Awesome shows. My husband quotes "I know people just like this" and that about says it all. You'll laugh and that's what makes it fun. Real life always makes you laugh if you look for the humor.
Call me slow but...

"amazon is going to release both seasons together for $51.99, while you can get each season separately for a total of $48
What's the brilliant idea here?
UPDATE February 23 2010:
as for today February 23 Season 1 and 2 when bought separately cost a total of $35.98 while Amazon is selling them together for $61.99... which means is $26 more! So you can still call me slow, but that still doesn't make any sense to me!"
Sparking wit and trivia...

"If you are like most of the non-drooling general public, you are probably sick of boring, unfunny "comedic" drivel that litters the television schedule nowadays. You must be starving for entertainment that can not only be funny but actually :: gasp :: intelligent and that can follow in its former footsteps closely with continuity. Well, my friends, there is a solution. Grab a bowl of popcorn and pop in, (or turn on), The Big Bang Theory!
Jim Parsons stars as Sheldon and Johnny Galecki stars as Leonard, two physicists who live together in an updated version of the Odd Couple.
Sheldon is a neat freak with zero sense of humor who can never tell when someone is being sarcastic and very well may be asexual, since he has never had even a hint of attraction for someone that we have seen.
Leonard is the more down-to-Earth of the two and it is because of Leonard that friends Howard Wolowitz, (Simon Helberg), and Rajesh Koothrappali, (Kunal Nayyar), even bother to come over, since Sheldon is, at most times, almost intolerable, (but somehow quite enjoyable just the same).
Leonard is hopelessly head over heels for his and Sheldon's neighbor, Penny, (Kaley Cuoco), a personification of the "dumb blonde" stereotype who works at the Cheesecake Factory and serves as the "Rachel" to Leonard's "Ross", if this were a Friends scenario. Thankfully, save for one minor hook-up that went nowhere, the sexual tension between them still exists and we are now in season three.
Wolowitz is the lovable sleaze of the group. He has all the one-liners to try and get all the women he can get into bed with him. He is also the inferior one of the group, since he is "only an engineer", as Sheldon loves to remind him, while the rest of the group have some sort of academic certification. He also finds the wackiest of clothing combinations and lives with his mother who we never see but only hear her, (reminiscent of Charlie Brown's teacher), and the exchanges between them are hysterical.
Raj has a major problem in that he literally cannot talk to women without the help of alcohol. If they are in a large group, he is fine, but one-on-one, he literally freezes up. Hilarity ensues in season 2 when the group are on a train and Summer Glau guest stars. Raj has a beer to warm himself up to talk to her and Wolowitz is quick to point out that Raj has mistaken the "beer" for a non-alcoholic drink.
In keeping with the Roseanne tradition, (Galecki had his start on the show as Darlene's boyfriend), The Big Bang Theory has had guest stars Laurie Metcalf as Sheldon's holy roller mother and Sara Gilbert in the recurring role of Leslie Winkle, the on-again, off-again bed partner for both Wolowitz and Leonard. Christine Baranski also guest stars as Leonard's mother who immediately hits it off with Sheldon.
The jokes are hysterical, (each episode usually has that one zinger that you'll quote with your friends), the trivia is enthralling and the characters are lovable. Plus, the commitment to continuity is more impressive than shows previous to this. Former jokes are revisited further down the line to reinforce previous points and to counter certain actions from occurring in such a way that you'll be saying to yourself, "well done!" Plus, the whole group is incredible in terms of acting with the way they regurgitate such long lines of dialogue with no hesitation--truly impressive.
If you would like to check out some wholesome entertainment, then you need look no further than The Big Bang Theory!"
Again over priced

"Buying the two seasons of The Big Bang Theory separatly are cheaper then buying the set. Does Amazon think people aren't paying attention? This is such a bad year and yet Amazon keeps trying to get away with higher prices! This time it's against themselves!"
