When we saw that “The Big Bang Theory” was going to do an entire episode themed all around a scavenger hunt, our hopes were high that this was going to be something that would be enjoyable for almost everyone. It featured unlikely pairings for some of the characters, Neil Diamond, and puzzles for them to solve in order to declare themselves the victor in the random game devised by Raj.
The pairings were Sheldon and Penny, Howard and Amy, and also Bernadette and Leonard. The person who clearly had it the worst here was Leonard, mostly because Howard’s wife managed to abuse Leonard verbally for almost the entire episode. Meanwhile, it basically became an entire Neil Diamond tribute for Howard and Amy, and Sheldon and Penny mostly dealt with the fact that he was his usual self, and Penny was constantly ragged on about being not smart enough to be good at this.
The end results of this were very, very funny, and it felt almost like this episode could have been an hour long and been just as (if not even more) effective. This is some of the downside that comes with coming up with such a great idea, since the only flaw in it was that it would have been great to see some of these unusual pairings end up leading to a new moment or two where we actually got an opportunity to get to know something new about the characters. Instead, it was just a series of jokes, and a great twist at the end from Raj that everyone was a winner and it ended up leading to a revolt.
