After twelve years on the air, 'The Big Bang Theory' says goodbye this Thursday on the US network CBS. The series, which saw the light on September 24, 2007, saw its end after the goodbye of actor Jim Parsons, who plays the neurotic Sheldon Cooper; with four Emmys and a Golden Globe. After knowing their march, the people in charge of the fiction assured that it did not make sense to continue without him, and decided to make the twelfth the last season.
«I am delighted with the end. It is simply beautiful. You will cry, but in the sweetest way, "said actress Kaley Cuoco (Penny) about an outcome that arrives in Spain on Friday at 23:50 in the hands of the TNT payment channel, and next week, on day 23, in open and in prime time in Neox. And it is that 279 chapters later, it is time to say goodbye to one of the greatest referents of the geek culture, and that, at least with droppers, has introduced science in millions of homes around the world.
"As it has had a global impact, I want to think that it has awoken some vocation, as when 'Cosmos' was a success, that there were many children who wanted to be astronomers," comments José Miguel Mulet (Denia, Alicante, 46 years old). Although the scientific disseminator, Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, does not hide that the secret of the success of 'The Big Bang Theory' is that it is "a very funny series" and not "that talks about science or scientists."
But this does not mean that we should detract from a fiction that, "from a scientific point of view, is quite well documented," and in which "all the slates that come out reflect formulas and real mathematical calculations", according to Mulet, He confesses that on some occasion he has been identified with one of the protagonists. "There are things that may seem exaggerated, but also others that in reality are much more. The prototype of eccentric scientist and absolutely involved in his work is a high percentage. I have not felt offended, much less. Unlike. I loved it, "says the also professor at the Polytechnic University of Valencia.
Another point that the disseminator appreciates is that it does not follow the current recurrent, especially "in the science fiction of the 50s", which has "the prototype of mad scientist who wants to destroy the world."
Or the one in which they die even before the initial credits appear, as he read in a study, which claimed that it happened to between 20% and 30% of the scientists who appeared in the movies.
In addition, 'The Big Bang Theory' has had the presence of real characters, such as Stephen Hawking or Nobel Laureate George Smooth, something that Mulet contributes to "give visibility to people who are doing science really." For this reason, and for many other reasons, he believes that "scientific dissemination is having a good time", although only "if it is assumed that it will never be able to compete with 'Save me' or with other types of programs." "The presence in the mainstream media is almost ridiculous. Apart from 'Órbita Laika', do we hear any other program? "Asks the chemist, who says that once" a crazy idea has come out of social networks to make a kind of scientific 'talent show' in which the winner give him a scholarship ». «But that is frivolizing. What we have to have is a good system for funding science, and that whoever wants to investigate is given the opportunities and options, "he concludes, and warns that he would not mind, if he has time, to be a consultant or reviewer. the scripts of a series similar to the one that ends.
