I get the feeling that it will take a while for Raj's parents to divorce. The writers will get a lot out of Raj manipulating them. I'd like to see more of his siblings (e. g. not just Priya) and see some of the dynamic there.

I think with the arrival of Howard's half-brother, then their father can't be far behind. I do miss Debbie. If Carol Ann Susi had lived, I bet the writers would have pushed for more of a relationship between her and Stuart.

I'm not so sure that explaining Beverly's parenting style was necessary, but maybe the show runners got letters from fans? That's just speculation on my part; I don't know anything about it. But note that fans can often assume all sorts of things, and writers for a popular show can subtly use their voices to teach or assure the public. Consider that the show itself is one large advertisement for careers in the sciences and engineering.

I like how Mary has been developed; she's a lot less of just a Bible thumper and gives as good as she gets. I thought she stood up to Beverly rather convincingly.

I think the Rostenkowski's are the most 'normal' although Mike is really whipped. One thing - it's hard for me, particularly when it comes to Mary and Beverly, see anyone else in those roles. Laurie Metcalf and Christine Baranski really do bang-up jobs. Love Raj's parents, too (neither of them are really Indian, FYI). Carol Ann Susi, of course, was off the charts. But I do think other people could have played the Rostenkowski's.

I'd like to see Wyatt again. Hell, I'd like to see him hit on Beverly.

Bernie's parents strike me as the *closest* to normal; Howard's mom was the most fun, and Leonard's mom is a major pain in the butt.

Well, after seeing Sheldon and Leonard's mothers again, here's a new poll - who is the most normal (define normal) of all of the parents we've seen on the show. Keep in mind, we haven't seen Amy's parents yet (she only mentions her mother at times but has never mentioned her father), Sheldon's father is dead, and we've never seen Leonard or Howard's fathers. We've never seen Stuart's family but I would not call him a main character. Let's confine the poll to just the main characters' parents.

1 - Bernadette's father, Mike Rostenkowski
2 - Bernadette's mother (first name unknown) Rostenkowski
3 - Howard's mother, Debbie Wolowitz (RIP)
4 - Leonard's mother, Dr. Beverly Hofstadter
5 - Penny's father, Wyatt (last name unknown)
6 - Raj's father (first name unknown) Koothrapalli
7 - Raj's mother (first name unknown) Koothrapalli
8 - Sheldon's mother, Mary Cooper

So, who's the most normal? Who's the wackiest? The Rostenkowski's seem to be the only ones who stayed married. But does that make them at all 'normal'?
