The Big Bang Theory: The Toast Derivation
LeVar Burton looks like a million bucks.

Once again, The Big Bang Theory strikes that all-important balance between making Sheldon (Jim Parsons) endearingly prickly and merely obnoxious. This time, the joke’s on him, when he refuses to make a minor alteration in routine and find himself alone because of it. His perplexed misunderstanding about why he’s not the center of everyone’s universe – and the very funny ways he attempts to show his friends he doesn’t need them – give the episode a solid boost from which it never looks back. Aided by Amy Farrah Fowler’s (Mayim Bialik) factually accurate but emotional tone deaf comments and a brilliant cameo from TNG’s LeVar Burton, it makes this Bang one of the best episodes of the season.
Also, who thinks Chuck Lorre’s CENSORED card after the credits was about Charlie Sheen?
