Review - The Big Bang Theory Season 4 Episode 6 The Irish Pub Formulation

I know Kaley Cuoco broke her leg and all, but couldn't the writers have tried to include her in some way? It's completely bizarre that Leonard would sleep with Raj's sister in the episode and Penny isn't there to talk about it. The past two episodes have proceeded as if Penny was never part of the show at all, much less an integral character.

Please, something! Say she's on vacation and have her talk on the phone. Say she's visiting relatives. But don't write her out as if she never existed.

Without a Penny in the mix, "The Irish Pub Formulation" is completely reliant on Sheldon and Leonard. The result is a one-dimensional episode which has the usual tired jokes. Sheldon does his usual crazy person thing while Leonard tries to get him to go to sleep so he can get Priya into his room. Sheldon eventually finds out, leading to a big confrontation at the lunch table where everyone's dirty secrets get let out and they yell at each other before apologizing.

Score: 8.0/10
