Review this tv show
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''.
Mar 13, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. "The Big Bang Theory" has devolved. In the early seasons, the highlight of the show was the interplay between Penny and Sheldon. At the end of Season 4, the creators decided to create a 'Bride of Frankenstein' for Sheldon run through a device in which Raj and Wolowitz create a dating profile for Sheldon (answering the survey questions in the manner in which they believed Sheldon would answer them) and out spat 'Amy Farrah-Fowler.' This marked the decline in the show. (Thanks to Dan Fienberg for verbalizing this in his podcast this past week. My thoughts were the same but Dan crystallized them).
The character 'Amy Farrah-Fowler' lustfully longs after Sheldon and in the process, the show basically removed the best interplay (between Sheldon and Penny) for the pairing of 'ShAmy.' Amy, however, is not human. She is some sort of pod-person. Great comedy came out of the gang's awkwardness around those not in their immediate group (minus Penny), but Amy is so far out there her character has turned chillingly into a sociopath this season. Her fixation on Penny, understandable at first (hangin' with the prom queen, as she puts it) has turned into an obsessive fixation. And not a funny, one.
Some other random thoughts:
The joke of Raj being terrified to speak to Penny was funny 5 seasons ago. Not any more. In the episode that aired 3/8, he went on a date to the library with a girl he met at the comic shop on New Years Eve. He proceeded to text and use a voice synthesizer to interact with his date. Come on, after hanging around Penny and Bernadette (sleeping with Penny in the lowest of the low points of the series) it stands to reason that he could maintain a conversation with a woman.
Wolowitz is such a repulsive character. If I ran into this guy at work, I would run and hide. That said, Simon Helberger manages charm that makes the character funny. That said, he and Bernadette's marriage is one of the bigger contrivances of the series. WHat woman would stick around after visiting that perv's bedroom? Yuk.
The Ross and Rachel aspect of Penny and Leonard detracts from the show. Nervous infatuated Leonard and Penny's obliviousness (way back in Season1) was a much better dynamic than where they are in Season 6.
What are Leonard and Sheldon, late 30's going on 22? Enough already. Why does AFF lust after Sheldon, when he's said himself he has no desire for human contact, much less coitus? (the character's words). I always thought that was one of the better aspects of the show, Sheldon's asexuality (compared to the other character's hyper-sexuality).… Expand
Mar 21, 2013Big Bang Theory has gotten stale, and lost all of its comedy roots that it had brought to us in Season 1. The show was meant to be a show for "geeks" and "nerds" but instead focused more on the relationship aspects of the characters, which in turn kicked out most of the humor that we had grown to love.
Sheldon getting a girlfriend is when the show took a turn for the worse, and has been nose-diving ever since. Season 6 has been a so far, and I'm not seeing anything bringing it back in its future. The show should stop now where it is, instead of risking becoming even more stagnant.… Expand
Sep 9, 2013This series has it's moments, but overall the characters don't feel consistent with how they were originally portrayed. Sheldon never understood women and shunned relationships on principle because he had a higher cause, so I'm not a fan of his prolonged relationship with Amy. The writing has just taken a turn for the worse in this season too, with the gags just not hitting home as regularly and the geek references scarce. Lenard is just an enabler for Sheldon's gags most of the time and has had his personality robbed of him. Every character is with a girl except Raj, who is now the funniest character. Sheldon doesn't act like Sheldon should at points in this season either. His OCD has taken a back seat, which is a real shame.… Expand
