Unknown, good for you for owning up. That can't be easy either and now you can teach your children to be empathic as well. I 100% agree with the reviewer. Yes, its supposed to be comedy but it doesn't making it any less depressing to watch. Maybe Leonard doesn't ever get Jimmy to actually change but the least they could do was call Sheldon out for his verbal abuse. You can see the characters are sick of it and now would have been a good opportunity to address it. I re-watched the first season and Sheldon wasn't a warm, fluffy bunny but he always had his friend's back at least. He was less vicious and more condescending, now he's just an asshole. I don't know why the guys put up with him other than they feel like they have no choice. Penny grated on my nerves this time around. Even her last minute attack of guilt didn't do anything for me. She basically spent the entire episode in self pity because she felt bad for hurting people. You can't apologize for making fun of someone's stutter in highschool only to hang up the phone and make a crack at it again. If she had actually done some soul searching in this ep, I might have feel differently. Instead she only came off as shallow. Bully is serious. I hate to burst everyone's comedy bubble but it's a real problem out there. And its not just the kids either but that's where it starts. I might be more inclined to be more understanding of BBT take on bully if kids weren't committing suicide over it.

Penny rarely leaves the her apartment these days, unless its accompanied by Amy or Bernadette. She could hardly be classified as a tramp. Maybe she was sexual when the show first started but she's really not now. My advice to people watching this show, it's very much about sex. If you're uncomfortable with that, don't watch a show created by Chuck Lorre. You know, the guy who also created Two and a Half Men? Seriously, the slut award goes to Charlie Harper. No one else comes close.

I agree that the change of scenery has been good for GG. Last season was oppressively dark, we all know they're going to be back in New York soon but before that, might as well have some fun. I loved the dynamic where Serena was promoting Nate as some kind of Hollywood-It-Boy, she would be the one to know all about marketing yourself. But not another cougar! The "Duchess" was bad enough. Chuck has been tied in his father's business too much lately, it's not really a relate able story to the viewers, unless Donald Trump is watching. On the other hand, I'm apprehensive, they have yet to do a successful Chuck-Bass-by-himself storyline. I'm hoping Dan took some time to make actual friends over the summer, not people who blackmail him or steal novels. Also, his dad doesn't count. He's pining after Blair but that makes little sense after his weird, semi-courtship of Charlie/Ivy. Blair, what a train wreck of a good character. She's 20. Why is she caught up in worries that a 30 year old would shudder at? This marriage thing is dumb. I hope the producers get that soon. Just because Kate and Will's wedding was popular doesn't mean it'll translate to GG. I am glad to see the focus brought back to its core characters. Blair, Serena, Chuck, Nate, and Dan. Those are the interesting ones.

Also, everyone hasn't slept with everyone... There was Penny/Leonard and now a one night stand with Raj... Otherwise the couples have all been the same...Bernadette with Howard...Raj with no one...Sheldon and his quasi gf Amy. That's really not everyone sleeping with everyone, considering that it's a tv show heavily involving sex...It's really not that poly amorous. The only other cross over was Leslie Winkler and her character was established as very sexual.

Raj and Penny wont be a couple. They were lonely. They were drunk. And they had the world's most awkward morning after. But I think it causes such a ripple in the group. Except for the Penny/Priya thing they we're all getting along way to perfectly. The lack of drama this season has made things seriously stale. I think this has trashed the Penny/Leonard relationship, finally. It needed to end. Exes shouldn't pretend to date for a camera, it comes off really weak. Can we have something happen in Penny's life that doesn't include an ex? Otherwise, I LOVED THIS EP. Best of the season. We actually got to see Bernadette and Howard as a couple, instead of just pieces every now and then. If I were Raj I would have punched Leonard in the face by now, what kind of friend has noisy/creepy Star Trek sex with his bro's sister...In his bed? Although now Raj has had sex with Penny in Leonard's bed...So wash on that one. I loved Leonard's convo with his Priya's parents, particularly the ending of it. I loved Penny and Raj getting caught on their walk of shame. Sheldon's confusion. The general chaos that was this finale. I know people are bitter that it wasn't like the previous seasons but you guys were complaining that it was "always just the guys, so boring". Now you're upset that they're including more characters and interactions? I personally love the addition of the girls...except Priya...She's such a weasel...Lying to people, sleeping with her brother's friend in his bed, getting very controlling over Leonard. I. Don't. Enjoy. Her presence. She needs to go. Which she will. Excellent. I can't wait for the next season. Also...Chuck Lorre has ALWAYS made poop jokes, jerking off jests, and really graphic sexual innuendos...Before BBT...Remember he created Two and Half Men...

I disagree, I think Alicia did try. And how many times did she give up what she wanted to make her family happy? If her husband and kids had it their way, she'd be the stay at home mom she was before. Peter thinks he owns her. He made that very clear during that final scene outside the elevator. Alicia's entire perspective changed when she learned the truth about her marriage. But she didn't want to hurt her kids. She was a loyal wife and helped him get elected. She was willing to forgive him because she thought she knew the entire truth. She though he'd stop lying to her. But she asked straight out if there had been something between him and Kalinda, they both lied to her face. Her trust for their marriage couldn't take anymore. Alicia has been humiliated, cheated on, lied to repeatedly, tricked, and bullied into supporting Peter. But she's the slut? She's the one that didn't try? Peter is not a changed man. Yes, sending that evidence worked out for her but it could has just as easily blown up in LG's faces! It also took Glen Childs down a notch further, which is good for his career. Speaking of which, Alicia would go against Peter in court. Which wouldn't work out well if Peter was aiming for Governor and needed his wife at his side. Whose career would have to be sacrificed? Probably Alicia's. I don't get how Alicia is the whore for finally having a night with a man she's loved for years and years, after she told her husband that their marriage was over? They're not even under the same roof anymore! Their children know that they're not together but Alicia doesn't want the press to stalk her family. Hence why she doesn't make it official. Alicia had the decency to tell Peter she didn't want to be with him anymore before moving on. Peter never showed her any kind of respect. But society blames the women when marriages fail and it's ridiculous. I also resent being told I don't have morals. Marriage is a beautiful between two people that love and respect either. You can't love someone but not respect them. Peter didn't respect Alicia and he didn't respect his marriage. He broke his vows and lied to her. Alicia is prisoner to his career and ambition. She has right break free. Yes, I know this only a t.v but it speaks about real life issues.

Nora's great, I like her but I still think it's going to be Barney and Robin. Robin and Barney are always sitting beside each other, in every flash back and every scene. It's just a lot of set up to lead to no where. They did mention that things weren't over with that shirt guy for Robin, so I'm wondering how this will play out.

I was hoping it would be Barney and Robin's wedding but now it looks like it will be :D It can't be Nora. First of all, Nora wasn't there during the Meatball scene, which took place years and years into the future. If there's one thing I've learned from watching this show is that they plan everything out before hand. They have to. Also, Barney said he had already met the "right" girl, he was talking about Robin. They wouldn't bother setting this up if Robin and Barney weren't going to get back together. I think they're showing that most of the time couples shouldn't get back together but sometimes they can. I loved the "psych" moment. But I still don't think that Ted's going to marry a blonde women, that scene with Stella as the mother had the kids blonde. That probably means he married a brunette. Why else would he assume that marrying a blonde woman equals blonde kids? I was NOT expecting Lily to be pregnant. I should have guessed but I didn't, I was waiting for Marshall to throw up in his suitcase. I'm so happy that they're going to be parents! Yay.

Glee Review: "Funeral"

@kreeto I disagree with you, respectfully. Finn has already come to terms with his dad's death when his mom started dating Burt Hummel. What he got out of the ceremony was that you have to live life and do what makes you happy. Besides, if you don't love someone you should let them go. Otherwise you're living a lie. Loyalty is important but when you tell someone you love them every night, it should be because you do, not because you have to say that. As for Terry and Will, Will was right to dump her. Terry lied to Will about being pregnant for months and months. She also used it to manipulating him into buying a house they couldn't afford. She made him work two jobs while she shopped their money away at Pottery Barn, constantly made him feel like crap for coaching the Glee Club when it made him happy, and she refused to support him when he tried singing in the Acafellas. Terry was going to have Will raise his students' baby, without him knowing about it. Think about how wrong that is for a moment. Emma encouraged Will to teach Glee Club because it made him happy. Money isn't everything. I would rather my parents to be happy in life on a moderate income then be rich and miserable. Will and Emma had feelings for each but they never acted on it until Will was divorced. Emma should never have been with Ken, that was wrong of her but she thought was she was going to end up alone. Now Terry's basically stalking Will. She made things right last episode but it doesn't mean that Will should go back to her. Especially since she was just fixing what she did in the first place.

Glee Review: "Funeral"

Some of what Jesse said was right. I think that the New Directions have been getting a bit full of themselves lately. Satanna doesn't have the best voice although Naya Rivera has been working hard to change that and I really respect her hard work. Mercedes (not Amber, she must work hard too to be on this show and she's amazing) has her voice come naturally and is lazy about it. Meanwhile Rachel works harder then everyone else, although she didn't have any choreography she was clearly the best performance and that's due to Lea Michele's amazing ability to sing with her emotions. Jesse's right that everyone should adopt a better work ethic to beat Vocal Adrenaline. He's a pain in the ass but New Directions really hasn't done much to prepare except whine about themselves. I too want to see them do more with their performances...I loved the their Regional preformance and want to see them kick it into high gear for New York. But as for Jesse and Rachel. I vote no on that. Rachel doesn't need Jesse to make her a star, she can do that on her own. And I still remember that creepy kiss he gave her last season while his coach/Rachel's bio mom was watching. Good for Finn for FINALLY breaking up with Quinn. He owed her that much. He doesn't love her. Clearly he cares about her but he shouldn't be with her when his feelings lie elsewhere. Besides Quinn is sooooo obsessed with being the perfect Prom King and Queen that it's almost Fetal Attraction scary. I mean her last line about "ruining her plans" was frightening. I've said it before and Ill say it again, Quinn needs to either redeem herself or be mean all the time. She's acting crazy! It's like she's bi polar. Actually that would explain a lot. You can't blame her mood swings on pregnancy this season. (Btw this was not an insult to people suffering from Bi Polar, properly treated it is a very manageable condition.) As for Sue. I loved her this episodes. At first I thought she was a bit flat but then we saw how angry she was and it made sense. When she finally broke down at the funeral, it was heart wrenching. I think Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison make a great team. Some people think Will was cruel for turning Becky down but I dont blame him. I understand that its tough to live with Down syndrome in high school but she can't just walk into the Glee Club so close to the end of the year. What should of happened was Becky's parents should have gone to Figgins about kicking Becky off so cruelly.But luckily Sue re considered and made Becky captain. Becky works hard on the Cheerios and deserves it...Although Quinn isn't going to be happy about that...Oh well. Being pretty doesn't mean you should automatically get what you want. I liked this episode, the performances were fantastic. The writing was actually well done. I loved the emotional scenes and the Quinn/Finn break up was amazing. Cory Monteith and Dianna Argon did a great job.
