    I was afraid that Penny and Leonard were going to get back together. Thankfully that looks like it's not the case.

    This episode wasn't that funny, imo. From the dummy Penny had in her apartment at the beginning to the Sheldon-clone computer date at the end, there wasn't much memorable to last til next season.

    I thought this was one of the funniest episodes in a long time. I was LMAO through the whole thing.

    Was this in fact the season finale then? I thought I'd heard it was, but they didn't announce it in the immediate promos and the guide info didn't list it as such either.

    I thought the Directv guide listed that it was the season finale. I may have confused it with all the other finales going on.

    Yes it was the season finale.

    I liked it. I can't wait to see more from Sheldon's new "girlfriend"! The jokes the others make at their expense are gonna be great :)

    It'll also be interesting with Sheldon growing a little as a character. All he's really seemed to learn is "bazinga", but not very well.

    Blossom's schtick was a little forced. It didn't seem to flow as naturally as Sheldon's.

    Yeah, I thought it was very robotic. I hope that changes if she's still there next season.

    I think her problem is that she has to act, whereas Jim Parson can just read his lines in his normal voice. ;)

    Slightly more seriously, it seemed like she was doing a Sheldon impression. Which, I think, would be very difficult for anybody but Jim Parsons to pull off, since it really is just a slight exaggeration of his natural demeanor.

    :up: Yeah, I couldn't stop cracking up. (Well, ok, I stopped for a minute when Lenard tried to get back with Leslie Winkle. That was just painful)

    I thought it was funny, especially Penny's expressions when her date would say something dumb, like every time he opened his mouth.

    Yeah, her date, while not very original, was very very funny to me.

    Loved when Leonard showed up drunk at Penny's door expecting sex.

    Yeah, that works for guys....not.

    Well, HE wasn't all that funny. But her reactions were hysterical.

    "You RUINED me! Before I met you, I never would have known how STUPID he was!" :D

    I enjoyed how they added the downstairs neighbor lady's reaction. "Yee haw!" :p

    It wouldn't hurt to add in one or two neighbors into the cast next season.

    yes, I hope the writers put off them getting back to together for a long time. The show flows better when Leonard has a personality not tied to a relationship.

    Loved it when Penny although in a drunken stupor, was aware enough to warn Sheldon to wear his noise-canceling headphones. :)

    I must've not paid attention. How'd Penny ruin women for Leonard...he can only now be attracted to hot girls? ;)

    I loved how even drunk, Leonard couldn't shut off the science geek in him. He was drunk enough to throw an empty liquor bottle down the elevator shaft but he still calculated how far it fell by how long it took. :p
