Best: The Big Bang Theory
Not sure if you knew this, but unless he’s got some booze in his belly, Raj can’t talk to women face to face. It’s an easy fact to miss if you’ve never watched the show in your life — otherwise, the “quirk” is one of the major downsides of the series. Fortunately, “The Bon Voyage Reaction,” in pattern with the rest of the perfectly fine Season 6, chose to actually grow its characters rather than accept the status quo. So now, Raj is a regular chatterbox around the ladies. There’s not too much else to say about the episode, other than the fact that the writers are really quite good at Star Trek jokes.

6. Bernadette (The Big Bang Theory)
Remember when Howard got this petite little girlfriend who was sweet and super smart? Well, yeah, thanks to reruns we do, but now he’s got a wife who is often quite selfish, has a temper and is outright rude on many occasions (take the Cinderella incident, or how she treats Sheldon, or anything with his mother). Adding Wolowitz to her name certainly didn’t do much for her.
4. Amy and Sheldon (The Big Bang Theory)
We’d never have thought Sheldon would have found a girlfriend, but then we never knew of the existence of Amy Farrah-Fowler. She willingly agrees to his bizarre contractual relationship rules, and we’d love to sit and watch movies (don’t worry, we know where not to sit) and eat Chinese food with them, and just geek out and watch her desperately try to make their relationship more physical.
