  • 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.

    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

    Probablemente la mejor temporada junto con la segunda. Tiene momentos memorables, como el capĂ­tulo 22, sin duda uno de los mejores capĂ­tulos de toda la serie. Expand

    The majority of this season is amazing. Anytime the show moves from the soapy drama stuff and into funny episode-contained escapades is when, in my opinion, the show is at it's best. All the episodes that focus more on the drama between Leonard and Penny than just the humorous fact that their relationship can exist just slow the show down, something that sadly becomes more apparent in season four, but I digress. Season three is an amazing season and the writers do a great job balancing the shows' need to have some seasonal arcs while keeping with the amazing single episode storylines Notable episodes: Sheldon's Graphene Problem, The Leonid Meteor Shower, Sheldon and Howard's feud over cricket genealogy, Raj's near deportation, Dr. Plimpton: the sluttiest physics doctorate ever, Mystic Warlords of Ka'a tournament Expand

    The break up is unnecessary and is predicted in the first few episodes. The cast remains the driving force, as the whole writing becomes cheesier and somewhat thin. I can still watch it and laugh though. It's a great comedy, but it's themes aren't that original Expand

    Through season 3 now and its looking like season 4 will be the same. The Big Bang Theory Season 3 8,2/10

    Have you liked The Big Bang Theory's previous seasons? If so you'll like this one as it really is just more of the same. It's still funny, and they added more characters that will hopefully expand upon in the next season. But there's no shaking the fact that it feels like the writers are afraid to take risks with this show. Still it's funny and if your a fan you'll still like it. Expand
