These past few weeks, I've been experiencing a hiatus in my writing due to contractual obligations. Therefore, to save time, I have combined last week and this week's review into one jam-packed article, starting with how great they've ended this season.
Happiness or even bliss may not describe how great I've felt after this week of television: finale week. The TV industry gets boisterous once again for a while before settling down for 4 months. There have been many hiatuses which caused a decrease in viewership for ALL shows, not just one or two. As you all know from HIMYM, they really surprised me with the revealing of the tituliar character, which is pretty much static for now.
As TBBT moved on to end season 6, they terminated a joke that actually eroded in season 4: Raj's inability to talk to women. However, let's take a step back to last week before we discuss the finale. The ladies are going to Vegas while the guys have an "anything can happen" Dungeons and Dragons night. When Amy isn't allowed to fly, the girls come over and make the night a unisex one. Everyone's happy, but Raj leaves. During the course of the game, we see everyone's inner geek coming out, and it is laughable and reminiscing simultaneously. On the other hand, Raj and Lucy discuss her social anxiety and try to resolve it. Sorry, only Raj tries, and Lucy runs out through the washroom.
While playing, everyone ridicules Shamy and casts a Love Spell on them. Amy runs in crying to be followed by Sheldon entering while trying to comfort her. I think at that point, the show manifested its best ploys by switching from happy to emotional in a second. Meanwhile, Raj and Lucy shared their first kiss through a fence: it felt weird, funny, yet so deep and significant.
The finale acts like a part II for Raj and Lucy, who still haven't figured out what they're relationship is. I've been speculating whether this relationship would last or not, but it didn't: Lucy called it off via text message. Their relationship seemed to be the best part of season six for Raj, and the best storyline for him in a while. However, as we move into season 7, we are back with the same three couples in september.
However, we are unsure whether the Leonard-Penny bit will work out, but they do love each other. Thus, their break-up is unlikely. The entire episode revoled around Sheldon's green monster, but maybe he felt a spark of happiness for Leonard during his toast. The funny was inserted when Sheldon reminded Leonard that things with Penny may not be "homeostasis" (as he said at the starting of the season)
Penny supports her boyfriend, and even throws him a party. According to her, the party section is the wine section, even after the season 4 calamity. She explains how a blonde waitress-actress, similar to her, got a commercial instead of her. However, she just smiled and said she was happy. In Sheldon's words, "Lie and avoid being petty." Sheldon does get convinced once he sees Penny's teeth, similar to when she gobbled a dumpling last season,
Overall, TBBT ended well, with two excellent episodes. I wish the entire TV industry good luck for the coming fall season, and may everyone prosper. During the summer, I hope to extend the variety offered by the blog. Thanks for reading this season, see y'all in a few weeks...
