Sheldon Cooper: I don't want another parking space. I want my parking space. It's perfect. It's a corner spot, cutting the risk of door-dings in half. It's a mere 28 steps from the building entrance. The nearby tree provides shade on hot days and is also home to a delightful squirrel. Which is fortuitous because most squirrels are real jerks.

"The Parking Spot Escalation" is another great ep of "The Big Bang Theory"
9 December 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this ep of "The Big Bang Theory": Howard has parked his new car in Sheldon's spot. What, you say, Sheldon has a parking spot when he doesn't have a car or doesn't even know how to drive? Yes, and because of that, the university president has given it to Howard and Sheldon's ego is very much bruised. So he takes Howard's Iron Man helmet. The fight doesn't end there as now Bernadette and Amy are now arguing about Howard's new important status being an astronaut vs. Sheldon's theories yet to be proved. Oh, and Raj has been debating with his friends about how a zombie and a mummy are basically the same which Leonard, Sheldon, and Howard all disagree with...Another excellent ep of "The Big Bang Theory" that fires on all cylinders! The best one this season yet! So on that note, I definitely recommend this one, "The Parking Spot Escalation"!
