The Big Bang Theory First Look: Sheldon in Jail

by at . Comments

As previously reported, Stan Lee will guest star on the March 1 episode of The Big Bang Theory.

This is great news for Sheldon, except for one problem: the character ends up in jail on that episode, following a minor traffic infraction and Sheldon's “lack of delicacy with the English language," as Jim Parsons explains to Entertainment Weekly.

“He gets pushed to his limits and gets cross with the judge,” Parsons told the magazine. “The phrase ‘catching more flies with sugar than with vinegar’ makes no sense to him. The truth is really all that matters.”

Sheldon in Jail

Of course, Sheldon soon “realizes he doesn’t [have] a private bathroom" in the cell, producer Chuck Lorre adds. Therefore, he's happy to apologize and get the heck out of there.

Will he actually get to meet Lee? Lorre says yes, but: “It doesn’t go well."

No shock there. But likely many, many laughs.
