to Penny, and Penny actually looks a little disappointed
    4.Horror when Raj knocks on Pennys door to ask Missy out - and it looks like he could be the lucky one - at the exact moment his 'confidence' drug wears off. (i almost cried for him!)
    5.....any one of a dozen other worthy moments Of late it seems to have become somewhat Sheldon centred but this was a return in style, and more so. Some may miss the more Penny/Leonard lines but I feel this was touched upon in a very subtle but important way by Penny's reaction to the way she was almost in the way of his new goal. The best so far....more of this quality and a few awards could be on there way!!!!!
