Penny's reaction at the end was perfect. I have a friend who never would talk about those kind of things, but one drunken night he opened up and that is how we all reacted. haha

Yeah, finally they're transitioning Sheldon to slightly more normal. I hope we see them smooshing theiir genitals together. It's about time someone confronted him directly about sex.

I also like that they're shaking things up in Sheldon's work world as well.

Hilarious episode. Loved Howard and Raj's sub-plot.

It was good to Kripke again. He was always a better nemesis than Leslie Winkle.

I liked the 3D printer subplot as that's exactly the kind of stuff I would do with one.

Ah, Dragon Tattoo....classic early 2000's forum troll type. How I've missed thee.


That being said I loved Penny's reaction and the 3-D printer subplot.

I also enjoyed how Bernadette laid down the law with Howard.

Probably not the funniest episode, but I definitely liked the character development with Sheldon and the other story line with the 3D printer. You'd think the fact that Raj is apparently rich and has a freakin' PhD would make it easier for him to meet women (or men).

I liked how nonchalant Sheldon was about answering Penny. It didn't seem quite like the way we've seen him in the past, so it was a bit weird.

Kripke's speech impediment is like fingernails on a chalk board, but I liked him in this episode. But it would be nice if they backed off the annoying voice, just like they've done with Bernadette.

I felt the same. It's never felt like overkill before. It was almost like they doubled the amount of words he mispronounced compared to normal.

Funny Kripke side note: The only other thing I remember seeing that actor in is an episode of Whitney where he played a character who had an entirely different speech problem.

Yeah, Drgaon Tattoo -- I watch that shit too. Because I've got terrible taste in entertainment.

Well Jason, at least you're smart enough to know which threads to click on and which ones to avoid.

True. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go post in the Dallas thread and tell everyone there how stupid they are for watching an 80s retread soap opera.

No thread-crapping. If you don't watch the show, don't post in the thread.

But the way he pronounced "lingerie" was sublime.
