That was a good start. I will pay more attention to TVs. I wonder who wrote the script. Maybe the main guy is lazy and sub-contracted a part to a writer that knows arduino and likes robots. I seriously doubt the pop culture is leaning towards DIY electronics. Maybe an easier point of entry is home automation.
Well, the entire episode referenced the fact that the kid was a robotics nerd and that one of the two main characters failed at the city level after burning up some servos, so it wasn't a last minute thing
Omg.... looking at Wikipedia... at least for this season, no two episodes were written by the same guy, they had 12 different writers for 12 episodes
