Thanks, Phanta....but I only use official releases.  Folks on IG don't always use official released promos. :girlsigh:

Well, the ones I've seen have the CBS logo in the corner and have the "Next Monday on the #1 Comedy" thing, the usual voiceover, etc.

ETA: Found the clip at the other forum.

Yes that was the one I posted as being up earlier.   There are no other releases but that and that one was up in the link I posted.   I guess you hadn't had a chance to look at what I had already posted before posting your messages.

The only clip I saw--and maybe it has to do with how your site loads or something--was that "combo promo" advertising new episodes of several shows, but with no actual new clip.  It was the Supergirl ad.

For some reason, these clips don't show up when I go to your page.  The only one I can see is still the combo promo.  I can see the blank spaces where the other clips are supposed to be.

I guess I'll try to see them on the CBS.com site.

Huh...those are direct from the CBS site embeddable links....they seem to have worked for others and the combination clip is the only one NOT from CBS site....but another site.   How odd!

i liked the episode :) I had a smile on my face like the entire time watching it !
I didn't find it super hilarious, though, i think they only 2 times i really laughed hard was both Raj's lines

I never thought of myself as a fan of Shelnard friendship but for some reason i really loved watching them doing smth together and even realized i missed it O-o

Also (even though i originally actually started watching the show cause of physics) i'm one of those insatiable shippers who refers to non-shipper episodes as filler episodes , i found myself actually enjoying that there's fiiiinally some sciency stuff and realized i missed it too. I mean Shamy is great, but it is also nice to have an episode where you don't understand some words. I've just recently been re-watching first seasons and realized i had to pause and translate like most of what was coming out of Sheldon's mouth, and that i barely had to do that in later seasons.

Also love Sheldon's lie about 'wedding planner who can't find love'... shows where his subconsicous's at .

Unpopular (most likely) opinion : Amy's few dates didn't really bother me. I feel like (and it feels more tangible to me in the episode than in TR) that she just felt really unconfident and these dates, the fact she has them, give her confidence and a feeling of self-worth and that she's actually attractive... I can't get Bernie's line from S9E2 out of my heard "i think it's better to have someone being with you because they want to, not because they believe they don't have any other option" and i kinda feel the same about Amy, i want her to know she can score others.. I mean she'll choose Sheldon anyway! (obviously). Because love is stronger, duh : ) But I want her to feel confident about herself, and attractive. And just have a little bit of experiences she missed as a teenager, since she longed for those so much .

Was not impressed with the episode.  I did like the fact that Sheldon and Leonard were working together as equals.  And Michael Rappaport was entertaining but under-utilized IMHO.

The rest of the gang with the dating app - sorry my grandchildren act more mature than they did and the oldest one is 9.  I'm not going to get into the whole SHAMY breakup because this is just filler until they get back together.  But I thought it was wrong how they acted.  For people who got picked on (well maybe not Bernadette and Penny) they have no problem making fun of others.  As Sheldon said they are too old for that crud...

I found the episode funny, and I loved all of the bantering during the Helium exchange.  It felt like the old days when they talked about stuff that no one understood but them.  I just love Shelnard so much.

I loved Sheldon trying to be ethical and do the right thing.

If the t-shirt color theory holds true (blue and purple) then it seems he's hoping to find love again.  I felt bad for Sheldon commenting on his singleness.   Clearly, his mind is still on trying to get over Amy, especially with the Wedding Planning comment.

I liked seeing Amy bent all out of shape about the dating application and even being a bit embarrassed about Dave.   I am glad she said she's doing it because she is still trying to figure it all out and because she has no experience, but she certainly did not seem enthusiastic about it.   I'm glad Bernie called her out on her mixed message about not being ready to move on but doing so anyway.

One thing stood out to me:   Sheldon acknowledging that he is capable of winning a battle and yet losing a war

Fair or average. Found the Leonard/Sheldon part mostly amusing. The Helium guy really played them for suckers. The dating app for Amy part made me feel really bad for Amy. You could see she was really uneasy with this dating thing even when she admitted she already had dated. Please just put Shamy back together again for Amy ,Sheldon, and Lennys happiness. Happy characters are easier to laugh at. Again, it is a sitcom!

Also dropped it a letter grade for NO Lenny!
