SPOILER ALERT! I am probably, without knowing it going to reveal some pretty essential stuff on the Big Bang Theory, because that’s what I usually do. So, if you don’t want to know, don’t read along.
The Big Bang Theory is a personal favourite. The first couple of seasons made me laugh in extreme measures. A roomie of mine found me in my room laughing in the middle of the night … alone …
I love Sheldon’s complete lack of sympathy and empathy, and especially the first episodes of his relationship with Amy; to some extent the female version of Sheldon. I love how the other three brainiacs keeps being friends with intolerable Sheldon and Leonard’s hopeless and sometimes desperate crush on the girl next door.
The last couple of seasons have not reached the prime and magic of the first 5 seasons had, though. Marriage and so forth have made them all a bit dull and boring – or more specifically; normal. I find the Sheldon and the Amy transformation a bit boring. And the relationship between Leonard and unreachable Penny have made me yarn more than a couple of times. They all have at some point settled, which in one way is sweat and nice but when it comes to the entertaining part I am kinda bored.
Despite this, I still watch the show. Despite the boring twists, the show have become a part of life for me. Who doesn’t want to know what the future holds for all of them. All in all, it is a show one falls in love with and keeps watching to the very end – even though the hard, from the heart laughter rarely emerges these days.
