There may be hope yet for Amy Farrah Fowler.
The female version of Sheldon actually broke away from him in the feelings department. Seems AFF isn’t averse to a little lusting after a dude, and she did just that over one of Penny’s former flames.
Now I know people have some feelings as to how realistic it is that she has gone her whole life without ever feeling any excitement over a guy until she came upon this one. But honestly, do we think AFF even got out much prior to falling in with our “BBT” brood?
Whether you bought into it or not, it was all worth it for the version of “Who’s on first” that she and Sheldon engaged in as she tried to explain her physical reaction to Penny’s former date. It was yet another example of how “BBT” is able to spin a classic and infuse it with fresh hilarity.
I wasn’t loving the secondary story line with Raj and Wolowitz battling over who would be the super hero and who would be the sidekick – though I do get it. That's exactly what that pair would argue over.
I wouldn’t mind seeing more of Penny, AFF and Bernadette hanging out. Their chemistry (or in the case of AFF, the lack there of) makes for some pretty funny scenes. And as much as I love Sheldon, it’s nice to once in awhile have a show which doesn’t completely revolve around him and his dysfunction.
Calling all Bangers – what did you think of Thursday night's episode?
