The Bing Bang Theory: lessons in life

“Bazinga!” My favorite Sheldon word, and yes, I am a fan of The Big Bang Theory. I like how Penny is the perfect foil to Sheldon’s character. The show I watched on Thursday, April 25th focused on passion vs. obsession, and did so brilliantly. Having Amy use behavioral therapy on Sheldon only to have Sheldon patiently wait for her to leave in order to complete every compulsion she had (in her mind) successfully cured him of was priceless. Meanwhile, Penny frustrates over not having anything she can feel passionate about only to decide in the end, that she did not need anything specific when she could just show her love for Leonard and their friends.

“Bazinga!” Those moments for Sheldon when he believes he has bested them all are not the real Bazinga moments on The Big Bang Theory. The show is about obsession vs. passion and each episode threads a moral we can all use in our own lives.

You do not have to be a science nerd to enjoy The Big Bang Theory. Nothing makes my six and eight year old nieces cackle any louder or any longer than when Sheldon knocks, “Penny! Penny! [insert pause] Penny!”

For the longest time, sitcoms seemed to be the only shows I watched. And now, The Big Bang Theory seems to be the only sitcom I watch.

Sheldon and Amy

Do you think Sheldon and Amy will tie the knot?

      Probably the best sitcom of all time. The cast is perfect together and they play off each other like they are really friends. You can't help but laugh at their antics.

      Voted up and interesting.

      Big Bang Theory is entertaining and hilarious.

      If Third Rock From the Sun can no longer be filmed with its great production numbers and catch phrases and characters, then I'll watch BBT. - - Now, if they both could be shown on the same night, even with TRFS being all reruns - Bazinga.

      I am a recent convert to the show (I was a computer operator/nerd for years and was worried that it would be too close to home) and I LOVE it. Penny and Sheldon are the best 2 characters; she is so funny and gets all of the best lines. Sheldon is played to perfection and I think it's one of the funniest comedies on TV. It's such a pleasure to see a show where they don't have to resort to being course or crude for a change (like Two and A Half Men has gone or Anger Management or 2 Broke Girls - why can't they just be funny?)

      Thanks for stopping by. One of the reasons why I like TBT is that it is Not like so many other shows that resort to being course or crude.

      I love BBT. It's my favorite comedy on television next to New Girl which I think is more applicable to millenials than anyone. However, I think Jools is right. It's funny without being completely crass. Interestingly enough Big Bang Theory, 2 and a half men, and 2 Broke Girls are produced by the same man.

      Great hub!

      Alecia,

      I did not know all of those sitcoms are produced by the same man. Thanks for stopping by and for the encouragement.
