The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory

.

This is personally one of my favourites, if im ever sideways on the couch hibernating in a duvet and coping w the hangover and general delicateness of the morning after (or afternoon) big bang never disappoints – it just hits the spot, easy watching, witty and comforting .

Rating : 8/10

We’ll start with Penny, a Nebraska-born semi alcoholic with a proclivity to live beyond her means, actress and waitress at the Cheesecake Factory .

.

Then we have Sheldon Cooper – a brilliant genius Physicist studying String Theory (who’s character was loosely based on Sherlock Holmes), has autistic qualities & adores Star Trek .

.

& who also has some intense thoughts on how the world should or could be run as his tolerance for stupidity is quite low .

Next we have his roommate Leonard, who spends far too much of his time taking care of his highly eccentric aforementioned roomie .

.

Then we have their friends Howard and Raj – who have an increasingly peculiar pseudo-homosexual relationship .

The Big Bang Theory actually made history when CBS made a mega three-season pact with Warner Bros – getting a two year renewal is incredibly rare let alone three!

Were very happy campers .

.

penny sheldon oh yes

.

so many brilliant episodes – they actually filmed a pilot with a different “Penny” in mind – Sheldon n Leonard were in it – and penny was a promiscuous young gal who was a lot less intelligent and endearing . not surprisingly that went nowhere – then Kaley Cuoco was chosen and the big bang theory was made

Back to the plot – We’ve got some dramatic statements .

.

The Big Bang Theory

.

Some laughs, the first three seasons are written a little more eloquently than the later ones. Series 1-3 is more satirical and intellectually witty, if you check this out it has the power to surprise you as its not the ‘sitcom’ that its been branded. it has some legitimate out loud chuckle and damn intelligent witticisms – the humour and writing evolves slowely (as all shows tend to) but the wit stays sharp

.

.

We’ve got some glorious references to other fictional worlds – there are constant discussions of Shows, Movies, Video Games, Board Games, Cosplay, Comic Books + cosplay. this show is a nerdy-girls dream, wrapped up with a little bow on top

many many weekends w the question – star wars movies? video games? Board games? – the answer of course :

.

sheldon yes to all

.

Some sage feminine advice, the show actually explores a stronger theme of feminism than you’d expect in a show of its structure. But there’s heavy emphasis on a lot more theoretical frameworks than you’d anticipate, we see some neurological experiments, behaviour analysis and some heavy psychological examinations from some characters that embody the phrase ‘a stereotype of a stereotype’ along with dealings of racism and crippling social anxieties, all with a damn witty lense

We’ve some dancing, cause, well its Kaley Cuoco looking fly in a shirt

.

So sit down and enjoy, you watch the characters each dealing with their own personal Hamartia and adapt and grow in 10 seasons of this easy watch, sunday- afternoon or anytime hangover show
