Life Lessons From Sitcoms – The Big Bang Theory

Welcome to this months feature all about sitcoms and comedies, I watch a lot of them and always have done for as long as I can remember and looking back on them, I have learnt so many life lessons along the way. So I thought why not shine a light on them and share them with the world – some of them are important some of them are silly little things but I think it is always interesting to share. Today’s life lesson comes from – The Big Bang Theory 

Life Lesson Learnt: Science!

You know, this probably sounds a little bit silly but I do find that The Big Bang Theory has actually taught me bits of Science that I had never known before! I am not sure saying that, I can start quoting equations left right and centre but it has definitely allowed me to understand some theory and ideas around them a lot better then before. An example is Schrodinger’s Cat – that I didn’t even know existed know I understand it!

Whilst this show may not be for everyone you really have to praise what it has done to promote science. The producers worked closely with real life scientists to make sure that a lot of it was based on truth. Everything science based was fact checked by real physic lecturers. The actress who plays Amy Farrah Fowler, Mayim Bialik has  PHD in Neurosciences and Biology so could help out as well.

If The Big Bang Theory had been around when I was a kid I am sure that I would of done better in Science. All I ever had was Substitute teachers who couldn’t control the class. If I had this I would of got better scores and even though I got a B, this show could of f lead to an A in GCSE.

  1. This was the best sitcom that I watched without failed and enjoyed every scene. Not only it was funny but informative with real sceientific facts as well. Me and my son who are also big fan of Star Wars, Star Trek and Indiana Jones can truly relate well with these 4 guys and understand when Penny don’t get the jokes or the things that makes the guys to go crazy.

    I watched every one of the episodes when it was first aired on cable and with re-runs, I am enjoying it with the same feeling I had when I first watched the episodes. Some of the jokes can never get old.
