"A Broad, Funny Show. Awfully Endearing. When the Entire Geek Squad Is Assembled, It's a Riot."
-Matt Roush,

Physicists Leonard and Sheldon understand everything from the inescapable gravitational pull of a black hole to the intricate structure of an atom. But take those atoms and assemble them into a woman, and their comprehension comes to a grinding halt. And when Penny, a woman with all those atoms in all the right places, moves in across the hall, Leonard and Sheldon's universe begins to expand in ways they never could have imagined.

When series creators Chuck Lorre (Two and a Half Men) and Bill Prady (Dharma & Greg) combine equal parts science, superheroes and sex and add stars Johnny Galecki (Roseanne) and Jim Parsons (Judging Amy), the result is an explosively funny comedy for the nerd in all of us.

My Comments:

This was given to me as a gift and I'd never even heard of the show. What a great surprise this turned out to be. The premise - an awkward, socially retarded nerd falls for a beautiful woman - has been done countless times before but it's done so well here that it almost feels fresh. Johnny Galecki is fantastic as Leonard, Jim Parsons is a stand-out as Sheldon and their uber-geek friends also make for some laugh out loud moments. Also keep an eye out for special appearances from Galecki's former Roseanne castmates Sara Gilbert and Laurie Metcalf.

Great show. Thanks Kerry and Jamie!

    "The top-rated comedy on television."

    Worlds collide in Season 3! A love affair with Penny has opened a big, wide, wonderful world of romance for Leonard. But Sheldon likes the world just the way it was, thank you. All of which makes for a zany comic triangle with brainy, clueless Sheldon and practical, grounded Penny hilariously vying for the role of hypoteneuse. This complete 3-Disc, 23-Episode Season 3 Set also features Raj, Howard, tattoos, football, awkward dates, jail time, Stan Lee, a The Lord of the Rings ring and all the fun of a series that only gets better. The big Bang Theory "has transformed from a cute comedy about eggheads and their hottie neighbor into an addictive ensemble piece that could be this decade's answer to Friends."

    "In its sixth year, Big Bang is bigger than ever."
    -Rob Moynihan, TV GUIDE

    Whether on Earth or above it, hilarity is outrageously universal in TV's most popular comedy featuring four foward thinking but socially backward geniuses. Fun discoveries multiply: Leonard leanrns jealousy is bad for a relationship (with Penny) but science is good for seduction (of Penny). Howard finds life on the International Space Station is no escape from terrestrial turmoil between his overbearing mom and his new wife Bernadette. Raj meets someone special who may be a good match, if only he can keep her from fleeing mid-date. Even Sheldon learns a few things: a) what not to say when called in to meet the university's employee relations director, b) what happens to childhood TV idols, and c) that a Dungeons & Dragons adventure can be the icebreaker his relationship with Amy needs. For those who need laughter with scientific regularity, this 3-disc, 24 episode Season Six set of The Big Bang Theory will rock your cosmos.

    "Nothing is hotter than Big Bang."
    -Matt Roush, TV GUIDE

    Socially challenged they remain, but the scientific geniuses of The Big Bang Theory always deliver hilarious results. Leonard returns from his North Sea expedition to find that his relationship with Penny involves more beta-testing then he's ever done in a lab. Howard's attachment issues with the women in his life in particular and Raj's social breakthrough with women in general provide more laughs. Bernadette and Amy stand staunchly by the men in their lives, even when they're sitting in marathon role-playing games. Sheldon sees his mom (Laurie Metcalf) in a totally different way, parties with James Earl Jones, establishes a (sort of) bond with his idol Professor Proton (Emmy winner Bob Newhart) and makes a scientific breakthrough that breaks down before you can say Science Friday. Experience your own humor breakthrough with this 24-episode Season Seven set of TV's most popular comedy.
