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

  • Hilarious characters, writing, and references

    Lol I love the Big Bang Theory especially in the first 2 or 3 seasons. I feel like it's not as funny as it used to be, it would focus on geeks and their geeky shenanigans, but now it is becoming an annoying relationship show like Friends (not that I don't like Friends). I still love Big Bang Theory, but I don't enjoy it as much as I did around when it came out, I remember how excited I would get for a new episode.moreless
  • Nerds are not naturally funny

    Jim Parsons' Sheldon is nearly schizophrenic. I don't understand how he can win so many Emmys with such a stereotype. I suppose there's no one funnier on TV these days.
  • Who DOESN'T love this show? Me

    binged watched several repeats when I was home sick a few months ago, maybe 12 or 13 episodes.. So many tired old jokes from other shows over the years. the set up and jokes were visible from a mile away. The writers have 5 or 6 versions of 5 or 6 jokes and just mix them up from show to show, The lead knocking on the neighbor's door saying her name a thousand times cause he's OCD wasn't funny the first time and sure wasn't the third time it was used in the same sum total of this show is a bunch of supposed nerds with no life sitting on a couch eating take out food all the time summing up to each other how they have no life.

    Never understood how people got so wrapped up in the fake phony lives of the fake phony characters on Friends 20 yrs ago and still can't figure out why everyone is so wrapped up in the fake phony lives of fake phony characters on this show like some how they are real. It is a TV show, they are fake not real people.moreless
  • Most overrated show on network television.

    It stupefies me that people find this amusing. Perhaps these fans are the same people who emerged from school--even college--with no serious interest in anything at all, and no ability to discuss anything useful, but who--should last night's football game be broached--can analyze it with such ferocity that, had they similarly attacked their careers, they would have retired with one quadrillion dollars at age twenty-three. I have yet to perceive that any of the show's characters is a genius. Oh, but they certainly are nerds--of course! Everyone whose IQ is three points above Joe Average Dullard must be a nerd, a loser, ugly, and--of course--a virgin until age fifty. Whether it's "Malcolm in the Middle" or "Saved by the Bell" or, in fact, "The Big Bang Theory," the vulgarized depiction of intelligent people as an object of scorn and mockery simply disgusts one. End of statement.moreless

    God, this show is so overrated and so dumb, that I just want to blow my head off.
