For those who are unspoiled, I would recommend not looking at the promo pics.  Episodes are subject to editing after the pics are released.

You can always play simple games like Solitaire on your phone.  You don't need wifi for that. :p

  You're right! Solitaire and Backgammon helped me get throughout hours of no electricity power in stormy winter nights ;)

Kind of Shocked to find out Amy taught Sheldon how to drive wish we could have seen Amy do it an episode earlier this season or last season if I were Leonard I would start making Sheldon drive himself but that's just me. I also loved Lenny and Shamy tonight

Loved the Leonard/Penny and Shamy moments tonight and one minor nitpick I had was that Raj and Howard knew each other back in 2003 not 10 years ago (unless it was rounded down) over all a very good episode even though we will have to deal with more reruns for a few weeks.

Whoever is in the wardrobe department really needs to pay attention. Sheldon's wearing the same damn jacket he did when he ran off in the finale. I thought all his stuff except the shirts and one sock he was wearing (...and his underwear, of course ) was stolen....

I really enjoyed the Raj/Howard plot tonight. I like it when they are not afraid to get a bit deeper into scientific questions, including the role of religion in science.

 

Did anyone else think Simon/Howard actually looked nice in the jacket he was wearing?

 

Hopefully, they are moving toward a change in living arrangements. Maybe we will even see Shamy living together!

I thought this episode was funny and heartfelt.  The living situation was addressed in a way that makes sense for the characters as well as the longevity of the show.  My only complaint is that the two plots were completely separate.  None of Jim/Johnny/Kaley/Mayim had any scenes at all with Melissa/Simon/Kunal.  I love those combinations, but they've been done a lot this season and it would be nice if they'd mix it up a bit more.

I generally liked the Shamy/ Lenny storyline. i'm sure my fellow Lenny fans would wish the moving in together was quicker.Thought the Raj/ Howard storyline was total filler. Bernadette was non existent in this episode.( indifferent about that actually) Really need Emily back on the show ASAP.

I gave it an ok. Wasnt feeling the raj/howard storyline. I normally like their plots but not this time. Kinda joking abt religion rubbed me wrong. You can believe in science and be religious. Look at mayim. Anywho.

Sheldon and.Leonard part was cute. Leonard has stayed at penny's many times. I could believe 2 days but not 1 day at wk.

Penny in the skimpy outfit (Insert Leonard eye roll)

Im glad amy got to do what she she wanted. I thought she looked really cute in the ep.

Not a fav ep. It was ok

Similar jacket but not same. Train station jacket was a darker bottom half.

And as Rachel says, could have bought a new one. It's been a while now and he does have money.

From The AV Club, regarding Sheldon and Leonard:

 

It’s the type of passionate but reasoned argument that has to happen in any meaningful relationship, and the low-key nature of the execution here is charming and absorbing.

 

And about the episode...

 

“The Space Probe Disintegration” isn’t the show’s finest half hour, but it is a relatively honest and meaningful look at the many deep-seated feelings of its main characters as they continue to go through a time of transition.

I really liked this episode, both couples are acting like a married couple (as they both have been doing a lot this season).

I also liked the serious and honest talk between Leonard and Sheldon, about the compromises and the living arrangements, and that they agreed that Lenny will have 4b and Sheldon/Shamy 4a.

I was going to give this episode an Excellent, but the tag scene ruined a lot. Why couldn't they have just let Lenny have that one night without him?

Not all that interesting an episode from my point of view. Like we were to feel L/S's pain a bit. I really don't like shopping.
