It have watched the present season's first 6 episodes by now.
And I must say:  I accused the show of losing it's nerdy/scientific focus (which made it so unique), and becoming more standard sitcom like. But the season premiere was different in that matter:

The first two episodes dealt with Leonard being away on the research ship, the rest of the gang missing him, and their ways of dealing with it.  Again standard sitcom material. Yet -for these two episodes- it seemed RIGHT.  They did not come across as "We are too lazy to come up with a scientific or nerdy theme", but as "In that situation, there is no need for scientific/nerdy focus".

In fact, these two episode are the first which made me consider that -when being properly written- Big Bang CAN work as occasional standard sitcom (with a VERY big emphasis on OCCASIONAL. In fact...VERY occasional episodes, please).

Yet -judging from the first 6 episodes- the scientific/nerdy focus is still too low and needs some improvement for the show to live up to old standards (or to get at least close).

God.. this show has more and more flanderization..

Stuart is becaming esentially Dr.Zoidberg ..to the point of being absurd.. hi shop had allways costumers in it and even he was friends with Weathon.. now we are suposed to forget all that and just pretend he never gets costumers?

Bernadette is becaming quite irritating..   yes we get it.. its funny that the nice small educated lady sudenly turns into rage mode... you dont need to do that 24/7 now

And Rajh is now like 107% homoerotic jokes?


What are even Leonard, Rajh and Howard working on anyway? ..as fair as i know CALTECH just pays them for being arround

i will keep watching this as i usually keep watching the shows i get on until the bitter end (i have very few shows to watch anyway)
