    Really laughed a lot at both storylines. Excellent episode.

    I thought I would hate the girls exploring the world of comic books, but as soon as they started arguing about Thor's hammer it got perfect.

    And the guys posing for self-portraits was priceless.

    Yes, really good episode for a change!

    I think what appealed to me about this episode is that it didn't really rely on the stereotypical rolls that they have the characters usually play. Yes, there were hints here and there, but overall the rolls seemed fresh.

    I agree it seemed rather different. I thought the guys were far less interesting than the girls as far as dialog and story, but the costumes were awesome. The girls were just plain funny.

    Good episode. I thought the girls plot was infinitely better than the guys. their appearance in the Comic Book store, the way they eased into the argument abut Thor. It was all very well done.

    I was also impressed the Vasquez Rocks backdrops.

    I loved it. Laughed out loud a few times and knew they had hit the mark when they girls got into the discussion about Thor's hammer. Oh yeah.

    The "sexy dancing" (esp. Sheldon) was the funniest part of the episode.

    The comic book shop stuff was awful (really, that kind of stereotyping became outdated around the 90s), but once the girls got home it was great.

    And at least the felony was not committed by Penny!

    I loved that the car thieves were getting excited by the GPS quizzes. :D

    Which makes no sense whatsoever, which is part of what makes it so funny.

    Because, really, nobody but Sheldon would get excited by the GPS quizzes. :D

    I laughed so hard I had to pause the TiVo and I startled the dog sleeping next to me and he barked at me. That was perfectly played.

    Exactly, it was totally incongruous, and that made me laugh.

    It was a great episode, I nearly spit my water out of my mouth because earlier yesterday I was in the car with a friend talking about GPS voices and I mentioned how funny it would be if Sheldon had one! lol

    Too bad Sheldon couldn't have gone as Wesley Crusher.

    Hits a little too close to home, does it?

    No, it actually doesn't. It's been decades since girls were rare in comic book shops.
