The pilot.

Just been watching the original pilot on Youtube.

Aside from how they met the girl, a lot of it is almost the same as the series pilot.

Also, some of the jokes and actions (in the first pilot) that were taken out of the second pilot, were used in later episodes.  For instance, Leonard walking out in his underwear carrying a lightsaber is in "Big Bran" (1.02) and, also, in a slightly different context in the failed pilot.

The dancing scene in the pilot made me cringe, also I didn't like Katie, she was just too much, Penny was much more toned down from her, to me.

The unaired original pilot was akin to Two and a half men in some ways. IT worked with Two and a half men. Because you added the kid. Was the Odd couple and the kid, so it was funny. That kinda dark, montone humor just diddn't come across well in TBBT original pilot. It was cold. Katie came across a bit too much yes lol. To me the casting of Kaley was genius. The most crucial casting in this show. Without Kaley I have doubts this show would of gone as long as it has imo.
