Storyline

Immediately upon the guys' arrival back from the three month long Arctic expedition, Leonard, Howard and Raj make a confession to Sheldon about their participation in Sheldon's research at the North Pole. This confession threatens Sheldon's research, his job and his friendship with the threesome. Sheldon's mother may at least have the answer to fixing the friendship. Meanwhile, Penny is really happy to see Leonard home. Leonard is equally happy to be home to see Penny. But every time they are about ready to embark on their first sexual encounter with each other, something always seems to get in the way. Written by Huggo

Crazy Credits

At the end of the credits vanity card #256 is shown, which is a picture captioned with "THANKS, COMIC-CON!" The picture has been manipulated from it's original form. This is very apparent as many audience members have been duplicated and or mirrored. One of note is the man wearing a green shirt who appears on both lower corners of the picture. See more »

Great show, ruined in season 3..
15 February 2011 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The show in it self is great, if you can stand to watch it. I certainly can't.

The issue is pretty simple, they filmed it in-front of an live audience that laughs all the the time in a really laud and annoying way, and it do really sound (and seem) like they laugh on queue, someone holding up a sign saying "laugh now".

It totally ruins the show, a show that properly is good, but i cant watch for more then 5mins before I get too annoyed.

So before you run out an buy this season check it up on youtube or something and see if you can stand the annoyance. If you can't then don't waste your money and time.
