Nothing but great episodes left as season seven plays out, so enjoy. This week, the guys look forward to Star Wars Day, ie all the films back-to-back. Sheldon is in his element while scheduling the event: “I have a window built in after Phantom Menace for complaining.”
But Leonard pops his balloon – and ours – with the news that Professor Proton has died. This, remember, was the TV presenter who inspired Sheldon to pursue a career in science and, as played (Emmy-winningly) by the venerable Bob Newhart, his every appearance has been a triumph.
It’s another classy turn from the stammering stand-up, even if it is – possibly – his final one on Big Bang. Special effects courtesy of Lucasfilm. No, really.
The gang's preparations for Star Wars Day are interrupted by the news that Professor Proton has died. Leonard and Penny attend the funeral, where they talk about their rejected marriage proposals, but Sheldon has difficulty dealing with the death of his childhood hero - until a surprise visitor helps him cope with his grief. Comedy, starring Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco, with a guest appearance by Bob Newhart.
