I have read some of the reviews (in particular, the ones that are not too positive) and I have to say: It still makes me laugh out loud... :-) OK, this season has several week episodes: The back-and-forth episodes at the beginning of the second disk are pretty boring. Seems that they did not really have something for a complete episode, so these are just patchworks of small bits and pieces. But the first episodes and the last about eight are really fun to watch
One big point of discussion seems to be: Not enough science. Too much personal life. I do not care too much that the focus of the series has changed. People change. Repetition is boring. My other two beloved series (House, Monk) really got boring when it got to the fifth season. Because nothing changed. Just more of the same. Only different.
I am a scientist (somewhere between Sheldon and Bernadette in discipline) and I *love* to see good jokes about the scientific part of their lives. But we had loads of great, great jokes on that front that at least I will never forget ("Geology is not a real science!", and the spherical sheep in vacuum joke, and the dark side of the moon). But people from science should be allowed to have a personal life, to change, to develop. (Sorry for my bad English.) And the focus on the more personal stuff is just cool because otherwise, it would get repetitious. Leslie was great, but only for some time. Kripke is definitely great, but I would not want his rhotacism (just got that from Wikipedia) in every episode -- it is only this funny. So, yeah: If you love the characters, and if you think that "a little different" can still be good, then the fifth season is good for you. Full stop.

Here in box set, spread over three discs, are all twenty four episodes of the fifth season of popular sitcom the Big Bang Theory. All about two brilliant but nerdy physicists, their worldly wise next door neighbour, and their friends.

As ever, each episode runs from eighteen to twenty minutes.

The dvd has the following language and subtitle options:

Languages: English, Castilian Spanish, French.

Subtitles: English, Castilian Spanish, Dutch, French, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish.

Many of the episodes stand alone, but there are linking themes this year. Sheldon and Amy's relationship continues to develop. After a fashion. Howard and Bernadette's wedding approaches. As he gets the chance to go the international space station. Raj remains so very lonely. And there are changes for Leonard and Penny also.

Fans of the show have split into two camps by this point in the run. There are those who think the show has lost something from the early days with the addition of more characters and more focus on relationship based storylines rather than science/nerd ones. Or those who love it no matter what. The former may not be entirely pleased by this season. The latter won't have a problem.

The show does do very well to fit all the cast in each week, given the length of the episodes - Bernadette is only missing from two and Amy is only missing from three - but after a couple of excellent opening episodes the first half of the run does produce a lot that are merely very good rather than great. These tend to be ones that have two plotlines a week, and in these the whole cast won't always be together for any point of it.

Take the snooty perfectionism of Niles from 'Frasier' and crank it up a good few notches; add a generous helping of Dustin Hoffman's Rain Man, including the lack of social skills; sprinkle liberally with the abrasive haughtiness of Doc Martin; add a twist of both Kenneth Williams from the 'Carry On' films and Julian Clary; then top with a light dusting of Mr. Bean ...

The result is Sheldon Cooper, gifted theoretical physicist and geek extraordinaire, as arrogant, self-centred and narcissistic as he is childlike and loveable, and who is undoubtedly one of the finest comedy characters of all time - so much so that even the way he knocks on the door is hilarious!

Sheldon is what makes this brilliant sitcom really shine, but he is also aided and abetted by a motley ensemble of fellow geeks: the neurotic Raj, who can't talk to women without first necking some alcohol (and who reminds me of the hilarious 'Indian Keith' in 'Celebrity Juice'); the sleazy and sex-obsessed Howard, who, despite now being engaged, still lives with his belligerent, overbearing mother; and Leonard, who is just as pathetic as the rest of them, but who is their link to Penny, the 'blonde across the hall', and the world of 'normal people'.

This series also sees the return of extreme oddball Amy Farrah Fowler, who, despite being Sheldon's girlfriend (though he's loath to admit it), seems to have taken quite a shine to Penny; and Howard's chipmunk-like yet feisty wife-to-be Bernadette, who may prove to be quite a match for his loud-mouthed mother.
