If you’re a fan of both Star Wars and The Big Bang Theory, you might have noticed that the characters in the show often make references to the movies from the popular franchise. But which Star Wars movie did they actually watch on the show? Let’s find out.
The episode in question is from Season 2, titled “The Classified Materials Turbulence.” In this episode, Sheldon and Penny end up on a train journey together after missing their respective flights. To pass the time, Sheldon suggests that they watch a movie on his laptop.
The movie that Sheldon chooses to watch is Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. This is the first movie that was released in the Star Wars franchise back in 1977 and is often considered one of the best movies in the series. It’s also interesting to note that Sheldon mentions he has never seen it before, despite being a huge fan of the franchise.
As Sheldon and Penny watch the movie, we see their reactions to some of the iconic scenes from A New Hope. They are both seen enjoying themselves and even cheering during certain moments. This highlights how even non-fans can appreciate and enjoy the classic film.
In typical Big Bang Theory fashion, there are also a few references to other pop culture franchises during this scene. When Darth Vader makes his entrance, Sheldon says “Oh my God, it’s Darth Vader! He can’t be bargained with!
He can’t be reasoned with! He doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear!” This is a reference to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character from The Terminator.
So there you have it – in The Big Bang Theory Season 2 Episode “The Classified Materials Turbulence,” Sheldon and Penny watch Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope on Sheldon’s laptop. It’s always fun to see our favorite characters enjoying the same things we do, and this scene is a great example of that.
