The Big Bang Theory - The Parking Spot Escalation

   The Big Bang Theory is by far one of the best shows on television. It is smart, witty, and has a killer cast! I believe Jim Parsons is just one of those acting geniuses. I know a lot of film actors have also been on the Broadway stage, whether for a musical or play but, to me, it's a bit more impressive when a TV actor does it and is successful. I'm not sure why but it just is. Anyways, with the other shows I've been introducing I've done a quick summary but it is impossible to sum up Big Bang quickly. So, if you haven't seen the show, find someone who does and go watch it with them! I only say watch it with someone who does because you might need them to explain a few things, for example, Sheldon Cooper.

   Last night's episode was a great battle between Howard and Sheldon. Their great battle even caused a battle between Amy and Bernadette! That's how great it was! So you know how Sheldon hates when people are in his spot? Well, Howard got to see just how crazy Sheldon can be when someone is in his spot and won't leave. The University decided to give Howard his own parking spot since he is now a big deal (apparently going into outer space means you're cool or something) and they end up assigning him the parking space that has already been assigned to Sheldon. Now, you say, doesn't Sheldon not have a car or even know how to drive? You are correct! Apparently this university doesn't need you to meet those requirements in order to be assigned a parking spot, you just have to be super smart. So, since Howard refuses to give Sheldon his spot back because, let's face it, that's stupid, Sheldon declares war on him. Howard's argument was that Sheldon wasn't using his parking spot so, Sheldon takes Howard's Iron Man helmet because, to use his own argument against him, Howard wasn't using it. I think you can already tell this is going to get out of hand. In retaliation, Leonard, Raj, and Sheldon come home to see Howard, sitting on their couch, in Sheldon's spot, naked. Also, Sheldon's laptop was sitting on his crotch to cover it up. Personally, I thought Sheldon would explode right then and there but no, he decides to have Amy park her car in Howard's spot; they also changed the name on the spot to say 'S. Cooper'. Because Bernadette and Amy got caught up in the fight between their beau's, Bernadette had Amy's car towed, and scratched it a little bit. So Sheldon just moves his office outside to the parking spot so that he would be using it. Well, when a man with a car goes up against a man in a rolling chair, it doesn't end well for the man in the chair. Sheldon's last resort was to get in Howard's car right then and sit in the driver's seat, naked. For those of you wondering, yes, he looked like a crazy man-child. Raj talks Howard into being the bigger man and Howard goes and apologizes to Sheldon and lets him have his spot back. Not to be defeated, Sheldon does not accept that and decides he himself is the bigger man and he will let Howard use his parking spot until he learns how to drive. Which, after his last few attempts, I'm hoping will be never.
The Big Bang Theory airs Thursday nights at 8pm on CBS
