Love the show will go down in history as comical genius. Accolades to all involved in production of The Big Bang Theory

This episodes running time is only 18 minutes & 43 seconds. The network or someone keeps cutting the show's running time down, I suppose in order to sell more commercials. In my opinion, that's not enough time to have a plot or story line. It's just all one liners spoken back and forth. This isn't going to work, especially when the writing seems a lot of time to be phoned in. There's obvious continuity issues. Look at old sitcoms from the '70s. Sanford and Son for instance, had a running time of 25 minutes.

Felt this was a good episode but they could have explored more deeply what is troubling Penny. Unless future episode may determine this. But I was glad to see they reconciled in the end as the arguments are getting tiresome and overdone. Newlyweds have ups and downs as they navigaye marriage but Penny and Leonard need more up times than what has been shown

Quality is a term i would, in this case, reserve forthe first six seasons. Seven onwards feels like tim cooks attempt at selling an iphone 7 to a seventy year old who thinks technology is resereved for devils and children. A higher paid actor doesnt always remain exceptional in their ability to peform. Stop wrighting episodes based on dead end arcs and have something meaningful happen before the award the series won becomes a faint memory.

This show has becoming boring from last 4 seasons.
