Storyline

Their excitement is brought to an abrupt end when they speak to Colonel Williams both about the year they've put into the first phase and about the details about the second phase. They have to figure out a way to deal with the emotional roller coaster. As such, Amy has troubles telling Sheldon, who she not only hopes loves her but believes relies on her, that she has been offered an important research fellowship for the summer at Princeton.

Show is getting old and tired
8 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you read the caption for this episode, you probably don't need to watch it. If you're a fan of the show, you could write this yourself. The whole series is showing its age. Characters are flat and stale, some are more annoying than ever. Sheldon, for being so smart, doesn't learn much. Leonard stutters and stammers his way through each scene. The ladies manage to keep it fresh, although Penny seems to flounder. I hope this is the last season. It's sad to see a once fresh idea go stale.
