The Big Bang Theory has aired close to ten seasons, but there are no indications that the popularity of the show is about to go down any time soon. After more than 200 episodes, the comedy has had hundreds of “bazingas” and Penny’s door has also received thousands of knocks followed by endless arguments focusing on the comic heroes. As you wait for the show to resume with the next episodes, here are some of the episodes which we think are really the very best from the show:
Season 1 Episode 6: The Middle Earth Paradigm
One of the highlights of this episode is when Leonard gets a kiss from Penny, to which he pleasantly replies by saying “That’s how we roll in Shire.” You will also remember the Doppler effects created by Sheldon when he made his way to a fancy dressing party. The episode is a perfect illustration of the struggles that the main four characters in the Big Bang Theory were enduring during the earlier seasons. We also see Penny throw a dress party which leads to everyone showing their affection for dressing up with all manner of reactions.
Season 2 Episode 3: The Barbarian Sublimation
This is another great episode fans enjoyed watching in this show. One of the greatest highlights is when Penny comes to the realization that she will need assistance to discover that she was indeed chatting with Howard online. She is at her lowest, in terms of both love and profession, she finds love in World of War Craft style game by the name of Age of Conan. This makes her bother Conan with how she can improve and become better at the game. This was the episodes when the fans were treated to the perfection in comedy pairing between Penny and Sheldon, which was later to be dubbed as “Shenny”.
Season 2 Episode 7: The Panty Pinata Polarization
In this episode, Penny is banned by Sheldon from the apart following his receipt of the dreaded three strikes for various bouts of bad behavior. The pair then starts quarreling every time about Wi-Fi and laundry codes and things get worse until it reaches a point where Penny has to betray Sheldon by telling him on his mother.
Meanwhile, Raj, Howard and Leonardo becomes obsessed with America’s Next Top Model, with Raj and Howard pretending that they can be handymen which can then make them infiltrate the mansion.
Season 3 Episode 8: The Adhesive Duck Deficiency
This is the episode when Leonardo, Raj and Howard got stoned in the desert. Penny and Sheldon’s friendship is also seen growing as Sheldon is compelled to break the laws they had created when he rushes Penny to the hospital following an injury she got in the bathroom. The best moment in this episode is when Raj, Leonardo, and Howard get high accidentally as they wait while waiting for a meteor shower in the dessert after they were given special cookies by some middle aged hippies. This is one where you will see the funniest sides of Leonardo in the entire show.
Season 3 Episode 16: The Excelsior Acquisition
One of the greatest highlights of this episode is when Sheldon get a restraining order from Stan Lee when he invited himself to Stan Lee’s house. In some way, Stuart managed to have Stan Lee make a sign at his comic book store, an action that made the entire gang very happy. However, Sheldon had to stay out of sight simply because he had a restraining order. The other highlight of this episode is when Sheldon scripted Penny’s statement in the court room. This was because she was considered too much of a loose cannon, but this later earned him a jail sentence for contempt.
Season 4 Episode 2: The Cruciferous Vegetable Amplification
In this episode, we see a robotic Sheldon having a talk with Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak. Sheldon comes to the realization that he doesn’t have much time to transfer his brain to the robot and decides to lengthen his life by building a mobile virtual presence device as well as changing his diet.
With the mobile virtual presence device, he is hooking an iPad to a roaming mobility program, together with speakers and webcam. It was so funny to see Sheldon’s face as he wheeled himself around and many people wondered why that can’t just be happening all the time.
Season 6 Episode 23: The Love Spell Potential
In this episode, the girls are getting all things set for Vegas while the boys are happy about their board game night. Later on, the girls are unable to leave Vegas after a TSA agent’s nose was broken by Amy and so they decide to join the boys in a night of Dungeons and Dragons. Surprisingly, they find themselves immersed into the game and this can be attributed to the masters impression of Al Pacino and Christopher Walken by Howard.
Amy and Sheldon also decide to take their relationship a little bit further when they simulated PG rated sex using their Dungeon characters, and this was a very huge step for them. Additionally, Raj gets laid with a lady named Lucy, who happens to be shyer than he is.
Season 8 Episode 18: The Leftover Thermolization
One of the best moments you will remember from this episode is when Howard realized that there is no difference in how Bernadette and her overbearing mother sounds. This is was a moving episode after the death of Carol Ann Susi. Carol was the character that played Howard’s mother. After the death of the mother, her fridge get broken then she comes to the realization that she will never taste food cooked by her again. This was truly a rare moment and it was an epic performance by Simon Helberg.
The entire gang comes together and decides to eat up all of Howard’s mother’s food all at ones, and this was seen as a befitting way to bid farewell to the actress and character that played her role. Though the times were tough for the cast and the crew, the episode still managed to bring in some laughs.
