For The Big Bang Theory's 200th episode, "The Celebration Experimentation," Sheldon gets a special surprise birthday. It becomes a bit too much for him to handle at first, but once Penny gives him a pep talk, he's able to enjoy himself in a celebration that includes Bat Man himself.

Favorite New Romance
Sheldon and Leonard aren't thrilled, but Penny really loves the idea of a romance between Leonard's dad and Sheldon's mom. I mean, come on, how could we not be excited about that?
Most Underutilized Character
For some reason, Leonard's story arcs haven't felt very significant lately, other than his marriage with Penny. If there's anything we'd like to see next season, it's something of more substance for Leonard.
