    Much as I like the show, this might be stretching it unless they have some more surprises in store. Penny and Leonard getting married will do for a season or two (maybe a baby Wolowitz family), but with Sheldon dealing with the impending marriage, it might start to go downhill.

    I am happy that “The Big Bang Theory” has been given another three seasons, I hope it gets a 12th season!

    Rhoda, “Fringe” was on FOX not CBS. “The Big Bang Theory” is in syndication and a lot of FOX stations do air the syndicated repeats but it still airs new episodes on CBS.

    No-brainer. But those kids are getting long in the tooth. How long can they last? Get the series on Hulu please.

  5. Rhoda says

    Well, you all did something good for a change. I would be happier if you would bring ‘Fringe’ back. I will never let up on that.
