  • Episode Summary

    The guys have a road trip in order to attend to a comic book convention, dressed as "Star Trek: The Next Generation". Stopping to take some photos in costume, Leonard's car is stolen. Meanwhile the girls are at home trying to figure out a comic book.

    Who was the Episode MVP ?

    • Turnabout is fair play

      7.0
      For once, the girl half of the show was pretty good - as patronising to nerd-life as the comic book shop scene and the initial aftermath, the follow-up as the girls got drawn into the whole mythos was well done, and fairly funny as well; even Amy and Bernadette got good lines ("How can Red Hulk be Worthy? / You don't know his life!"). On the other hand, the guy half of the show was pretty slow & short of humour.moreless

      Spoiler Alert!



      Gotta love this episode! Made me happy to see the girls trying to understand the guys, and I found myself wanting to join in on the discussion. Wish the guys had gone through with their mission. It makes me wonder if they're going to have their love for comics and "nerd stuff" tainted, or that they might even "grow up", like evolving. I love them being the awkward superhero loving nerds they are, and for me at least that episode, whether or not it affects future episodes, will niggle at the back of my mind.moreless
    • Nice to see Big Bang Theory coming back

      9.0
      I hope there will be more episodes to come like this one, funny, sheldon-jokes, nerd-references, star-trek, comic-con,... Also hope the next one will continue where this one left off, and that the show doesn't forget that Penny & the girls now know a little something about comic books. Previous season was not memorable, and the creators have to put some more tension in the storyline, like it used to be with the Penny & Leonard episodes in the first seasons.moreless

    • Nice to see Matt Battaglia

      9.5
      Didn't recognize him instantly but did as soon as he spoke - nice to see Matt Battaglia back in action even if it was just a bit part (although a good one). He's been quite inconspicuous the last couple of years, and it was good to see that he's still in the business and keeping himself up.
