Great series. Very funny.

Sheldon looks like theat character from Galaxy Quest who is "avenged" by Alan Rickman.

If it has a decent run, Sheldon could easily be remembered as one of the great television characters.

I'm a fan one of the few TV shows I'll make an effort to watch.

Love this show. Howard can be annoying but Raj is funny and Penny is a great addition. As with most comedies, no one really likes the main star Leonard, but I think he's cool as well.

Looking forward to the 2nd series being shown here
I'd be happy to kill her, she called me a fish.

Wait, is this the Big Bang Theory that premiered last year, American sitcom about nerds? Are you all trying to tell me that it somehow went from "most painful pilot I've ever seen" to "hilarious" and "great"? I guess stranger things have happened; I'm just surprised is all. Damn, that pilot was all kinds of awful. It was almost so bad I ran right into the waiting arms of Cavemen. Almost.

I didn't see any of the first ones, but have enjoyed all the other ones I've seen - and that's almost all due to Sheldon.

I've missed a few this season due to DVR conflicts.

I think the characters have to grow on you. Plus the pilot was very slow.

One error I think they have made is getting Penny and Leonard together (although, bearing in mind s2 has yet to start over here, that may change soon).

I also rather enjoyed it, but mainly from a geeky scientist point of view.

Plus, as I'm not very good at physics I thought the show might teach me a thing or two. So far it has not.

I love Big Bang Theory. (should I have punctuated that with a comma? Discuss)

Sheldon is hilarious, the episode where they bought the HG Wells Time Machine was :banana:

Sheldon gets all the good writing. Personally, I find Howard repulsive, but comedically, I'd say he's the second best written character. Oh! And I kind of like Leslie Winkle's lines too... apart from her constant "dumbass" jokes.

F.N.G. is right though, this show does just kind of have to grow on you.

2nd series, and it seems that everyone knows it's all down to Sheldon as he is the most prominent one now. I still think is a funny show, better than most else that is out at the moment (2 1/2 men... just a wee bit repetitive... is there anything else out now?)

By Chuck Lorre? I don't think so.

Actually never realised both written by Chuck Lorre. But there are no other comedies out at the moment, apart from the genius that is the IT crowd.

SSP is very hit and miss, but I do fancy her.
and the US office not for me. I do like HIMYM but on UK tv it hasn't been on for ages. All I do is watch re-runs of Two Guys and a Gal
