There was certainly some interesting irony at work during Thursday night’s new “Big Bang Theory” season 6 episode. How much so? Let’s just say that the Syfy series “Alphas” managed to get more publicity during the half-hour than it did during the entire two years on the air.
The entire plot line surrounding this story was absolutely hilarious. Sheldon freaked out over the stunning realization that his show was canceled by Syfy, and he needed to undergo “training” from Amy to get over it. This proved to be a useless exercise, but we did have the opportunity to see a plethora of pretty funny moments along the way. The best part of the entire plot (save for the biting-but-true joke about “Heroes”) was watching Sheldon basically undo everything that Penny did to him in a matter of seconds. In the middle of all this, we were unable to ignore how someone as obsessive as Sheldon did not know about the fate of “Alphas” before someone told him about it.
The Leonard and Penny plot focused on whether or not Johnny Galecki’s character could convince his girlfriend that “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” was a great show, just so she would have something to be passionate about. That didn’t happen, but through some soul searching we did learn something else: She is passionate more about her own life, and is going to opt for a more positive approach. (We’ll see just how long that lasts.)
Finally, we figured out that Raj’s relationship with Lucy is seemingly going strong, but after he stumbled across a blog owned by her in which she referred to him as “feminine,” there was a temporary stall.
