    It is just something that came to me whilst I was watching the episode (watching at UK pace)

    And since he was refering to the plane in the movie, not a boat, the correct term (airplane nerd here) is actually "floatplane."

    I didn't have such a problem with Wheaton during his TNG days.. he was just the standard kid actor (:eek::eek: calm down.. it's not like i claimed Nemesis was the best ST movie!) but seeing him here i realize that.. well.. he sucks as an actor. He has not improved in quality over time as most adults do and it's ok that he's not an actor anymore as his main profession apparently.

    As to Penny disappearing for a few episodes.. she was injured and as i take they film an episode each week and she needed to recuperate she just wasn't available for that time. Even more hilarious was the text at the end of an episode last week or the week before that where the producer makes fun of the accident and sets some ground rules for his actors and doing dangerous stuff on their free time (in a humorous tone).

    This episode you could clearly see the cast poking through her trouser leg when they were watching Indiana Jones.. they tried to hide it with wide legs but it was still noticeable. Glad it was just a broken foot and will heal.

    Final thought.. yay for the admittance that her leaving Leonard was more of a panic reaction than the realization of not having feelings anymore. I'm a huge shipper and that was big for me as i think they make a very cute couple. Just recently i also learned that the two dated in real life for about the time they were a pair onscreen which was also nice to hear and it would be also a question to the guys i'd pose if i ever got to talk to them personally.. i just can't believe you can work with such an attractive woman and not have some "thoughts" :devil:

    Edit: Oops.. important typo fixed :shifty:

    Fixed. It was Leonard( johnny galecki )

    Kaley was quoted as saying she'll never date actors again :)

    She's dating a musician now :lol:

    Me, I hated the Penny/Leonard relationship because of how it made Leonard unlikeable. I like him better this season than I did the entire third season. Maybe it was because they were dating irl, but they had 0 chemistry on the show.

    I don't know if I agree, BUT, I'm glad they did the relationship because it got them past the whole Will They/Won't They thing.

    Now, it's they DID, and we're moving on.

    Am I the only one who thought Amy was very out of character this episode? There were numerous instances, but the biggest was the lesbian scene at the end...

    I don't know.. she's the female Sheldon and like him she's socially totally inept or rather very factual and scientific.

    She's reads about how a slumber party is supposed to work and fails to realize that the last part with the lesbianism is more of a male teenager fantasy (it said so on the "manual"! :lol:) so she went through with it.

    So she was quite in character.. asked about her sexual preferences she'd supposedly cite some neurochemical facts about sexuality and that to a brain it's all the same no matter where the stimulus is coming from... it made for a hilarious Penny reaction though.. too bad it was behind closed doors.

    And isn't Bernadette the cutest woman ever.. i find her more attractive than Penny!

    Penny is very attractive (though I prefer her in season 1 to now) but I love cute so Bernadette makes me :drool: everytime.

    I got into The Big Bang Theory after watching the season 2 episode 'The Griffin Equivalency' on a repeat late at night, after the end of the season I watched all of season 1 and 2 and couldn't wait for more. One of my favourite shows and Sheldon is one of the best characters ever, he reminds me of me in the way I'm not afraid to truly say what I think, even if it will upset someone, Bazinga!

    Christopher Judge was wearing a Bazinga shirt on Hollywood Treasure. It was awesome.

    I don't know about that, I find it hard to believe they won't go back there, especially considering the reason Penny went into her room after the truth or dare scene. She clearly still has some romantic feelings towards him, and I find it hard to believe he'd turn her down if she showed interest again.

    And yeah, Melissa Rauch (Bernadette) is quite fetching. She's cute as a button and her assets are quite impressive. I like her on True Blood too, though her character on that show is annoying as hell.

    I don't buy it one bit. The first time she appeared, she declared that under no circumstances would Sheldon even be allowed to touch her. She's a character who's averse to any form of overt sexuality.

    Perhaps it's more likely

    I mean, the time Penny complimented her, she did say she would be more flattered if Penny were a lesbian.

    She's also a scientist who's socially inactive for the most part.. her wedging herself into Penny's girl's night was out of character to begin with (that was not very believable or in character for her and it put me off a bit) but the storyline wouldn't have worked without her attending this social event. What came afterwards was pure Amy though and i loved it :techman:

    It did seem out of character to me at first, but then it began to appear that Amy was kind of desperate for that female friendship that she never got in school. I would say it was more a development of her character that they were going for.

    Exactly. She went from being asexual to all of the sudden being willing to engage in lesbian activities.
