Great sitcom, has to be the best show on tv atm. A laugh a minute! It does need more intellectual humour rather than sexual though

Who hasn't got a awkward silence in a date? But indeed a worthy first episode, gotta love the show! Honestly though I would had pushed the shutdown button, before going to the ER ;D

Awesome show, awesome episode. I personally don't think this is a show just for nerdy people and I think there are a lot of people who think that who I wish didn't, I realise some of it may be hard to understand for some people but it's still a hilarious show.

It seems a lot of people here don't understand intellectual humour and can't handle it in a sitcom. Big Bang is a lot funnier when it comes up with physics jokes and situations that arise from the basic premise of the show. Bringing in Sci Fi movies and series such as Star Trek are great. Falling back on easy sexual situations takes no intelligence whatsoever. That's not what this show started out to be. It would be nice if it didn't become just another show with little intelligence. Personal attacks such as saying other commenters are retarded just shows how high the IQ is of that particular individual.
