superb..........................By williamsgwynfa (627 reviews) from gwaenysgor , 28 Aug 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]this dvd series is superb. The series stars Kaley Cuoco as Penny (she played Billie in Charmed), Johnny Galecki (he played the part of David in Roseanne) as Leonard, Jim Parsons ( he has been in Judging Amy and Ed) as Sheldon, Simon Helberg (he has had guest roles in Reno 911, Studio 60, Sunset Strip, Joey and MAD TV) as Wolowitz and Kunal Nayyar (he has had a guest role on NCIS, and his theatre acting credits include 'Huck and Holden' at the Dahlia Theatre in Los Angeles) as Rajesh Koothrappali.
The series revolves around two physicists, who learn how little they know about life, when a beautiful woman comes into their lives.
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.
All this begins to change when a free-spirited beauty named Penny moves in next door. Sheldon, Leonard's roommate, is quite content spending his nights playing Klingon Boggle with their socially dysfunctional friends, fellow CalTech scientists Wolowitz and Koothrappali.
However, Leonard sees in Penny a whole new universe of possibilities... including love.
well worth watching.

Funny but lightweightBy Moseleys (4 reviews) from Southampton , 11 Jan 2010We laughed at the series, good to catch up on the first episodes though. Found the programmes too similar in the end.
Complete tosh.By Suhail Ahmad from Leicester, England , 13 Dec 2009My brother loves this programme and I cannot for the life of me understand why. This series is based upon the lives of four geeks. A lovely blonde beauty (Kaley Cuoco) moves into the flat next door to (obnoxious) Sheldon and Leonard. Leonard then develops a love interest in this new beauty and goes out of his way to interact with her. The basic premise of this series is perfectly acceptable (four geeks and a beauty. One geek falls in love with beauty). But that is where any positive aspect ends and infuriating irritation commences. I absolutely hate Sheldon. He is an exttremely arrogant, petulant deviant. I hate his effeminate mannerisms and his noxious delusuions of grandeur. How the hell is he still breathing?. In real life, he would have been murdered a long time ago (and rightfully so). Then there is the typical idiotic american biased/racist portrayal of the Indian geek Koothrapalli (which is not even a real word let alone a real name!). He has been given a very minor presence, compared to his white american colleagues. He has very little dialogue and even less, when in the presence of a woman!. In fact, the only time he is able to speak to a woman is when he is drunk! (otherwise he is completely silent). There is the scene in one episode where his parents wanted to intorduce him to an Indian woman. Wolowitz (the filthy low life) did a typically offensive Indian accent. No doubt, the mind numbingly stupid, uncivilized, uneducated americans find this incredibly amusing. However, I find it extremely offensive. It pigeon holes asians in the stereotypical manner. This Indian character is given a two bit presence. He is there just for window dressing. The white characters have far more presence, dialogue and character development in comparison. Typical stupid, racist american behaviour. Wolowitz is a filthy, perverted low life parasite. Leonard is quite endearing and Penny (aka Kaley Cuoco), is absolutely gorgeous. She tries her best to interact with a group of socially inept geeks. I have seen dvd1 & 2 so far and in all the episodes, I only found one scene amusing. The series is incredibly not so funny. Avoid.
