I was more than excited to see the fifth season DVD of The Big Bang Theory arrive at my office the other day. Even the cover art is really cool. (Look over there, on the left – cool right?)
As it says in the official press details: It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand why audiences continue to fall in love with the geniuses from Caltech.
I could watch this show for hours on end, and thanks to DVD – now I can, and I did. On September 11th, so will you!
America’s favorite physicists are back with a bang as Warner Home Video (WHV) releases The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Fifth Season on DVD and Blu-rayTM Combo Pack on September 11, 2012. In its fifth season, airing Thursdays at 8/7c on CBS, The Big Bang Theory was the #1 comedy on network television among Total Viewers, and in its first year in off-network syndication, the series ranked as the #1 show in all of syndication among Adults 18-49 and 25-54*. Coinciding with the show’s highly-anticipated sixth season premiere, The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Fifth Season will be available for an SRP of $44.98 on DVD and $54.97 on Blu-rayTM Combo Pack.
In The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Fifth Season, Penny and Leonard’s relationship is relaunched in full “beta test” mode, while Sheldon, Howard, and Raj discover the feminine mystique is something that cannot be easily graphed or calculated. As Sheldon makes begrudging amendments to his “Relationship Agreement” with his “friend-who-happens-to-be-a-girl,” Amy Farrah Fowler, Raj contemplates an arranged marriage, and Howard is all-systems-go for both his NASA launch and wedding to the spirited Bernadette.
Once I turned on the DVD player I went immediately to the Gag Reel – the bloopers. I was a bit disappointed in the length of the gag reel though. It was quite short without a ton of breaking up and laughing through scenes. I wonder if the cast is so comfortable with each other and the process that they just don’t make mistakes anymore. Hmmm.
Anyway, I then went back to Disc One and watched a few hours. The show really is genius. I laughed as if I hadn’t just seen these episodes last fall.

Ø The Big Bang Theory @100 (featurette): The cast and producers celebrate the 100th episode
Ø The Big Bang Theory’s Laws of Reflection (featurette): The cast reflects on their favorite memories from Season 5

I highly recommend this set for your collection. Don’t have a collection? START ONE! Don’t make me set Sheldon loose on you with his Game of Thrones sword.
