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

  • The Sheldon alienation

    I am waiting for them to write the obvious episode of Sheldon having a dream about being an alien spy here on Earth to see just how technologically advanced we are.
  • Please some writer KILL AMY! What an awful character!

    This smart and funny show celebrating genius turned into a pathetic soap opera wanna-be. Sheldon Cooper was one of the most original characters on tv in the first 3 seasons. But then writers decided to just piss all over on what made this show original, brought in Amy, and it's all downhill from there. Season nine has a dumbed down and suddenly in-love Sheldon. That would have been an unthinkable travesty in earlier seasons. It is a betrayal of proper character development. It's hard to watch new episodes without cringing. Amy's death and Sheldon getting a hot assistant that is into him in spite of his indifference would fix all the clumsy plot lines and bring back a bit of former spark. Enough with the sappy crap.moreless
  • We have only seen the first season on .

    I got tired of only seeing the same old shows night after night. Atlantic broadband here in Cumberland, MD. I guess has only the first season. Quit watching, sorry.
  • Amy Ruins The Show

    I loved the show untill Amy showed is too talks about dirty stuff all the would have given 10 if amy hadnt been included.
  • Much love, but....

    The plots this season are more situational than relational. It's still funny, but it's less fun. I think they got renewed for several more seasons and maybe didn't have enough story planned to stretch that long. They are treading a bit of water so far - Penny and Leonard got married but nothing at all has changed. Hell, they've barely been seen together since the wedding! I think they need to get Sheldon and Amy back together asap, let her do whatever "blossom"ing (ha!) she needs to do but do it fast. Apparently Raj is still dating the creepy red head though we've only seen her once this season. Something HAPPEN for heaven's sake! For all this bellyaching, I do love the show and still look forward to it each week. I hope they find their footing again soon and move forward with the changes that happen in the characters' lives rather than resetting them to zero.moreless
