Show was great, however, Sheldon "new look" (longer hair & more muscular) takes away from the character. Cut the hair and wear larger pants and shirts or quite working on building the bod!

Great job, writers. But, could be better. I don't want the show to go downhill, but the intelligence factor to be permanent. Thanks for stephen hawking too. Love him.

It's great that Hawking can make a guest appearance. I would love to see a BBT episode where he and Stan Lee discuss the physics of the Marvel universe!
