I agree with Brenda, I guess the earlier season is better. I like very much season 3, then season 4 started to stink. I just watched season 5 episode 3, nothing in it..I was expecting the chair story could shake the audience, but it wasn't there. The episode was so lame...well..I will never watch again. Not until those funniest scenes back to the screen...

I'm disappointed in the direction Big Bang is taking -- seems the clever, intelligent banter has deteriorated to little more than sex talk --- these writers have more talent than that. Combined with the AMAZING amount of commercials to wade through, the new lowered level of writing makes the show much less appealing than in the beginning -- (and I also liked when Penney was the only girl)

This looks like a return to what we loved about the show. And another Next Generation star on the show, the nouveau Trekies must be so happy.
