Review this tv show
Nov 10, 2013You can see by the number of reviews each season has that this show could not stand the test of time I got bored after 2 seasons of the same jokes revolving around characters that are all so similar themselves what made previous sitcoms great was the diversity of character, Friends makes for a good plot comparison and characters were completely different out of the females you had the neurotic clean freak, the ditsy love struck, and the odd former hippie. Then with the males you had the intellectual romantic, the insecure sarcastic, and the meat-head womanizer. In Big Bang what do you got... a nerd, a nerd, a nerd, an extreme nerd, and a soon to be ditsy, amateur nerd, oh yea and some supporting nerds thrown in for good measure. It's trash and I'm amazed it lasted 7 seasons. Good work for them nonetheless I can respect Parsons beating out Sheen for Two and a Half Men back when that was still a thing.… Expand
Nov 19, 2013Still witty and interesting. The relationships between the characters still make you feel like a part of the family. I would like to see some new progress in some of the relationships. Maybe a new character is order to shake things up a bit. Another season without something to stress the relationships will start to make the series seem stagnant.
Jun 5, 2014This is some of the most predictable comedy I've ever seen. I can literally know the joke before they say it (most of the time, at least). The number of funny episodes is staggeringly low. Like 5 episodes out of 24.
On the other hand, there's something i noticed and appreciated about this season, and it's that the writers gave it a central theme (beginning mid-season and continuing to the finale). Penny's career predicament, her and Leonard's decision to get married, and how their decision affected Sheldon in the finale. It somewhat renewed my interest in the show and the characters (some of them, anyway).
I just hope they don't resolve the Sheldon "cliffhanger" in the next season premiere, and then spend the following 23 episodes on their lame jokes. But they will probably do just that.… Expand
Sep 24, 2014I utterly adore this series. Granted it milks every archaic nerd stereotype there is and blows it way out of proportion, but I get that is the point and I enjoy it for what it is. With that said, I found season 7 to be the weakest of the lot.
Aside from Bernadette, Sheldon, and to a lesser extent Stuart, none of the other character get any real growth.
Raj looked like he was getting growth with his relationship with Lucy in season 6, a shame that went nowhere and simply acted as means to get rid of his mutism (which really was his funniest feature.)
While I will say that Amy's character does grow that much this season as she did in previous seasons, she does however give a stellar performance and by far the most energetic of the lot.
I get that there is a bit of hush with Howard's character this season, as season 5 & 6 did put allot of focus on him. So he is forgiven.
Leonard is by far my least favorite character of the show. While he has grown as a character from who he was in season 1, he's just as whiny and it almost feels like he is forcefully playing out way to many geeky stereotypes. His performance feels a little underwhelming and unnatural most of the time.
As for Penny: She is more or less the same character she was in the first season. Almost no development there at all, aside from the fact she is not as young and perky as she once was (still hot though.) I do feel her character is being severely under utilized and should be more than just eye candy.
While there are many episodes that were decent, they just don't have the same carefree and spontaneous feel that previous seasons had. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying they’re bad, just not as good as they use to be.
I really do hope that the extra cash the leading cast now get will mean better performances. I really do not want to see a Simpsons effect taking place. Regardless, this is still one of my favorite sitcoms and while this season was a bit underwhelming, I still have faith it can redeem itself.
Side Note to the producers:
If you really want to get some legendary geek cameos, why not Patrick Stewart, Elijah Wood, David Duchovny, Sigourney Weaver (come on, the queen of Sci-Fi! It’s a crime that she hasn’t been on yet!) There are many, many others.… Expand
Jun 14, 2014So repetitive and mawkish I could only bear to listen to what Sheldon says, and even his scenes were embarrassing to watch. Watching Kaley Cuoco was actually good, because she's hot. Though, in truth, Melissa Rauch is more interesting to look at and watch.
