Big Bang Theory, The: The Complete Seventh Season (Blu-ray+DVD+UltraViolet)
Socially challenged they remain, but the scientific geniuses of The Big Bang Theory always deliver hilarious results. Leonard returns from his North Sea expedition to find that his relationship with Penny involves more beta-testing than he’s ever done in a lab. Howard’s attachment issues with the women in his life in particular and Raj’s social breakthrough with women in general provide more laughs. Bernadette and Amy stand staunchly by the men in their life, even when they’re sitting in marathon role-playing games. Sheldon sees his mom (Laurie Metcalf) in a totally different way, parties with James Earl Jones, establishes a (sort of) bond with his idol Professor Proton (Emmy® winner Bob Newhart) and makes a scientific breakthrough that breaks down before you can say Science Friday. Experience your own humor breakthrough with this 3-disc, 24-episode Season Seven set of TV’s most popular comedy.]]>

Seriously, I caught the very first episode despite the stupid ad campaign about the nerds finally "getting the pretty chick," the stereotypical dumb blonde at that. I fell in love instantly. There's a reason Jim Parsons won his 3rd Emmy of just 6 seasons: he's hilarious. Sheldon could SO easily have gone the other way, being too mean-spirited and arrogant to like while the other characters just rotate around him, frustrated and sad. But he gets put in his place...no, not his spot...enough to keep a lid on. His comedic timing is unparalleled. Howard used to be my least favorite character but he's really grown on me. I was happy to read that in real life Kunal Nayyar, Raj, has married a beautiful woman in an enormous traditional wedding in India; it takes the edge off feeling sorry for him that he can only attract girls like poor Lucy. Mayim Bialik, Amy, is really a neurobiologist. I love seeing Kaley Cuoco on TV commercials with Captain Kirk...er William Shatner...or as a wish-granting genie. And hosting the awards shows. I love seeing Johnny Galecki's old cast-mates from Roseanne on the show; Laurie Metcalf is a hoot (as she would say) as Sheldon's mom. (The only character I dislike is Leonard's mom played by Christine Baranski...but you can't have everything.)
My husband, son and I "Big Bangalize" every Thursday. We throw in a pizza and I record the show on DVR. At 7:15 we eat and start watching so we can skip the commercials (sorry CBS). My son just went to college and he's got his dorm-mates watching it to carry on the tradition.
The cast couldn't have the perfect timing it does but for the good direction and writing...ah...the good writing. There are very few throw-away scenes and I like that the show flows as well as Friends did with 2 or 3 story arcs involving 2-4 characters in each episode. So one plotline never drags down any episode. Of course, like Friends, the best scenes are when all 6 are together. Guest stars involving Star Trek: Levar Burton, Will Wheaton, Brent Spiner, Leonard Nimoy's voice; Stephen Hawking; Stan Lee; Howie Mandel. I just sorta hope they never really show Mrs. Wolowitz.
Everybody started reviewing Season 6 before it was released as well so you got to see no discussion of the special features. I just pre-ordered Season 7 and will revise this review once I've seen the special features. The 1st and 2nd seasons' were fairly lame. They perked up in Seasons 3-5 and on the first disc of Season 6, they got into Howard's space odyssey with real astronaut Mike Massimono as well as speaking directly with a current astronaut on the space station. Did you hear they had a drawing to send a fan of the show into space? (Assuming NASA is back in business by then.)
I could go on and on about this top-notch comedy but I don't want to belabor Sheldon-like OCD.
Just watch it.
TRIVIA: what is Penny's last name?
Answer in Comment below.
Caricature rather then character development.
I fear that the success of this show reflects the low level of the American character. Has our educational system been such a failure that we're still listening to laugh tracks....being led to believe something is funny and now it's time to laugh? I want my money back from Amazon on demand for my foolish purchase of this pathetic arrogance!
I give it a two star rating to avoid being too harsh and expecting more from an award winning show....but honestly.....one star at best!
