NO BAZINGA! FEBRUARY 25TH IS THE BIG BANG THEORY DAY! THE CITY OF PASADENA MAKES IT OFFICIAL AT THE SHOW’S 200TH EPISODE CELEBRATION
Honorary Day Will Coincide With the Airing of the 200th Episode of the #1 Comedy Series in the Galaxy
Burbank, CA – February 20, 2016 – To celebrate the milestone of reaching 200 episodes, the City of Pasadena has declared that Thursday, February 25 will officially be proclaimed The Big Bang Theory Day, within Pasadena city limits. The hit comedy series has been fictionally set in the Southern California city for its entire nine-season run.
In a joint statement, The Big Bang Theory executive producers Chuck Lorre, Steven Molaro and Bill Prady said: “For 200 episodes, The Big Bang Theory has called Pasadena home. Even though we tape the show just down the road at Warner Bros., we’re honored that the city of Pasadena, which has given so much to our characters and our stories, has once again proved itself to be a true inspiration.”
Celebrating the 200th episode landmark at an event on Saturday evening, Pasadena Councilmember Andy Wilson, on behalf of Mayor Terry Tornek, joined series stars and producers – including Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik, Melissa Rauch, Chuck Lorre, Bill Prady and Steven Molaro – to issue the proclamation. The entire proclamation, presented by Pasadena Councilmember Andy Wilson, reads as follows:
Whereas Warner Bros. Television’s The Big Bang Theory premiered on the CBS Television Network on September 24, 2007, and during its subsequent 200 episodes has featured its main characters living in Pasadena, working as Caltech scientists and even popularizing the “Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock” game; and
Whereas the series, now airing in its ninth season, is currently the number one comedy on television, thereby drawing national, international (and even perhaps intergalactic) attention to the City of Pasadena; and
Whereas the talented cast, producers and crew of The Big Bang Theory – including co-creators Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, showrunner Steven Molaro, and series stars Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch – have portrayed the City of Pasadena as not only a city of advanced education and pop culture sophistication but also home to the occasional unexpected “Bazinga!” to countless viewers worldwide;
Now, Therefore I, Terry Tornek, Mayor of Pasadena, on behalf of the City Council, do hereby congratulate and commend the cast, producers and crew of The Big Bang Theory, and proclaim February 25, 2016, in the City of Pasadena as The Big Bang Theory Day.
The Big Bang Theory airs its 200th episode on Thursday, February 25 (8/7c on CBS). In the episode “The Celebration Experimentation,” the gang finally celebrates Sheldon’s birthday with a few special guests, including Christine Baranski, Sara Gilbert, Wil Wheaton and Batman’s Adam West.
Currently in its ninth season, The Big Bang Theory is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
What do you think? The cast of The Big Bang Theory TV show have renewed their contracts through the tenth season. Should the show be cancelled after that? How long do you think it should last?
great show great cast still so funny even though so many other people were added ! its just made it better !!!!! love the added addition of Will Wheaton but where is Crypke ? he should be in more shows to
The show is great! I even enjoy reruns I’ve seen repeatedly. I do think the Sheldon character is becoming more enjoyable as a mature & smart man, rather than always silly. Some quirks should remain, of course. I do think the young blonde actress who played the new screenwriter a couple of episodes ago, would add a spark to the dynamics of the group – as Raj’s new girlfriend.
Thanks for reading and for your comments, Liza. How long do you think The Big Bang TV series can last?
5 more seasons atleast 🙂 Such a wonderful show.
i think it can last as long as the cast is willing to stay with it, & as long as the writers can come up with stories relevant to age changes..can still be funny. Again, I do think that new blonde actress, (Raj & Howard met in the comic book store), can add the sassy spark Penny used to have. Nothing against the Penny character, just an addition…as Raj’s new girlfriend…she’s different & smart & can probably fit into the group…with new story lines.
Love this show, too. But I think you’re right, Penny used to have more personality than she does now… And she could use a better hair dresser, too. She’s no longer the adorable sweet cutie she was in seasons past. Another problem for me is understanding the awful voice of Bernadette… her voice is soooo annoying!
