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...

Hello Dr Cooper,
Hope you are doing great, my mail is regarding to finally add a new member to friend list and a stoner would be the perfect match, as he could be very much able to understand your working on string theory and might also help you to enter in different dimensions as you always desired. I might be able to help you as recommend a perfect stoner; me, who is also an engineer, I know I know not a deal as compared to a physicist. I will let you consider my application and look forward to hear.

Hello again Dr Cooper
I thought if we will be friends we might need a friendship agreement to make sure everything works in order, I have prepared an agreement if you will be kind enough to provide me your mail if I will forward it to you.

for years now i have been watching the big bang theory and it has become (not to sound cringy) a part of my life. I am not known for my patience and now everyday when i wake up i check my laptop for new big bang episodes. I do the same thing after school and before bed. Please make more episodes because you are killing me here

A fun episode would be the mothers (Leonard & Sheldons) vying for the 'attention' of the 1 Mississippi doctor (Billy Bob Thornton)....just a suggestion

Was watching reruns amd realized in the very first episode, Penny stated she was from Utah. Now she's from Nebraska. Someone made a mistake. So which is she from?

Episode 99 of the New Yorker involves Mr Lang and I thing it could provide many ideas for episodes of TBBT. The girls could take up the hobby, guys discover Langs former profession, options for using origami in today's world

I am currently watching episode 15 of series 8 and sheldon folded a top all wrong. As he folded the sleeves in first and then the bottom and then the neck part. When it should be the sleeves folded in, then the sides a little bit and then the neck to the bottom. Please teach sheldon how to fold clothes properly as this really frustrated me

Your show is the only TV show that my wife and I have to watch! I can't remember if Sheldon's dad has ever played a part in the show. If not may I suggest that the host of America's Test Kitchen, Christopher Kimball would make the perfect person for the part. Every time I see him with his mannerisms and looks I always see Sheldon. Watch him and see.
