Television comedies usually start slow and build an audience. This show started strong with amazing characterizations and wonderfully brilliant scripting, and is now just dithering. Raj and his phone? There was kind of a "Lars and the Real Girl" vibe to it, but not very funny. Sheldon's Fun with Flags? How the mighty have fallen. So weak. Howard and Bernadette barely showed up. Leonard and Penny's relationship has run it's course and needs to reach it's logical conclusion. I yearn for the wonderfully wacky energy of the first couple seasons. We can only hope it returns.

Please! Get rid of the canned laughter. The show is wonderful and the false, loud, guffaws ruin it.
