Review: The Big Bang Theory – Season 1

If StuffWeLike.com were a sitcom, it would be The Big Bang Theory, the endearing comedy about hopelessly nerdy physicists who pretty much like everything that we like.

Johnny Galecki’s Leonard is the emotional center of the show. When Penny (Kaley Cuoco), an attractive young woman, moves into the apartment across the hall, Leonard is instantly smitten. His pursuit of the girl of his dreams forms the spine of the first season.

But the breakout star of the show is Jim Parsons as Sheldon, a hopelessly neurotic genius with a boundless ego and absolutely no social skills. Every episode offers the writers another chance to explore the character’s eccentricities to delightful comedic effect.

Each script also contains dozens of funny and knowing references to geek chic. From the Lord of the Rings to The Time Machine to The Flash and everything in between, these characters all live and breathe in the world we love. But we don’t have as many problems getting women. Honest.
