Episode 18: The Mommy Observation

Summary

Sheldon receives a nasty surprise when he visits his mother in Houston, while Raj's murder mystery party causes conflict for the rest of the gang members. Comedy, starring Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco.

Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

“Sheldon’s out of town, so we can do whatever we want to do.” So says Raj, who unleashes on the gang another of his infamous theme evenings. Sadly, his futuristic murder-mystery meets with telling inertia.

The sound effects-assisted “extravaganza” does, however, solicit some wonderful what-if discussions, and thrusts second-string hero Stuart (Kevin Sussman) briefly into the limelight. He gets tonight’s big “ahh” moment and stars in an excellent pay-off.

Meanwhile, Sheldon is horrified to see his mother making whoopee with a stranger. It leads to a frank exchange of views, and a quaint line about giving “that good-time Charlie the heave-ho”.
