The Big Bang Theory returned, yet again, from a small break. But this time they did not live up to our expectations. The show all-of-a-sudden seems to have a serious tone and the characters seem purposeless. Not to mention the hard-to-laugh-at jokes. I precisely remember only one or two instances where I had a smile pop across my face.
After Leonard and Penny were married, the writers simply have forgotten to spin jokes with them. So instead, they tried a serious discussion. Penny thinks Leonard is not trying enough as he used to (which I think is definitely wrong, as he says) and that they need time to think over their relationship. Whereas Shamy have grown into a super couple with open kisses and a “miss you” attitude. Amy thinks of herself as the group leader, hosting the ladies’ night. The shows best part is being supplied by Howard, who is thinking of repairing the squeaky floor in baby Halley’s room. Raj and Howard try out ideas and each time the solution is futile.
Though the show garners enough viewers, but being a die-hard fan even I think it is nosing down and needs to up its game. We have had enough of Raj being attached to the Howard-Bernadette storyline and he needs to have something of his own. The character’s story itself is not having any progress. Finally, Penny and Leonard getting a Relationship Agreement is not the solution we would want. There was always a spark in the couple and they could deal with the damages. Nevertheless, Sheldon showing an interest in other people’s lives is sweet to watch.
My favourite moment from the show was the time when Leonard and Penny asked Sheldon to whip up a Roommate Agreement and Sheldon said, “I get to write a contract? I say let’s get the party’s first part started”. Then Shamy laugh hard, to which Penny asks if that is really funny. Amy says, “It’s in our agreement. I have to laugh”.
