The Love Car Displacement

Last night's episode of The Big Bang Theory found Leonard (Johnny Galecki), Sheldon (Jim Parsons), Penny (Kaley Cuoco), Raj (Kunal Nayyar), Howard (Simon Helberg), Bernadette (Melissa Rauch), and Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik) all on the road to a science symposium at an exclusive spa.

Although Sheldon's "leadership" causes problems for the group in the planning and driving to the hotel, the real fun begins that night when misunderstandings and bed jumping lead to a weary panel discussion the next morning as the group airs its dirty laundry in front of the audience.

Although I enjoy the show, I will admit from time to time it can coast on the strength of its cast with some forgettable plotlines. "The Love Car Displacement," however, does anything but. This is one of the show's best episodes this season, one where every character gets their moment, and the insanity slowly rises and then boils over with big laughs. The panel scene alone makes it must-see.
