‘The Big Bang Theory’ season 8 spoilers: First look at 2015 premiere!

Big Bang -The Big Bang Theory” ended the fall half of its season last week, and with an episode that revolved around everything from clean rooms to Sheldon actually making Amy happy with a Christmas gift … even if it was on accident.

So what lies ahead in 2015? Well, we have some insight now courtesy of the January 8 installment, which carries with it the title of “The Space Probe Disintegration.” This is one that, on the surface, seems to be about something great in the men trying to make the women happy. However, in doing so Sheldon starts to become unhappy, and then hilarity almost inevitably ensues. Take a look at the short synopsis released by CBS this morning:

“When the guys finally agree to do something the girls like, it leads to a confrontation between Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon (Jim Parsons).”

Nothing in this synopsis sounds altogether original, but to us, the story is not so much about that as it is the physical comedy of it all, and how Sheldon has a meltdown. We’ve seen the man have so many of these over the years that today, the real challenge exists in trying to separate one from all of the others.

There are some other other stories that we’d like to see in the second half of this season, including more of Raj and Emily, Leonard and Penny actually starting the wedding planning (even if they don’t marry this season), and at least one character having a major career leap forward.
