wish the show would return to its old cast of "4 scientists with social problems" from "3 couples with relationship problems"... it's very sad to watch this show turn from something I loved to something I despise...Inclusion of Amy and Bernadette has certainly ruined the show.

This show is getting worse season after season. I am watching this show from its first season, old sheldon was lot better. Quality was better back then. Now this show is same as some other stupid sitcoms. Adding a lot of characters has made this more complex. Some may like the idea of Sheldon falling in love with somebody but I bet they did not watch the show from the beginning. This show was lot better when there were 4 socially awkward researchers trying to understand the social complexities and Penny, the most normal person, helping them constantly. Now as they added lot of other characters : less time with penny, less time with Sheldon, less time with Leonard, less time with Raj and Howard; More relationship talk. less science jokes.

When is Amy Mainzer going to be on a show?

The show is not funny anymore. The writers are changing Sheldon's personality, and the other characters are not going anywhere. It's like Friends, but less funny. Even the acting is poor. Things MUST get a bit more crazy, like in season 3!

Does Simon wear his hair piece to the studio or is it applied before filming ?

Haven't seen a decent comedy show since the Golden Girls.This one tops it.Love it so much we even watch re-runs of the videos we bought.Sheldon is my favourite, but still like everyone else.

What laugh track? I'm too busy laughing to notice.

This show has been getting worse season after season. Its not funny anymore and is just turning into a show about people's social problems. No genuine comedy anymore.

The show is still good, but it is becoming a show mostly about Sheldon and his annoying habits.The writers need to bring it back to the core group having equal time and issues on the show.
