It was such a treat to watch Raj in this episode. That was just an amazing storyline for him. Really enjoyed it. I kind of like his new love interest, quirky, weird and ... damaged. As for the rest of the episode, I have to point out one thing - the RUBIC CUBE!!! Straight out of Sheldons pants!!! - LOL! Superb!

"Fun with flags" is a terrible concept. The first episode with it was a disaster, and happily this week it was only a minor part of the show. I hope the writers put it in the trash before it ruins the show. Raj's new girlfriend is great, and should be a welcome addition to the show.

@ViperGeek - Thanks for the imdb site, some interesting things there like comedy band and how very much she's worked.

This was one of the funnier episodes of the season. Both my wife and I had laugh out loud moments.

Raj's whole storyline was excellent.

Maybe I was the only one, but I thought Penny's acting in Streetcar Named Desire was awful and that was part of the joke. That her friends thought she was great when she really wasn't.

I think the girl Raj is seeing is thin, sure, but she's very attractive. I also think the way she portrayed her shyness did ring true. I hope they keep her around and develop the relationship. So far, what seems different about her to the other female regulars is that she seems to be thinking, but keeping what she thinks to herself -- which might mean an ability to blurt out some great lines down the road. I hope she's an addition to the show, because I think she's great!

I have a totally different take than Marie because I love the character they introduced for Raj. She's very relatable because there are many women (and men) that suffer from severe social anxiety (which I'm assuming she has). Amy, Penny, and Bernadette are quite interesting female characters in their own right so I can only imagine that over time Raj's girlfriend will turn out to be a fantastic character to add to the group :)
I do agree though, that it was great seeing Penny's acting skills, and how proud Leonard was of her.. so sweet.

Raj finally got a girl and a storyline.Yay! Not to be picky, and maybe I'm biased because seeing Mayim Bialik in real life makes me know Amy can be made beautiful on the show at some point, but this girl didn't only look plain she looked scrawny and ill. I know it's not all about looks but, well, television is a visual medium. The show already has a frump with Amy no need for more. Raj is handsome and smart surely it would make more sense to cure him of selective mutism than have him settle for whatever he can get.
Fun with Flags was hilarious. Once Sheldon took Penny's advice about relaxing, he went so far with that idea that I thought for a minute he was going to forget about flags and make a pass at her. I loved seeing Penny and Sheldon interact both there and over the invitation to the play.
I'm glad a few of her friends got to appreciate Penny's acting. I hope they can find a way to exploit that aspect by getting her a theater gig in town.
