Knowing how crazy Sheldon is about Spock and Nimoy, this should be fun. :)

Hilarious episode...

Great nostalgia ep since I had a lot of those Mego Star Trek toys when I was a kid. (Yes, I'm showing my age). Mine never talked to me though. Looks like the standalone transporter was a UK exclusive - http://www.megomuseu...ransporter.html I had the Enterprise playset with transporter attached.

As huge a Star Trek fan I was then and still today, I just never got into the Mego toys. I remember the commercials then! That was a nice episode. Nimoy was great in it as a fantasy version of Spock in Sheldon's twisted dream world. The Gorn must have shown up at least 3 times now! Leonard Nimoy must have felt it was respectful yet still having some fun with Star Trek and his image. I thought it worked out well. On par with the Sulu and Starbuck fantasies of Howard. Too bad for Raj.

I enjoyed the expressive poses of tiny Spock and how the positioning changed from shot to shot. Fun episode. - Walter.
Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

I also enjoyed the way Sheldon dealt with the moral implications of his actions with the broken toy.  Hilarious!

especially the first conversation, I had to rewind a the first cut to make sure that, yes, Tiny Spock, had moved!


Hated the episode.


That's a lie.


Loved it.

I watched this episode again. I really hope in the future they can do another episode with Tiny Spock. That was a great device to have Nimoy on as Spock, yet he's not real. Like Howard's fantasy episodes.

Loved the "voice" Spock throughout the Sheldon toy dreams. Have a feeling that sometime in future episodes we'll see the real Spock. Just seemed to much like a teaser of things yet to come.

Maybe Sheldon will succeed in cloning Leonard Nimoy.

I'm thinking that maybe someday Sheldon will win some kind of contest and the grand prize is "A Day with Spock" and when Sheldon gets there it will be Zachary Quinto and not Leonard Nimoy. I wonder how Sheldon would handle that.

I'm not holding my breath. Nimoy sounded a lot different than even when he was on Fringe last season. I'm thinking age is finally catching up with the old Vulcan. But I love Steve's idea about Sheldon winning a contest. That could be very funny.

Trust me Sheldon. It gets ooold after a while. Leonard Nimoy is pretty much retired from in front of the camera work. I can see him coming back for another Tiny Spock episode. If the response from this episode is strong enough, who knows what will happen! I saw a publicity photo of Nimoy with Parsons and he looked good. http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/ I wouldn't have realized, but Nimoy must have been on set to do his lines live with Jim Parsons when they were filming. Yet, they needed time of course to change poses on Tiny Spock.

I thought this episode was funnier than the tiny Spock one. Last episode was focused too much on Sheldon, to the exclusion of the other cast. While this episode was, once again, focused on Sheldon, it was more within the context of the group, although Penny was only in one scene.

Very few shows make me laugh out loud the way this one does. There's just something about Sheldon's antics as played by Parsons and the way he plays off the rest of the ensemble that gets me. Maybe it's because I have a degree of geekiness myself (being an engineer and interested in SF).

What happened to Amy Farrah Fowler? I believe she's been completely absent for two weeks now. Sheldon dress shopping with Mrs. Wolowitz was funny. :laugh:

Pretty sure Amy will be back. Being a supporting character she's not necessary in every episode. Think she and Sheldon will eventually engage in coitus, so the writers have plenty to go on with the two of them in the future.

Man, tonight's was one tough episode to sit through, not because it wasn't funny but for me personally it had the dreaded 'growing up syndrome' that always makes me feel more sad than happy for the characters, going way back to the series finale of Three's Company where Jack finally settled down and Janet got married, it always leaves me with a feeling like the party is ending and the silly good times of the past are over. Hearing Howard tell Penny that he's changed, that he's no longer the skirt-chasing wannabe ladies man we all know was extremely difficult to hear, in a strange way it actually feels as if Howard died tonight. I also feel really bad for Raj, once Howard gets married he's going to be all alone without his partner in crime Howard there to share in the aforementioned skirt-chasing.
