Still got it.

Im glad to see the Big Bang theory has not decided to become too political now that they are a big show. The office went straight down hill once they started pushing political agendas on its viewers. Im not going to say too much about this episode as I don't want to ruin it for anyone. However, if you have never watched the show, this is a good one to start with. Sheldon is his classic, genius, clueless self. I do miss Howard and his antics since he got married. I was reading the reviews on here and I have to say they are just embarrassing! There should be at least an age requirement to post reviews on IMDb. Anyway, great show. Worth the 30 minutes of your life.

Sheldon really puts his foot in his mouth in "The Egg Salad Equivalency" ep of "The Big Bang Theory"

Author: tavm from Baton Rouge, La.

When Sheldon overhears about his assistant Alex hitting on Leonard, he first asks Amy, Bernadette, and Penny as a group what he should do. Bern says talk to her while Penny can't over the fact her boyfriend liked Alex's advances. Oh, and Sheldon first used other names but, obviously that wasn't going to work. When he does talk to Alex, he says stuff that made her very uncomfortable so now she files a complaint against human resources. And it just snowballs from there...Another very funny ep of "The Big Bang Theory" but, really, Sheldon really went too far this time! In real life, I can't imagine him still having the friends he has here but since this is just television, they'll probably forgive him anyway. So, yeah, "The Egg Salad Equivalency" hits on all cylinders but let's hope Sheldon really watches it next time when discussing "female" problems...

One of the most politically incorrect episodes in the history of sitcom

Author: aryafsharm from Iran

Sitcoms usually generate humor through creating situations (hence the name) and it's been classically so that they don't usually feature heavy topics, strong language or sensitive themes. Shows like Seinfeld have ignored this successfully but most shows (Big Bang Theory included) have stuck to that formula more or less, which is why this episode stands out so much from Big Bang Theory episodes ever, and generally from a typical sitcom show.

Without spoiling anything, This episode features one of Sheldon's classic moments, where, without realizing the plethora lines that he is crossing, crosses them all, which makes for some hilarious super politically incorrect moments. The real mastery of the writing here is, that firstly, it's not so awful that anyone can justifiably be offended by it, but also the hilarity of the fact that the person being politically way incorrect isn't even aware of it.

This is definitely an episode you should watch if you think Big Bang Theory is not funny anymore. I think It continues to be one of the best shows ever and this episode is a tiny reason why.

nice episode

For me not the best one from TBBT.. but it will keep up.

When Sheldon came to know about that his assistant hitting on his friend Leonard ....He calls sheldoncooper:council of ladies ..to find the solution to his problem that As Alex should only worried about him as she is her assistant. As per suggestions he explains Alex that all womens are slaves to there urgencies and compared to egg salad sandwich.. shows some not good pics on diseases causes them. later Sheldon gets call from human resource for his behavior with staff at campus. Sheldon explains her has 'he done favor to her ,and puts all his friends in trouble, by telling their secrets. ' most interesting part is when Sheldon assigns his lessons to Alex.. thinking he is too intelligent to waste is time for.
