Since the get-go, my husband son and I have not missed an episode. Every Thursday I set the DVR so we can "Big-Bang-alize." This means throwing in a pizza, settling down in the living room and letting Penny....Penny....Penny....rip. Jim Parsons has got to be one of the most talented comedians around. But he would be lost without the chemistry between him and Leonard, throw in Raj and Howard, and then the slowly increasing female population, well, it's ridiculously funny. Amy, Bernadette, Penny...heck...ANY of these characters could have turned out to be cliche'. Happily, the writing talent matches the acting talent.
I remember when I first heard of this show before the pilot it was billed as "two nerds get the pretty girl." Ah what a disservice that advertising was!!
We watch each new episode repeatedly, I buy every DVD set that comes out, and then we Big-Bang-alize in marathon sessions off-season.
Don't stop at Season 5. You must MUST get all seasons!
