Can someone explain this BBT joke to me?
In season 5 episode 22 (The Stag Convergence), they make the following joke...
"Bernadette: Howard already took care of it. Plus, he set up our beautiful wedding website with cute little facts about our family histories. Do you know, for a while in Poland, my family and his family were neighbors.
Penny: Oh, that’s cool.
Amy: No, it’s not. I’ll explain it to you later."
It's my understanding that this joke is implying that Howard's family and Bernadette's family were neighbors during the Holocaust. I know during that time many of the Polish would offer up information to the Nazis, ratting out their Jewish neighbors. Is Amy merely implying that Bernadette's family could have been one of those families? OR is the joke implying that she knows for sure? My friend and I had a serious argument over this. I thought maybe Amy ...Read more

The Big Bang Shipper Theory (POLL)
I don't care what Will Wheaton says, in every show we've all had that one couple, the one true pairing, the ship we will go down with and Leonard & Penny are mine. Since I'm not the only viewer of this show, and this is most certainly not the only couple on it either, I thought it was time to take a little poll. Vote for as many as you like for as many times you want to, but there can only be one winner: lets find out which is The Big Bang Theory's OTP!

Its Christmas time and we got a Christmas themed Big Bang/homage to 'Its a Wonderful Life' - or possibly 'Six degrees of Sheldon Cooper'

We got a look at how the group would have turned out if Leonard didn't live with Sheldon.

I thought it might be another special ...Read more

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
