Meh... I thought Sheldon's drunken antics were too over the top.

The stuff with Leonard's childhood issues were pretty dark for a sitcom like BBT.

Kinda surprised I couldn't find the video on you tube by searching "Physicist Melts Down"

They had the "Nerd Fight" video up during the episode.

I liked the call out to people complaining about the laugh track.

Anyone else notice that Raj spoke in front of Penny at the awards banquet? Is that the first time on the show he spoke in her presence?

They were drinking so they can use that as an explanation

Between this and the prank on Kripke Sheldon must be pretty close to that Nobel Prize for him to still have a job.

Noticed that too, thought it was a bit odd.

They had wine at the table. Raj can talk to and around women when he's drinking. Usually it only takes him one drink to transform.

^ Yup, last night was nothing unusual. There was an episode where he just slammed one drink and was talking it up.

Right. While the way Sheldon reacts to alcohol was over the top last night when compared to reality, it is in keeping with the way Raj opens up after one drop of the stuff. Just a dash of absurdism thrown in.

ETA: I was just itching today to declare myself the William Shatner of public defenders. No good opportunities, though.

I love this show, I got caught up on this show in just the past few weeks, I dont know how I missed it. I love it now, Pretty good episode though I though last weeks was stronger. I did like Sheldon with Penny Picking out an outfit and the youtube video.

wasnt there an ep where he was able to talk to a girl until he realized his beer was non alcoholic? so he doesnt really have to be drunk, its just the feather that makes him fly.
