Episode 1.14 The Nerdmabelia Scattering

Recommended Posts

Agreed, the baffling science talk is part of the charm. I prefer the old skinny, mellower, know-it-all Sheldon myself. JP is still fantastic to watch, but Sheldon is now a little larger than life, if you know what I mean. I'm still enjoying the show because, let's face it, when he's onscreen it's difficult to take your eyes off the guy.

Just to clarify my 'larger than life' comment wasn't about his muscles but his persona. Anyways, I have some fear over what they might do with Sheldon, even though some change is good.

This is one of my favorite episodes. The bit where Leonard goes "into the future" and they all do the fast-forward movements around the room makes me laugh every single time. :D

Whatever happened to the time machine? They never show how/where they got rid of it.

My all time favorite TBBT episode

 

I might have watched this like about 50 times :p....I can almost remember the entire dialogues(even sheldon's :p)

 

Perfect utilization of the characters, everyone shines in this episode... with the top 3 S/L/P in full flow and H/R chipping in with some great one-liners (Talk about your chick magnets :D)

 

Leonard is as endearing as ever , Sheldon is great as good friend to Leonard, and Penny is very sweet by admitting she was wrong and being kind to Leonard (the little kiss on the cheek was just too cute :p)

 

The moral of the story that it is not the nerdy habits that define Leonard but what a good person he is was excellent.

 

Leonard dream sequence was both funny and quite realistic which made it double more fun to watch

Sheldon's dream though not quite realistic but kind of points that the Time Machine will be gone for the next episode (very clever way :))

 

 

And the scene where Leonard starts the time machine and rest of guys start moving very fast was just brilliant...

 

There was not even a single blemish in the entire episode 

 

All in all IMO this was  one of the best / best installments of this show

Small points: Inthe first scene Howard is wearing a green shirt I thought was OK. Very rare any of the guys wear clothes that aren't ghastly. Also that's at least Sheldon's 3rd set of matching dressing gown and pajamas.

The lift has been broken for 2 years gives time to The Staircase Implementation which was when Leonard moved in w Sheldon.

I would have thought Howard would have preferred the 2nd version of The Time Machine with Samantha Mumba in the chain-mail blouse.

There is a great dialogue in this episode.  When Leonard is about give up his Time Machine because Penny called it pathetic and childish, Sheldon called out Penny :

 Little Miss “grown ups don’t play with toys”. If I were to go into that apartment right now, would I find Beanie Babies? Are you not an accumulator of Care Bears and My Little Ponies? And who is that Japanese feline I see frolicking on your shorts? Hello,Hello Kitty!

i thought Sheldon had a point.  We all  enjoy to some extent "immature" stuff and have child-like  traits or hobbies.  Penny did too with her stuffed animals. I thought TBBT captured a good sentiment early on , in the show. 

Another very funny Penny line:

  "it looks like something elton john would drive through the everglades"

Wasen't this episode called The Nerdvanna Annihaltion? In any case top 5 best episode ever from this series to this day. That sequence when the guys were playing out that time machine going back in time. Was one of the all time classic moments in TV history.

Yes, good catch. The Nerdmabilia Scattering was its original name, but it was changed before it aired.

Classic line:

Howard: Look what you've created here, it's like Nerdvana.
