On a side note, that bed is ridiculously small!! There was a high angle at one point of Shamy during the heartfelt scene and they could barely fit that bed together, LOL! Not that I want them to change it, it's the right size for snuggling all the time!

Agree! And no Sheldon initiating snuggling so far! Come on, writers! You know we want this! *nods*

Btw, Sheldon in tag scene is sat on right side of the sofa. So not Sheldon's spot in that sofa? I dont know what to think, lol! I wanted him to have a spot there too, hehe!

Kind of mixed feelings for today episode; I liked very much Amy in it, she was supportive of Sheldon, but didn't put up with his nonsense (he had some WTF moments, but I come to this later...). I liked her reaction to Lenny's snarks in the stairwell scene, she was on Sheldon's side and waited for them to be alone to ask him about his real feelings to Raj moving in, since she already knew Sheldon didn't like it at all. Also, her remembering Sheldon's room with fondness was moving, she perfectly understood Sheldon's reaction to the whole situation and in a way she shared that feeling. I laughed so hard to the joke about the fake snakes Sheldon got her as an anniversary present. That was funny, and also Sheldon thought it was, LOL! She also realized Sheldon was being insensitive towards Raj in 4A living room and put an end to the whole thing taking him home. The bedroom scene is my favourite part of the episode; after Beverly said those mean things about everybody, she was calmly sleeping, as all that psychology gibber-gabber meant nothing to her, and was very understanding with Sheldon's doubts. She perfectly understood that his love for preparedness and the necessity for a plan B in every situation has nothing to do with her personally, it's just what he needs to function in life. I wished she would have appreciated more the fact she is the "dessert" in the case of an apocalypse, but the way Mayim delivered the line was so funny! Finally, probably the Batman statue is my favourite thing ever, please let it stay!

What I didn't like was that I'm sensing there is too much meanness in the show lately. Lenny were mean to Sheldon for no reason (the drugs joke were just unfunny), Sheldon was mean to Raj (I know not on purpose and he also got him a nice present, but the guy knows better at this point...), Beverly was her usual self and judged everybody's relationship without actually knowing them, Howard was mean to Raj...I don't know, I feel the need of a nice group episode where the gang focuses on what brings them together rather than on what set them apart.

Plus, I see now why Mayim captioned her reminder of the episode as "Everybody has commitment issues", that was Beverly's opinion on Amy as well, just because she reacted to her diagnose on Sheldon...Sorry Mayim, I take all back!

Spot on!  My feelings exactly on the episode.

Too much meanness for me in this one, one of the rare times when they get the humor wrong and go too far sometimes creating drama for drama sake. It reminded me a little of Viewing Party Combustion and you all know how I feel about that one.

Onwards and upwards.

I see what you are saying. However, I think 10.18 was better than The Viewing Party Combustion, which was really one of the worst last season, mostly because there was actually no purpose whatsoever in that episode. Here at least we have Raj moving in with Lenny, which is a development in the ongoing plot, not that I like Raj and Lenny living together, mind you, it's just that I see it as a part of a bigger scheme and not as just a one-shot episode where people scream at each other for no reason. Plus, at least we got Shamy sorting out their feelings and talking about what troubles them. In 9.21 we got Amy saying she was annoyed that Penny took Sheldon's side, but there was no follow up to that. So, this episode, IMO, was built up better than VPC, but I agree with you that the meanness should be definitely turned down.

I said a little, it's no way as bad as that episode. Like you said there was more reasons for them acting that way in this one and it was built up, but mean is still mean in my eyes. Just calling it how I see it, I simply didn't enjoy it. Leonard especially really took the shine off this episode for me.

On my day off, I decided to make this.
I hope I've included everyone. If I didn't, forgive me, but I saved the file, LOL... I could still add you.
I think this encapsulates us. We're crazy and fun and sometimes we're weird, but we're always together (even when we're fighting!).
I just love you guys... out of all the corners of the Internet, I stumbled onto this one and met some incredible people. Tomorrow marks 2 years of me in this thread, and I just love it here.
BTW, FYI - I'm never leaving this place!

Hey everyone!!

I'm checking in a little late today for the latest ep, sorry about that. Anyway, thoughts about the episode:

I'm loving all the Shamy bed scenes - gosh, they're so adorable! I was amused to see them mirroring Howardette once again* - both all snuggled into bed, he's on the internet, she is putting on some hand lotion. lol (*the other recent example was the guys smooth talking their women for CC)

I still don't get why people are mad at Sheldon. Yes, he was upset about his room but he didn't throw a temper tantrum or was otherwise an ass and yet people behave as if he were...!? I don't know how much of that is a misfired joke - and how much is to emphasise how much Sheldon changed and that his friends didn't get the memo??? Weird.

I really like how instead of throwing a tantrum Sheldon is holding those feelings back in front of his friends and instead works through them with Amy's and Beverly's help. I thought it was rather wonderful to see him reacting this mature. And yes, Beverly's advice was a bit hit and miss. Yes, his old room was an "escape hatch" but not for the reason she thought it would be. I love how Shamy talk through this (again in bed! <3) with Amy not being rattled at all by Beverly's nonsense because she knows Sheldon much better. And it's ending on a really adorable note with the "Because I love you...". Awwwww!

I also loved the little moment remembering the ILY2. Though Amy saying that his room holds a lot of memories for her, too, makes me wonder what else they did in there that we haven't seen cause right now I can maybe point to the Love Spell talk as a big moment for them but not much else...?

Sheldon "surprise" for the anniversary cracked me up! That wish was a rookie mistake, Amy! LOL

Also the tag was cute! Though I won't be sad to see Batman go.

All in all a cute little episode for our couple. As I've said before: I really appreciate this step looking at the bigger picture cause now there's really no going back. Shamy are here to stay all shacked up and happy. <3

P.s: @Riley7

Yeah, I share (bold)  same thought. It might be just that Love Spell moment as a big for Amy in his bedroom as they for what we know they had not been there together many times , as Sheldon for the first time, even only through a game of words and a dice spoke openly about intimacy with her. Other thing that came up to my mind as I heard Amy last night about these memories were their skype talks. We know Sheldon had a few on 4A living room and others as he was on his bed. I would say they had very interesting talks as he was on his pajamas and Amy on hers, lol! A girl doesn't  forget about that! :wink:

Anyone think this was a bit tied to the Emotion Detection episode earlier in the season, you know the whole discussion in that episode about people hiding what they are feeling or want to say and Sheldon not understanding why people do it? He clearly tried to do that in this episode from what I saw but still got shit for doing it. He was a bit upset about the room, but he tried to not make a fuss about it.

I mean it's pretty normal that people think one thing, like being upset deep down with something but trying to put a bit of a front on. Sometimes succeeding and eventually getting over that issue, other times the facade shatters fairly quickly and true feelings are let out.

If that makes any sense...

Yeah, I thought it was a mix of that and his efforts to be more empathic towards his friend's situation. As I keep saying: I love how these lessons Sheldon learned since the breakup are actually sticking and we see him consistently grow and mature. It's really lovely! <3

Ok, guy, something weird might be happening in the episode taped this week, it's in Briana Kuoco's (Kaley's sister) IG stories, I don't know how to show you the link. Anyway she posted some videos about dance rehearsals (country music, people with cowboys hats, stuff like that) in a set that looked like a bar and at some point Jim/Sheldon (I can't tell since he is not in costume) enters the room, sits at a table and scream something like a cowboy. It might be a rehearsal for a TBBT episode,  Briana has already choreographed for a Chuck Lorre's show...so, maybe that's the case this week and there will be a dance piece in the show involving Sheldon, I guess a nightmare, because it's not something quite usual for him, LOL!

I'm looking forward to the costumes we may get. Sheldon as a cowboy:icon_redface:, (I'm from Texas, so I love me a sexy cowboy) and not to mention that time period has some gorgeous and conservative looks for Mayim/Amy. It sounds weird, but fun!

I'm really not liking season ten so far. I love the interactions between Sheldon and Amy, of course, but it seems as though the writers have changed the entire premise of the show.

For nine seasons, all of Sheldon's friends tolerated his behaviour because they understood that his brain works differently than most people's do. Nowadays, it's like they can't stand him. He's working on being better in social interactions, but I guess they expect him to already be an expert In That area? There is no more understanding at all from anyone except Amy.

I also hated the part where they left to eat their dinner in 4b instead of hanging out with their friends. It just didn't feel right. They've always eaten dinner together as a group...

I'm just a little sad with how the show is going. I guess I'm like Sheldon and I can't handle change. Him moving to 4b was as much as I could handle.

Personally there are two differences for me:
1. The tone is different. How many times did you see comments like that in the past but then got a cheeky grin or a sarcastic smile on their face when they said something like that? Last night in the most recent example those comments going up the stairs had none of that, therefore to me it felt less snarky, taking the piss banter and more mean or nasty. Did anyone notice any sarcasm or cheeky playfulness in Leonard last night in that scene? Because I sure fucking didn't.
2. Sheldon is more aware of it clearly. I can think of many times where he barely showed a flicker of a reaction to those snarky comments, these days you can actually see annoyance or anger in him because I believe he more aware. I think they are lucky he is so meek, because a lot of people wouldn't stand for it.
I have watched every episode more than once so I know none of them are angels, they all enjoy ribbing each other and being snarky. But it felt a lot more playful back then (with the occasional time when it clearly wasn't), recently and this is just my opinion it feels way way different. I think it's a writing change for sure, and writers get rid of those fucking recurring drugging/medication jokes.

Yup this. All of this.
