Did they change writers? I agree that the acting seems off, and the dialogue doesn't sparkle with wit like it usually has----they need to go back to the characterizations and cleverness that made it an awesome, smart show.

Great episode. Best one since Penny gave Sheldon the napkin used by Leonard Nemoy.
Meh United States, 00:17 Oct 26 2012.
First episode in a while where it was actually funny and Penny wasn't portrayed as a dumb blonde/slut. Still nowhere near as funny as Modern Family.

This episode is an insult to the viewers' intelligence. It is ridiculous that a microbiologist, who is always concerned about germs (Bernadette)insists that Howard have sex with her when she has a severe cold. It is also surprising that his close friends don't go to the airport to receive Howard.

Right before the blue berry shot, penny looked towards the camera. why wasnt it edited out ?? My fav show going slacky on editing.....arghh doesnt go with it isnt it

Funniest show this season...so far. Question: did anyone notice that the dentist climbing out of Ma's window had a wedding ring on? Mistake? Twist? Obsessed observation from single lady?

The most excited moment for me is that Penny kissed Sheldon during the game, though it's on the face.

Please bring Sheldon's twin sister back. That episode is a favorite.
