    I hope this will leave her free for an occasional guest shot as Sheldon’s mom on BBT. She’s so funny, and I love the relationship between Sheldon and his mom.

    I wish she and Christine Baranski were both in the same episode of BBT. Oh I can just picture the comedy.

    Interesting note is that Laurie Metcalf was the killer in Scream 2 and Scott Foley was the killer in Scream 3.
