Big Bang Theory 1.3.13 The Egg Salad Equivalency

So... what are we going to bicker about this week?
Penny's hair was soft and curly and looked fairly clean, she didn't drink at all, and she was dressed nice- there was not a pair of skanky sweat pants or a bare midriff in sight.

Maybe the glasses will trigger some interesting discussion

You realize they were not even real? She should be arrested for felonious eyewear usage.

I think I would prefer Leonard give Alex a shot. I think she's better looking and her intellect makes her more compatible.

Unless Leonard really does a thing for a woman less intellectually stimulating because he wants a woman the opposite of his mother. (observation by Sheldon based on "Needy Baby Greedy Baby.")

Yeah, but that was mitigated by the fact that they ALL got called into the principal's HR office...

Kinda funny that it appeared they had to force a situation to work AFF and Bernie in the show!

Loved the giant Jenga, although I agree it would be a nightmare to store if I didn't have a huge studio to put it in!

neither are Leonard's, one of my biggest peeves

I watched Middleman over the weekend, dubdub has lenses in the beginning of the series and they're gone by the end of the series.

I don't think they can do another round of Leonard and Penny break up... Leonard dates someone else, they break up.. then we're left with another season of "will Leonard and Penny get back together." Or if Leonard stays with Alex, we have yet anoter installment of "Nerd Friends" and another "Ross and Rachel" plot.

As much as Alex is more right for Leonard in the "real world", I just don't think it's going to happen in the show, or else the Penny character will be really bitter and may turn into a sloppy, high haired, drunk. The only way I see it happening is if Penny leaves Leonard which frees him to pursue Alex.

It has been a long time since I actually laughed out loud at a show. When Sheldon called the HR lady a slave I almost feel out of my chair laughing. And did you notice Penny giving the over the glasses glower at the end (although hers was more of a sexy cute look)? Priceless.

I think Alex was more of a "test the Leonard-Penny relationship" thing than any kind of real thing for Leonard. It's common in TV sitcoms. I think Friends did this about 100 times with Ross-Rachel, and HIMYM does this just about every episode.

But perhaps, this is where Raj finally gets his cajones in order and goes for Alex. Maybe that's where they are going.

Leonard's look when Penny first put on the glasses was awesome. They *really* turned him on!

I loved the idea of giant Jenga, but the pieces were the wrong proportion, and that totally made the concept unbelievable, totally ruining the gag for me!

Loved Penny in the glasses. Loved giant jenga. Alsex and Lenard are more compatible and Penny Sheldon should get together.

Not a whole lot of laughs. A few but over all meh.

Except for Penny in the glasses. Perfection.

I enjoyed the whole episode. All the little laughs added up to a nice fun time. Loved the giant Jenga and when Leonard mentioned 'mini twister'.

And yes, the look over the glasses was the best shot this season.

They may have even been her real glasses.

This shot taken in 2010.

I really liked this episode. I laughed quite a lot!

Now that I have that out of the way everyone can feel free to fixate on some little issue and then argue with mdougie for the next hundred messages.

OMG she looks so smart and hawt!
I think the Leonard/Alex angle needs to develop, the show is better IMHO when Leonard and Penny are in a state of flux.

Instead of dredging up the "Howard in Space" episode thread, I though you all might like this detailed video tour of the real ISS -- it's worth every second of all 25 minutes:

Ooops, sorry. It was the right word, wrong spelling. I admit to being a lazy speller.

You know I have thought about starting a thread about spotting glasses with no lenses in movies and TV. It annoys the heck out of me.

There have been discussions about this scattered in various threads.

A lot (and by that I mean most that I have seen) of people think it is spelled the way you did.

I don't know. The glasses are crooked, which is a clear indication of her alcoholism.
