Big Bang Theory + Wil Wheaton + Penny Arcade = Geek Win

Next week’s episode of The Big Bang Theory, titled “The Creepy Candy Coating Corollary,” guest stars Wil Wheaton. He was tweeting and blogging about it while shooting, which was pretty amusing/informative, and the episode is already up in the queue! CBS just posted the promo on YouTube:

The first thing I noticed upon watching this was that Wil is wearing a t-shirt featuring a certain fruit-violating robot from the guys at Penny Arcade. If the combination of comic book shop and Star Trek wasn’t geeky enough, I’m pretty sure this brings it to a whole new level.

Wil Wheaton is one of those geek icons who rises to the status because he’s, you know, an actual geek. Felicia Day is another great example. If I had to predict another, David Blue (Eli in the new Stargate: Universe) has a great Twitter feed – like a fanboy who can’t believe his good luck.  In any case, I’m glad to see all of these guys popping up in acting gigs all over the place. (And of course, anyone who hasn’t seen Wil in this season of The Guild should check it out immediately.)

The episode airs next Monday, October 19.
