The Big Bang Theory 5/16/13 "The Bon Voyage Reaction"

Kind of a middling BBT episode, IMO. And as season finales go, well, not much of one, IMO.

But they FINALLY cured Raj of his affliction. And great! Not much more to say about that.

Kinda don't care about Leonard and Penny for some reason.

He was cured in his apt. while talking to Penny. He wasn't drinking while talking to her. They celebrated his being cured.

Did I see a Sonos over Leonard's shoulder in Penny's apartment?

So it said afterward during the credits "If you're a true Big Bang Theory fan you're in luck because you can see a special episode----" and the TiVo cut it off!

Anyone have any idea what the next bit was?

So glad they finally cured Raj of that ridiculous quirk. That was by far the best part of the episode.

It was the second to last scene. Penny went to visit Raj at his apartment to console him. Raj ended up talking to Penny for the entire scene before realizing that he hadn't had a drink since the night before.

The final scene was Raj at Penny's apartment talking to all the girls without end (literally - he talked over the entire closing credits).

When Penny was shopping for the party I was glad to see that she bought some Shiner beer.

That scene looked strange to me. I couldn't tell if it was a sound stage or a real store. It looked totally fake (like a studio), but if it was, wow, talk about a ton of set up just for one short shot. Setting up all those products, the booze, cooler with beer, wine racks with wine. I know it's a successful show and they can afford to do stuff like that, but it sure seems like a lot of work just for one shot that isn't normally part of the show (say, for instance like the comic book store which repeats once in a while).

It was probably all the booze they bought for the season wrap party, and just worked it into the episode. Or the episode is how they justified buying all that alcohol.

I agree, that was a very "Meh" finale. The Raj and his woman stuff got old pretty fast. She annoys me as does their storyline. I hope they don't bring her back.

Lame that they did yet another "character goes on a long trip!" for the finale. Zzzzzzz.

Overall a very weak episode.

I'm glad they gave Raj the ability to talk to women. That was really limiting to his character and had gotten old.

All the beer brands that I noticed were real brands so all the booze was probably real.

Man, I'm an old. I immediately knew the joke reference of Sheldon's "white zone" rant.

I was disappointed that Penny didn't grab the Tito's vodka off the shelf but I was happy to see it there.

I was also glad to see Raj cured. I sure hope it sticks next season.
Raj: I haven't had a drink since last night.
Penny: You're talking to me.
Raj: I am. And, now I'm crying for a whole different reason.

When I was in college, I was co-props person for a show that required a pizza. That pizza very literally came onto the stage, then cleared off the stage and into our stomachs.

Thanks for that. Not sure what happened, but missed that last bit.
