Bravo to THE BIG BANG THEORY for their absolutely hilarious and absurdly sexy episode last night in “The Fish Guts Displacement Episode”. While the story set up one storyline involving fishing, it was the comic sensual interactions between the Amy and Sheldon characters that really stole this show, and left the viewing audience aching sore with laughter.
The wholly naive, emotionless, and absolutely clueless nature of the Mr. Spock-like Sheldon character soon found his attempts to care for Amy, home sick with the flu, manipulated into sensual acts, by the lovesick, but clearly nerdy young woman.
At one point, Sheldon offers to rub vapor rub onto Amy’s chest to help her illness, but she openly hopes for it to become a sensual act between the two, resulting in sexual arousal. And likewise, an offer of a bath, becomes another opportunity for sensual fun for the lovesick Amy.
But, it was Sheldon’s offer to spank Amy as a punishment that set the episode up for one of it’s most absurdly funny and sexually charged moments ever in this entire series. Sheldon naively fell into this trap of giving Amy a sexually arousing spanking, which closed this episode with a memorable moment of groundbreaking outrageous comedy.
Amy clearly was looking for a sexually arousing experience here, and her absurdly funny reactions here were great comedy. Erotic spankings are a funny sort of sexual bedroom fantasy among consenting adults, a form of juvenile high school type sex fantasy that is meant to send more blood down to the genitals to aid in more sexual arousal. And, to see the Amy character clearly “getting off” on this kinky sexual role playing game was pretty funny here.
But, this now leaves the writers of the show looking to further advance the script with Amy’s one sided relationship with Sheldon in future episodes. You just know that the emotionless Sheldon is incapable of a real relationship with Amy, but that sure doesn’t mean a lot of comedy while Amy tries hard to create one. The writers of this show have now set up a very challenging task for themselves here.
But, last night’s episode is getting rave reviews on the Web today. Hailed as very funny by both critics as well as the viewing public. Great comedy here.
