I smell another restraining order for Sheldon!

It seemed more like the other way around at the end.
JEJ was hilarious!
And poor Sheldon, being a fan can be hard.

If the B and C stories hadn't been so bland and boring this could have been one of the best episodes of the whole show.

Anyone go dub Star Wars with lines from this episode ASAP!

I can't believe Sheldon. How can Martin Freeman be on his board but Benedict Cumberbatch isn't??!!

Sheldon hates nuTrek and Sherlock Holmes is so far below Sheldon's intellect.

Hey, was the train set from 2/6 the same as the Enterprise's Holodeck train when the computer became sentient?

Re: The Big Bang Theory

Nobody commenting on the monumental shift in this episode?

Kudos to the writers for advancing the characters, especially Sheldon. Never in a million years would i have expected this kiss and especially the surprise and apparent joy/desire he experienced when he kissed Amy as a man would kiss his girlfriend.

Him getting a girlfriend was a big step but this is an even bigger one and i'm curious to see if they will pick it up in a timely manner and not wait another season for the follow up.

Raj getting a number from hot vet was also very cute and overdue. Well, he's not the manliest of men but he's still a very good guy who got into his own way more times than needed so it was nice for him to get lucky without even trying (which is often why he fails with the ladies). I also hope this gets explored as it's time to let this "I'm unlovable and no woman wants me" shtick they have going for him as it starts to get old (if creep Howard managed to get a hot wife so can Raj).
Luckily they got rid of his speech problem in last seasons finale as that was also a very long running joke that wasn't as funny anymore.

Overall big movement on the remaining romantically challenged characters which was due. Let's hope they continue with it.

I find that kind of amusing since, when he was first introduced, Stuart came across as pretty confident and emotionally well-adjusted. It wasn't until later on that he became the sad and depressing caricature he is now.

Yeah, in one of the earlier episodes he's pretty smooth when he hit on Penny by way of drawing her and getting her interest. He's still a nerd but he didn't freeze up automatically when meeting a pretty girl and had some witty lines.. kind of some of the nerds i know when they're on a good day.

Unfortunately he's now the show's sadsack used for cheap laughs and the very worst clichee of nerds (never mind that he's got his own business doing something he loves). He's become the punching bag of the show and BBT should be better than that. I seem to recall he should've been promoted to series regular during the Wollowitz in Space storyline but i guess they decided against it, maybe they thought the cast is big enough as it is.

Re: The Big Bang Theory

I don't think so.

People do go through changes and some of them have changed quite a bit.

Amy came in as a female Sheldon but her character expanded (thankfully) and they rewrote her. Maybe they realized that having the same character just with different genders wouldn't work.

If you remember Sheldon was also a littbe bit different in the pilot episode.. he even tried to hit on Penny but they changed his character too a little bit.

Howard evolved from creepy nerd to married and less creepy, just nerdy.

Raj got over his speech problem when in the vicinity of women (finally) and is now trying to find a partner.

Leonard has become a little bit more sure of himself especially when it comes to Penny but basically he's still the most down to earth guy that he ever was in that group (though still a full on nerd).

Sheldon has also developed over time (though at a glacial pace), accepting Amy into his life and starting to call her his girlfriend and most recently initiating the first kiss (which he apparently liked very much).

So most of them have progressed and changed with life and circumstances while still retaining most of their basic character traits. Sometimes they surprise us (such as Bernadette having this horrible competitive streak) but often enough they stay to their roots.

I started off not liking Bernadette, I thought that storyline and marriage came way too quick. I loved how Amy was a female Sheldon.

Now I feel Amy being a horny woman is lame and completely out of character, it's not growth, it's just weird. And Bernadette is fun, but not what she was like when we met her, but in this case it's good.
