No, I’m not talking about earth sciences. I’m actually talking about a comedy show that airs every Thursday at 8/7 central on CBS. The Big Bang Theory is a 30 minute scripted comedy guaranteed to keep you laughing. The show follows four physicists who live in an urban apartment. When one scientist, Leonard, falls in love with a girl from across the hall, Penny, many more opportunities open up for the young physicists. The show follows the group on their many misadventures as Leonard and Penny’s relationship grows closer.
I personally love following this show as it never fails to keep me thoroughly entertained. If you cannot catch The Big Bang Theory on CBS, you can always watch full episodes with very limited commercials on the CBS website at this link here… http://www.cbs.com/shows/big_bang_theory/. This is extremely convenient to me as a college student, because goodness knows when I will actually have time to sit down and watch a television show. However, I can assure you it would not be every Thursday at 8:00. So, I very much appreciate the readiness of full episodes located right on the CBS website.
Another aspect of this show I find particularly interesting is that one cast member, Kunal Nayyar live tweets every east coast airing of the show. I find that the show is really trying to incorporate more social media into its episodes. This fits really well with the genre of the show as well since science and technology are a consistent topic. So, in a nutshell, you have interesting characters, intellectual comedy, and social media interactivity. What more could you ask for? In my opinion, this is definitely a show worth checking out.
