You post here because probably at one point or another you were a huge fan of the show. I think most of us can agree that the show is a former shell of itself. So what changed? I think most people seem to think that the first two years at Sirius were awesome, in the third year, 2008, what happened? Howard married Beth. Along with marrying Beth came a tide wave of other things.. Howard was always awkward socially and never went out really. Beth would now drag him to these red carpet events, charity functions and Hamptons parties. Howard would mingle with celebrities and I think either he was embarrassed or both he and Beth were embarrassed at the way people recoiled in horror at the sight of â€œHoward Sternâ€. Howard decided he wanted to change to be more accepted; he was tired of being a bad boy outcast who garnered little to no respect from outside of his die-hard fan base. Howard was always a greedy fucking Jew. He always wanted to squeeze marbles from a stone.. so I donâ€™t really blame that on Beth. But everything else has come from her. Beth led to fancy events and parties. Beth lead to Howard dresses douchier. Beth led to Howardâ€™s entire private life revolving around animoes and photography. Beth. Beth. Beth. Beth. Beth. Howard becoming more of a douche and more "evolved" and sophisticated in his private life has a direct correlation to the show suffering.
