"Are we still dating?" → November 15, 2012 Warning: full episode spoilers follow.
If there's a running theme with my Big Bang Theory reviews this season, it's that I no longer enjoy episodes centered around Leonard and Penny's relationship drama. Their little song and dance routine has gone on for far too long without any tangible growth or evolution. "The 43 Peculiarity" illustrated how stagnant their relationship has become, though it did offer a ray of light and reason to hope for change in the future.
