    The Big Bang Theory "The Proton Resurgence" Review: Fallen Idols

    Bob Newhart was a welcome addition to an episode that otherwise featured Dumb Blonde Penny being dumber than we've seen in awhile and a rather dull story about Bernadette and Howard babysitting—and then losing—Raj's dog.

  • Episode Summary

    EDIT
    When Sheldon and Leonard learn their favorite TV scientist is available to hire, they seek to do so. Howard and Bernadette are tasked with watching Raj's dog.

      The best episode of this season. Hilariously funny. Eyes watering moments between Sheldon and the got long in the tooth TV host Prof Proton.

      Why this isn't rated higher, I'll never know. I laughed so hard. Bob Newhart is hilarious in this. Love it.

      I've always been a big fan of Bob Newhart as I watched his shows and loved them back when and my wife and I checked out DVDs and rewatched some of them recently. I didn't know he was in this episode until we watched it last night. He did a great job as an old guy portraying Professor Proton although at times I wondered a little if his age wasn't having some effects on his lines. However in this story line it actually fit perfectly. Sheldon was like that gleeful, amazed little kid I sometimes would like to be again, unaware of this messed up world and just amazed by a childhood fantasy. And Penny's zaniness was perfect, duh, can the potato help with your pacemaker? LOL The parallel story line with Raj, Bernadette, and Howard was great as I know what it would be like to lose a friends or relatives dog. Bernadette slamming the computer lid shut really ended that story line perfectly. A very good episode, not as hiliarous overall as some but quite good and it did have Bob Newhart as well!moreless

      My family and friends record every episode. when we all get home from work, Big Bang makes a really long day laughable! I save them for later viewing as well! Sheldon reminds me so much of my boyfriend, genious with no common sense, Leonard and penny and raj and Howard.... an absolute pefect blend. I often wonder how the writers come up with their lines! Hilarious! Oh, and it wouldnt be complete without Bare Naked Ladies; their theme song is my mantra LOLmoreless

      Im a surgeon and I thought I was going to die of laugh when Seldon said that he could have been a hobbo or a funny episode, but I dont like that they make Penny look soooooooooo dumb
