During the taping Amy, who is in directing the show, keeps correcting Wil's acting. Both Amy and Wil take a dislike to each other and Sheldon is caught in the middle between friend and girlfriend. Amy tells Sheldon that he should stick up for his girlfriend and she leaves. Naive Sheldon takes her departure as her solution to the problem. Later Leonard suggests that Amy was mad at him and that he should call her. Sheldon calls Amy in jest; however, she confirms that she is mad. Sheldon is amazed that Amy was mad and that Leonard was right. First Sheldon tries to gives her a Star Trek DVD set so she can become more familiar with Wil.

Goofs

After Sheldon comes back from the dinner at Hometown Buffet (which he had with Wil Wheaton), he tells Leonard that the manager gave them a table close to the frozen yogurt machine. Hometown Buffet is a "seat yourself" restaurant. There are no assigned tables, nor is a customer shown to a table. The manager would not have given them a table anywhere. See more »

[first lines]
Sheldon Cooper: Hello. I'm Dr. Sheldon Cooper. And welcome to Sheldon Cooper Presents: Fun with Flags. Before we get started, I'd like to announce the winner of our Design Your Own Flag competition, but I can't. The only entry was from gamygamer seventy-five, and I know that was a jpeg of your buttocks. Now, this week we have a very special episode where we explore the flags of the popular entertainment franchise 'Star Trek', and to help me I'm pleased to introduce internet personality, uh, former...

Crazy Credits

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #398

I need to apologize. In an earlier vanity card I made a derisive comment about a popular reality show because I thought its premise - a group of single women compete with one another to win the affections of, and ultimately marry, an eligible man - was more threatening to the sanctity of marriage than gay people tying the knot. After careful consideration, I now realize that I couldn't have been more wrong. My mistake was that I was looking at the show through the tired old eyes of 60's feminism. But we are clearly in a post-feminist era. The patriarchal sexism that treated women as chattel and dictated how much they could earn or how much control they could have over their own bodies is a thing of the past, a curious relic of a dark, unenlightened time. Likewise, the idea that a woman without a man was somehow incomplete has long ago been consigned to the overflowing dustbin of humankind's misbegotten thinking. Women are now free to do anything they want, and that includes going on a reality show and using all their female wiles to snag Mr. Right.

I really don't know what else to say except, "I'm sorry and, um... you go, girl!" See more »

"The Habitation Configuration" ep of "The Big Bang Theory" was a pretty good ep and that's enough for this show considering all the hilarious ones previous
6 December 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

In this ep of "The Big Bang Theory": Amy's directing Sheldon's "Fun with Flags" show with guest Wil Wheaton who brings the Federation of Planets flag. Unfortunately, Amy's first-time status concerning said job gives her an ego which ruffles Wil and Sheldon, not really knowing what to do, does not defend his girlfriend in front of him, resulting in her leaving and Wil and Sheldon going to dinner together instead. Meanwhile, Bernadette is wondering when hubby Howard is moving out of his mother's house and with her. Howard does seem to still spend all his time at his mom's, doesn't he? I'll stop there and just say while there's plenty of funny lines and scenes, it's not as hilarious as previous eps this season. Still, it's a good enough ep this "The Habitation Configuration" so I give this one a pass...
