It's hard to Keep a series funny and exciting for a 9th season: Big Bang succeeds, kinda. Two couples now married and Amy & Sheldon are committed, so there's a lot of almost suffocating domesticity and nagging. Raj is the bright spot, dating two girls at the same time, hilarious ! Sheldon's "Meemaw" finally visits, and isn't a sweet lil' old lady! Comic book guy appears throughout the season, and they paint him a little too weird at times. Couldn't give this five stars, it's lacking the LOL bodaciousness of previous seasons, but they're still like -able and often funny.
