'The Big Bang Theory' -- Top Ten Favorite Episodes, Part I

Since I watched all current forty episodes of The Big Bang Theory in such analytical detail, I decided to narrow it down to my top ten favorite episodes. A handful of them were easy picks, but I wound up with thirteen at the end of my selection and had to whittle it down a bit more, which I did by basing it on the Sheldon and Penny interaction and then the degree of issue I had with those remaining three. This is my final list, one or two (definitely one, LOL!) may surprise, but I really was looking at the overall quality of the episode, both A- and B- stories, as well as bottom-line how much I simply laughed my ass off.

Alas the post was too long, so I've split into different entries. This is the first five, and here is Part II. So, behind the cut are the half of my top ten favorite episodes list, including my reviews, Sheldon and Penny analysis, and favorite moments, plus images and clips from each episode. They are presented in chronological order, and I culled the commentary from The Big Bang Theory Breakdowns that can be found over at sheldon_penny.

Alas the post was too long, so I've split into different entries. This is the second five, and here is Part I. So, behind the cut are the second half of my top ten favorite episodes list, including my reviews, Sheldon and Penny analysis, and favorite moments, plus images and clips from each episode. They are presented in chronological order, and I culled the commentary from The Big Bang Theory Breakdowns that can be found over at sheldon_penny.

Merlin, Series 2 Premiere

Watched the season premiere of Merlin. What's that you say? I thought you stopped watching that after the second episode of series one? Well, I did, but a bunch of my fellow Sheldon/Penny shipper friends kept going on and on about it, so I figured, alright, I'm done with my glorious NCIS -- damn, I still need to write that post! -- I'll give it another go. Overall, I found that I did very much enjoy it and it's cheesy, cheesy fun, with some heft building towards the end of the season. I'm not one for slash, but even I can't help but marvel in all of the slashy goodness of Merlin/Arthur, and now we're onto series two ... (Spoiler for series 1 and the premiere behind the cut.)
