Saturday TV Special: The Big Bang Theory
Verdict: The show is absolutely hilarious especially because of fantastic one liners and sarcastic remarks five friends throw at each other. The show also uses a lot of nods and homages for science fiction and fantasy genre - the guys are huge fans of "Star Trek", "Star Wars" and "Lord of the Rings" among many, many others.
Whom you may recognize: The five main actors were previously unknown to me, but there are many guest appearances in the show including Eliza Dushku, Judy Greer, Keith Carradine,Will Wheaton and some surprise appearance from "Star Trek" ensemble. Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon delivers absolutely brilliant performance which is worth all the awards he got. The other actors, especially Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are fantastic too and really overdue for major awards.
Who's behind it? Chuck Lorre, the creator of "Two and a Half Men".
Who will like it? Fans of great sitcoms who aren't too annoyed with laugh track. The show is really funny and even though it's in its 5 season now it continues to amuse with every single episode.
When and where? Thursdays, CBS
