Sheldon can't sleep since he is totally preoccupied with solving a physics graphine problem. By association, Leonard and Penny can't sleep since Sheldon is continually bothering them. But Sheldon's sleep deprivation is making him more unusual than ever. He thinks he finally has the answer, not to the problem, but how to solve the problem. Much like Einstein did much of his best thinking when he worked in a patent office doing menial work, Sheldon believes he needs to get a menial job. A genius getting hired for a menial job is no easy feat, so Sheldon insinuates himself into a work situation of his own choice, much to the chagrin of one of his friends. Meanwhile, Leonard and Penny and Howard and Bernadette go on a double date to a disco roller rink. Raj is feeling left out, especially as it was his idea. On the other hand, Penny and Bernadette wish they hadn't gone.

Big Bang The Einstein Approximation (2007–2019)

This is the 14th episode in the 3rd season (episode 3.14), Albert Einstein (whose name is in the title) was born on March 14th (3.14).

Just before the scene near the end set in the roller disco, when the atoms are shown rotating, one of the orbiting electrons transforms into the glitter ball of the roller disco.

Title reference: Because Einstein came up with the Special Theory of Relativity while working a menial job at the patent office, Sheldon decides to replicate this process when he is stymied by a physics problem.

When Sheldon serves Howard his Bacon-Cheese burger he says it breaks 2 Jewish dietary restrictions at one time. The first, eating bacon, is widely known, but the second is more obscure: it's the prohibition against eating meat and milk (or any dairy product) together.

The roller skating scene at the end is followed by an outtake of the ball pit scene, showing Jim Parsons unsuccessfully trying to hold back laughter while saying "Bazinga!" The roller skating rink doesn't completely follow the remainder of the story so it was probably the original scene planned for after the commercial break and the extra ball pit footage was added for time or humorous content.

The Einstein Approximation is one of the best shows so far. It shows Sheldon at his classic best. What I liked about this show was that Bernadette controls Sheldon ,not Penny. It is hard for anyone to control Sheldon and Penny does it with sarcasm. This series showed that it could be done in a positive way by Bernadette. I think Bernadette has earned her way into this show every week. I would like to have the writers create a relationship between Sheldon and Bernadette that would be dynamite since the chemistry between them is excellent.

The show is beginning to flounder with too much repetition of certain things. For example Leonard's frustration with Sheldon has reached the point that it appears that he is so depressed that he just does not care anymore what happens to Sheldon or to his life in general. Penny and the other two main characters are becoming just too predictable that it is starting to become boring. We need a new character on every show to interact with Sheldon and the rest of them to make it fresh and new and unpredictable and I think that character is Bernadette. This show is great but lets not lose it.It needs new blood and now. More appearances by Leonard's mother would also help as she and Sheldon are dynamite together.
In this ep of last season's "The Big Bang Theory": Sheldon is stuck trying to solve a thesis to the consternation of Leonard and Penny whenever they are trying to sleep. He then remembers that Albert Einstein worked a menial job at a patent office in order to concentrate on his theories so Sheldon goes to an employment office to see what humiliating occupation he could get. The lady there ("The Simpsons" Yeardley Smith) gets irritated at Sheldon to the point of calling security so Sheldon just goes to Penny's The Cheese Factory to solve his problem. Notice I didn't say work since he didn't even get hired...Not as funny as previous eps (or maybe I'm just a little tired of the standard characterizations) but still entertaining enough. It's certainly a treat to see Ms. Smith and hearing her voice outside of her Lisa Simpson on the long-running animated series. Oh, and there's a subplot about a roller disco that results in a funny sight gags involving Howard and Raj at the end. So on that note, "The Einstein Approximation" is a funny enough episode of "The Big Bang Theory".
