The Big Bang Theory celebrates its 200th episode this week! To mark the occasion, E4 are showing a special behind-the-scenes episode, called The Big Bang Theory: 200 Big Ones, before showing the landmark episode itself (on Thursday 28th April at 8.30pm on E4).

To join in the celebrations, we salute some of the geekiest, sci-fi-iest, superhero-iest moments from the show. It wasn’t easy narrowing it down, we can tell you…

Talk to the hand

Talk to the hand

This is so what Spock should have done whenever McCoy got too lippy.

Sex vs Halo 3

Sex vs Halo 3

Two very good reasons why Halo 3 is better than sex, according to Dr Sheldon Cooper. 

Fun with flags

You don’t have to be a nerd to enjoy “fun with flags”. But it really, really helps. 

C-Men: First Class

C-Men: First Class

He may be a genius, but Sheldon really hasn’t thought through the name of his fledgling superhero troop very well…

Star Wars: The Geekery Awakens

The Big Bang Theory marked the arrival of The Force Awakens with its very own Star Wars-style opening crawl, and this one moment was better than the entire prequel trilogy. Not even joking.

Sadquaman

Sadquaman

The only way Leonard could possibly look dignified in a sucky Green Lantern costume is if Raj turned up in an even suckier Aquaman costume. Speaking of which…

Pondering the improbable

Pondering the improbable

The only sport allowable in geek circles is make-believe magic sport.

Sheldon hulks out

Aww, what’s the matter Sheldon, no love for Mark Ruffalo?

Lightsaber suicide

When your young padawan is poised to ask you advice on his very weird sex life, it’s time for lightsaber seppuku… 

Best. Costume. Ever.

Best costume ever

Sometimes, going to a Halloween party dressed as a Marvel superhero isn’t enough. Sometimes you have to go as a physical manifestation of the change in frequency of emitted waves.

The fastest knocker alive

The Big Bang Theory taught us that if Sheldon did indeed manage to appropriate the powers of The Flash, it would make his knock even more incredibly annoying…

Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock

Don’t be put off by its unfeasibly long name. Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock is really a very easy game to get a hang of. Honestly.

Jifs or gifs?

Jifs or gifs

Howard debating gifs is now itself a gif. Does that make this a meta-gif? Howard could probably tell you.

Supervillain Sheldon

Supervillain Sheldon

Just when we think maybe Sheldon isn’t an evil megalomaniac in the making, he goes and says something like this.

Beam them all up, please

The forward-thinking pessimist

We cannae take this level of geekery any longer, captain!
