Trivia:
While a guest on the National Public Radio program "Talk of the Nation," Mayim Bialik confirmed that the university that the characters attend and/or teach at is based on the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasedena. Additionally, in one episode, the character of Leonard stated that he worked at Caltech.See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: In one episode, Sheldon states that pets are banned under the roommate agreement, but in another he adopts 25 cats. However, it's regularly shown that Sheldon uses the roommate agreement for his own advantage, often unaware or completely ignoring how it affects Leonard.See more »

Give It a TRY!, 29 October 2007
Author: genuinebovdiesel from MI

Being a physicists, I'm unsure of what to think of this show; however, the chemistry between the "nerds" is terrific! It is great to turn on a show that helps bring me back down to earth. The show may be a tiny bit unrealistic when it comes to how "nerds" actually behave, but you don't have to be a nerd to appreciate the science humor. In the same respect, the behavior of the "regulars" is a little exaggerated, but is done in such a way which helps accentuate the characters' contrast.

So what is to lose from watching this show?

You WILL be laughing by the end!
