    Evening Commissioner
    I just wanna be the guy who's fun and feared, And if I may say, I really dig the beard Everyone points and call me delirious, But I just laugh and ask, "Why so serious?"
    Well I broke out some cell-mates, and set them free And told them they were all just freaks like me If they wanna destroy Gotham, there's just one plan, It's obvious the only way is: kill the batman
    I destroyed half of Gotham by two or three, And I yelled to the batman, "Come on, hit me" Looked at Gotham, as it all laid in waste, Come on, batman, Lets put a smile on that face.
    That's awesome, Awesome bomb

    BAH! I couldn't talk bad on HIMYM, to me it's just gotten better and funnier over time

    I totally agree. Amy on her own is actually quite funny (her one line about Priya having the smoldering sexuality of a crouched bengal tiger remains one of my favorite lines of the entire series, for whatever reason) but the trade-off of neutering Sheldon's idiosyncrasies in the process of trying to evolve him just doesn't work. At all.

    I do, however, think that the burgeoning bromance between Stuart and Raj is rife with comedic potential. Should create an interesting triangle (or will it be a rhombus?) whenever Howard gets back from space, provided that it's written right.

    I couldnt disagree more. Dennis and I were talking about it the other day. I'd like them to go for 1 more season, but at the end of this one, introduce us to the mother, and use the final season to tell the story of how they get to the altar.

    I'll tell you something about HIMYM and BBT - people love to project the idea of themselves onto the characters in these shows or vice versa, not sure which - but it's definitely one! It has been happening for years - be it Friends or Seinfeld or That 70's Show or whatever, there is always characters you identify with yourself, whether or not it's even remotely true. People love to go - "Oh I'm SO much like Leonard/Kelso/Kramer/Chandler(etc)" while placing the less desirable ones onto their friends - "you're OUR groups Howard/Ross/George/Eric(etc)".

    The characters change and people in life doesn't change as fast.

    The other thing that happens is that fans come to feel so much a part of the show that they disapprove of story arcs. They forget - it's just TV. We don't own the characters and they don't owe us a damn thing.

    Couldn't disagree more. Show has been stale for a couple of seasons now. And between the first couple of episodes this season, I don't think I've managed more than a chuckle or two.

    don't get me wrong it's still one of the best sitcoms on tv (that or community)

    I recall you saying this to me some time ago and I haven't been able to look at him as Sheldon the same since!

    Meh, to each their own. While it hasn't been laugh out loud funny that has had me rolling every second, I'm vested into the show to get a few good laughs, plus the ending to the first episode had me on the edge of my seat

    Robstar you got an excellent point in your first paragraph
