James Earl Jones: [in a steam room] What were you trying to ask me at the strip club?
Sheldon Cooper: Oh. "How much does it cost to get them off my lap?"
James Earl Jones: No, something about a convention.
Sheldon Cooper: Oh, right! Well, my friends and I couldn't get into Comic-Con this year, and I was trying to start my own convention, and I was going to ask if you would be a panelist.
James Earl Jones: Why don't you and your friends come to Comic-Con with me?

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.
