Following Ramona kissing him, Sheldon has flown to New Jersey to ask Amy to marry him in the realization that he wants Amy to be the only woman ever to kiss him. Before doing so, he believes he has asked the advice and permission from the appropriate person. What happens with the proposal may depend on how Sheldon acts around Amy's Princeton colleagues, who only know of her brilliance and not his idiosyncrasies. Meanwhile, Bernadette and Howard learn of another upcoming change to their personal situation. In trying to deal with the surprising turn of events, Bernadette and Howard look to Leonard and Penny not so much for advice but rather to ask them for a favor in dealing with the news a bit easier. And in light of Sheldon's marriage proposal, the two singletons, Raj and Stuart, continue to commiserate with each other. Their want to do so may change with a turn of fortunes. Written by Huggo

User Reviews

The show that ages superbly along with its long standing talented cast.
10 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

The show has lost none of it's sparkle, Enjoyed watching the 1st episode of season 11 as much as any previous episode, The material reflects the age cycle that we all must endure, Still has the enthralling humour that captivated me in season 1. Long may the show keep developing rather than stay stuck in a 2006/7 time loop. The only aspect of the show that is unaltered since 2006 is the awesome comedy.
