'The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Third Season'
(Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, et al / 3-Disc DVD / NR / 2010 / Warner Bros.)
Overview: 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 hypotenuse.
DVD Verdict: I frickin' LOVE this show!
OK, good, got that out of my system now! 'The Big Bang Theory' has great character interaction and is never a dull show! Anyone who has ever been a geek of any kind can relate to this show!
This third season contains one of the series' most hilarious episodes ever, "The Einstein Approximation" when Sheldon is stumped by a difficult physics question, and won't give up trying to solving the question. Sheldon tries to use spherical representations for the atoms in the question and ends up at ball pit in the middle of the night. And when Leonard tries to get him out of the ball pit, Sheldon keeps diving and swimming through the balls popping up saying "Bazinga!" while Leonard tries to catch him!
Also, the recent Wil Wheaton episode was a hoot. However my favorite from the third season so far is the Christmas episode with the return of Christine Baranski as Leonard's mother. My wife and I have decided that we cannot eat or drink ANYTHING while this show is on as we have spat food out from laughing!
Indeed, I kept thinking that this show could not go on being funny, especially when Leonard and Penny finally began a real relationship. Surely it had jumped the shark at that point. But no, it is just as fresh and funny as it was at the beginning. I'm not much on rewatching shows for the most part, but I simply cannot tolerate commercials so I show my support by encouraging you guys to buy the DVDs and watch commerical free! Highly recommended. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
