Pilot for "The Big Bang Theory" should be the start of another hit for Chuck Lorre

Author: tavm from Baton Rouge, La.

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A couple of geniuses, Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon (Jim Parsons) return to their apartment after leaving a fertility clinic (they had changed their minds about donating sperm) and meet a new next-door-neighbor named Penny (Kaley Cuoco). Leonard, smitten with her, invites her for lunch at his place to the consternation of roommate Sheldon. I'll stop there and mention how funny many of the lines provided by Bill Prady and Chuck Lorre (of "Two and a Half Men" fame) are, especially those written for Sheldon who's hilarious whether analyzing his roommate's more-than-friendly interest in Penny or putting his intellectually superior attitude in overdrive. Should be another hit for CBS Monday Nights!

A Flying Start

Author: eevee_j from United Kingdom
12 November 2010

There are many aspects of the pilot show which serve excellently to comically drive the narrative and introduce the characters. Leonard and Sheldon are shown to dress awkwardly, their apartment is decorated with models of atoms and flip-boards and this fits them perfectly. Penny's colourful character and juxtaposition to their world works excellently. The topics and lexis of the physicist's conversation is shown as obviously abnormal through Penny's reactions and humour at their quirky ways, which we can relate to. Through the editing and use of cutting scenes with atoms, the beginning of their new, different story has a fantastic start.
