Somewhere, Emmy voters better take note of Mayim Bialik — she is starting to steal every scene she is in on “The Big Bang Theory.” While this episode Thursday night may not be the same sort of rocket science that some of these geeks talk about, it was an incredibly funny take on bringing an awkward date to a wedding — and totally reading into it too deep.
The basic story here is that Amy didn’t want to take Sheldon, so she invited Leonard along for the ride — and the two hit off so well that Amy took it to mean that the guy was in love with him. Along the way, she ended up firing off some many one-liners that it was hard to stop laughing long enough to breathe. All of Amy’s scenes this week were quite frankly funny — they weren’t overly complex or even necessarily the most memorable on the show, but they succeeded in propducing plenty of laughter.
As for the other plot this week, it was a bit of a rehash in that we saw Bernadette trying to get along with Howard’s mother again — though the difference here was that she was actually staying at Howard’s home as a “trial run” to see if she could handle living there. After watching this, the real question is why Bernadette is even with this guy who has to be coddled and made to feel important all the time. There were still some funny moments here, but the story was not as fresh.
Have you come to love the character of Amy more and more ever since she was unveiled?
