Storyline

Sheldon is totally distraught - even to the point of calling in the police and trying to call in the FBI - after someone has hacked into his World of Warcraft (2004) account and stolen all his information and his "virtual" possessions. With Howard, Leonard and Raj on the case with Sheldon trolling though the game with made up new characters, Howard is able to determine that the thief is someone by the name of Todd Zarnecki who lives in nearby Carlsbad. Sheldon convinces the guys to drive to Carlsbad to confront the thief. But without a plan upon arrival, will they manage to get Sheldon's things back? Meanwhile, the primary topic of conversation between Penny, Bernadette and Amy is how Penny groomed Leonard to be a "cool" boyfriend for some other woman - Priya - who now refuses to even let her see Leonard. Bernadette and Amy try to convince Penny that she needs to take some sort of action against Priya in return. Written by Huggo

Trivia

In the opening scene, in which Sheldon discovers his account has been hacked, he says "It is time to cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war!" He's quoting Marcus Antonius in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, who is preparing to strike back at Caesar's assassins. It is also quoted by General Chang in Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country.

Goofs

During the epilogue, Penny and Priya are walking up the stairs (which wrap around a disabled elevator shaft) to the fourth floor. As they reach the landings of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors, the caution tape is changed on the elevator doors so that the same set can be used for the three floors. However, the light fixture on the far left (near the up stairs) has the same stain on the shade, indicating that it is indeed the same set. See more »

Crazy Credits

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #337

Whenever I've gone through tough times, well-meaning people have told me that God/the universe does not give us more than we can handle. Well, I've been going through a tough time recently, and sure enough, that old saying has been tossed my way on several morose occasions. After some careful consideration, I've decided it's bull$#*!. As an aphorism, it only makes sense in hindsight - after you've managed to crawl from the wreckage of whatever calamity that God/the universe decided to toss your way. No one ever uses it to comfort someone who's been hit by a bus or turned into a puddle of goo by flesh-eating bacteria (although in the right circumstance, that could be a hoot). Another thing I hear a lot is, "this too shall pass." Again, I know these are words meant to reassure, but somehow they always leave me feeling that heartbreak, rage and grief are going to come shooting out of me like kidney stones through an inflamed urethra. For someone in crisis, I think a more accurate and helpful assessment of reality would be, "Love, sex, food, friendship, art, play, beauty and the simple pleasure of a cup of tea are all well and good, but never forget that God/the universe is determined to kill you by whatever means necessary." Consider trying that next time you're called on to do some consoling. If you're feeling impish, you might also try, "According to the rules of comedy, your suffering will be funny after an undetermined length of time. Maybe not while you're having your gangrenous leg sawed off, watching your home burn down or learning how to be intimate with your cellmate, but, in the big scheme of things, soon." See more »

Sheldon wants his computer game back on "The Zarnecki Incursion" ep of "The Big Bang Theory"
14 November 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In a nutshell for this last season ep of "The Big Bang Theory": Sheldon has his computer game stolen from under him. He calls the police but they can't help him. Howard and Raj, however, have found out who hacked into his computer: a Todd Zarnecki (Christopher Douglas Reed). So they all resolve to go to his house in Pasadena to confront him. Meanwhile, Penny is complaining to Amy and Bernadette about Priya's current pull on Leonard...Another quite funny ep of "TBBT" especially the part near the end when Penny goes with the boys back to...well, just watch the show. Amy, especially, has great lines. This show just keeps getting better and better. Now I'll review the next one...
