Does Anyone Else Watch The Big Bang Theory On CBS?

Thu Nov 20, 2008 6:56 am

I know this is a show on in the United States so my apologies for starting a thread that only deals with one country but it seems when I ask around that no one has heard of this show. I caught it once a few months ago and set my dvr to record the series. My wife asked me today if I was ever going to watch the growing backlog which I must admit I had forgotten about. I have spent the past few hours posting while LMAO. The writers and actors on this show are hillarious. Just wondering if I was an audience of one.

I was intrigued by the previews before the show premiered, and I watched the first show. I liked it, so I have watched every episode since. It's a very funny sitcom (I actually record that show, How I Met Your Mother, and Two and a Half Men every Monday) and I relate with the characters better than I can on most sitcoms. I haven't checked to see how ratings are for it, but I hope this show lasts awhile, it's done right.

So America is actually learning about the Big Bang, what's next. America learning about Evolution?

AHHHH... they'll get educated... *scared*

we have it here in the UK too on E4 (along with most other US shows). Series two started last night. I have to say i'm a big fan, and can definately relate to it, and know a few people who are a bit like some of the characters in that show.

As Nighthawk says, it's on here and I have to say that I'm hooked. However... that might be more to do with the presence of Kaley Cuoco than the quality of the show.  Smile

The TV in the hotel didn't have that channel. Told you it was run by Scandanavians! Well good. Yep, I think there is a character in the show that most everyone can relate too. You'll love the up coming episode where Penny gets hooked on online gaming.

I watch it and I think it's hilarious. It's definitely got a more "educated" humor at times. Especially for anyone who did a science major in college.

Its funny as hell. Same writers as Two and a Half Men.

Leonard and Sheldon (homage to a great comedy writer) are well balanced geeks, and Penny is hotter than anyone deserves while being cool about it. Kuprathali and Howard are excellent complementary characters with their own depths and stories.

Well played puns galore, and accurate comic book character references.


Its on my weekly tivo list and my wife and I actually sing the song together during the opening credits. Barenaked Ladies is always a good choice.

It's simply a funny show. Sometimes I can't stop laughing. My favourite character is Sheldon.

I enjoy the show and guess what!?...it's on in Canada as well!!  Wink

I've just started watching Two and a Half men. My parents recommended it to me. My dad also loves Sheen's shirts. Does anybody have any info on his shirts?. I heard they are by a specific maker and can be bought by the general public.

Leonard and Sheldon

Yeah I picked up on that right away. The writers are very good and this show is in line with "Friends" as showing what a good cast and a good writing crew can accomplish together.

I hate to be a drag and I don't want this to turn into a "would you' thread, I think she's cute, but hot? Summer Glau from the Sarah Connor Chronicles, now that's hot. Want to make your first billion? Produce that robot minus the terminator mode!  wink

I guess I'm learning that American TV is much more prevelant than many hotel rooms in foreign countries let on!  rotfl 

I'm also glad to find out that I'm not an audience of one.

A quick search yielded this website: http://www.charlieharpershirts.com/home.html. They do look a lot like Tommy Bahama or Nat Nast shirts, and I don't know if this website is a ghost seller for them.

Eh, she may not be the best on TV, but I don't think I would be saying no to her!

I think you're allowed to pick more than one.

I was first taken by her dumb blonde act in 8 Simple Rules - she did it very well. She's a bit smarter in the Big Bang Theory, funnily enough.  Smile
