The Big Bang Theory Review: Call of the Wild Sheldon

at . Comments

Move over Matthew McConaughey, there's a new late-night bongo player in town and his name is Sheldon Cooper!

While "The Werewolf Transformation" wasn't the most hysterically funny episode of the season, it did explore some fun areas of our favorite geeks.

I knew when Sheldon attempted to blow one day’s extra hair growth out of his eyes, and more so when he attempted to get a comatose barber to cut his hair, that he was going to have the same reaction to missing his haircut schedule that he has when any of his normal routines are messed up: going absolutely bat-crap crazy

What's Up with That Hair?

Good to know I wasn't wrong either. But never let it be said that it’s not fun watching Sheldon slip into his own personal insanity. From the butt-dwelling purple leprechaun comment from Penny to Howard's confession about eating a butterfly, this week's outing featured some very memorable Big Bang Theory quotes

Speaking of Howard, is anyone else over the running story of him going into space? This third string story linehas been lingering around so long I’m not even sure how long ago it got started. Could we go ahead and shoot Howard in to space and be done with it? 

If I were a betting man (which I am), I would wager that Howard going into space will be part of this year’s season finale. The real question is this: Will Howard suddenly find a way to bring Sheldon, Raj and Leonard along on his trip to space like Sheldon did on his trip to the North Pole at the end of Season 2? 

I guess we will just have to wait and see. So, anyone up for a game of Rock, Paper, Scissor, Lizard, Spock in the meantime? I'm certainly not going to challenge Penny to a game of chess. And, while it was fun to see how many past episode she referenced while convincing Sheldon to come home, I'm letting her cut my hair anytime soon. Sorry, Penny, my barber is just fine!

The Big Bang Theory Season 5 Episode 18 Quotes

Penny: I use to cut my brother's hair. I could do it for you
Sheldon: I know you mean well, offering the skills of the hill folk, but here in town we don't churn our own butter, we don't make dresses from gunny sacks, and sure-as-shootin don't get our hair cut by bottle blon..
Leonard: Sheldon be nice!

To paraphrase T.S. Elliot, this is how the world ends, not with a bang but with a nephew.
