This must be one of the most hilarious sitcoms I’ve ever seen! After an hectic day, my wife and I watch episodes from Big Bang and your laugh comes from deep within you … but you ‘gotta’ have that sense of humour 😊 !
Each of these genius NERDS have their own idiosyncrasies, moods, humour, gall and idiocy… and, oh yes, let’s not forget their FASHION sense…
… but they are the fastest of friends…yet would kill each other [figuratively] when given a chance!
… they enjoy each other’s company.
… they enjoy their own mind games and their idiosyncratic humor.
… they live in their own little world.
… and, yeah, they enjoy their comic bookstore, collector-edition comics and Comicons!
So, what does this gut-spilling, hilarious comedy tell me – One can be a nerd and yet have friends from within that social group. They don’t hide that they dislike confrontation.
They are not trying to fit in. As far as they are concerned, their world revolves around their room and mutual activities.
This reminds me of my July 2019 post https://dinshawavari.com/2019/07/12/keep-up-with-the-joneses/.
In our world, we try to fit in; we want everyone to like us; we have to live upto the expectations of our society.
… BUT DO WE REALLY HAVE TO?
Like the Big Bang characters, can we not be happy with ourselves and who we are, instead of what we should be or look like in the eyes of society?
Leonard, Sheldon, Rajesh & Howard were marginalized growing up but found their own social & work group and don’t feel compelled to follow society’s lifestyle or rules.
Isn’t that a more peaceful & contented way to live … not “keeping up with the Joneses”.
