The Complete Fifth Season

The Big Bang Theory is back with a brand new fifth season. Sheldon, Leonard, Raj, Penny, Bernadette, Howard and Amy all return in this hilarious new season. The fifth season has a total of 24 episodes, each episode approximately 30mins long. The last season finished with Bernadette meeting Howard's mother and them ending up in ER and Raj decided to move in with Sheldon. Leonard also finds out that Priya is moving back to India. The season starts off with Sheldon winding Leonard up about Penny coming out of Raj's room in the last series. From the very first series this season has me laughing and liking the characters even more than in the last season. In this season we see and learn more about Amy's character and how much she has taken a liking to Penny. Like in many other episodes we see all the guys go paintballing many times and we finally see Penny in an advert after her agency rings her about starring in a new advert. Penny picks up a chair from the street which makes Sheldon freak out and Raj tags along with Howard & Bernadette to the cinema. Penny sets up Raj on a date with his dream girl and Sheldon's mother comes for a visit. Leonard and Penny go out on a date again but will everything go to plan? This season has a guest appearance from Steven Hawking who visits their university. Howard and Bernadette plan their wedding but will everything go right when Howard is asked to go on a space mission? Will Howard and Bernadette get married and will Leonard and Penny re-kindle their relationship?
My Favourite Episodes
= = = = = = = = = =
The Infestation Hypothesis - In this episode Penny finds a chair in the street and decides to have it for her flat. Sheldon freaks out after sitting in it and finding out Penny has just picked it up from the street. Sheldon has a dream about the chair and dreams that it's infested and he tried to convince Penny to get rid of the chair. Leonard tries to talk naughty over the internet with Priya but it doesn't quite go to plan. Amy & Penny argue when Sheldon tries to get Amy to convince Penny to throw away the chair.
The Good Guy Fluctuation - its Halloween and Sheldon arranges a range of different tricks to play on his friends after they scare him with a mask. Sheldon's tricks keep back-firing and he's the one who keeps getting pranks played on him .Leonard meets a hot girl in the comic book store and he decides to tell Priya that he's attracted to someone else. I like this episode as Sheldon gets rather frustrated by his Halloween tricks that keep back firing.

From the first episode this has me laughing, due the funny nature of all the characters and the way they are. I was a little worried when I purchased this as I have read some bad reviews about it; how-ever I really enjoyed the fifth season as much as I have the others. There are already talks if there being a season 6 and this will apparently be the last of The Big Bang Theory series. The characters are just as funny as they are in all the other seasons and Sheldon is definitely still my favourite character. There were a few episodes which I enjoyed a lot more than others, how-ever they are still all very enjoyable to watch. When season 6 comes out I will be sure to purchase this to go with my other Big Bang DVD's. I look forwards to what ideas they come up with in the apparent final season. If you like The Big Bang series then I would recommend this season to watch; how-ever it is best to watch all the other seasons first, so you can get an idea of all the characters and what happens between them all. The DVD is good value for money and will eventually drop down in price like all DVD's, how-ever this probably won't be until next year as the DVD hasn't been out for long. Despite some of the bad reviews I've heard I really enjoyed this season and think its well worth 5 stars.
