‘Big Bang Theory’ Explodes with Laughter

I’m a drama kind of girl.  Don’t get me wrong, they don’t all have to be serious.  I like comedy/dramas.  But I’m a fan of the hour long show.  In fact, I currently only watch one sitcom — How I Met Your Mother.  However, I’ve been on the lookout for a partner to round out my 8 o’clock hour on Mondays.  And I think I found it in The Big Bang Theory if the rest of the season is as funny as the pilot.

Big Bang TheoryI originally tuned in originally because of the vacant 1/2 hour hole in my TV schedule, but I’ll be returning next week for the laughs.

The concept is two very smart, nerdy guys — Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon (Jim Parsons) — meet their new pretty, but blond (insert joke here) neighbor, Penny (Kelly Cuoco).  Comedy ensues as the super smart, but socially inept duo and their friends interact with the Penny.

My favorite line from the pilot was when Penny asked Leonard and Sheldon what they do for fun around there and Sheldon, who had just returned from an aborted trip to a sperm bank to raise funds for a faster internet connect, replies with a straight face, “we were going to masturbate for money today.”

It’s not just the lines, it’s how they deliver them that’s so funny.

It’ll be interesting to see if The Big Bang Theory will be able to continue to bring in the laughter each week, but for now I’m hooked.  The show airs on Mondays at 8:30 p.m. on CBS.

    I really thought it was acted and written well. I had zero expectations for it, but I like you plan on inserting it into my weekly lineup. Good to see Johnny Galecki again.
