  1. I don’t think we should assume that this means Johnny is limiting his time in or leaving Hollywood, there are several working actors/Producers that work in Hollywood and don’t call the area home. I think the only thing we can assume is that the home he is selling is not needed by him anymore and he doesn’t want to mess with it anymore, so he is selling. Actually, based on the article, the home was now just an expensive rental property to him and not his home.

  2. While the dates (the tribute taping with Johnny, the announcement of Hirsch's appearance, and the writing and taping of TBBT) all match, as to how Hirsch became Leonard's father , what the actual reason for the wedding redo is unclear. I'm aware of several possible reasons for the redo (some of them overlapping), but all of them have been either hinted at or based on innuendo. There hasn't been and official reason for having the redo. Perhaps that will be one of the things we'll find out when the book is published in a couple of months.

  3. And yet a few episodes before this at Sheldon's birthday party, it was brought up that she wasn't at their wedding in Vegas and she was fine with it. Sometimes, it seems like all Lenny's relationship is treated like a joke. An example I can think of is when Penny is considering going to work for Zack. Leonard is talking about it with Raj and Sheldon. Raj says, "Oh she's going to leave you. Might as well get it over with". Lines like that, I don't find funny at all.

  4. It looks like Johnny’s either not coming back to LA, or he’ll be looking for a new place.

  5. I'm glad you liked it. As a Lenny I didn't. The writers gave them the almost perfect wedding, while both Lenny weddings had it be about Sheldon. He forced his way into the second and made it impossible for the gang to watch the first one due to him acting like a petulant child. He also caused problems with Howard and Bernadette's wedding while trying to insert Klingon in his speech when Bernadette said no Klingon. But, to some it was funny because it's baby Sheldon. Well, that is enough ranting for now.

  6. Bob N. didn't play the same character all those years. Yes his character's name was Bob Newhart. But, he was a psychologist (sp) in one show and an innkeeper in another show. The innkeeper show had three guys playing brothers. They would always introduce themselves by saying, "Hi, name is Larry and this is my brother Darryl and this is my other brother Darryl". Larry would introduce them that way even if everyone there knew them. It was hilarious.

  7. Let's hope he's not too tired of portrayal of Leonard. He may have to play him in a reunion show.😂

  8. I've never seen or heard of any of those interviews. It's possible that he was just wanting some advice. I hope he hasn't lost his passion for acting.

  10. I seriously think that Sheldon does not want anymore "friends" as he insults everyone he comes in contact with. As for his current friends he only uses them as his "minions" to cater to his whims. I just wonder in the finale if he truly realized how much his friends actually do for him.

  11. And yet it seems to me that on YS they're less willing to let him get away with his BS ( except maybe his mom) than his friends on TBBT. I've only watched seasons1-3 of YS so maybe that changes in the later seasons, i dunno. Also i find him more empathic as a child.

  12. You do ask some interesting questions. I don't want to start my "I hate the writers " rant again. The writers wrote nicely for Shamy. For Lenny, not so much. Even after they were married, they had more arguments than the other two couples combined. Penny's snarky comments towards Leonard and her always taking Sheldon's side in the arguments between "Her Husband" and his supposedly best friend. I don't get it either. It sure wasn't comedy to me.

  13. Remember in season 10 when she blamed Leonard for making her live with Sheldon lol and i was like " hang on , that's not what happened at all, you're the one who caved when the big baby gave you his sad sack routine". The whole situation felt so forced anyway. We've seen Leonard eat crunchy spaghetti , ramen noodles at Penny's , he even cooked for her , he had dinner at Raj's place , he wasn't stuggling with the food schedule then and suddenly he can't pick what to have for dinner?? I remember thinking when watching the episode that maybe we'll get some comedy with the three of them living together, well i didn't laugh much. Who laughed at the scene when Penny was in the shower with Sheldon standing there and she had to yell Leonard's name to get the weirdo out of here ?? even more infuriating for me is that it took only one season for the Shamy to live together and to get engaged when they dragged everything for Lenny ugh

  14. Penny has herself to blame about the living arrangements. Leonard was ready to move across the hall. She's the one who decided that they would take it slow for Sheldon's sake.

  16. From Deadline Hollywood Kaley Cuoco To Star In ‘Based On A True Story’ Peacock Comedic Thriller Series Kaley Cuoco, a two-time Emmy nominee for The Flight Attendant, has been tapped for a lead in Peacock’s dark comedic thriller Based On a True Story, from Emmy-nominated The Boys executive producer Craig Rosenberg, Ozark star/executive producer Jason Bateman and his Aggregate Films and UCP. I hear Cuoco has a two-season deal for Based On a True Story. There has been no Season 3 pickup for The Flight Attendant yet as creator Steve Yockey is bouncing around potential ideas but it appears likely, and Cuoco would return if the right premise comes along. Written by Rosenberg Inspired by a bizarre true event, Based On a True Story is about a realtor, a plumber and a former tennis star whose lives unexpectedly collide, exposing America’s obsession with true crime, murder and the slow close toilet seat. Cuoco will play a married woman named Ava Bartlett. All other details are being kept under wraps; I hear Ava is the realtor character. Rosenberg, who will serve as showrunner, executive produces alongside Bateman and Michael Costigan for Aggregate Films. Roxie Rodriguez serves as co-executive producer for Aggregate Films. The series is produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group. The Big Bang Theory alumna Cuoco recently received a second consecutive Emmy nomination for her performance in The Flight Attendant in the category Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. She is under an overall deal at Warner Bros. TV, which is exclusive for producing and non-exclusive for acting. Cuoco is currently shooting action-thriller feature Role Play for director Thomas Vincent, in which sh stars opposite David Oyelowo. She is repped by SDB Partners, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Hansen Jacobson Teller

  18. I'm going to disagree with this a bit. The writers, when they chose to, could write Lenny this way(there are examples in seasons 1-5 and near the end of season six, say "Chew Toy" and later). But from some bit and pieces I've been able to put together, there were reasons they shied away from writing them that way for a period (season seven through the middle of season 11) although I prefer not to say why, because I don't have all the information to be sure of the reason. One example from season 12, that a lot of people don't like, Penny drops the bomb that she didn't want kids. And yes Leonard was angry and walked out. But, they did later talk about it calmly and lovingly and decided they were then good with it. And, even when Leonard wanted to donate sperm to Zack, they had different opinions, but did come together to talk about it.

  19. I think this is true Even though Penny had her snarky moments toward Leonard deep down she truly loved him. Wasn't she the one that brought up marriage when they got engaged and wasn't she the one that suggested they go to Las Vegas to get married? It just seems to me that because of her "street savvy and smarts" it was more adaptable for her to bust on Leonard and he really didn't seem to mind as long as she woke up next to him in the morning. And as I have mentioned in a previous post the writers did not know how to write for P&L as a loving mature married couple.

  21. I believe that there was no actual plan for a wedding redo but then they got the opportunity to have Judd Hirsh on the show to play Leonard's dad and they came up with the idea of another wedding ceremony ( @Tensorwill know more than I do ). So when the lovely Beverly thanked Lenny for not inviting her at the Vegas wedding, she meant it but they had to "tweak" the character a bit to justify the wedding redo so you have a Beverly who felt insulted for not being invited ( and a Beverly who actually cares about her son's happiness!! ) Well, that's Raj for you. Only a few episodes before he said he was jealous of Lenny and Howardette and their happy relationships.... I don't pay attention to what he says because he's the one who's unable to be in a healthy relationship , he's more background noise than anything as far as i'm concerned. Also i believe the three major relationships were treated as some big joke at one point or another. Look at Howardette for instance. They had their sweet moments but for a very long time their dynamics were awful , he was a man-child and she was a harpish shrew. It was implied that Penny ruined Bernie's life by setting her up with Howard.... The Shamy were a big joke to everybody .... I don't know if Lenny were treated any worse than the other two couples honestly. Maybe we notice more the jokes that were done at Lenny's expense because we care more about those two. I don't know. The one thing that bothers me really is that the writers took the time to deepen the emotional connection between H/B and S/A. They never did with Lenny that's why we were stuck with the same jokes with them.

  22. All three of his so-called friends made stupid remarks like that. None of them were funny. That's one of the reasons I don't think of them being friends. They were more like acquaintances than friends. Raj, Howard and Sheldon mocked and teased more than being supportive. They enjoyed mocking and teasing, but got upset when they were mocked or teased. Ranting over, for now.

  26. Totally agree Why do the writers always upstage P&L. In their bliss of an engagement announcement they get pushed aside for Raj's sex life.......really WTH? Then like you mention in their first wedding Sheldon is his overbearing obnoxious self and makes everyone miss the ceremony. In P&L redo wedding Sheldon becomes an even bigger a.....hole and is more obnoxious and insulting the whole episode, even to his own mother. And in the final episodes they brush aside P&L baby announcement with Shamy quest for the Nobel prize. Such blatant disregard for TBBT core couple. End of rant

  27. The could have been the same, as both characters were very similar. In both series, his characters were the calm in the midst of chaos. Judd Hirsch was the same in Taxi, as was Ted Danson in Cheers. Leonard played the same role in TBBT.

  29. Thank you for your comment. You have added to my optimism in anticipation of news about Johnny's work. I remember that Johnny said in an interview that he wanted to take a break, so I didn't expect news from him in 2020. He was busy with his son, and the year was difficult for everyone. Starting in 2021, I began to worry about the lack of news, and when at the end of 2021 there were releases about two of his new projects, there was no limit to my happiness. But enough time has passed and silence again.

  30. Don't think he lost his passion for acting just maybe wants to use his talent to write and produce. Would be very surprised if he gave up acting all together.

  31. Nah, I don't think you were overly negative at all. Just your opinions and I agree with you on hoping he hasn't lost that passion and desire to continue acting. He is a great actor and it would be a shame if he gave it up. With that being said, he does enjoy being a dad and spending a lot of time with his son.

  34. Let me guess, it's the whole "Leonard is terrible to Penny because he made fun of her believing in astrology" thing, isn't it? There is so much that he could be critical of her on, and isn't, such as loose morals, poor money management, excessive drinking, stealing services (wifi), stealing from Good Will, being a slob, and mooching meals. Leonard doesn't criticize her for any of those things. But he has problems believing that anyone is serious about astrology and he is a bad person. One episode in how many years? Maybe she should just run to Sheldon's arms, he never criticizes her for anything. (Imagine me holding up a sarcasm sign at this point).

  35. Seems like the media is obsessed with the picture of Kaley in the black lace dress that she wore months ago. Though she looks very beautiful in the dress, but can't they come up with something new. Appears all is quiet on her relationship with Tom, at least in the news.

  38. Thanks Julia. I'm glad he's not given up on acting. I can imagine that playing the same character for more than 10 years can be tiring. It'd make sense then he would ask Bob N, who I believe played the same character for many years too, some advice. ( I'm not famiiar at all with BOb N's work) . Maybe Jim did Johnny a favour by calling it quits!

  42. Man, Johnny looks good ❤️ Also, on another BBT forum a member there mentionned there were several interviews during the few last seasons of TBBT where Johnny was saying that he asked Bob Newhart how to keep passionate about acting for so long. I can't find said interviews but were you guys aware of that? I don't know if he was fed up with the Leonard character or maybe he lost his passion for acting. I hope not.

  46. Yes I recall all that and she was excellent in this role. Also, if I further recall this film was shot in Alburquerque, NM and when she auditioned for the part the producer did not even know who she was. So she completely won this part. A total withdrawl from her Penny character.

  47. She did have a son, but it was hardly a family. Her grandmother had custody due to her conviction (I was wrong here also, they don't say why, just that she was convicted, spent some time in jail, and is part of a work crew for probation). She had to live at her grandmother's house to see the kid, however, she spent more time at her boyfriend's (which was a small motorhome) drinking and smoking (Kaley smokes a lot in this film). In the middle of the film, she takes Dylan (the main character) to her grandmother's house to see the kid. But, her and Dylan spend all the time talking, while Ember (Cody Horn's character) plays with the kid. There's a scene where she leaves her grandmother's house to go to her boyfriend's motorhome for the night. There is a scene at the end (probably the one you're thinking of) where she plays with the kid for 15-20 seconds. This is after a scene where she says goodbye to her boyfriend, gets rid of her makeup (the character is heavily made up in the film) like she is making a change to be a better mother and person. So, it's hard to call this a family and I can understand why she would call Role Play her first film family. Bohdi was a real gritty performance for her. She has a real good dramatic scene when Dylan is texting her, wanting to get back together (they were boyfriend-girlfriend in high school). She knows she hurt him (she slept with his best friend, Bohdi) and is aware they are not good for each other, but she is still really upset she is turning him away.

  50. I work on being tolerant of Sheldon because, let's face it, he's the most popular character in the show and a big reason for the show's popularity and success. Hating him is like biting the hand that feeds you. I also tolerate him because Leonard and Penny love him while he drives them crazy. And sometimes he's really funny. I was the most furious with him this season about his stupid" Amy and I are the best couple in the group" (I know he really meant world) and Penny and Leonard are the worst, the scum of the earth of coupledom. Leonard's his best friend for God's sake. Sheldon was a witness to the "courtship" from its start. If anyone knows how much Leonard loves Penny, it's Sheldon. And Penny is his friend too and he even likes her. So, whatever his undiagnosed issues are, I can't believe that he is still clueless and insensitive enough to be arrogant and boastful about his superior relationship to Leonard and Penny while diminishing theirs to a laughing stock status. He had to know that this would be upsetting and hurtful to them right on the heels of their engagement. But his arrogance trumped his ability to care for another person over trumpeting his own (perceived) superiority. I found it to be one of Sheldon's most hateful moments. In direct contrast, I found Sheldon endearing and funny when he and Leonard went shopping with the girls. He was tolerant of all three and showed a soft, caring side and a willingness to compromise but showed enough jerkness to be believable. And he was still funny.I liked him when Leonard had his surgery. He was crazy and neurotic because he was so worried about his Buddy. And Leonard could understand how worried Sheldon was and put up with his badgering. So he can be very funny without being a total jerk, but some seem to enjoy the total jerkness and the real meanness the most. To each his own. So, Sheldon can be a jerk. And he can also be a good friend and boyfriend sometimes and his relationship struggles will likely continue to amuse, touch and infuriate me til the end.
