Review: The Big Bang Theory - The Vengence Formulation

(S03E09)
As soon as I read the episode info and saw that Kripke was going to be making an appearance, I lost all hope of this episode coming anywhere close to matching the brilliance of last week's. I was not wrong. I don't like Kripke. I don't find a speech impediment to be funny, and with him, it's completely extraneous. Sheldon could just have an enemy (I don't doubt he had many, in fact). You don't need to give the character this extra identifying mark.

So not only was I dismayed by Kripke's appearance, his practical joke was just mean-spirited and again, not something that I found funny. I don't like watching people getting humiliated. Sheldon dressed up for a radio interview. That's adorable, and then to not only be embarrassed for absolutely no reason in front of a national audience, but to have his friends laughing at him as well, just made me sad. Luckily, Wolowitz's uh, love triangle with Bernadette and Katee Sackhoff saved the episode for me.

The Big Bang Theory: The Killer Robot Instability

big bang theory(S02E12) You guys, this episode made me really uncomfortable. I was still riding high on the glow of the last episode, which was probably the best episode of the BBT ever, so I expected this one to be great. It... wasn't.

It started out promising enough, what with the killer robot and all. I mean, who wouldn't love a killer robot? The whole gang was hanging out in the apartment, doing what they do best: engaging in complicated geek pastimes. They killed a toaster oven with a robot! That's some good stuff right there.

Unfortunately, as soon as we're done with the opening credits, the episode really starts to go downhill for me. Penny starts out by being really mean to Wolowitz, and while she does have a point, it was really uncomfortable to watch. Yes, Wolowitz is creepy, but all of the guys are socially awkward. She wouldn't yell at Raj for not being able to talk to her, why yell at Wolowitz for talking to her the only way he knows how?
