At some point on “The Big Bang Theory” before it ends, we want to see Dr. Sheldon Cooper recognized for some sort of significant scientific achievement, but before we come to that, isn’t there still a certain amount of entertainment that can be mined from watching him screw up a few times?
In addition to the shorter promo that we posted on Friday for the next upcoming new episode, we now have a longer look at “The Romance Resonance,” something that will really feature the end result of what happens when Sheldon’s head get so large that he doesn’t quite recognize when even he has made a mistake. This happened with one of the his scientific “discoveries” (a new element), and now he has to figure out how to admit to it rather than enjoying the near-constant applause from his peers.
There is not too much footage in this longer promo that reveals a lot about the storyline, but there is the same sort of familiar “roommate humor” that we’ve come to expect over the years. Case in point: Leonard telling Sheldon that the one way to get everyone to stop applauding him is for them to suddenly be forced into some sort of living arrangement with him. That will most likely do the trick.
The reason that we can’t see Sheldon succeed just yet is the same reason why Penny has never landed the huge acting gig save for maybe the rare commercial: What continues to make “The Big Bang Theory” work is that most of the characters are still striving for something. Out of the group right now, Penny, Amy, Bernadette, Raj, and Sheldon all still have something major to accomplish. At least Howard got to go into space, and Leonard had his opportunity to live it up while aboard a ship with Stephen Hawking over the course of the summer.
