    This episode was kind of a let down after the last few which I thought were great. It wasn't bad but it wasn't really that engaging. Although I did enjoy the secondary story about Raj and the pills. That was some side effect!

    I loved the part with the 3-way chess. I see they're finally going to get rid of the dumb "can't talk to girls unless he's drinking" thing. Good.

    WAAAAAY too much Penny, AFF, and Blond Squeaky. At least I was able to FF through this episode in 10 minutes due to that.

    I think you're counting your chickens a little too soon. Those pills are obviously not the solution.

    How long do you think it will be before ThinkGeek has Three Person Chess as a product?

    I'm still waiting on Mystic Warlords of Ka'ah.

    True that.

    But, my interpretation (and hope) is that the writers have decided that Raj has finally become strongly motivated to do something about the problem, and I suspect that they'll have him succeed eventually. They've milked his "selective muteisim" for too long, and they need to move on. I see this as a sign that the writers have seen that.

    While I still really like how the character of AFF is developing, this time out the interaction of the three girls was just too awkward and weird. The plot point of Bernadette being a "mole" to prop up Penny and get dirt on Pria was just too over-the-top and bizarre. I didn't find it particularly funny.

    This is the first time I remember any character referring to Bernadette's "ample bosom" (when AFF suggested she hide a recording device in it). I was wondering if it was ever going to be mentioned, that Melissa Rauch is conspicuously well stacked! :up: :)

    Wait, chess was basically reinvented entirely from scratch and you think they weren't playing Jenga right?

    But they weren't trying to reinvent Jenga, just play it. If there can be whole conversations about how the self-destruct sequence was perfect last episode, I think it's valid to point out that Leonard didn't make a full row when he pulled and placed on his move. Just saying.

    But they said they were reinventing chess. If they said, "Hey! We've reinvented Jenga!" then it would be fine. But no, they had to start stacking pieces on the top before completing the previous layer.

    I also wondered why they were playing Jenga wrong. Remember, Sheldon re-invented Chess. Leonard would enjoy that. Pria likely would not approve.

    What were they doing wrong in Jenga?

    Leonard pulled a piece out of the stack, but when he went to put it on top, instead of completing a row of three, he put it cross-ways across a row that only had two in it. You are supposed to complete each row as you build upwards, which then gives rows to play from as it gets higher.

    I am more amused that Leonard beat Sheldon at his own game.

    I like Penny and Amy, and feel like they do add to the show. But I'm really not feeling Squeaky Fromme. That character either needs some development or a fast-moving bus coming her way, IMO.

    The whole 'Leonard still loves Penny and Penny still loves Leonard' thing speaks for itself so I don't need to say a thing there - sooner or later, Pria will be gone. Or maybe, after Squeaky gets hit by a bus, they can match her up with Howard. That would be funny-creepy-funny....yeah, creepy.

    I think the problem is the girls work well as a group together, but when they're split up into the Howard/Bernadette/Leonard/Priya group, there aren't any funny characters there and it's just a bore. I applaud them for trying to mix things up, but this experiment was a failure.
    Sheldon should have used the jet pack.

    A bit of a lackluster episode but the vanity card was great,
