I noticed a difference in writing, but I wouldn't start worrying. You can't judge a whole season just by its first 3 episodes.

I personally found this episode to be a bit dull, but the first two episodes oh season 3 had some great lines in them. So I wouldn't panic and start thinking it's the beggining of the end, as there have been equally unexciting episode in the previous seasons. It's just a matter of inspiration - some days are better than others. And no offence to the people who did enjoy this episode; I'm a big fan myself.

Not as funny as their other episodes ... the geek humor that edged them out last two seasons are becoming to wither away as the characters try to "blend in" with the normal world. we have to succumb to the fact that TBBT must cater to bigger audiences, and along with it the story becomes relatable or worse, formulaic and stereotypical.

they've lost their smart humor, the edge that it had over other shows in previous seasons. now it just seems like any old sitcom. it may as well be two straight episodes of two and a half men.

I thought maybe it was just me--not nearly as funny--so far.

I have noticed the writing is different, too. No physics talk?
