    The actress who plays Penny has been in two funny commercial series recently, one with Shatner for the travel stuff (where she's his daughter sent to live with the monks) and one for a car (she's the genie for the car)--maybe they could play off those for Penny....

    I loved it!! Love BN and found the show hysterical.

    Penny is the dumb blonde with the heart of gold, who comes out with some genius stuff, I love the character as she is. don't change her.

    Excellent show last night. Bob Newhart was on the money as always. As much as I don't want to see Howard and Bernadette go the baby route, it was pretty funny seeing them "babysitting" the dog.

    I don't want them to change her, but I do want them to further her career a little

    I would still like to know how Penny can afford a 1 bedroom apt and only work at the Cheese factory?

    I think that is a question on almost all sitcoms and other shows, how do they afford it?

    I figure that will come at the series finale - she'll do a Joey (Friends) and move away to Hollywood for a gig.

    Although it would be nice if they acknowledged her aspirations more, talking about going on auditions, and even having an episode based on that. She did the douche commercial - maybe next she can do a condom or tampax one.

    I know, right? After all, "Jack" needed both "Chrissy" and "Janet" to help with expenses and that was 25 years ago!!!

    I always wondered how they afforded their apartments in Friends. Wasn't Joey always out of work?? I guess you just have to suspend your disbelief for a half hour.

    I have no problem at all suspending disbelief for a good story. Most good fiction requires it. Maybe Penny's family helps her financially. What I'd find harder to believe if I think about it is that whatever they are paying in rent, nobody has filed a complaint and/or a lawsuit about the broken elevator in how many years? NYC has a strong Housing Authority.
