The Big Bang Theory is an Independent TV show and it’s 11th season has just ended(Sheldon and AMY are finally married. YAY!) . I thought to give a detailed analysis to the readers why they should absolutely watch the 12th season as well as all the seasons they haven’t watched(yet).
The story starts with the 3 lead characters, namely Sheldon Cooper, Leonard Hofstadter and Penny. Leonard and Sheldon are physicist experimental and theoretical respectively and share an apartment while Penny,a waitress by profession, move in across the hallway. leonard and sheldon’s equally geeky friends Howard Wolowitz and Raj Kutropalli are introduced in the later episodes of the season where Howard is an Aerospace engineer while Raj is an Astrophysicist . In later seasons more characters are introduced of which Amy Farrah Fowler and Bernadett are the make characters. Other supporting characters like stuort, Lesley winkle , kripkey and Emiley sweeney have recurring roles.
