10 Things About the Cast of TBBT That Gets Better After Every Season

However extraordinary as season 1 of The Big Bang Theory TBBT seemed to be. There were connections, improvements, and storylines that just improved as the series proceeded.

The show was first aired on September 2007. The show presented the enthusiastic companion bunch. That comprises of Sheldon, Leonard, Penny, Raj, and Howard.

Season 1 had 17 episodes in it and gave audiences a great introductory to the work the characters did and what their connection was like. As great as season 1 was, there were relationships, developments, and storylines that only got better as the series continued.

THE BIG BANG THEORY: Sheldon’s Growth As A Person, Scientist, Friend, And Partner

In season 1, Sheldon was close-minded, judgemental of other people’s work, and had zero interest in a romantic relationship. In later seasons, he was the same person but he became more adaptable. Watching Sheldon’s transformation over 12 seasons was extraordinary.

TBBT : Sheldon And Penny’s Friendship

In the first season, Sheldon cleaned Penny’s apartment while she slept because her messiness bothered him, he allowed Penny to sleep on his couch under strict conditions, and his obsession with collector’s items bothered Penny. As time went on, the two created a mutual understanding and respect for each other. They were best friends.

The Dynamic Between Sheldon And Leonard


In season 1, it was clear that Leonard did whatever Sheldon needed to feel comfortable because he didn’t feel like dealing with the consequences of a whiney Sheldon. This created a one-sided friendship. As TBBT carried on, Leonard stood up to Sheldon and didn’t allow him to walk all over him anymore.

Raj’s Confidence Grows

The one thing that stayed the same throughout the series was Raj’s journey to find love. In season 1, Raj wanted his parents to help with finding a mate, but he later realized he wanted to find love on his own. It was when he fell in love organically that his relationships paid off. Aside from his relationships, Raj gained more confidence at work, allowed his natural hair to break free, and he stood up to Howard who took advantage of him from time to time.

The Introduction Of Side Characters

In seasons after season 1, Stuart’s comic book store added a new location for the group to go to, Kripke gave Sheldon a run for his money at work, and Bert’s interactions were fun to watch. These characters were a breath of fresh air from season 1.

Leslie And Sheldon’s Distaste For Each Other


Leslie Winkle was a fellow experimental physicist that worked with Leonard at Caltech. Her dry sense of humor and inability to deal with Sheldon’s quirks made her a fun opponent to watch. She and Leonard even tried to have a romantic relationship in season 1 but realized they were better off as friends.

Leslie was an underrated character who had the same intelligence as the core group. She fixed Sheldon’s mathematical problem on his whiteboard in season 2, she theorized why Penny became addicted to gaming, and she orchestrated a friends-with-benefits deal with Howard. However, it’s her comebacks with Sheldon that got better and better.

Mary Cooper’s Connection To The Group

Fans first meet Sheldon’s mom, Mary Cooper, when he’s fired from his job for insulting the president in season 1. Leonard called Mary to give her a heads up that Sheldon was in a bad place, which prompts her arrival.

Mary’s personality is the same in later seasons as it is in season 1. She’s uber-religious, culturally insensitive, but overall, an incredible mother. Mary also became a mother of sorts to the rest of the group. She always prayed for “Shelly’s little friends” and had a close bond with Penny. Fans looked forward to seeing more of her after season

Sheldon’s Understanding Of Sarcasm

In season 1, it became known that Sheldon didn’t understand sarcasm. He took what everyone said literally and was often the butt of the joke because of it. Once he became friends with Penny and met Bernadette and Amy in later seasons, Sheldon began to understand sarcasm.

TBBT: Leonard’s Self-Assurance

In season 1, fans noticed right away how insecure Leonard was. He was shy around Penny, he was nervous to stand up to Sheldon, and he didn’t have a voice in most of his relationships. As the series continued, Leonard’s confidence in all areas grew.

Fans loved that Leonard stood his ground with Sheldon on rules in the apartment, he was more honest with Penny (despite knowing a fight was ahead), and he even had a backbone against his frigid mother. His character growth was inspiring.

TBBT: The Group’s Experiments And Work Accomplishments

In season 1, the group’s time at Caltech was shown but not as much as in later seasons. As scientists, Leonard and Sheldon’s Internet research was applauded and the two were asked to talk about it at a conference. Sheldon also showed off his problem-solving skills in season 1 when a child prodigy threatened his research.
