TV show description:
Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) are best friends, roommates, and brilliant physicists at CalTech. They understand how the universe works but have little interest in the people around them.
That begins to change when an attractive young waitress and wanna-be actress, Penny (Kaley Cuoco), moves into the apartment across the hall. Leonard becomes immediately smitten with the free-spirited girl and tries to forge a relationship with her, much to the confusion and consternation of Sheldon.
The geniuses’ equally geeky coworkers are smarmy Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) and Rajesh Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar), an immigrant from India who finds it difficult to talk to most females.
Over time, other characters are introduced, like waitress Bernadette Rostenkowski (Melissa Rauch), scientist Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik), and comic book store owner Stuart Bloom (Kevin Sussman).
Episode #279 — The Stockholm Syndrome
Bernadette and Wolowitz leave their kids for the first time; Penny and Leonard try to keep a secret; Sheldon and Amy stick together; and Koothrappali makes a new friend, as the gang travels together into an uncharted future.
First aired: May 16, 2019.
