Episode 11: The Santa Simulation

Summary

Leonard tries to get Sheldon into the Christmas mood by playing a game, but things do not go as planned when Sheldon reveals a childhood trauma. Raj goes out with the girls and reveals he had crushes on both Penny and Bernadette - but not Amy. Comedy, starring Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco.

Review

The geeks are back after a mid-season break: it’s Christmas! Freezing out their unlikely girlfriends, the lads settle in for a festive Dungeons & Dragons binge, which manages to include sleigh bells and all four verses of Good King Wenceslas. The rejected women get themselves together for a night out, being sure to parade for the audience in their party frocks first.

Straddling the two stories is the strangely written Raj, who talks in nonstop unintentional gay innuendo but reaffirms, when he joins the girls in the bar, that he’s a serial yearner for unattainable women. Yet he provides the one moment of seasonal warmth.
