Leonard: You call that a glow stick? *Pulls out a Lightsaber* This is a glow stick!
A few laughs, but overall, the weakest episode of the season so far, IMHO, fruitloops!
Is it wrong that I would kind of like to have the nickname "fruitloops"?
It was good to see Sheldon get his comeuppance and bring him down to reality even just a little bit.
But really a blown opportunity, since he wins in the end and triumphantly returns to his natural self, with (still) no indication of why anybody would hang out with such a repulsive person. And no real indication of why Leonard would cave so thoroughly and so quickly, except that 22 minutes had passed so it was time to return to the status quo.
I really had high hopes from the Guide Data description that the episode would truly address one of the biggest problems I have with the show, but oh well.
Totally, totally, agree.
The show could have turned a corner, but no, nothing actually changed.
Yeah...really weak overall.
John Galecki had a nice writeup in the LA Times the other day. The print article included a pic of the "glowstick" scene, apparently shot during rehearsal.
Not enough AFF.
This amused me:
Yup, run of the mill average nerd who is a published physicist.
I kind of thought the yoyo story and other references to his childhood explain Leonard to some extent. He probably had no friends in school and it makes it hard for him to see Sheldon friendless now--even tho he brings it on himself. Plus Penny kind of asked him to cave.
I don't think everyone else thinks he's as repulsive as you do.
I certainly do not.
I think he is adorable!
I think the writers write him oddly sometimes. Not only with their version of repulsive Sheldon, but with caricature Sheldon and infantilized Sheldon as well.
But then everyone on the show is a cartoon character of themselves at one point or another, so I sort of dismiss their missteps from my thinking.
I think they try too hard to feature Sheldon rather than allow him to be part of an ensemble. Sure he's the most popular but look what happened to Fonzie.
Sheldon/Jim deserve much better writing than what they get.
I do not either. I have a friend who has a lot of Sheldon's traits. Just not so cartoony since she is not in a sitcom. I love hanging with her. Her Sheldon like traits are a source of laughter.
I used to work with a guy who's the same way. He's a great guy but a total nutcase and really hard to deal with much of the time. Yet after only knowing him a few months and inviting him to my wedding more out of courtesy and as an announcement than anything, he came... and gave us $100 cash.
Sheldons are real.
We certainly are.
This was the highest-rated episode of The Big Bang Theory ever. It's pretty rare that its audience is still growing this far into its run.
Syndication is bringing in a whole new crop.
This is very true. We've told many friends and family how much we enjoy it, and they're catching it in syndication, then making sure they watch it first-run on CBS...
The ONLY reason we started watching the show, was while on a vacation down in Cabo a few months ago, there were like 2-3 channels in English. One of them showed like 10 eps of Big Bang a day.
So we watched it.
Now we have seen each ep like 10 times
