Drive-By Review: Big Bang Theory - 'The Friendship Contraction'

If a show isn't getting the amount of hits on its review articles that I find to be worthy of making an effort, it will fall into the drive-by review category until the hits improve. That means that I will give a very quick impression and an overall score. Ready? Here is the first one ever.

Leonard and Sheldon's roommate agreement is nullified and then reinstated, with conditions, and Howard's attempt to get himself a cool astronaut nickname turns out badly for him when his mother's screaming gets him tagged as "Fruit Loops."

If I had to rate this one I'd give it:

84 out of 100

It was an average episode with very few laughs. The Leonard and Penny semi-romance element is still boring. Leonard is more interesting when miserable.


  1. Yeah mediocre episode. A great episode on the same night was Archer, I assume that Archer fits into the same category as TBBT since you have not reviewed it since the season premier.

    I was in tears it was that funny especially why fighting on a train is not as cool as people think.

    1. You obviously don't read the site very carefully... I reviewed last week's episode of ARCHER. I just haven't seen this week's yet.
