The Big Bang Theory Season 2 Review
I’m not sure how the average rating is actually lower than season 1 (not by a lot) because season 2 was a fantastic follow-up to the first season. There are very few sub-par episodes and there are quite a few memorable moments.
As for the overarching plot line of season 1, that is continued in this show, and expanded upon. It’s pretty clear by this point that Penny and Leonard will end up together. But each episode tends to be a self-contained story as well so if you only watch a couple of episodes here and there, you’ll still understand what’s going on.
None of the characters have changed but they have added a few guest stars (most notably during The Terminator Decoupling when they gave us Summer Glau.) They expanded a bit more upon Leslie Winkle, one of Leonard’s one-night-stands from the first season and they added a character (Dr. Stephanie Barnett) who starts dating Leonard for a few episodes. Also, they introduce us to Leonard’s mom, who is pretty much Sheldon’s soul mate, and Kripke, someone that the guys work with who acts like an arch-nemesis.
In particular, this season introduces us to some pretty memorable moments. It gives us Sheldon’s catchphrase “Bazinga!” which comes into play more in season 3. It also gives us rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock, Penny with a video game addiction, Sheldon driving, Sheldon having a stalker and Penny giving Sheldon a gift that causes him to hug her.
I don’t really have much else to add. The season was hilarious and totally worth watching.
There’s a bonus WB question!
What character from a book do you wish you could be for a day? Why do you find them so interesting (or fun or exciting?)
My choice: Elizabeth Bennett
I adore her. She’s a reader. She’s intelligent. She’s witty and sarcastic. She doesn’t give a crap about what people think about her and it totally defies the sentiments of the time. She wants to marry for love in a time when NOBODY did that.
I could totally live as her for a day when she’s still at home, surrounded by her family. Maybe they’re going to a ball and her sisters are all running around getting ready and they’re loud and energetic and giggly and she’s totally happy.
Of course, I wouldn’t mind being her for a day after she married Mr. Darcy either. *wink*
