I think that I have seen just about all of the shows but I cannot recall ever seeing a picture of Wolowitz's mom. Of course it is possible that you might need a wide angle lens to do so. Maybe something like IMAX.

I would love to see Joan Rivers as a guest star playing Penny's grandmother. It would be so much fun

It puzzles me that TBBT has not gotten any best comedy award when it is the funniest show right now. Lots of my friends notice the same thing. How do they choose the winner?
