  1. I think the (new) fans out-number the (old) fans. I agree with the original poster. I loved the show for the first 3 seasons. The show changed when the producers decided they wanted to increase their demographic to get more viewers - (namely female viewers). All of the sudden the show's characters started to change from awkward individuals struggling to fit in and thrive (classic "nerd"-type issues) - into a sitcom that has the same old "formula" of male-female relationships. (Just like every other sitcom out there - predictable and boring). Quite frankly, everything that made
  2. Everyone has an opinion. Only the editors truly know what they do with the audio track for final production. I would suspect that even though they record many "takes" with various levels of laughter - at the end of the day, the editor has resources (laff tracks) to utilize in order to fine tune the laughter to whatever level they are trying to achieve. I absolutely loved the first 3 seasons of the show - but now I can't stand the way they have changed it. One of the things that I disliked is that around the end of the 3rd season or so, there was a (noticeable) increase in t
  3. The episodes become even shorter when you fast forward past all the relationship crap so-called-comedy story lines. The few glimpses of past comedic glory (just the guys interacting) is becoming a rarity on the show. We are now over-shadowed by nagging women imposing relationship issues on the guys. I really hate what this once-great show has devolved into. I'm going to ride it out a few more episodes and if I cannot stomach it any more, the rest of you who like the new format can "have" it - as I'll be done with it. That shark has long since been jumped.
  4. There is absolutely nothing wrong with keeping the characters "static". The characters themselves and the specific roles they played were supposed to be stereotypes. These stereotypes very importantly allowed viewers to identify with, and recognize how these 4 guys, struggle to interact with the world around them. This struggle was funny. Very funny. It was also very well done in that it was believable and struck a chord of authenticity with all viewers who have any bit of nerdiness in them. I "want" to see a typical nerd try to get the girl. I "want" to see the super-genius asexual hu
  5. It is truly unfortunate that the writers have chosen to turn this once-great show into a commonplace "relationship" sitcom. I watched it because it was unique and funny as hell. I watched it because the writing and situations did not "cater" to the viewing public who wanted dumbed-down "romantic comedy" (gag, choke) types of shows. Seasons 1-3 rocked big time. Season 4 started the transition to watered-down run of the mill territory that has simply accellerated, unfortunately. This latest season, for me, is almost unwatchable. What the writers did to the main (male) characters is hor
  6. I think that all the characters (except for Raj) are practically dead. The writers have changed all of them too much - to morph the show from a funny, geeky, unique show - to a run of the mill sitcom where relationships are the only impetus for so-called comedy. Rest in Peace Seasons 1-3. Those days shall never return again. So sad to lose the characters and situations that we loved so much.
  7. Pretty much where the general direction was/is going now anyway - so not really anything ground-breakingly new. I guess the producers feel it is time for the nerds to grow up and become just like everyone else, and for the show to become like every other show out there. They "shall boldly go where everyone else has already gone before !" Predictable and formula to a "T". Yawwwnnnnn. NEXT !
  8. What I have ended up doing for Season 4 and 5 is to FFWD through ALL the scenes with: - Just the girls together doing girlie things - Scenes with Bernadette and anyone else - Scenes with Amy trying to seduce Sheldon I watched the parts with the guys being themselves (well, their "changed" selves) - no thanks to the creators/writers !! That made seasons 4 and 5 more palatable. And, for the record, the season 5 finale where everyone started to hold hands - even Sheldon - made me GAG ! Gimme a break, already.
  9. BINGO !!! I absolutely agree with you. Relationships that come/go are ok in small doses, but the SHOW must revolve around the stereotypical nerds that we know and love. It is THEIR trials, nerd culture, and REAL science that makes the show funny, entertaining, and UNIQUE. I, too, will stop watching if I see that they have taken the show even farther away from its roots. If I have to sit through relationship issues (the wet blanket that now covers the show), I will walk away from the show - and let the people who crave "romantic-comedy-formula" garbage to enjoy what this once-great show ha
  10. Science - PLEASE ! I want the show to get back to its roots - which is where I got hooked on it. After Season 3 it dissolved into less and less about quirky nerds and more about run-of-the-mill relationship garbage that you can get on any other sitcom out there. It has been watered-down enough !!!
  11. I never liked the theme song and find it annoying. It is also one of those tunes that is just "catchy-enough" to stick with you and drive you bannanas as you sing it (or try to) in your head long after you have heard it. I FFwd through it every time but usually catch just enough of it to induce the "residual effect" above - LoL !
  12. If anyone has read any of my posts, you'd already know what I am about to write. Season 1-3 Sheldon (and everyone else) is what I prefer. It is the introduction of the now "regular" female characters, their female "circle", and the interaction with the guys (for the sake of creating "relationships") that caused the male characters that we knew and loved, to forcibly "adapt" (change) into what they have now become - regular and boring. Bring the show back to its roots, let the show be about the guys being themselves, and let us laugh and enjoy the show again. And BTW, Sheldon as a log
  13. Who got left out? Penny, or the 'treasured acquaintance'? To me, I like the show as a "guy" thing. A story about guys, for guys. I find the other supporting characters to be just that - supporting side stories - no more. I'd rather have most of the focus of the show be on the 4 guys.
  14. Well, I would have preferred it to end earlier than morph into an "all crowd-pleasing" show that drifted away from its unique comedic formula. If they found their story-lines getting tired and the ratings starting to drop, I would have preferred that they end it on a high note - rather than changing the show into something that had become more and more difficult to stomach. Long live Seasons 1-3. :-) PS - I still love the show - (mostly for the 4 main characters) - but that love is slowly dissolving...
  15. This isn't a soap opera. I actually think it (is) turning into a soap opera. Time will tell where the writers take it from here.
