Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

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.
