The incomprehensible sitcom.

I recently found a website which said it offers thousand of hours of tv programmes online for only RM8 per month. At first I thought wow, this is actually a good bargain, HOWEVER, as I scroll through the content offered, I was disappointed to see that many movies that I wanted to see are not there. So never mind, I tried to watch others, again, HUGE disappointment, most of them have no subtitle, only a few of them have thai subtitle. How am I suppose to understand the dialogues if there are no subtitles? I'm the kind of person when watching a movie or anything, needs to fully understand the content, or else it would just be a waste of time.

Nevertheless, I manage to find something to watch which have both Malay and English subtitle. Thank God !!! Can you guess which is it?

Yeap, it's The Big Bang Theory.

I have always wanted to watch this sitcom but never had the chance. 

The sitcom is about the journey of 4 quirky scientist to finding true love, and a lot of the time, sex.
Sheldon, the boastful and irritating one, sometimes I just wanna punch him in the face.
Leonard, the most normal among the group.
Howard, the womanizer, who fails most of the time.
Raj, the Indian who can't talk to woman unless with alcohol.

Oh and Penny, the only female and non scientist in the group, she is their neighbour and also a waitress.

I got to say, it is extremely difficult to fully understand what Sheldon is talking about all the time. I had to switch to Malay subtitle to kept myself from keeping on looking up the dictionary every 2 minutes. Sheldon always use profound words like coitus instead of sex, or fallacious instead of wrong. Now you see my pain? The character of Sheldon made me hate and love him at the same time. He is like an intelligent version of Mr. Bean. He doesn't quite follow the social norm, his inability to understand sarcasm most of the time amuses me. 

I laughed so hard watching this. =)

I just finished 3 seasons in 1 week and I'm currently watching Season 4. I'm very disappointed with the character Amy. She's just a female version of Sheldon. Plus she talks like a robot, she's even more boring than Sheldon. Anyhow I still can't wait to see how the socially inept Sheldon develop feelings for his soon to be girlfriend in the next season. 

In the first 2 seasons, Sheldon and Penny always fight, and I was kinda hoping that they'll be together, a waitress and a scientist, the juxtaposition of these 2 will be terrific. By the way, I was extremely impressed by Jim Parsons who played Sheldon in the sitcom, I don't know if there's a tv screen in front of him showing his lines or something, but he definitely can say all those long and complicated terminologies and lines in one breath. Whether he memorize it or has wordings to help him, he is a splendid actor !

Anyway, if you'd like to watch it, you can go to

1 fun fact about Jim Parsons, he is gay. Oh and he doesn't look like 42.
