Anyone else like this? I'm an engineer and love this. I can see bits of people I know in all of them including my husband grin. I'm currently watching the comic book one and it's so funny .. speaking with a garage full of comics ... wah!!

I love it!

Love Sheldon and I currently have a crush on him grin

It's the best thing on the telly! My 3yr old DD does the "knock knock knock, Penny etc" thing on a regular basis grin

Incredible writing (apart from the relationship BS) and the acting is bang on (see what I did there wink)

Jim Parsons as Sheldon is an all time great comedy performance.

I love it, dd(9) loves it too, although I always think it's a bit risque for her, although irl not actually any more than the simpsons (imo), which I happily let her watch.

I love Sheldon, he is very attractive, Penny improved massively over the series, she was a bit giggly and odd in the first one I think.

FoofyShmooffer Sat 15-Sep-12 02:24:20

Oh God I love it. I'm currently series linking a couple being shown at once.
I showed DS(10) the instructions to Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock the other day. Her couldn't breathe laughing at Sheldon.

I think Howard is underrated. The episode where he's skyping Bernadette from Space Camp is hilarious. "I ate a Butterfly" gringrin

whatkungfuthat Sat 15-Sep-12 09:18:34

I used to go out with a Sheldon, he was theoretical astrophysicist and I'm an engineer. Some of it is scarily similar.

My DS does the Howard /Mother thingsadWhen Howard gets stuck in the 'mechanical hand' blush

(He won't let me drop him at school)

"Are you ashamed of your Mother"? I yell ask

"Yes, but that's not the issue" he replies

no idea why I put a sad there BTW !

Losingitall Sat 15-Sep-12 12:08:10

Love it as do both my sons.

Sheldon is bloody ace!

We're great fans although I find Sheldon a bit OTT at times.

They're all so geeky, it's great for kids who are into science & maths to be thought so cool & that it's OK to be different.grin

<DD1 is a female Sheldon only more kind!>

I love it. Currrently working through them chronologically.

I love the friendship between Leonard and Sheldon

Well...We watch that Show here in the States, and we Love it. We are Landlords
and my hubby says that "I".. am a "Sheldon" (when it comes to getting all of
My tenants to Sign their paperwork,Read their "House Rules" and so on).Well,
but I don't Dog them like Shel does.I think I understand that guy-He's just So
Into doing things Right,by the Book...and he just Can't understand Why every-
one refuses to Do things "Properly".We Sheldons Mean Well...we really Do.

glamourousgranny42 Sat 15-Sep-12 18:29:49

I LOVE TBBT!!! When i first watchd it i couldnt figure Shelodn out, now, I love him soooo much. He makes complete sense and he is sooo funny. Love the one where he trains Penny with chocolate. I use that to teach my students about reinforced behhavior! See, its educational as well. hehe

MrsRajeshKoothrappali Sat 15-Sep-12 18:31:33

You've forgotten to mention how adorable Raj is.....!

The show is amazing. When I first bought the boxset DS wrote about what the guys were getting up to in his homework!


We LOVE the BBT here. It is hilarious. DH is a techy geek and it makes us all howl with laughter.

DS (12) thinks its v funny too.

ooh, forgot to mention DD loves the theme tune and sings it all the time.

DS also changes our rock/paper/scissors game and introduces sheldons version.

LIZS Sat 15-Sep-12 19:36:44

When does the next season start on C4?

SoftKittyWarmKitty Sat 15-Sep-12 19:40:28

I love TBBT and can't wait for the new season to start over here. In the meantime DS (6) and I have been watching the repeats. I came downstairs earlier to find DS laughing hysterically at Sheldon in a ball pool popping up every few seconds going 'bazinga!' grin

Leonard is my favourite because I have a massive crush on Johnny Galecki.

PippasArse Sat 15-Sep-12 19:41:31


dd1 loves it too

I want to keep sheldon in a box

ArthurShappey Sat 15-Sep-12 19:41:38

I'm a physicist and I love it, it's hilarious! smile

Tressy Sat 15-Sep-12 19:44:32

Been watching it for ages. Some of them are repeats now but still watchable then second time round. Love it.

ALittleBitOfMagic Sat 15-Sep-12 19:45:15

I love it !!! grin

And I fancy the pants off Leonard . I hope he and penny last and actually end up together smile

When doea s6 start over here ?

gingercat12 Sun 16-Sep-12 19:37:35

We love it, too. Quite ashamed, but can recognise the episodes based on their first few seconds blush

DH and I work in higher education, and we loved it when Sheldon only through the post-grad girl out when she wanted credit on his paper.

I have a crush on Sheldon, too. Especially when he is singing or smiling. Have you seen "Am I a man or am I a muppet?"

amillionyears Sun 16-Sep-12 19:42:46

I like ....some of it.
Have watched some episodes but all out of sinc.
Are some of the series better than others? <awaits flaming>

The ball pit is my fave bit along with the Xmas one with the Leonard Nimoy napkin.

I also have bazinga as my message tone blush

SloeFarSloeGood Sun 16-Sep-12 23:32:02

I love how Sheldon has evolved since series 1.

Bazinga! Is DS favourite word at the moment.

RadiantMom Thu 27-Sep-12 14:08:12

The Season Premiere starts tonight!!
I am so excited that I think I am going to throw on my bazinga shirt and start making green lantern shaped cookies for my DS

Check out my BAZINGA shirt, it's purple,Big_Bang_Theory/Big_Bang_Theory_Girls_T-Shirt_Bazinga_Purple

OhSiena Thu 27-Sep-12 14:12:36

Tonight?? When where??

caspercat Thu 27-Sep-12 20:42:46

Bump gringringrin

BackforGood Thu 27-Sep-12 20:49:19

I just love it too - as do ds(16), dd(13) and I sometimes catch the 11 yr old too. dh (who has a PhD in Science wink) also loves it.
Only thing that is annoying is the episodes are all over the place - I'd like to just see a series run in order!

caspercat Thu 27-Sep-12 20:50:50

When's the new season start tho? And on what channel? Or have we missed it already?

I got series 3,4 and 5 for my birthday and a rock, paper, scissors, lizard, Spock hoodie. I wear it all the time. One of my best birthdays.

FrankelSaysRelax Thu 27-Sep-12 21:03:26

Season Premiere is tonight in the USA. I assume we'll be a few weeks behind.

fuzzpig Thu 27-Sep-12 21:07:27

My favourite bits are the ball pool, the bongos and the "ooooh it's a tiara"

DH sat down on the sofa the other day and DD immediately said "daddy, that's my spot"

She's 5 blush

FrankelSaysRelax Thu 27-Sep-12 21:10:00

"it's a tiara" is a genius moment grin

caspercat Thu 27-Sep-12 21:16:38

Ok, thanks Frankel. Just pondering, my DD is 6 and I'd love her to watch it with me, but was a bit hmm about the (admittedly tame & few) sex references. She asks questions about EVERYTHING & I'm not quite ready to go there yet! But loads of you on here have said they watch with their kids of a similar age. Do you just ignore those bits, go with the flow etc? Sorry is such a dumb question blush

BikeRunSki Thu 27-Sep-12 21:19:15

I am a physicist turned engineer by PhD and I love it - it is so close to home! Sheldon and I share a surname (although I am Dr MaidenName) and he is my facebook pic.

FrankelSaysRelax Mon 01-Oct-12 19:14:44

The "It's a tiara" episode is on E4+1 right now grin

iamabadger Mon 01-Oct-12 19:22:13

I was sent a program for a pancreatic society meeting the other day and there's is a Dr Sheldon Cooper mentioned on it grin Poor man!

FoofyShmooffer Mon 01-Oct-12 19:28:50

We watched a couple last night.

"Bazinga Punk"


"run Monty run" grin
Haven't seen DH laugh as much in ages.

I Love it!

And I also have a huge crush on Johnny Galecki grin

Some fab scene....

Christmas gift

ShipwreckedAndComatose Mon 01-Oct-12 19:47:51

Oh, yes!! The memory napkin!! Classic

I love this show. It always makes me laugh out loud.

it's just so cleverly written and beautifully acted...

ShipwreckedAndComatose Mon 01-Oct-12 19:49:00

Sorry that was supposed to be nemoy napkin!!

loved the tiara too!

Ephiny Thu 04-Oct-12 15:24:07

Oooooh it's a tiara, put it on me put in on me smile

Watched the new season premiere last night? Loved Sheldon/Amy's date.

fuzzpig Thu 04-Oct-12 16:48:56

As in season 6? What channel was it?

Ephiny Thu 04-Oct-12 18:18:07

Actually ignore me, it's not out in the UK yet (should be soon though smile)

I NEED season 6 to come out in the UK. Best thing on tv in years - it's the only thing I watch.

"Bazinga" in the ball pool ended up in me creased up with laughter. Amazing.

fuzzpig Thu 04-Oct-12 18:29:16

Hope it's out soon! It is also one of the only things we watch on actual telly (although now we own all 5 series on DVD we don't watch it on e4 anymore)

Another favourite moment is in season 5 when Sheldon is describing his idea for science madlibs, it's the only time you see him laugh that much, it's brilliant.

Poundpup Sat 06-Oct-12 22:47:50

Love it, love it, love it. Has me in absolute stitches. Sheldon kills me especially when he laughs 'he,he" and cracks a joke 'bazinga'.

My favourite Sheldon moment was when he was explaining the instructions of the game Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock and yes, I sooo played it back on Youtube.

AndrinaAdamo Sat 06-Oct-12 22:56:37

The tiara bit is my absolute favourite.

RalphGnu Sun 07-Oct-12 00:30:44

Love it!

DS is going through a stage of pretending to be a kitten - he curls up on my lap and makes me stroke him and sing "Soft kitty" to him. grin

Viperidae Sun 07-Oct-12 00:41:32

I have only recently discovered this and love it! It is so cleverly written, every episode makes me laugh. Think I may have to ask for dvds this Xmas!

LIZS Sat 20-Oct-12 10:22:53

Do we have a date for the new series airing in UK yet ? Tantalising synopses on www!

IslaValargeone Sat 20-Oct-12 10:24:41

I have only just discovered this, by accident on E4 or something?
Goodness knows how many series I have missed, but I love it.

stargirl1701 Sat 20-Oct-12 12:58:48

I'm singing 'Soft Kitty' to my 6 week old LO every night grin

5Foot5 Sat 20-Oct-12 19:13:55

A friend recommended this to us about a year ago and after seeing the first few on TV we immediately put it on our Christmas list! BIL bought is a box set of the first 4 series and we recently finished them and are now working our way through series 5. Love it!

Love it here too, so many wonderful, laugh out loud episodes. Loved the one where Penny had to sing 'Soft Kitty' to Sheldon.

Mrsjay Sat 20-Oct-12 22:53:04

My favourite one was on today just after penny and leanrd break up and sheldon has 2 dinners and goes to dinseyland, his 'Thank you penny' is hysterical

AmIthatScary Sun 21-Oct-12 12:23:35

grin I sing Soft Kitty to DD.

I am a huge Howard fan - loved him as a goth - and my favourite moment was on E4 the other day.

It's Leonard's birthday and Howard has to keep him out the way. He eats a peanut bar and his face balloons up.

I'm laughing my head off just thinking about it

LeeCoakley Sun 21-Oct-12 12:41:01

"You TELL people I'm a ROCKET scientist???? I'm a THEORETICAL PHYSICIST!!! You may as well say I'm a toll-taker at the Golden Gate Bridge!!

Love that whole scene.

Love the scripts. Perfect sit com.

Mrsjay Sun 21-Oct-12 12:45:05

"You TELL people I'm a ROCKET scientist???? I'm a THEORETICAL PHYSICIST!!! You may as well say I'm a toll-taker at the Golden Gate Bridge!

I love that He has a 'hot twin' It is funny

FrankelSaysRelax Sun 21-Oct-12 19:31:27

Isla the first 5 seasons are available on DVD and the 6th starts on E4 imminently

IslaValargeone Mon 22-Oct-12 10:16:36

Cheers Frankel 5 seasons to catch up on!
I'm in for a treat, just the thing to pass the time when my dh works away.

LIZS Wed 31-Oct-12 21:26:16
