Laugh out loud funny!
Our whole family loves this hilarious ensemble comedy show. sheldon is an eccentric physicist with nobel prize potential and limited social skills. his roommate, leonard, is a run-of-the-mill genius by comparison; also brilliant, but self-aware enough to know there is more to life than physics research. their social group is rounded out by raj, another physicist who is to shy to talk when women are present (unless he has had a few drinks) and howard, the mere engineer of the group. these four friends are fairly content to watch science fiction films, collect action figures, and chase girls unsuccessfully . . . until they meet the girl next door (literally), penny, the aspiring actress and "dumb blonde" who can teach these four brilliant scientists a thing or two about enjoying life. the characters are all likeable and relatable in their own ways and mostly nice to one another. you might think these characters are over the top, but i have met enough geeks to know that people like this really do exist . . . and really are entertaining. fun for the whole family; we haven't yet seen an episode that didn't make us laugh out loud!
