from wikipedia: The Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom created and executive produced by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, which premiered on CBS on September 24, 2007.

It concerns two male Caltech prodigies in their twenties, one an experimental physicist (Leonard) and the other a theoretical physicist (Sheldon), who live across the hall from an attractive blonde waitress with show-biz aspirations (Penny).

Leonard and Sheldon's geekiness and intellect are contrasted with Penny's social skills and common sense for comedic effect. Two equally geeky friends of theirs, Howard and Rajesh, are also main characters. The show is produced by Warner Bros. Television and Chuck Lorre Productions.

I enjoy this show A LOT, always puts a smile on my face or even makes me laugh. It is light hearted, well written and executed and speaks directly to the nerd in me and all the nerds I've got to know in my life.
Probably the perfect show for a faneditor, not to fanedit it, but to find some of his strange behavior portrayed.

I started watching this show as per your suggestion, and I absolutely LOVE it!!! The best show I have seen in a long time. hehe, maybe because I can relate to these guys. I have so far only watched the first season, but I thought it was superb, and I am really looking forward to starting season 2.

love that show!!!


and yeah

speaks directly to the nerd in me and all the nerds I've got to know in my life
talking about that:

while watching this episode where penny asks the comic book shop owner which comic book to buy for her nephew he tells her about this hellblazer comic book where this confidence man has cancer and fights the forces of heaven and hell i turned to my wife smiling and said "that comic book he is holding right now: shall i pull it from the shelve and show you the signature on the cover that says ´from garth to heinrich´?"

I then got that eye rolling again...

:)

I've been watching this show since episode 1 and absolutely love it. It's hilarious as hell and Sheldon never fails to make me laugh. It has potential to become one of the greatest sitcoms of our time.

I really enjoy this show too. :smile:

I usually watch it just before I go to bed, which is perfect cause it's a nice & gentle comedy. Sheldon cracks me up, the one where that Penny girl gives him his birthday present I pissed myself laughing at that.

I'm a little wary. Any show predominant with nerds in it seems like it would be filled to the brim with virgin jokes, and I refuse to watch anything where virginity is a central source of comic relief. I like Barenaked Ladies though, who did the theme song.

this is not the case at all. This is a really smart show. and well done. Not a typical nerd show at all.

Just finished watching season 4, and I must say this is yet another show that has gone down the drain. The characters and the situations have lost or are in the process of losing what made them unique to become stock sitcom clichés, and the whole thing now plays like a slightly quirky imitation of Friends in which everyone will at some point improbably have the hots or fall for everyone else, plus revolving around endless tired and tiresome confused sexuality jokes.

I used to be a huge fan, but now I'm not sure I even want a fifth season.

I see what you mean Dwight, good and correct points made.

I still love to watch it regardless though.



EDIT: Remember how Sheldon drank beer in the first episode? what happened to that Sheldon? Yeah i know the characers need a bit of time to fall into place, still.

Definitely still extremely enjoyable. Makes me laugh every time. I've even gotten my sister and her boyfriend into the show, my dad will occasionally watch it as well. My sister says that I remind her of Sheldon but I feel I'm more of a cross between Sheldon and Leonard.

Yep, I want him back too! I would like to think the fifth season will improve things, but I'm afraid they'll decide to keep making the show more mainstream (=generic). :-(

Just kidding :D

Im pretty much rojesh or however its spelled, so intimidated by the female variety. Or it could simply be im awestruck by the female form perhaps.

Fairly certain history will prove you right. Though i can live with BAZINGA! sheldon just as much as beer swiggin' sheldon. Why cant we have a hybrid? Maybe by way of some bizarre transporter accident we could get both?

I like Bazinga Sheldon, but in the fourth season he wasn't even that. What did he get, two Bazingas in the whole season? Three? While out of the foursome he's arguably the one who has lost his essence the least, he's still getting watered down. Unless we think of Amy as a sort of surrogate Sheldon in which to test further character changes that would anger the die-hards if applied directly to him.
