This TV show here is the perfect example of how being a geek/nerd has evolved from being a negative label to something cool. Anyone who has seen Sheldon and Leonard in action will certainly agree with me that The Big Bang Theory is one of the funniest TV shows ever. Add Howard and Raj and Penny to the picture and you’ve got yourself a sitcom marathon.
The Big Bang Theory has gotten quite a following, prompting CBS to renew it for two more seasons. The second season has ended and this group of geeks made it big at the TCA (Television Critic’s Award).
I’m still not making sense to you?
Well, you really should watch the show. It’s basically about the lives of the four characters I mentioned in the first paragraph. They’re “scientists.” Leonard and Sheldon are Caltech prodigies who are roommates. Across the hall lives Penny, a hot blonde aspiring actress who currently works at The Cheesecake Factory while she waits for her big break. Howard is a Jewish engineer, the only one in the group who is not a “doctor.” He still lives with his mom, and is a total loser when it comes to girls. Raj is from India and is afflicted with muteness every time he is around women – that is, unless he is drunk.
Now it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out the general plot of the series! It is in the details where you will find the beauty of this show. Season 3 is coming up around the corner and I suggest that you take a look for yourself to see what I am talking about. Trust me, you just might be proud to be a geek yourself!
