Hubby and I looked in on the show last year and thought it was silly.We started watching the whole show and boy,did it grow on us.We have borrowed the seasons from friends and now we buy our own.We are 69 and 70 years old and actually enjoy the episodes more than once.Cudos to the writers and all the actors who make it work.

I don't want BBT to end, but I would love to see Jim in a serious role. I bet he would be just as amazing in a serious role as he is as Sheldon. Can't wait to see where his career goes from here.

I just discovered the BBT a few months ago, and I am hooked. All the characters are so talented, and of course Sheldon is the core of it all. BYW, I am 66 yrs old. I wish I had seen you win an award. This show should go on forever, the characters are adorable in their own way. Good Luck
