Leonard + Penny Posted May 25, 2012 Posted May 25, 2012 I can't imagine the show anymore without Amy or Bernadette, but that's just personal opinion. Same here. I think it' because I can't imagine Sheldon without Amy, or Howard without Bernadette, any more. They've become so important to thse characters' lives and personalities, at present. Thats why i think they've become core. I like Amy and Bernadette but I agree they shouldn't be in the opening shot. They're regulars, in that they're in every episode, but they're not the real core cast members. I see a distinct line drawn between 'the originals' and 'the newcomers'. Howard, Leonard, Penny, Sheldon and Raj have all had there own storylines but I don't think Amy and Bernadette have - and that's how it should always be. This isn't Friends! I would argue it differently. A non core cast member would be: Raj's parents Howard's mom Stuart Kripke I think what I mean too is this: if Amy or Bernadette were to leave the show, it would still be TBBT. Obviously, because it was TBBT before they were ever in it. But if Sheldon, Penny, Leonard, Howard or Raj left it would not. There is the core cast and the core core cast. I think a case could be made that the show could be okay without Penny. She was really just something good to look at more than anything.
