Predictably unpredictable

by Buzzy S on 12/9/2010

At first blush I was expecting a show that was rife with site gags and one-liners. And, while, to an extent it is, it is not at all predictable. The characters are about as far out of left field as they get. Even the premise of the show seems absurd and the characters don't disappoint. Sheldon, by far, steals the show, but each character brings the supporting ingredients that help bring his character to life. Sit back and just let the silliness engulf you. It's escapism at it oddest and funniest

Favorite show on TV

by Tim on 1/2/2011

I love this show because it makes you pay attention and listen if you want to "get" all of the humor. Now I have the 1st and 2nd seasons all without the commercials. Thanks

Product Overview

Physicists Leonard and Sheldon understand everything from the inescapable gravitational pull of a black hole to the intricate structure of the atom. But take those atoms and assemble them into a woman, and their comprehension comes to a grinding halt. And when Penny, a woman with all those atoms in all the right places, moves in across the hall, Leonard and Sheldon's universe begins to expand in ways they never could have imagined.

When series creators Chuck Lorre (Two and a Half Men) and Bill Prady (Dharma & Greg) combine equal parts science, superheroes and sex and add stars Johnny Galecki (Roseanne), Jim Parsons (Judging Amy), and Kaley Cuoco (8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter) the result is an explosively funny comedy for the nerd in all of us.

This three disc collection includes all 17 episodes from The Complete First Season of The Big Bang Theory!

ReviewSource Variety
Review "The Big Bang Theory" doesn't conjure up many big laughs, but its colliding elements do generate enough little ones to become another promising addition to CBS' Monday sitcom lineup. Less "Revenge of the Nerds" than a grown-up "Malcolm in the Middle," the series boasts appealing leads in Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons and actually builds jokes around the notion of being smart, albeit socially backward. Although CBS hasn't set the world ablaze ratings-wise Mondays beyond "Two and a Half Men," this "Two Men and a Hottie" should fit right in with the more middling successes in that four-stack...As with "Men," which also comes from producer Chuck Lorre, the premise here is hardly bone-rattling: Two big-brained science types share an apartment, only to have their pristine little world of chalkboards and quantum particles thrown into a tizzy when an attractive blond waitress named Penny ("8 Simple Rules'" Kaley Cuoco) moves in across the hall...It's hard not to root for a sitcom that employs a "science consultant" and whose heroes are named Sheldon (Parsons) and Leonard (Galecki), who watch the "Battlestar Galactica" DVD commentary, play "Klingon Boggle" and talk bluntly about "masturbating for money," having just visited a sperm bank for high-IQ donors...For newly single Penny, it's like taking up residence next to "those 'Beautiful Mind' genius guys." Leonard is instantly smitten, whereas Sheldon -- a glass-half-empty type if there ever was one -- can't see a potential relationship ending any way but badly, were one to happen at all...As with "How I Met Your Mother," "Big Bang" consciously populates its cast with younger characters, presumably the better to hit the lower half of the 18-49 demo, as CBS gradually tries to "youthify" its profile...That sounds logical in theory (especially since "Dancing With the Stars" has tango-ed off with part of the older audience), but TV development traditionally adheres to a simpler equation -- the one that states while elaborate formulas look good on paper, sitcom survival generally boils down to the basics of execution.
