Review - The Big Bang Theory Season 4 Episode 17 The Toast Derivation

As viewers of a television show, we sometimes wonder why someone like Leonard is the main character. He's not that likable and certainly not as funny as Sheldon. But taking a look at the characters as a whole, Leonard is the most normal guy. And as Amy says in "The Toast Derivation," Leonard is the nucleus of the group. Somehow, his relative normalness is where the action is act.

Meanwhile, Sheldon has his own group, a sorry group of misfits who end up having lots of fun but scaring Geordi away. Penny has Bernadette and Amy over, and decides to get a random guy, but we never get to see the actual outcome. That's one of the deficiencies of the show, not following up on certain threads.

As a whole, "The Toast Derivation" doesn't have anything blatantly annoying. Howard isn't a total ass and everything works more or less. The episode could have had something at the end to tie up the three separate groups, but that's the nature of The Big Bang Theory, temporary changes leading to a reset in the next episode.

I already mentioned this on my Twitter account, but I'll repeat it: how did Amy not use Leonardgrad? It's so perfect!

Score: 8.5/10
