‘The Big Bang Theory’ season 7, episode 6 review: Sheldon’s element; Howard’s Bernadette song

Here it is -Periodic table, brace yourselves: You could have an element on it very soon known as Sheldonium. The big twist? It was not found based on some sort of scientific genius. Instead, it was found based on a very human blunder. Sheldon made a great revelation on “The Big Bang Theory” Thursday night, but with it, he also ended up feeling incredibly insecure about his accomplishments.

The hilarity of this episode mostly came in that for the first time since the show began, Dr. Cooper actually had done something so substantial that his name will get into science books around the world. The problem here is that he did not actually do anything to earn the honor. He just happened to be knowledgeable enough to solve many equations to get from point A to point B.

In the end, the main point of this story seemed to be that Amy is special to him, at least in that she was the only person who seemed to understand the sort of misery that he was feeling over this.

To us, what made this rise to the level of being the best “Big Bang Theory” of the season was simply seeing the cute little anniversary song that Howard came up with for Bernadette, mostly because it really was so realistic to the show and to his character. We could see a character like him doing this in real life, and the way in which this evolved into Penny trying to find a way to be romantic with Leonard was perfect. In the end, she proved that she was without even trying, as she had a box full of memories of their relationship together.

The best “Big Bang Theory” episodes are the ones that treat the characters as more than just carbon-copy nerds, and show that there is so much more to them. This episode did that, and we’ll be remembering it for quite a while. Grade: A.
