    FURIOUS 7-4/10; CINDERELLA-6/10

    THE BIG BANG THEORY continues its downward spiral in its 8th season. Most people complain about the focus switch from nerd humour to relationship melodrama. That doesn’t bother me as much as the fact that none of the main characters has been likeable in years. On the plus side, SHELDON showed a lot of improvement. Specially with the finale’s cliffhanger, which was very unexpected and exciting.
