    Sheldon is such an ass.

    PS: The forum software censored out how I really wanted to end that last word.

    And another episode where the girls' group is funnier than the guys.

    I think the reason I find AFF more appealing than Sheldon: she honestly seems interested in other people, and not just as some objective observer.

    I'll admit that AFF was pretty funny this episode. And she didn't act and talk like a robot. Not a coincidence. :)

    'Like a sexy toddler' was the funniest line in a long time.

    I enjoyed the episode.

    And to read Chuck's card at the end was funny. "A monkey with a monkey on his back."

    I actually thought this was a hilarious episode!

    I loved seeing AFF loosen up quite a bit, and loved seeing how uncomfortable Sheldon was getting (and how much the rest of the girls were loving it).

    The only meh part was the Leonard/Pria/Sheldon parts.

    Pria showed her true colors when she threatened to break up with Leonard if he didn't sign the amended roommate agreement. I know we're supposed to like Leonard and all but how quickly he agreed to sign it made him look so p*ssy whipped with little to no self esteem.

    The card was a riotous capper to an already funny episode.

    And I liked seeing Pria dissecting the Roommate Agreement and shutting down Sheldon.

    Gee, and my favorite part was that Sheldon used the actual correct self-destruct sequence from Kirk (though his computer had Star Trek: Next Generation graphics).

    I didn't think he was that quick to sign it. He initially didn't want to sign at all and only gave in at the very last second when she said she'd break up with him. By the end of the episode, Leonard and Pria were fighting about it in the background as they went to the ending credits.

    I'm thinking that relationship is done fairly soon here.

    I agree, it seems like a set up to the beginning of the end.

    No he didn't. :)
    IIRC, he used Spock's authentication code.
    And he didn't use the full triple authentication code sequence.
    (Of course, if Sheldon was on the Enterprise, he'd probably say "Of course I'm the Captain, the First Officer, and the Science Officer".)

    Yes, it was the wrong computer graphic but an LCARS graphic is probably easier for the prop department to mock up.
    [/geek mode]

    And Priya being a lawyer, should realize that the new agreement can be nullified on the grounds it was signed under duress.

    Leonard had 45 seconds to explain 3 things to Sheldon, but he choked and failed: 1) If you do this, you'll have crossed a line and there's no turning back. 2) I'll move out. 3) You'll lose your only friends.

    I know it's not an especially original thought for these threads, but the problem with the show (or just me) is that it constantly pushes things too far over the top with Sheldon's antics for them to still be funny. There's still a lot I enjoy about the show, but I'm starting to dread knowing I have to waste mental energy looking past Sheldon every episode to still get a net gain of being entertained.

    My though as well. Of course they didn't go that way because I think Priya is on the way out.
