The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Fifth Season
The fifth season of The Big Bang Theory settles into a solid, enjoyable groove. The original quintet of four nerds and a pretty girl has been complemented by two nerd girls, creating a dynamic social world that retains all the social awkwardness needed for comic effect. Much of the season revolves around relationships: Howard (Simon Helberg) is engaged to Bernadette (Melissa Rauch), though that bond is tested by everything from Howard getting commissioned to be an astronaut to online revelations of Howard's former sleaziness; Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) start dating again, this time as "Leonard & Penny 2.0," promising to treat problems as bugs that can be reported and fixed; and Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) formalize their relationship with--what else?--a contract, though a dissatisfied Amy later decides to make Sheldon a better boyfriend through sneaky behavior modification.
But some of the most delightful bits come from Raj (Kunal Nayyar), the show's remaining singleton, whose ambiguous sexuality flavors everything he says. Nayyar's performance grows increasingly charming, as does Bialik's; in addition to her grappling with Sheldon's impermeable narcissism, the strange undercurrent of lust in Amy's friendship with Penny stirs up comic anxiety. And of course Sheldon never fails to delight as, among other things, he lets all his decisions be determined by a roll of the dice; treats Leonard as "Schrödinger's Friend"; and embraces chaos in his life by playing bongos in the middle of the night and wearing Tuesday pajamas on Thursday night. All in all, though season five feels less surprising than previous seasons, the quality of the writing and performances remains high. The extras on The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Fifth Season are unremarkable, except for a featurette about the series' director and designers, which shows a different side of network television. Guest appearances included the recurring Wil Wheaton, Brent Spiner, Stephen Hawking, and a vocal performance by Leonard Nimoy as Sheldon's conscience. --Bret FetzerSee all Product description
From the manufacturer
Smart is the New Sexy
In the award-winning television series The Big Bang Theory, the guys are real brainiacs. But when it comes to the opposite sex, they’re still on a steep learning curve. Join physicists Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper as they and their friends ponder black holes, chemical deviations, girls and other mysteries of the universe in the phenomenally funny episodes of Season Five. As they muddle through relationship 'bugs' and romance re-launches, they also discover there’s nothing a good roll of the D&D dice or a paintball tournament can’t solve.
Penny is the only main character whose last name has not been revealed.
Most of the time, Leonard’s glasses have no lenses in them.
Mayim Bialik is the only actor in the show who has a real-life PhD. Her field of study is neuroscience.
The two main characters (Sheldon Cooper and Leonard Hofstadter) were named after the late TV producer Sheldon Leonard.
The actors actually learned to play the instruments their characters play in the show (Amy plays the harp, Sheldon plays the theremin and recorder, and Leonard plays the cello).
- The complete fifth season, all 24 episodes
- More than eight hours of nerdy jokes and side-splitting laughs on three DVDs
- Lots of surprise guest appearances, including Stephen Hawking
- A must-watch show for TV comedy fans
- Also available as a five-disc Blu-ray set
Meet the Cast
Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons)
A theoretical physicist, Sheldon is an uber-nerd genius totally lacking in people skills. He has very little interest in romance, but he does (reluctantly) have a girlfriend, Amy Farrah Fowler.
Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik)
Amy is a neurobiologist who meets Sheldon through an online dating service. They are similar in many ways, particularly in their high intellect and poor social skills.
Penny (Kaley Cuoco)
An aspiring actress, Penny earns a living as a waitress. Although usually attracted to meatheads, she has an on-again, off-again relationship with nerdy Leonard.
Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki)
Leonard is a kind, good-natured experimental physicist. He and his friend Sheldon have shared an apartment for years. His love interest is Penny, who lives next door.
Bernadette Rostenkowski (Melissa Rauch)
A waitress at the Cheesecake Factory, Bernadette is also working to complete her PhD in microbiology. Penny introduces her to Howard and they hit it off.
Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg)
An aerospace engineer, Howard is a super-confident jerk who sees himself as a ladies’ man. His dating life is a disaster until he meets Bernadette.
Raj Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar)
Howard’s best friend, Raj is a shy and nervous astrophysicist who has a difficult time talking to girls – unless he’s drunk.
Stuart Bloom (Kevin Sussman)
Stuart is the owner of the Comic Center of Pasadena, a comic book shop the guys often visit. Shy and insecure, Stuart has a crush on Penny.
