Big Bang is Back – in Book Form

Heads up to fans of The Big Bang Theory! If you’re missing the show since its finale in 2019, this is the book for you.

In the 500+ page The Big Bang Theory: The Definitive, Inside Story of the Epic Hit Series by Jessica Radoff, readers get all the details about this popular show that was on the air for 12 seasons. Told in a candid, conversational tone, the show’s creators, directors, and its famous cast members share behind-the-scenes anecdotes, photos and secrets with humour and heart, from the show’s preproduction to its final scenes.

Readers will see how much thought went into the smallest details for each character (what they wore, said and how they were portrayed) and how the writers got their ideas for episodes. So much thought and energy went into creating great characters with fun, yet meaningful story arcs. I especially loved the tidbits about how some of its well-known catchphrases (Bazinga!) and character quirks (Sheldon’s three knocks) came to be.

The show not only attracted millions of viewers each week but also the attention of famous guest stars like Stephen Hawking, Bob Newhart, Mark Hamill, Kathy Bates, Stan Lee, Carrie Fisher, Buzz Aldrin, and Elon Musk to name just a few. Some of these celebrities and scientists share their experiences on set within these pages.

This fun, well-researched book shares many details of the sitcom which had 279 episodes in its 12-year fun, making it the longest running multi-camera sitcom in history. Not to shabby for a sitcom about a bunch of nerds, eh? This is a great pick for fans of the show who want a trip down memory lane – just be prepared to have the urge to rewatch the show once you’re done the book.
