This isn’t quite like ‘How I Met Your Mother’ where Ted still has yet to tell us how, in fact, they met. Yet CBS’s hit comedy series is five seasons deep, and may be on the verge of introducing Bernadette’s father as a full-fledged character. Howard must tell everyone, through standard laugh-track flair, that a shuttle launch has changed his wedding plans.
There is a plan to introduce Bernadette’s mother in a later episode, likely airing mid-season 6. With a full family reunion, we can only be confused and intrigued by what sort of weird dynamics this introduces to the characters.
The Big Bang Theory has officially been renewed for three additional seasons, putting it on the air until at least 2014.
