Leaning heavily on the sci-fi button could be a lazy fall-back for this enduring geek-com, but the results are nearly always a joy. This week the boys go online – nerve ends jangling – to try to secure tickets for Comic-Con. Their abject failure leads to extreme measures. Sheldon’s tentative wooing of James Earl Jones results in this unlikely line bellowed triumphantly from a fairground: “Hey, Los Angeles, I’m on a ferris wheel with Darth Vader. And he’s nicer than you think.”
A neat Iron Man 2 gag, the girls’ refined outing and a further Star Wars cameo round out a satisfying story.
When the guys are unable to get tickets for the Comic-Con, Leonard, Howard and Raj decide to buy fake passes from a stranger - but they then worry about getting caught with them. Sheldon decides to hold his own comic-book convention and searches for a suitable star guest for the event. Meanwhile, the girls take tea at a hotel but discover that maturity is over-rated. Comedy, guest starring James Earl Jones and Carrie Fisher.
