Tv Season Info

In Season 4 of the sitcom, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) begins an unorthodox relationship with an equally brilliant—and equally awkward—neuroscientist named Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik, who is bumped from recurring cast member to series regular by the end of the season). Meanwhile, Leonard (Johnny Galecki) starts dating a new woman, but there's only one problem: She's Raj's (Kunal Nayyar) sister, and he's not too happy about it. Kaley Cuoco and Simon Helberg also star.

Critic Reviews for The Big Bang Theory: Season 4

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

The show is now able to spend large chunks of each episode focusing only on the women, and in the process has made Penny a much more well-rounded character rather than just a foil for the nerds.

Mayim fits in perfectly in The Big Bang Theory cast and played off of Kaley Cuoco just as well as Emmy Award-winning Parsons.

There's nothing here that seems even remotely original.

Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco's interplay remains the show's secret weapon.

The comic commentary may be poking gentle fun at nerds, but the real target of the show's sharp satire is the arbitrary, self-serving stupidity of mainstream culture.
