Big Bang Theory Review....a tad late

Hi everyone, sorry for the late update.  Just trying to get into the swing of things at the new firm, so updates may be a tad sporadic.

Well, it was the season finale of Big Bang Theory on Monday, and it was alright.  The episode advanced some running plot lines, especially the constant romantic tension between Leonard and Penny.  That aspect of the plot was pretty satisfying, and I was glad that they didn't opt for the sappy and unrealistic overly-happy ending.

Sheldon was one of the funniest characters, but that tends to be par for the course.  Jim Parsons is so funny in that role, and more people should really be aware of it.  He is a comedic star in waiting, and I wouldn't be shocked if he started popping up in movies (like Jason Segel's path from How I Met Your Mother to feature length star) very soon.

But overall, this episode just felt like it didn't really go anywhere.  I really can't put my finger on it, but it just seemed stagnant.  The episode wasn't up to the highest levels we've seen with this show, but it certainly wasn't bad.

Rating:  3 out of 5
