On the twelfth day before Christmas, the universe sent to me a Rajtastic episode of The Big Bang Theory.

After a string of storylines centered around the BBT lovebirds in which Raj was reduced to the role of cast jester, our favorite astrophysicist returned with a bang tonight. While the boys played up the geek stereotype while simultaneously playing Dungeons & Dragons, Koothrappali joined the gals, who were reaffirming some stereotypes of their own by sporting scant apparel, for a girls night out. Southern California — where women can dress down all four seasons of the year. This Christmas-themed episode was no “Bath Item Gift Hypothesis,” but it was hilarious and heartfelt, nonetheless.

'The Big Bang Theory' react: Sheldon and Amy get kinky

On the heels of last week’s nude fest, tonight’s episode of The Big Bang Theory was pretty kinky.

We opened with an insightful conversation about Spider-Man‘s theme song, begging the question, can Spider-Man really do whatever a spider can? The boys part ways before Raj’s film festival on movies that kill their franchises. Howard goes to Bernadette’s parents’ house for dinner and Sheldon heads to Amy’s apartment to accompany her to a colleague’s memorial service. READ FULL STORY

'The Big Bang Theory' react: Sheldon and Howard get naked

The episode opened with Sheldon referencing his nipples and closed with him talking about Howard’s penis. Yes, you read that right. Sheldon Cooper is a wild man! His animal instincts first kick in when Howard shares the news that he’s the owner of a new car and new parking space. His spot technically belongs to Sheldon so he throws a hissy fit and demands its return. Never mind the fact that Sheldon doesn’t own a car or know how to drive. “I’m not using my nipples either, why don’t they reassign those?” he asks when Howard suggests the university reassigned the parking spot because Sheldon left it unoccupied. After a call to the president of the university proves to be futile, he challenges Wolowitz at his own game. Sheldon steals his Iron Man helmet (a limited edition collectible!) and wears it casually in the office to prove that he’s making use out of it. Howard then steals his most prized possession, his doctorate, only to hear Sheldon retort, “Go ahead. It’s the only doctorate you’ll ever get.”  READ FULL STORY

Only seven episodes into the season, The Big Bang Theory has already racked up guest stars Howie Mandel, Buzz Aldrin, Stephen Hawking, and now Trekkies Wil Wheaton and LeVar Burton. Aside from bringing in laughs with their repeat cameos, Wheaton and Burton helped ensure the sitcom’s longevity and prosperity. READ FULL STORY

'Big Bang Theory' react: Stephen Hawking and Sheldon play Words With Friends

Genius extraordinaire Stephen Hawking lent his voice to tonight’s episode of The Big Bang Theory, adding another notch on the show’s already porous belt of landing extraordinary, geeky guest stars. The theoretical physicist made a guest appearance last season and has evidently since moved on from assessing Sheldon’s math skills to testing his vocabulary knowledge … wait for it …. with Words With Friends. Yup, that’s right, even the most brilliant scientist in the world is susceptible to Zynga’s influence. While Shelly obsesses about his new “friendship” with his idol, Leonard and Penny go from making love to making war.

'Big Bang Theory' react: Halloween episode is more heartfelt than funny

Christmas came early for Big Bang Theory fans tonight with an epic Halloween special guest starring astronaut Buzz Aldrin. The episode didn’t pack as much comedic punch as last week’s laugh fest or past Halloween episodes, but was scattered with heartfelt moments that proved our favorite geeks have cardiae as big as their cerebra.

Howard may have returned from space, but he still yearns for the wide abyss that he was eager to escape not too long ago. As proven by Sheldon and Leonard’s quasi-scientific study, Howard circumvents every topic of discussion to his NASA mission. His obsessive conversation, coupled with his insistence on wearing a NASA shirt every day and passing out autographed glamour shots of himself in uniform gets old fast. Even sweet, little Bernadette, who was a riot tonight, has to put her foot down. Howard later does a spot-on impression of her squeaky, raised intonation. Bernadette’s attempt to deepen her voice and retort, “I don’t sound like that,” was ingenious. READ FULL STORY

EW's Morning Bite: And the best sound bite from last night is...

Submitted by MD314:

Sheldon: “How could you not find him?”
Leonard: “Because he’s hard to find. If he was easy to find, the books would be called There’s Waldo.”

–Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki on The Big Bang Theory

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Howard Wolowitz returning from space! Our favorite NASA astronaut (no offense, Buzz Aldrin) landed home safely during tonight’s episode of The Big Bang Theory, but didn’t quite receive a hero’s welcome. In my favorite episode of the season, Howard was abandoned by all his loved ones, while Penny and Amy proved that girls rule and boys (like autotrophs) drool.
