I love the scene when the girls discuss Superman and Batman. :girlhaha: Also a little funny that Kaley  briefly dated Superman.

Oh my goodness, how cute is it that Sheldon is laying on his bed on his stomach with his feet wiggling behind him!   

I thought he would still be sick, but he seems to be over it.   Makes me feel better about how this is being played out.

I love how Amy is trying to reason gently with Sheldon and then bails at the end to avoid his tantrum.

Oh, and the girls talking about superheroes.   It reminds me of the Thor discussion several seasons ago.   The guys looks in the kitchen are just priceless.

Can't wait.

Regardless of ramifications of Raj plot in taping report, was great to finally see Emily and Penny getting along. And she comes to Girls night? Need to see that to accept Emily as a member of the gang. Love Penny's knowledge of Batman/iron man. Now all I need is her watching Arrow with Leonard and recognising the show is a ripoff of Dark Knight trilogy!

At first, I was like "whaaaat? Emily on girls' night?". It's new to all of us but it's good to know that we can see Emily more with the others. We've only seen the creepy Emily so far so it might be interesting to know her more than that. I also love how the guys reacted to the girl's geeky conversation. It's really cute that they are unconsciously knowing all of these because of their husbands/boyfriends. I didn't watch the ShAmy part of the preview, though. I learned that Amy is still away for the convention (or back injury. haha.) so they're gonna have limited scenes together. My friend and I are saving all reactions and ShAmy feels until the episode is on so we can savor it together no matter how short. :friends:

Yeah duno about Emily and girls night. Theirs too much characters as it is. Generally don't like the girls scenes. Adding one more I don't know how I feel about that. Well see when I watch it.

How is 4 girls in a room more crowded than 4 guys in a room? It's ok you don't like girl scenes but I'm not sure it makes a difference adding one more.

Ok that was pretty good, except the tag. My look was much like Leonard's and Howard's while watching it. Oh well. Love that they included Emily and gave her some great lines. Probably the most we've seen her in an episode. They seem to have dropped her dark side. Loved how she stood up to Sheldon. The rest of the episode was an interesting twist on the old Sheldon's even a bigger pain when he's sick. Even Amy knew to stay away. But she also teaches him that he is wrong the way way he treats people. Laughed a few times, liked the t shirts.

What happened to the Girlfriend/Boyfriend agreement? Though it obviously worked out better without one. I mentioned this on the Lenny thread I though the opening was very nostalgic. In season 1 Leonard was shy, Howard was a perv and Raj couldn't talk to women. What a difference now with the three in the kitchen and their wives/girlfriend in the living room. I think that's what those guys always wanted and they all realized that. Though Sheldon was the central figure in the episode it seems Emily was the star of the episode. To me she was actually likeable. She stood up to Sheldon and wouldn't accept his apology until he gave a real one. It was interesting that her and Penny bonded in the apartment and the bus. Apparently their feud is forgotten. As to the shirts that appears to be something like Sheldon's council of Ladies. I'm guessing the women on the thread enjoyed Raj on the pole. Overall an excellent episode.

Emily was definitely the star of the episode!

Excellent episode. Episode of the season for me. Great balance. Penny and Bernadette showering Raj with money LOL. Felt like old days in the opening scene. With the girls like in S6. And the guys WOW lol. For 56 seconds this is good. Then Sheldon walks in... LOL. Oh well status quo resumes LOL. I loved the flashbacks to him annoying everyone. It felt like TPTB vicarosley through the characters, were saying yeah we know were sick of Sheldon too. Penny was bang on. When Emily was like "I know he is a jerk, but I kinda feel bad for him" Penny: Now you see our problem LOL. I LOLED for the first time in years. When Sheldon told Stuart you clearly were not invited, poor Stuart LOL. Emily I bloddy love you!! Finnally someone stands up to Sheldon. Officially love her character. Sheldons never genuinely sorry though. Because he well just repeat his behaviour in the future, so well he ever learn? Made me realize though. AS much as this was Sheldon heavy again. Like Barney, the show would not be the same without Sheldon. For better, or for worse.  Penny poor girl. She already revealed shes unhappy with the manchild. Sheldon then comes in full guns blazing, when shes in the shower LOL. Leonard!!! Finnally we see a scene like that haha. Overall great episode. Not alot of Lenny for my liking haha. But well see in the future. Just a Fun Fun episode. And showed how Sheldon is now just some guy that takes up alot of room, and a guy they have to put up with on a daily basis. Enjoyed the interaction of just Leonard and Sheldon. Felt like the old days. 

 

ETA: Has Johnny gained weight? One scene where Leonard and Sheldon were talking. Damn pot belly. Looks like someones been enjoying life a little too much.
