Howard is confident in trying to woo women which he most of the time gets embarrassed with his creepy jokes. He has an overbearing mother and she has influenced his disturbing behavior greatly.

Coming into the Lives of the Nerds

This nerd planet started shifting when a cute young waitress named Penny moved into the apartment across the hall from Sheldon and Leonard’s apartment. She used her outgoing personality and social skills to improve the personalities of those nerds. Even though Penny does always appear to have a terrible IQ, the geeky guys tried their best to charm her with their limited social skills her looks, and willingness to befriend them. Later, additional two female characters named Amy and Bernadette joined the sitcom as wives of Sheldon and Howard, while Penny and Leonard finally marry after many breakups, which the other nerds refer to by quirky names.

The favorite pastime of the nerds and their friends; from left to right, Bernadette, Howard, Leonard, Penny, Sheldon, Amy, and Raj.

The Big Bang Theory was a show that was made for families to sit down and have a laugh with a ragtag group of friends. As people with great enthusiasm for science, we all should give a try watching The Big Bang Theory, widely regarded as the best sitcom out there. It features many relatable characters, endless, memorable and hilarious moments, and an unforgettable ongoing story.

The rise in popularity of physics appears to be due to a range of factors, including Brian’s [Brian Cox] public success, the might of the Large Hadron Collider and, we’re sure, the popularity of shows like The Big Bang Theory.
