The Big Bang Theory is one of lucky few television shows that arrive at a safe-sailing third season without selling out on its signature comedy, that is, the art of geek mockery.
The premise of Big Bang, orbits around a typical set-up involving two physicist roommates and a charming blonde waitress living right next to their apartment.
Technical geek fantasies, Star Wars terminologies, and underdog misadventures follow suit.
Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons play roommates Leonard and Sheldon. One of them is madly in love with the girl next door and the other is an obsessive compulsive, anti-social genius.
Rounding up the gang are the equally-geeky and anti-social Wolowitz and Koothrappal. When Penny (Kaley Cuoco) moves in across the hall, we are treated to a spectacle of episodes on how much they know about life outside the skirts of a laboratory: Nothing.
