The Big Bang Theory Quiz: 66 questions about the show


If you find yourself glued to your TV to see how awkward Sheldon (Jim Parsons) is with literally everything or how sassy Penny (Kaley Cuoco) is with her friends on “The Big Bang Theory,” then this quiz is for you. you. The show may not be airing new episodes anymore (we know that, we’re sad too), but due to the beauty of syndication, we don’t think we’ll have to say goodbye to this group of friends of so early.

After years on television, “The Big Bang Theory” aired its 2019 finale to much fanfare. Each character’s story came to a purposeful ending, tying things together pretty neatly with an arc. Plus, we even get a tiny little flash-forward to see what’s next!

The award-winning show, which has aired over 200 episodes, became America’s longest-running multicamera sitcom when it faded into obscurity in 2019. Prior to winning the title, “Cheers” held the mantle with 275 episodes in the box. We won’t reveal the exact number of episodes for the series, because you’ll talk about it in our questions, but know that it’s a lot! And in those 275+ episodes, this group of friends have been through it all together: relationships, breakups, deaths, marriages, and more. We laughed, we cried and we loved the relationship between Sheldon and Amy (Mayim Bialik).

If you’re a big fan of the show, these trivial questions will probably be a breeze for you. Test your knowledge to see how well you know about Amy’s past endeavors, Sheldon’s quirks, and more with upcoming questions. Remember: if you don’t do well, Dr. Cooper will absolutely judge you.
