The smartest thing that the people behind the wildly popular sitcom, "The Big Bang Theory" could have done was added more women to the dynamic of the show (and given Kunal Nayyar, who plays Raj, more screen time, which I've also noticed they've been working on.) As much mad love I have for Kaley Cuoco, not only as the great presence she is as Penny on the show but from all of the hilarious and non-stuckupish (shut up, that's a word) interviews she's given on different talk shows, I fell instantly in love with Melissa Rauch when she was originally introduced as a bit player love interest for one of the geeks. It's Bernadette who is the voice of reason. The voice who can best mock Howard's mom's. It's Bernadette who can't lie or deceive or forget to NOT mention the flesh-eating contagions that got loose during her work studies. And it's Bernadette who looks best in that Cheesecake Factory uniform. (Sorry, Kaley.) In a world where there's a limited number of spaces for the big names, it's the character actors and actresses who provide some of the most memorable laughs. Melissa is absolutely no exception.
