The Big Bang Theory - 11/29/12 - The Parking Spot Escalation

This episode was hilarious. Especially Penny at the end.

I like Sheldon trying to sell a laptop with contact with genitals.

It would have been much better without the laugh track.

(not a spoiler...)
Spoiler:



Poor Raj again just got one or two lines. He should just phone it in.

You know, last night was the first time the laugh track annoyed me on this show. I could not UN-HEAR it. I realize this show is filmed in front of a live audience, but the laugh track just seemed overly orchestrated, and maybe too loud? Dunno.

Otherwise, loved the episode.

The local affiliate had audio problems. The voice track was completely silent here in Orlando.

Yes, they were quite prominent in this episode and I thought they were both hysterical.

Penny threatening AFF with ripping out her remaining pubes was awesome.

What kind of car did Howard get? What was the mini laptop Sheldon was using in his parking spot?

I thought the car looked like a mini cooper. Not sure of the model.

At least you had the laugh track to know when there were jokes.

The first scene in which it was shown I though I say the Rav4 emblem on the side of the car. But I just checked and it wasn't a Rav4, the emblem said "all4." So I dunno.

AFF: "What do you think?"

Sheldon: "I think you're high on paint fumes. And, boy, that's a lot of band-aids."

Loved that exchange.

It was definitely a Mini. As far as I know, there are only two different body styles of Mini, and this certainly wasn't the Clubman. So it was just a regular Mini Cooper, with probably the highest trim level.

Howard should have tried logic with Sheldon.

I.E., the parking space is owned by the University and lent to Sheldon for his use.
Since the space is owned by the University, it is within their rights to take it away and lend it to someone else.

Still, a very funny episode.
I also did not pick up on the fact that was Sheldon's laptop until Howard pointed it out.

I didn't pick up on it either, but it was the first thing my wife noticed.

I wish my university provided reserved spots for us. (Even faculty don't get ones, to actually get a reserved spot takes some effort, and is pretty pricey. Even non-reserved I'm getting more and more annoyed at how much it's costing these days.)

If you look closely, you can see Howard has on some flesh colored briefs. It's pretty well hidden, but it's there.

Also, I was surprised in the way Howard pushed Sheldon with the car. I knew it was heading that way, and I was looking for clues that the car wasn't under it's own power (I don't think the studio or insurance company would allow two actors to do that for real). I couldn't see any wires or other hidden mechanisms to make the car move and push Sheldon like that. So I wonder if it was "real" or "memorex"?

Now of course, any one of us could do that for real and nobody would get hurt, but this is on the set of a show. It also didn't look like a stunt driver or stunt Sheldon.

It probably had an electric motor and some kind of restrictor on it to keep it under a max speed.

Cal has spaces with nameplates for the Nobel Laureates.

You were paying way too much attention to Howard's junk.
