    I have finally realized what makes Jim so unusually beautiful (besides the obvious LOL). It is the genuine passion and light and life and happiness that comes through his eyes. He is one of the most alive people I have ever seen. I could happily spend hours on end with him and his interviews because his energy is warm and lovely and so infectious. I am glad to have found him because he actually adds something to life! I love the way he and Todd look at each other. You can tell they are each other's universe.

    I could have watched another hour at least. That just made me so happy to watch. Jim really is delightful and his face when he and Todd were talking. So precious. And I actually would have loved to hear him answer more of the student questions. The two they showed were really thoughtful and interesting, and Jim answered them pretty well even if he did kind of meander and ramble around before getting to the answer, lol.

    Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Where did this come from? You are implying that I am hiding behind 'sneaky little 'likes' on the posts of people who actually have the moxie to address [you] directly'? Pfffffft! Don't flatter yourself. Far from it. I've jumped into various frays many times before. I was simply enjoying reading the vollying back and forth regarding this topic while completely disagreeing with everything you say. When did it become mandatory that I have to address your rambling, beligerent posts in any substantive manner? It's verboten that I just can't 'like' a post when someone says something I totally agree with, and, who says it in a more concise, definitive, more poetic manner than I ever could? No. I don't have to answer you or your concerns in any way, shape, or form. And if I choose to 'like' every other post on this forum except yours, I will. As a matter of fact, I will 'like' this very post after I publish it.

    Oh and before I get accused because I'm liking two of the above posts.... I've also been following the debate quietly and though I agree with many posts on both sides of the fence, going after people because they choose to like a post rather than wade into the fray is where I draw the line. This is a debate zone and as such, posters are allowed to disagree with each other, and support each other in the method they deem works for them. Sometimes that's an exposition post and sometimes its likes. That's the way forum life works so DEAL WITH IT. And one last thing: as a fellow woman and feminist don't be bringing the feminist agenda into this cause it has nothing to do with the topic or the current conversation. And quite honestly dragging it into this conversation not only derails it needlessly but also does a real disservice to the feminist agenda. There's a time and place for it and this isnt it. End rant. Sent from my C6616 using Tapatalk

    The jeans and shirts are getting tighter and the arms are getting huge. Wow, his trainers have earned their money. He looks delicious. I really need to just run my hands over it all. His body guard looks positively dumpy next to Jim.

    I think that the writers were lazy in their writing of all relationships that were not Shamy in Season 8. I think that there is plenty of narrative potential in Raj and Emily's relationship (it can be worrying for Raj, who wants so badly to be with someone, to find a lovely woman who is into him but just isn't quite right); in Howard and Bernie's attempting to navigate the loss of Howard's mother, and Howard's regression into childhood; in Leonard and Penny's mutual love, but also worries about things like their lack of shared interests. There's plenty of good stuff there. Yes, it may be hard to find the setup/punchline rhythm that the show prefers with these situations, but that doesn't mean that it's impossible, or that the writers shouldn't try to find the humour in them anyway. So, okay, you need to experiment, writers. If writers in your position can't experiment, then who the hell can? I also think that Leonard's infidelity was an arse-pull done to rationalise the lackadaisical attitude the writers took towards the Lenny wedding. Now, don't get me wrong, I didn't want S8 to be all Lenny wedding, all the time. But I definitely found it weird that the characters (Leonard especially) seemed to be spinning their wheels. And then they brandished something as serious as infidelity to say 'see, Leonard's attitude made sense after all!' The thing is, no it didn't. The writers didn't write Leonard as guilty, or hesitant, or anything like that, over the season. i am withholding judgement until the first few episodes of S9. If the storyline plays out as 'Leonard also worries that he and Penny don't have stuff in common, and that is why he sabotaged the Vegas wedding', then I will allow it- so long as they follow through on it! If the storyline plays out as something like 'Penny sees the other girl and realises that Penny is way hotter and therefore forgives Leonard and everything is hunky dory', then I call shenanigans, show. Also, the will-they/won't-they thing was never the most compelling thing to me about the Leonard/Penny relationship. I liked them very much in S7, when they were together, being loving and playful and supportive. They were delightful then. The on/off thing makes me roll my eyes faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar into the back of my skull. YMMV, of course.

    I fully understand the nature of this thread. And I was very happily following the spirited debate on the sidelines until you threw me into it when I didn't offer any comment on anything but supported the opinions of others which just happened to be contrary to yours. If I wanted to join you in your continually beligerent rant, I would have offered dialogue hours ago. A passing interest in the debate, reading it, and hitting the 'Like' button by no means means that I want or care for full investment the same or, most importantly, that you are entitled to throw me in the middle of it. That is just ignorant and very bad form. Going to Tensor? Done and done.

    That shirt does nothing for his sexy back. I think TBBT's wardrobe department needs to get him bigger 3/4 sleeve shirts. Sometimes whenever he moves his arms (in the show), seems like the undershirt would rip on the sleeves. Well I wouldn't mind the shirts ripping at the back though, that would be total droolfest for me. That back makes me want to climb onto him like a tree.

    And now I can officially say: you ARE wrong. Not in your opinions, because as you pointed out, opinions are subjective, but you are wrong in your assumptions. Why are you assuming that people hide behind their likes? Can't they just like a post? Can't they just agree with another poster? Again, being belligerent for NO reason. I really don't know who the hell you think you are that people have to answer to your posts and do it in the way you want them to. Also in the characterization of the rationale for your opinion there are two things that I find particularly interesting: 1) You characterize the Lenny relationship as a will they-wont they, which is not. It might have been like that at the very beginning, but if you remember correctly before the end of the first season they had already kissed, and by mid third season (I believe) they had already split. So I don't know where the will they wont they that you allude to comes in. The only real build up between them was to the "I love you" by Penny, and that didn't hinder the quality of the writing, so... 2) Isn't it convenient that every time someone tells you about an example that contradicts your theory of how difficult it is to write a couple after they settled (from a long build up -which is a false premise anyway-) you haven't seen the series they're talking about? Well ... the fact that you don't know said series, does not make any of those invalid examples, and in reality what does it matter if there are or aren't any examples? This is TBBT and in itself is a different sitcom from most, and as such the rules that apply are within the context of the series and the limits or lack thereof of its characters as written by the writers. I know I haven't addressed all you points, but in my estimation I have rendered two very important ones, completely irrelevant. I'm usually not as good as you are in presenting specific examples to support my opinions, but when I say that what they're doing with Lenny is lazy writing it's more a feeling that I get. However, when I view past episodes the differences become more apparent and the greater care put in writing the characters and their stories is more evident.

    The guys going to a comic convention as original Star Trek and at the last moment the girls show up to go with them dressed in uniforms. The gang going on a road trip and another funny night, Amy and Sheldon having to share a bed, with them falling asleep at both ends but next morning they are spooning and Sheldon gets to second base. Group paintball I want Penny to walk into 4A for takeout night, and immediately go to sit in Leonard's lap, then steal his food. I want something in Penny's apartment to break and her have to live with Leonard for a few episodes, and then when she goes back she takes Leonard with her. Sheldon gets tenure and Leonard later gets Gablehauser's job as Sheldon boss. Leonard and Sheldon almost get nominated for a Nobel for Leonard's idea which goes big. Penny gets an part time acting job, like Emily on TBBT has.

    Since you last addressed me I haven't read any post by you, because before I do I wanted to address your observation that I'm gunning for you. Absolutely not. Again being belligerent for no reason, and again, wrong. Actually up until this point I have quite enjoyed your posts. The last series of posts by you that I remember were an argument you had with Mekka un which I was agreeing with you and not him. I might have even "liked" your posts without explaining myself to Mekka. Imagine that (the horror). I will no engage in a discussion with you, because quite frankly your reply doesn't satisfy me. And finally, in order to "gun" for you I would have to care about what you say much more than I do. Sorry but I don't.

    1. There has been too much angsty not liking the significant others' interests in this show so it would be nice to see the girls get in the spirit. They complain a lot but in reality they more go their separate ways than give in to the boys so would like to see a bit of embracing the interests of the others. And the other way too. Not quite sure what Bernie is into, to be honest. That could be something for Howard to do to make up for all his childish behaviour. 2. Definitely a road trip (group episodes please) and happy with the Shamy plot but not sure if the Love Car scenario works this time since the couples are all together now - how do Sheldon and Amy 'end up together"? 3. Paintball is pre Amy/Bernadette so ship might have sailed. But S8 did have a lot of callbacks so why not? I do like a good paintball ep, although they don't compare to the "Community' ones. Again, group episode please and more mismatched couples like Scavenger would be funny. 4. Yep, do it. Not a lot needed by the writers for that one. Just let them do it - often. Won't hurt and good payback for hurt Lennies! 5. As long as they broke it! 6. Nice payback for Leonard. Like it - but writers won't do that to Sheldon will they? 7. Nice for both, esp. Leonard. Gets Sheldon excited to get close to his life's goal then - not happening. It's almost a given Sheldon has an almost event on a regular basis so why not an almost nomination? It can't actually happen since they try to make the science world real in this show. 8. Can always cling on to that hope. Just think it makes Penny a more interesting character and the potential for real conflicts of interest between Lenny with potential acting career is far more worthwhile than forced unbelievable tension like the stupid North Sea kiss fiasco.

    I find it ironic that the bodyguard is both smaller/shorter than Jim and much less fit. I am pretty sure the bodyguard works for the theater company. Something tells me Jim can take care of himself pretty well (just a hunch.)

    I don't know that it's really a "storyline" as much as it is a detail that comes up now and then. They have only mentioned it in certain circumstances and mostly for the comedy potential, so I don't think it's really that big a deal.

    Thank you so much! I want Amy to feel genuinely conflicted between the two. The next chapter is hard to write...little bit of writer's block!

    Plus, we've seen both Sheldon and Amy drunk and they were both hilarious in this condition. (Jim and Mayim can both do "drunk" like nobody's business!) I can imagine that if they were drunk together it would be comedy gold!

    "... The back of your neck Oh, what the heck I want to touch your body! Would you think of me as naughty If I were to violate your personal space and get up close and..." Seems appropriate

    For the record, I don't like the infidelity storyline either. I can hazard a guess why they did it (as I have done based on my observations) but that doesn't mean I think it's good. A tension bringer? Sure! Good? Yeeeaaaah, no! I'm kind of stumped actually. I can pinpoint the pinnacle for Niles and Daphne in Frasier (when they ran out of the wedding in the Winnebago) but Lenny's more nebulous, I can't put my finger on it. They are a little more like the Ross/Rachel in Friends trajectory I think. Will have to ponder on...watch this space...

  34. 1 point
    Agree it should be dropped. It became overdone for me when writers pulled this same idea over with Lenny after Howardette. Seems to me like too much of a TV relationship cliche to fit in such an unconventional show. And yes,really vasu, at least where I'm from, it's pretty common and nobody sees such a big deal in it. Agree it's passe.

    I think they should get rid of it simply because, given their occupations, it's not realistic. In the real world Howard wouldn't be making "peanuts". The concept that the girls make more is great in the sense that it should seem like a normal thing, but the execution is lacking in my opinion.

    Why, it's the way I feel. If you don't feel the same way, fine, I'm not going to challenge you on it. I disagree they worked things out, not talking about the wedding because they had cold feet. Sweeping the money problem under the rug with the "Well at least we know what not to do". Or the sweet statement by Leonard cutting off discussion about their fears. Leonard never mention his specific fears, and they didn't talk about Penny's. Leonard hiding how he cheated. But, the examples don't matter as you are probably looking at it differently than I am. We're never going to see eye to eye on it, so why bother going round and round with it? And You enjoy the show your way, I'll enjoy it may way. And if it makes you feel better to challenge another's feelings about the show, have at it. .

    I agree with you, but still want more Lenny story in the show, as a couple, maybre married couple - not drunken kiss case. Dharma and Greg is about two people who met, felt in love at the first sight and get married. All this show is about differences between them, how they resolve problems. Jim and Cheryl are from tv show "According to Jim", is about long-time marriage couple with kids. I gave these examples of couples to show that there are interesting and funny tv shows of married couples. To be married doesn't mean be boring, that's all.

    Like that, Mississippi. Lenny haven't quite got it all figured out yet and that should continue to be the story, instead of stalling it. It doesn't need to be challenged by artificial traumas like the boat kiss. Just let them have their little challenges along the way with their different life perspectives clashing as they work out how to get the balance right to make this happiness last. Nothing wrong with love being the common factor with lots of differences on the peripheries making the improvised dance interesting to balance. Twenty five years with my non nerdy, non sport and trivia loving wife hasn't been spoilt by our differences. The common way we feel about each other makes it work. The same can be said for Leonard and Penny. I waffled on a lot longer in Shipping Lanes in response to ATOB if interested in the longer version.

    For me, they stopped working things out over the last two years. If you think they still are working things out, by all means enjoy the show as you see it.

    I still think the writers could do more its just that they seem to think everyone is more interested in Sheldon and shamy so why concern themselves with Lenny. It would like watching Robin hood for 7 seasons because you like robin then the writers decide that little john should be the star

    That could be a very interesting dynamic for them to explore in Season 9... It's also yet another example of how this is just one big misunderstanding. Honestly, they just need to sit down and talk it out.

    I'd like to see Sheldon meeting Amy's mother in person (and father, and if he's not alive, that he is mentioned). I think Lenny will get married in Vegas. It makes sense, they have lots of awkward and cute moments, with a weird wedding they would keep that pattern. I want them to live together and have little conflicts of newlyweds, even though they've been together for a long time, it would be fun to watch. I would like Sheldon to take Amy to Texas with him in a holiday or occasion (nephew's birthday, anything) I want to see Sheldon propose in this season (the sooner the better) And I'd like Howard and Bernie to "adopt" Stuart, and make him live with them permanently.

    Mommy's here! "I know, I'm excited too, Mommy will be home soon. You miss her, don't you? I know. I miss her too." Sheldon walked towards his spot, taking the tea with him. "And this is your mommy's tea, you can't touch it, ok?" He accommodated himself in his spot, taking a sip of his mug and sighing. "Yeah, I'm concerned too, she's three minutes late." Suddenly, he heard the key turning and Amy appeared at the door. "Mommy's here! Were you guys waiting for me?" "Yes, we missed you. Giuseppe talked about you all day."
