I owe the Producers of the Big Bang Theory an apology. Adam West did appear as a guest star in the 200th Episode 'The Celebration Expiramentation'. Thank you Producers, well done.

Thanks Vic for your comment. I will try to keep up the eloquence. BTW have you or anyone else heard that the producers/writers are thinking about resurrecting Penny's acting career and also might reveal her long hidden maiden name this year. I read this from an online article

Voted Good; Because this episode didn't have any Laugh Out Loud moments for me. Despite that, I feel that it was an intelligent episode. The chemistry among the cast is really holding the show together. I've noticed that I generally agree with Mario D., thankfully he is much more eloquent that I.

I would like to see an episode based on what Amy would do if Sheldon was seduced by a female scientist. She always tells Penny what she would do to women threatening her relationship with Leonard.

Felt this episode was very good as it combined the character development and the running comic situation of Comic-Con. It showed Raj's growth as an adult and the couples growth in their relationships. In the end they all fessed up, except Sheldon, to make their partners happy. I still have a hard time on why the writers insist on making Penny and Leonard have all their disagreements instead of just have them communicate better with each other. So many fans of Penny and Leonard are very tired of these storylines with them. Hopefully, the remaining episodes will show them in a better place especially now that TBBT has been renewed for two more years.
