Bedbath_2The Wall Street Journal has an entertaining feature today on one of Season Pass’ favorite shows: CBS’ "The Big Bang Theory."  If you missed my video Q&A with Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon, check it out here.

I’m really looking forward to Monday’s episode (the last orignal one of the calendar year) after reading this description in the WSJ piece:

"In ‘The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis,’ the episode taped the week of Thanksgiving, the duo’s neighbor Penny (Kaley Cuoco) proposes an exchange of Christmas gifts. Sheldon debunks the holiday he describes as ‘the ancient pagan festival of Saturnalia,’ and tries to shun her present, which will require from him ‘a gift of commensurate value and representing the same perceived level of friendship,’ he says. ‘It’s no wonder suicide rates skyrocket this time of year.’ Sheldon is then forced into alien territory — a bath and body store — to shop for gift baskets with Spock-like logic."
