I usually don't write early reviews, but this season is one of the greatest work of actors I ever seen. Congratulations for the production and for the cast. I loved this season more than any other. You make me change my mind about Big Bang, I usually hate, after this 8 season, I love. Expand

    He de decir que el primer capítulo de esta temporada fue algo flojo pero después va a mejor, siendo la temporada 8 bastante mas divertida de lo que fue la 7. No critiquéis tan pronto.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Better than seasons 4 & 7 so far, but still worse than seasons 1-3, 5-6. There were several funny portions of the first two episodes, but the amount of characters (8-9 leads is too many) trying to squeeze in a few jokes each is just obnoxious. Penny and Leonard's relationship has been based on her always being stupid, so it just seems like a waste to try and have her succeed at her new job. Lots of the recurring jokes are still there, but they aren't funny anymore. They squeezed in the "knock, knock" but in the wrong way, and they referenced the roommate agreement while driving back from Arizona but not in the right way. I also wish they'd get rid of Stuart and Raj because they just weigh it down even more. And Howard's mother? They don't need her either. If they had Howard move out and get married, why is her character still alive? They should just kill her off or have her move away.

    It's getting a bit frustrating to like this show with all these issues (and more). I don't know. I might stop watching at the end of this season. But still, it doesn't really matter what people think. "The Big Bang Theory" will be on until at least the end of the 10th season, with multiple seasons after that being likely (maybe up to 12-15). Ugh don't even get me started on the laugh track.

    Worst series of TBBT so far for sure. Seems to have abandoned actual comedy for lame story lines, cheap twists and WAY too much romance. WhyWorst series of TBBT so far for sure. Seems to have abandoned actual comedy for lame story lines, cheap twists and WAY too much romance. Why does every episode have to be either 1. About one of the couples having some cliché relationship problem or 2. just irrelevant to the story. TBBT is a comedy, not a soap. Nothing seems fresh about this once-great show anymore.
    Seasons 3-6 were fantastic because it something new happened every episode and it made people laugh. I loved TBBT for its originality when it came out but now? It just seems flat. TBBT is signed on for 2 more seasons and if it doesn't pick up the quality soon, it'll either just fizzle out or be cancelled before it can reach the finish line.

    The opening episodes of Season 8 were a disaster. I came late to the show, and typically can't get enough of the episodes on re-runs. However,The opening episodes of Season 8 were a disaster. I came late to the show, and typically can't get enough of the episodes on re-runs. However, the first two episodes of Season 8 are awful. It looks like they tried to make the show more stylized -- it seems like the stars just discovered (gasp!) method acting. The writing has changed dramatically from poking gentle fun at people and stereotypes to being downright mean and petty, with limited "laugh out loud" humor. I hope these are an aberration rather than a harbinger of things to come, or no one will be collecting their new pay for long. Expand

But since, I'm dropping this sorry excuse for a sitcom, I'll make an exception.

    It's outstanding that this show is still going on. It has some of the laziest writing I've ever witnessed. The last season finale showed promise that the status quo will be shaken up, with Penny moving in with Leonard, Sheldon leaving to think about his life, etc. I thought I was going to see the characters in new circumstances, which will lead to fresh ideas for funny situations and jokes.

    After the first two episodes this season, the only (new) thing about the show is Penny's haircut.

    Needless to say, the usual jokes are back, which are now beyond predictable. I was able to manage a chuckle in a scene or two (in the two episodes combined). As for the rest of the duration, watching felt like a chore more than entertainment.

    The cast give some of the most uninspired acting. I can't believe they got their salaries raised. The only exception to this is Jim Parsons (the guy playing Sheldon). He is the only one who deserves that raise, the only one who's still making that show bearable. And what he deserves more, is for him to leave that show; because the longer he stays, the more he is destroying his career.

    This show should have ended by season 6 or 7 at most, but the producers seem intent to milk it for every last penny (no pun intended). They seem very able to do so, as the no. of viewers is actually increasing (the only unpredictable thing about this show).

    But whether it continues to succeed or not, I truly don't care anymore. I'm done with this.
