Trivia

Much of this Pilot script was re-used almost entirely intact for the second attempt at the pilot. The most obvious differences are the Set Design & Set Dressing was completely re-designed, the 4 character dynamic was re-designed to be 4 male nerds with the new 5th female character re-positioned as a neighbor now living across the hallway. The 2 female character traits were made more sympathetic in the Penny version, and the female scientist traits in the pilot was later re-configured among the male scientists, and later the female scientists. Sheldon was also re-configured to be more insular and childlike. See more »

Horrible but funny
14 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

It is amusing to see a scrapped idea of the big bang theory where Sheldon masturbates and penny does not exist. But there is so much wrong with it. Starting with the theme which is horrible and not indulging like the uplifting current theme. Secondly, the whole thing looks like a 80's show and is just poorly made. Lastly, Sheldon doesn't have what makes him Sheldon, his smirk remarks, his ability to not understand common sense, and he is just plainly a boring character. So yes watch this, but be happy they never went with this storyline. review- Okay. Rating 5.8. Also one mistake i forgot to add is the idea of sheldon liking butt, he is clearly a boob man.
