    oh, and it just killed me when Leonard made a wise comment to Sheldon and Sheldon said, "That's pretty sassy for someone who has a roommate review coming up." :lmao:

    I'd prefer if they cut way back on the sex aspect of the show. I like the nerds dealing with life. Did not like last night's because it was almost all about sex.

    I, too, am completely over the will they/won't they stay together storyline. If they don't make it and break up again, please just write Penny off the show. I can't handle another season of them not together and her regretting it, but still not getting back together with him and just short of hanging out in limbo.

    ::yes::I agree.

    exactly! for the past 2-3 seasons she's gone on and on about what a great guy leonard is, even telling raj (just before they "slept" together) that she never should've broken up with leonard.
    i've watched EVERY episode of this show, but i've had it with her indecisiveness.

    Yes, is was better but only marginally. This season is just not entertaining at all.

    I laughed a lot last night, but I was the only one in the house that did. Hmm.

    How was it mostly about sex? They had sex at the end..the rest was about relationships, yes, but not sex specifically.

    Does anyone else think it might be time for Leonard to meet someone new?

    I think it was not as funny because I felt so sorry for both Leonard and for Howard. The best part of the show (imho) is that the guys have overcome how people treated them in their youth and found their group that understand them. Now it is like they are back to being the ones that don't fit with Penny being unsure and Howard being bullied.

    I just think the NASA bullying is probably really unrealistic. Those teams have to be so tight, and psychologically healthy- their lives might depend on it. Of course it's probably unrealistic that Walowitz would pass the psych screening, so....

    Part of me started wondering last night if there's not some plot to kill off Howard. Have an accident during landing, etc. and replace him with Stuart. It just seemed to me that now that he's married and gone to space, his story doesn't have anywhere else to go.

    I hope not. Stewart doesn't in my eyes fit in with the others. I think there still storylines for Howard

    I too am confused about it being about sex. No one was SHOWN in bed together. It was only mentioned that they slept together.

    I think what people are referring to when talking about sex is more of the innuendo. there are a lot of sexual references and the one episode that comes to mind is the one where Howard was using the machine he built for nasa for "another purpose" and it got stuck on him.

    One of our favorite quotes is, "Well, that's not fancy at all." From when Sheldon had all the cats and dumped some Fancy Feast on a plate for them.

    I love Sheldon. I am in the minority but I find something so cute about him. I love him with Amy. Also, really enjoy the relationship he has with Penny. She is so patient with him. My favorite episode is the Adhesive Duck Deficiency..."the hero always peeks."

    Maybe they are intentionally making it seem like Sheldon and Penny have less chemistry in order to fuel the storyline about Penny not being sure again. Maybe they will have her grow and realize the difference between real/lasting love vs. a lust/sex based "exciting" relationship.

    I do like Howard's beard a lot. It really suits him. Howard being picked on by the other astronauts made me sad though...didn't find it funny.

    Happy to have some new episodes!

    Maybe it was the fact I was drinking chardonnay, but I was about on the floor last night laughing at last night's episode. Seemed a lot better than the season opener.

    yes, and not to make penny jealous, as in the past (Priya, anyone?), but to actually let leonard have a real relationship with someone who appreciates him. i feel sorry for leonard, because he REALLY loves penny, and she can't even bring herself to tell him she loves him. i'm sick of watching her string him along.

    I agree. I normally love watching the guys and Penny but so far this season not so much. When Sheldon told Penny "please don't hurt my friend" I wanted to cry. Hopefully they do not drag this on all season. Just break them up already and introduce a new girl for Raj and Leonard.

    Then I keep thinking that Raj and Stewart could be gay, as another poster mentioned. Last night Raj told the guys him and Stewart were going out to pick up girls then he said in kind of a weird voice, "Cause that's what we dooooooo......" As if he was trying to convince everyone. Don't know if they were just referring to the fact that he is shy and geeky and they really don't go after girls for that reason, or if they were referring to sexual preference.
