Shamy

November 18, 2011

The Big Bang Theory is a popular television sitcom. The show follows a group of four socially-awkward nerds as they try to balance work and life and the ladies.

For more than a season now, the show has been skirting the concept of having the asexual Sheldon getting a girlfriend. Sheldon has been paired with the similarly asexual Amy. Or so we thought she was asexual.

It has been a slow burn, but gradually Amy has been revealing her sexual desires. Amy has been both drunkenly propositioning Sheldon for sexual services and often making inappropriate compliments to the slutty waitress next door Penny.

For several episodes now, I’ve been wondering where the show is going to go with Amy. Last night, the Shamy went officially online. Sheldon presented a Relationship Agreement document to Amy.

As much as this journey has been entertaining, I fear this may be the show’s jumping the shark moment.

Five years ago, the show began with the four nerds and the slutty waitress next door. In the past year or so, the show has added a fiancee for one of the nerds and Amy. The cast of five is now a cast of seven. I find that often there are episodes that lack story-lines for two of the seven. With the ever-increasing length of commercial breaks, the half-hour television show has been shortened to mere seconds over twenty minutes. That does not leave enough time for the producers to implement a quality b-story in an episode.

But the good news today, if there is anything good worth taking from this story, is that Shamy is now official.

    While I don’t like that Amy has changed so much since she was introduced, I don’t mind the fact that they have added more characters although I see your point about certain characters not getting much of a storyline in certain episodes.

    I’m not a Big Bang fangirl, but I’ve watched a couple of episodes recently. I don’t enjoy Amy’s character. I find her annoying, unrealistic, and not funny at all. Some of the other characters get good lines, but as far as I’m concerned they could lose Amy entirely to improve the show.
