The Big Bang Theory, which went on for 12 Seasons, was one of my Favourite series which I have watched multiple times. Thanks to Amazon Prime for having the series on their platform. My brother had introduced me to Big Bang Theory at a phase, when I was at my lowest in life. He had give me 5 Seasons in the pen drive and told me watch it one after the other episode. Somehow, I liked the series.

The series is a starts with four nerd friends Leonard an experimental Physist , Sheldon Theorotical Physisist , Howard an Engineer and an Astronaut. and Rajesh an Astrophysisist. Leonard and Sheldon are room mates and Howard and Rajesh often visit them to spend time playing games such as Klingon Boggle and Dungeons and Dragons. Penny, an aspiring actress and a waitress at the Cheese Cake Factory moves in as their next door neighbour. Leonard falls in love with Penny as soon as he meets her and says that their children will be smart and beautiful.

The 12 seasons are nothing but the journey these 4 friends go through as nerd bachelors, who did not have even basic social skills to men who have families of their own. Howard is the first one to marry Bernadatte (a Microbiologist working with a Pharmaceutical Company), followed by Sheldon and Amy (A neurobiologist, in reel and real life)and then Leonard and Penny. Penny and Leonard have been dating each other on and off. Their journey has a lot of ups and downs but there is no over dramatisation or the friends do not have fights. Yes, there are small disagreements but still they manage to resolve it on their own. They have a friend Stuart, who owns the comic book store, where these friends regularly visit to enjoy a good read.

The show also has guest appearance by a lot of Well known personalities such as Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak, Stephen Hawking, George Smoot, Kip Throne and Francis Arnold and many others. A lot of viewers did find the show to be boring post the 8th and the 9th season but I still managed to survive because that is how life is. It is never going to be the same as it used to be when you were in your late 20’s. The men are shown to be around 26 years of age, when the show begins and they are working together at Caltech. They had actual Physisist who would come and peruse the script at regular intervals.

The show had a good sense of humour and there was no prejudice created about any community through the show. It was thoroughly entertaining and did not promote any vulgar humour or swear words. There was no action or any over the top problems, but simple life and some fun moments. That is one of the reasons why I still miss this show. This shows brings back the memories of having a group of friends that will always stand by your back.

The show also has a spin off about Sheldon Cooper’s early days in Texas called as Young Sheldon, which is also available on Amazon Prime.
