The Big Bang Theory 4

TX Time: 18h30
Genre: Comedy

Centres round five characters living in Pasadena, California: roommates Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper, both physicists; Penny, a waitress and aspiring actress who lives across the hall; and Leonard and Sheldon's equally geeky and socially awkward friends and co-workers, mechanical engineer Howard Wolowitz and astrophysicist Raj Koothrappali.

Leonard and Sheldon are brilliant physicists, the kind of "beautiful minds" that understand how the universe works. Wizards in the laboratory, but socially inept outside of it, none of their genius helps them interact with people, especially women.

In the Season 4 premiere, "The Robotic Manipulation": Penny finds herself along for the ride on Sheldon's first date ever; while Wolowitz finds a new use for a robotic arm.
