Tv Season Info

Chuck Lorre (Two and a Half Men) & Bill Prady ("Dharma & Greg") co-created this new comedy about a pair of brilliant physicists -- roommates Leonard (Johnny Galecki - "Roseanne") and Sheldon (Jim Parsons - "Judging Amy," "Garden State") -- who understand how the universe works but have no clue about how to interact with people, especially women. All this begins to change when a free-spirited beauty named Penny (Kaley Cuoco, "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter") moves in next door. Sheldon is quite content spending his nights playing Klingon Boggle with their socially dysfunctional friends, fellow Caltech scientists Wolowitz (Simon Helberg -- "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip") and Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar, "Huck & Holden"). However, Leonard sees in Penny a whole new universe of possibilities ... including love.

Critic Reviews for The Big Bang Theory: Season 2

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

It may sound like hyperbole, but surely Sheldon Cooper is one of, if not the most side-splittingly riotous character that network TV has seen in many a year.

Jim Parsons is a riot and is reason enough to tune in each week.

September 11, 2013 | Rating: 8.4/10 | Full Review…

Big Bang has evolved beyond its simple premise.

If they can keep the funny coming, I will keep watching.

Sheldon is the main engine for the show's geek dynamic.

September 27, 2013 | Full Review…

Prickly Sheldon has become a character to love, and Parsons is doing something rare on network TV: making intellectualism admirable, even heroic.
