Your inner nerd to be revealed...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Big Bang Theory Season 1-3 [DVD] (DVD)
"The Big Bang Theory" advanced from this small sitcom about two nerds to a primetime series with (as fasr as I know) 12 million viewers per average. And I think after watching the first two episodes, maybe the first three, you'll know why.
It's hard to describe this kind of comedy in one word. "Sitcom" fits the genre, but it doesn't describe what's REALLY going on there. Highly intelligent jokes, wordplays, brilliant actors in roles you'll buy right off. The acting is good (especially Jim Parsons.. oh my, saw some interviews and thought "he kind of IS Sheldon.")
Fast-flying jokes, verbal and non-verbal really are a huge factor of this series. The different characters, which you cannot even describe in few sentences... deep characters, everyone with their own story which is revealed step by step.
It's funny, yes, but it's funny on a highly intelligent level. Nothing against flat comedy, but THIS, this is just awesomely funny.
You don't have to be an expert when it comes to Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, Comic Books or World of Warcraft... you don't even have to know much about physics (I think you don't have to know anything at all... ;) ) to understand the jokes. But it's definitely funnier if you do.
And just expect your inner nerd to be revealed. I always thought I was "a bit nerdy" but hell no, I'm a huge nerd, as it seems.
So: Totally recommended! Watch it. Have a good laugh and much fun.
