All episodes from the first to fifth seasons of the US sitcom are currently on sale for £22.25, which works out to be less than £5 per season.
The series revolves around two university physicists, Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), their beautiful, free-spirited waitress and aspiring actress who lives across the hall neighbour, Penny (Kaley Cuoco), and Leonard and Sheldon’s equally geeky and socially awkward friends and co-workers, aerospace engineer Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) and astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar). Best friends Leonard and Sheldon are technological wizards, physicist geniuses, and social nerds learning lessons about life and love from the beautiful girl next door, Penny, in the Emmy-nominated comedy The Big Bang Theory. The Complete Seasons One Through Five gathers all the laughs, all the logic, and all the fun as the Big Bang gang expand the universe with new friends, new relationships and comedy that’s nothing short of genius.
The geekiness and intellect of the four guys is contrasted for comic effect with Penny’s social skills and common sense. Over time, supporting characters have been promoted to starring roles: Leslie Winkle, a physicist colleague at Caltech and, at different times, a lover of both Leonard and Howard; Bernadette Rostenkowski, Howard’s girlfriend (later his wife), a microbiologist and former part-time waitress alongside Penny; neuroscientist Amy Farrah Fowler, who joins the group after being matched to Sheldon on a dating website, and Stuart Bloom, the cash-strapped owner of the comic book store the characters often visit.
