2. The cast is amazing
While Johnny Galecki was not new to our TV screen (we first loved him in “Roseanne”) and Kelly Cuoco made us laugh in “8 Simple Rules” back in 2002-2005, Jim Parsons was a fresh face. And let’s be honest, anyone who grew up in the 90s was excited to see Blossom (Mayim Bialik) back in the game. Each actor on this show brings his or her own brilliance to the role, and they are perfectly cast, so that even if we don’t always relate to their character, we really enjoy watching them.
3. The theme song sounds a bit familiar
Like all epic theme songs, the opening number for “The Big Bang Theory” is unmistakable. You hear it and you know what show is about to start. It’s catchy, it’s familiar and if you listen to the lyrics, it’s a perfect fit. The song by the Barenaked Ladies was recorded specifically for this show, and in our book it’s right up there alongside “I’ll Be There For You” by The Rembrandts (from “Friends”), “Where Everybody Knows Your Name” by Gary Portnoy (from “Cheers”) and “With a Little Help from my Friends” by Joe Cocker (from “The Wonder Years”).
