In the cult tradition of Spartacus, the halls of every science department now echoes: "I AM SHELDON"!

Currently into its sixth season, The Big Bang Theory proved to be one of the most funny TV sitcoms ever aired. Even if the show seems to have slowed down form its initial explosive impetus, I had not laughed out loud this hard ever since the best days of Frasier and Seinfeld - and Big Bang Theory is consistently brilliant!

Sheldon Cooper is unavoidably the king of the show - the massive black hole this Universe revolves around if you will. A child prodigy, now a 24 years old theoretical physicist PhD with absolutely no social skills or known sexual drive. Sheldon may be on the verge of unifying the fields but cannot drive a car to save his life or break a smile even remotely resembling that of a mere homo sapiens.

His equally super-intelligent (yet sexually confused at times girlfriend), Amy Farrah Fowler, received a far more enlarged role since the fifth season. However, she was not a very good addition and she unbalances the show. Her character only manages to blur the focus form Sheldon (there is only room for one idiosyncratic genius!), diffuse a number of comically charged situations and gum up the show's flow.

Leonard Hofstadter is Sheldon's roommate and primary ...keeper. An experimental physicist himself (who Sheldon tries to "help" by steering him towards a teaching career), he juggles Sheldon's idiosyncrasies with his personal neurosis - not to mention his crush on his neighbor Penny. Which crush, like lunar eclipses, follow a predicted yet unavoidable periodicity.

Leonard tried his hand in a long-distance relationship with his friend Raj's sister, Priya, but he seems to be gravitating back towards Penny once more.

What do you get when you take a bunch of wonderfully observed geekily sympathetic characters, a bitingly ascerbic, hilarious and literate script and a bravery 'to go boldly' in the best traditions of Mr Spock? 'The Big Bang Theory' of course. What makes this comedy stand out is the consistently high standard of the scripts, the clever evolution of the characters and the ability to make the audience cringe and smile supportingly at the same time without ever losing affection for Sheldon. Howard, et al. The best comedy relies on acute observation and a relationship with the characters that laughs with them and not at them. We laugh because we care that Howard finally bags his dream girl, that Raj may just learn to speak to a girl without being soaked in alcohol or that Sheldon will indeed one day decide to join the human race and learn to interact with other humans. Add moments of comic genius like the comic book store, Sheldon's inability to knock on a door once and Wolowitz's mother and you have the real deal. Oh, and it has to have the wittiest and most abiding theme tune of any comedy since 'Cheers'. Enough said.

Right, The Big Bang Theory consists of five really good season of Television Comedy. It started out about a set of "geeks and nerds" who struggle to fit in with the conventional way of life, resulting in the group being placed in outstandingly funny social situations and because of this the first 2/3 seasons of this show are extremely good, the characters and the writing for the characters is world class. However where this show really excelled was in the acting ability of its lea,. Jim Parsons' portrayal of Sheldon Cooper is nothing short of outstanding, possibly one of the greatest performances in a Sitcom ever.
Why did I only mention the first 2/3 seasons as being this good? well the truth is the show does decline ever so slightly in the later seasons. This is due to a few different reasons, namely the addition of characters like Amy, Bernadette, Priya and a subsequent shift in focus from Science, Sci Fi and Comic Books to the social development of the main characters. I must maintain that although the show does decline it is still very very VERY good. The show needed the change in direction to keep it fresh and up to date and I think it works, I know some people will inevitably disagree (while I write this no other reviews have been posted)
Through all of the changes the one extraordinary constant is the exceptional acting of Parsons, which ensures that the show is top drawer and well worth buying and watching over and over again.

My wife and I stumbled across this while zapping channels and soon got hooked, so much so that we treated ourselves to this set of the first five series. The series revolves around a group of young science graduates doing doctoral and post doctoral work at a US university, who spend their spare time watching sci-fi films and tv series, playing role-playing games and collecting super-hero comics. The series revolves around Sheldon who lacks pretty much every social skill and his flat mate and "keeper", Leonard. As a counterpoint to all these science nerds another major character in the series is Penny, Sheldon's and Leonard's neighbour, who is a lowly waitress/wannabe actress.
Much of the humour inevitably springs from Sheldon's ineptitude in human relationships but the other actors also contribute to the show. I would imagine that the show is aimed at the younger generation but my wife and I are fast approaching 60 and we've really enjoyed it. Perhaps this is in part due to the fact that we have three grown up sons (one of whom is currently doing a PhD in aerospace engineering), who at one time were into role playing games and even now go to see most of the newly released fantasy/sci-fi/super-hero movies, play all the latest releases on Xbox (Halo, etc.) and buy countless T-shirts related to these various interests.
Interestingly we've tried watching the latest series on tv and not enjoyed it. I think it benefits from watching episodes in quick succession so that you get a bit of momentum.
