Watchseries; There aren't many shows that you can watch over and over and still laugh, but this is one of them. Every actor plays their character to perfection, and the writing is great. I will be really sad when it ends. I just hope Netflix picks it up so I can binge watch start to finish.

The Big Bang Theory watchseries. I have seen a few episodes of the new CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory and to me it's one of the best written sitcoms currently on network TV. The scripts are filled with scientific references some people might not understand but they are very witty. Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons are definitely one of TV's newest comedy teams who have great chemistry and the addition of Kaley Cuoco as their neighbor, Penny brightens up the show. Let's not overlook the supporting cast with Simon Helberg as Wolowitz, who looks a little like Paul Reubens, the man behind Pee-Wee Herman and Kunal Nayyar as their friend from India.
If you watch the closing credits closely, you'll notice that there's a credit saying "Science Consultant." It's the first sitcom to employ one. It was a very good idea by the show's creator Chuck Lorre, who also is behind the CBS hit Two and a Half Men to hire one to bring scientific honesty into the show.
I hope The Big Bang Theory is around for several years. It has a solid future.
Wow.. from my absolute favorite, this show has slowly turned into a sad, sad sight.. I get it: you can write only so many nerd jokes, and you can keep the show funny only for so long, but will you guys please put the BBT out of its misery already?
First three or four seasons: Solid gold; funny, good plot lines. The last couple of seasons: weak, thin stories. Writers are definitely showing every sign of fatigue.
This is turning into less-funny Friends with a slight nerdy slant. Please end this with whatever dignity there is left, and don't let it deteriorate any further.
I found the show to be very funny. The laugh track needs to go though. I was afraid that the girl would be portrayed as a really stereotypical dumb blonde. I was glad to see that she is not. Granted she isn't a nerd genius like the rest of the characters, but she is just your average person. There is a lot of subtle humor mixed in with the obvious jokes. Good show and I hope it lasts as there are very few comedies on Television now that can actually make me laugh.
Before 100 people insult my taste, humor is subjective. If you can identify with the subject matter, it is funny to you. If you can't, it isn't. Having worked in Information Technology for over 25 years, I can see a lot of myself and my friends in Sheldon and Leonard.
By the way, if you are my age, you may get the nod to one of the greats of TV comedy in the lead characters first names.
This show was pure gold at first when it was just penny and the boys: when Sheldon was never open to the possibility of a relationship because of his social awkwardness and inability to understand people, when Raj couldn't speak with a girl around, and a hot girl moves in. It was genius and hilarious. The introduction of Bernadette and Amy ruined this show. Their characters are awful and intensely annoying and unfunny. Their introduction also ruined other character's story lines. Sheldon never would've ended up dating a girl the way they wrote him in with Amy. Howard was perfect when he was the overly horny nerd, and him marrying and settling down with Bernadette ruined his character. They couldn't figure out how to keep Raj the silent character so they made him talk to girls and even date as well. Which was pathetic writing. Making Penny fit in with all of them ended up removing the hot, dumb blonde girl around nerds effect that made the show great to begin with. Now, Penny doesn't stand out as the hot girl against the nerds because they stopped writing her like that and just made it more like Friends instead of the clashing personalities dynamic that made this show good.
I miss the show when it was about nerdy men nerding over science experiments and awkward women encounters. It then after about five seasons turned into a 'Please the Wife- Soap Opera'.
I hate Bernadette's character and how much she belittles Howard like a strict mother, constantly telling him what to do and making him a puppet to fill her needs. Howard has always been a funny character but being in that relationship made his humour all caged.
Sheldon reminded me of Spock, an awkward intellect who's spot-on logic and obsessive compulsive disorder made it an inspiration even at the weirdest of moments. Although throughout the series you notice Sheldon starts to slowly lose his Sheldon'ness and starts to become more human in a sense. Which made it slightly displeasing to what we loved Sheldon for in the first place.
Penny being the stereotypical sex driven blonde was ok, her beauty made the boys more awkward like nerds would be. Sheldon's intelligence overpowering hers is what also made it funny for social awkardness, him constantly correcting her and her replying sarcasticly showed the difference between the two. Her and Leonard's relationship was not a problem, but when they all had relationships, it became an occurring thing to have at least one relationship problem in an episode and it made the viewing cringy.
The show still has a decent episode everynow and then but it's not as funny as the first few seasons.
