4ofN Posted August 23, 2011 Posted August 23, 2011 So, I have a question. Is TBBT about Leonard or Sheldon? This isn't a question of who you like better or who has more screen time, it is a question about the premise of the show. Is the show about a quirky but brilliant physicist (Sheldon), - who has to deal with a roommate who is only a normally smart physicist, and - who has to deal with his roommates obsession with the cute girl next door, and - who has to deal with his roommates nerdy and slightly peculiar friends? or Is the show about a normally smart physicist (Leonard), - who has to deal with a roommate who is a quirky but brilliant physicist, and - who has to deal with his obsession with the cute girl next door, and - who has to deal with his nerdy and slightly peculiar friends? The reason I ask is that, to me, Leonard always seemed to be the main character in the show. However, it seems that a lot of people think it is mainly a show about Sheldon. I understand Jim always being the one getting the accolades as Sheldon's quirky nature must require more acting skills, but that shouldn't mean that Sheldon is more of the focus. It even seems they make fun of this in The Toast Derivation, where they point out that Leonard is the focus. So, what do people think? (P.S. I think it would be too much of a stretch to say this is a show about a girl from Nebraska who comes to the big city to be an actress and ends up living next to a couple of smart guys - so I think Penny is out on this one) Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
