The Big Bang Theory Promotional PosterThe Big Bang Theory launched its pilot in 2007, and since then, it has been a great success. The story follows the lives of four socially awkward stereotypical nerds: Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, and Raj. They share an apartment and live on the same floor as Penny, an attractive waitress and aspiring actress.

The show is popular among a wide range of viewers including teens and adults. Viewers from many age groups like it because they can relate to the characters.

Sophomore Olivia Gomez said, “[My favorite character is] a tie between Raj and Howard. Raj because he’s adorable but he can’t talk to women, Howard because he’s funny in a creepy way.”

Sophomore Lia Eldridge said, “My favorite character is Leonard. He’s smart but not super annoying.”

“It [The Big Bang Theory] combines nerdy physicists with humor and it’s relatable,” said Gomez.

 The show has had continuous success. Comparing past seasons to the current one, Gomez added,“It is better now than when it first started.”

“It [the show] is better because they [the actors] are funnier. The jokes are smart compared to other TV shows,” added sophomore Pareesa Darafshi.

The show has changed a lot from the beginning. “Probably Howard changed the most, he got married. It [The Big Bang Theory] used to be about him and Raj trying to find girls. He used to go to bars and tried to find girls, but he doesn’t do that anymore.” said Darafshi.

 Darafshi mentions what she wants to happen later in the show, “I hope that Raj finds a girlfriend that accepts him for his awkwardness.”

 The show has received critical acclaim over the years, including Emmy nominations.

With its witty and clever jokes, the show will continue to please many crowds and remain a favorite.
