It all started with the big bang!

“(Knock-knock-knock) Penny!
(Knock-knock-knock) Penny!
(Knock-knock-knock) Penny!”
— Sheldon Cooper

The Big Bang Theory was a fun show about four individuals involved in science and technology and their interactions with each other. That unique backdrop made it interesting and unlike other shows which just recycle the same plots and storylines.

Sheldon was easily the most interesting character among all the different characters the show introduced us to. I was glad to hear that his character received its own spinoff series. That will add even more backstory to the show and his character.

Such shows are important because they help promote science and because they help humanize those who are engaged in science. It helps us see how similar we all really are. How our core values and aspirations transcend any superficial distinctions.
