Original, weird, poetic... these titles might not be immediately accessible for non-native English speakers, because of their use of American idioms, common sayings or jargon, but let's face it, they sound so unique, catchy and cool.

Now, which of these idiomatic TV series' titles sounds the coolest?

"Orange Is The New Black".
BTW, "The Big Bang Theory" is not an idiom. The theory is actually known by that name.

I had my doubts but isn't the expression used to describe something of a similar effect, I mean a 'big thing that started out of nothing'?

Not in this case because the title sequence clearly shows that it is in reference to the scientific theory
