  • Season 3 Premiere

    Leonard & Penny getting together? The moment we've all been waiting for? I don't think so, I think the writers could have held this relationship over our heads for a while longer. I mean I know it's been 2 seasons, but these two getting together could ruin the chemistry of the show. I have no problem with these two getting together, in fact I was rooting for them. But we could have got more buildup or development between the two.

    The one liners were lazily written, and you could just tell TBBT lost a bit of it's spark. I mean the group going to Texas to apologize to Sheldon? The whole cowboy hat thing was ridiculously unfunny, and it was something you'd see on 2 1/2 Men. I just know that TBBT is known as a clever show, and this episode surely wasn't very clever. Hopefully the next episode is better, and Penny & Leonard sleeping together wont affect this show too much.
