Storyline

Despite doing whatever humanly and technically possible, the guys are unable to obtain tickets to this year's Comic-Con through legitimate means as the tickets are all sold out. Leonard, Howard and Raj decide that they will get tickets from a scalper, which Sheldon refuses to do as if they are caught, they will be banned from Comic-Con for life. Leonard, Howard and Raj have to decide if this little seed of information is enough to scare them off from doing what bad boys would do and proceed to buy the tickets through a scalper. Sheldon's plan is instead to start his own comic book convention. He goes on a search for at least one science fiction celebrity who would appear as a headliner at his convention, barring those who have restraining orders against him already. Sheldon's celebrity stalking doesn't turn out quite the way he expected.

Trivia

The sushi restaurant Sheldon meets James Earl Jones at is called "Kaiju Sushi". Kaiju means "strange creature" in Japanese. Kaiju is also the name of the monsters in the movie Pacific Rim (2013). See more »

Goofs

James Earl Jones' name does not appear on Sheldon's list. However the names of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carie Fisher are listed. It is unlikely that Sheldon would leave off James only to consider meeting him in person later. See more »

Bad Ending
30 January 2014 | by googlyrajzSee all my reviews

Okay, episode started with great laughter.. everyone trying to get the ticket to comic con.. pressing the refresh button infinite time.. it was getting funnier and funnier. But where i felt show lacked is the ending,. they didn't show what happened to Leonard,Howard and Raj did they come out of that trouble or not? did they even meet the man! what happened nothing is shown

i would say the show was a Sin(x) graph from interval 0 TO Pie.. that is first it got funnier and funnier and eventually it became boring

Asusual Penny,Bernedate And Amy Fowler had the girl talks .. really boring.. i am fed up of this. i still miss that Season 1 of the The big bang theory.. when there were only guys and penny <3. there was more of Science which is the concept of the show.. no i don't know where this show is heading on.. please put the show on the track.. include some science and please throw Amy out of the show ..she is really pathetic.
