I'm tired of seeing Raj as a drunk. I know he isn't shown as a raging alcoholic or anything. The problem is that the show keeps rolling on and the rate of women in the show has increased 200%. So having Raj in different scenes then Penny was possible. Eventually drinking made it possible to make shows easier to work with for writers. And now we have far too many scenes that could involve a woman and Raj so as a result you have the whisper or the drinking. Lately the drinking has simply increased so as to get factual words out of his mouth. He does get paid to do more then pretend whisper and smile after all. I would like to see this get fixed, essentially get Raj to actually start talking together. I am sure writers can come up with things but as it is Raj seems to be a smiling drunk most of the time.
