“The Big Bang Theory” is TV’s most popular comedy. It is going on it’s eight season and shows no signs of fatigue in fact this show is better than ever! This season actually got off to a slightly slow start but really ended up a bunch of the best episodes that this series has ever had to date. This season has amazing guest stars including James Earl Jones, Carrie Fisher and Bob Newhart (one of my favorites). Season five ended with Howard going into space, which was good. Season six ended with Leonard going on a research trip on a boat for months. But season seven has a very real and almost not funny yet absolutely amazing Sheldon revelation that might change the dymanic of the show moving forward. I absolutely love this show and this season is the reason why. Can’t wait for season eight to start…count down the days.
Official Premise: 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 than 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 life, 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.
“The Complete Seventh Season” hits Blu-ray as a combo pack with a Blu-ray + DVD + UltraViolet digital copy of the season. The 1080p transfers with their DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround tracks are in line with the previous seasons, which were all exceptional for this show. The special features are also a blast to enjoy after watching the season. Here’s the list of the included special features: String Theory Serenade, James Earl Jones: The Un-Conventional Guest Star, BBTea Time, The Big Bang Theory’s May the 4th, The Big Cendrowski, 2013 Comic-Con Panel, Johnny Galecki Crashes the BBT Writers Panel, and Gag Reel. The only thing missing that would make this perfect would be some commentary tracks.
