Every scene should have a purpose.

Probably the most troubling aspect of The Big Bang Theory this season has been the fact that the girls have gotten individual scenes.

Why, you might say?

Well, I think the most obvious problem with this is that it has gone against the premise of the show. The Big Bang Theory was supposed to be about our four guys and a girl next door.

It was never meant to be about three girls.

The second problem with the girls having individual scenes is that it has marginalized Penny as a character. She used to be part of the gang and the voice of reason when the guys did something silly.

Nowadays she doesn't have a function on the show at all. That's bad too. She's useless even though she shouldn't be.

But the biggest problem I've had with this is that these individual girl scenes never have anything to do with the story.They're like cutaway scenes from Family Guy. They don't serve the story and are completely pointless.

This is so wrong. Every scene is always supposed to have a purpose. There aren't really any exceptions to this rule. 

The fact that they keep doing this over and over again just goes to show that they don't really care about their craft anymore.

If you don't belive me, watch the 'Stag Convergence' 5x22 with and without the girl scenes.

How is this even possible?
