    So glad BBT will be back. I like the diversity of the relationships, as well as the awkwardness of Sheldon and Amy’s relationship. Wonder how things would be if Leonard and Penny got married — how would Sheldon manage —— even if they lived across the hall. THANK YOU writers for your stories — giving the actors REAL comedy to perform for us many appreciative fans. You never seem to be “reaching” to create funny situations, and you never seem to take your audience for granted, or assume we’ll accept ridiculous trash just because we’ve enjoyed you this long.

      I love BBT! I think it would be great if penny and Leonard got married and I would also love it if at some point Amy and Sheldon actually get pysical lol. I’d be really upset if after ten seasons they never progress that far or don’t end up getting married. That would really suck. Get married shamy!! Lol. Also raj needs to actually be able to find someone and stay with her, evryone else has someone. When will it be raj’s turn?!

    75k and 125k is just too much and only causes too many commercials.. Frankly the “team” doesn’t deserve even a penny more. There are plenty of people who can replace them. And, that kind of money they’re demanding is plenty enough for almost anyone. (I wonder if Steven Hawking gets that kind of money).
