Episode 3.18 (March 22)

Recommended Posts

No, it airs next week. It's an episode that was recently taped and some of the forum members wrote a review of it. Spoilerly obviously, but hopefully it's be a good episode.

Well, here's something else that's spoilery, the promo:

Enjoy, if you don't mind spoilers that is! ^_^

Hi guys! So, how did you like the episode?

It was great, really! :) Not ''memorable'' (like, everyone remembers the Panty-Pinata episode, but we won't say ''hey, remember the episode when Sheldon won an award and had stage fear?''), but very funny! Sheldon-centric but with still a good mix of the rest of the cast (except Wolowitz... but he didn't cared! :p).

Loved the meditation scene (''Thanks to meditation I can stay in the same room as women without urinating'' (or something like that :p ), and the SimCity thing), and Sheldon drunk is always a good thing, isn't it! :)

The only point I didn't really like was when Leonard get loose on his problems in public... I don't like when the characters humiliate themself like that (althought, ironically, for Sheldon it was absolutely hilarious!)

And I'm gonna end this with a joke: A neutron enters a bar and ask: ''How much for a drink?'', the barman answers: ''For you? No charge.''.

Bazinga! :)

Pretty good episode. They didn't air an L/P only scene that was shot during the taping a few weeks ago (I read a spoiler report from the taping). I know S/P fans probably don't care but for us L/P lovers that was disappointing.

I had mixed feelings about this episode. It was good up until the banquet when both Leonard and Sheldon embarrass themselves. Instead of the witty comedy that I have come to enjoy it devolved into crazy zaniness which I often do not like.

Loved this episode. Everyone got their 5 minutes of fame. Odd how so many "comments" were upset about Leonard's outpouring of his dysfunctional past. The past is over boys and girls. Get over it get on with your life.

Also loved 2 1/2 Men. I think if they give Charlie's bother, Allen, more scenes like last night, then it could take some of the pressure off the "real" Charlie. No more rehab ! AYE YI YI YI !

As a therapist I say the past is never completely over and often today's events can trigger our feelings from the past. The important issue is being aware of when that happens and being able to deal with it.

Ok...sorry for my professional slip. But I did enjoy Leonard & Sheldon's therapy session. It was very funny for me how transference works and how Leonard as the therapist projected his issues onto Sheldon and ended up become the patient in that instance. Very funny!

I'm really in two minds about this episode.

If I hadn't known the show and the characters, I'd say it was a mediocre, funny episode, there were some good jokes (William Shatner of Theoretical Physics, Sim City, Leonard and Sheldon doing therapy), some pretty flat ones (C-men, the whole youtube thing with the pants off).

But since I know the show and the characters, I can't stop wondering - what the hell where the writers thinking, were they thinking at all????

1.) Sheldon never had stage fright before, where did that suddenly come from (hello, Cooper-Hofstadter-Polarization, Sheldon preparing all his speeches for the Nobel Prize ...)??!!

2.) Why on Earth would he suddenly drink alcohol, even more so much that he'd be completely pissed and then get on to embarrass himself up to the point of flashing his bum????

3.) Why would his friends not stop him and even more, put the stuff on youtube?? Okay, Howard has done it before, but with a video like this time, Sheldon's carreer could be completely ruined. What friend does something like that????

For me they just all acted completely out of character in the final five minutes. They were just plain slapstick for me, no TBBT-quality humor.

The only good thing about the last five minutes and the entire episode - they showed once more what a brilliant actor Jim Parsons is. I found most of Sheldon completely out of character, but yet JP managed to deliver all these moods, speeches, movements and so on very believable.

But seriously, writer, were YOU drunk writing this episode????

This was a flawed episode, it's true. The banquet scene was the heart of the problem, as a few other people mentioned. Once again, we have an episode where the whole focus is on Sheldon acting like an idiot, leaving everyone else to hover around him setting up his jokes and acting vicious behind his back. Nope, doesn't work.

That being said, there were plenty of funny moments leading up to the banquet scene (a scene I will not watch again if I can help it). I enjoyed the episode a lot, even with its flaws.

Wow, you have said everything I was thinking! I agree 100%!

Come on, I mean, drunk Sheldon singing the elements song was just hillarious :D

And the x-men variation...

I loved this ep, especially after those before it were rather poorly written.

Well, I loved The Excelsior Acquisition or The Precious Fragmentation - they had all I love about this show: the WHOLE GROUP interacting, doing geeky stuff.

There seem to be two groups of fans now - those who enjoy the geeky-friendship-episodes and those who enjoy the slapstick-Sheldon-is-crazy-episodes...

I like when it is a balance between the two. I like the geeky friendship episodes as well as the Sheldon is eccentric and crazy episodes I just hope they don't go too over the top and silly with the Sheldon is crazy moments because I don't want to see the character changed in to a caricature of himself. That is my biggest fear.

Really? Can't we enjoy both? I know I do! :)
