Raj's big time dating , Penny's acting decisions and a good one!
4 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

A good one for sure

I think Raj's dating scenario is the better part of the episode. It comes with a good amount of comedy and some romance. It feels that Emily's character should be in the show frequently.

Penny's decision making about doing a cheesy role or not, part also has some hilarity. Wil does a fair job in this episode and his reputation in the show is kind of going down with the episode.

At last I don't really admire much the Sheldon and Amy's part.This part has some unrealistic acts which we don't often see in the show. Although some of Sheldon's good jokes comes with this episode like every other episode.

** Howard and Bernadette, doing a good little cameo in the episode. Penny gives some expected and every day facial expressions which I think she shouldn't do every now and then.

Actual rating: 8.8
