This is an easy one for me. My favorite TV show ever is The Big Bang Theory. My best pal, Stephanie, and my cousin Brickey introduced me to this show in 2009. Big Bang never ceases to make me laugh, and frankly, it looks like they asked to borrow all my t-shirts for the costumes.
The Big Bang Theory has extremely clever writing, a hilarious ensemble cast, and a commitment to scientific accuracy. I don’t know how many other shows actually keep an actual theoretical physicist on staff just so all their science jokes can be feasible, but The Big Bang Theory does. I watch the show just about every time it’s on the air.
The thing I think I appreciate the most about The Big Bang Theory though, is the era it helped usher in–the era of the nerd. I’ve been a nerd my entire life. I’ve been mocked and teased for it. I’ve been told that there are “no girl nerds,” thus making me feel even weirder about my nerdy interests. It never swayed me though. I’ve always been unabashedly nerdy. Why try to be anyone other than me? The Big Bang Theory has finally made it culturally acceptable to be a nerd and (dare I say it?), even cool. It also opened the door for me explore many other nerdy interests that I ended up loving too. Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and Dungeons & Dragons are all by-products of my love for The Big Bang Theory.
What’s your favorite all time show? Do you love Big Bang as much as I do?
