I've been so excited to see this episode that I momentarily forgot that this Thursday is my birthday!

I had noted before that it was airing on my birthday, but lately I'd been trying to figure out whether they were going to air a rerun this month, etc., and I totally forgot about my birthday.

And I NEVER forget my birthday!! LOL!

I'm so happy that we get a Shamy story on my birthday! What a nice present--thank you, BBT! :biggrin:

OH NO, HOW COULD SHE!? :swoon:

 

I think, just for the last part of this preview clip (Amy's evil to-the-point-analysis of Indiana Jones' role*  :diablo:  (and Sheldon's priceless reaction)) this will gona be my all time favorite episode ever, no matter what comes! :dancer: :dancer: :dancer:

 

I usually try not to watch Sneak previews, but this was totally worth the spoiling!!

 

(*I think I have to try this one on one of my nerdier Indy-addicted friends, too, before the episode airs! :D :diablo: )

I liked it. Penny was so hot, and they did it in the lab again. Of course they ruined RAIDERS for me.

Grade: A-

 

I liked this episode with seeing Leonard's mom again via Skype, Stuart and Raj trying online dating, Amy also blowing my mind even though I have never seen "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" at all, and of course Leonard and Penny doing it in the lab again.

 

And also notice Sheldon didn't say that the love story in Pride and Prejudice was pointless.  He just simply said "it works."

Well ... If I had a Top Five Worst Episodes list, this would be #3.

This one had it all ... Unfunny lines, gross Leonard and Penny sex, Bernadette being a witch, Raj and Stuart being pathetic and a rather sizable plot hole where we were all supposed to believe that Sheldon had never before seen a "Garfield" comic strip. (He was obviously already familiar with it a few seasons back during the bowling episode, when Sheldon brought Penny ice cream because of the "Cathy" strip ... He then said, "If you were a cat, I would have brought you a lasagna.")

This was just a jumbled mess ... And after last week's hilarious triumph, a real disappointment. Hope next week's is better, but I don't have much hope ... It looks like it's going to focus on more lame Shamy relationship nonsense.

Penny sitting on that couch in her pink lingerie- WOW!  So glad that Sheldon agrees with me that Pride and Prejudice is a faultless masterpiece.  

Nice fun episode, but again what are they doing with Bernadette?  Don't get me wrong the whole "sex for pity" storyline with Leonard and Penny and then Howard trying it was a bit silly, and haven 't that done that once before?  But Bernadette just seems to scream at Howard all the time lately. Can't they show them being nice and loving to each other once in a while?

I liked this episode.  I thought the storyline with both Lenny, Shamy as well as Stuart and Raj was very funny.

I loved the Shamy scenes and the Raj/Stuart scenes were extremely fun as well.  The Lenny scenes were honestly kind of dull to me.  I really could not stand how they dressed her in that pink nightie.   Sorry, but it was far too trashy and making her look like a cheap hooker.  Penny is too good for that kind of look.   She could have been dressed in a very sexy negligee but not that trashy thing.  It was good to have Bev, but she was just a "blink and you miss it" role in this.  Such a shame because I like Bev.  

 

Two things I liked with the Lenny story was 1) Penny is still in school...this was great news and it was good to see she seemed to be doing well in it and enjoying it; and 2) they had Penny still getting together with her old friends from S3 and watching sports.  I loved that they remembered she had friends outside of the gang.  

 

But Shamy are growing deeper and lovelier as a couple.  They will always be quirky which I love.   I really liked that Sheldon could not find fault with P&P because it is a wonderful book.   It was fun to see him actually realize that Amy has a lot of interests that he could not find flaw with.   LOL!

Best ep of s7. The writers and actors have lifted their game (IMHO). Even liked the Sheldon character.

Oh please of course you wouldent like it, it wsa focused on Leonard and Penny's relationship, so any views or opinion you have on the ep is not exactly objective.

I have the same concerns with Bernadette.  She is funny but they have to watch that line where she crosses over to shrew.  We really don't want Bernie and Howie to become the new Mr. & Mrs. Constanza.  It would be sad because she was the nerd-girl that loved playing with the boys and being herself too. :stop:

Guest I'm not dead Cheryl

loved the ep, although I didn't really care about the Penny/Leonard storyline.

 

 

and Amy is absolutely right about Raiders... still one of my favorite movies but she is right. Indy didn't even manage to rescue Marion, they both ended up tied to that pole! they just survived the whole thing LOL

 

*sigh*

 

really liked Amy saying to Sheldon that they can be better than his parents. Loved it, LOVED IT.

 

Raj& Stuart were my other favorite part, Stuart's faces when Raj was taking his picture were PRICELESS! Kevin was awesome!!!!!!

Liked how Bernie was able to see right through Howard's intentions

That is true, they seem to be pushing the shrew lately.  It would nice if we see the little shy Catholic girl some more.

I didn't really see how Bernadette was in the wrong. She only yelled at him when he kept insisting. She saw right through his intentions and Howard wasn't telling the truth even though she knew what he was trying to do.

The weirdest thing for me was Penny saying to Leonard..... "Now you don't get the left or the right"..........exactly the same as has happened with Kaley and Johnny in real lfe!

 

No wonder Leonard was sad!

 

Overall, apart from the exposee of Raiders of the Lost Ark, not the Bang's finest (half) hour.

 

But did we see the beginnings of a Howette breakup?
