I have watched every episode and I wait for the next. I hope the show lasts a few more seasons as I'm sure it brings pleasure and a quite a few laughs to many people. By the way I am 70 years old and I still get the jokes.

Penny needs to leave the show. Even with the little she has "added" In the last few episodes she seems to be dead weight to the fluidness of the characters. Plus -speakingof dead weight; it seems as if shes gained about thirty pounds since the beginning of the show. The weight must be have been gained from all that "t.v. Money" and the lack of trying to do a good job.

How come Sheldon wears bus pants on the bus but when he goes to a movie he does not need movie pants??

I'd like to see an episode where the elevator gets fixed, Penny and Sheldon are riding it down to do laundry when an earthquake hits and stalls it. Trapped Sheldon must comfort the panicky Penny and when he holds her he finds himself sexually aroused and she notices. He will have to deal with his own fear and his realization that he can be aroused by women. Howard uses his engineering skills to plan a rescue with all the rest helping him. They save the duo just as the elevator breaks loose and crashes down to the bottom and is once again broke bringing the set back to it's original state. Hope the writers read this, I'd love to see an episode like this.
