The Big Bang Theory offered another twist on the Sheldon character on Monday night: he actually taught Leonard about the game of football.
I am absolutely stunned. Monday's episode of The Big Bang Theory, in my opinion, was absolutely, bar-none, the best episode of the series ever aired to this point.
It was as if my plea were answered. The Big Bang Theory had an episode that once again expertly integrated all of the characters in a manner which was fluid and compatible. The Wolowitz and Koonthrappali portion of the plot was typical yet engaging in its pertaining to the two undersexed physicists' quest to conquer the realm of sexuality using any means necessary.
It seems that lately we've been seeing a more emotional, vulnerable side of Sheldon. To be honest, I like it. Last night's Big Bang Theory saw Sheldon actually lose a scientific bet and have to swallow his pride. His continued grappling with emotion contrasted against his hilariously mindboggling inability to yet feel empathy for others in the same circumstances is oddly endearing.
BIg Bang came back with a bang! Any concerns as to a lengthy period of "will they, won't they" uncertainty between Leonard and Penny came to a speedy end, as within the first two minutes of the program, Leonard returned from his Polar Expedition and was greeted with a resounding kiss. Just like that, it appears that Penny and Leonard have entered a full-fledged relationship.
