Now step back and prepare for the ultimate comedic clash of realities and cultures as their lives will never be the same again.  It'll be the biggest explosion since the Big Bang!

Plot Summary

Season 1

The-Big-Bang-Theory Pilot 1stmeeting

Two Nerds Meet Live Woman; Leonard & Sheldon meet Penny for the First Time

Introverted Leonard Hofstadter and his roommate, the physics prodigy and OCD neurotic Sheldon Cooper find that the apartment next door has a new occupant. They are subsequently introduced to Penny, a perky farm girl from Omaha who makes her living as a waitress at the Cheesecake Factory while attempting to break into showbiz. Leonard immediately becomes hopeless enamored with the beautiful young actress/waitress while she becomes platonic friends with him and learning to tolerate his few but incredibly eccentric acquaintances along the way.

They include the sex-crazed horny Jewish engineer and mama's boy Howard Wolowitz with his 1960s hairstyle, clothing, and pickup lines; the painfully shy astronomer Rajesh "Raj" Koothrappali who suffers from extreme mutism in the presence of women, particularly attractive women like Penny; and of course, Sheldon Cooper who is an overly arrogant, narcissistic, overly inflated intellectual who has a pronounced lack of understanding human emotions and sarcasm.

The-Big-Bang-Theory Pilot Nerds-w-Penny

The Gang Assembled

Meanwhile Penny is struggling to cope with a recent bad breakup with her old boyfriend Kurt finds herself diving into the dating pool of Pasadena, California and promptly hits her head in the very shallow pool; Leonard struggles to confess his feelings to her. The group inadvertently discovers that Rajesh can speak to women when under the effects of alcohol. However, the more alcohol he drinks, the more obnoxious he becomes. And the entire group finds themselves struggling to cope with Sheldon's ever increasing OCD tendencies and deranged tendencies to force the world to follow his viewpoints. Finally, frustrated her lack of finding a decent boyfriend, Leonard is able to convince Penny to try going out with him. Penny admits that Leonard is far from the regular sort of guy that she usually dates, it might not be such a bad thing considering her lack of success in that area...

Season 2

Leonard and Penny's brief attempt at starting a relationship has crashed and burned faster than the Space Shuttle Columbia. But getting back to being merely platonic friends is awkward. Meanwhile Penny realizes that she has changed from her interactions with the quirky group and has become increasingly closer to all of them, even the whack-a-doodle Sheldon Cooper even briefly suffering from video gaming addiction to cope with her stalled acting career. Leonard pursues a number of relationships with several women but can't seem to completely let go of his romantic interest in Penny. Finally, Sheldon receives an unexpected offer to stay at the North Pole in order to perform several physics experiments which might prove string theory and decides to invite Leonard, Howard, and Raj to be a part of his team. Mainly because adjusting to anyone more qualified would be incredibly stressful for him. As Leonard departs for the three month-long expedition, Penny tearfully realizes that she will miss him...
