The Big Bang Theory Review: "The Agreement Dissection"

by at . Comments

In "The Agreement Dissection", we finally find out why Priya was brought into Leonard's life beyond just keeping him away from Penny ... to nullify the roommate agreement.

Unfortunately for Leonard, but fortunately for the viewers, the roommate agreement-free zone didn't last long, but it provided the backbone for one of the funniest episodes of The Big Bang Theory this season.

Sheldon Busts a Move

For the first time, I wasn't annoyed with any of the characters, not even Priya or Amy. They both were well-utilized in the story and weren't annoying human beings.

Perhaps, Sheldon did Leonard a favor by blackmailing him and Priya, because now he has a reason to break up with her. As we all know, Leonard still belongs with Penny.

Amy in large doses usually grates at me, but drunk Amy is hilarious.

I hope her relationships with Penny and Bernadette will help bring out that side of her even when she is sober. We really don't need two characters who can only function as full human beings when they are drinking. Though, it would be intriguing to see what would happen if drunk Amy and Raj were to hook up.

Jim Parsons, as usual, had the funniest moments. I'm not sure anyone else could have eaten - or not eaten - greek food in such a comical manner. He is able to use his facial expressions to perfectly reflect Sheldon's circumstances.

The only part that I didn't really find funny was the smoking monkey.

It was a distraction to the Sheldon and Amy moment. It isn't often that the two of them are alone together and I would have enjoyed it better without the monkey. Though, it was good to find out from the vanity card at the end, that the monkey wasn't actually smoking.

Over the last few episodes, The Big Bang Theory has effectively turned into an ensemble show including not only the boys, but the girls as well. If Priya would disappear, the universe would be perfect on my favorite nerd show.

I used to love this show but the episode with the smoking monkey was not only horrific but inhumane. How many of you would laugh to see a baby smoking in the show? Animal cruelty is not funny and the directors of this show should be ashamed of themselves.

I love Amy and I really enjoy Amy and Sheldon's relationship, however quirky it might be. It was good to see the ladies let loose and Birnadette is absolutely adorable! The monkey, while hilarious, was a distraction from the Sheldon/Amy interaction. Priya, I'm glad the series has foreshadowed your demise; sorry babe, just don't click right, nothing personal!

Good point about drunk Amy, she was hilarious! So is Raj, but Sheldon is the right guy for her. Remember? They were matched up on that computer dating website! I do hope that they have more episodes of the girls and Sheldon at a bar (maybe karaoke?)

Monkey was hilarious. Loved this episode. Awesome periodic table shower curtain. Don't love Priya but at least she had a purpose last night.

Priya must go. She is like nails on the chalk board. I do love the 3 girls hanging out together. I like zack, he adds a different comedy to the show. Do you think the monkey was Charlie Sheen? The monkey was needed to not have the scene get too deep and force something to happen with Leonard and Amy.

Priya from the first moment is dispensable in this show, for me it simply does not fit.
Bernadette increasingly proving to be better, I love her drunk.
