Worlds collide in Season 3! A love affair with Penny has opened a big, wide, wonderful world of romance for Leonard. But Sheldon likes the world just the way it was, thank you. All of which makes for a zany comic triangle with brainy, clueless Sheldon and practical, grounded Penny hilariously vying for the role of hypotenuse. This complete 3-Disc, 23-Episode Season 3 Set also features Raj, Howard, tattoos, football, awkward dates, jail time, Stan Lee, a The Lord of the Rings ring and all the fun of a series that only gets better. The Big Bang Theory "has transformed from a cute comedy about eggheads and their hottie neighbor into an addictive ensemble piece that could be this decade's answer to Friends" (Lynette Rice, Entertainment Weekly).
Back in February we passed along word
that retailers (specifically Best Buy, as part of a promotion they were doing at the time) had been told to expect the The Big Bang Theory - The Complete 3rd Season
and Blu-ray Disc
on September 7th. However, we warned you at the time that this date many not be the final one, and could be subject to change. Now Warner Home Video has formally announced these items, and the finalized release date - timed to coincide with the fall debut of the show's new broadcast season - is now set for September 14th
The finalized pricing turns out to be $44.98 SRP for the DVD (3 discs), and $54.97 SRP for the Blu-ray Disc version (2 discs). You'll get 23 episodes running 529 minutes, plus bonus material: a Gag Reel; a Big Bang
Set Tour with Simon and Kunal ("get an insider's look at TV's hottest comedy, as Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar take us on a tour of the set"); and a "Take-Out with the Cast of The Big Bang Theory
" Featurette ("we'll have plenty of food-for-thought as the cast and creators dig into this
season's funniest/favorite moments in addition to a side of Chow Mein
"). Video is Widescreen (with high-definition on the Blu-ray version), and Audio is English Dolby Surround 5.1 with an option for Portuguese Stereo. Package art hasn't been made available yet, but stay tuned for that!
