Storyline

After Sheldon scientifically calculates his life expectancy, he is dismayed to learn that he will be a few years short of the time when he will be able to transfer his conscious self into a robotic format. So he decides to live a healthier lifestyle to eke out those few extra years. Those changes include eating healthier and exercising. When both those avenues have negative consequences unexpected to him, Sheldon thinks he's figured out a way to exist in his current life without taking the risks associated with everyday tasks. As an incredulous Leonard, Penny, Howard and Raj look on to what Sheldon is doing, only a celebrity sighting may be able to bring Sheldon back to real life. Written by Huggo

"The Cruciferous Vegetable Amplification" is another funny ep of "The Big Bang Theory"
1 October 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In a nutshell about this ep of "The Big Bang Theory" from last season: Sheldon has calculated he won't live long enough for his being to be transferred to robotic form so instead of the usual pizza on Thursday, he tries broccoli sprouts. That almost gets him a trip to a hospital. He also tries jogging with Penny...which doesn't get him farther than a few steps before his sprouts experience bursts again! So he decides to become Shelbot-with his face on a robotic monitor and a Green Lantern shirt under it...Another funny episode with Jim Parsons making Sheldon's eccentricities quite appealingly hilarious despite his less-than-polite-demeanor. Oh, and once again, we get to hear Penny sing "Soft Kitty" to him in a unique way...
