The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory

the big bang theory
 
EW says: This one brings out our inner geek- it’s funny and geeky- oh and Blossom is in it too! Took us a while to figure that one out!
 
Leonard and Sheldon are brilliant physicists, the kind of "beautiful minds" that understand how the universe works. But none of that genius helps them interact with people, especially women. All this begins to change when a free-spirited beauty named Penny moves in next door.
 
Sheldon, Leonard's roommate, is quite content spending his nights playing Klingon Boggle with their socially dysfunctional friends, fellow CalTech scientists Wolowitz and Koothrappali. However, Leonard sees in Penny a whole new universe of possibilities... including love.
 
The four main male characters are all avid sci-fi, fantasy, and comic book fans and memorabilia collectors.
 
Star Trek in particular is frequently referenced and Sheldon identifies strongly with the character of Spock; when he is given a used napkin signed by Leonard Nimoy as a Christmas gift from Penny he is almost overwhelmed with excitement and gratitude ("I possess the DNA of Leonard Nimoy?!"). All four characters can speak Klingon to varying degrees.
 
Wednesday night is the group's designated "comic book store night", the store in question being run by fellow geek and recurring character Stuart. On a number of occasions, the group have dressed up as pop culture characters, including The Flash, Aquaman, Frodo Baggins, Superman, Batman, the Fourth Doctor, Spock, Green Lantern, and Thor.
