Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.
It’s hard to believe that The Big Bang Theory is about to enter its tenth season on TV. I still remember going to Warner Bros. Studios one hot L.A. afternoon nearly a decade ago to watch a taping of the second episode of the series, “The Big Bran Hypothesis.” Little did I know, nor did the half-full audience, that this series about a group of intelligent socially awkward nerds would explode into an international comedy hit.
Now, it’s nearly impossible to get into a taping due to the show’s legions of loyal fans who patiently wait in line to see their favorite TV scientists perform live.
As season ten commences, it’s time to re-watch and enjoy the ninth season that brought some very unexpected and exciting changes to the lives of Leonard (Johnny Galecki), Penny (Kaley Cuoco), Sheldon (Jim Parsons), Amy (Mayim Bialik), Howard (Simon Helberg), Bernadette (Melissa Rauch), and Raj (Kunal Nayyar). And of course, with big changes come big laughs!
When you look back at the first season to where the series and its characters are now, it’s amazing to think that things have developed and changed so much over the years. Who ever thought that Penny and Leonard would get married? Who ever thought Howard would find true love? And who ever in a million years could fathom that there was woman out there who was willing to love and tolerate Dr. Sheldon Cooper?
And yet, here we are with so many changes, so many classic comedy moments, and even a milestone or two. Season nine brings us the 200th episode of the series – “The Celebration Experimentation” – featuring special guest star Adam West! Along with West, look for great moments from Bob Newhart, Judd Hirsch, Wil Wheaton, Christine Baranski, and Laurie Metcalf.
The Big Bang Theory has resonated with audiences worldwide and will continue to live on forever in syndication long after the series ends its initial run. Series creators Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady have done an excellent job keeping the series fresh and funny after almost a decade of episodes, which makes it pretty clear why Lorre continues to be the king of the sitcom hill.
