The Big Bang Theory 5.20 “The Transporter Malfunction” Review
At last, we got to see more about Raj’s relationship problems, it’s something people have been waiting for some time on The Big Bang Theory, although we aren’t certain concerning his sexuality, but who cares, it was perfect nonetheless. Speaking of his sexual orientation, we have been hearing about it from his time since the show started, they all gave hints and commented that he might be homosexual. And the writers have been taking advantage of it to the max, like what they did with his relationship with Howard, and the whole virtual kiss they had.
And now, everybody knows that Raj is gay, his friends, family members, even his date Lakshmi knows. But it seems it is very clear for everyone expect Raj himself, as he doesn’t believe that he is gay. And it was great seeing the writers of The Big Bang Theory finally addressing this issue, because everyone was getting sick of the repetitive comments and hints. So actually confronting it on the show was really amazing and a move that all the viewers were waiting for.
And since it was all about Raj, he is the winner of the most hilarious quotes of the evening, especially his “baloney likes girls” quote, and the line when he said that he likes to boogie with girls, it was just hilarious. And it was amazing seeing that a cute Yorkie dog is what persuaded him to give up the whole fake marriage idea. It seems that with every one finding their couple, it made us all wish that Raj would find his soul mate soon, but until this happens, we are glad he has the dog. And despite the fact that the show doesn’t continue all storylines, but everyone is hoping that dog gets to stay, for a few episodes at least.
So while Raj is dealing with his weird and twisted love life, we got to see Sheldon having relationship woes as well, but with, Spock. Seeing these Spock action figures in the first dream was hilarious and amazing. And the moment that it was revealed that captain Spock, Leonard Nimoy, would be featured on the show, but only in voice, everyone was worried that it was going to be a waste, but the way they approached the whole Spock storyline, it was great and hilarious at the same time.
