When I heard The Big Bang Theory was made by the creator of Two and a Half Men, I was incredibly skeptical for obvious reasons.
But after watching a few episodes before the New Year, I have to admit, I’m hooked!
After being an avid watcher for sometime now, I am confident to say I think it’s the best programme that has been broadcast on modern day TV.
Even though they had the stero-typical school life about the smart kids being picked on, it brings out the positivity about getting good grades and working hard.
One of my favourite moments is Lenoard’s speech at the graduation ceremony:
“Maybe high school’s great if you look like this… but I didn’t even feel like I existed at that school. And now that I think about it, I bet a lot of you feel the same way. So, for the remainder of my speech, this is for the invisible kids. Uh, maybe you never fit in. Or maybe you’re the smallest kid in the school, or the heaviest or the weirdest. Maybe you’re graduating and you still haven’t had your first kiss. By the way, 19; and Geraldine Coco, wherever you are, thank you. Maybe you don’t have any friends. And guess what? That’s okay. While all the popular kids are off doing– whatever, I don’t know what they were doing ‘cause I was never there… My point is, while you’re spending all this time on your own, building computers or practicing your cello, what you’re really doing is becoming interesting. And when people finally do notice you, they’re gonna find someone a lot cooler than they thought. And for those of you who were popular in high school, it’s over, sorry. Thank you and congratulations.”
People could learn something from this. I know I did. I was one of the invisible kids; the weird, English and Literature nerd and Drama enthusiest. I’m doing great :)
