    We were very disappointed with BBT last night. As my daughter said, it was just gross.

    The first episode was ok, but the second one, we didn't even want to finish it (we did though).

    I don't remember it being so over the top sex jokes - a few innuendo here and there - but during the second episode, we felt very uncomfortable.

    We'll probably watch next week, but if it's more of the same, we'll probably stop watching.

    I watched it, I laughed, but I agree, the innuendo was WAY over the top.

    I still find the series to be enjoyable, but it's not nearly as intelligently witty as it once was. Being a bit of a geek, I really enjoyed the intellectual geekiness of the fist series. They've strayed from that to attact a wider audience and have been quite successful at that. It does water down the appeal to me, though. The trio of ladies added to the series have all been quite good and a welcome addition. Bernadette screaming at Raj, "I'M NICE TO EVERYBODY!!" was pretty funny.

    I didn't like the first episode that much, but I thought the second one was very funny. Anytime they explore one of Sheldon's neurosis, it's funny. And I don't know what this says about me, but I found Leonard and Pira's skyping really funny.

    And btw, I wish I could afford one, but I want their Alienware laptop!!

    I thought Howard and Raj trying out the cyber-kissing things was hilarious :D

    "I was trying to be playful!"

    "Can I say that I ruined you for white men?"

    I thought last night's shows were terrific. And there has been tons of innuendo in the show before.

    My favorite of the night.

    Amy: Kiss me where I have never been kissed.
    Sheldon: You mean like Salt Lake City?

    I skipped over virtually all of the Leonard/Pria bit. The rest was OK.

    Loved it! I found it hilarious (both eps). I also do love all the intellectual banter and hope to see more of that throughout the season.

    One thing where I was confused (quite possibly due to my memory problems) was with Raj talking around the attractive women. When and how did that take a turn?

    He was drinking most of the time. Although was he drinking when Bernadette came by his apartment by surprise?

    Oh he was? I didn't notice that. I remember thinking that, since he could only talk to the girls when he was drinking, something was weird - or I just forgot something from previously.

    Yeah, Raj had just opened a beer and took a sip before Bernadette knocked on the door.

    Seems like Raj has been drinking more and more. Maybe there's a "very special episode" in the works.... ;)

    My husband and I laughed so hard we cried at the kissing scene. It just kept going!

    Bernadette screaming at Raj was something else. She kept lapsing into "Howard's Mom" territory!

    Love the various ways Penny greeted Sheldon at the door.

    You know, I hadn't thought of that. Perhaps that's intentional. After all Howard is a moma's boy and maybe Howard's mom is teaching her to be more like her!! :)

    Yeah, no kidding. I thought the scene would of been funnier if he couldn't say anything and just shrugged his shoulders at Bernadette.

    Have you heard her do her impression of Howard's mom? It's dead-on. It actually reminds me she's an actress IRL! They could totally fire Mrs. Wollowitz and stick with Bernadette. (Although I'll bet it kills her throat.)

    I am surprised that the Parents Television Council hasn't jumped on this yet. A show airing during prime time when children can see it featuring a character so dependent on alcohol. Seems like it would be right up their alley.

    Or are they only wound up by sex?
