Big Bang Theory S5 BD 02 600x338 The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Fifth Season Blu ray Review

The unlikely hit sitcom about nerdy geniuses and their not-so-smart beautiful neighbor hit the milestone of filming its 100th episode in this Fifth Season of The Big Bang Theory. The comedy remains pretty much the same, so there’s nothing new or too unpredictable for longtime watchers, even as the series maintains its consistently high quality of intelligent humor.

Season Five sees Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) kickstart their on again/off again relationship once again in a “2.0” trial version, while Sheldon (Jim Parsons) finally concedes to making Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik) his actual girlfriend. In the meantime, Howard (Simon Helberg) is scheduled to head into space to the International Space Station for NASA as his wedding to the diminutive but feisty Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) grows ever closer. Meanwhile, Raj’s (Kunal Nayyar) girl trouble has him so lonely and desperate that he’s ready to contemplate an arranged marriage.

Big Bang Theory S5 BD 01 600x338 The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Fifth Season Blu ray Review

The Big Bang Theory, filmed on 35mm, has always tended to look a little soft and slightly over-saturated. While this helps to give the candy-colored outfits of Wolowitz a lot of pop, it also tends to make some of the faces look a bit too reddish at times. Still, the overall 1080p transfer on Blu-ray is superior, as one might expect, to the 1080i broadcasts, which are heavily compressed. The problems with those broadcasts are all gone here, so there is no posterization, no clipping in the whites, or compression errors.

Big Bang Theory S5 BD 03 600x338 The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Fifth Season Blu ray Review

Audio is straightforward, coming in a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (48kHz/16-bit) mix that gives clean dialogue in the center channel, a boost of lows during the cut sequences, and basically a little bit of the laugh track in the surrounds.

Big Bang Theory S5 BD 05 600x338 The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Fifth Season Blu ray Review

I don’t know that Season 5 is the strongest season yet of The Big Bang Theory, but is still loaded with laughs and packs an hysterical comical punch. That the writers of the series have been able to maintain such a high level of quality this far into the series is both a testament to their skill and the skills of the cast who make the material shine.
