Show Summary

Created by writer/producers Chuck Lorre (of Two and a Half Men) and Bill Prady (of Gilmore Girls) comes The Big Bang Theory, a sitcom that shows what happens when hyperintelligent roommates/physicists Sheldon and Leonard meet Penny, a beautiful woman moving in next door--and realize they know next to nothing about life outside of the lab. Rounding out the crew are the smarmy Wolowitz, who thinks he's as sexy as he is brainy, and Koothrappali, who suffers from an inability to speak in the presence of a woman. The show distinguishes itself by being unafraid to toss scientific references and technobabble into an otherwise standard sitcom, even employing a physicist to keep things accurate. In doing so, it allows Sheldon and Leonard to do for science what Frasier's Crane brothers did for fine dining, art, and opera. Theme Song: "The History of Everything" by Barenaked Ladies

  • Please change theme song

    This show needs to realize when they have worn out a theme song.

    I mute my TV every time the show starts with that same theme song we had had to hear since show started.

    It is so over used it's annoying. I used to like the song. Then after thousands of times, it got old. Real old.

    It's over used and worn out. Enough already!!!!



    Also, like many have been posting, the show is starting to get very boring. It's like every episode is just going through the motions. Just isn't as enjoyable as it used to be. Who is writing this crap? Sorry, but it just isn't fun to watch anymore.moreless
  • Boring "science" drama

    1.0
    While I always kind of thought this show was a little corny with the laugh tracks and all, I still enjoyed watching the first season when it was about four nerdy, social awkward guys trying unsuccessfully to get laid or at least talk to a girl while juggling their respective careers in the science community.



    Now the show has devolved to watching some semi-serious "drama" about four wannabe-nerds in relationships. There is very little of the science aspect involved anymore, save for a cheap joke here and there followed by an even cornier laugh track than before. While the intent was to create character development, all the writers managed to do was create boring characters and boring storylines.moreless

    I USED to watch Big Bang Theory religiously every night but it has become so unbearable now that there has been such a cheesy audience laugh inserted that I cannot watch it.



    I'm pretty sure that I have heard the exact same laugh sequences before from HAPPY DAYS.



    Sorry a great comedy spoilt again from the US

    I think it's time we get rid of kunal's character whether or not he has a girlfriend he's too whiny and needy and annoying to hear
  • Amazing show which needs to improve or end.

    4.0
    I still watch the re-runs. I have seen some of the older episodes several times and still laugh.. but this current season has been hit and miss. Some funny, most barely getting a laugh. Penny has become boring. The endless relationship between Sheldon and Amy is dragging on. Bernadette continues to be the best character on the show but is the least paid. The pay difference between the top 5 and Bernadette & Amy is amazing.. $500,000 vs $60,000 .. Most of the supporting actors are gone.. it is just getting a little boring.moreless

    There are lots of comedy couplings on the air, but some of them should think about breaking up.
