Billy Bob Thornton ‘Big Bang Theory’ — Guest Stars As Dr. Lorvin
The Oct. 30, episode was a perfect combination of mixing in serious topics with a hilarious twist — something the show is known for and part of what makes it so wildly popular.
According to the AVClub, the topic of female sexuality began early in the episode when our three favorite ladies were chatting in Penny’s apartment. Bernadette revealed that she had some big and exciting news — that she had been asked to be photographed for a spread about sexy scientists.
Clearly Bernadette is excited about the news and great opportunity as was Penny, but Amy was definitely less than thrilled the site reports — she wants her friend to be featured not just because she is beautiful because she is smart. She feels that all female scientists should be given the same opportunity — great point, Amy!
Penny then reveals that she flirts with doctors to help her sales pitch — cue Billy! Billy, who plays Dr. Lorvis then comes to Penny’s apartment — with flowers in hand — and reveals his love for her.
Leonard (John Galecki) then needs to explain that he and Penny are actually engaged — awkward alert! We applaud the show for taking on a risky subject and tackling it in an effective way that stays true to the shows roots.
