The PC Thug: Five Reasons Why It’s Time for “The Big Bang Theory” To End

I am a big fan of “The Big Bang Theory.” I love the show, I think it’s hilarious, it consistently makes me laugh, and if I’m bored I’ll turn on cable and sit through a three hour marathon on TBS here in America. I’ve been watching it since season one and have found its ability to change its mold and renew itself entertaining, time and time again. The shift from a gimmicky sitcom about four geeky guys and the hot girl next door to four geeky guys learning to navigate actual relationships with three women has been fun to experience. That said, “The Big Bang Theory” really needs to end in season eleven.

With Season ten currently in progress here in America, it doesn’t look like the show is preparing to resolve all of its sub-plots, so I think it’s fair for the show to end on season eleven and go out on a high note. I mean, it would be great if the show ended on a high. It made its point and proved all its critics wrong. It lasted over a decade as one of the highest rated shows on TV, it has a massive following, and it’s so popular even the syndicated reruns on basic cable draw in so many viewers, they’ve managed to earn bigger ratings than original cable TV series’. It’s time for “The Big Bang Theory” to end, and here’s why.

The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Sixth Season (DVD)

TBBT6One of the funniest and most popular sitcoms on television is back with its sixth season, probably one of the most realized and unique seasons of the hit series. After wisely adjusting its formula about four geeks and the hot girl next door, “The Big Bang Theory” slowly became an ensemble series about four geeky guys and the women that love them in spite of their odd obsessions. “The Big Bang Theory” is as funny as ever, and despite criticism from “fan boys” on the net, still a ratings juggernaut that promises to continue into ten seasons.

Big Bang Theory: A XXX Parody (2010)

aMG91IEIf you want to revel in the sexuality of “Big Bang Theory” and want to avoid all of the stuff like plot and comedy, “Big Bang Theory: A XXX Parody” really will do the trick. Fans of the series will especially enjoy how the parody skirts copyright infringement by copying every set piece from the show. Sans the comic book and science fiction paraphernalia. So uber-Sheldon doesn’t wear superhero shirts, so much as he wears shirts that kind of look like they could be superhero emblems.

The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Fifth Season (DVD) (2011)

“The Big Bang Theory” is currently my favorite sitcom on television and in its fifth season, it’s managed to show that its characters have evolved greatly since the pilot. Only four years ago, the series was very much about four geniuses who learned how to socialize thanks to their sexy and ditzy neighbor. And now in its fifth season, the characters have grown, changed, and evolved.

The cast grew from an original five in to seven characters, and the once womanizing obnoxious Howard Wolowitz is a man on the verge of marriage and experiencing a major step forward in his career as an engineer. As with all the seasons of the series, this season is ripe with geek references and major geek guest stars, and it doesn’t let its fan base down a bit.

The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Third Season (DVD) (2009)

The series that many were afraid wouldn’t last beyond one season is now going on to season four, and the release of season three sees something of a rut within a rather entertaining and easily charming television series that has appealed to fanboys and nerds across the board since its premiere. While I’m not a fan of the comparisons to “Friends,” the CBS series about four brilliant geniuses obsessed with their toys and video games balanced by their ditzy neighbor Penny is about as close to get to a strong and potentially long lasting ensemble comedy.

“The Big Bang Theory” has appealed to folks like me for years since its series premiere, and sadly the third season is not the best that the writers have to offer. After returning from the Arctic, the guys come home to a new way of life, one of which involves Leonard’s relationship with Penny that meets its obstacles. One of them is the lack of clear sexual tension and romantic tension that the first two seasons strived in.

The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Second Season (DVD) (2009)

I think the more the series goes on the more it begins to feel like a clever sitcom from the BBC because when you see season two you can see all the pieces finally coming together. All the awkwardness and flaws from season one are practically gone and more intelligent humor is implemented to make this one of the smarter comedy series on television.

You assume a creaky premise with a hotty living among four science geeks would be filled with formula plotting and tired jokes; instead what we get is some interesting episodes involving the relationship between Leonard and Penny, along with more of Sheldon’s ever growing list of quirks and idiosyncrasies that help propel the show to heights that most modern sitcoms can’t.

The Big Bang Theory: The Complete First Season (DVD) (2008)

“The Big Bang Theory” had every chance to fail. It was a forgettable premise, a formula concept and really didn’t look to offer up anything new. And yet it ended up being really good and addictive. I watched the pilot when it premiered and stuck with it because in spite of the broad comedy, cheesy gimmick, and pretty exhausting pop culture references, it’s an amusing and charming sitcom with some good laughs in store if you want to give it a chance.

And as the season went on the little things started to really respond to fans. I like how the broken elevator has now become a character all in its own with a hint of realism. I like how Jim Parson’s character has become a staple of the show with episodes just not the same without him.
