The Big Bang Theory: The Zarnecki Incursion

 Whenever you venture into geek territory, you have to keep on your toes. Mess up the details and the fanboy nation will come for you in the night. The Big Bang Theory skates dangerously close to that equation when Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) WoW account is hacked and all his digital goodies stolen. A few key details get flubbed for the sake of laughs, and while most of the scenario feels plausible enough, canny WoW fans will spot the discrepancies. Thankfully, that hardly matters, as the boy boys embark upon a very funny scheme for revenge with a little help from Penny (Kalye Cuoco). Sheldon’s drama queen antics never spill over into the obnoxious and the show even finds a few choice moments for various gal pals to strut their stuff. Not bad for a gang of noobs...

 A well played out episode.  The girls have really grown on me.  I'm enjoying them alot more now.  But Sheldon was hilarious in this one.

 "Because the FBI hung up on me!"

As a WoW player, I noticed some of the discrepencies.  But I don't expect them to be perfect in every way and chose to overlook them for a half hour of good laughs.
