The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Ninth Season (BD) (BD)
Prepare to enter phase nine of television’s perpetual laughter experiment as THE BIG BANG THEORY successfully fuses the elements of science and sitcom. Our two genius roommates – Leonard and Sheldon ¬– and their friends are back once again (smarter, but no wiser). Last season, Sheldon went soul-searching (on a train, of course) and was prepared to make some substantial revisions on his Relationship Agreement with Amy, when everything changed. Leonard, meanwhile, was off to Vegas with Penny to finally tie the knot in the season finale. Howard finds himself alone with Bernadette after the sudden passing of his mother; while Raj is not only talking to women – he’s getting exclusive with Emily (Laura Spencer). Together, they will all learn that life is far more complicated outside of the lab as love and friendship never produce predictable results!]]>

But things are definitely changing.
Sheldon is the biggest change. He's gotten a lot more human. That actually makes sense because he's been surrounded by social people for 8 plus years now. Even Sheldon would have had to pick up a thing or two. And as much as I love the season 1 Sheldon, that act would have gotten completely old by now had his character not expanded a little. He's still Sheldon, but Amy has softened him up a bit. This season he's dealing with Amy breaking up with him because their relationship was going no where. The comedy is that Sheldon in 30 years old and is going through dating and breakups for the first time so he's reacting to it like normal people do when they are 16. It's funny.
Leonard hasn't changed much since the beginning. But his relationship with Penny has. It continues to evolve, and I'm not sure I like it anymore. It was fun watching them in the first few seasons realizing they liked each other. But now they don't seem to like each other. The season starts where season 8 ended, with them headed to Vegas to get married. (I won't tell you what happens) But I can't help but feel like they shouldn't get married. They are already an old boring couple who doesn't seem to like each other. There is ZERO chemistry between them.
I'm still enjoying the Howard and Bernadette marriage. That was a good change for the show. Howard would have become insufferable by now in his original form. The marriage works well for the show. These two have on screen chemistry and great comic timing with one another.
With Raj starting to get more social and having been able to talk to women without being drunk for several seasons now, Stuart has taken over the role as the lovable pathetic loser on the show. That starts getting pushed harder at the start of season 9.
If I started watching this show in season 9 I don't think I'd like it. But I'm invested in the characters at this point so I love seeing how they continue to develop.
What really makes the show fun and unique is Sheldon and now Stuart. These two are both so funny and goofy it's really what makes the show work in my opinion. And I like Leonard as the "semi-normal" one that holds it all together. I'm so glad they broke Sheldon and Amy up. The episodes that focused on their relationship were some of the worst to watch. I fear next season the writers will put them back together and have them married in the series finale, but the show is much funner with them apart.
It's a shame these don't come with DVDs anymore. I know DVD is a dying format, but it'd still be nice to have that option; I would've ordered that. We have only one Blu-ray player in the house, but multiple DVD players hooked up to TVs without streaming, so it'd be nice to have as many different formats as possible.
As for the show, you get everything there in easy-to-use menus and navigation. Getting the digital versions was also painless, so my wife can watch them on her phone or iPad when she wishes.
