Dec 22, 2012When I first began watching this show, I laughed gleefully at all the science references and Sheldon's overall demeanor. Additionally, each character had their moment to shine. Now, I rarely laugh. Sheldon is the only character that remains to have any ability to make me do so. This show has simply lost its novelty, like the Office has; the only difference being I can laugh more at the Office. It makes me sick that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association considers this show good enough to deserve two nominations for Golden Globes when shows like Community, Parks and Rec, It's Always Sunny, Louie, and, hell, even the Office are left with one or none. I don't hate the show; like I said, I still laugh occasionally. Overall, however, it has become a shell of why it was so good in the first place. I urge you all, come February 7 at 8 pm, don't tune your TVs to CBS to watch this unoriginal, formulaic sitcom, but rather to watch Community, arguably one of the most intelligent and original shows on right now. It's hilarious, consistent, and has been screwed over by the network since it premiered. More than anything though, it needs viewers. It has struggled in the same time spot as Big Bang Theory and it breaks my heart. Please check it out, you won't be disappointed (like I am with this season of Big Bang...).… Full Review »
Oct 27, 2012Not on the same par as from season 1 - 5. : ( . in my opinion the show is putting more attention on the relationships instead of the ''geekyness'' of each characters and how they interact with one another. i don't mind them pairing up but as long as the main topic of each episode doesn't revolve around relationships otherwise in my opinion im beginning 2 find this show as ''cheesy''.… Full Review »
Oct 27, 2012This show is one of my favorite sitcoms, but after watching the first couple of episodes of season 6, I'm not sure it will remain that way.
The cast feels scattered across scenes. Most of the scenes consist of two of the cast interacting. We rarely see the entire cast doing something together like they used to. The worst thing is, the writers don't know what to do with Raj. He doesn't seem to be part of the group anymore. He wants a girlfriend, we know that. Is it too hard for the writers to come up with a good story arc for him involving a potential girlfriend? The writers want character development and I find that a good thing. But it all doesn't feel that fresh anymore. I miss many of the character's quirks. And the relationship between Leonard and Penny is weird, or maybe just boring. If you don't come up with anything for the two, brake them up already and make up some funny stories for them. The show is currently dealing with 3 couples and a single guy, who is a fifth wheel.
I think this has to be changed to get back the feeling that the show is about a group of friends. Or, at least don't make the entire cast feel so settled down and have them get back some verve.
It's currently a slightly above average show, not more.… Full Review »
