Check Out the Barenaked Ladies New Video for The Big Bang Theory Theme Song

Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies

One of the highlights of Comic-Con 2010 was the surprise appearance of the quirky Canadian pop-rock band Barenaked Ladies at The Big Bang Theory panel to sing their catchy theme song to the hit CBS sitcom. (Sample lyric: "Religion or astronomy, Descartes or Deuteronomy, it all started with the big bang.") It was an exhilarating moment for the crowd — and the cast. "To hear thousands of fans screaming and singing along with them was truly moving for me," says Simon Helberg, aka Howard Wolowitz. "Nothing to make a man question his masculinity like crying during an accordion solo."

The Jerusalem Duality

So Sheldon and Leonard are having another one of their über-scientific conversations in the school cafeteria. I don’t mean to make it sound like a yawner. Jim Parsons delivers science doublespeak dialogue brilliantly, and the word I get from folks who've attended tapings is that he’s a one-taker.Uh oh, here comes trouble. Dr. Gablehauser escorts a kid named Dennis Kim over to their table, and suddenly Sheldon is no longer the center of the scientific universe. Dennis is being recruited, at age 15, to join the university’s physics program. Sheldon’s confidence is quickly being stripped away by a teenager (who dismantles Sheldon’s research to his face.) Then there’s the prestigious Stevenson Award. Is Sheldon the youngest to ever win it? Nope! Guess who is? Oh yeah, this is going to be good.Cut to the best animation/music sequence on television today. Thank you, Barenaked Ladies.Even before precocious Dennis starts day one as a student, demoralized ... read more
