  1. Last I checked this thread simply posited a question of whether or not Sheldon/Penny are going to be romantically involved. Which implies that it is a topic open for discussion both pro and con. I don't see any rule that only pro-Shenny people are allowed to voice their opinions on the matter when it comes to this thread. With all due respect Annie, I don't think people are being scared away. I just think you and Doug are probably the only two registered members of this forum who are strong advocates for Shenny who post in this thread on a regular basis. If you really want a thread tha

  2. I have a mental image of you stomping your feet and screaming, "Mommy, they're being mean nasty icky poopy-heads, make them stop, waaaah!" Let me clue you in to three unimpeachable facts: (1) you don't call the shots on what is discussed in this thread (if you want such complete control, start a blog); (2) people are going to disagree with you; and (3) those people have just as much of a right to post their opinions as you do. Crying to the moderators because people are posting things you don't like is the act of a child, and reflects poorly on you.

  3. no, what is stupid is that, instead of posting about Shenny, most Shenny's start posting about how awful Leonard/Penny and how awful Sheldon/Amy are and betting on when they're gonna break up, instead of discussing the why's on the wish for Shenny to happen. And when it is brought up, when posters post their reasons why it would not work, Shenny shippers start arguing again on how awful Leonard/Penny are and how awful Sheldon/Amy are, and so, the vicious circle starts again-. The truth is, no one is gonna convince the other side. IMO this thread should be given a rest. There are no new a

  4. What's funny is that TBBT has never shown Penny or Sheldon wanting to be a couple. Sheldon and Penny have shown on many occasions that they don't want, don't have any desire nor do they ever think about being a couple. Both Sheldon and Penny would think the idea of them getting together as absurd. That's the facts. L/P for the win.

  6. So when should the character development ideally happen? Much earlier than season 6? Later? Never? I don't particularly want the show to be dragged on to its bitter end ( > 10 seasons or something) myself. Better to wind up while they're still at the top of their game. That being said, it's pretty clear from every objective measure that this show is at the top of its game right now.. or rather, at the top of everyone's game, seeing that it's beating roughly everything else on television in terms of popularity. Obviously it's going to start going downhill at some point, but I don't thin

  7. Oh no, you've written to the Admin, I guess I will have to agree with you now. Start a thread for Sheldon and Penny lovers only. Both of you can go there and post to your hearts content without worry of anyone posting how ludicrous the whole concept is.

  9. You have to admit it is fascintating to what lenghts some of the posters will go to....Amy talked to someone else, Sheldon and Amy are going to break up. Someone else likes Leonard, he's going to dump Penny and hook up with the new person. Penny talked to Sheldon, they are going to be a couple. Fascinating.

  10. I don't think Penny is the most important character at all. We even had episodes without her and nobody even noticed. She is essential, is true, but, to me, Leonard's character is the whole center of The Big Bang Theory's world. Without Leonard, Penny would never have met the guys, without Leonard, Sheldon wouldn't have even met the other guys either, Sheldon would have never even have talked to Penny ever., Leonard is the glue that keeps them all together. He is the bridge and the foundation. Penny, Sheldon, etc are all orbiting around him.

  11. i found this: Question: Do you realize that you haven’t mentioned The Big Bang Theory in Ask Ausiello since August? Is it because of residual anger over Jim Parsons getting flipping robbed at the Emmys? Any scoop on our scientists? â€â€Bethany Ausiello: If I had an assistant I would totally make him/her/it fact-check the hell out of that August accusation. That can’t be right. Anyway, the hitcom’s Dec. 7 episode will be chock full of what Kaley Cuoco affectionately refers to as “Shenny moments.†In the episode, Penny asks Sheldon to teach her “a lit

  13. Really? Can you point to where Penny accepted anything of monetary value from Raj, after the fact? Can you point out exactly where the whore of Omaha regretted what had happened with Howard, before meeting his mother? Yeah, cause she was single when she had her intent, but Leonard wasn't single when he intended to have sex with Alice. He didn't, but you've been on an intent kick, so let's bring in Leonard's intent. I notice you completely give Leonard a pass on his behavior, but not Penny. Me, I'm willing to give them both a pass and understand they BOTH have issues t

  14. You have never seen AD? It had some of the tightest writing I have ever seen. Every character was genius and well-played. That show had practically no filler moments. It may have been one of the funniest shows to ever be on TV. The problem with it was it was too adult for network TV. A lot of suggestive language and, of course, the way George taught his kids lessons... lol. "And this is why you always leave a note." You could never guess what came right before that, that made that line so freaking hilarious. There has been such a demand for it Netflix has produced a new season

  15. I've never played D&D ... yet,!! but I don't like it when they get stuff wrong that I know about, so I get what you are saying. This show must be making staggering amounts of money these days, so you'd think they could afford proper research to get these things right. They used to pay more attention but I guess the others are right, the story comes first. There are a lot of other things we have to take at face value as well though. The fact the guys would be earning a lot of money and not need to share an apartment, with the professions they are in. And that Penny would not be able to affo

  16. You are right about that and personally I think the original show was set up like that, to require little character development. It was Leonard and Penny's relationship that needed development. Sheldon's popularity is his undoing, they just couldn't leave him alone.

  17. Congrats to the show, Johnny and Kaley! I love Jim and would like to see him deservedly win every award he can get, but it's also nice to see the other cast members felicitated, on occasion. They do a great job too, after all Johnny and Kaley are the perfect 'straight men' for Jim to play off. I'm sure Jim is very happy for them winning.

  18. She really does?? this is still more difficult to understand.... Simon should earn same as Johnny and both less than Jim. Sorry to say this but in MY OPINION Kaley can be replaced for any other young blonde actress (there are lot of similar to her) but nobody can replace Jim, Simon, or Mayim. The rest all of them can be replaced for similar actors

  19. I am more puzzled as why Kaley earns the same as Jim & Johnny.- *sarcastic mode off* If you pay attention to the fist part of Season 1 (and specially both he aired and the unaired pilot), you would notice that Leonard's character was the central character. All the storylines feature him as the focus. Sheldon & Penny are featured but mostly, the storylines revolve around Leonard. The truth is, Johnny is the original male lead. Sheldon's popularity with the audience"upgraded" Jim to lead as well, but that wasnt the original intent, and that is an easy observation form the fist co

  20. Yes, probably you are right but I have to say: sometimes I use to watch a single episode from season 1, 2, 3 or 4 for about 2 or 3 times in the same day and I never become tired of it. Even I can repeat the sentences at the same time with the actors but still they make me laugh. But in season 6 it is boring to watch the same episodes if they are repeating them in the same week

  22. I contend that that P/Lrelationship is the core of the show. A classic set up of the hopeless romance, highly relatable and designed to be deserving of emotional investment. The relationship had a stroke in s3 and a heart attack at end S4. Each event was just plausible enough but TPTB have given themselves insurance- spread the risk- by adding more romantic pairings. They can give the show a different heart attack (peril) next time. No need to go third strike on L/P. And audiences would pay attention to that third strike. Once is accident, twice coincidence, third time is enemy action.TPTB do

  23. But they left it in the show. As corny as it is they could have done a dream sequence and taken it out. You may not see it this way but for some people it was like a betrayal. Of those a percentage will never watch the show again, others may watch but never get over it, and the rest, like myself, will never trust the show as much as before. It was also nice of them to bring it back up right before the winter break. It is great they have really learned their lesson, not.

  26. Ok. Let me refresh your memory. Here is her quote from the "Pilot": Penny: You want to know the most pathetic part? Even though I hate his lying, cheating guts, I still love him. Is that crazy? Kurt also kept her TV when she had to leave his apartment, "borrowed" $1800 from her to be bailed out of jail (almost having her evicted) and assaulted Leonard on three different occasions when he came to Penny's assistance. I don't think the writers were subtle about who was villain and who was victim.

  27. If Sheldon didn't want to change and grow in regard to his relationship with her, he wouldn't be doing it. In the episode with that Nowitski girl, he didn't want to be in a relationship with her and once he'd solved whatever he was working on and she asked to share credit, he kicked her out. End of story. If he felt that Amy was making him do things he didn't want to do he could just as easily break up with her. If she does get a kiss from his this season, it could very well be a kiss he initiates and that he does because he wants to. They've already done the she-kisses-him thing twice

  28. For me, in terms of the whole setting of the setting of the series, Leonard is, to quote Amy "the nucleus of the group". It's just like what Yanina said , that without him, Penny would not even be talking to Sheldon nor with any of the guys (especially her point about Penny... that I did not even notice she wasn't in that episode when I first saw it back in season 4 and sometimes I can't even remember what episode was she not included). Without Leonard, Sheldon would not even be friends with Howard and Raj. And didn't they offer originally the role of Sheldon to Johnny and then he declined bec

  30. You discuss how "it's going to happen" and others discuss how it's not going to happen. That's discussion. I agree that some people may be less civil than others, but it's become such an absurd issue with each passing episode, that's it's just ridiculous.

  32. I have a pink fake tree. Since it is summer in my hemisphere, no point pretending i is a real one. My bf hates it, because it's pink, but, whateaver. Here's a lousy pic of my tree, I need to take a better pic: I only used red/gold balls, and gold ribbons, because it goes with the pink. I don't like multi-colored decorated trees. The lights are pink and gold because of that too. I also have a big vase with pink sakura branches in bloom. I put white rice lights on it, so it serves as another kinda sort of christmas tree. I don't have pics of that one.

  33. For the second time, The Big Bang Theory featured the game of Dungeons & Dragons, a game that is very near and dear to the hearts of nerds and geeks everywhere and what can be considered a cornerstone of geek culture and for the second time, the writers and producers gave us a missed opportunity to introduce a wider audience to what is a wonderful and entertaining past time. I can only conclude that the reason for this is that the writers and producers of the show have little idea what exactly the game of Dungeons & Dragons is nor what it entails, as the activity depicted on last week’

  34. No, Raj's macbooks has stickers on them: the one he used when he skyped with his parents while his sister was there had alien stickers while the one he used back in The Wiggly Finger Catalyst had fake gunshot stickers and has a black keypad. Sheldon also has one, the one with the red cover on it and the one he used when Amy skyped with him in episode 6.07. Penny has a laptop but hers is Dell. Bernadette just got a small toshiba dotted with Pink flower stickers from Howard which was what she used during the weekend vortex. She has a bigger one, a Toshiba one dotted with flower stickers, which s

  35. I disagree. I think that people focus too much on the sexual aspect of their relationship where the real deal about it this year is that Sheldon is developing a lot from an emotional perspective within that relationship and, as a consequence, with others around him. Yes, the obliviousness is there just for laughs as a show cliche', but I don't think that's at the core of what Sheldon is going through right now. Amy yes, she's static at the moment. There's not a lot of growth on her part right now, but it might partially have to do with the fact that just as Sheldon is oblivious about her physi

  37. Well, he wasn't kicking and screaming in Fish Guts. He could have easily kept walking down that hallway, RelAg or no. He had already made his excuse and she had closed the door. He made the choice to take care of her and not just because of having signed the RelAg, but because, as he said of his own volition "you're my girlfriend and I care about your well-being". And again, when he was taking her temperature and trying to get her to take a TicTac placebo, she was eager for him to just leave her alone. He could have taken that opportunity to walk away and just let her rest. He was the

  38. It is a double-edged sword really. It is funny watching him learn life lessons but then if he never applied any of them it would be odd so some growth is expected. The original Sheldon would have never cared for Amy when she was sick. Her character was introduced so we could watch Sheldon in a different social situation but now they are forced to improve his social skills especially considering how sex-starved they have made her character. She is going to drag him kicking and screaming through the relationship hurdles.
