    As a "Star Wars" & "Indiana Jones" fan I was a late bloomer to the show. Started watching it when the repeats started airing in 2011. My favorite episode is in season 4 what I call "the Raiders" episode. The 5th season is good, but NOT nearly the best. I consider the 4th season the best. As a "Star Wars" & "Indiana Jones" fan I want to know why not one actor from any of those films have been on. 2 favorite episodes in season 5: episode 19 "The Weekend Vortex" & 20 "The Transporter Malfunction". Now, I am going to stick up for "Star Trek" fans here. Episode 5 “The Russian Rocket Reaction’ is another Wil Wheaton episode BUT the blu ray/DVD package does not mention Brent Spiner. And, of course episode 20. Leonard Nimoy has been mentioned in more than one episode in the series, my favorite when Penny gives Sheldon the autographed napkin. So, having him do the voice of the “Spock” action figure was great. BUT, he got NO MENTION in the credits or the blu ray/DVD episode list like Spiner. I did feel the season finale about the wedding was a let down. You normally get surprises in finales & season openers, so episode 1 of season 6 should be fantastic to make up for the "no surprises" season 5 finale. Normal, good extras in the packages. You have 2 blu ray disc & 3 DVD disc in this. Looking forward to season 6.

    Not the best, but better than most.

    The first season of this show was great. Finally, a show that didn't completely rely on s*x and f*rt jokes. How I miss those days. While the show still occasionally shows it's brilliant roots, we're now reduced to jokes about Sheldon not understanding euphimisms. The pros: New female characters. Episodes focusing on the supporting characters. Cons: In an effort to reach as wide an audience as possible (and I understand that this is what they need to do in order to continue making money; doesn't mean I have to like it) they've dumbed this show down so much that 50% of the jokes wouldn't be out of place on any countless other sitcoms, which is a shame.

    The series continues. This season has quite a few character developments for the side characters and features more screen time for some of less featured friends. Raj benefits from the most attention and Amy isn't just creepy around Penny. Leonard and Penny are at their best when they are together. My biggest disappointment was Sheldon, who really seems to be regressing on his behavior and lacks the intellectual punch we are used to. We also have seen so much of Bernadette and Howard, that this season dials back a little of that attention, but we still seem to focus a bit too much on their arc.

    Sitcom with refreshing (nerd) humor

    I caught this show in the middle of the fourth season after it became syndicated on TBS. I never really give sitcoms a chance. They're usually filled with bad jokes, horrible acting, and tacky story lines. But this show surprised me. It is still more or less a typical sitcom but the acting is excellent (Jim Parsons has won many Emmys for his role of Sheldon) and the jokes speak to me personally being an uber-nerd as I am. Most people who have never watched Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, etc. won't get a majority of them and I love that. If you find a true fan of this show then you know you've found a closet nerd as well. Enjoy.

    In a world where most "humor" is composed primarily of adolescent or body humor, this series stands head and shoulders above the rest. Well written characters and hilarious plots make Big Bang Theory one of the only currently running sitcoms I find worth watching. Perhaps a group of super intelligent, socially awkward geeks would not amuse some, but I find this show to be very entertaining. Having the series on DVD so you can watch it whenever you need a smile is fantastic.

    The Best Comedy on TV Today

    Big Bang Theory continues it's winning streak of being one of the best comedies on TV today. The developing relationships between all the guys and girls has really helped add a new dimension to the comedy making it better each season as it progresses. Jim Parson's as Sheldon continues to give of the best comedic performances on TV.

    The Big Bang Theory stands as one of the only live actions shows I bother to watch and keep up with. The characters are all funny, and I easily enjoy watching reruns on TV. It's become a great bonding show between me and my family. I highly recommend this show to any naysayers that think it's nothing but hype.

    Season 5 picks right up in the show and just continues to hit all the right notes. I've been a big fan of this show since the first season and am still watching. Great thing with the seasons is its a show that doesn't demand that you watch every episode. You can pretty much pick a random one, sit back, and enjoy!
