After 10 seasons rumors were flying that The Big Bang Theory was going to call it quits as 10 seasons is an amazing feat for any series, but especially a half-hour comedy sitcom. To the surprise of many, however, the show was instead renewed for two more seasons, but it can’t be ignored that even the biggest fans are starting to lose interest. The series has had huge success, some criticism, and many awards, but here are 7 reasons why we are ready for The Big Bang Theory to come to an end:
7. Mounting Criticism
Despite its enormous popularity, The Big Bang Theory has always been a divisive show; however, it seems the longer it has gone on, the worse the criticism has become. While many thought playing off the stereotypes of a “dumb blonde” (Penny) and socially awkward “geeks” was offensive to begin with, many more have attacked the show for the humor not even being smart, despite the premise of the show. Now that it has lasted ten seasons, even those who appreciated the show are starting to offer their criticism, and it might just be better if the cast and crew quit while they are ahead, before criticism gets worse and ratings fall.
