I liked the episode but then again I am easily entertained. I just had to awww when Sheldon sang soft kitty to Amy

I loved that ❤️ Sheldon was so sweet and worried about her. I loved the sensory deprivation tank scenes as well. I have always wanted to try one...

What a boring waste. Yeah, Sheldon always will be Sheldon. What a "fun" surprise!
Maybe I should go into one of those egg-shaped vessel, too (Emergency Code: Penny).
(I'm sure Timothy Leary would be proud of me.)

Only laugh  - Raj steering the scooter away .

Actress playing Amy does'nt feel like a complete actor. None of her issues felt genuine.

On a side note , are Leonard and Penny full time personal assistants of Sheldon and Amy??

For me Sheldon's mind adventure in the isolation tank was the best part. That was rather short.

Pros to the ep were Siebert and Mrs. Davis. I love both of them and can't see enough of them. The ending where Mrs. Davis pulled out the crystal glasses and bottle was the best scene. I also like that they gave so much attention regarding this episode to the girls in Amy's vision in the tank scene. Mayim seems to have had fun with them on set and I'll bet they will remember it all of their lives.

Cons are that Sheldon practically called Penny a drunk and she let him do it AGAIN, just like she's often let him imply she's a slut. The dulling her brain with alcohol type of joke is tired at this point. I have total sympathy for people who think Penny drinks too much because of the number of times we've seen her do it and have seen it discussed. I'm prepared for the virtual rotten tomatoes I expect to get thrown at me, but when he says these things Penny could take him down and would have in the first few seasons. She allows it, accepts it and doesn't seem to mind it. Shouldn't she at this point?

Second con is that they also reverted to Bernie allowing Howard nothing he wants even though he earns a living. This always irritates me. If he wanted to assert his masculinity with a toy, most men I know would buy a Harley, not a motor scooter, but still...she shouldn't be on his ass about stuff like this and they should be able to talk about money management by now. I didn't see genuine concern for the father of her children here, although I know that's what they were going for. I saw her being overbearing again, and they can write her better. I've seen them do it. Simon and Melissa have GREAT chemistry and comedic timing. They've often been the bright spots this season.

I honestly was waiting for Amy at some point for to decide, I'm a neurologist, not a physicist, and pull out of the nomination leaving it to the guys, and I'm glad I was wrong about that, because it reinforces my feeling that perhaps none of them will win, but this ep was not what I expected for a wind down the show ep.

Male writers? It's like I said earlier IMO the female writers are just their to make coffee. The thing is Penny's not having kids for a career but she's a drunk and a slut. Does that mean career women are sluts?

They wrote Penny as a drunk and a slut long before they wrote her as a career woman. That's another issue.

WOW there is not much to say about this episode other than what was good seeing President Siebert again  , and what was bad EVERYTHING ELSE.  This was an awful episode and was not funny or entertaining it was quite boring.

Oh and once again Leonard & Penny are nothing but sidekicks too Shamy. Plus given what happened it is pretty much guaranteed they will win the Noble Prize🙄

I was thinking Lenny were the Rubbles and Shamy the Flintstones, but it amounts to the same thing. 🤔

In real life the actor and actress that played the Mertzes couldn't stand each other.

I don't think they ever truly stopped.

 

Then why did they make her the poster child of childless career women?

Amy's discomfort would have made more sense to me if the prize was in Neuroscience.

I totally agree.  I enjoyed Sheldon in the sleep deprivation lab and President Seibert’s fit.  Otherwise the whole Nobel thing just took up too much airtime. .,  It was an okay  episode.

Sheldon could never move too far from his precious 0,0,0,0! For those who have forgotten, that's Sheldon's spot in apartment 4 A!

And he would have to change all the tags in his underwear!

Maybe they see these as two different issues? They think career women can be drinkers? I don't know. I'm never in the writer's room. Believe me, I wish I could be.

Yeah, Vivian Vance got paired with a guy FAR older so the Ricardos would seem younger.

Lucy and Viv had their ups and downs, but, evidently, were pretty close.

TPTB and the writers seem to think so. I look at it as though Lenny is Sheldon and Amy's babysitters!
