I wish we could see more of Emily. I'm a natural redhead, and I was digging the idea of a little red haired girl joining the main cast, especially at Raj's side.

I agree with Sanchia, Emily is a creepy character and has zero chemistry with Raj.

what happened to penny, she was always dressed so nice now she dresses like a bum,it was bad enough she cut that beautiful hair, now she is dressing like a slob.

Love EMILY !!! Want to see more of her. Finally getting to like Penny's short hair. Took a while!

We have watched every episode. The new season seems to be not as funny, that the show is searching for funny. Penny is not as cute and charming with short hair. I'm worried this will be it for the show.

When will Sheldon's "genius" pay off? Everyone else has had accomplishments and he would not have the article without Leonard's insight. Also- start connecting episodes. Sheldon was told Amy was the key to his life. Then she helps Kripke. Why didn't Sheldon remember that? Last - get rid of Emily. She is not a match for Raj. She's everything he doesn't want or need. The creepy character makes no sense.

LOVED it but was hoping for the funeral of Mrs. W. I thought the pet thing was dumb, but it tied into the Mars thing good.

I liked the episode. Amy comparing her relationship with Sheldon to a turtle was classic. Sheldon's video was roll on the floor funny. A pie in the face never gets old. The body painting storyline with Leonard and Penny was funny too. I am still on the fence about Raj and Emily

Just seen latest Big Bang....OMG Americans are so stupid... Ok you're not getting a turtle you getting a tortoise...

My whole family LOVES your show!!!! I have three daughters( Katie, Emily, & Abby) and the each love their own cast member. Katie loves Sheldon because i( her daddy) also was into physics and was the youngest to go to state science fair in Arkansas history), Emily loves Raj because he's very funny( really a tie between him and Lennard), and then Abby who is 8 loves Amy! She drew a picture of her but I don't know how to send it to you guys. Anyways, they would like me to ask if they could buy a pup. Photo of each hopefully signed or not they would be happy either way! We are trying to get to one of your shows but a have Lupus and walking and general moving sometimes is an issue. We are trying for this summer or next Anyways, great show and we love ALL of you the cast, writers, directors..... Y'all are in our hearts!
