Got me interested in physics!, 23 Jun 2013
Funny, intelligent and most importantly entertaining. Four male physicists find themselves in ridiculous situations as one of them is badly neurotic, one can't talk to attractive women without being drunk, and one fails every attempt of flirt. The only normal character Leonard falls desperately in love with a new neighbor which turns out to be one of the driving elements in the series.
The difference between The Big Bang Theory and other basic TV comedies is that beside humor based on sex life and blundering there is the scientific element. The way in which physics' theories are blended in the dialogs is fascinating and in me wakened a desire to start studying those theories. The series doesn't require a deep understanding of physics as in many of the jokes the idea is that the science is so complicated that you can't really understand how it was related to the topic.
The Big Bang Theory is certainly suitable for anyone interested in physics but also for people who find Two And A Half Men or Frasier funny. The leading characters are 25-35 years old so I assume that people around 20, 30 and 40 years will most relate to the characters and thus find it a good way of spending a rainy day.
