But when a waitress at the Cheesecake factory Penny, a lively and pretty woman becomes their neighbor, Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, Raj suddenly becomes face to face with another reality outside the laboratory. Though the whole show is quite nerdy and mostly depends on Sheldon’s eccentric character and science jokes to create humor, that doesn’t cast away romance from the plot.
In fact, love is what eventually develops the poorly developed personalities and one-dimensional lives of the men as Penny-Leonard, Bernadette-Howard, Sheldon-Amy romance unfold and bloom into mutually helpful relationships. Especially Leonard and Penny through their chemistry add other dimensions to each other’s personalities. This is the success of this sitcom and romance too as love here is shown at its fullest potential to help people grow from within.

This 90′ show was and still, is now one of the most lovable shows of all time as to how a group of friends living with each other and doing everything together look like is portrayed through this sitcom for the very first time.
Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Chandler, and Joey’s lives arise before us with some serious issues of lives including career building, finding love, and even being unable to have a baby. Through ten long seasons, the group of friends grow individually and together and with them, we grew to love the show as medicine of depression.

If you are into an adventurous love with lots of ups and downs you have to experience the most celebrated will-they-won’t-they of tv series history and decide if Ross and Rachel were really on a break. Or if you’re more into a homely secure relationship then you’re gonna love Monica and Chandler’s chemistry as these two build a beautiful bond through mutual understanding.
