“The Big Bang Theory” boldly goes “Into Darkness”

“The Big Bang Theory” guys once again boldly go … to a comic book convention (image via insidetv.ew.com)


Well not quite.

In fact they go to Bakersfield in this week’s episode (entitled appropriately enough “The Bakersfield Expedition”) for a comic book convention, all dressed up in their finest Star Trek: The Next Generation regalia, and have to get some help from the townsfolk in a diner when Leonard’s car is stolen.

As Sheldon would say, it looks like a hoot!

(For us I mean; for the guys not so much as their discomfort in the photo – above – makes plain.)

The boys’ absence gives the girls a chance to get to know the inside of the comic book store back home a little better which should prove very interesting indeed.

Now just in case you were wondering where the Into Darkness reference comes in – you were wondering that right? Right – here’s some crisp, lovely high res shots from the upcoming film, via hypable.com, which should amp up your excitement about seeing the film just a little bit more.

Or in my case, a lot.

I can feel my Spidey senses tingling all over.

Oops … wrong franchise.

Anyway, the movie is an action-packed rush by all accounts, which is borne out by the latest synopsis:

“Our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.”

And these amazing photos.

Engage. (Yeah, yeah, I know wrong Star Trek series. Gotcha!)
