All we've gotten so far is the information below from ShamyBabboos Tumblr.   When any other information (title, writers, director) I'll post it.

Title was on ShamyBabboos Tumblr, and brought to my attention by by Kev0821, notchinc informed me of the writers and directors and luminous provided some Lenny information.    


Leonard has an interview with Ira Flatow on Science Friday, and it doesn't go well.   Leonard says physics is dead.

Bernadette and Amy are talking about how they are more successful than their guys and how they each hide it from them.

After hearing about Leonard's comments, the other guys get depressed about it.  

Amy and Bernie then start trying to one up the other, as to how is more successful.  Amy boasting of more funding and a new laboratory since returning to Caltech.

Leonard is called into Mrs. Davis' office, where she tells him Cal Tech isn't happy about his negativity about Physics.  Penny is supportive of Leonard during the whole episode. At one point they have a talk and Penny is comforting her husband.

11.06 The Proton Regeneration

Reported by:  Babar

Tape Date: October 03, 2017; Air Date: November 2, 2017

Story: TBD

Teleplay by: TBD

Directed by: Mark Cendrowski

Originally, very little was reported for this episode.  What we had Howard-Bernadette plot where Howard talks about, or gets a vasectomy.    Also, Bob Newhart appears as Professor Proton and Wil Wheaton appears as...Wil Wheaton.  

ETA:  The following was provided by Babar, from a  screener they recieved a couple of weeks after the taping.  

Starts with everyone and Lenny's apartment and Howard is shoveling food down his mouth. Bernie asks him to slow down but he says that he can't have food 12 hours before his vasectomy procedure and is making the most of it. Raj is also doing the same and says he is stress eating. Sheldon then sees on his phone that they are reviving Professor Proton and are recasting the role since Arthur died. Sheldon says that the show is very important to to him and he would like the new "professor Proton" to do it justice. He then starts describing the person he would like to takeover the role and the gang realizes that he's describing himself. He says Professor Proton touched a lot of children and he would also like to touch as many children as possible (lol). Leonard asks him to put that in his audition tape. Amy then says that it would be cool if they cast a woman in the role but Sheldon says "they" already have Ghostbusters and Doctor Who now, what more they want.

Next we see Sheldon in a lab coat preparing for his audition tape with Amy in their apartment. He shows her his expression for "interesting", "very interesting" and angry. Amy says why he would need to be angry? He says that he's rather have it and not want it than want it and not have it. They then began shooting his audition tape for which his does an experiment to find out the mass of an electron using "household objects" but one of the items needed (some type of copper wire) turns out to be a safety hazard. Amy tells him that and to do something else and he gives her his angry expression and says that he did need it after all. Sheldon also dreams about Arthur (the night before I think) and says if he heard the news. That scene has a couple great one liners from Bob Newhart.

At Lenny's apartment, Amy and Sheldon are showing Lenny his audition tape in which he is solving a complicated equation. Amy says that she told him that she "loved it" but if they want to tell him what they think, they can go right ahead. Penny doesn't know what to say but Leonard says that it looks like you were having fun. Sheldon says that that is something Leonard told him to say after seeing one of Penny's bad plays. Amy and Leonard says that maybe he shouldn't so blatantly show his contempt for children in the audition tape. Sheldon says but he does not like kids and they say that he needs to act like he does. Sheldon says that it looks like he needs to coaching of a real actor. Penny is flattered but Sheldon scoffs at her,

Sheldon goes to Wil Wheaton's house and asks him for Patrick Stewart's number but when he says no, Sheldon says Wil will have to do. Next scene; Lenny and Amy are walking up the stairs of their building and Leonard sees on his phone that they already cast Professor Proton. We then hear Sheldon shout "Wheaton". The 3 then go back down the stairs quickly.

Sheldon goes to Wil's house and turn down the role since he isn't even a scientist but Wil says that he is an actor and will try to do the role justice. Shledon says that they started out as enemies but then became friends and he wouldn't want Sheldon to become his enemy again. Wil says he doesn't see much difference and slams the door in his face. Wil says that if doesn't leave he will set his dog on Sheldon. Sheldon says he doesn't have a dog but can't be sure since Wil is such a good actor. He also asks they guys minus Howard in the university cafeteria to help him stop the show by calling the production company and they say no. Last scene of the episode is Sheldon having another dream about Arthur to tell him about Wil and Bob Newhart  has a bunch of more great one liners.


Howard has his vasectomy and is put on bed rest for a few days. Bernie goes to her 16-week check up and is also put on bed rest because she is straining herself. Penny comes at their house to check on them. Halley then starts crying (they hear on the baby monitor). Bernie is about to get up but Penny says that she can do it.  Bernie says that or Stuart can close his shop take a bus and do it instead. Penny says that they don't trust her but they pretend that that is not the case. Next scene of their house and it's all quiet Howard and Bernie says that they can enjoy having this time together before baby #2 comes. They then wonder how it got so quiet and call Penny. She jokes that she put Halley to sleep by dipping her pacifier in bourbon but they can't tell if she is joking or not. Next scene with Penny in the kitchen making a bottle for Halley. Amy comes there and says she's there to check on her friends put Penny realizes that Howardette called her to check on Penny. Penny says that do they all think she's irresponsible? But Amy says no; she is just "fun loving" which Penny says is just a nicer word for irresponsible.  Cut to Howardette's room and they call Penny using Howard's bell app he got earlier. They ask her to get snacks but she complains that why'd the get Amy to check on her and don't trust her .Penny goes to check on Halley again and Howardette then hear on the baby monitor how good Penny is with Halley and feel bad. Halley then says "mama" which is her first word which Howardette hear surprised. Penny then says "take that suckers, she called me mama" over the baby monitor making Bernie angry.

Ruchi is back in this episode, too. Looks like she's here to stay. What is this, her third episode already? In my heart I've always secretly hoped Yvette the vet would be the one for Raj. Too bad. (Yes, even though we saw her just for an episode years ago. Go figure.). So long as Raj has something to do in the show these days, I guess.  Col Williams is back also.

11.09 The Bitcoin Entanglement  

Reported by: Mirs1

Tape Date: October 31 , 2017; Air Date: TBD

Story: Steve Holland, Andy Gordon and Jeremy Howe

Teleplay by: Dave Goetsch, Maria Ferrari, Antony Del Broccolo

Teleplay by: Mark Cendrowski

Stuart and Zach are in the episode.  Part of the plot: "...the guys thought they had an old bitcoin on their laptop that is now worth lots of money, but the laptop was at Zack's, so they had to go there and get it back.  The reason its at Zach's, is because it’s saved on a folder on Leonard’s old laptop.  He had given that laptop to Penny and she gave to Zack.  The Lenny plot is rather funny, with no drama.   Sheldon says something about how they all learned a lesson today, and Amy asks “What is it?”.  Sheldon whispers “I don’t know.”
