"The Big Bang Theory" – Guest Review

In On Film on July 1, 2009 at 2:58 am

Here at The HomeWorld, we’re always looking to expand our content, and that includes guest articles.  We already solicited one from Tarv in his Star Trek review, and now we’re doing it again.  This one is from Ben Wilson, a young artist who writes and draws Greg and Gary Comics, and he’s sent us this review of CBS sitcom, The Big Bang Theory.  Hit the jump to see what he’s got to say!

big_bang_theoryThe Big Bang Theory is written by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady. Chuck Lorre is a co-creator of the TV show Two And A Half Man and that kind of humor shows in both TV shows. The only difference I see in the humor between those two shows is the premise that the individual shows are set in.

The Big Bang Theory is based on two guys, Sheldon Cooper and Leonard Hofstadter, who are scientists and nerds with no social life at all, having an attractive 24 year old girl, Penny, moves in across the hall from their apartment. Sheldon, Leonard and their two nerd/science friends Rajesh Koothrappali and Howard Wolowitz don’t know how to handle talking to this girl in their nerdy anti-social way.

The Big Bang Theory may have that dried up sitcom humor through it that, if you watch Two And A Half Men, you’d be pretty used to it. It has some fun jokes about science, nerdism and that kind of culture. There are also some relationship parts to it which again, reminds me of the show Two And A Half Men but the relationships are written well through the series.

Science and nerd lovers will enjoy this show with the characters always using equations and “exact probabilities” to solve or find the outcome to a problem. Sometimes that even gets on Penny’s nerves.

Fun for all to watch (though kids may not get the sex jokes) The Big Bang Theory is a funny and enjoyable show that would be good to pick up if you ever come by it at the video store.

Ben Wilson is the creator of Greg and Gary Comics!

  1. Love this show and the geek related jokes. Plus there is Penny…well…just look at her!

    She manages to be funny also.

    • Oh, definitely. Kaley Cuoco is certainly easy on the eyes.

      I only saw one episode of Big Bang Theory myself, but they made a joke about The Flash that I laughed at, so its a good show ^_^

  2. They seem to make comic book related jokes every episode.
