The Big Bang Theory - Season 6 (US Pace) ***Spoilers***

Thought the first episode was a bit lame and the Raj & Stuart scene was just cringe worthy

Howard in space scenes were quite funny though, still in the middle of arguments with Bernadette and his mother

I do hope it improves otherwise i can see this being the last season

this is CBS's new cash cow to replace two and half men. it will continue to become broader and more vanilla in order to attract as many viewers as possible. the early seasons had focus and an identity that simply isn't there now. it is just generic sit-com 101.

Didn't laugh once. For a season opener especially this was really poor.

Think i'm going to give up on this show. The early seasons were amazing when it was more "nerd" focused. As fattyboombatty said it's just another generic sitcom now.

I thought this was a good episode! I laughed several times.

I wonder if Howard was in the Vomet Comet actually weightless to do those scenes? It looked very real.

I was actually thinking how tacky that part was, and that he was clearly on a stool with wheels that had just been photoshopped out.

The show is a shadow of what it used to be.

I hope so. Raj has been gay and not realising it most of the show.

Not convinced he's gay at all. He's shy about women, he's shagged at least one very hot one. He's not shy around men, and hasn't as far as I can see shagged one.

However, I reckon that they'll decide he is gay, figuring they'll have extra viewers.

They hinted very strongly at it last season. I just want them to get it over with.

Which was? I can only remember Danica McKellar, but we don't know that he did.

There's been a few attractive ones. He ended up with one of Penny's friends at a party who said he was 'a really good listener' (I think this was before he'd discovered alcohol let him talk to women).

Penny. But you're right, we haven't had definitive proof. I'll only accept video.

Personally, I hate these things when it's purely demographic led. Happened in Buffy with Willow.

Which would be a weird way to go given that Jim Parsons (Sheldon) actually is gay. Considering his character has shown zero romantic interest in women that would make more sense.

Not really, as Sheldon's never shown any romantic interest in anyone. He's not gay or straight. He's essentially asexual.

Making Sheldon gay really would be jumping the shark.

Even if he did sleep with Penny, its not unheard of for someone who's gay to sleep with a woman and looking for continuity in a show like this is a fools game.

Raj never slept with Penny anyway. He never lasted that far!

Wasn't there an early episode where an evil version of Willow was gay, I assumed it had been planned since then.

He slept with a girl in episode 6 at the fancy dress party and then was with the deaf girl for over a month, then the girl he met when with Sheldon (Green Lantern) and lastly Penny
