Tonight, The Big Bang Theory season 11 episode 15 aired a new episode all about characters striving to make their dreams come true — with some significant roadblocks along the way.
For Sheldon, he wanted to do everything that he could to be on the new Professor Proton show. We know that it was a longtime dream of his; yet, the big problem that he had was that Wil Wheaton was the host. First, he had to find a way to apologize for some of his recent actions. Following that, he then had to convince Wil to bring him on board … which he was not all that interested in doing. Instead, he wanted Amy and she was hesitant to take on the gig.
What was her concern? Understandably, she didn’t want Sheldon to freak out if she took the appearance, knowing that this gig could make him jealous. What we liked about this story was that even though Sheldon remained Sheldon, he also didn’t react to Wil wanted Amy on the show in the way that you would’ve thought. He encouraged her to do it and ignored some of his personal misgivings.
As a result of all of this, eventually Amy decided to go through with the gig.
Leonard as Logan
The other major storyline this week brought us some of Leonard’s fiction-writing aspirations. He was well into the process of writing his mystery book, but a problem quickly emerged in that he was inspired to write on of the meaner characters in the book after Penny. He tried to deny it to her and claim it was Bernadette instead, but Bernie soon after that ended up blowing up her spot. Penny was upset — at least to a certain extent — but then Leonard made another realization that is even more shocking.
What was that? As it turns out, this character may have been actually inspired by his mother … which was especially creepy, all things considered. Having Christine Baranski return for a few small scenes, though, was pretty genius, especially in seeing her reenact the same scenes that Kaley Cuoco and Melissa Rauch did as the book character.
The Big Bang Theory season 11 episode 15 was an episode that provided entertainment in a way that we’re not used to it. As a result of that, we were happy with it in the end. We just hope that some of these storylines are ones that stick around for the remainder of the season — it’d be great if Leonard actually became a successful author, mostly because it would be nice after all of this time to see some of these characters have some substantial victories.
