The ideal comedy experiment continues as The Big Bang Theory continues in its seventh season. Television's number one series follows six of TV's funniest scientists and their street smart neighbor as they discover life, love and laughs in everything from comic-books to cosmonauts aboard the International Space Station.
Creator/producers Chuck Lorre ("Two and a Half Men") and Bill Prady ("Dharma & Greg") make comedy a science with the second big season of THE BIG BANG THEORY that makes room for new series regular Sara Gilbert (who starred on "Roseanne" with series star Galecki). Check out the physics of funny!
Worlds collided last season, when a love affair with Penny (Kaley Cuoco) opened a big, wide, wonderful world of romance for Leonard (Johnny Galecki). Sheldon (Jim Parsons), of course, likes the world just the way it is, thank you. But now, that Leonard and Penny have broken up again, they can test the variables of being neighbors once more.
Leonard and Sheldon are brilliant physicists, socially inept outside of the lab. It's up to free-spirited neighbor Penny to teach them a thing or two about life. While Leonard spends his days looking for love, Sheldon is quite content with their ever-expanding universe of friends, including fellow scientists Raj, Howard and Howard's new fiancée, Bernadette and Penny's "bestie" Amy Farrah Fowler.
At work, physicists Leonard and Sheldon conquer the cosmos. At home, however, the real world conquers them. And with one of the universe's greatest mysteries next door - their attractive neighbor Penny - they've got their work cut out from them!
Leonard and Sheldon are brilliant physicists, the kind of "beautiful minds" that understand how the universe works. But none of that genius helps them interact with people, especially women.
Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuocco discuss Leonard and Penny's ever-changing relationship
The Big Bang geniuses return after being thrown for a bell curve in the fifth season of "TV's top-rated comedy" (New York Post). While Leonard has to "debug" his relationship with Penny once more after accidentally proposing to her in the heat of the moment, Sheldon, Howard, and Raj continue to discover the feminine mystique is something that cannot be easily graphed or calculated.
