The Big Bang Theory

Post by tony ingram on Sun Jul 10, 2016 12:42 pm

Am I alone in thinking that, much as I like TBBT, tis latest season seems to have lost its edge somewhat? What was a unit of four guys and a girl now seems permanently divided, with plotlines split between the domestic concerns of the Leonard/Penny/Sheldon triumvirate and the Wolowitz's, the two groups rarely interacting, with Raj becoming increasingly irrelevant, and the others beginning to look rather tired. Am I wrong?

I haven't actually been watching it, but sitcoms do tend to lose their edge when people get partnered off and/or married.

Since it's a subjective opinion, I don't know that you CAN be wrong.

Anyway, I like and don't like this series, but there have definitely been changes. I don't mind, I'm not someone who thinks the initial set-up has to stay the same, but I've pretty much gotten bored with this show. I still watch, and I hope it gets better, but it's more for odd reasons. I like the Sheldon/Penny friendship, I think that as odd as it is, it really works. But, overall it seems to be running out of steam.

And that's not getting into the who "laughing AT geeks" argument.

It's more like 'laughing at the writers' idea of geeks'.

True, but to the audience, that is how geeks DO act. TV really influences how people perceive a lot of things. For the bad, I think.
