This week in Pop Culture, we talk about a recent episode of The Big Bang Theory where we see Penny, Bernadette, and Amy dive further into geek culture, exploring the comic books the guys so love.
Meanwhile, The Bakersfield Expedition follows the guys as they head to a local Comicon in full Star Trek: The Next Generation Cosplay and have an unfortunate adventure of their own after stopping to pose for a few authentic show pictures.
Be warned: there are spoilers. If you haven’t seen the episode, go watch it at CBS.com!

Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
