‘The Big Bang Theory’ season 6 spoilers: Take a look at Howard’s new obsession

When you spend quite a bit of time in space, it’s pretty inevitable that you are going to be facing some rather horrible consequences that almost cancel out how cool it is that you are in space … including gravity.

With that in mind, Thursday night’s new episode of “The Big Bang Theory” is going to show us just a little bit of this very thing as Howard is going to learn to miss some of the simple things. Our favorite moment of the promo below? When he asks Bernadette to drop a pencil, though this is not even remotely what you are thanking that it would be.

Elsewhere in this episode, we are finally going to see what happens when Sheldon decides to hire a new assistant to help with this research, and it quickly starts to cause all sorts of tension within the lives of our characters. At first, Amy is going to get awfully jealous of the fact that Sheldon is starting to spend a great deal of time with another woman; however, this will quickly change to Penny feeling this way when she starts to realize how much time this woman is spending with Leonard around the workplace.

Are any relationships really going to be severed thanks to this new woman? We would really be shocked, if for no other reason than that there is still so much to learn about this character. We don’t know whether or not she is actually flirting with anyone or just being friendly, just as we do not know yet whether or not she is even single.

What do you think about this episode, and do you think that it has the potential for a great hour of entertainment?
