Season 5 Episode 13
As season five nears the half point, Leonard and Penny’s relationship starts to get complicated (but when hasn’t it been?). In this episode, Leonard fantasizes about asking Penny out again on a date after two years of just being friends. I personally think they make a bad pair. They are both nice, but I think Penny is just too immature at this point in her life to fully commit to a long term relationship.
There were several things that appeared in the show I’d be interested in knowing how other people felt about it. The first was when they were playing the German game, Catan! I’ve been playing it for about six years now and I have to say that it is a must have for any table top enthusiast. It never gets old, and the game fits any situation or demographic. It’s an economy based game based around gathering resources and building settlements. The writers of the show hit the nail on the head when they used wood jokes while playing the game. If you’ve played it you’ll find out pretty quickly that immature jokes are sure to ensue. So if you have some money burning a hole in your pocket, I would wholeheartedly recommend picking up a copy. They also have video game forms on console arcades, but my personal preference is to play the actual board game.
The next subject from this episode I want to address was when Sheldon received his spock standup. I don’t want to turn this into a versus conversation because I think it goes without out saying Leonard Nimoy is the only spock, but how did you think Zachary Quinto did as spock in the new movie? I really liked him in heroes as sylar, but I thought his performance in star trek was questionable. Then again I have pretty high standards for anyone who wants to take on that role.
And with that said, I think I’ve said everything I’m interested in saying about this episode.
