The red shift is becoming a more serious issue now. It needs a Kernel Klink vs Intelligence variation. Like the Rube Goldberg variations, only in reverse.

This episode was ok but not up to the standards of the first few episodes of this season. Leonard needs to cut his hair! Looks so much better short. Hoping tonight's episode will be much better than last week's. Love Penny's commercial with William Shatner. Well done!

Since Kaley Cuoco was just in a commercial with Bill Shatner, you ought to do an episode where it is Penny that gets the spot and the guys go nuts due to Cpt. Kirk in the same spot. Should be able to really make funny.

I didn't really like this episode, the two subplots: Sheldon/Kripkey and the action figures, were both just meh, nothing really happened. Also I find the married Howard much less funny than the desperate hump-anything-that-moves Howard. well, hoping for some good upcoming episodes! cheers.

Loved this episode, haven't laughed this hard at BBT in a while. Penny's reaction when they finished discussing Sheldon's love life was priceless
