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

  • Penny's Hair and New Job

    Hate her new hair! Her new job does not suit her for her tv character at all. Drug reps always have to have a 4 year college degree. The way she got the job is just totally stupid and unbelievable. It seams you are trying to get her to fit in better with the other cast members when she already did. I do not like anything about the new Penny. Bring the old Penny back please.moreless
  • Penny's Hair

    Hate, hate, hate her short hair! She looks heavier, much less attractive! It does not suit her tv character at all now! Yuck! Grow it back! I love the show and all the characters but that put a big damper on it.
  • Just spin-off "Sheldon" so I can have my show back

    I like/love the show, but I loathe Sheldon. And when the entire episode is all, or almost all, about Sheldon, it makes it hard or even painful to watch. His... "quirkiness" (I'm being nice) was funny at first, but it's since long over-stayed it's welcome. Every other character on this show has evolved except Sheldon. And the worst part is the others continue to enable his behavior that, in the real world would be unacceptable. As for "then why don't you just watch something else"? No, I don't want to watch something else. I want to watch the show I came to love over the first few seasons...moreless

  • We want Zack back!

    I would love it if "Zack" (Brian SmIth) would come back more often. His 'dimness' is a great counterpoint to all the 'intelligence' shown by the characters. Even Penny is getting smarter in her own way. There needs to be someone for the gang to play off. 'Zack's' averageness can be so appreciated and he is so not threatening. I really loved the scene where the guys showed him the laser reflect off the moon. And the scene where he went as a Superhero to the Halloween party, and when Sheldon wanted to cultivate a new circle of friends. Please, please, please, to whomever is in charge of characters, make Zack a recurring role much more often.moreless
