Review

With hysteria surrounding the latest trailer for The Force Awakens, another Star Wars-themed story is very timely. So when Sheldon and Leonard are heading to a speaking engagement not a million light years from George Lucas’s ranch, their inner fanboys kick in. But excitement gives way to terror… and an embarrassing Taser incident. As well as the discovery that their level of fandom is relatively normal.

An equally spoddy subplot sees the fate of Howard’s Tardis being decided by an increasingly competitive game of table tennis. In fact, the cast play ping pong with each other during breaks in the show, so the episode probably didn’t seem like work at all.

Summary

When Leonard and Sheldon are invited to speak at UC Berkeley, they decide to take a detour and try to meet one of their idols - Star Wars director George Lucas. Meanwhile, Raj and Amy offer to settle a dispute with a game of table tennis. Comedy, starring Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco.
