The Big Bang Theory (2007)

A comedic acceptance of nerd culture with intelligent jokes scientists will especially appreciate in thematization, a collection of well-acted main characters, and career performance by Jim Parsons as theoretical physics’ superheroic protagonist. 8/10.

Plot Synopsis: Mensa-fied best friends and roommates Leonard and Sheldon, physicists who work at the California Institute of Technology, may be able to tell everybody more than they want to know about quantum physics, but getting through most basic social situations, especially ones involving women, totally baffles them. How lucky, then, that babe-alicious waitress/aspiring actress Penny moves in next door. Frequently seen hanging out with Leonard and Sheldon are friends and fellow Caltech scientists Wolowitz and Koothrappali. Will worlds collide? Does Einstein theorize in the woods?
