Sheldon vs. the bird on 'The Big Bang Theory'

As if Sheldon didn't have enough to contend with, he had to deal with a bird outside of his window on Thursday's "Big Bang Theory."

His ornithophobia got the best of him, even causing him to use a device that cracked his windows, instead of getting rid of the creature.

Thankfully, Amy and Bernadette came to the rescue, explaining that he had to get to know the bird to get over his fear, "just like with the mailman."

The moment he decided he liked birds, it flew away... but this being Sheldon, he already had an egg waiting to be hatched by the end of the episode.

As funny as all of this was, there wasn't much to the story, unlike the other plotline involving the fact that Leonard and Penny are basically incapable of hanging out together alone. (Leonard even tried this instead of watching "Star Wars" on Blu-ray, to which Howard reminded us, "If we don't start [watching] soon, George Lucas is going to change it again!")

The big question is, will these two get back together again? There isn't exactly anything stopping them at this point. More importantly, should they get back together again?

I'll let you weigh in on that, and all things "BBT" on iReport and in the comments below.

    Penny and Leonard do need to get back together. The simple fact is that the relationship tension between them was great but, 5 years later on not so much. their characters can continue to grow so much more as opposed to remaining the same. what makes a show stale is when it refuses to change. bringing in amy and bernadette brought so much more to the show by allowing the guys to show a social side to their characters that is not sad and lonely. And while Sheldon is funny it is only because of the ability to play off the people around him.

    What happened to the nerdy physics guys that can't get girls? The experimentalist is trying to hook back up with the supermodel, the fugly engineer is marrying a girl ten light years hotter than he would ever really get, and the theorist suffering from a schizoid or schizotypal personality disorder is snuggling with a girl, even tho human relationships continue to "baffle and repulse" him. Chuck and the network have tanked this series. Was wonderful and witty; now its just season twenty of friends. Charlie Sheen was right...

    When are they just going to rename it Sheldon's Big Bang Theory? He's the only one really worth a carp consistantly. The others have a funny moment here & there, but Sheldon's awesome

      Doesn't matter... this guy is going to troll whomever he pleases... and if no one responds he's going to talk to himself and create a fake dialogue.
