Great Comedy Great Everything!
15 March 2021 | by raybobloveSee all my reviews

Truly one of the best episodes of a sitcom ever on television. There won't be any spoilers here about what actually happens. This review is more about the story structure.

The Sheldon plot line moved Sheldon into a new position for us to see him in, and we felt such genuine compassion for the little guy. Life's lessons can be tough, but that's how we learn, right?

The fun surprise twist ending in the Georgy plot line -- while not as far out there as the one in The Sixth Sense -- nonetheless made us realize with glee that we never saw that one coming. And we were delightfully happy for everyone involved.

And in the Connie plot line, guest star Reba McIntyre pulls off a feat I've only seen once before, and that was by Derek Jacobi in a Frasier episode entitled "The Show Must Go Off." Definitely a must-see.

This is comedy gold. I'll probably watch it 10 more times.
