The Big Bang Theory 5.03 - The Pulled Groin Extrapalation



The Big Bang Theory 5.03 - The Pulled Groin Extrapalation


Brief Summary

Amy invites Leonard to come with her to a wedding, since Sheldon isn't a very good wedding date, and would rather be playing with toy trains. Howard and Bernadette argue about whether or not they should move in with Howard's mother when they get married, and Howard suggests a trial run with Bernadette staying at their house for the weekend.

What I Liked

Amy is hilarious, as always, and her interactions with Leonard were actually a lot of fun. Leonard is so awkward around her, since she herself is pretty bizarre. Her attempts to get him to lighten up at the wedding were great. "My sort-of-boyfriend is at home playing with a train set, you don't see me bitching about it!"

What I Didn't Like

The Howard and Bernadette story was essentially a rehash of an episode from last season, where Howard tried moving in with Bernadette. It's an issue that's ridiculous, and not very funny. It makes Howard look like an idiot, and I have no idea why Bernadette would stand for that. I'd dump him in a second.

Twists and Turns

Bernadette yells very similarly to Howard's mom.

Sheldon is actually jealous at the end when Leonard is talking about his date with Amy, and sternly scolds Leonard by hitting him on the shoulder. "No! She is not for you."

Observations

I love Bernadette, but Howard is ridiculous. How could she stay with him? He's almost more of a child than Sheldon. At least Sheldon has his own place.

Overall

Loved the Amy/Leonard story, hated the Bernadette/Howard story. Sheldon and the trains wasn't really that funny either.
