Kaley Cuoco Listed Her Worst Plotline From The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory’s brilliant narrative involving a bunch of science geeks and a stunning wannabe actor became one of the most-watched sitcoms owing to its characterization and razor-sharp humor. Kaley Cuoco who was an integral part of the ensemble, confessed that not all aspects of the narrative impressed her. The actor elaborated on Season 7 and the Serial Apeist episode which followed her character’s arc as a struggling small-town beauty who aspires to make it big in Hollywood.

“The worst experience was filming Serial Apeist and getting covered in hair from head to toe,” she says. “I was like, ‘Really, you guys? This is what’s happening?’ And Chuck (Lorre) just thought it was so funny. He loved it. I never understood why.”
