Big Bang Theory

Show Premise: 

The show is centered on five people living in Pasadena, California: roommates Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper, both physicists; Penny, a waitress and aspiring actress who lives across the hall; mechanical engineer Howard Wolowitz and astrophysicist Raj Koothrappali. The geekiness and intellect of the four guys is contrasted for comic effect with Penny's social skills and common sense.

Over time, supporting characters have been promoted to starring roles: Leslie Winkle, a physicist colleague at Caltech and, at different times, a lover of both Leonard and Howard; Bernadette Rostenkowski, Howard's girlfriend (later his wife), a microbiologist and former part-time waitress alongside Penny; neuroscientist Amy Farrah Fowler, who joins the group after being matched to Sheldon on a dating website (and later becomes Sheldon's girlfriend), and Stuart Bloom, the cash-strapped owner of the comic book store the characters often visit.

Production History: 

The Big Bang Theory premiered on CBS on September 24, 2007. It's now in its seventh season which premiered on September 26, 2013.

I love the show and have watched it since the beginning but recently I have noticed that in too many an episode I see the gang go inside their refrigerators and pull out a plastic bottle of water to drink from when they could quite easily fill up a glass from a filtered jug or a tap. By 2025 it is estimated that for every 1 tonne of fish there will be 3 tonnes of plastic in our oceans. The USA are particularly bad with their wasteful plastic products and I just feel like the show should use its platform to reduce its plastic waste and promote making cautious decisions to protect the planet.

I think Amy's mother must have named her after Farrah Fawcett. Don't you think there's a wry twist to that? Let's meet Amy's mother and get her story...
