The Big Band Theory is an extremely well written and hilariously funny show. When it first premiered i had no intrest in catching it. I put it on one day when nothing was on to see what it was about. Since that time I have been hooked. Have seen every episode multiple times. Sheldon Cooper is, I have to say, the star of the show. Not saying that everyone else ia not just as funny or important. It is a terrific cast. All unique and corky in their own funny ways that make this such an amazing show to watch. But Sheldon is a very smart unknowingly witty a$$hole that talks $h!t to everyone that makes him my favorite character. Very much like Chandler Bing from the show Friends. This show is definitely this generations Friends. I hope that this remains on tv for years to come.
