Sheldon's plan is instead to start his own comic book convention. He goes on a search for at least one science fiction celebrity who would appear as a headliner at his convention, barring those who have restraining orders against him already. Sheldon's celebrity stalking doesn't turn out quite the way he expected.

Trivia

Title Reference: The guys can't get tickets to Comic-Con so Sheldon decides to start his own convention. See more »

Goofs

On his list of possible guests, Sheldon spelled Ian McKellen as "Ian McKellan". Since he has an eidetic memory, that would suggest he's never seen McKellen's name written down before (like in the credits for X-Men or Lord of the Rings) See more »

Bad Ending
30 January 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Okay, episode started with great laughter.. everyone trying to get the ticket to comic con.. pressing the refresh button infinite time.. it was getting funnier and funnier. But where i felt show lacked is the ending,. they didn't show what happened to Leonard,Howard and Raj did they come out of that trouble or not? did they even meet the man! what happened nothing is shown

i would say the show was a Sin(x) graph from interval 0 TO Pie.. that is first it got funnier and funnier and eventually it became boring

Asusual Penny,Bernedate And Amy Fowler had the girl talks .. really boring.. i am fed up of this. i still miss that Season 1 of the The big bang theory.. when there were only guys and penny <3. there was more of Science which is the concept of the show.. no i don't know where this show is heading on.. please put the show on the track.. include some science and please throw Amy out of the show ..she is really pathetic.
