Last night, The Big Bang Theory's second episode wasn't terrible, per se, but it just wasn't the laugh-a-minute episode that the first one was. In fact, if it had aired separately next week, we probably would have chalked it up as a fine, adequate episode with a few laughs -- instead it suffered by comparison. Here were the highlights of both episodes (thank god for Amy Farrah Fowler).
