So Take The Photographs and Still Frames In Your Mind
The Big Bang Theory is coming to an end. The astoundingly popular sitcom’s twelfth season will be its last. Depending on who you ask, the show is a celebration of all things that make being a nerd great. Or it’s the show that found a clever way to bully nerds by tricking them into thinking it was on their side. Furthermore, it draws ire from those who think the show’s jokes lean too heavily on played-out gender and sexual stereotypes.
That being said, Jim Parsons earned his Emmy fair and square. The man has to memorize intricate patterns of dialog, often strung together with hardly a breath in between. It’s a hard sell, and Parsons sold it like gangbusters. Also, the cast displays excellent chemistry; the characters bounce off each other with an energy that’s hard to find in a lot of multi-cam sitcoms. Especially with the scripts they have to work with.
As the show plugged along, it became a bona fide phenomenon. Moms across the country tuned in to follow the exploits of those “lovable” nerds and started referring to their kids as “such a Sheldon!” The cast made appearances at various cons around the world, and celebrities including Wil Wheaton and Mark Hamill popped up regularly. So as our national nerd nightmare draws to a close, let us remember that the real bazinga was in our hearts all along. Goodbye, The Big Bang Theory, subreddits at least you gave us one of the strangest (and funniest) out there.
