The Big Bang Theory

‘The Big Bang Theory’ – an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre is an excellent show and perhaps the very best of comedies currently on television. The writing and the subsequent plots  in particular are quite impressive, pitching scientific theories and literal annotations to the major part of non-scientific community, highlighting humor in such obvious manner. Also, one’s got to love the vanity cards of Chuck Lorre at the end of the show, better pause and read it. They are simply awesome, smart and humorous. The irony is bewitching. Further, visiting his site made it quite clear as to why the character Sheldon is so superb, only Chuck with his detailed insight and clever mindset could have pulled it off, not that Jim Parsons did any less of a job.

The show deals with daily acts of four friends and their neighbor Penny, a waitress, aspiring to be an actress. It is a total package of wit, humor, romance, stupidity, understanding and friendship (3 strikes huh!).

You cannot miss it for all you get.

The genius of Sheldon who is a  total package of knowledge but no wisdom, far far away from the social incumbency. It is quite hilarious when he cannot catch sarcasm, and the practical pranks he plays. You are gonna love the occasional faces, and who could forget the room agreement.

The understanding and innocence of Leonard. The guy does well to put up with a room mate who is undoubtedly the biggest freak show, and is essentially the glue that binds them all together.

The subtle remarks of Howard. The one I like most is in reference to Penny – See a penny, pick her up and all the day you will have good luck. Great bond with mother he got there, although mother has never been seen.

The common sense of Penny and definitely the only sex appeal in the series. The only cherry to the otherwise not so delicious pastry. She indeed presses onto the obvious, that even thought the show might circumvent around geeks but in itself is understandable and fun.

And of course Rajesh. What can I say, I adore him, not just because he brings a lot of Indian spice to table but also because of the precious words that fade away in presence of a gal.

The series would go on and so it must. Great television series, definitely the best of its kind. It does not fail to surprise. And the characters, pack enough in their arsenal to roast my head off. A must see!
