Product Description


The third season of the wonderfully smart and silly comedy The Big Bang Theory is even better than the first two. When Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, and Raj--the show's quartet of supreme geeks--return from their research expedition in the Arctic, Leonard and his adorable neighbor Penny fall into each other's arms. In most TV shows, losing that sexual tension would deflate the entire series, but the writers and performers of The Big Bang Theory navigate these treacherous waters with aplomb; after a weak couple of episodes, the show regains its bearings with faux tattoos, sneaky behavior modification, lessons in football, a dislocated shoulder, a trip to Switzerland, pot brownies, and the one true Ring. Guest appearances by comic book legend Stan Lee, Katee Sackhoff from Battlestar Galactica, and former Star Trek boy genius Will Wheaton as themselves are used to remarkably good effect, and Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, as Howard and Raj, get better story lines than ever before.

But make no mistake: Jim Parsons, as Sheldon, drives the show. With Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) grappling with fairly conventional relationship issues, it falls to Sheldon to turn every potential cliché into an opportunity for unexpected lunacy. His combination of ruthless rationality, profound narcissism, and yawning neediness make Sheldon a remarkable comic creation, and Parsons plays him to the hilt. Even funnier than his relentless analytical approach to emotions is when he tries to be more human; his attempts to comfort Penny when she's injured are hilariously unnerving. Watching Sheldon "grow" over the course of The Big Bang Theory's progress is one of the show's greatest pleasures. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Aug. 24 2010
The Big Bang Theory is the funniest sitcom that has come along in quite awhile.

In answer to Buddy Ray who gave this sitcom a 1 star, I would like to answer his query of "Who would watch this? The answer is "Anyone who has a mind that enjoys a show involving vocabulary of more than one syllable."

5.0 out of 5 stars Restored my faith in television comedies Aug. 24 2010
For years I've become increasingly turned off by low-brow brainless laugh-track comedy, and when I started watching TBBT I was instantly hooked - the characters are hilarious, even (or, perhaps, especially) when the show turns into "The Sheldon Show", the writing is clever, and the concepts in the show actually require you to use your brain.

I was especially impressed when the show's rating climbed steadily, proving that there is a market for intelligent, clever programming. I agree with the other reviewer, this show is great, and I've never seen an episode I didn't enjoy - I can unreservedly recommend it, and the single negative reviewer can go back to watching the mindless crap on other channels.

If you've never seen it, you owe it to yourself to try it, you'll love it. (if you have a functioning brain)

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Television!!! Aug. 25 2010
By L. J. Casey TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I don't typically watch television so I didn't know about this show until a 13 year old young lady told me about it....it is in a word "BRILLIANT". I have the first 2 seasons on dvd and look forward to seeing the third season that way too. For the person who didn't think it was funny, I'm sure you like to watch what passes for 'reality' television and you don't happen to posess a sense of humor it seems. There need to be more television shows like this(intelligent) and maybe I wouldn't be cancelling my satelite service. There is really not much on television worth watching anymore. Sad commentary on the entertainment industry as a whole.

Une des meilleures sit-coms jamais créées, pas niaise, pas vulgaire, très drôle...et avec des personnages qui nous font penser aux gens rencontrés dans la vraie vie...

5.0 out of 5 stars What can I say but awesome Feb. 28 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I am not sure if buying DVD's and blu-rays is worth it in the digital age - however this series along with a few others is a keeper, the cast, the writing, the concept of the show is second to none. The show has the ability to have you routing for the characters.

Many hours of laughter and enjoyment will be had.

Be aware if you are looking for both blu-ray and dvd in the same box - shop carefully so that you get the package that you want.

4.0 out of 5 stars You have to like it Feb. 18 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Each season is better than the one before and as the characters develop they become more believable and very much like old, quirky friends. It reminds me of old series like Cheers or Friends - you begin to get connected to the characters even if you know that they are fictions. You will like it.

Even after this time, I still enjoy these crazy people. Sheldon is exasperating all the time while the rest just carry on.
