Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

I feel like the show has become too formulaic. I like the fact that they've expanded the cast, but the current formula now seems to require that every episode has a B-story and possibly C-story that's used to make sure all 7 characters get a decent amount of screen time.

And, in part as a consequence of the aforementioned requirement to give everyone their share of screen time, every episode's plot seems to focus too exclusively on the relationships between the main characters.

Not that I'm against such stories being told, but I'd like to see them try doing some more episodes that break the usual format, and focus on something happening in the life of one of the characters that isn't primarily about their relationship to one of the other main 7. Perhaps a few more episodes without any B- or C-stories. It seems like they did this a bit more in Seasons 1 and 2, and I miss it.
