The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Ninth Season (DVD)
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!]]>

Now that I've addressed the technical issues, on to the show itself.
I love the show! I haven't laughed so hard or so often since season 1. I was beginning to think the show had jumped the shark in season 8, but so far, season 9 is fresh and funny. I will agree with some other reviewers that the nerdy/science based humor of early seasons is sadly lacking as the series has evolved. There are occasional moments that harken back to the earliest seasons, but they're few and far between now. BBT is more sitcom than nerdy sitcom now. Having said that, it's still funny.
Original 1 star review.
The problem with buying DVD's vs. renting episodes via Comcast etc. is that the DVD's can sometimes be faulty, That's what happened here.
We didn't start watching episodes on these discs until a few weeks after we got the DVDs, so we passed the window to return the item to Amazon.
The first few episodes played well but starting with episode 4, the program would stop cold dead for many seconds at a time. The disc itself looks fine - no blemishes, fingerprints, scratches etc. Thinking it may just be one faulty disc, I tried disc 2. That disc wouldn't even load the menu. Is it the DVD player? I don't think so. I just breezed through a 3 disc set of a mini series without a hiccup.
We love the show and have watched seasons 1-8 on DVD without incident. But if you buy season 9 on DVD, don't wait to verify if the discs actually work.
Raj is my favorite character. He has really developed over the course of the show's run.
Seriously, I highly recommend this show. And not because I found an inner voice inside my own head that at times would shout out, "That's me! I'm Sheldon", only to become Penny or Howard in the next episode. Or Koothrapali. My first love was astronomy.
I find the references to science solid for the most part, often causing me to research a trivial piece here or there. But what really gets me every time is how I see so much of the funny stuff happening all around me, all the time, in people that don't even realize what they're doing! The insecurities, the quirks, the foibles... They're all there. Ten times over. And that's what makes it all the funnier.
I've heard it said that if you super-concentrate the scent of a skunk, it becomes an attractive perfume ingredient. Go look that up. I do know that when you charge 10 times the funny stuff into a 20-25 minute comedy episode, it gets really really funny. I don't think there's a single episode that didn't make me guffaw aloud throughout the seasons.
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.
