I see that many of you feel that Raj's role in the show is dying, and I totally agree. I myself think that Raj is one of the funniest and most important persons on the show, and they need to find a way to include him in the show again. Nevertheless, I don't agree with all those who want everything to go back to the way it was, with Amy out of the way, Penny and Leonard immediately back together and Sheldon to go back to the way he used to be. In order for the show to develop and evolve, certain changes will have to be made. I think people will get used to the changes eventually, even though they might be somewhat unfamiliar at the moment! :)

Getting Sheldon and Amy together would be the kiss of death to the show - history has proved that.

I love that the show is evolving and including new characters. I really like Amy's character and can't wait until something happens between her and Sheldon! Though I also like Bernadette, I do agree something needs to be done for Raj.

Iím completely disappointed with the last three episodes. If this show keeps going on Amy this Amy that road, then that is it for me. No more!

I love the show. All characters are great, but this season the red line is going down. Sheldon is in the last three episodes getting more childish. I understand that some people write that they want the old Sheldon back, that includes me. Introducing Amy was a great success, with the best episode the spreading of gossips ("Sheldon and I had intercorse" and "I'm pregnant). But now she is a bit dying, there is no funny interaction with Sheldon anymore. Raj is also dying in the show since Howard is engaged with Bernadette. Mr Chuck Lorre has some work to do!
