- Caroline Preece at Den of Geek! - I like how the show is following Penny’s career path at an almost realistic way, having her grow tired of the grind off-screen but not ignoring it completely. If nothing else, it’s more interesting than her trying and failing to be an actress but, as fun as Zach always is to have around, I’m not crazy about it being used to briefly introduce a love triangle. Perhaps this will be dropped given that Zach’s unseen fiance vetoed the idea, but it’s been obvious for a good long while that the show needs to do something new with Leonard and Penny. A competitor for her affections is an obvious route (and we know this show loves its obvious routes) to go down and would tie in with the idea that, now that they’re married, Leonard isn’t trying as hard in the relationship. Howard and Bernadette get a very small part of the episode with the latter making fun of her husband for being into juggling when he was younger. To get his own back Howard digs for dirt on her from Bernadette’s mother, and finds out that she used to be into ventriloquist dummies. The dummy in question - Tammy-Jo St Cloud - is terrifying, and the scene should be prefaced by a trigger warning for dummy-phobes.
