Season 3

In this multi-lens series, I'll be presenting you with a chronological list of each and every t-shirt worn by the character Sheldon Cooper on CBS's hit TV show, The Big Bang Theory.

Being a nerd at heart (and mind, body, and soul) I may not be the most fashionable homo sapien to ever graze the fields of this great rock called earth; but I know a snappy dresser when I see one, and Dr. Sheldon Cooper (played by Jim Parsons) is about as snappy as snap gets. And now with this list of t-shirts worn by the king of geeks, you can be snappy too!

So whether you're lounging around at home with your favorite video game or out making world changing discoveries in theoretical physics, these shirts, which elegantly blend together nostalgia, science and all-around nerdome, are sure to make you the envy of all your friends (whether they're real or imaginary).

I've kept this very simple. For each shirt I will include a photo, a brief outline of a scene in which it appears (per episode), and, if available, a link to where you can purchase these fine items. Enjoy!

      Does anyone know what the blue T-shirt from the Cornhusker Vortex show means? It's been driving me crazy trying to figure out what the tree and the human heart mean? And what are those things below them?

      I've recently started watching The Big bang theory, love the show and I was wondering where they get all science themed tee shirts, cool lens, a lot of work involved I'm sure, compiling it all. Well done.

      Now Funko has a toy figures with Sheldon in three different shirts, Flash, Batman and Superman t-shirts. Can't believe he got to sit in Jules Vern's elegant Victorian time machine!

      I cannot believe the dedication/effort you put in this lens series. I liked this one (out of your 5 lenses) as it was the least liked one and I see no reason for it.
