The Big Bang Theory Review: Howard, Raj and Sailor Moon

at .

Howard and Bernadette's wedding day is approaching and that means ... bachelor party time! And that we got in "The Stag Convergence."

Were you expecting a wild and crazy party? Strippers, booze, and ... the morning after? I'm not sure what I expected, but it definitely wasn't a boring dinner party! Even Awesome threw a better bachelor party for Chuck, even though it was in Las Vecas.

Even worse than Howard's party? Bernadette's. I wouldn't call sitting around making welcome bags for guests a party at all. But, despite the less than rockin' shindigs for the guests, they provided laughs for us viewers.

Sheldon needs to drink more often. He was mean to Howard during his speech, but as we know Sheldon never says anything nice to Howard. At least, we got a bunch of Bazingas and Jeepers!

For all the drinks Sheldon should have, Raj needs to stay away from the grasshoppers. Oh wow! Could you remain friends with someone who outed your most private secrets in front of all your friends? And in front of Wil Wheaton (remember, he used to be Evil!)? Raj went crazy!

Raj: Oh, oh, what about the tubby girl in the Sailor Moon costume at Comic-Con?
Howard: Don't remember. Please sit down.
Raj: The only threesome I've ever had in my whole life and I'm proud to say it was with this man right here.
[All laughing]
Raj: Oh, oh, don't get me wrong, nothing happened with me and Howard. There was about 200 lbs of Sailor Moon between us.
Wil [recording on his phone]: Oh, Internet, this is so going all over you.
Sheldon: Jeepers, I'm drunk. | permalink

Since Howard started dating Bernadette, he has changed, but I never really realized how much. Often, it was hard to understand why Bernadette would stay with him. But he has changed. He no longer makes rude and widely inappropriate advances on other women. Remember that?

Everyone has a past, and Howard's is just hilarious. His cousin? A prostitute? A three-some with Sailor Moon and Raj? Good for some laughs, but in his past. That scene was funny and painful to watch at the same time. However, Howard's apology to Bernadette through Penny was priceless.

Yes, this is a comedy, but in the moment Howard proved that he has grown up and is an adult. Heartfelt and honest. And, in The Big Bang Theory style, provided a nice chuckle with Penny's response.

Howard: Tell her I'm really sorry. And if she doesn't want to marry me, I get it. But what I really want her to know is the guy that she is really disgusted by is the guy that I'm disgusted by, too. But, that guy doesn't exist anymore; he's gone. And the reason is because of her. So, if this relationship is over, let her know that she made me a better man, and tell her thank you.
Penny: Oh my god, Howard! That's the most beautiful thing I've ever heard. And it came out of you. | permalink

There are only two episodes left and the wedding is in two weeks. Will we get a Howard and Bernadette wedding this season? And, what about Howard's trip to space? Will that be the over-the-hiatus trip this year?

Are Howard and Bernadette right for each other? Should they get married?

The Big Bang Theory Season 5 Episode 22 Quotes

Bernadette: I've actually been thinking I'm going to hyphenate: Bernadette Maryann Rostenkowski-Wolowitz.
Penny: Nice. You know, you should totally get Bernadette Maryann before someone snaps it up.
Bernadette: Howard already took are of it. Plus he set up our beautiful wedding website with cute little facts about our family histories. Do you know for a while, in Poland, my family and his family were neighbors.
Penny: Aww, that's cool.
Amy: No, it's not. I'll explain it to you later.

Penny: Why should I worry?
Leonard: Well, I don't know. It's a bachelor party, there could be strippers. Wouldn't that make you a little jealous?
Penny: Come on, Leonard, it's you. What's gonna happen? I mean, even if there was a stripper, all you'd do is avoid eye- contact and offer to help her kid with his homework.
