    OK, so I finally forced myself to watch an entire episode of this. For me, I think it's a show that is destroyed by it's characters, much like Sienfeld was. Good premise, but the implementation is just painful.

    I could see some potential in it, but not the way they're doing it.

    And the Bi-Monthly thing just pulled me completely out of the show for a few minutes. Apparently these guys aren't geniuses--they're idiots who pretend to be nerds.

    Come on! You get in your time machine and go back a week. Geez! :D

    Just watched this episode last night. Maybe I was just not in a funny mood, but I thought this was their weakest episode yet. Seemed more like any typical sitcom instead of one about nerds. Still better than 95.3% of the other sitcoms.

    Can't. Then you'd have seen the episode, removing the impetus for the trip back in time in the first place.

    Classic rookie time traveller mistake. :D

    I always wondered why that Seinfeld show disappeared after the pilot. Now that you've explained it, it makes total sense.

    Well, it wouldn't have helped get rid of the time machine, since needing to have the time machine to stop yourself from buying the time machine is a paradox.

    But Leonard missed a bet on going back to avoid the conversation with Sheldon.

    Step 1: Go back in time to cancel out the desired action (warning: action being canceled cannot result in the loss of use of the time machine)
    Step 2: Write a note to your future self requiring you to re-perform the time travel action
    Step 3: Include a direction to future self to leave that note again.

    There. You've created a stable temporal structure by substituting the original temporally unstable motivation (because you're canceling that motivation) with a temporally stable motivation (the perpetually left note for your future self).


    :D
