When Sheldon Cooper learns that they’re going to reboot Professor Proton, he’s thrilled. At dinner, he makes the announcement and soon realizes he should be the next star of the show.
Soon, we cut to Amy and Sheldon filming an audition tape. At this point, it’s clear that Sheldon Cooper may be too smart for this kid’s series. Talking about using potatoes to power a radio is simply too boring for Sheldon.
But, that could mean danger for the kids who watch the show…
Sheldon’s Professor Proton Teaches ASCII-Binary…
Sheldon Cooper encourages his viewers to gather items like rubbing alcohol or dry ice, which should not be in the hands of children. Unfortunately, Sheldon doesn’t understand what it means to be Professor Proton.
“So you see boys and girls,” said Sheldon, before entering a long, scientific rant next to his drawing board. Then, Sheldon’s version of Professor Proton tells the kids to make sure they’re only friends with other smart kids.
“Until next week, this is Professor Proton saying Zero-One-Zero-Zero-Zero-One… That’s bye in ASCII-binary. Or, good bi-nary!” said Sheldon on the tape.
Too “Confusing or Dangerous?”
About this time, Sheldon turns to his friends to ask what they think. Amy replies for him, adding “Well, I already told him that I love it, but if you found it confusing or dangerous or 3-4x too long, now is the time to share,” said Amy.
Essentially, Sheldon Cooper may be too smart to be Professor Proton. Luckily, later in the episode, we learn that Wil Wheaton gets the role. Sheldon also learns that it’s more important for the children for someone to take on the role who can connect with the kids and teach a love for science.
However, we would love to see Sheldon Cooper guest star on the series, alongside Wil Wheaton. Sheldon could be a genius scientist (or a mad scientist) who shows up to teach little geniuses like him advanced theories or experiments.
For now, it’s safer for everyone to have Wil Wheaton host.
