Althea (Vernee Watson) was a character featured in both pilots and the first series episode.
On the evolution of the show, Chuck Lorre said, "We did the 'Big Bang Pilot' about two and a half years ago, and it sucked ...
but there were two remarkable things that worked perfectly, and that was Johnny and Jim.
We rewrote the thing entirely and then we were blessed with Kaley and Simon and Kunal." As to whether the world will ever see the original pilot on a future DVD release, Lorre said, "Wow, that would be something. Show your failures..." Production was halted on November 6, 2007, due to the Writers Guild of America strike.
Nearly three months later, on February 4, 2008, the series was temporarily replaced by a short-lived sitcom, Welcome to the Captain.
