Thursday night’s finale for “The Big Bang Theory” was almost the rehearsal dinner for a second wedding for Leonard and Penny, one that their families never had much of a chance to experience the first time around. Is that going to change moving into the start of season 10? It may be a little early to know for-certain, but some signs point to “yes.”
As we kick off this new wishlist piece, remember that we’re just speculating about where TV’s #1 comedy could go from here. There may not be too many stones left unturned, but there are still some.
Penny’s family – Executive producer Steve Molaro told Entertainment Weekly that this is something he wants to do next season, and that gives us hope that Keith Carradine will also be back as her father Wyatt. Sure, he may be busy over on “Madam Secretary,” but at least it’s another CBS show and it is not as though you are pulling someone from another network or a complicated gig elsewhere.
Raj gets something real – This character has been the victim of a disservice for most of the past few years, featuring him bouncing around to various girlfriends with little payoff or screen time. Presumably, him having his relationship with Claire blow up in his face is realistic, since it is something a guy like him would do when he gets that sort of “power” (if you want to call it that) for the first time and develops an ego. Another fooling around. Whether it be romantically or professionally, give him something to celebrate.
Sheldon really achieves something – While he may be the character with the highest overall IQ (at least so we think), how come he hasn’t had a breakthrough in ages? We don’t want to lose that side of character as he continues other facets of his personal journey.
A new journey for Stuart – We love the character, and still wouldn’t mind if this “journey” is over to a new spin-off where he gets to develop a new life for himself somewhere else.
