What happened to Lorre & Prady's promise at this year's Comic-con to put Raj in a relationship?  We're halfway through the season and nothing of the sort is in sight.  Actually, I would rather see them do something different with him.  Maybe he could have a major career development instead. 

 

Prady amended that to say it was sort of a relationship. It turned out he meant Stuart, which I think is complete BS.

 

Kunal is now tweeting quotes from the fans about the dissatisfaction with the Raj characters treatment but the producers don't seem to know what to do with Raj, at least publicly.

That's interesting that Kunal is upset with how they're handling Raj too. I hope that will get them to do something about it. I do think that they should give him a storyline where Amy and Bernadette try to cure his mutism. That's the most logical way to go, because I can't buy him suddenly talk to girls.

Seriously?  They just meant they were going to give Raj a substitute Howard?  They haven't even done any major plot lines with the Raj/Stuart friendship, only a few scenes here and there.  Anyway, I reiterate what I said before:  Raj's character development does not have to be by way of a romance.  He could have something different happen in his personal life or maybe a career accomplishment.

Raj is getting to be a completely wasted character who supports the couples on occasion. I can't blame Kunal for being tired of the now formula faux gay jokes. I guest they are afraid that to give him a woman would mean having another character compete for the now precious screen time. That's why promoting Stuart to regular was a waste, especially since he gets only a little more screen time then before.

 

The solution is just as you suggest, have Raj do something non-couples related, let him be happy in some other aspect of his life. Having him be this whining loser in love is getting depressing.

I like Kunal  a lot & agree giving him a plot where Amy and Bernadette try to fix him would be fun & a great use of the characters.

That sure will give him a storyline that would use the existing characters on the show. That's a winning situation. And it could address this now irritating mutism bit which is now unrealistic that he would have let it go on this long.

exactly, Raj's doctor parents would have taken him to specialists if nothing else, so it's beyond silly. Amy also needs a plot that doesn't involve her merely being a prop to move Sheldon along, so it's win win. Bernadette too as it save her from being Howard's mother.

Found this episode to be very confusing.  Going back and forth to D&D then to the girls.  Plus, the Santa seen at the end, not the best.  To be honest, season six has been a let down.  Where's krypky, Gablehausher, Leonerds mum, get those people back.  Has Chuck and Bill lost they way?
