Leonard and Sheldon are brilliant physicists -- geniuses in the laboratory, but socially challenged everywhere else. Enter their beautiful, street-smart neighbor, Penny, 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 and they have finally gotten engaged. Even Sheldon has found a female companion, entering into a "Relationship Agreement" with neurobiologist Amy Farrah Fowler, who recently asked him to take a break because she is frustrated with how slowly their relationship is progressing. In their free time, Leonard and Sheldon continue to enjoy frequent trips to the comic book store and fantasy role-playing games with their ever-expanding universe of friends, including fellow scientists Raj, Howard and Howard's adorable microbiologist wife, Bernadette.
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!

As far as the show is concerned, as long as it's popular and making money we can expect more.
When Charlie Sheen left Two and a Half Men I stopped buying. The changes that followed simply didn't appeal, and, apart from anything else, it had become Two Men, neither of whom I found funny.
If you now no longer find TBBT as appealing, as it was don't buy it.
Given that Howard would only ever marry someone who'd replace his (s)mother it wasn't surprising that the writers came up with Bernadette - irritating voice and all. And as for Bernadette, who better than someone she could dominate?
Amy experiments on animals with no regard for any suffering inflicted, and, until she befriended Penny and Bernadette was probably as hirsute as the animals she used. Being as emotionally and socially dysfunctional as Sheldon it was inevitable that only he would prove an acceptable mate.
Penny's liking for alcohol (which, in real life might make her somewhat fatter) aligned with her many past relationships might make Leonard an unlikely mate, unless it's a case of opposites attracting especially given her somewhat 'neutral' comments regarding his abilities in the bedroom.
The possibility of making Raj gay seem to have been put aside, although if Howard and Bernadette were to divorce...
Not every sitcom is able to maintain the highest standards throughout (Frasier, Seinfeld to name but two) but as long as you feel connection with the characters, however unlikeable in real life, you'll probably like what you're getting for the price.
Shame about the damaged Disc.
Costing it 2 stars, or 4 if that didn't mean I hated the Series.
The Season 10 ones look fine,
New viewers are better off starting with season one, since there's a fair amount of back story built up by now.
Episodes run 17-18 mins [approx].
Language and subtitle options are as follows:
Languages; English, Castilian Spanish, French.
Subtitles: English, Castilian Spanish, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Norwegian, Swedish.
Picking up from where the last season left off, this one begins with Leonard and Penny on the way to get married. And dealing with past indiscretions at the same time. Plus Sheldon and Amy are no longer together. Nobody's life will be the same again...
Those who want the show to be the same as it was in the first three years with nothing ever changing will once again be disappointed by this season. As it keeps on allowing the characters to grow, develop, and change. But others, even though you may go into this every year wondering how much longer it will run for, will come away pleasantly surprised, by what is a really strong season.
It may perhaps now get by on people's affection for these characters, but the show is still a very well oiled machine where everyone knows exactly what they are doing, and thus the hit rate of the funny lines is still highly strong. But allowing character growth and people's affection for them allows it to very nicely mix genuine emotional character moments with the humour also.
The season opener, whilst still funny at a lot of points, doesn't quite get the balance between these two right. As it does have to set up a lot. But after that, the season does this all really well. The Amy Sheldon situation giving it a really strong spine for almost the first half. The Leonard and Penny situation does give two characters who perhaps didn't have much other places to go a little more strength to them.
There are emotional character moments during all these that work so well that they make for some very strong scenes indeed.
This situation doesn't last forever, but the season does manage to keep going nicely after that by adding other ongoing plotlines as well that develop very nicely.
There's a great use of recurring cast members, allowing us to see some who haven't been around for a while. And best of all there's double the usual amount of Kripke appearances.
The writers solve the problem of not really knowing what to do with Emily by only using her occasionally. And she does come over quite nice and likeable when you do get to see her. And Stuart works fine as a semi regular rather than regular as well, although you do keep wishing they would let him finally catch a break.
The episodes do seem to get ever shorter, though, so there is precious little time for whole group related scenes. But whilst it is now perhaps more focused on the relationships, science and comics and movies do still get quite a good look in.
A very solid season in the end. And a very fun watch.
Dvd extras are:
Disc one: 2015 comic con panel. The usual look at the writer's answering questions. This one doesn't stick in the mind as much as some, but even so even at twenty five minutes it does feel too short. It is totally worth it for a fun take on of fan fiction.
Disc two: Ask BBT: Who will get the couch/who will go to Mars. Two featurettes, four and five mins each, with cast members answering viewer questions. Both are a bit short but quite fun watches.
The big bang theory gives back: three minutes all about a scholarship programme the show funds. Short but interesting.
Love is rocket science. Ten minutes of the cast discussing character romance lives. A nice watch.
The big 200! A five minute long feature about the 200th episode. Which manages to avoid being self congratulatory and also be quite nice viewing.
Gag reel: eight minutes of outtakes. The show's gag reels do tend to be some of the best around, full of geniunely funny outtakes rather than people being silly for the sake of it. And this one is no exception.
If ever you feel a little down, put an episode or 6 of this on and giggle your way out of the mood! I love having a physical copy of the season so that I can play the episodes whenever I want.
