The Big Bang Theory brings us closer to the world of scientists, so despised in Spain, although portrayed as fans of 'Star Trek' and forced celibates. [Full Review in Spanish]

This remains one of the most dependably funny shows on TV.

The former Blossom star has integrated well into the crew of lovable nerds after joining the show in 2010.

For a show that started out with Penny as a sidekick to the guys, she has come a long way.

What makes Big Bang Theory so entertaining is its solid ensemble, but there's always someone that burns more brightly than those around them.

I have high hopes for this season. And I'm looking forward to more Penny/Sheldon moments.

Sep 30, 2013 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

I used to think the Sheldon/Penny pairing was the best on the show, but the Amy/Penny dynamic has become my favorite relationship on the series.

Like other Lorre-coms, it's bright and obvious as a cartoon, yet written with a clean, precise patter of jokes. It's also very well cast.
