Big Bang Theory: The Complete Eighth Season (DVD)
Prepare to enter the eighth dimension of television’s perpetual laughter continuum as THE BIG BANG THEORY boldly crosses the frontiers of science and comedy. Doctors Hofstadter & Cooper remain socially challenged, but the two genius roommates and their friends always produce hilarious results. With Leonard finally engaged to girl-across-the-hall Penny after countless proposals, the possibilities for happiness seem endless…while the probability for laughs is a foregone conclusion. What’s unknown is how this might impact the ironclad “Roommate Agreement” he’s entered into with Sheldon. Add to this, Sheldon’s uncomfortably close relationship with neurobiologist Amy Farrah Fowler, Koothrappali’s newfound ability to talk to and date women, and Howard and Bernadette’s solution to an in-house caretaker (Stuart Bloom) for the always outspoken Mrs. Wolowitz, and the worlds of science and sitcom are about to hilariously collide!]]>

To begin - I have watched this show since day one. I have absorbed everything that the crew has to offer and I have grown with the characters on the show. This season, although decent, felt like the characters weren't themselves. Leonard seems to be getting weaker as a character, even though I felt like overall he was the most interesting. THey make it seem like he simply bows to Penny's every wim.. while also bowing to Sheldon's every wim.. it's like he has become the "b----" character of the group instead of the interesting one. Raj is a helpless horndog, Howard has become whiny at every turn and overly jealous of Stewart to the point of being excessive, and Sheldon seems confused on what direction they want to take his character.
I still enjoyed the season, but I would like to see the characters return to form and progress in a more natural path instead of just randomly jumping around.
The eighth season follows the lives of seven friends, living in California, as they go through the trials and tribulations of life, work, and love. Penny is looking for a new job and trying to navigate her elevated relationship with Leonard. Meanwhile, Amy and Sheldon are working on taking their relationship to the next level while Sheldon is re-evaluating his career change. Raj has a new girlfriend and is now trying to balance both her and the rest of his friends. Bernadette and Howard are working their way through the marital “bliss” while keeping their careers alive.
This season has 24 episodes, spaced between 3 discs, which flow smoothly from one to the next. Every episode will make you laugh at least once and they all continue building on the series as a whole. This season will also make you cry multiple times because of how attached you get to the characters and their relationships.
I bought this season because I started watching The Big Bang Theory when it first aired eight years ago and I got hooked. I got attached to the characters and became addicted to watching it. Getting attached to the characters is easy because every character has some trait that you can also see in yourself. For me, it was the social awkwardness of Sheldon mixed with the brain of Amy and the sarcastic nature of Leonard. This season is ideal for those who just want to go home after school or work, sit back, relax, and laugh because all discs have a play all option. You wouldn’t have to move for hours, unless you chose to do so.
If this sounds like a show that interests you, Friends is another, similar show, which you might appreciate. If this does not sound interesting to you, then there are many other shows that might interest you like Criminal Minds or Bar Rescue.
On the DVD, the Blue Ray picture is noticeably better than the regular DVD. I also enjoyed the gag reel that comes on the disk.
