The Big Bang Theory - The Earworm Reverberation

In an episode that will culminate in the return of Shamy, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) begins going crazy after getting a song stuck in his head his eidetic memory is incapable of recognizing. Driving both Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) crazy as well, Sheldon will eventually not only remember the name of the song but realize its meaning to him. There's plenty of fun frantic Sheldon moments throughout before Sheldon admits his feelings for Amy first to himself (and Leonard and Penny) and later to his girlfriend.

"The Earworm Reverberation" also delivers the return of Stephen Merchant as the Sheldon-worshiping Dave who takes Sheldon barging in on his date with Amy remarkably well. The character is amusing but I've expect the show's gotten all it's going to get out of Dave at this point. The other storyline involving Howard (Simon Helberg) and Raj (Kunal Nayyar) and their growing obsession with a fan of Footprints on the Moon has a fun set-up but no real payoff as it eventually fizzles out.
