Episode 4: The Hook-Up Reverberation

Summary

Raj's girlfriend Emily (Laura Spencer) gives Penny the cold shoulder when she learns about his past. Meanwhile, the guys debate investing in Stuart's comic-book shop and becoming part owners of the business. Comedy, starring Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco

Review

No, you didn’t imagine it: Raj does have a girlfriend. In this episode Emily the dermatologist is introduced to Penny, and there’s a little ripple of disquiet. It turns out Raj has been quite the blabbermouth.

In other news, the guys find the time-honoured ritual of standing around in a comicbook store flicking through fantasy fare a lot less fun since they were forced to find a new shop. “All this loud music and exposed brick,” moans Sheldon. Can they stump up the cash to reopen Stuart’s old shop?

Mayim Bialik has some of the best lines as self-deprecating Amy, and there’s another stunning impression from Simon Helberg as Howard: this time, his mum!
