Audiences are good at figuring out which elements of a work are on which side of the Fourth Wall. No explanation is necessary for why our hero can hear a ringing telephone but not the movie’s soundtrack, or why the space ship is menaced by the Negative Space Wedgie , but not by the opening credits drifting by outside the ship: It’s also a wonderful thing to play with, and that is what Medium Awareness does; the characters acknowledge and interact with elements and conventions of the medium that shouldn’t technically “exist” in-universe. Suddenly the characters can hear the ominous background music or the disembodied narration, they can read the subtitles at the bottom of your screen, and they can tell when it’s almost time for a commercial break.

What the cast of The Big Bang Theory looked like in high school

Whether you have fond, or not so fond memories from your teenage years, we can all admit that high school had its ups and downs.

We did the best to handle it in a way that honored the characters and was as close to honest — in a sitcom — that you can be.

While trying to carve a living out of the London restaurant he runs with his girlfriend Justine, Archie MacDonald is called back to his Highland home, to the bed of his dying father, Hector.

Raj dislikes India, Indian food and Indian music, but appreciates the Indian lullabies his mother sang to him and the catchiness of Hindi phrases. Raj is a Hindu and believes in karma reincarnation , but eats beef. He is very shy around women outside of his family, and during the first six seasons of the show, found himself unable to speak to women while in the presence of them unless he drank alcoholic beverages , or he believed he had done so. Despite this, Raj has sometimes ended up in bed with women, leaving the other guys perplexed.

A recurring joke in the series has people, including his parents and Leonard’s mother, speculating that Raj might be gay due to his feminine interests and his close friendship with Howard, with whom he has arguments similar to those of a married couple.
