  1. I found what I'm gonna be wearin the day this episode airs

  2. What I think is making me particularly positive is that – imo – it's been a while since I've read a report that just makes me go: "Yes, *that* is Shamy!" and, if things keep going this way, I might come out of these first episodes feeling as satisfied as I haven't been in a long time. Even if nothing "important" happens during November sweeps, if I have to be completely honest. Of course, these are just the first three episodes out of a whole season and everything could happen between here and the season finale, but it makes me feel hopeful because it's been a while since I've read this Shamy and it's been a while since I've read this Amy. Meaning, I am positive that the writers know what they're doing (famous last words, TPTB? ). I think I've said this before, but more than the big events, I'm interested in seeing all the little things that are shown to us, the day to day interactions, etcetera. Plus, I'm actually kind of glad that things got resolved in a way that give you a hint or a glimpse of how things are working out (the whole Date Nights thing) without a turn for the drama. If anything, the lighthearted mood I'm gathering from these first three episodes feels like fresh air, and that is also something I really needed to see, especially for Shamy.

  3. This is an old school scenario which pops up every 3 - 4 months on the Shamy wishlist. I think it's an intriguing concept; it would be nice to think Sheldon is so comfortable with the knowledge he loves Amy that he can express it in a completely matter-o-fact way. So far we've gotten "I'm very fond of Amy" to Penny, as well as, "I like you quirks and all" to Amy's face, but we've never come close to the word love. Personally, I'm not sure that Sheldon is going to be able to express it as simply or easily as that in the long run; but it's nice to imagine one day he'd be so comfortable about it and yet drop it on Amy like a hot potato. One day I hope we'll see how their first "I love you" plays out. Michy and Kazzie - Thanks so much for the amazing taping report. It was amazingly detailed and beautifully laid out; you guys did a thorough job and I thank you. Kazzie, I'm sorry that you didn't get a kiss this time (I was concerned about you causing a scene; images of you being led away by security came to mind) but there's next week, right? I'm pulling for you to get a kiss; came so far for these tapings, you deserve them. As for the controversial line....on the "flat" reading of it I agree or see the point of what's been posted here about it's meaning. On the flip side, it says something to me that BBTguy, Kaz and Michy all had at least a twinge of a negative gut reaction to it. So I don't know if the issue is in the line as written - doesn't seem to be, from the perspective of people who know the episode from the taping report itself - or something in Jim's tone of voice when giving the line delivery. I guess I'm going to reserve any commentary until I see the episode itself, but overall I think it sounds adorable, and certain things, like Sheldon taking a fry from Amy's plate, the parallel play, their relationship test score, and the avocado bit do so warm the cockles of my little Shamy heart. I am very intrigued by what we have seen to start off this season and particularly in this last episode; as I read I kept wondering when the writers got so damn self-aware of themselves. Flat out bringing up the fact that Penny and Leonard have nothing in common, and both are nervous about that fact, told me that the writers have a better grip on the issues and truth about the Lenny relationship than I would have thought. Also, the things about "parallel play" and Sheldon needing to make up for the date nights he's been away, and Amy's pleasure in the RA - better than hot, it's binding! (awesome line) - show that they also have a very good grip on how the Shamy operates. I'm actually extremely grateful for the way things are playing out with Sheldon and Amy right now; we've got plenty of hints that the issue of Sheldon leaving has not been totally swept under the carpet - Amy confronted him with her anger, we know they obviously talked about him making up the time he was away, so they have definitely had conversations about the issue of his departure and are finding ways to deal with it - and yet we're not going through it in a melodramatic way. I don't want to shove my foot up Sheldon's ass. I don't want to serve Amy a double dose of Midol. The drama of the final's big cliffhanger is just sort of quietly being brushed away as we go back to sitcom business as usual - things are light and fluffy even though the issues the writers created are not being completely ignored. Thank you, writers. *pets* Nice writers.

  5. I think Sheldon sees everyone as inferior and driven by biological urges, it's not a matter of men over women. He's said the same kind of stuff plenty of times about men, and I think a lot of his old world views are just about parroting back what his father used to say without thinking about it. So I honestly don't believe Sheldon is genuinely sexist, especially because he does have a lot of respect for the women in his life and for female scientists. But I don't think one can say he's a feminist either or he *would* be thinking about how what he says is sexist nonsense before the words come out of his mouth. The truth is, again, he sees "humans" as inferior to start with, and feminism implies a form of activism in favor of other people, which is something Sheldon couldn't care less about.

  6. As much as I love the kisses, I think they would lose impact if we saw them more. Honestly I was surprised we got two last year so close together. Hopefully they are saving another one for something amazing.

  7. If we're going to be bringing that guy from "the other" comic book store back, and running some sort of Stuart/Comic book store/Shamy/Sheldon & change/new vs old and some sort of figuring out the future of handling the boy's comic book needs, I will just be in heaven. I loved the guy who owned the "evil" comic book store, and thought he had potential to be a very interesting character. He definitely had the charm and slimy, mischevious personality I could see having a seductive effect on the gang, and now that Stuart no longer has a comic book store they could be led astray into this man's evil web. It could lead to a certain sense of betrayal in Stuart, it could lead to Stuart wanting to open a comic book store again, and fight the fight of the "good" comic book store owner over the new guys flashy, Hollywood style, and it would be really fun to see people take sides or whatnot and just really get our geek on in the seedy but heroic underbelly of the comic book geek world. So I HOPE that's what we have coming - bring it on, TBBT! Comic book store geekery makes Lio a happy lion.

  8. I think that Sheldon has absolutely no problem with women having equal rights and opportunities as men, but, being a misanthrope, he has no interest in going out of his way to support it. He doesn't care to support feeding children, the eradication of disease, the humane treatment of animals, or world peace, either (and the show is no place for those issues to be addressed). That's just Sheldon. He's no activist, he's no humanitarian. He disrespects men just as much as he does women, anyway, probably even more so with men. It's a result of Sheldon's total lack of social skills, along with his misanthropy. Honestly, he tends to cause an altercation with most anyone he has a conversation with, regardless of their gender. He only respects a very small group of people, and a large portion of them are either fictional or dead. His main reason for holding someone in high regard is because of their intellectual caliber, or because of their role in a Sci-Fi franchise -- in these decisions, he doesn't pay attention to variables such as gender or appearance. He's never let on that women are any less deserving of his respect than men are; just that people in general aren't worthy of it.

  9. No, in no way is he a feminist. In the first season Leslie comments that he is misogynistic. He has at times said a plethora of insensitive things towards women. "Your ovary's are squirting goofy juice" "Woman are like egg salad sandwich in Texas on a hot summer day in Texas full of eggs and only good for a short time." "Eat one of your Luna bars often when woman are mad they are just hungry" Not to mention whenever a woman is upset around him he immediately goes to them being on their period. And he will be the first to admet he does not know the first thing about women. So as much as adore Dr.Cooper no he is not a feminist.

  10. This made me pull up Twitter for the first time in a month just to see what Kevin said! It's certainly plausible that there's a plot of the three of them dealing with evil comic book store guy. It sounds like the plot of a comic book, actually.

  11. I've actually wondered about this myself, but then the show has him reel off a slew of absolutely disgusting, Dark Age 'green sickness and hysteria'-level codswallop about ovaries squirting goofy juice and whatever that thing about egg salad was (ugh, boys, I agree, that was vile). The episode with those lines, though... they bothered me not just on general principles but because they betrayed a pointed misogyny that I'd never associated with Sheldon's character. I am willing to write it off as an anomaly, since I've said before that there's a version of Sheldon that I vastly prefer: the version that is clear-eyed about the value of role models in attracting young women to STEM, and the value of early interventions in so doing. But is it wishful thinking for me to say that that episode is the 'true' Sheldon, and the idiotic mediaeval-medicine spouting was the off episode? And what do we make of the observation that Sheldon's instances of prickish misogyny have occurred in the more recent past? Maybe the slightly disturbing idea that along with Sheldon's interest in sex has come other, darker manifestations of adolescence, such as fascination with and fear of the opposite sex? Nah, Occam's Razor. Both the episodes I quoted had Sheldon behave a certain way because the plot needed him to. For the most part, I'd agree with koops and sonic that Sheldon isn't a feminist or a misogynist, so much as a misanthrope and intellectual elitist.

  13. There has always been a charge of electricity between the characters from the opening "hi's"to her curiosity about HIS white board (not Sheldon's) all the way through to her "you, you stupid Pop-Tart". When they weren't together they were best friends. In those moments there were often glances of a sort of longing, one to the other. Sure they are each nervous about the future. They should be. Building a life together will be an adventure. But it will be an adventure they can go through together. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. The writers already make us know that Leonard and Penny are perfect for each other when they have Stuart make his little serious speech about how together they make one great person. They each fill in what the other lacks, that is why they are so good together, and the tenure episode is a perfect example, Leonard's brains and Penny's dazzle, the were a power couple there and everyone knew it. One thing about Penny, that makes her lovable in the show, is she does not play with people's affections, you know how she feels about people, so Leonard knows she really loves him and that is what Leonard really only wants, to be loved. He never really got that from Priya, he was a fling to her. Leonard lusted for her at first, but in the Halloween episode, I think he really saw her inter beauty. Penny is still a country girl at heart and Leonard still impresses her, she is proud to be with him and she has told people he is a Dr in the show before. They never seem to lack things to talk about, they are friends, she does trust him, he is obviously good enough in bed (of why would Sheldon need headphones and complain about all the 'Oh My Gods'), and he is cute and does cute things all the time. He has a lot of qualities that make him 'A Keeper', plus he is interesting to her. So them being together makes perfect sense to me.

  16. I wanted to see him saying "I love you" to Amy as it was a natural thing, like during a conversation, and when she acts surprised by the revelation he says something like "Why are you surprised? Of course I love you, there's no need in stating the obvious." I would die then.

  17. IMO Sheldon and Amy do have a stronger, more solid relationship than any body on the show. They are honest and open with each other. There is never any beating around the bush. When one of them has a problem with the other one, they found a way to address it reasonably. This is something that was established when Sheldon was trying to get back at Amy for ruining raider's. She let him know that any problem he has with her should be vocalized rather than internalized. They have a relationship agreement in order to freely discuss any problems or concerns that either one of them may have during the course of the relationship. They set up a system as a means of for them to get what they both want out of the relationship, not to mention work out common kinks that often occur in relationships. Leonard and Penny however, are afraid to be honest with each other. Leonard's fear is that Penny will get mad at him and Penny fears hurting Leonard's feelings. These are common problems in relationships but none the less an issue that Shamy doesn't come across very often because their dialogue is very up front. Sheldon and Amy are never afraid of how the other one will react. They also genuinely enjoy each other. Let me point out that if Sheldon was not dating Amy, he would likely not be dating anyone which is not the same for any of the other couples on the show. Sheldon enjoyed being on his own more than he enjoyed anyone's company but then Amy came along and he found an exception. He found the person who could move him to those uncomfortable places that he would otherwise have never ventured into. He is with her because he genuinely likes being around her. While I understand that the other couples on the show love each other, they are with one another for reasons other than love. They don't want to be lonely, they want to avoid sexual frustration, and of course there is Sheldon's least favorite paradigm, social conventions dictate you find a mate and get married or maintain a romantic relationship. These are all things that Sheldon did not care about and still doesn't. That's how you know he genuinely loves Amy even though he doesn't say it.

  23. @Cecilia: I do think Date Nights are more than once a month by now, since in S7 they had several in very quick succession, but I'm not sure if in the episode it said he was making up for lost dates specifically, or for the time he was gone overall (i.e. they went on the type of dates that Amy likes to make it up for all the time they didn't see each other). Maybe the attendees can clarify. @Phanta: The train "manipulation" is actually part of what I love about the Vday episode. The fact that, in that episode, the conflict stemmed from both of them being in the right in some ways and in the wrong in others. It was so much more realistic than when they just have Sheldon being a jerk so she can be frustrated at him. But also, that's the kind of episode that, once again, proves to me that Amy does not really care about the traditional romance stuff at all. All she wanted was to spend time with him on a special day, and be his sole focus. In the end, it didn't matter to her whether it was by sitting at a table drinking wine and gazing into each other's eyes or in a cramped engine room being shown how to bring a train to a crossing. All she wanted was to be with him. That's what makes me firmly believe that Amy does *not* really care for all that traditional romance stuff, it's just that it's the only thing she knows about how two people in a relationship are meant to relate to each other because it's all she's ever been exposed to. But it's the *relation* that she craves, not the form that it takes. And I think Sheldon got it with his "We got 8.2. Trust me, you are happy." It's not the mushy stuff that truly makes her happy, it's when Sheldon shows her what he feels, in his own way. And if we say, as we often do, that when Sheldon complains that he doesn't like handholding or is dismissive of sex etc, he is in denial about what he wants and/or hasn't yet figured out what he wants, then why does the same not apply to Amy when it comes to her obsession with candles and wine and sappy love declarations and her not realizing that, actually that isn't what she really wants?

  26. Depends on what you mean by curve-ball, I guess. Would a breakup be a curve ball? Because from the answer Molaro gave to Michy at CC, as well as his most recent interviews, it doesn't sound like that's an option in their minds at the moment. I personally don't think a breakup would be a curve ball because, like I said many times, there are other things I would be much less happy with than a separation (but I won't go into that discussion right now), but in any case I don't think the writers seem interested in telling any other story with Shamy than this slow-paced romance. If by curveball you mean something else, like Sheldon saying something really REALLY nasty or one of them doing something stupid, who knows! Depends whether Chuck shows up in the writers room with his evil hat on that morning

  29. I've been kind of holding back, waiting to see how everything shakes out, and waiting until I can read through the taping report again, just to make sure I have everything clear in my head. Having read everyone's take on it, I do think that I agree with koops wholeheartedly. What I thought when I first read the report was that it was totally in character with the Shamy relationship that they would be proud of their score on the test and that Sheldon would find as much assurance in that measurement, and the means of measuring, that he does in the RelAg. His comment about taking the "romance" out of it, is, in many ways, completely correct. If you think about it, so many couples rely on "tingles" that they want to feel when they meet someone, that they think their love and the quality of their relationship lives or dies on the "tingles". But as a pastor I heard once said, talking about marriage, is that it's not always fireworks and fanfare. Sometimes it's just Tuesday, and that your marriage (or relationship) has to endure the low points or the "normal" days as much as the highlights, that not every day or moment is going to be full of sparkles or fireworks or throes of passion. If you can survive dirty underwear, grumpy moods, cleaning the house, paying bills, just hanging out in the same room, even if you're each interested in something different, then you have a better chance at a long-lasting relationship than if you are counting on fireworks and passion at every moment. Just because you find you both like romantic dinners and walks in the moonlight, or whatever, doesn't mean that your relationship will last. Now, that's not saying that there's anything wrong with liking the mushy stuff, , but it's often the more mundane, non-romantic, even non-sexual, measurements that can predict the stability of a relationship. If you take the romance out and measure all the non-romantic stuff, you get perhaps a better view of what keeps the relationship working. As for Amy and her view of romance, again, I think it's true that it's when she tries to make Sheldon conform to whatever a "normal boyfriend" is supposed to be that things get unbalanced. And when Sheldon forgets that she's a girl, not just a colleague, or whatever, that things get unbalanced the other way. I think that they're working on finding that middle ground, but since Sheldon has the more obvious, more unconventional issues with romance and sex, he is the one who's journey toward those end goals is likely to be more highlighted. We already know that Amy loves Sheldon, that she wants to be intimate, that she hopes (or plans) to marry him one day, etc., and we know that Sheldon is somewhere along that same path, but with a different way of measuring those things. I think that since he kissed her, he's more likely to be thinking that he likes it, and that's a step on his intimacy ladder--but he seems to be a little scared of heights when it comes to that ladder. I don't think that he's trying to deny Amy something that will make her happy, but if such things are not his style, then why does he have to pretend to be something he's not. This is the same way I felt about Amy's train "manipulation" and her suggestion about moving in, in the finale. She is as capable of missteps as he is. With the train trip, she somehow thought that if she just got him on the train (which he would be happy about) that the candlelight dinner or the fact that it's Valentine's Day, or whatever, would suddenly transform him into some romance novel hero, that he would sit there and make googoo eyes at her and kiss the way Bernie and Howard did. She knows--she has to know--that that's not the way his mind works, that that kind of "romance", whatever it's worth, is not in his vocabulary. He kept trying to share his train enthusiasm with her--he was truly happy--and she kept grumping at him, rolling her eyes, etc. But he does know how to make "romantic" gestures--truly thoughtful or meaningful moments--that she never expects, which, IMO, are the best kind. They're just not conventional. He's never going to be the romance novel hero she imagines. But it doesn't mean that he doesn't care for her, or doesn't love her. We know he measures things in his own way, but those measurements are important and meaningful to him. The RelAg is not just a way to control Amy, but a way to control what he sees as chaos--that great miasma of feelings out there--and to assure both himself and her of the guarantees of their relationship--for both of them. So for him to find comfort in the high score they received as a couple is good. He feels good about the relationship--it's a success, not some kind of negative drain on his productivity, or any other negative thing. It does seem to me that the two couples were used as sort of foils for each other, to show how each of them works, even though they don't work in exactly the same way, or perhaps aren't measured in the same way. Leonard has always been the romantic, Sheldon the neurotic, but both have found their own measure of happiness in finding someone who gets them.

  30. What I really love about Shamy's place right now is that they seem to have the same easiness about their relationship as they did in seasons 4/5. They are enjoying each other's company and are just happy with each other. What I love even more is that there's definitely a romantic aspect to it now that was absent in the beginning. I think a lot of people were really worried that once you bring sexual tension and romance into Shamy's relationship, that all the things we used to love about them will go to crap. And things definitely seemed a little shaky the second half of s7. But I am feeling really good about season 8 so far!

  31. Very old world! And I'm pretty sure a lot of this was influenced by his father, who seemed to have been very old school about men's treatment of women. So I think in some ways this is Sheldon parroting what he's overheard from his father. The difference is that Sheldon truly doesn't believe that women can't be as accomplished as men. He's always mentioned how brilliant Amy is and one of his idols is Marie Curie.

  36. I don't think Sheldon is meant to be feminist or sexist but I really wish that he is never going to comment how an angry woman must be on her period again. It was funny at first cause it showed how oblivious Sheldon can be especially about things he does and make people angry and how literal he takes some things. I mean not every woman is angry during their period snapping even when people say something as simple as good morning. But it's just not that funny now I wish he never says something along these lines again. Him or any other character tbh.

  37. Okay random thought but has anyone here think that Sheldon is kind of a feminist? Sure, he has made some insensitive comments to Penny about her at times lack of femininity, her menstrual cycle, etc but he on occasion has exemplified a feminist mind set. One of the scientists on his screen was Marie Curie, rather than many of the other notable scientists he could have chosen to display, he was most helpful in Leonard's endeavor to get more girl's in science. In fact in that episode he straight out said he believes women and men should be at the same level (and incorporated Star wars or trek or whatever), he was threatened by Leslie Winkel whereas Kripke's success was a surprise to him and he refrained from using the term "bros before hoes" so he wouldn't offend the hoes. I don't know I just felt the need to express this thought even though it basically has nothing to do with where the show is going.

It was not the particular line had problems with I just get worried that the writers will do an about turn just to get us going. It is hard to forget the finale of season 7. However as I said I will continue to be cautiously optimistic. ETA - agree with you about the Season 8 Thread - too hot for my delicate ears !!!!

  43. Great post! I especially love the bold part, being a huge fan of the Relationship Agreement. The RA isn't just for Sheldon to be in control and for Sheldon to get his way, and that's what I love about it. It's a living document that they both use to put their demands and commitments and limitations out in the open. It's something they work on together on a regular basis, and it's a physical proof of every little progress their relationship goes through. So I am loving how the Agreement has come back, front and center, and is cited by Amy more often than Sheldon. Because, you know, it's better than hot! It's binding! Long live the Relationship Agreement!

  45. I'm really liking this episode so far and am not turned off at all by his comment. In fact, I'm really encouraged by it. First, from last season, Sheldon KNOWS Amy is in love with him and he's not freaked out by it. He acknowledges that they are a great couple which is supported by this scientific test (which for Sheldon means more than hippy dippy feelings, even though he has them and hides them). Sheldon is never going to stop being Sheldon. He's going to move forward whining until he gets to his comfort place and then rinse and repeat for the next thing. Every couple is different, but Sheldon and Amy laid the ground work for an awesome relationship by being fabulous friends first, they know how just to be. I love that they can be together in a room and not feel the need to speak or do something with the other, but get comfort from knowing the other one is there. I love that they can be weird and silly in their own way and not care what anyone else thinks. Of the two of them, I think Sheldon is the realist and Amy the dreamer, she making up for what she's thinks romance is supposed to be based on her romance novels, rom-com movies and observation of Penny and Bernie. I think Sheldon has more of a handle of really how their relationship truly is than she does. Does this mean that her desire for some romance, either through gesture or spoken word, is not warranted, absolutely not. Her needs are just that, hers. However, I think if she ever woke up to find dreamy eyed, over the moon Sheldon, she'd lose that feeling for him. She fell in love with brilliant, arrogant, quirky, not up for hippy dippy stuff Sheldon, she loves the challenge of him just as much he does of her. He's starting to give her what she needs (and I really do hope that there are off screen kisses we are not seeing, and that she's learning how to kiss him back) but will be able to give her more later while still staying Sheldon. Agreed. I don't read that as she's not happy. I read it as it would be nice if I could have this, too. No relationship fulfills everything we desire no matter how much we love the other person. We learn to love an appreciate what we get from our significant other and try to move past what we don't get, which is hopefully insignificant. It's all about give and take.

  46. I wish this comment had more 'likes'... And thank you BBTGUY for your insight. Lord, I feel so out of place here. Now I know why I never joined any reading club.

  47. I just do not agree at all that Lenny have something she and Sheldon don't. The only thing Lenny have that Shamy don't is physical intimacy. Have we forgotten about all the time Sheldon has said sweet things to her?! How about his whole speech in 7x05 which is essentially the exact same thing Leonard said to Penny here? "This is difficult, but I like you and I'm sticking by you no matter what". It's the exact same meaning but he said it to her a year ago. It's incredibly unfair to him to say "Oh Sheldon why can't you be sweet to Amy by being a sickening sap in public on command?". We have seen again and again that he can sweep her off her feet when she lets him be himself. I just do not feel at all that everything Amy wants is stuff that makes sense and she's always right to want it and should have it and everything Sheldon thinks about romance is him being ridiculous and a grump and unreasonable and he should just quit whining and give it to her. Why does Sheldon always have to learn that what Amy wants is the way things should be and she never has to learn that what she wants is actually not really all it's cracked up to be? I would be really disappointed if the moral of their story were just to get Sheldon to accept traditional romance and for Amy to never learn anything about herself. I would like this to be a give and take on every level, and that's exactly what this episode shows to me.
