The Discovery Dissipation

Picking up a thread from a previous episode, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) continues to struggle with the notoriety of his famous scientific discovery (which only came about through a mistake). In an attempt to make her boyfriend feel better, Amy (Mayim Bialik) even reaches out to Wil Wheaton who attempts to use his own past as an example to make Sheldon feel better about his circumstances. Finally coming to terms with his celebrity, Sheldon is upset when Leonard (Johnny Galecki) disproves his roommate’s entire theory (and takes away his accidental, but still greatest, achievement).

The Itchy Brain Simulation

To try and stop Sheldon (Jim Parsons) from getting upset over the discovery of a rented DVD his roommate never returned, Leonard (Johnny Galecki) agrees to walk a mile in Sheldon’s shoes by agreeing to wear an uncomfortable and itchy sweater which constantly itches and bothers him (without acting crazy or complaining) while attempting to return the DVD. The fact that the store went out of the business years ago and the owner has died, however, make his quest a bit harder than he expected.

The Proton Displacement

Sheldon (Jim Parsons) becomes miffed when his childhood idol Professor Proton (Bob Newhart) enlists the help of Leonard (Johnny Galecki) to look over a scientific paper he was writing. Neither his conversation with Amy (Mayim Bialik), who points out how some people might consider him annoying, nor his attempt to make the former television scientist jealous by publicly hanging out with Bill Nye make the scientist feel any better about the situation.

The Hofstadter Insufficiency

In the show’s Seventh Season premiere Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) bond while Leonard (Johnny Galecki) parties in the North Sea on his science excursion, Howard (Simon Helberg) attempts to shake Raj (Kunal Nayyar) out of his funk caused by loosing his girlfriend (Kate Micucci) by taking his best friend to a faculty mixer, and Amy(Mayim Bialik) and Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) room together during a science convention out of town. The result is a rather lackluster opener to the season, with a few fun moments, that provides three separate stories, only one of which has much to offer.
