The Big Bang Theory > The Big Bang Theory Review: A Chicken Pecking for Corn > Comments Page 2
Ok cue embarrassment! I ducked to the little girls room for 30 seconds and missed the Douglas Adams reference. I only caught it just now when I rewatched this ep. I must say though that, whilst I enjoyed this ep, the funny was slightly lacking so I hope they lift the laughs soon!
I need to ask a question: What's wrong with Big Bang this year??? It seems lost...a major change since last year! Has something changed with cast or crew or writers or what???
Anyone have a clue???
I am in the minority for I thought Sheldon's story line was the weaker of the two. It was out of character; he acknowledged one of his "limitations" in a much different way than usual. It appears that he has been changing over the past few weeks. The writers are taking us someplace new or have lost a little. As for Leonard and Penny - excellent. Penny and Leonard are a much better couple than the assistant would be. The oil and vinegar that is L & P is great.No Amy? She was an excellent foil at the outset but is getting on my nerves.
It's not the alien eating his face, Sheldon just thinks he's a chicken pecking for corn. Ha!!
Also, how come Sheldon didn't know what a hicky was a couple of episodes ago, but all of a sudden he knows about 'a chicken pecking for corn'? Someone has been reading up when he wasn't doing the HackeySack.
Of course Sheldon's assistant is a better match for Leonard --logically-- but I've yet to see one guy go for the smart, logical choice when there is a 'Penny' around. I'd like to see Sheldon's assistant take up with the comic store owner.
Well said, Ann. I found that scene to be a great insight into who Sheldon is. It was touching without being heavy-handed. Thanks for pointing it out.
The worm hole fake-out was pretty darn funny. My problem now is, after waiting all this time for Penny to drop the L word, I'm starting to thinkSsheldon's assistant is a better match for Leonard. Why are life and sitcoms always so complicated?
What I liked is that Loenard was jealous because he tought Penny was getting hit on, and yet he was completely unaware he was being hit on himself. makes you think he was proabbly right, and Penny is as clueless as he is.
@Alihan Raj and Howard did throw the Douglas Adams theory out there when brainstorming.
Thats funny... it was one of my favorite episodes EVER- awesome!
What seemed significant about this episode was Sheldon explaining to Raj and Howard how difficult the social interactions of everyday life can be for him, and how tiring it is for him to not get sarcasm and to not talk about his interests as much as he would like to, and how he is really trying to change his behavior to fit in this social world that confuses him. It seemed almost touching, the way he explained it to them...and that he needed some time alone each day to do whatever to recharge for the constant onslaught of the social cues that slip by him.
I was so happy about Leonard and Penny when she said the L word and then he said "she loves me" when he was alone ...that moment I was about to cry until he read the text message and a facepalm came to me xD
I't wasn't the best episode but has great moments and the chiken thing hahahahahaahahahahahaha priceless :D
Like a chicken pecking for corn was one of the funniest lines this show has ever had. I couldnt stop laughing. Overall i like this episode it had some great comedy in it as well as progressing the relationship of Penny and Leonard.
I think its great that Leonard has someone with a crush on him for a change instead of Penny, who general hooks up with lots of randoms.
This was hilarious! I was dying along with Raj & Howard to find out what Sheldon was up to. Never would have guessed hackey sack! Somehow I had it in my head that it had something to do with Amy.
I almost cried along with Penny & Leonard after her I love you - especially when he got back inside his apartment & said "She loves me" in that awe-struck, yet so happy voice. :')
@Derek1314, I did notice Ryan Cartwright! I love him in Alphas. I knew he was British because of his briliant role as Vincent Nigel-Murray on Bones.
the funny part was all about sheldon and the number 43
the not-funny and unlike part was leonard, although i agree with him, with his current situation no wonder he acts like that
Now that's the show that i love, no Amy, no “Shamy” just classic TBBT with just Penny and the guys. This show is just so much more enjoyable without creepy Amy ruining the dynamic (i have nothing against Mayim, i loved her as Blossom, but Amy just screws up the show, please do more episodes without her or here is a thought… GET RID OF HER LIKE, NOW!). This was by far the best episode of season 6 so far and i just adored the “I love you” from Penny to Leonard, what a shame that TPTB are going to break them up yet again. Oh well they will end up together by the end of the show, so it's all good i guess.
Just curious, no one here a fan of Douglas Adams? 42 is the answer after all. Maybe Sheldon came up with 43 lol. Funny that the writers picked this number, I think it was on purpose for the sci-fi fans... Any thoughts?
One of the best. No Amy or Bernadette, thank god!
it was a worm hole not a black hole, how the heck you can get those two confused i have no idea as they are mentioned in about every tv show or movie that has anything even romotly to do with science. also did anyone else realise the english guy was Ryan Cartwright who plays Gary on Alphas, i didnt even realise he was english till i looked him up just now to check if it was him.
Not Sheldon -- oops, Leonard!
I gave this ep 5 stars. Maybe I would have given it 4, except the episode where Penny tells Sheldon she loves him? Gotta be 5 stars!
I really enjoyed this ep. The whole wormhole thing was awesome, the faces and screaming of Raj and Howard were really funny.
