Regarding the opposite sex, they're on a steep learning curve. In every other sense, they're geniuses. Join physicists Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) as they ponder black holes, chemical deviations, girls, and other mysteries of the universe in all 24 phenomenally funny episode of the Season Five. With Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and Leonard's relationship in uncharted terrain, Sheldon, Howard (Simon Helberg), and Raj (Kunal Nayyar) discover that the feminine mystique is something that cannot be easily graphed or calculated. As they muddle through relationship "bugs" and romance re-launches, they also discover it's nothing a good roll of the D&D dice or a paintball tournament can't solve.
Please Note: As per the detail page the package contains five discs in it, but there is no Disc number 4 & Disc number 5. There are Blu-Ray discs 1 & 2 and DVD discs 1, 2 & 3.

I remember when I first heard of this show before the pilot it was billed as "two nerds get the pretty girl." Ah what a disservice that advertising was!!
We watch each new episode repeatedly, I buy every DVD set that comes out, and then we Big-Bang-alize in marathon sessions off-season.
Don't stop at Season 5. You must MUST get all seasons!
Addictive as it undeniably is in its current incarnation, the show in some ways almost seems an evolutionary throwback to the 1990s when episode plots were largely self-contained and the laugh track reigned supreme. It's not hard to see how the show's creators could have made the show into something more adventurous a la Firefly or the original Arrested Development: the short lifespans of both shows probably explain why they didn't. One can't help but wonder what sort of mischief the talented BBT ensemble might have gotten themselves into if given the less constrictive canvas of online-only media to work with: a looser, more improv-driven style seems like a better fit for the show's spirit and is presumably much easier to make work financially via online streaming. Amazon would do well to snatch up many if not all of the show's actors and down the road give them something they can have a bit more fun with, while doing away with grating vestigial devices such as the laugh track that BBT includes presumably in order to make the show more friendly for syndicated TV.
In this sense the show might be thought of as before its time, if only as an example of what might have been (or still might be) possible had it started now, instead of 7 years ago.
Although Season 6 has a handful of decent episodes, the standard sitcom relationship humor tropes were really starting to overtake the original premise of the show. The supposed geniuses were starting to be seriously dumbed down - depictions of career and nerd hobby pursuits jettisoned to a large extent - to be led around by the nose by their (much wiser) girlfriends in familiar and tired ways. It's only gotten worse in seasons 7 and 8 (so far), which have been unmitigated disasters for fans who enjoyed the original premise of the show. Those who like the earlier seasons of TBBT may want to stop their collection here at season 5. If you really love the show "Friends", pick up seasons 6 and 7 as well.
