I am a latecomer to this, caught a few repeats on E4 and decided I needed to follow it from the start.
Watched the one where Sheldon is stuck on a problem and is in the ball pit with Leonard, laughed till I cried.

grin

Thats my favourite episode ever! I love Sheldon.

nkf Sat 29-Dec-12 14:58:21

It is so funny. I must get the boxed set too. I am crazy for Sheldon.

Cherrypi Sat 29-Dec-12 14:59:26

Ooh me too. Not up to that one yet.

Sparklingbrook Sat 29-Dec-12 15:07:38

Bazinga! DS1 had The Big Bang Theory Party Game for Christmas but we are yet to play it.

IslaValargeone Sat 29-Dec-12 15:09:44

We are doing about 3 episodes a night, I shall be bereft when it's over.

TanteRose Sat 29-Dec-12 15:11:17

Just ordered the box set Seasons 1-5 from Amazon - really reasonable price! Can't wait grin

DD and I love this show

LIZS Sat 29-Dec-12 15:12:52

I love the ball pit episode, also the one with the cats Zazzle is just so zazzy! and any rendition of Soft Kitty

Sparklingbrook Sat 29-Dec-12 15:18:25

I love the zazzy cat episode too. Also 'It's a tiara'!! and the Leonard Nimmoy napkin Christmas one. grin

IslaValargeone Sat 29-Dec-12 15:22:22

Loved the napkin one too.
We have become somewhat obsessed. Dh has gone to work in his rock, paper, scissors, lizard, Spock t-shirt today grin

Sparklingbrook Sat 29-Dec-12 17:27:01

Played the game. Had to explain 'Coitus' to DS2 (10) blush Realises game is a 15+. blush

Sparklingbrook Sat 29-Dec-12 17:28:02

He does know what sex is but not the word 'coitus' BTW. grin

FrankelcenseAndMyhrr Sat 29-Dec-12 17:29:19

One of the best shows currently on TV grin

Sparklingbrook Sat 29-Dec-12 18:11:27

Ooh dear there is a card in the game that says 'Friends with Benefits' blush We have had such a laugh playing it.

Smellslikecatspee Sat 29-Dec-12 18:14:24

Runs in-- shouts Its Tiara-- runs out again

IslaValargeone Sat 29-Dec-12 18:16:50

I shall have to buy the game.

streakybacon Sun 30-Dec-12 07:33:35

DS got the box set 1-5 for Christmas so we're doing the same. There's not much makes me laugh out loud these days, but this just kills.

Nimoy napkin episode last night - still aching grin.

The game sounds fab grin.

cookielove Sun 30-Dec-12 20:40:18

The all time best episode is the tiara episode. Amy rocks it so well.

Dh got me into it, i watched several series to catch up on him but we are completely up to date, we adore it. I heart Sheldon blush

nkf Sun 30-Dec-12 20:53:06

Another vote for the Tiara episode. Actually Amy generally. Love her. Also love the episode where Sheldon and another chap (I forget his name) have an exercise competition in order to see who will ge the office.

And all the mothers.

nkf Sun 30-Dec-12 20:53:33

I would like all the mothers to join MN and start posting AIBUs.

IslaValargeone Mon 31-Dec-12 15:52:37

I'm only a few episodes in with the Amy character and I'm not warming to her at the moment.

Sparklingbrook Mon 31-Dec-12 16:03:26

She grows on you Isla. Honest. smile

caspercat Mon 31-Dec-12 16:26:06

Latecomer here also, but am already obsessed by it, I think it's overtaken Friends as my favourite ever comedy.
Does anyone know the episode name/number for the ball pit episode? It's one of the few I can watch with DD & she laughed so hard, I really want to watch it with her again, love seeing her laugh like that grin

IslaValargeone Mon 31-Dec-12 16:27:30

I think it's called the Einstein something or other, season 3.

IslaValargeone Mon 31-Dec-12 16:28:41

The Einstein approximation.

perplexedpirate Mon 31-Dec-12 16:29:27

Amy is brilliant! I love the episode where she buys Penny the portrait of them both.

IslaValargeone Mon 31-Dec-12 16:31:18

Hopefully like sparkling said, she'll grow on me.
I do like Bernadette though.

Sparklingbrook Mon 31-Dec-12 16:33:12

That's weird. Bernadette is really annoying me. grin

IslaValargeone Mon 31-Dec-12 16:35:29

Really? grin
I'm only on the episode where Amy invited herself to Penny and Bernadette's girly night in.

Sparklingbrook Mon 31-Dec-12 16:37:57

Plenty of time. She is annoying me in the new series. grin

PainForLife Mon 31-Dec-12 16:41:14

just had to add "sheldon" is my fav absolutely love him. watched sheldon's best episodes last night on E4 it was brilliant.

sheldon saying Bazinga in the ball pit - is my fav episode! watched it on E4 first then had to switch to plus1 to watch it again. It had to be done grin

tedmundo Mon 31-Dec-12 16:45:57

oh isla - i ENVY you getting to see this amazing programme for the first time. Repeat viewings are never the same.

I second the opinions of Amy being a brilliant character. I won't do spoilers but, honestly, the development of her, Sheldon and their "relationship" is writing gold.

The episode where Sheldon serenades her with a rose between his teeth ...

BAZINGA! (As if! But wouldn't that be great to see?!)

caspercat Mon 31-Dec-12 16:58:19

Thanks Isla grin

MardyArsedMidlander Mon 31-Dec-12 17:04:59

I laughed so hard at the ballpit one- the cats ran out of the room!

LeeCoakley Mon 31-Dec-12 17:08:26

In order of likeability and brilliance -

1. Penny
2. Sheldon
3. Amy
4. Bernadette
5. Leonard
6. Howard
7. Raj

It's definitely the successor to Friends for being able to watch the same episodes over and over again and still enjoy them.

Sparklingbrook Mon 31-Dec-12 17:12:43

1.Sheldon
2.Penny
3.Amy
4.Leonard
5.Raj
6.Howard
7.Bernadette

6&7 placed purely down to the new series. wink

fuzzpig Mon 31-Dec-12 17:22:54

There's a GAME?!?!?

<runs off to google>

fuzzpig Mon 31-Dec-12 17:28:24

We only got into BBT earlier this year but we are truly addicted and have all the DVDs.

Also got 14yo hooked, to the extent that 2 of her Xmas presents were (this won't make sense if you haven't seen season 5 yet) a poseable Spock, and white gloves with a moustache on each index finger! grin

BackforGood Mon 31-Dec-12 17:37:44

It is by far and away the funniest thing on TV. We seem to randomly pick up all sorts of out of order episodes on various channels, just flicking through, but it doesn't matter - they 'stand alone' well. It's rare to get a TV show in this house that all of us like (dh, me, dcs aged 16 - 11) smile

fuzzpig Mon 31-Dec-12 18:46:44

I gave DH a robot evolution tshirt that is the same as Sheldon wears. I found it on amazon but it turns out there's a whole website dedicated to the gang's tshirts! It's called sheldonshirts.com or something like that.

I was also trying to get him the 3D Star Trek chess they play (since he also likes Star Trek and loves chess) but it turns out it was made by the franklin mint and goes for around £100! shock

Some of my favourite moments are the tiara, the ball pit, and the bongos. Also Howard opening the dove pan thing, and where he's doing the space training "I ate a butterfly!"

inchoccyheaven Fri 04-Jan-13 00:27:00

My dc got me into BBT but DH doesn't think it is funny. I bought box set when it dropped suddenly in price on Amazon before xmas.

My fav episode is the xmas present one,I almost cry each time when Penny says "look Lenard Shelden's hugging me" grin Sheer brilliance.

Didn't know there was a game though will have to look it up.

ThatVikRinA22 Fri 04-Jan-13 00:34:17

i love it....

i live with a sheldon. DS has aspergers, though DH pointed out that i always need to sit in the same place sheldon does on the sofa the other day grin

its genius. i also love the xmas pressie one where penny gives sheldon the signed napkin.....

i cant wait for the next one - it had a break over xmas! i need the box sets!

DrRanj Fri 04-Jan-13 00:36:46

I heart raj! grin

fuzzpig Fri 04-Jan-13 09:48:39

I got into it earlier this year, not long after I learned I have Aspergers. It's really helped me see the funny side of myself smile

LIZS Fri 04-Jan-13 09:49:37

I thought the creators denied S was AS

fuzzpig Fri 04-Jan-13 10:05:36

I'm not sure either way really but someone on here mentioned it, which was why I decided to give watching it a go, and was hooked from then on!

DrRanj Fri 04-Jan-13 10:09:10

LI.zS the makers may not have intended to make Shelton as, but all I know is we have been shown a YouTube clip of Shelton explaining his " friendship algorhythm" on a whiteboard in child psychiatry lectures to illustrate the trait of understanding social norms but nit really empathising with them!

Osmiornica Fri 04-Jan-13 18:20:48

We bought the boxset a while ago as we were late to the series too but love it now. I even did a bbt cake a few months ago. I think I've seen most on tv but am hoping as we go through the boxset there'll be the odd one I still haven't seen before.

I'm not sure about the Amy character as I just can't see why she'd waste her time on Sheldon - she's not really getting anything out of that relationship is she?

IslaValargeone Wed 09-Jan-13 16:35:33

Watched the tiara episode last night. grin grin

fuzzpig Wed 09-Jan-13 16:50:52

Put it on me! Put it on me! grin

fuzzpig Wed 09-Jan-13 16:57:01

That's the same episode as the magic show isn't it? I love the dove pan bit.

meditrina Wed 09-Jan-13 17:02:32

"she's not really getting anything out of that relationship is she?"

No - but remembering the one where they met, and the one where they skyped her mother, she doesn't need to. The relationship with Penny is far more important; to her, to Sheldon and indeed to all the main characters.

We got the box set between Christmas and New Year, and I'm sure my arse is a couple of inches wider from the amount of time it's been parked on the sofa whilst watching.

Nerdy DS wants Sheldon's 3 person chess for his birthday. Somehow I don't think that's going to be possible.

fuzzpig Wed 09-Jan-13 17:28:52

I read a book called the Genius in my Basement about a man called Simin Norton - he also invented a 3 player chess game. Sadly you can't buy it! And I don't think it had a pope or a jetpack in it <boring>

You can get the 3D Star Trek chess though (rare and expensive) or alternatively would he be happy with this as they play it on the show too?

fuzzpig Wed 09-Jan-13 17:30:41

Also I've heard that somebody was going to make a real Mystic Warlords of Ka'a card game but can't find any. sad
