Tv Season Info

Relationships dominate Series 8 of The Big Bang Theory, but the gang continues to find difficulties around every corner. Penny and Leonard both blossom and flounder in the wake of their engagement, while Sheldon and Amy seem to make progress, though Amy is still unhappy about their slow pace. Raj, too, has a steady girlfriend in Emily, but she has a few quirks he finds unappealing. Howard and Bernadette face an awkward situation when Stuart moves in with Howard's mother and Howard becomes especially frustrated after they develop a mother/son bond. But, the gang bands together to help Howard cope with a big personal crisis.

Critic Reviews for The Big Bang Theory Season 8

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

Saying that, every good show needs to reflect the time in which it is set, and in its own way The Big Bang Theory is attempting to do just that.

This is just the episode we needed to quench our theory thirst.

Jan 14, 2015 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

The old status quo is back in full force.

Sep 24, 2014 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

There's a lot to be excited about with regard to this coming season.

Sep 23, 2014 | Full Review…

I watched all seven episodes that had aired so far this season and didn't so much as expel air forcefully from my nose in response to any of the jokes.

Actually, The Big Bang Theory is just the same as it ever was, which should reassure Sheldon at least.

Oct 23, 2014 | Full Review…

Penny's job, and the potential for her to gain confidence and out-earn fiancé Leonard for the first time, could prove to be the change that bears the most funny fruit this season.

Sep 24, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

With the show safe for at least two more seasons, there's no motivation for the writing staff to try harder.

Wow. That season premiere was an utter disappointment in the laughs department. It was more depressing than funny.

Audience Reviews for The Big Bang Theory: Season 8


Season 8 is another funny and great season of "Chuck Lorre's" hit TV series "The Big Bang Theory". The majority of the episodes have been good. The series finale wasn't very entertaining, sometimes I feel TV comedies are turned into "Soap Operas". The acting in Season 8 is good, "Jim Parsons" is still an amazing actor. This season was filmed very well, except sometimes I feel the "Chuck Lorre" doesn't work as hard on the show as he used to. Season 8 was still funny but not as funny as previous seasons, this is because it's the eighth season and a lot has been already done. "The Big Bang Theory" is still a humorous show, but not as good as previous seasons. If you are a person who likes comedies then I recommend watching "The Big Bang Theory" as it is a funny show. I give "The Big Bang Theory: Season 8" a 7/10.
