I have just seen the episode and I think it's really good. The highlight was Sheldon in the maid costume of course :icon_cheesygrin:

I also noticed that not only Jim bulked up, but Simon did also. He's not that skinny any more..though he still wears those tight pants which imho are creepy for a guy :icon_confused:

They look good on some guys, if they are black not coloured but they don't really suit Howard.

yes...maybe if they're black it's better.

in actuality, Sheldon wouldn't fit in a dress made for Bernadette.

yet, in the show, he wore it & it fit. that makes it a mistake.

I didn't even like that part, I don't care how short the dress was-

I'm just pointing out the obvious fact that Sheldon wouldn't have fit into it.

Very true. The length is only one aspect of the dress. There is no way a dress made for Bernadette would have contained Sheldon's shoulders. He would never have been able to put it on. Comic license is magic sometimes, though in this case I didn't find it very funny.

Didn't like this one.

It's a good episode in theory, nice guest appearance, amusing situation with Sheldon and Howard.

but the end product, what the episode actually is: not funny.

The show should stick to the guys getting into socially awkward situations. That was my favourite part of the show.

The humor, I like unexpected humor, like when it surprises you. The humor in this episode is the complete opposite. It's very old fashioned really. ("LOL SHELDON FELL DOWN!")

Doesn't really make much sense either, the gags with Sheldon & Howard. I mean the amusing part of the chores/things Howard makes him do, is supposed to be derived from how Sheldon feels about it IMO.

Without that feeling there is no tension whatsoever and the humor is nonexistant unless you're dumb enough to not care about logically what the characters feelings would be.

For the belt buckles, they said Sheldon had an infinite patience in a recent episode. I'm sure he wouldn't mind polishing thousands of belt buckles in one session.

....

.

The funny part, let me it explain it, Poindexter,is the buckles were urine-spotted!

Shelly's fear of everything, and that is -everything- that could possibly be contaminated was overwhelmed, by his lust to see Hawking.


the only thing I didn't like about Sheldon in the maid costume was that it kinda fit him, despite the fact that it was originally for Bernadette, who is clearly tinier than him.

.

He grew into the part. :)

As Howard explained, splashback.

Splashback my butt, I don't have a problem with it yet Howard seems to pee on himself.

Or unless Howard puts his whole pelvis region in the toilet is also the only other reason which sounds more like it.

Maybe he has to be standing very close to the urinal with his pelvis pushed forward in order to not make a mess on the floor. If that is the case, which if you think about it makes the most sense and unless he produces extremely high pressure, either way results in splashback, then I feel sorry for Bernadette.

Spashback. Howard said it. However it happens, that is what caused the spots.

If you knew what was transferd to "airborne" particles when you "flushed"..... "splashback" is the least of your worries and we should leave Howard's explanation as that!

If Howard has to stand that close without making a mess and everything and is over 30 and pee without making a mess then maybe he needs adult diapears.

Since I'm a girl, I'm no expert on the technicalities of urinals, but wouldn't the splashback comment suggest that it's an indirect joke about Howard's height?

Well it could but him and Leonard are the same height plus the only way he got urine on his buckle is unless he's right up basically pressed against the urinal and why would his buckle be in there

Well, this show is known for exaggerating lots of things, that's what makes the jokes funny. For example, all the jokes about how fat Howard's mom is. I doubt she's SO fat that she can step on her own breasts. And Howard's shortness has been joked about in this way many times on the show.

We are argueing about how a man got urine on his belt buckle for God's sake. I'm going to go with what Howard said and leave it at that.

I need a "like" button for this one.

I doubt howard's mom is that fat but at the same time I doubt she was a model in her younger days, she's probably going to be like Charlie browns teacher how we never saw what she looked like.
