The Big Bang Theory - Funniest show on TV

What do you get when you have characters that are perfect for their rolls, have excellent facial gestures that bring about chuckles with just a look?  What do you have when there is a cast that is wickedly smart, but so naiive about the world and basic human relations?

You get The Big Bang Theory.  Sheldon, I personally feel, is one of the funniest on the cast, just due to his timing, presentation and his facial gestures.  If you are not watching the show and only listening to it, it just doesn't seem as funny.  But, when you are watching the movements and gestures, you cannot help but laugh at what they do.  Sheldon just doesn't get "life" or interaction with others.  He is super smart, and he is super arrogant about his intelligence.


The cast is an eclectic group of guys with one pretty gal and their interactions with each other is a riot.  The person that plays the experimental physicist Leonard, I believe was on the Roseanne show years ago as the young, dark haired boy.  I like his character a lot too, because he is one that has emotions like anyone else, a corny sense of humor but is super smart.  He tries so hard to fit in and the situations he finds himself it, are turned into a funny situation.  One show, he was trying to learn as much about football so he sounded like he understood the game so he could come to his girlfriends football party.  He was pointing out the most basic of moves (field goal after the touchdown will be 1 point if the kicker makes it, etc.) and he was making himself stand out more than if he had not said anything.

If you haven't given the show a chance, try it for 2 or 3 episodes.  I think you will find it humorous and you will find yourself chuckling, as you can probably think of someone from work or school that the characters remind you of and their actions towards one another just make you giggle.

Enjoy it, I know I do and you just might too!

The Most Brilliant Comedy Since Seinfeld!
When this show started out I thought it would not last beyond a season.  Four super-smart "geeky" guys who love to go to the comics store and love to quote Star Trek and debate philosophical issue regarding superheroes trying to connect with the unreachable hot blonde next door.  Well the writers of this  series keep coming up with new and hilarious new avenues for this show that never seems to get boring.      What is always constant among these characters …

Ah, the great ubiquitous television geek. You know what I'm talking about. Suspenders, pocket protectors, button-down shirts, squeaky or nasal voices, very proper English or no concept of contextual usage of slang, uber-smart, interests in computers or some form of high technology, fragile build. They were there usually to provide comic fodder and contrast for the show's cool characters. But as I got older and started to train a more critical eye toward these old shows and stereotypes, I spotted …

Without a doubt, The Big Bang Theory is one of the funniest comedies to hit television in a decade.  It's smart, witty, has plenty of heart, and rides the line of adsurdity with perfection.

One of the funniest comedies on television today. Big Bang Theory holds a particularly dear place in my heart because I am from the San Gabriel Valley and my comic book store is "their" comic book store (based off of) and the little references to local businesses is awesome.

It might take a couple of episodes (or maybe even half a season) to warm up to this show, but once you do, you realize its totally fantastic. The characters are interestingly plotted out, and the acting is hilarious. Nobody takes the cake more than Sheldon Cooper (the character.) You will love him!

this is one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. Sheldon cooper is such a great character and we have to love her cosmic geekiness.

Big Bang Theory Season 1 DVD Cover
"Frasier", arguably the greatest sitcom of all time and known widely as the most intelligent, sadly came to an end in 2004. Dedicated fans of the sitcom were sat wondering what to do next. Myself alike, we simply didn't know what to do with ourselves, we searched frantically for an equally intelligent sitcom alternative which simply didn't exist. Some of us suffered withdrawal symptoms and eventually got over them, while others simply withered away and died whilst huddling in a corner rocking back …
