Big Bang Theory "The Proton Displacement" 11/07/13 S7E7

Professor Proton versus The Science Guy!

Great episode. Everything that made Bob Newhart so good last season was even better this time. And I was counting the seconds until he made his first Penny DOM joke (didn't take long "I remember your girlfriend").

And we got some real honest talk about why Leonard puts up with Sheldon.

So. Many. Lines.

“They’re going to have sex before Sheldon and I do. I knew it!”

Sheldon: "I’m not going to bother him. I’m going to talk to him." Leonard: "He thinks there’s a difference."

"Look who’s here to put the ‘Jew’ in jewelry night!"

And the lightsaber belt buckles. Oh Raj...

Wouldn't her Grandmas live in Nebraska? Drunk Penny probably just didn't want to get into it with him...

Bob Newhart ruled that show. He was hysterical. I want them to add him to the cast. He was awesome.

I was a little surprised they got away with the sword-fight joke!

I don't remember any dirty old man joke. It's obvious he enjoys Penny, but, then wouldn't any guy? I don't see him being portrayed at all like a dirty old man....

I really don't like what they're doing to Raj. I don't really find the gay but not gay jokes funny - at least in the long term. It seems the writers can't figure out what to do with him either. They realized that "can't talk" bit got old. They can't find him a girlfriend because another major character at this point would throw off the balance of the show.

If they dropped him from the show, the show wouldn't really suffer at this point.

He's always been my least favorite character, even to the point of really disliking him a couple seasons ago. To their credit, they've made him a bit more likeable, but I still would not miss him either...

I think that this point in the characters lives is pretty true to life. I remember times when in my group of close friends all were coupled up except for 1 person. It was always tough for that 1 person to keep doing things with the couples. I've been there, and I appreciate that they are keeping Raj around even though he no longer really fits in. Plus, I like the character and the actor. YMMV.

I like him too. I think the writers are having a tough time trying to figure out what to do with him. And I suspect that the producers don't want to find him a long term girlfriend because they don't want to have to pay another full time actor. And again, it would upset the balance of the show.

You could be right. But to me it seems like pretty standard group dynamics for twentysomethings.

Spoiler:
Raj's girlfriend returns in upcoming episode (I think one after next) Penny goes to see why she dropped him. I assume she will get back with him and be a regular.

I loved it when AFF said to Bob Newhart, 'Hey we have the same orthopedic shoes, who would have thought I would be sharing shoes with the rich and famous' or something like that.
I liked the whole show except Raj. He is just too pathetic. I mean the whole show is about a bunch of pathetic guys, but they are dragging themselves out of it and Raj needs too. I am glad his girlfriend is coming back. I like her, but would rather him date Leslie Winkle. I love her, but I can't imagine them together.
