In the early days of the hit CBS comedy series The Big Bang Theory, it was very rare for a female cast member to appear very often, other than the shows leading lady Penny (Kaley Cuoco). However, the show’s executive producers decided that the addition of a couple more women would spice the show up a bit, something that Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon in the show, totally agrees with.
Jim explained, "It's been a really smart evolution in how the Bernadette and Amy (Mayim Bialik) characters have grown into the cast. There's nothing odd about this addition of people. It's feels like it's extended what's already there as opposed to sticking on something." Meanwhile, Melissa Rauch, who portrays Bernadette in The Big Bang Theory, has compared the show to Sex and the City.
Melissa added, "I kind of call it the busted Sex and the City. The three of us, we're so different. We would have never hung out in high school together. Now that they're at an age where people don't judge you for who you hang out with, they can be friends together.” The Big Bang Theory returns to CBS next Thursday, January 12.
