I wonder if the Howard/Bernadette story line was a bit too close the the rumors about Jim Parson's own feelings about children

Absolutely love TBBT!! I can watch every DVD over and over. Love the new characters on the show and the overall dynamic. Keep up the good work!!!!

I hate to say it, but it feels more and more like TBBT is jumping the shark. I love the first three seasons--often rewatch them. The new stuff though is getting too complex to be fun. The whole girlfriends thing is adding nothing *fun* to the show, which is a *comedy*. If I wanted heavy issues about couples disagreeing about children I'd watch a drama series. I miss the awkward geeks that just hung out as friends and saw the world through their own silly lens. I really hope the writing improves going forward.

I have all the seasons on DVD but only enjoy the 1st three. When everything changed, esp. with Amy, I felt like I lost my best friend. Bring back the old days. Sheldon is not a cuddle-bunny!
