The Big Bang Theory

Leonard and Sheldon (series stars JOHNNY GALECKI and JIM PARSONS) are brilliant physicists - geniuses in the laboratory, but socially challenged everywhere else. Enter beautiful, street-smart neighbor, Penny (series star KALEY CUOCO-SWEETING), who aims to teach them a thing or two about life. Despite their on-again, off-again relationship in the past, Leonard and Penny have finally gotten engaged. Even Sheldon has found a female companion - entering into a "Relationship Agreement" with neurobiologist Amy Farrah Fowler (series star MAYIM BIALIK), who recently asked him to take a break because she became frustrated with how slowly their relationship is progressing. In their free time, Leonard and Sheldon enjoy fantasy role-playing games with their ever-expanding universe of friends, including fellow scientists Raj (series star KUNAL NAYYAR) and Howard (series star SIMON HELBERG), and Howard's adorable microbiologist wife, Bernadette (series star MELISSA RAUCH).
