Tv Season Info

The Big Bang geniuses return after being thrown for a bell curve in the fifth season of "TV's top-rated comedy" (New York Post). While Leonard has to "debug" his relationship with Penny once more after accidentally proposing to her in the heat of the moment, Sheldon, Howard, and Raj continue to discover the feminine mystique is something that cannot be easily graphed or calculated.

I hope things settle down soon, because so far this season, it's all been a bit of a bummer.

It's not only growing, but soaring.

The writers do a decent job of pushing the main storylines forward.

The entire episode was pretty much predicated on two jokes... But those two jokes had enough mileage in them to last a full 22 minutes.

Why does it feel like Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady missed the mark?

Hopefully, once the entire ensemble is reunited again, this show will get moving.

Audience Reviews for The Big Bang Theory: Season 6

    great chemistry. the action/reaction between everyone is great. the girls in the beginning are still in their shells

    This show is so funny, I can not get enough of it!

    This season starts out really good, and there were some good episodes in between, but the rest felt very generic and formulaic that you just question yourself whether to continue watching it or not.

    I'm very surprised to say that this was a very solid season! I knew the show was nominated for the best comedy series Emmy until Season 8 when it wasn't, but I really didn't expect for it to still be about as good as when Bill Prady was running the show! This season had very few low points, and a lot of high points! I also wanna mention that this season, and I think every season since Season 2, has had at least one of my favorite episodes in it!

    Big Bang Theory's Season 6 starts bumpy and ends bumpy, the "Science" component of the show is now dead and all that remains is writers desperately trying to expand on the main cast's love lives.

    The Big Bang Theory: Season 6 This season has it's awful moment, weak start, too much unnecessary drama. but in the end they did a great job keeping it together
  • Aug 08, 2015
    It's clear that the writers of this show know absolutely nothing of who they're trying to depict. No actual "Geek" or "Nerd" would watch this garbage. It's just awful in every way and not funny. On top of all that it has a laugh-track! what is this the 1960s? Shame on everyone involved in this disgusting show.

    Season 6 wasn't that great. The characters were all more intense and less funny. Sheldon was too much Sheldon, Leonard's speeches and decisions (not the actor, the script) were unnatural. It didn't feel like Leonard.

    TBBT has been going downhill since season 4, season 6 was terrible, and the show seems to have come to a dead stop in terms of humor. The incessant laugh track has become an annoyance!
  • Apr 26, 2015
    Not as funny as the others, but still funny. A certified fresh rating of 94% "The laughs are toned down here, but some of the dramatic moments are done well, so we forgive them for it."
