By a mile, the best comedy show on tv. I can live in an island watching only this show, and i will never get bored. i can watch all the episodes over and over again. It's funny, you don't have to be a genius to appreciate the show. I don't like science stuff, but i think its their tv chemistry that makes the show great. Bazinga!
Just a penny for our thought: how about casting/guesting Rowan "Mr. Bean" Atkinson as the true father of Sheldon? That will be hilarious!
If you watch the Big Bang Theory you might need to make sure the neighbors don't think your crazy when they hear you laughing loudly. When you guys win the award, please don't change anything! I just love; you guys.
Okay this is a show I follow every week, and every time I am laughing so much. This show is maybe the only comedy show I don't feel have lost it humor. It is the only show I can see over and over again (I have season 1-4).
But I think it will not be as funny if the show didn't have Sheldon Cooper - he is the glue that hold the group together, but also the show. And what makes the show so funny and kind of unique? It is as I said before Sheldon, but also every episode because theres genius quotes and one liners, but also the dynamic between the characters.
This is the best comedy show ever, and I don't understand why someone would not like this show.
Best show currently on TV. My dad, my boyfriend, and I all watch Big Bang Theory almost every single night. Probably the only show I would go buy every episode on blue-ray, just to watch them over and over.
The show is hilarious. Sheldon is probably the most unique character i've ever seen on a TV show and you become very attached to all the characters. All the episodes relate which makes it even more funny because they talk about stuff from past seasons. Also tons of one liners.
I did not like this show at all not even funny to me! the characters are very annoying! i dont expect this show to last the season. if it does i will be very surprised. I thought when how i met your mother came out i thought it would be very stupid but i gave it a try and i love it. i thought i would give big bang theory the benefit of the dought and give it a watch. why did i waste my precious time? this is just my opinion and i respect others opinion. this network is all about drama and csi franchise not counting how i met your mother and two and a half men they should give up on comedies
After watching Season One I became totally hooked on thishilariouslight-heartedfamily show about a group of friends whoare both brilliant physicists working at Cal Tech as well as beingself-professed nerds.
The four best friends and work colleagues spend their time working towards that (in Sheldon's case) inevitable Nobel Prize, playing computer games, going to Star Trek conventions, reading comic books and, with varying degrees of success, trying to meet and date the same pretty and elusive type of girl that they never had any luck with at school.
The chemistry between the characters is perfect, the writing is fresh, superb andconsistentlyfunny and the actors play their parts brilliantly, in particular Jim Parsons who hasdeservedlywon 2 Emmy Awards, aTCA Award and aGolden Globe as well asreceiving8 other nominations for his outstanding portrayal of Sheldon. His timing and delivery are nothing short of perfect.
I highly recommend you take a look at this show. Once you do you'll be hooked along with the rest of us.
The Big Bang Theoryis a show centered on male scientists and their lives. It exhibits how these incredibly intelligent guys are totally oblivious to the real world. Emersed in science they have no idea how to talk to girls, or escape that geekpersona.
The Big Bang Theoryis one of the funniest shows I have come across. The main male characters: Sheldon (my favorite) is a OCD statistical genius, who is oblivious to sarcasm and talks like a computer, (Jim Parsons won two Emmy's and a Golden Globe for this role), Leonard, Sheldon's room mate, who is in love with Penny (the hot girl across the hall) is a cute, more normal version of a nerd, Raj has been known for his intense issues talking to women, he can only talk to them when he drinks, and Howard (my second favorite), is the guy who is absolutely obsessed with girls but can seem to pick up a lot of them. These guys are all so funny. They constantly run into situations where their professions and odd personalities leave them at the bottom of the male food chain. I think this show is so funny. This show does a great job of showing nerdsin their element. This is a greatly written show, with fantastic acting and is definitelyworth it. It's not the type of show that you have to see 24/7 but is is just captivating enough for a great laugh.
I'm a big sitcom fan however, I have to be engaged and feel like I know the characters before I will watch every episode or even buy a Season disc set.
This is one of those shows that has caught my attention from the very beginning. I have one season set and hoping that my husband buys me the second. It is something that I like to watch over and over. There are not to many sitcoms out there that draw you into the show and keep you there for the duration. I'm glad this does and it will stay on my tv watch list for years.
loved the show from the first season...but somehow it is losing its glamour .... repeated jokes and stories. nothing new nothing to keep me going ...which was fine for the first seasons but right now i have the feeling as if i tune in to listen to some jokes from some random figures once a week.
I watched this show for the first two years before I grew tired of it. But just now I decided to give it another go with both Will Wheaton AND Brent Spiner on the guest list. Will has been plopping up in a lot of sci-fi and comedy shows lately to both my enjoyment and dislike. He's typically portrayed as the arrogant dip shit who thinks that everyone should bow down to him for his brief stint on Star Trek TNG. And when he's not cast as "himself" he's playing the same role (see Eureka). Nothing against him personally. He seems like a lovely chap. But he needs to branch out.
But wait! This is about Big Bang Theory and not Will Wheaton. So let's talk about that instead. Remember It's been about two years since I've watched the show so I came into this particular episode with fresh hopeful eyes. The opening scene is in the comic book store where the two male main characters are looking at a sword. The episode has barely faded in before we get treated to some canned laughter. I pose you this question. Why is it so funny that two men are standing over a sword? Who laughs at that? Well jocks do. "Hey dude! Look at the nerds doing their nerd things". That reminded me of why I stopped watching this show.
Then the show goes on in this manner. Throwing laugh tracks over perfectly normal things (simple stuff like which version of a comic book here you like better). Is it funny just because we got a sort of Laurel and Hardy thing going on here? One short and one tall guy? Or are the networks telling us that if we don't laugh at nerds we're idiots?
The show does have some genuine funny moments that ain't forcefed with canned laughter, but they are far between.
Give me a truly funny comedy like Community any day of the week! Leave this for the "big masses" and let 'em continue to think we (nerds) are some strange subculture when in fact our way of life is slowly taking over the world and their precious mainstream media.
This show is an absolute gem! It has great humor, interesting drama, and characters that are relatable (don't include Sheldon in that above statement!). The humor: The humor is top-notch! Not sex-based like Two and a Half Men (which in my opinion is still a good show), but all kinds of humor, from food, to germs, and of course, the roommate agreement. Just genius humor in here. The Characters: Leonard: A typical nerd, but the most normal of the group. He tries to keep an image of himself, which I find relatable. Sometimes he has dry humor, but sometimes there are moments where he is the 2nd funniest nerd in the show. See below for who the #1 nerd! Howard: A great character! He is a total freak, but that's why I like him! Raj: The thing I like about Raj is the fact that he makes slurs against his own people! And the man who plays him doesn't mind, or else he would have quit! Penny: The stereotypical dumb blonde (remember, campared to geniuses), but played excellently and is a great and complex character. Sheldon aka #1: He is one of the main reasons I watch the show. He is the perfect unreasonable character, played superbly by Jim Parsons. The litte quirks about him, from his insecurities, freindship agreements, to his large ones, like cleaning Penny's room, and dumb people, he is one of the greatest characters ever conceived, and Parsons should recieve the #1 bill for his role! Overall, a great show, and one of the few good shows that has everything I like. 9.5/10= Great in my book! That's all for now!
I love this show. Finally I find a show that has the characters bring up superhero, Star Wars and a bunch of other sci-fiction sh@t I'm into! thank you guy that co-created 2 and a 1/2 men. I wish i discoved this show like back when it started i got a lot of episodes to watch to catch up. the show focus on 3 doctors and an eneiger and there hot blonde friend on their crazy adventures that I find very funny. so far my friend character is Sheldon that guy is awesome and also Penny who's last name is never bought up
I absolutely love this show. Sheldon's humor is so dry, yet hilarious at the same time. Hisarrogance is blissand the fact that he barely understands sarcasm makes his character even more funny. Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, Rajesh and Penny are all great characters and really make the show interesting. The new additions to the show (Bernadette and Amy-Farrah Fowler) make the show worth while to watch and keep the humor continuous. I'm really excited for Season 5, I think it's going to be the best (although that's what I say for every season)!
I always see a reason to be bored in some shows and I didn't see one here. I gotta say, Arrested Development and the Office are for older guys and I do not appreciate their humor. I go for a livelier humor like this and Friends and Scrubs (Chandler, Cox, Sheldon. First three).
This show represents the fun side of geeks. As I have been telling everyone for years, being a geek is fun! I don't know the first thing about computers, but I have always found myself surrounded by (mostly IT) geeks. This show explains why. The awkward, anti-social, inside-humor, interesting hobby people of the world are a blast to be around with. In every character of this show I can recognise a few of my friends. And you don't have to be a genius to see that observation is half of the fun. That is why so many of us love this show. After a brief dip halfway through last season, it has really picked up the speed again. I am glad, because I would hate to see this show get cancelled because of a few bad episodes. May the force be with you!
Two of my friends say this show is decent and worth watching. I have tried to get into it. But the show just annoy me. Too much fake laughter put in when the jokes are not even remotely funny. I am all for geeks taking place, but they just have to bring something to the table. Big Bang Theory just does not do that for me. I find myself quickly changing channel when the show comes on.
well this show isnt going to fail like two and a half men as long as they keep the same cast this show has amazed me for the last 4 seasons so im glad its here to stay for awhile i knew from the first couple of episodes to start off the season it is going to be as great as the others i love the big bang theory and i cant wait to see what happens next
There is something for everyone. . fandom geek, comic book geek, science geek, gamer geeks, shut-ins, hermits....This show is a real comedic gem w/strong cast and a HUGE star in the making in Jim Parsons.
I only recently sat down with my son and watched the first 2 seasons and all of the current season 3. I cannot believe we didn't check out the show earlier. It's truly a great sitcom. Jim Parsons as Sheldon Cooper is a HUGE gem and great find for us. I love all of the fandom references (being a fandom geek myself). I love how they dress. The cast is strong and the timing is really great. I cannot believe that the same guy beind "Two and a half Men" (which I DETEST) is behind this show. Seriously? How did that happen?! Regardless of how it did, I'm so glad it did. This show makes you guffaw and laugh and it has heart. More than you might think. And honestly? I think that many of us can relate to these guys and their love for science and technology more than many other characters on TV right now. Now "Get out of my spot" and go watch!
It seemed to be a pretty popular show so I had to check it out. However, the first thing that killed it for me was the existence of a laugh track. I have spent years recovering from laugh track overload caused by watching too many sitcoms in the 90s. I firmly believe that it makes people dumber by teaching them when to laugh even though the audience may not know why it's funny, if at all. The jokes themselves aren't that bad but I find it hard to believe that 'nerds' are really that socially stupid and hopeless. Clearly they have no reasoning skills which kind of nullifies the title. And of course there's the bubbly-Hooters-Ugg-wearing Victoria's-Secret-Pink-collection-college-girl blonde next door who has the antidote called common sense. Really? Nerds can't just have nerdy girlfriends who like the same stuff they do? Thus the cookie cutter cliches are too much to get past, especially when it's the foundation of the show.
The Big Bang Theory is another one of those shows i would have never even bother watching if it wasn't for somebody telling me how good it actually was. I don't think the show will ever provide a laugh out loud moment for me, but it always finds a way to make me laugh. The show is about four of the dorkiest adults you could ever imagine, they're all scientists, they wear shirts that depict superhero logos, they watch Battlestar Galactica, and they have a day scheduled were they play Halo. This show is sure to make you laugh, why not give it a look.
While the title of my post is a bit of hyperbole, this is definitely the worst sitcom I have seen in a long time. I don't watch a ton of them anymore because you can tell they will be horrible without seeing them. I thought that about this, but gave it a chance due to the good reviews and recommendations from friends. I don't know what others see in this, but it is absolutely terrible. My girlfriend and I did not laugh or smirk once. If you enjoy Community, Parks & Rec, earlier seasons of The Office or Arrested Development or funny shows, under no circumstances should you watch this. If you like Two and a Half Men or According to Jim, then I would probably recommend this show because the humor and writing is very reminiscent of those types of "comedies."
Just watched another episode, my 4th, and it's just as bad as the other three. I'm not trying to be rude, but I honestly can not understand why people like it. I am really looking forward to speaking with friends who like the show so they can explain to me what is funny it. The jokes are either tired and obvious or just plain not funny, the laugh track is insanely overused and usually used anytime anyone says anything regardless of whether or not something humorous happened/was said.
I absolutely adore this show and everything about it! I don't have any other favorites that are currently on the air. So this show has become my 'Friends' and 'The West Wing' of this decade! I've been watching for a couple of years and no one got me hooked I just tuned in one day and became hooked to Jim Parson's (Sheldon Cooper) and Johnny Galecki's (Leonard Hofstadter) storylines and their chemistry! I love the spice of Simon Helberg's (Howard Wolowitz) and Kunal Nayyar's (Rajesh Koothrappali) mixed in with Kaley Cuoco's (Penny)
They all have fabulous chemistry and (Co-Creators) Bill Prady and Chuck Lorre did a great job finding the perfect crew! I've had the pleasure of meeting most of the above since I have been to a few tapings of TBBT. In case you are not aware; the show is filmed live in front of a studio audience. Its one of the most amazing experiences to see this 30 minute show come together before your eyes! Only 4 seasons in and I feel like this show can be the next "Friends". I will say the only thing that needs attention is the developing of all the characters, not just Sheldon and Leonard. We need more on Penny, Raj and Howard. But there isn't much to complain about!
You can not go wrong with the Emmy winner Jim Parsons! He is my absolute favorite! Sheldon Cooper FTW!
I came to this show late, but after catching up, I am hooked. Best viewed in a marathon, this show makes geeks... geeky... and that's a compliment. I also love the way it shows a different view on a group of guy friends. A good balance between discussing girls and ... well... everything else. And the best thing about this show, Sheldon! Hilarious, smart and strange. Jim Parsons is brilliant. I just wish they had episodes online! Since having to cut my cable (due to cost) I haven't been able to watch it :( I guess I will just have to wait for the DVD.
Very overrated show. I'm not going to lie, I watch The Big Bang Theory regularily. It's not that I don't like it, but it's extremely overrated. Be sure to remember that before assuming I hate it after reading my complaints. The thing I dislike most is that half the jokes on the show are very plain, and don't make any sense to the characters. These jokes are made to attract to a certain personality trait that the average adolescent (which is the show's target audience)will always have. For example, when Sheldon feels bad about breaking up with Amy, he buys many cats. This is just an exaggeration of what many people think they would do, and it's supposed to be funny. But it doesn't make any sense to the character. Sheldon would never get many cats. In a previous episode, Leaonard felt bad about Penny so he wanted a cat, and Sheldon was not enthusiastic about it whatsoever. Also, I've noticed many plot-holes throughout the show. In fact, in episode 3 Raj literally talks in the same room as Penny. Raj is well known for having a mental disorder which causes the inability to talk near women. But somehow the writers failed to notice this huge flaw. Also, Sheldon repeatedly corrects peoples' grammar. But on more than one occasion, I have noticed Sheldon make grammatical errors. For example, in one of the newer episodes, Sheldon says "here's your cat, and here's your 20 dollars". The correct verb is "here ARE your 20 dollars". The writers of the show should not be allowed to get away with a character that is supposed to be a genius who corrects people very often, but sometimes makes errors himself. Once again, I would like to remind you that it's not that I dislike the show, but I believe that it's VERY OVERRATED. I can't count the amount of times people have accused me of hating the show because I complain about flaws. Sure, if you're a person who doesn't care as much about this stuff and simply wants to watch the episode and laugh, then I'm not going to try to change your opinion, but I'm not like that. If your looking for a show that has very clever humor and virtually no flaws, I would suggest Arrested Development.
I think my summary says it all, but its just amazes me that so many people watch this uninspiring witless show. Put it this way without a laugh track I'm really not sure people would know when it is suppose to be funny. If you enjoy smart well-written comedies like Arrested Development, South Park, American Dad or It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia you will not like this show.
Its ironic but if you don't know what the big bang theory actually is chances are this show IS for you ;) Bottom Line: This show has done its part in bringing TV sitcoms back to the stone age from whence they came.
Although I understand the people that do not like the show, I really enjoy watching TBBT. You can either think this show pictures a wrong image of so-called nerd people, stigmatizing them as asocial victims, and also mocking the whole science / IT workers. Or you can think of it as a caricature which lead us to a reflexion upon society's dependence to the virtual world, like I do.
Of course, Jim Parsons (playing Sheldon's character) is the master piece of the whole show, as he represents the pure scientist with absolutely none social skills. His lines are cult. Leonard, Howard and Raj represent the social wannabee nerds that are always trying so hard to ger girls, but often end up being mocked. And of course, Penny is the hot blond girl who is uneducated and a failing actress, but who cares, she's hot and blond!
As I said, the tone is definitely ironic. If you want to watch the show, you have to be able not to take it seriously / personally.
