The Big Bang Theory

The creators, Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, and cast, Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar, of the CBS hit "The Big Bang Theory" dorked it out in Room 6CDEF during Friday's Con. To make things uber dorktastic, Adam Savage, of MythBusters fame, was there to moderate the event!

Season 2 is still in the skeletal phases of being planned out, but nonetheless the show is coming back this fall. Huzzah! A special reel put together just for Comic Con was shown before the panel -- it was basically a highlight of the most nerdiest moments in the show. O_o Savage also introduced the audience to a fully animated music video to aid the show's theme song performed by the Barenaked Ladies.

Sorry, no clip of that. We weren't allowed to record any of those snippets and I wasn't about to risk having my camera smashed to bits!

But here's a clip of something that was in the reel:

The good news is, everyone was allowed to record the panel, and I have a few videos for y'all to peep. Woot! Enjoy. n_n

Here, the creators and cast are asked to raise their hand to any nerdy thing that related to them. The question asked at the beginning was about having a real light saber and wondering what it would be like.

Jim Parsons (Sheldon) is asked about his character's infamous t-shirts. The casts' chemistry is also discussed.

Everyone on panel is asked about their geek credibility.
