To get things going they need to let Raj start talking to women - and have him come out of the closet. I think a visit from Sheldon's never-seen Meemaw could help Raj figure out his problems. (Meemaw, by the way, should be played by Lily Tomlin.)

by Anonymousreply 1401/20/2011

They relied to heavily on Sheldon and his Asperger schtick. Which I still find funny, but the other characters are terribly underdeveloped and one-dimensional. And Sheldon's girlfriend only adds to this issue. The excitement about her flawed personality wore off very quickly. And Johnny Galecki is getting on my nerves. He is terrible in this show. I guess developing his character was futile because the acting wouldn't deliver anything.

by Anonymousreply 1501/20/2011

R14, my BF and I were saying the same thing last night. Not necessarily about Raj coming out, I don't really find the guy gay, just truly sensitive. I do find in crazy adorable though and think in real life he's likely sort of hot, or could be.

The think with him not talking to women is old and should have stopped in Season 1. It doesn't allow his character to be himself half the time and is just sort of silly, especially when you consider he should get comfortable around women like Penny who he's known now for a couple of years.

Last season they over-did the Sheldon shtick with me and I'm still sort of sick of him. They've backed off a bit this season likely realizing they overdid it.

I like Wolowitz's girlfriend. She's used well, can act, is cute and it works. Like Penny, you can buy it. That stupid Blossom woman's robotic delivery was asinine in her first scene and is just painful to watch now. They basically thought a female Sheldon would be hysterical but it's just a big turn off.

Amy Farrah Fowler, started off as one note, but she's gotten progressively funny over time. And I do like the trio of women being played off the guys.%0D %0D Meanwhile, I keep thinking like an adult Mayim Bialik is still a lot better to look at than Bette Midler. (She played Bette Midler as a girl in Beaches). I wanted to start a thread about that, i.e., child stars who play childhood versions of adult stars and how the comparison fares as the child actors grow up. But the oonnly othher actor I cooulld think of was Seth Green playinng a young Woody Alllen inn Radiioo days.

Sheldon is not a "horndog." Do you even watch the show? When he recently fled to Amy's apartment for the night they made a joke out of his sleeping on the couch. Amy said, "There's only so many times a girl can offer her bed." And this week, Sheldon's obligation to go to the birthday party with Amy was due to their "friendship agreement," not because they have a sexual relationship.

In the latest episode Penny cracks a joke that Sheldon has not yet hit puberty (so Amy cannot use witholding sex to pressure Sheldon into treating her better). While Sheldon is a genius he's quite a spoiled infant brat in social situations. Was it ever established that Sheldon has Asbergers? The show occasionally makes a joke about his religious mom testing him for being crazy, but the test results were negative or something like that.

Blossom wrote a book about parenting. She may have a PhD in neuro physics but her parenting theories are scary.

I know it's Bernadette's voice, not Melissa's, and it does suit the character. No criticism of the actress was intended, just personal taste, although I think the U.S./U.K. thing does apply. There was a U.K. comedy series - 'Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps' (U.K. 'crisps' = U.S. 'potato chips') which had a similar-voiced character and it fitted her because she was an annoying prat, the voice (also not the actress' real voice) just added to the effect. In the U.K. we're up to the middle of series 5. Looking forward to Stephen Hawking's appearance - can't wait to see how him and Sheldon get on!

Like Karen Walker's voice became a shrill almost indecipherable screech that was far different from the first few shows, the Bernadette character needs to take it down some.

On the other hand, when they had her go into an almost exact duplication of Mrs Wolowitz's voice, I practically fell off the couch laughing.

Nothing I love more than seeing Sheldon confused as to what to do about something that he doesn't understand. Standing still, looking around for some kind of guidance that never comes to him. Jim Parsons is a comic genius.

What I like is the subtle but persistent undertone of unspoken homo desire between Raj and Wolowitz, but both are too straight-edged to acknowledge it properly.

You also notice that frantic skirtchaser Wolowitz really stops all that when he gets with Bernadette and becomes his homely, settled one-woman guy who doesn't much look at anything else.

There's also loads of unrequited gay tension between Penny and Amy. Amy is basically a hardcore, sock-wearing lesbian and Penny is a terrified straight girl who cannot get away from her. It's hilarious. The painting of Penny and Amy with Penny's 'manly hands' I think sort of symbolises that Amy would love for Penny to be her man, or her protector and that's she's submissive to Penny in her imagination.

I think my fav homo moment was when Sheldon unwittingly asked that HOT guy in the campus canteen for his number for a sexual hookup (intended for Penny) but of course the guy thought he was being asked by Sheldon and seemed delighted. Superb little moments like that.

I also boggle at how Leonard manages to snag all the women. It just seems beyond the realms of possibility but then some guys do have that under the radar appeal.

Sheldon's mom and Leslie Winkle are two major favs of mine. I also like Kripky (sp?). He gets hotter in a geeky way every time I see him because he's quite forceful and manly with his nerdiness and he's always up for a fight with Sheldon. There might be some unresolved tension there but it's played well enough to be written off as just rivalry.

They're such nerds, I love this show, and all the characters. I'm always surprised how anyone can pick holes in it.

This is the best comedy on tv and has been since it's debut. Great writing. Every episode has a laugh out loud moment . Thoughtful casting. Laurie Metcalf is brilliant as Sheldon's mother. Great chemistry. All the actors, even the bit players, play off each other beautifully. It rates right up there with the great comedies of the fifties. And then there is Jim Parsons. Genius. He has brought to life a character as original and iconic as Lucy Ricardo, Ralph Kramden, Diane Chambers, Kramer, well, you get the idea. Amy is the perfect foil for Sheldon. They are one of tv's quirkiest and most endearing couples. Love them both and I hope they each bring home an Emmy this year.

I think Jim Parsons is cute though I'm not loving the longer hair. I think the shorter cut is more flattering and gives Sheldon an otherworldly look that fits the character. Guys like Leonard get girls because he is sensitive, funny and smart. And when Galecki loses the glasses he's quite attractive. Helgerg has a face made for comedy. And I mean that in the best way. He is a brilliant comic actor. And the writers know it. He gets the best lines. It's rumored that Raj will get a love interest this season and I hope it's true. Kaley doesn't seem to get the attention Parsons does but she is no less talented and Penney's love/hate relationship with Sheldon has mined some of the best moments on the show. In a parallel universe, Penny would be Sheldon's dream girl. And that makes me smile.

They started with the bi-curious, gay angle with Raj years ago and it looked like they were going to make him gay. But then they got scared, probably figuring people already thought all their chracters were gay, since being butch was hardly a leading quality.

Now supposedly Raj will have a real girlfriend. It will be interesting to see how they do this since they still are carrying on with this "can't talk unless drunk" crap.

[R178] I loved that tiara scene! That was hilarious! Biaylik may not be conventionally pretty or play a sympathetic character but the writers have given her more to work with and Mayim Bialik is genuinely very talented. A lot of the fan boys don't like the original premise messed with but the characters have to breathe and grow. Howard can't be a horndog living at home forever.

While I'm in no hurry for the Sheldon character to actually have sex, I'm thrilled that he actually has a girlfriend, as uncomfortable as it is for him. She's as smart as he is, she calls his bluff and makes him do things he doesn't want to. Hurray for Amy!

The only time in the last couple of seasons it has been funny are with guests stars (Bob Newhart and Billy Bob Thorton), which goes to show they have run out of stories for the characters. Characters are predictable, stories are nonexistant. And WTF was with the Thanksgiving episode where Raj's father sat in the background with only a few lines to say?! They finally bring one of Raj's parents on after all these years for ... nothing? Ironic the stars are getting a million an episode now because it is at the lowest in quality ever.
