The Big Bang Theory [02/06/2014] - "The Locomotive Manipulation"

"Mmm. Grape juice that burns."
Amy: I deserve romance, and I didn't know how else to make it happen.
Sheldon: Well, if you want romance, then let's have romance! Oh, look, there's wine. Mmm. Grape juice that burns. Uh, now let's gaze into each other's eyes, hmm? You blinked I win. Let's see. What's next? Oh, kissing's romantic.
Amy: That was nice.
Sheldon: Good.

I hope they move the Sheldon/Amy relationship forward. It is getting as boring as Raj not being able to talk to women was.

Interesting that they couldn't give sheldon an "equal" (at least for trains) without also making him mentally "off".

I am going to be very upset if Raj doesn't go on a date/multiple dates with that Vet.

First, because he deserves it after all this time, and 2nd because I really like that actress.

This was a blah episode for me. I hope the rest of the season will be better than this.

Lost. Malcolm in the Middle. NCIS. Tons of other stuff I can't remember right now. She has been around a long time.

And "Switched at Birth." That's where I first saw her.

Had to look her up while I was watching the show. She was the "kid" on Lost. She sure has grown up!

How'd they make the train seem to move at the end?

Thought it was a great episode.

I do hope they keep the vet around for Raj. It's about time.

I laughed at Bernadette trying to get Sheldon to come back to the table and it ended with him inviting his new friend. I didn't check credits but was he the guy on the new Kristie show that is playing her long lost son?

Me too. They don't have to get married or anything, but forward is needed.

She is a cutie. Hope she becomes a regular. I don't really find any of the women on the show that attractive anymore. So it would be nice to have her on.

Tania Raymonde certainly looks different from when she was in Lost. But Kaley Cuoco looks totally different from

Very funny episode. I did LOL at the "grape juice that burns" line.

I didn't think Tania Raymonde looked that much different on "Lost"; certainly not like the difference between "Malcolm in the Middle"--where she actually was a kid--and now.

She was also on the MTV's late, lamented "Death Valley", the one with the cops in LA fighting zombies, vampires, etc. As I was looking that one up to ensure I had the right name, I noticed it also starred Caity Lotz, currently of "Arrow".

Now the question is, can she be funny? I didn't see her in the other sitcoms, so I don't know.

She really is a beauty.

I remember Death Valley as being hilarious, though I don't remember if her character was. I vaguely recall her playing it straight, which was good for the role. I *best* remember, for what will become obvious reasons later in this sentence, the late season episode where she went undercover as a vampire prostitute--and was correspondingly scantily clad at one point.

Just checked on Amazon; that would be episode 8. Also, the show is now available on DVD (sadly not blu-ray), and also available as a digital purchase, both SD and HD. I highly recommend it if you like silly (but good) comedies. Maybe think Brooklyn Nine-Nine with vampires and zombies, or possibly Cops--if it were intentionally funny--with vampires and zombies, since Death Valley is filmed in the mockumentary style.

I'm definitely considering buying the digital HD version of the series, although I'd much prefer Blu-Ray so as not to eat up space on my TiVo.

Yes, he is. And he's a big part of the reason I quit watching that show. I think he's terribly miscast, to the point I had to kill the SP. Well, that and the show stinks...

If you aren't watching the show, why are you here talking about it? Just so you can threadcrap? That seems a bit rude.

I liked Sheldon's reaction to the kiss. He decided that he liked it. It was still an awkward kiss, as he doesn't have any experience at it. I'm glad he invited Amy to go with him, so it was a couple thing, rather than Sheldon just having a good time separately.

I was surprised that Bernadette and Howard wanted to be with Sheldon and Amy for Valentine's Day. I'm guessing that was more of a Bernadette thing than an Amy thing. Amy is getting further away from her geeky self the more time she spends with the girls. She is still geeky, but she isn't as awkward as she used to be.

Because this is a thread for a different show?

I could see Sheldon kissing her to make his point, but when he put his arm around her, I thought, Ok, we are going to start to see a new Sheldon.

But then he rated the banjo player the best part of the weekend, so maybe not.

Maybe the banjo player was a better kisser, had a waist, and didn't think practical science was more important than theoretical physics.

Off on another tangent, I've met folks like their awkward train dude, I cringed most of the way through that part.


However I do think the fact that Sheldon kissed Amy and didn't recoil in horror does show that their relationship is progressing.
