The Big Bang Theory Comic-Con Panel: Romances, Tutors and a Trip Into Space

at . Comments

Forget new Season 6 scoop or romantic tidbits for a moment, we must start with this:

The Big Bang Theory raffled off an actual ride into outer space at today's Comic-Con panel, giving out a trip aboard the Link Suborbital Space Plane to a female attendee (Mercedes Becerra of Paso Robles, CA).

That, Jim Parsons chiming in via satellite and the following revelations all combined to make for one entertaining Q&A session…

Yes, Chuck Lorre promised, there is a "romance planned for Raj." The series creator also joked about a crossover between TBBT and Two and a Half Men, considering the latter is now also on Thursday nights:

"It would be great to have one of the gang tutor Jake, because he’s such a knucklehead.”

Will we ever learn Penny's last name? Fans shouldn't count on it. "I think she's just like Cher, she just goes by one name," Kaley Cuoco.

From afar, Parsons said he enjoys the "exploration of the whole Amy and Sheldon relationship, it's very fun to see where that's going... as slowly as that may be."

Simon Helberg on his tight pants: "I help with the stuffing. It's a lot of sucking in and hanging."

Johnny Galecki was unable to attend, but he has a great excuse: his flight from Iraq, where he was on a USO tour, was delayed.

I hope the big bang Theory acknowledges all the stuff that's happened science wise lately in the new season.


Penny's dad, Wyatt, doesn't have a last name either. (Maybe that's a hint that it's Earp.) Love Shamy.


Love this show. Sheldon rocks :)


Wow, never realized that Penny's last name was never mentioned before.. :D


Great acting, greats story(s), funny. I love the Big Bang Theory

TBBT Quotes

Penny: Here's a question-- as an alien pretending to be human, are you planning to engage in any post-prom mating rituals with Amy?
Sheldon: There are post-prom mating rituals?
Penny: Not always. Unless your date drives a van with an air mattress, then always.
Sheldon: Well, if it's part of the prom experience, then I'm open to it.
Penny: You're kidding.
Sheldon: I may be an alien, but I have urges.If Amy wants to copulate by firing her eggs into space, well, then, I will happily catch them with the reproductive sac on my upper flermin. I'm not the best at reading facial cues, but I can see that you're a little turned on.

The show must go on, and thankfully all the things my girlfriend used to do can be taken care of with my right hand.
