I just happened to turn over to four as there wasn't much else happening while I ate my lunch - guess what I found it hilarious - I don't think I'm supposed to - I was born in 1931, but it was so relevant of today - bang up to date, and reminded me of my youth - I'd enjoy being young again if it could be like that - thanks for a magical half hour.

Great episode. Loved Professor Proton; how many "popular scientists" realise the effect they have on future generations? In Australia, we had Julius Sumner Miller with "why is it so?".

A great show, Bob Nehart and Jim Parsons together were great.

NONSENSE - Penny & Sheldon would be a disaster. They're best as sister & brother.

Please, please , Lose Amy ! She is so not right for Sheldon & is diminishing his wonderful character. Penny & Sheldon are so destined to be together ! The scenes between them are magic !
