    I don't remember the programming from the satellite dish that Howard was messing with, but I don't believe it was "wild feed" material, so is this show inadvertently promoting the theft of satellite TV (a la FTA and decryption hacks\IKS?)? :)
    They should have been doing true FTA of legal stuff like NASA channel on EchoStar 7.. I mean they were out there for an astronomical event (the meteor shower). ;)
    I think this part was there to just show how geeky they are, but made me realize how of one I am too. lol

    That would be an interesting call-back, but if they were going for that, I would think that they would have shone a brighter light on that with the dialogue.

    I don't see how your suggestion would have made sense or been funny. Just because they were high doesn't mean they would mistake random crap in Howard's bag for brisket.

    I know some people don't like Raj at all, but him doing Leonard with his American accent, and busting on Howard at the end about sleeping with his cousin was hilarious to me. The Penny/Sheldon stuff, though, was much funnier and more entertaining than the guys getting high, etc.

    I laughed more at this episode than I have in a while, though I've always really enjoyed the show.

    Some of the comments of those that don't really care for BBT could easily be my comments with regard to HIMYM. I just don't find that show funny any more.

    Sheldon: "When was your last menstrual period?"

    Penny: Something angry that I can't recall

    Sheldon: "In progress."


    Funny.

    I think they're both hilarious.

    Anyone know if the actor who plays Raj, if his natural accent is the American sounding one or the Indian sounding one?


    (For instance, Masi Oki, the guy who plays Hiro on Heroes, has an American accented normal speaking voice, not the "engrish" voice he does on the show.)

    He's English, but I don't know when he came to America (he went to college here)...so I'd tentatively say "neither."

    Good question. He was born in London and went to college here in the States. Might have an accent but I doubt it's as pronounced as he makes it on the show.

    I actually thought the vanity card at the end was the funniest thing about the entire show.

    Oh god, don't even get me started! I'd rather watch every episode of BBT 100 times then suffer through one episode of HIMYM.

    Cause of injury? Lack of adhesive ducks.

    (or something like that)

    I think it was "Adhesive Duck Deficiency" like the episode title, wasn't it?

    No, in fact that's what I was expecting him to say, but he didn't phrase it like that.

    I tweeted about it right after they said it. It was "lack of adhesive ducks".

    Sheldon is Fonzie. Leonard is Richie. Raj and Howard are Potsie and Ralph. Who is Penny?
