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. 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 Koothrappali, Wolowitz and Wolowitz's adorable microbiologist wife, Bernadette.
He’s baaack! Sheldon is retrieved from his soul-searching cross-country train trip (older but no wiser) and that means The Big Bang Theory gang’s all here to spread another year’s cheer as TV’s most attended laugh seminar. Enroll in this comic curriculum to explore Leonard’s minor surgery becoming a major catastrophe for his roommate, Howard’s obsession over his mom’s relationship with retailer-turned-caretaker Stuart, and the peculiar results of Penny’s technique as a pharmaceutical sales rep. Discover ways to recreate proms not attended or holiday celebrations not especially beloved and play a new game based on Raj’s female attachments. Savor online fan fiction by Amy, watch Bernadette take indelicate command of some delicate family matters and who knows, you might even spot a cool Special Guest or two. Be smart – though never as smart as Sheldon – and enjoy all 24-Episodes of the Complete Season Eight of The Big Bang Theory - a Theory worth its weight in fun every time!

If you're reading this and you've not seen the programme before, then go and start with season one. As by now, the amount of continuity and back story means it might not work as a jumping on point if you come in this late.
Regular viewers, read on.
This contains all twenty four episodes of the season, spread across three dvd's. Each episode runs from eighteen to twenty minutes [approx].
The language and subtitle options on the discs are:
Languages: English, Castilian Spanish, French
Subtitles: English, Castilian Spanish, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Norwegian, Swedish.
There are those who say the show isn't as funny as it was in it's first three years, and the introduction of Amy and Bernadette, plus all the resulting character development has caused that.
Those people need to note two things about this season:
1: The first episode begins with Sheldon waking up in bed and saying 'Oh! Everything that happened in the past seven years was just a terrible dream. Good.
Yes, Amy and Bernadette are once again regular characters who are in all the episodes. And the show keeps trying to develop it's characters and move them forward. That's what happens in real life. People grow, change, move on, and sometimes they're not around anymore. This show tries to reflect that. One real life event means that it has no choice but to deal with that fact in this season, and it has to be said that it does it superbly, in a very touching manner.
It does have a good balance, as a season, between the science, the nerdy stuff, and the relationships and character stuff. The season uses Stuart well, keeping him semi regular but giving him situations that make for worthwhile storylines. And ever so slowly, Howard and Bernadette's marriage develops as the former slowly matures. Also as ever, Amy and Sheldon's relationship moves forward gradually. But move forward it does. Jim Parsons doing some of his best work ever as Sheldon does recognise the value of friends and loved ones.
It doesn't really succeed quite so well with Raj's girlfriend Emily. She remains a semi regular, and there's never too much to the character. You really wonder if they know what to do with the character. But we do get to see his parents again for the first time in three years. Which is nice.
But whilst this is a good solid season of a show still at the top of it's game, it's rather like year seven in that whilst all episodes rate at least eight out of ten, and some are good enough to be nine out of ten shows, none of them stick in the mind quite as long as you might wish. That's largely down to the episode length, which does feel a bit too brief at points.
Still, it's a very good season all in all. And whilst this isn't a show that should perhaps run for much longer, it's still delivering the goods whilst it does.
The dvd has the following extras:
2014 comic con panel. The writers and a guest star discuss things and take questions. It runs for twenty seven minutes, but it's a fun watch and the time flies by.
Shooting stars: BBT on BBT. A six minute long feature about Billy Bob Thornton's appearance in one episode. Short but fun.
Constellation prize: Four minutes showing two of the cast and one of the show's creator's on getting stars on the Hollywood walk of Fame. A short but good watch.
Here's to you, Carol Ann Susi: A nine minute long and very touching tribute to a sadly departed semi regular cast member.
It's the BBT superfans!: Eleven minute long look at the trip winners of a contest got to make to the set. Which ends up being very enjoyable viewing.
Gag reel: six minutes of outtakes. As ever, a consistently good lot of these. Most such reels are people forgetting dialogue and pulling silly faces, but the Big Bang Theory always manages to make even the former funny.
The only thing that spoils it, is the audience laughter. I don't know what it is, but in the US it seems that every (laugh) single (laugh) word (laugh) is (laugh) funny (laugh). It's maddening.
