The Big Bang Theory

Content by Mauricio Benson

One event I look forward to each and every week is sitting down and watching an episode of "The Big Bang Theory" on my direct tv.

In my opinion, it's the best comedy on television. Fans of the show have appreciated it for years, and now even the critics are taking notice. Jim Parsons, the actor who plays Sheldon Cooper recently won his first Emmy for Best Actor in a Comedy Series.

On the show, Dr. Sheldon Cooper is joined by his roommate Leonard and their two friends Howard and Raj. This show on the surface may look like a comedy farse about 4 geeks and their geeky life. It's really much more than that. Each of the characters struggle with an issue. Sheldon has issues with everything in life, Howard tries too hard to be a player with the ladies, Raj is very insecure and Leonard dates the very attractive Penny who lives across the hall. Penny is no geek, but spends most of her free time hanging out with them.

It's a different adventure each week for the guys who always get themselves into trouble, but find their way out. This season the show moves to Thursday night in a better time slot. Guest stars booked this year include Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and members of the origianl cast of Star Trek.
