109 'Spock, Kirk, and Testicular Hernia' (December 21)

Recommended Posts

That was very banal at the beginning and then there was the lying which was so not Sheldon. How could it be that an adult who is lousy at lying and gets so nervous about breaking the rules could pull off these lies? I expected him to make up crazy obvious lies and when he didn't that just wasn't Sheldon to me...

I enjoyed more 1.08 episode than this one. The way Sheldon handled with lies was a bit off compared with the way we are used to see him handling with this kind of situations. However, when we were kids , there were things that we handled in a different way as we handle in adult age. Maybe we see more about Sheldon and lies in upcoming episodes for we understand better his latter change of approaching to the subject...

Btw now we know from where Sheldon's worries about the details when a lie is told came from, lol!

I would expect one to be worse at lying as a kid rather than as an adult...

Sheldon wasn't a bad liar, even at the beginning of the show. He had the tendency of creating elaborated and detailed lies, like the ''cousin Leo'' one, which penny believed without problems. Now we know where he got that habit.

Creating these too elaborated lies makes one more likely to get caught, which means they're bad liars. I'm not sure Penny would have bought that lie if Leonard wasn't in it (however reluctantly). Maybe at first but not for long, Sheldon ("Doctor Whackadoodle") by himself would not be that reliable and also would probably sabotage himself later (the robotic female voice he used for Leonard's fake hookup, for instance, would have given him away).

The best quote from the episode, LOL!
