The Big Bang Theory [04/24/2014] - "The Anything Can Happen Recurrence"

Sheldon: So, we're just randomly choosing a restaurant without researching it online?
Penny: Yep.
Sheldon: Great. You know, this is how Anything Can Happen Thursday turns into It Won't Stop Coming Up Friday.

Maybe it's something about the way she was dressed or had her hair up, but Penny has completely lost her cuteness.

I am clearly an annoying person.


I sent a text to my family pointing out that I could say the same about myself. They agreed!

Either there's way too much to watch Thursday nights or this clearly wasn't one of the better episodes (I thought it was a middle of the pack episode, seen better and worse). Not a lot of buzz going on in here about it.

Like you said, pretty much a middle of the road episode (although I did find Amy in the schoolgirl uniform funny).

Not much going on per say but a pleasant and humorous diversion.

On the other hand, I just watched the first three episodes of Friends with Better Lives and promptly dumped the SP.

Big Bang Theory was head and shoulders about that.

It's because she's married now and let herself go.

The thing with Amy in the schoolgirl uniform is it really does nothing. I don't even think Sheldon would realize why that is erotic, and I would think by now Amy would realize that as well. So I didn't really find it funny because to me it just looked like a writer's trick to get a one liner from Sheldon.

You are a better man than I. I didn't even make it through all of the first episode.

I had banked the first three episodes and even though the ratings haven't been good, I decided to take a look last night.

You're right in that the pilot was terrible but since I had next two episodes recorded and I had the time, I watched to see if it got better.

It did, a little bit, but not enough to keep watching, IMO.

It just shows again that Amy is really desperate for Sheldon's attention and will try just about anything... So if it works for Howard, it might just work for Sheldon.

And maybe it worked for Amy.

I'm enjoying FWBL. It's not great, but the characters are well defined and are set up to have some interesting interactions in the future. And it's got Brooklyn Decker, so what's not to like?

I thought poor Leonard got a raw deal. He has been hearing Penny bitch and moan constantly and not said a word, and when she asks him, she gets pissed at him for not lying to her? Pretty petty, Penny!

Maybe. That's part of the joke, though. She likes to complain but doesn't want to hear anyone else (hence her comment to Sheldon). However, part of the job of a long term couple is to listen to the other partner bitch and moan when they need it.

That's what made it funny, her totally missing the mark.

I enjoyed it, but had to watch it at a friends. For some reason it didn't record on my TiVo.

Amy is willing to try anything to get a little attention. She really doesn't have a clue about human relationships, as shown by her comments throughout the series.

This episode proves the writers are flagging and as this is going for another 3 seasons at least they need to start coming up with some new ideas. For me, I think it's always fun when the parents are involved and so I'd love to meet AFF's mother, who we've heard about but never seen (unless I'm forgetting) and also get Raj's parents over in the flesh as well as, Brian George is so funny and it seems a waste to just have him on a laptop screen.

We saw Amy's mother briefly when Sheldon and Amy did a video chat with her early on in their relationship to prove that she was really dating Sheldon.

That does ring a bell actually, still I can see there being a lot more scope for fun stuff with that relationship.

I like episodes with Penny and Sheldon. Their relationship is so unlikely but magical. I am surprised that Sheldon hasn't insisted on a 'Relationship Agreement' with Penny. I can understand AFF being jealous of Penny. What woman couldn't be jealous of a set a knockers like that! And Penny and Sheldon will always have 'Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty' along with memories of Pennys' butt tattoo.

I have found myself mentally instigating 'Relationship Agreements' with friends and relatives to better understand what my relationship requirements, expectations, and responsibilities are. I don't formerly tell them about the 'Agreement' but tacitly get them to agree to the different parts.

Interesting posting on another website. Not related to this episode or my posting above. I just ran into it when I was looking for what Pennys' tattoo was of.

Yup, it has date night on every third Thursday of every month (4th if it's a month with 5 Thursdays) something like that

OMG, I should write up a post: "Writing Faults In 'Writing Faults In Penny'" I thought it was going to be a well thought out discussion of actual writing faults, but it's just a bunch of loosely connected guesses at stuff that doesn't really hold together that well. Looks like it was written by a junior-high school kid. If you haven't read it, don't waste your time.
