Sheldon has decided to write children’s songs for the benefit of science (“and James Clark Maxwell was his name-o”). He wants to bring Beyonce in on the project, but unfortunately none of his friends know her. Raj has launched on a new project having to do with finding alien life. Leonard puts forth the idea that they’ve already found it, at their table. Raj enlists the help of his friends in finding a cross-galactic communication system. In the end, Leonard is chosen to join the team, because he’s the only one who didn’t insult Raj in the process. Opening credits.

Well, we’re back. This is a day late because I was out of town. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that my cousin, a French-Canadian actress just like Jessica Pare, appeared in this episode!

Raj and Howard argue over the pronunciation of GIF (for the record, I’m Team Jif). Sheldon is bitter because he’s not invited to a seminar with Richard Feynman, and hey, I’d be pissed at that too. His friends try to comfort him. They’re not very good at it. Opening credits.

Well, that was a long hiatus. Too long, one might say. So let’s kick off Easter Weekend with another installment of the Nerd Saga, which is how I choose to see it from now on. My best guess – Sheldon and Leonard look for jobs on the new Star Wars movie?

Though nothing can top “Pocket Full of Hawthornes”, I’m intrigued by another LGBT-based episode. But who does it concern? We shall find out.
