The clips/preview were fun, although for the money, some unseen footage/blooper reel would have been nicer. I loved that the panel was the complete cast and producers/writers. It allowed for a lot of perspective and laughs. It seemed like they cut off answers to some questions so there really wasn't an answer. They included a nice variety of questions from theaters, but the QA in the live audience wasted a time as they waited for people to take mics around and didn't screen questions before people wasted time with requests for signatures and photos. If the people with mics picked the questions, not the moderator, they could have had people lined up ready to go to just fire them off one right after another. I did think the main writer handled the Asperger's question very well. Highly gifted individuals often have some similar characteristics to those on the spectrum but no diagnosis. The writer did a great job showign respect to all individuals despite the woman's rather rude question.

Considering this is my favorite show on the air I am probably biased but it was fabulous.
I don't think the moderator did a good job (it was more about her than about the questions from the audience) but it was still really awesome.
I love watching the cast interact with each other and Melissa Rauch is really amazing - she is nothing like Bernadette in real life.
Really fabulous event. I would probably consider going to events that aren't my favorite show.

I loved seeing my favorite TV cast and laughed a lot. Love the idea of Paley Fest. However, I felt ripped off knowing I'd paid money to see the show in a theater, and other people could see it for free on Hulu Plus! Is that true? I thought the theater was the only venue. Also, in a big city of 6 million people, only ten people showed up at the only theater offering this show. Very disappointing. Maybe everyone else was watching it for free! Would have liked more than just one cast member to answer some of the great questions for the whole cast.
Big Bang rocks. Paley Fest, so-so.

The live show was super fun and entertaining. It was great to see the entire cast, as well as the writers and producers, in their real life selves. Please do this again!

I was more interested in seeing and hearing from the characters, however, Pauley Perret, whom I really like, was an aweful host. She just talked and talked and talked and wasted so much time that we really didn't get probably more than 45 minutes tops hearing the cast and writers speak. She was always interupting everyone speak. She seemed more like an awed fan, than the actual host of the show.
While it was great to see the cast live, I would have been just as happy to see them on you tube later on.
Probably will not go back to another Paley Fest
