Recommended Posts

The Laureate Accumulation
Airs Thursday, April 4 at 8/7c on CBS

When competitors Pemberton (Sean Astin) and Campbell (Kal Penn) charm America on a publicity tour, Sheldon and Amy try to bring Nobel laureates Kip Thorne, George Smoot and Frances Arnold to their side. Also, Halley's fear of the dark leads to opportunity and conflict for Howard, Bernadette and Stuart.

Excited for this episode! It has been awhile since we have had a new episode. I like Sean and just read he will be in an additional two episodes before finale.  I also love to watch Howardette so I will be anxious to see how the book turns out they end up writing.

Where did you hear that they write a book? I just thought they used a book to test the kids. Have you got a link to where they write a book? I must have missed something.

In the taping report. Stuart does the illustrations... Howie tells Hallie a story about when he was in space. Bernie over hears him over the monitor in the babies room. She convinces him to do it...

I can't wait to see that. I'll have to go look for the taping report. I've always said that Stuart should get successful with his art.

Was fine to me. Not great but I am tired of Leonard slamming Sheldon all the time...the jokes are old and tiresome now.  Kind of like the Leonard settled for Penny ones. They put all the effort into having  him evolve over the years but are still content to trash him in every single episode.  

The best part for me was the female scientist I read she is the first female Nobel scientist to be on the show. So I enjoyed that as well. 

I was happy Amy spoke up. I am annoyed that Shamy did the work but may not get the credit they deserve. 

I loved Howardette. Howie had the best line about green eggs and ham. That made me chuckle. The book at the end was really cute.

Yes ! They all poke at each other over stuff that was true when they were twenty-something bachelors.

Fairly good episode all things considered. Lenny saving Sheldon’s butt from all the stupid things he said in the past. The Smoot one on the train episode for example. Ironic Amy was the one that lost it. If she is the one that loses the Nobel nomination Sheldon will never let her forget it.

Actually liked the Howdette storyline. Maybe a little too cute for TBBT. A Bit Like a Little house on the Prairie.

JMO but find it hard to have sympathy for all the crap he has given Leonard and the others over the years. Kind of like Why Smoot and the other physicists didn’t want to come to the party.

Even with the guests I found this to be a turkey of an episode. Once again the YS episode was better.

Not many episodes left so I will likely keep watching but I am way less interested than I used to be.

I like it when Leonard explains the secrets of science to his wife. 🙂

I  stopped watching half way thru the episode. That has never happened before!

Super boring is too nice of a description!

Not sure why Lenny was brought into the discussion. The poster you replied to had no mention of that.

Because the poster, as they said, thought the Lenny stuff was not much better?

The Howardette story was cute and the book was adorable. I've been saying for years I'd like to see Stuart succeed through his art.

I was surprised to see Amy get that emotional in public.

Yes, the comic book angle was one of THE best things Howard, Bernadette and Stewart have done in a LONG time.  

Sweet.

It will be a shame if this show keeps up this lame "asymetry" story line until the end. At this rate I am expecting a worse final episode than "Seinfeld." I hope they prove me wrong.

Thus far, the going out with a bang has been a going out with a dud!

I watched some parts (and some I only heard while I was making something for mylittle CXG finale viewing party), just wanted to check out Lenny and a bit of the Howardette story.

The Howardette story was cute, okay for a B/C plot I guess but not very funny. Simon was good. What I found the funniest was actually the irony of Howard asking Bernadette if she's sure she's not Jewish, when Melissa IRL is Jewish. 

Lenny were great, great dynamic. They didn't have much there, they were just being Shamy's helpers and I wish they had more going on but Johnny and Kaley made the best of it and their chemistry IMO lights up the screen.

The Leonard and Sheldon scene was good

The Nobel plot seemed boring but I didn't really watch it. I caught Amy's outburst and IDK I didn't feel it and it wasn't funny IMO but again I didn't really watch.

Yeah. But not only the chemistry, also the…
