The series

The show exploits the "nerds can't have sex topic", which totally makes sense, since in the 2000's casual sex is so uncanny.

The main plot involves the love interest of Leonard in Penny and apparently we care how their relationship develops.

As for comedy, the main recurring element is the contrast between the nerds intellect and behavior with Penny's social life (Which is so hilarious it never gets old[citation needed]) .

Around episode 4 Leonard starts being a regular guy having no problem in talking with Penny whatsoever, Leaving the 70% of the time to Sheldon.

Sheldon and Leonard's life together shows the common issues of roommates, being woke up in the middle of the night to answer social behavior inquiries, dealing with super specific food requirements, making a girlfriend uncomfortable with private interrogations, etc. Basically like having a 27 years old child that reminds you of your mother for wife.

At the middle of the first season Leonard dumps a girlfriend in a apparently healthy relationship for the unacceptable decision of moving some stuff into his house.

On the other side we have Sheldon's eccentricities facing everyday issues with hilarious scientific statements. Wolowitz unsuccessfully trying to get laid with any carbon-based life form (Yes, the show makes you smarter) and Koothrappali seldom getting drunk. Penny also walks around in little to no clothes.


Oh, and they eat asian food 7 out of 10 dinner scenes.

Episodes

Every episode of the series presents a different situation, from scientific conferences to Penny's weekly new boyfriend and everything in the middle, like a Korean child prodigy threatening Sheldon's career, Leonard ocasionally getting laid, Wolowitz mother attending the phone and Penny's weekly new boyfriend.

So far the series has 3 seasons on which *SPOILER ALERT* nothing really critical has happened except maybe for Leonard and Penny making out or having sex and Sheldon getting sick.
By the third season, Leonard starts dating Penny leaving them with less screen time than Wolowitz and Koothrappali.

Things to do at home:

  • Take the following paragraph:

"Our whole universe was in a hot dense state,
Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started. Wait...
The Earth began to cool,
The autotrophs began to drool,
Neanderthals developed tools,
We built a wall (we built the pyramids),
Math, science, history, unravelling the mystery,
That all started with the big bang! BANG!"
