  • 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.

    Sheldon just gets better!!! They all do including Leslie Winkle who should be in it more. But hey the season is so much better than the first, not to say the first was no good. Must Watch! Expand

    Perfect chemistry between the main characters, with Sheldon's quirkiness, Leonard's urge for love, Howard's flirtatiousness, Raj's awkwardness, and Penny's extroversion. Perfect for all audiences, this show will undoubtedly break you into fits of laughter. Expand

    Now we have gotten deeper into the sitcoms characters they have introduces a few guest stars which they have done brilliantly and effectively. Sheldon makes the programme, Jim Parsons is an amazing actor. Expand

    Still awesome just like season 1. It's hilarious, maybe even funnier than the first season as I believe I laughed out loud more, and the characters are just as great. The only complaint I have is that it's a little to much like season 1, they don't expand on the characters personalities or make any changes. It feels like their to afraid to experiment with their show as to make sure they don't lose any fans, and there's nothing really wrong with that, I still had a blast and fans of the first season will still enjoy, it's just a little disappointing. Still if you enjoyed season 1 you'll enjoy this one. Expand

    Honestly, people, THIS is the highest rated comedy on TV?? The jokes are flat and the added laugh track just enunciates that. The 'references' are so terrible and incorrect that it could be satire. Factually, this show is Fox News. Expand
