| A once great show, now a fan-fiction.
What this review might have sounded like had I written it 7 years ago.

The first few seasons are, for the most part, extremely fantastic, focused, funny, fresh, intelligent and even at times, brilliant...Must see TV!

What this review sounds like now nearing the end of the shows run.

A once great show which slowly starts to diminish around season 4, unfortunately. By the 9th season it seems as though the pen and paper have been handed over to teenage fans of the show...Decent background noise.

To conclude.

This show was once incredible, and something fresh, even at times brilliant. I couldn't wait for each new episode. Now, I watch it when it becomes available on a streaming service, and, on rare occasion you get a great episode, but it's not worth devoting a weekly schedule and sitting through all the fan-fiction episodes and story lines to get to the good stuff. The show can still be enjoyable, without question, though I find it better suited as background noise while doing work instead of must see TV that you're excited to tune in as it airs each week.

Trivia

In the early episodes of season one, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) has two character traits that were not established right away. First, he understood the nature of romantic and sexual relationships. In the first few episodes, he chides Leonard (Johnny Galecki) for his hopes of getting into a relationship with Penny (Kaley Cuoco), often telling Leonard that he has no chance of having sex with her. Also, Sheldon understood the nature of sarcasm, as he occasionally used it himself in the early episodes. Later, his character evolved into a purely intellectual person and an emotional "man-child", who does not fully understand sex, love, or sarcasm. Second, in the early episodes, Sheldon did not use his three-times knock (knock-knock-knock "Penny", et cetera) that has become one of the character's now well known idiosyncrasies that did not begin until midway through season one.


Quotes

Sheldon: Stop pawing at me like you're a Bear and I'm a Trash Can full of Swedes!


Goofs

Sometimes there's a fire alarm and emergency instructions notice next to the elevator and sometimes there isn't.


Crazy Credits

One of the final cards to appear in the credit sequence is the vanity card for Chuck Lorre Productions. In keeping with his practice on "Dharma and Greg" and "Two and a Half Men", there is a different message on the card each week, written by Chuck Lorre himself.
