The early laughter is just proof that Big Bang Theory, which is in its third season, is doing many things very right.
Somewhere during the run of a good character-driven sitcom like, say, Friends it reaches a point where the characters are so familiar that the jokes come easy but not so familiar that they breed contempt. The Big Bang Theory is right in that sweet spot.
Metcalf and the other actors have a relatively easy job in the premiere because the joke writing is so well done.
Let's face it, what lifts The Big Bang Theory into frequent excellence is its one constant from the start: the brilliantly nuanced performance of Jim Parsons.
