Big Bang Theory In Super-Hero Drag

Welcome to SexyTown: Population 4

One of the few sitcoms on television, that is still funny, cranks up the laughmeter (which I made up) once again as the cast of the Big Bang Theory gets in touch with their feminine side the only way they know how: They dressed up like female super heroes.  Photo is from Entertainment Weekly

 Big Bang Theory executive producer Bill Prady wouldn’t reveal why the show’s geek squad ends up in “superheroine drag” in the April 12 episode... but it’s safe to say it involves the return of Sheldon’s arch-nemesis, Evil Wil Wheaton. “I will say this,” Prady adds, “this is not the worst thing that happens to someone in this episode.”

In the past, we've seen and heard many comic book references such as the infamous scene where everyone dressed up as the Flash, but these get-ups have taken the cake. From left to right we have Howard (Simon Helberg) as Batgirl, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) as Wonder Woman, Leonard (Johnny Galecki) as Supergirl, and Raj (Kunal Nayyar) as Catwoman from the film with the same name. 
 
I've watched the whole first season of this show, and I loved it. I have yet to watch the second season, but it really is one of the last funny sitcoms on television. For fans of comic books, science fiction, or anything else considered "nerdy," we all know a friend, or a friend of a friend, like one of these characters. And yes, at times it does make fun of some of our passions and can make a generalization of how many "nerds" are, but who cares? The show is funny, and we get some of the inside nerd jokes that most people wouldn't. So, we win!
 
This cross dressing episode of The Big Bang Theory, featuring Wil Wheaton, airs Monday, April 12th on CBS. Will you guys watch it?

@Meteorite:  they can't use marvel heroines in that moment because sheldon will disagree that they're dressing as dc heroines and they can't convine both universes hahaha

I think the fact that Raj is posing in the photo makes it just that much more epic. 
 
I can't wait for next week with "WHEATON!!!!!"

lol, what the...that's hilarious

Posted by Elixir95

Can't wait for this episode, this show is great!  Although, where are the Marvel heroines?

Fan Fail! 
 
No real fan would pick the Hallie Barry Catwoman costume. That was the idiotic mystical powered version. Catwoman doesn't need powers.
 
Comic Vine's Babs gets it right.

But seriously. I find the show funny, but for some reason I also find it very sad, and I feel guilty when I laugh at it.

I've only managed to catch a few episodes and now--I just don't know.  No, seriously, this looks funny as all get out, may actually watch it after all.  
Wonder how much tuck and tape was involved?  TMI.

That's SO funny!  We're laughing at it at work...  
 
I love how there's a little star over the end of Sheldon's man bit ;)
 
But, still no Marvel!  Why are Marvel references & merchandise such a rarity on BBT??

Man I don't think I've ever seen a more miserable set of individuals... except the Indian dude, he's pretty amped up to be dressed like Halle Berry.

Watched the show since it's debut because it's from 2 and a half Men creaters and that was the funniest show on free TV till Big Bang came around, plus Penny is just hot, but I was slightly upset when Sheldon quoted Green Lantern wrong and said In Darkest Night not blackest Night.  Then I felt like one of the dorks on the show til I realized Im not a genious.   Or am I?

I have sort of noticed that before, but I though I was just missing the Marvel things. That sucks a bit.
Posted by MHammer58

Is this a funny show or what?  Toss them dressed in female, excuse me heroine drag is just so hilarious.

But Stan Lee was in one of the episode ;) 
 
BBT is an amazing show, probably some of the finest TV you can get right now.
