There will be about 23/24 episodes this season, running until May. Episodes 12 and up haven't been announced yet. They produce episodes until April so most episodes haven't been recorded yet, or even written.

There are always breaks as they produce 24 episodes a year to air in the 36 week season (thats excluding the summer reruns). The reason for a two week break this time is that they didn't have a break around Halloween/start of November which they usually do.

January - May 2011. They start mid-January and finish late-May so there will be quite a few breaks during that time. January, February and even March might only have 2 new episodes each.

lol, She'sSoHeavy755! I guess there is many Shamy fans who wants them together... However, considering who Sheldon and Amy are, it would have been pretty Out of Character for both of them. However, it was pretty In Character for Amy to actually try it out and finds out there is, as she puts it, ''Nope, nothing, never mind''! :p

Loved that last line btw! ^_^

Simply put, you'll have to wait 3 or 4 seasons for them to actually kiss... and the show's actual Finale for them to actually have sex (if they ever do! :p lol)

On a side note, I also loved the littles superhero challenges between Howard and Raj! Especcially the spider thing: Good victory for Rajesh! ^_^

While we discuss the episodes, let's make polls, shall we?

POLL 1

What is the best number?

a) 73

B) 5318008

c) something else (explain why! :p )

POLL 2

Who is the hero and who is the sidekick between Raj and Howard?

By the way, I vote B) for the first one and Raj for the second one! ^_^

Did not like this episode at all. Not a laugh in the entire show.

OK, I admit I don't really care for Amy but 3 girls in a bar is not part of the show and it went down hill from there.

If I had just started watching TBBT with season 4...... I think I would have stopped by now.

The only funny moments were with Raj, Howard, and Leonard. Sigh. However, it was nice to see the boys together. I really did not care for the girls hanging out. Quit trying to appeal to the female audience that way! We honestly don't care about the girls (except maybe Penny).

And while I'm not a Shamy fan, the holding hands did receive an "aww" from me (I blame my latent love for Blossom). They really redeemed the moment by having her drop his hand and say "never mind". I do hope for a friendship over a romance between those two. ^_^

Yeah Shamy doesn't work. It actually makes Sheldon look gay because their relationship is like a typical frigid relationship gay men have with women. If you have to make him gay make his boyfriend be Will Wheaton. That would be fun to watch.

I liked the episode, it was very varied with the characters and luckly enough it wasn't centered on sheldon wich by that is already a good episode. They may still be geeks or nerds since they were fighting for who is the hero and who the sidekick but the fact that there are girls in the show improves it with Bernadette and Amy hanging out with Penny who is partly nerd by time spent with the guys in previous seasons.

I liked the consideration of the lines: "nope, nothing, never mind" compared with the "all right the cat is alive", women just doesn't feel anything with sheldon nor leonard's mom neither Amy lol. Anyway I found the episode funny.

Yeah, the woman's presence, I don't mind, especcially since, in a way, both Bernadette and Amy are in the ''geek'' side. And there were Leslie back in the first seasons... I really miss that girl, she was fun, especcially the way she was picking against Sheldon!

Althought I'd like that they'd add a more geeky girl in the gang! By that I mean not only a science girl, like Bernadette and Amy, but a girl who likes geeky stuff such as video games and sci-fi, etc. I mean, even Amy called Star Trek ''cheap science-fiction'' this week! Seriously, the most geeky one in that sence of the term, that would almost be Penny: She's awesome at Halo, she quoted Star Trek a few times, even Star Wars once! :p

Just saying! But anyway, in the end I don't mind adding a few girls to the show, it evens things up! As long as the show stays about guys fighting for being a hero or a sidekick, stuff like that! ^_^

I just don't want this show to turn into a girly show. I have lots of girly shows that I can and do watch. I really want this show to remain boy-nerdy. *shrugs* Now, Leslie is awesome, and she can be in every episode because I love her. And I also love Leonard's mum and Sheldon's mum - and Penny is great, too.

Really, I'm fine with all the girls being in the show (although, I'm not a fan of Bernadette); however, I am just not a fan of many scenes with just the girls. One scene every once in a while is okay, I guess. But in this episode, all I did was wait for the Howard/Raj scenes. =/

Overall an enjoyable episode. It was a pretty good balance with all of the characters except for Leonard, I think he was a bit under used in this episode. I like the female nerd additions. I think Amy is a very good character and she really does confuse Sheldon a lot. Bernadette is a hottie and I love when they have her on.

This episode was really good. there was a great balance among the characters and scenes. considering it has been a while since BBT showed signs for turning into "the Sheldon show", I think it's a good thing that they are regaining the balance. I also loved the shot where Sheldon and Amy held their hands together. I don't care whether if their relationship develops into a romance or not, but I do really like that weird (funny) bond between them. It's something very close to the soul of BBT. nerdy and abnormal.

Line of the Week: Sheldon re. Amy: "I think it's illegal to spade a human!"

These two are from another dimension so if a kiss or coitus is to be introduced, it better not be

of this earth! Exchanging bodily fluids is below their intellect !

Hope Howard and Raj are OK after playing playing never-ending Nascar!

Keep up with the laugh therapy. We need it !

hey, just signed up today, my image verification code was:

buctices rock

how does captcha get away with such obviously deliberate shenanigans?

anyway, I think Sheldon slammed the door in Chuck Norris' face in haste.

Said Shelly, "Chuck Norris spelled backwards is, 'Sirron Kcuhc'.

wrong Dr. Cooper.

Chuck Norris spelled backwards is "Another Fist".

Funny episode! Especially when Amy called Star trek cheap Science fiction. Funny for considering ST Next Gen was one of the most expensive shows to make at the time.

While I am not the biggest fan of Amy she is a wonderful foil to Sheldon.

I don't think that relationshsips are taking over the show but I do think that relationships are what all the guys want so it is going to be a present topic.

Even Sheldon, but his idea of relationship differs to what most of us understand it to be.

Hello, I have question...what means bloviating "Bafoon" or similar...I dont know the spelling...Rash is talking to Howard during the wrestling at the end of the Episode. :) bloviate is clear but Bafoon...what is it? Its in the last 3 min of the Episode.

Is there a special thread for questions like this?
