Sara Gilbert has left the building?

According to Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly, Sara Gilbert has been switched from series regular to recurring star because writers couldn't think of much to do with her character. The actress, who worked with Chuck Lorre & Johnny Galecki before on hit show Roseanne, was made a series regular before the start of season 2 but has since appeared less and less.

Sara will still appear on the show as Leslie Winkle and is scheduled to appear in an upcoming episode.

I love this series. Penny is funny, a perfect blend of characters. Where is the "comic book" store?

They can't think of anything to do with the character, but they can add a lame physicist who can't pronounce his R's, as a "foil" for Sheldon. Seems like the usual formulaic structure that dogs other mediocre sitcoms.
