If you are like most of the non-drooling general public, you are probably sick of boring, unfunny "comedic" drivel that litters the television schedule nowadays. You must be starving for entertainment that can not only be funny but actually :: gasp :: intelligent and that can follow in its former footsteps closely with continuity. Well, my friends, there is a solution. Grab a bowl of popcorn and pop in, (or turn on), The Big Bang Theory!

Jim Parsons stars as Sheldon and Johnny Galecki stars as Leonard, two physicists who live together in an updated version of the Odd Couple.

Sheldon is a neat freak with zero sense of humor who can never tell when someone is being sarcastic and very well may be asexual, since he has never had even a hint of attraction for someone that we have seen.

Leonard is the more down-to-Earth of the two and it is because of Leonard that friends Howard Wolowitz, (Simon Helberg), and Rajesh Koothrappali, (Kunal Nayyar), even bother to come over, since Sheldon is, at most times, almost intolerable, (but somehow quite enjoyable just the same).

Leonard is hopelessly head over heels for his and Sheldon's neighbor, Penny, (Kaley Cuoco), a personification of the "dumb blonde" stereotype who works at the Cheesecake Factory and serves as the "Rachel" to Leonard's "Ross", if this were a Friends scenario. Thankfully, save for one minor hook-up that went nowhere, the sexual tension between them still exists and we are now in season three.

Wolowitz is the lovable sleaze of the group. He has all the one-liners to try and get all the women he can get into bed with him.

Buying the two seasons of The Big Bang Theory separatly are cheaper then buying the set. Does Amazon think people aren't paying attention? This is such a bad year and yet Amazon keeps trying to get away with higher prices! This time it's against themselves!

In the cult tradition of SPARTACUS, the halls of every science department now echoes: "I AM SHELDON"!

Currently into its fourth season, THE BIG BANG THEORY proved to be one of the most funny TV sitcoms ever aired. I had not laughed out loud this hard ever since the best days of FRASIER and SEINFELD - and BIG BANG is **consistently** brilliant!

Sheldon Cooper is unavoidably the king of the show - the massive black hole this Universe revolves around if you will. A child prodigy, now a 24 years old theoretical physicist PhD with absolutely no social skills or known sexual drive. Sheldon may be on the verge of unifying the fields but cannot drive a car to save his life or break a smile even remotely resembling that of a mere homo sapiens.

Leonard Hofstadter is Sheldon's roommate and primary ...keeper. An experimental physicist himself, he juggles Sheldon's idiosyncrasies with his personal neurosis - not to mention his crush on his neighbor Penny. Which crush, like lunar eclipses, follow a predicted yet unavoidable periodicity.

Howard Wolowitz is the only one with no PhD yet (and Sheldon never lets him forget it). An electrical engineer whose crowning achievement is a mechanized arm that is used in the space shuttle (and is now working on its liquid waste management solutions). He also managed to wreck the Mars rover in hopes of landing a girl - but he made sure no one can prove anything.
The fact that he is a short man with a severely outdated and misguided sense of fashion, still lives with his mother, insists on using a collection of pickup lines straight from men's magazines advice columns - and yet carries himself as God's gift to women is just hilarious.
Now, if only he could find a practical use for that mechanized arm...

These days, television has been infested with a horrifying pandemic known as "reality" TV. I was beginning to think that the life-escaping, classic (non-animated)sitcom we all grew up watching was soon to become extinct. Thanks to the brilliant minds of Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, the heart of the classic American sitcom is still beating strong. With each episode, it becomes more evident that this is one of those rare, magical casts that will live on long after the show has ended, which I am hoping is not any time soon. While I have been a fan of Johnny Galecki since he portrayed the most endearing 'Rusty' in the "Vacation" series and 'David' in "Rosanne", and I was fond of Kaley Cuoco in "8 Simple Rules"; I would like to sincerely thank whoever was responsible for casting Jim Parsons as Sheldon. Jim Parsons is absolutely, positively brilliant in every episode. It requires not only great writers, but also an extraordinary actor to bring to life such a complex character and have him capture the heart of so many viewers. If not for this magical combination, Sheldon could have easily become as irritating as Steve Urkel instead of the ultimately lovable and charming character he has become. Jim Parsons is one of those truly gifted talents that has been waiting in the wings as an understudy for too long, the epitome of the American Dream.

The Big Bang Theory is one of the funniest, best written, and best performed sitcoms in recent years. If you haven't watched this show, you should.
