Season 6 spoilers

Recommended Posts

Okay, so! Made it in, despite the confusion.

I'll do this as best I can. My memory is different from day to day. I might be missing some bits and pieces, but it's the general idea.

* Howard is still in space.

* This episode was more relationship-based than the previous two. The last two have been great in terms of being similar to seasons 1-3, this had a season 4 vibe to it.

* Stuart was not in this one at all.

* No guests other than Margo.

* Less substance, but some REALLY funny lines.

[L/S apartment]

Leonard and Sheldon are hanging out. Penny comes knocking and walks in with a box that's from Sheldon's mom, labeled "Shelly's preschool." It's a bunch of his pre-nursery "work" that he did as a child, which of course all sounds really smart. It's just a bunch of composition books with his research in it.

He says since the Higgs Boson took about 50 years to get recognized as being "true," he thought that maybe he's already made some scientific breakthrough with stuff he did as a kid. He wants someone to read everything over because his time is 'too important' to do it himself. He looks at Leonard. Leonard is like, "fuck no."

Penny says, "Maybe I can do it!" and Sheldon does his, "...really? REALLY?" and Leonard says that maybe he should just hire a grad student as his assistant. He likes the idea.

[university offices/hall]

Sheldon is interviewing a potential candidate (who he does 'hire'). This is Alex (Margo Harshman, who is just too cute, I may add). The banter between them is cute, and he says, "Flattery will get you nowhere." and she says, "It's not flattery if it's true." and he takes her in.

[scene of Howard webchatting with Bernadette]

The capsule that's supposed to come get the astronauts is delayed and he will have to be in space for another 7-10 days, but he's at the point where he almost can't take it any more and is having bad anxiety attacks. He says hilarious stuff in some of the clips. I don't want to give it all away. We don't hear Howard's mother at all, either.

[Penny's apartment]

Amy and Penny are sitting around doing makeup for not particular reason. Amy puts on some nice lip gloss and says, "Yep, I'm a man-eater now." She pulls out her phone to voice chat Sheldon and tells Penny, "If my new look leads to phone sex, I'm going to have to ask you to leave the room."

However, Alex answers the facetime chat and Amy is confused, but Alex takes a message. Penny asks what's wrong and Amy says that Sheldon told her his new assistant was Alex, but she didn't know it was a girl. Penny says, "Maybe he didn't notice."

Amy reveals she's jealous of Alex because she's good looking. Penny says she's got nothing to worry about because it's Sheldon.

Amy still isn't at ease, so Penny and Amy go to the university because Amy kinda wants to semi-spy on them. They see Margo, Sheldon, Raj, and Leonard sitting at a table in the cafeteria, and Margo is flirting with Leonard.

Amy says, "You're right, I don't have to worry. That skank is your problem, not mine."

I want to make it clear that Leonard was NOT interested/reciprocating at all. Penny wasn't even irrationally upset like she normally gets.

Amy points out that she might be flustered because now she sees Leonard as more desirable.

[L/S apartment]

Penny and Leonard are hanging out and Penny keeps asking how Leonard's day was, seeing if he mentions anything about the assistant. Alex and Sheldon come in the door and Penny introduces herself and Alex asks how she knows Leonard. She says, "We're kinda involved in this 5-year experiment." and Alex replies, "You're very lucky, he's really great and I know a lot of people would want to work with him." and Penny says, "Well, a lot of people can't." as she takes Leonard's hand and excuses them for what we can assume is sexy time.

Then there's a little interaction between Sheldon and Alex and then a small clip of Howard in space, and that's it.

Thank you, sounds like Alex might be around for at least another episode? I like that Amy seems to have stopped "hitting" on Penny, at least from what I have read of the first 3 episodes of Season 6. Thanks again for "spoiling" us.

And one last thought I think perhaps Penny is suffering from "dual" personalities.

No kidding. Or like a child who loses interest in a toy until another child might want it.

I bet you anything she'll be right back to almost breaking up with him the very next episode. :p

Hmmm.. is Leonard turning into some sort of Penny's positional good? That she only values him when there's a threat of someone taking the object?

In other news, I'm loving Amy's lines for the past 3 episodes!

Thank you Kyzzx for the report!:icon_cool:

Thank you Kyzzx, for the description. Yes, penny seriously needs to grow up, but I guess they are doing this on purpose this season, so that perhaps she will.

Thanks Kryzz!

Penny is getting on my nerves right now, and I didn't want that, because I love her. I really hope they put L&P or at least Penny in the background for the next couple of episodes. These first 3 have been very heavy with Leonard/Penny. It's time to give it a rest.

Amy is carrying all the comedy on the show. Love her!

Pretty much where the general direction was/is going now anyway - so not really anything ground-breakingly new.

I guess the producers feel it is time for the nerds to grow up and become just like everyone else, and for the show to become like every other show out there.

They "shall boldly go where everyone else has already gone before !"

Predictable and formula to a "T".

Yawwwnnnnn.

NEXT !

Perfectly stated! "Friends", we have arrived.

I'm a little puzzled by the claim of "Friends" similarity. Not being a fan of "Friends" the only thing I found in research about the show and the few times I saw it, is a great deal of personal drama with comedy mixed in. The longest I remember TBBT going for a heartfelt dramatic moment is Howard's "I'm a changed man" speech at Bernette's door. And that ended with a huge laugh from Penny's comment.

Are the shows that thematically similar? Do they execute their comedy in the same way?

Amy's jealous. Penny's jealous. Raj's lonely.

All relationship angst. All the time. "Friends". And now TBBT.

Turning Amy into a sex-starved harpy just doesn't work, especially with her looks. They should have kept her as a female version of Sheldon.

a "sex starved harpy" ???? and what does her looks have to do with anything she says? only model-types are allowed to talk about sex?

Thanks for the report Kyzzx.

Was there any good bloopers and/or interesting interaction among the cast that you remember?

While Mayin is not your classic Hollywood Beauty, IMHO her appearances on recent talk show etc shows a very appealing personality.

I am a Fan of Lesli Winkle and would love to see Sara Gilbert on the show more often. I love the way she puts Sheldon down like no one else can.

agreed. I would love to see Leslie Winkle again... can you imagine how awesome would be to have Leslie putting Sheldon down, Amy hearing it, and stepping up and BAM! Amy vs Leslie showdown while the rest of the gang watches them jaw_dropped LOL.

I need that to happen.

Does Sheldon have 2 assistants now?

Raj and Margo?

:icon_question:

Raj is not Sheldon's assistant. Sheldon might have acted like it, but Raj is an Astrophysicist, he has the same category as Sheldon.

Raj was working "with" Sheldon, despite Sheldon saying he was working "for" him :icon_lol:

Easy-peasy :icon_mrgreen:

Even so ...

The University must have a lot of money ... or importance of the work of Sheldon has grown, so he gets money for colleagues and assistants ...

Thank you sooo much for you effort Kyzzx :)

I have one question though, what is the title of this episode???

Thanks.

Ah, sorry. It's The Higgs Boson Observation.

I might be going too deep with this, but I think they are comparing the Higgs Boson thing to Penny and Leonard. That even after all this time, it's "true." Maybe not, though.


Thanks for the report Kyzzx.

No one could get through an entire scene this evening. EVERYONE messed up at least once. It was a lot compared to what I've seen. Even Margo messed up and Kaley was like, "It's okay, we all do it!"

Some of the lines were so funny, the actors couldn't hold themselves together and they would have to start over.

The work of the actors TBBT is a group effort. Everyone deserves to be nominated, winning admiration.

How do you call that? Choral performance??

It's one of the things I like about TBBT

So, for someone to be a legitimate sex-starved creature, you need to show 75% your boobs most of the time or do not wear a bra under your shirt at certain scenes? Right. Got it. Or if you're male, you should either have a roommate who's from Texas and have a crush on your neighbor or be an engineer who got a master's degree from MIT.

It's called and Ensemble Cast. :D Yeah, I do like it too that they work together just fine.

They seriously need to cool it with the relationship drama, especially L/P. WTF? It's like I'm reading spoilers for an entirely different show.

Thanks for the info.

agreed. I'm all for relationships, but the whole LP thing, specially Penny's "I don't know what I want" is getting on my nerves. I really hope they push that in the background for the next couple of episodes at least. Too heavy on the first 3

Thanks so much for the report, Kyzzx!

I'm still not sure where they're going with L/P, or specifically with Penny. But I think I'll enjoy the Sheldon/Alex aspect of this episode. Also, I see that there's no Shamy in this one - I'm glad they're not pushing too hard with them. I liked Penny's reassurances to Amy about Sheldon probably not even noticing that Alex is a girl. :)

Good to know there are many funny lines!

IMHO Lesli has been the best at putting Sheldon in his place, DUM ASS. But then the grad student who wanted recognition with Sheldon's work did a great job of nailing Lesli'

Margo's mom responded to me when i asked if they have any idea if it's more than one episode.

Margo's mom said "They haven't said."

I love Margo as all you know. So i hope it's a 15 episode arc for her. lol. Ill second the taping reporter times 100. She is adorable and she's a sweetheart.

Thanks for sharing, Kyzzx. Glad you managed to get in.

Questions for you: I have read the casting sides for Alex and Penny had some lines in the last scene in the apartment that implied that she was about to break up with Leonard right before Sheldon interrupts. It was something along the lines of "you are awesome but we're in different places in our lives". Did you get the impression that she was thinking about breaking up with Leonard at all?

Did Sheldon and Amy interact in this episode?

Also, was Raj in the episode at all? Was Bernadette in any live action scenes?

Thanks.

I swear, why do they have to start the season so late? Think of how long it will be before we even see this one.
