Best season since season 2 and 3 (minor spoilers),
This review is from: The Big Bang Theory: Season 6 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This year, TBBT became a ratings phenomenon, reaching the 20 million viewer mark when "The Bakersfield Expedition" first aired. That was one of my top episodes. Now, with all the nerdy stuff that STILL is in the show, I don't understand why people still have such a problem with it. Amy and Bernadette are STAYING. The girls have given the show new life and the show would've dropped off and tanked at the end of season 3. At least, unlike season 5, Amy stopped with her "lesbian" comments towards Penny. There's still plenty of nerd stuff. And people still complain. They are never satisfied. Also, Amy and Bernadette are female SCIENTISTS.
The season started off kind of subpar with Howard floating around in space, apparently miserable and the butt of the other astronauts jokes. There were a few funny moments but glad they didn't stretch it out too long. Sheldon says "He went to space a boy and returns a boy-sized hero," followed by Howard screaming like a little girl as they plunge back down to Earth. Poor guy didn't get the welcome back that he really wanted, and also, wouldn't shut up about being in space either. The show picked up again in that very episode with a guys vs. girls game night which was hysterical. We had a stretch of superb episodes after that, like Stuart's Halloween party, (and Leonard showing Penny an awesome hologram in the lab) Sheldon and Howard fighting over Sheldon's parking space that he never uses, Penny teaching Howard how to fish and put a worm on a hook, Howard and Raj trying to figure out Sheldon's secret routine in a room in the university basement, and of course, the guys going to a comic convention in Bakersfield, and stopping in the same field that they shot the original Star Trek TV series--dressed as the principal characters, and getting their car stolen. And the Bob Newhart episode, where he plays Sheldon and Leonard's childhood TV idol "Professor Proton." And in 2 episodes, we are introduced to the university's human resources lady, Mrs. Davis, who's African American, and Sheldon makes a few racist comments and gives her a few very inappropriate gifts (he's obviously unaware of how bad these things are) while buttering her up to get picked for the open tenure position. And of course, there were many other great episodes, but those are my top season 6 ones.
Also, Amy and Sheldon's "relationship" starts to open up a bit more, and Sheldon makes a very shocking statement, that it's a possibility that he'll sleep with Amy someday. Penny's reaction is priceless. Howard finally moves out of his mutha's house, and Raj meets a girl who's also socially awkward. And Penny goes back to community college, to prove to Leonard that she's not stupid.
All in all, this season has been EXCELLENT. Many people agree it's been the best one since season 2 or 3. The show recently cleaned up pretty good at the Critics Choice Awards, and hopefully will win even more awards in the future. After what was season 6, they definitely will.
