Good points. I agree.
In my opinion, the best thing the writers ever did with Sheldon was to place him in one-on-one interactions with Penny. For me, some of the most memorable moments from the show are those: Sheldon hugging Penny after she gave him the Leonard Nimoy signed napkin; the first time Penny took care of Sheldon and she sang "Soft Kitty" to him; the time Sheldon was locked out of his apartment and stayed at Penny's and she sang "Soft Kitty" to him so he could sleep; and when Penny dislocated her shoulder in the shower and Sheldon had to help her dress before going to the hospital. The "Penny, Penny, Penny" knocking thing was cute for a while, especially when Penny started making a game of different ways to answer the door. They've probably gone to the well enough on that joke now.
Maybe after 5 seasons I'm just burned out on the show. For me, they have milked the situation dry.
Yeah, really, the only thing really left to do is to let the much less intense version of the Ross-Rachel romance that is Leonard and Penny play out to a satisfying end. The Sheldon Show is played out and needs to die.
The one I enjoy and find the most humor in consistently now is Raj.
