On September 24, 2007, science geeks everywhere cheered as The Big Bang Theory premiered its first episode on CBS. At the time, there wasn’t anything else on air like it. A sitcom that focused on a group of socially awkward nerds was the change that television needed. It gave geeks and non-geeks alike a show that they could both fall in love with and still relate to.
Over the last ten seasons, The Big Bang Theory has made fans laugh and cry. We have been able to watch the characters grow into more mature and more serious versions of themselves. Now on the 11th season, the series still manages to be one of the most loved shows in the country. In fact, last year it was the highest-rated comedy series on TV.
