The Big Bang Theory 4.15 "The Benefactor Factor" Review

The brainiacs are back again this week in a new episode of The Big Bang Theory. With Leonard faced with a tough decision regarding science and somehow sex, you would expect that TBBT would create such a story that would entertain us viewers for the whole half hour. Instead we were left with 30 minutes of horrible jokes, a not so great guest star, and a story that makes me fear for TBBT.

This week centered around Leonard and the rest of the gang trying to get funding for equipment at their respected labs.
