  • Title: The Big Bang Theory – The Weekend Vortex
  • link


Sheldon (Jim Parsons) is ill-prepared to deal with the consequences when he chooses to spend a old school 48-hour Star Wars video game weekend with Leonard (Johnny Galecki), Raj (Kunal Nayyar), and Howard (Simon Helberg), rather than go with Amy (Mayim Bialik) to her aunt’s 93rd birthday party.

After being disappointed by not being able to introduce her first boyfriend to her family Amy turns to Penny (Kaley Cuoco) for comfort as Raj is disappointed to learn Howard has invited Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) to take part in their all-boys weekend. As you’d expect, more than one scene will be made before the end of the first night.

Although show primarily focuses on Sheldon’s dilemma and the fallout from his choice, the episode’s best moment features Leonard and Penny discussing the boundaries of the their relationship which ends in a Speedy Gonzalez reference. Since getting the pair back together the show has found a nice level for their relationship that, as this scene does so well, reminds us why they belong together.
