    A hilarious take on geek life.

    Big Bang Theory is a wet-your-pants funny show, especially if you're into geek culture. Expect episodes to contain several clever references or shout-outs to video games, comic books, famous scientists, authors, and more. Even if you're not a veteran of all that is nerdy, the show often lets its viewers in on the more obscure references, usually in the form of the main characters explaining something to a non-geek. The show follows three young scientists (and their blond neighbor), detailing their struggles in their social, romantic, and professional lives. All of the characters are very distinct, and you'll quickly find yourself loving (or loving to hate) each one of them. The writing is snappy and the punchlines are well-timed. It tends to avoid lowbrow humor, though that doesn't mean the naughtier subjects are never tackled. I was hooked after just one episode, and frankly, if you don't find this series funny then you must have something in common with Sheldon Cooper (the antagonist of the show).

    Hysterical Show

    Our family loves this show but we came into it late. We missed out on the first two seasons and wanted to catch up. My husband is a nerd and I'm kind of nerdy myself. We find that some of the humor hits close to home, but we can laugh at ourselves and usually are laughing hysterically while watching the show. We love all the characters and are constantly amazed at how the actors make them believable. A little more adult humor than is necessary. For the most part the language is okay, but occasionally they throw out a word or two that seem a bit crude. I think they could get the message across without being quite so "to the point". My kids like to watch the show, but occasionally it's a bit embarassing with some of the comments. It's still better than most of the junk on TV today. Wouldn't recommend this show for little kids. Younger kids wouldn't understand half of the dialogue (too nerdy, i.e. large words and scientific terminology) and wouldn't need to hear the occasional crude reference. Other than that it is a really funny show.

    Maybe not the Best but the First

    Big Bang is a big bang in its eighth season. When it began there were not all these complications that were developed and the humor was sophisticated. Much of that has disappeared. What made this series is it took pot shots at the intellectuals as to their lack of street sense. Penny was not the sophisticated understanding cheesecake girl that she is now. She was just plain stupid and the intellectuals made mistake after mistake in every day things trying to outwit everyone around them while Penny watched in amazement. A much better series in the beginning.

    I grew up in the 70s and am of the first generation that had video games and Dungeons and Dragons to form our personalities, as we entered our adulthood. I can relate to the group of characters on this show because my friends were exactly like them and we enjoyed everything they enjoy. This also means that I get all the jokes. That makes this just about the best show to come along in many years, for me. If you like nerdy humor, this show is for you!

    My kids got me into watching this, and I was happy to find several seasons (including this one) for a great price at BestBuy.com. When my order arrived, I was surprised to discover that two of the discs were missing, as well as the little hinged insert that holds discs 1 and 2 in the case. However, I contacted customer service, and they sent out a new one within a few hours. It arrived 2 days later, and in perfect condition.

    A nerd masterpiece

    I love this show. I must admit, I am a nerd at heart and love that this show is all about four nerdy friends and their blond neighbor. This show is heavy on the math, science and comic book references/jokes but I know many of my non-nerd friends love it as well. The characters, especially Sheldon, are just so bizarre and hilarious that you can't help but laugh. If you haven't watched this show yet I suggest you tune in!

    I bought this season to replace the DVD sets I already have for the season play mode and better visuals. I am note sure of anyone who has not heard of this show, but i think it works for the characters because most of the story lines are fairly mundane sitcom stuff but seeing how these characters react to them are what works in this show.
