I didn't like the episode at all. Everyone was mean and stupid. I think the writers have made such a mess with the characters, that I don't even know who they are anymore. Maybe it's best to end the show, before it becomes a complete caricature.

didn't like how Leonerd used Penny's sex appeal for his favor. real men don't do that. Leonerd is a good guy. This is below par!!

I didn't start watching the show until last summer & I've recorded all the episodes on my DVR. I HATE waiting for a new episode but it keeps my Thursday's entertained. I really can't pick a favorite cast member cause they all have their best qualities. I love the puns, the jokes & how they pick on each other. Big thumbs up!

Sheldon would not be that racist. It's funny when he does socially unacceptable things because he's clueless or focused on other priorities. But he's also a fan of pop culture, especially Star Trek. It was disparaging to the Sheldon character to have him be that dumb and insensitive. Hence, this was my least favorite episode of BBT. Before now, it was my favorite season of my favorite show.
