Tv Season Info

Viewers should get a great big bang out of series 7 of the nerd-com. Unlucky-at-love-Raj (Kunal Nayyar) gets a girlfriend and then loses her, and later becomes a bit of a Don Juan as he not only becomes involved with another woman, but actually dates two for a time. Sheldon (Jim Parsons) makes an accidental scientific breakthrough, but his glory is short-lived. On the plus side, he is positively charged when his childhood hero, Professor Proton (Bob Newhart), pays a couple of visits, and Sheldon also interacts with Science Guy Bill Nye (as himself). As for him and Amy (Mayim Bialik), she takes a job at the university, putting their relationship to the test, and later they go on a romantic Valentine's Day getaway to Napa Valley. On the acting front, Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting)lands a role on NCIS and bags a part in a sleazy, low-budget horror flick, and her relationship with Leonard (Johnny Galecki) heads into uncharted territory. As for newlyweds Howard and Bernadette (Simon Helberg, Melissa Rauch), they host Thanksgiving dinner for the gang and Howard contemplates heading back into space. Big-name guests for this season include James Earl Jones, Carrie Fisher and Wil Wheaton. Christine Baranski and Laurie Metcalf reprise their roles as Leonard and Sheldon's mothers, respectively.

Critic Reviews for The Big Bang Theory: Season 7

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

Any chance to see Bob Newhart is a chance that needs to be taken, especially on one of television's smartest shows.

The Big Bang Theory is now pretty well established, within a relatively short number of years, as the natural successor to Cheers and Friends. And just gets ever better.

Balance is a tough thing in comedy, and a lot of TV's best sitcoms this fall have had issues keeping all their elements in check. But when you get a half-hour like this where everything's working in harmony, it's a real pleasure.

The focus was on breaking the rest of the group into pairs and sending them on different misadventures together. I enjoyed that these pairings were slightly less traditional.

There were definitely some funny moments, but in its entirety it wasn't one of my favorites.

September 27, 2013 | Rating: 4.2/5 | Full Review…

Luckily, the major strides made with Sheldon, Penny, and Leonard compensate for some of the more distasteful humor, making this a strong start for this show's seventh season.
