Wheaton takes on 'Big Bang Theory'

Full disclosure: I am not a " Star Trek" fan.

But even I have seen “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” and that made Monday night’s “Big Bang Theory” all the funnier to me.

Watching the character of Sheldon plot out and enact his revenge against guest star Wil Wheaton (playing a slightly devious version of himself) was hilarious. I remember Wheaton as young Wesley Crusher on “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and I imagined geeks everywhere were enraptured. (Editor's note: Given Crusher's wimpy reputation, maybe they were infuriated.)

I am a huge fan of this show and witnessing the usually unflappable and coldly rational Sheldon become positively unglued at the prospect of facing Wheaton – whose failure to show up at a Mississippi "Star Trek" convention in 1995 devastated a young Sheldon – had me howling with laughter.

When Sheldon stared daggers at Wheaton across the room during a card game competition and uttered a phrase which caused Wheaton to turn to his companion and ask “Did he just say 'revenge is a dish best served cold' in Klingon?” I was reminded of just how genius the show can be.

That plotline, coupled with great moments like the revelation that hottie neighbor Penny had a childhood crush on Ernie from "Sesame Street" (“The heart wants what it wants”) along with Wolowitz’s sort-of-kinda-new girlfriend, makes me want to say this was one of the show’s best episodes ever.

What did you think? Are you loving this show as much as I am? Do you hope the producers bring Wheaton back, especially after his dirty trick of playing the “MeMaw” card?

    Для тех, кто ценит уют и комфорт в своем доме в любое время года, очень важным вопросом становится правильный
    выбор кондиционера для дома.http://www.gentle-breeze-only.narod.ru/history/montaj_ustanovka_split-sistem/
    Как приятно бывает войти в прохладное помещение после знойной улицы! http://www.gentle-breeze-only.narod.ru/history/kakie_bivayut_konditsioneri/
    Кондиционеры всегда могут обеспечивать комфортную температуру в помещении – и особенно это необходимо жарким летом.
    Чем ближе это время года, тем более актуальным становится продажа и установка кондиционеров. Воронеж при этом не исключение.

    What makes this show great is the mix of characters. They don't just have a central funny character and surround them with not so funny characters, like so many other sitcoms. EVERYBODY on this show is a laugh riot, and they all contribute. Even the girlfriend is screamingly funny (See the episode where she slips and falls in the bathtub). Even people they bring on for cameos (Wil Wheaton, Wozniak, Christine Baranski, etc.) are well chosen and placed. For me, the best episodes are the ones with Sheldon's mother (Laurie Metcalf).

    Our family cannot get enough of this show. We have had BBT marathons a couple of times now. To say this show will be cancelled after this season is ridiculous. This show is brilliant and will last for years to come. I must say that the Penny/Leonard relationship has me worried for the future. I enjoyed watching the chase of a naive geek after the hot blonde. So far the writers have handled it well. I've watched 30 Rock... funny, but not interested. Too much pushing of the Liberal agenda. I don't remember Baldwin being nearly as good as Parsons either. Keep it up CBS. Please change the time back though. The other line-up shows are not appropriate for younger viewers.

    Monday CBS is the only day when we plop in front of the TV and don't change channels. However, it is also a day that forces us to make the compromises that allow a marriage to "work".

    Both of us like "How I Met Your Mother", though we laugh at different parts and like different characters. (My favorite situations are usually the rudest/crudest, which my wife only "tolerates".) I like "Accidentally on Purpose", which my wife hates. I love "Two-and-a-Half Men", and my wife likes it well enough, however she hates Sheen's character, while his role is one of my all-time favorites. In exchange for not leaving the family room during the last two shows, I have to sit through CSI-Miami and that over-acting Horatio. (I try to ruin the show by guessing who did what when and how!)

    However, both of us absolutely LOVE The Big Bang. Sheldon has GOT to be one of the funniest characters ever on television! The thing is, EACH of the characters are quite unique, and yet lovable, despite their HUGE quirks.

    P.S.: On this last episode, when Wheaton started his sob-story about his "meemaw", I turned to my wife and said, "watch this – he's faking". And, sure enough, the plot twist turned out exactly as I thought, which made Sheldon's evolving reaction even more hilarious.

    I don't watch much TV anymore but have to admit that I LOVE Big Bang Theory and look forward to it all day long. So many times my husband and I laugh out loud at that show. I honestly couldn't pick a favorite episode, I enjoy them all. The characters couldn't be more perfect or a better blend of personalities. Sheldon gets the recognition but it takes them all to make it happen.

    Even though I don't get all the star trek references, The Big Bang Theory is a testiment to good TV. It's funny and smart. Easily the funniest show on TV right now. I hope that it continues to be.

    Wheaton is great. After a few dry years where Hollywood seemed to turn it's back on him it is great seeing him pop up all over the place.

    He's a decent human being, loves his wife and step sons, is a huge nerd, and genuinely loves his fans.

    Wil is ACES in my book.

    I'm 24 and I enjoy the show. I tend to think fo CBS as a network for old people, but Big Bang is pretty cute. As a graduate student, comic book and video game nerd, myself, I find it difficult to understand how it's gotten so much success from non-nerds due to the fact that a lot of the jokes tend to be esoteric to comic book nerds and science geeks. Do you people just laugh because you know you're supposed to, without even really fully understanding all of the esoteric references to physics and star trek?

    I loved the episode. Getting to watch Sheldon become "unglued" was hysterical and I love Stuart's (Kevin Sussman) sarcastic reaction to the whole thing "That was fun."

    Even funnier to me, though, was watching Wolowitz finally bond with his date over their controlling Mothers. Hysterical. I hope there is an episode showing them attempting to unravel the other's mother.

    And please, more Wil Wheaton. I think Sheldon's definitely in for another attempt of vengeance on the man!

    A fantastic episode in a show that has it all – intelligent writing, complete character development, and fantastic acting. Did anyone else notice – in a show of just how strong the performances are – that the final joke in the Wolowitz/new girl story was actually Leonard's non-verbal reaction to Penny's line, "Am I a matchmaker, or what?"...the delivery of the line was merely the set up, the laugh was all in Johnny Galeicki's reaction.

    I don't watch much network television but I've been a big time fan of Two and a Half Men since it came on in 2003 and I've always been a fan of the NBC Monday night comedies. I fell in love with Big Bang Theory since day one. This show is so funny, clever and smart; these are the funniest nerds in television history. I love this show. Last night's episode was funny as hell; I wish it was on ON Demand in my cable area becuase I'd love to see the episode again. My only worry about the show is that that show is so witty, clever and original that I wonder if the series will get boring and stale and run out of funny storylines like Third Rock from the Sun did several years ago.

    My wife and I love this show. So intelligently written. Kudos to Chuck Lorre (Two and a Half Men is the only other comdey worth watching on TV). Love the Sheldon/Wheaton interaction. He should definitately make a return appearance – and keep one-upping Sheldon. Also loved last season when they met Summer Glau. all the actors in the show are fantastic and really nail their characters.

    But I have to say – I think, even funnier than the Sheldon/Wheaton stuff last night was the Wolowitz scenes with the new girl.

    It was a great episode. The whole show is wonderful, not mind numbing like a lot of comedy shows. I always root for the under dog, so I love it that Leonard and Penny are together. Will Wheaton has absolutely turned into a great looking guy.

    Big Bang is on a hot streak right now. I thought the Penny/Leonard hookup would spell disaster, but what makes the show work is so far afield of that, it hasn't even mattered. Between the Wheaton revenge and last week's "Eye of the Tiger" montage, and 'tat-sleeves' before that, I've been laughing hysterically so far this season.

    My husband and I love Big Bang Theory. We do hope they will bring Wheaton back in a future episode, and thought it would be a great idea to do so occasionally, as some sort of a Sheldon nemesis.

    Great episode!! When will asked if he just said 'revenge is a dish best served cold' in Klingon was so funny!! The fact that he KNEW Klingon was the best part of that big when he thought Sheldon was the weird.

    Best comedy on tv!!

    This show gets better every episode. I've pretty much given up on everything but sports on tv but this is quickly becoming a have to watch show.

    I have to agree whole heartedly- I laughed until lthere were tears a couple times- Klingon talk about Revenge served best cold.... I hotted! and the new girlfriend possibility for Wolowitz..they are made for each other, or one wants to hope for him that they are!
    Great Writing- not 30 minutes wasted of my life- anything that can make you laugh out loud is well worth the time!

    I LOVE BIG BANG!!! Funniest Show on TV! Last night's Sheldon beat the gift-gving Sheldon when Penny gave him a napkin touched by Leonard Nemoy.
    Sadly, I recognized the Klingon language immediately and almost choked with laughter!
    Kudos to the writers of the show and ESPECIALLY the actors who truly bring their characters to our hearts.

    Yeah Big Bang! .... oh, sorry. I just love that show.

    Yeah, it was a great episode. All the way around. I could not stand Will Wheaton in Star Trek, not one episode. But, he was really good in this show and I do hope they bring him back.

    I've been watching this show since the first episode and recruiting my friends and family! Whom ever chose the cast deserves an emmy. By all means more Will Wheaton please and any other Star Trek favorites Sheldon can battle!

    I think that Big Bang Theory is the funniest thing on television.
    Jim Parson was robbed of the Emmy for his role.

    Seriously the best show on TV. It is a classic. It is my weekly laugh out loud show :). Not only the Star Trek references but Wolowitz and the 'new girl' have MOMs in common – how rich is THAT? lol

    This is the best show on TV right now and last nights episode proves why. The khan references were great and in the context of the show and Sheldon is turning into one of those legendary TV characters.

    Need WHEATOOOOON!!! to be Sheldon's foil more often!!

    I love the show and "evil" Wil Wheaton sort of playing himself was genius. I think they could bring him back for the odd interaction with Sheldon to hilarious results.

    I do hope they end, nicely, the sexual relationship between Penny and Leonard soon though. Why do sitcoms always try to have the most unlikely relationships on Earth take place? These two work together much better as friends IMHO.

    This has turned into a great no-brainer show for us closet geeks. The Wil Wheaton episode was classic, using Sheldon's arrogance and humanity against him. I'd love to see Wil do some more guest appearences on the show, as he's really built up a presence of his own in the geek world.

    LOVED IT!! Well done and YES Jim Parson most certainly deserved an Emmy nomination! I love this show anyway and I was humored by the usually self controlled Sheldon becoming completely unglued at the very thought of Will Wheaton and the memory of betrayal and by Will Wheaton's MeMaw deception. It defintely was one of the funniest and well thought out episodes and I truly hope this show makes it many more seasons.

    I'm a daily reader of Wil Wheaton's blog. His book, "Just A Geek," reminded me of my childhood and, even now, my life of boardgames, card games, D&D and general geekdom.

    His portrayal of his "devious" self was wonderful. The set-up in the comic book store (paraphrasing: "he lives close by and comes in often") is so very true to his real life, the writers of this episode had to have written it specifically with Wil in mind.

    Wil's done some great guest spots of the last few years ("CSI", "Criminal Minds", "Leverage", as well as the web series "The Guild"), I think it's time he comes back to acting full time.

    Now, about that stage reading of "Stand By Me"...

    Last night's Big Bang was one of the funniest shows I have ever seen. The show is consistently hilarious. I DO hope they bring Wheaton back. There is so many directions they can go with him. What about bringing any other star trek members or star wars people on? The hilarity that would ensue when seeing all of them fall all over themselves would be too funny not to watch without "Depends" on.

    Big Bang Theory brings back intelligent, quality and riotously funny comedy back to reality-ridden TV airways.

    Thank you CBS!!
