The show is best if watched from the beginning. I had seen half of an episode before and wasnt that into it. My finace bought the first season and now I'm addicted. This shows premise is about four nerdy socially inept scientists and their pretty next door neighbor. Sheldon is my favorite character. I highly recommend this series. Its smart and very funny. Its just an all around good show that lifts your spirits. Season three has currently just started and I love it!!!!
