I was a huge fan of this show but it seemed like after season 7 if just changed way to much. Howard and Bernadette are almost like a different show all to themselves like a light version of "Al and Peg Bundy" Leonard and Penny don't even act like a married couple. They live within the boundaries of Sheldon's narcissism. The episodes lately are becoming more drama and less funny. Less about the nerd stuff, and even though I know characters need to evolve its like they evolved to quickly but this show has lost a lot of what made is different from other half hour sitcoms.
