Big Bang Theory, The: The Complete Seventh Season (DVD)
Doctors Leonard Hofstadter & Sheldon Cooper (Johnny Galecki & Jim Parsons) are brilliant physicists – masterminds of their CalTech laboratories, but socially challenged in the non-theoretical real world. Enter beautiful, street-smart neighbor, the actress/waitress Penny (Kaley Cuoco), who aims to teach them a thing or two about life. Despite their on-again, off-again relationship in the past, Leonard believes he’s found true love with Penny. Even Sheldon has grown comfortable with a female companion, entering into a signed “Relationship Agreement” with neurobiologist Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik). In their free time, Leonard and Sheldon continue to enjoy weekly trips to the comic book store and fantasy role-playing games with their ever-expanding universe of friends, including fellow scientists Rajesh Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar), Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg), and Howard’s microbiologist wife, Bernadette (Melissa Rauch).]]>

Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur....
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.
UPDATE MAY 18, 2014
I never did get around to calling Amazon; however I recently check it out again and apparently the problem has been resolved. As promised, I have updated my rating to five stars.
This particular season was full of huge moments for most of the gang (don't worry, no spoilers here). There's follow-up from Raj's big revelation at the end of season seven. Sheldon was ripped forcibly from his comfort zone repeatedly, and eventually decides to make a big move because of it. The last few episodes, while funny, put tears in my eyes several times and proved that this comedy series has believable enough characters that I can sympathize with them and root for them. I can't wait for season eight -- so much is up in the air, and I want to see where everyone lands! And if we'll ever see Howard's mom (call it morbid curiosity on my part).
Complaints I have seen that I disagree with:
"Watch it without a laugh track, it isn't as funny." - Not true... the jokes they come up with are very clever and funny. No laugh track? I laugh when friends repeat the jokes in real life. Or just thinking about the jokes sometimes I'll chuckle to myself. They are just funny. If you aren't laughing... maybe you just aren't smart enough to get it? Or just don't have a sense of humor...
"The story is just repeating itself." (i.e. people complain about Penny and Leonard breaking up and getting back together and characters not changing, etc... WHAT? Do these people even watch the show? First. Leonard and Penny have only actually broken up and got back together one time... They had the one date in the first season, that doesn't count... they dated, broke up, got back together and are now getting married... I just think people like to complain sometimes... On top of that, the character progression over the years has been incredible. All of the characters have grown in one way or another by a ton. Compare them now to what they were when they first came on the show and every one of them are quite a bit different. So basically this complaint is just dumb...
"They get so much stuff wrong when it comes to the academics and other references." - Also not entirely true... while I admit they take liberties with things, the math, the science, etc is usually pretty much right. They even pay a physicist to ensure this... If you find things wrong, you are nitpicking or are wrong yourself. And really if you are complaining about this... get over it, it is a tv show after all. Same goes with most pop culture references. They totally change a few things for purposes of the show but the way they talk about them and do things with them are pretty realistic.
"I just don't like it or find it funny." - Okay... this is a valid complaint. You need to find a personality and/or sense of humor but hey... it is your opinion and you are entitled to it.
So if you are a Big Bang Theory fan. It doesn't get worse or better, it stays the same awesome show. If not, why would you be reading this review anyway!
Memorable episodes include a scavenger hunt that Raj puts on for the gang and the Thanksgiving episode where it is discovered that Penny accidentally married her ex-boyfriend, Zack, in Las Vegas, and Leonard works quickly to get it annulled. The characters continue to grow and change, change so much according to Sheldon that he needs to leave for a while to figure things out and this is the subject of the finale.
It was a good season and though the dynamics have changed considerably from seasons 1-3, the show is still one of the best on television.
