(June 1, 2009 – Burbank, CA) – Get ready to laugh your way to the lab as two brilliant roommates conquer the scientific world, but fail miserably in the romantic one as Warner Home Video releases the hit comedy “The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Second Season” on DVD September 15, 2009 for $44.98 SRP. Timed to coincide with the premiere of the show’s third season on CBS, fans will enjoy watching and laughing as these astronomically funny scientists and beautiful neighbor prove how high their comedy I.Q.s really are. Order due date is August 11, 2009. The science of funny is back! At work, physicists Leonard and Sheldon and their pals conquer the cosmos. At home, real life – from dating to driving – conquers them. This season, Leonard gets a girl. So does Sheldon. (Sheldon?!) Howard drives the Mars Rover into a ditch. Raj woos a terminator. Gorgeous girl-next-door Penny falls under the spell of Age of Conan. And super-smart, überconfident Leslie Winkler reduces mere men to spineless jellyfish.
