It is Parsons and his underrated brother Galecki whose romance breathes a true purpose to the series, going against each other, they are one strong team.
Almost a cultural hub and a dream project for the nerd and movie goers out there, The Big Bang Theory lift off from the first episode in ’07 possibly breaking many records on broadcasting and awards shows; this is another one of Chuck Lorre’s production as it too resembles with the others on its hardcore and counter argumentative humor. And unlike others, its witty and sharp humor doesn’t walk on ‘mundane sitcom rituals’ which they carried off till the mid series quite nicely after which the plot grew thin and humor got petty and childish to a point where viewers start to feel like it is some sort of homework that doesn’t end.
On performance level, Parsons doesn’t rely on his co-stars, he is literally the so-called one man army and the reason behind it, is not that he is given the range and content to flaunt his skills for even when the writing goes frizzy in its latter season, he delivers unflinchingly. On the other hand, Galecki is convincing throughout the series along with Helberg supporting him decently. The narrative that was once fluid, gripping and goofy has now turned into this misconceived mixture of rotten ideas and irrelevantly politically correct, that ought not to draw even a chuckle, let alone be intriguing enough to keep the audience tangled in these undercooked characters’ mundane life.
Another main reason, why the ideas narrowed down as it aged on screen was because of too many lead actors sharing the screen and the writers being restricted on offering and dividing the work or humor to each and everyone resulting into low quality of the final product. Even though the series have somehow found itself in the 12th season it still hasn’t offered much on character development- their work on Sheldon is appreciative but not worth the effort. The Big Bang Theory is another addition to Chuck Lorre production house, it may sound brainy, but is not even actually healthy, it is the junk food of sitcoms.
