  1. Just have to share that yesterday we saw the WB studios and saw Jim's production companys signage which I don't remember seeing before so major kudos to him and Todd. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  2. The title is most definitely intriguing and, like I said on Twitter, I'm trying REALLY REALLY hard not to get my hopes up because, frankly, if I were writing this the way I want to see it go from here, that's the title I'd pick too. Assuming the title does indeed refer to Shamy (and I would be surprised if it didn't at least partly refer to them - as in, the title is about both couples like in the finale) Oscillation means going back and forth, which would fit with the idea that Amy was pushed into a rash decision and is now second guessing herself and changing her mind back and forth about wh

  3. I don't understand why every time Amy wants to see some form of "traditional" romantic gesture, she gets brow beaten. The argument is that if Sheldon were to do this it would totally wreck his character. Can't Shamy have an 90% "unconventional" romance with 10% traditional romance? Can't Amy get both flowers and a mushroom log? Can't she have a prom date with arms? Is this too much to ask a romantic partner, even if it's Sheldon Cooper? She did find the RA "romantic" when Sheldon gave it to her, but then she read it and said and I quote "Seems a bit restrictive." She should have retained a la

  4. Well, I liked the episode where Sheldon and Amy go dancing, certainly. But no crawling, please. Amy overreacted, Sheldon pushed instead of giving her space, Amy snapped and broke up with him in the heat of the moment. Both acted in the heat of the moment, neither acted to deliberately hurt the other person, no grovelling or profuse apologies or grand gestures are necessary. I can see Sheldon apologising for the 'eggs' remark, because that was certainly out of line, and it would be a nice sign of growth that he recognises that himself. But I am especially opposed to Beaux Gestes in the Grand Ro

  5. Yes - to me this show is just as much about the girls growing up as the boys. Penny has always had a hard time getting emotionally close to the men in her life - that, and I suspect, a provincial, working class upbringing around people who didn't understand her dream are what basically connect Penny and Sheldon, and only when she grows past that can she truly be vulnerable enough to let Leonard love her as they would both want him to. Bernie has to learn that temper tantrums are best left behind, and remember that she has a husband, and not a child. She needs to step back and allow his growth

  6. I don't think Sheldon and Amy will necessarily have scenes together this week, and I don't think they're necessary to give an idea of where they're at and where they're going as a couple. Dialogue with their friends can be plenty informative about that. Actually I hadn't thought about the group oscillating between the two couples in the wake of all this drama, that's a good interpretation. Regardless, if we are essentially saying "the premiere set the tone, Shamy are broken up for good, and now we are back to upswing episodes and get ready for 20 more of these with the current dynamics", I'm n

  7. Yeh so another exciting day! Secret Agent at work You're welcome! Oscillation means to go up and down in a term (we wish right?) Or go back and forth. Shamy have separated. Im thinking maybe Sheldon brings in the relationship agreement here to try and contractually get her back but it fails on him. From what we saw today. The hallway to Amy's Apartment is setup and her apartment behind. I couldn't tell if it was her bedroom or actual living room though.. From my stand point.. the only thing I could see was "AMY APPART" written on the back of the set walls, and we could just make out the far

  8. Here's what he said: In the three years that I’ve known you, you were single for two. During that time, I saw 17 different suitors. If we work backwards, correcting for observation bias and postulate an initial dating age of 14*. Now, assuming the left side of a bell curve peaking around the present, that would bring the total up to 193 men. Plus or minus eight men. *Penny corrected Sheldon's guest at starting dating to be 15. Now, let's look at these statements. I'll start with his bell curve statement. A bell curve is a smoothly increasing Gaussian function, that peaks, then falls off t

  9. That is true, they went through a 3-4 month love test while Leonard was gone, spending huge amounts of time alone, but when Leonard returned she dropped Sheldon like a bad fish. So if she didn't love him then, what makes anyone think a one hour test togehter is going to spark anything. I have to agree with people that say the love test was just a nail in the coffin of Shenny, because they made such a big deal of the sibling and parent type of love for each other.

  10. People here don't brow beat Amy. If anything, Sheldon gets shit everytime he doesn't bend to Amy's every little whim. Here's the deal (in my opinion of course), there is nothing wrong with Amy wanting traditionally romantic things. But, the issue I have is that tptb, seem to play on this idea that she wants this romance novel style love affair and had a bit of a pie in the sky idea of what relationships should be like. First of all, I don't think that is true to the Amy character. It's something that just comes up out of nowhere. Second of all it isn't fair to Sheldon. Why the h

  12. I have been thinking and discussing this and I really don't think this will be either couple more girls vs. boys 1. Usually very funny plots aka kinda needs an upswing from last week 2. From the set the Comic book store and Caltech Cafeteria to me scream boys alone time 3. Bernie kitchen and Amy's apartment could just be girls going to each other Now both groups of course will discuss their current situations and yes Amy might express some regret and Sheldon might unlease the knowledge of the ring to Leonard. Only kink is the Mandy casting... Not sure Also the title could be a play and be

  14. Ok, I need to emphasize once again that when I say things like "Amy wanting traditional romance" I am not talking about it as if Amy were a real person and as if nobody should ever want traditional romance or that there's anything wrong with it. I am not putting a disclaimer at the start of every post, but what I am talking about is from the writers' persepective, because that is all that determines what does or does not happen on screen and what Sheldon/Amy do/do not want and desire. Nobody is saying that Amy should NEVER enjoy traditional romance. The point is that the show has never shown S

  16. I believe, because I don't know, that they will be funny. And despite the crap wedding they will have a great marriage, eventually. If they don't annul the marriage it will be funny if they try to live apart, and if they stay married it will open new opportunities as they move together, like SRAM suggests. I don't mean to be an apologist, but if they do this right it might pay off. The "cheater, cheater" taunts are sad, but I don't think he is going to make a habit of that. And Sheldon will always be mostly Sheldon. Leonard has a different job in the show now and isn't a babe in the woods anym

  18. I would like to see Sheldon make Penny sigh a wife addendum to the roommate agreement and then the first decision, Sheldon realizes that it is now two against one and he isn't the tie breaker anymore. Sheldon walks into the bathroom, silk bras and panties on the shower curtain, "LEONARD! She is your wife, so this is on you!"

  19. I hear you, Nograv, about the cliched situations not standing out to probably a more nuanced/sophisticated viewer who also has other entertainment options readily available to them. But you know what? When it comes to Lenny, I am really getting weary of the continual drama being continually tilted to the Lenny side. Let the Shamys have that apple pie worm for a bit -- have Faisal show up or something. I'd love to see a happy, comfortable, joyous NOT NEGLECTED Lenny. And I do like original, creative situations but right now, I wouldn't mind some funny tried and true cliched hijinks from our fav

  20. Well I thought it was a sweet episode. They have a nice friendship and I know other Shamy shippers and Lenny shippers who agree with me. The biggest disappointment for me was that Leonard and Amy didn't follow through with the test. It could've been a great bonding session for them. The zombie stuff wasn't particularly fun. Well I found it an irrational overreaction because nothing happened other than Sheldon and Penny realising that they have grown closer as friends and are like family to each other. Don't see why that's bad.

  27. I actually agree. I think the bottom line here is that because Sheldon *has* sent mixed messages in certain realms of their relationship that Amy is particularly sensitive about (their future, and physical intimacy), Amy is seeking some sort of obvious clue from him in the form of traditional romance just because she has no other meter to measure it on. I keep going back to 7x15 and how well that whole conflict at the end was written: Amy just wants to know he feels the same and wants to be close to her and be as caught up in her as she is in him. Given that, back then (totally not the case i

  28. I think your post is a perfect example of what has been wrong in the show recently, you just, off the top of you head, described several good funny plots with Lenny, if the writers are professionals they should see those obvious funny plots too. So why don't they? Lenny being newly weds can be very funny for the next two seasons as they both try to adjust and get involved in each other's interests, plus adjust to living with each other all the time, if the writers put an interest into the characters.

  32. Precisely, and while it didn't threaten Lenny, the whole Intimacy episode was so unnecessary. As little as I agree with vasu normally, it appears (and I'll be sure once it airs) that Sheldon and Penny intimacy test got more screen time than Leonard and Penny's wedding. Isn't that wonderful.

  33. From my experience it gets more insightful once episodes start airing. For one thing there are a lot more people posting once things get underway. Also just after the TR gets posted there is a bigger variety of opinion. At the moment we getting a lot of lingering sour grapes.

  34. you're exactly right. Leonard has always been the glue that held the entire group together. Sheldon would have never befriended Howard and Raj on his own, and without Howard and Raj meddling in online dating for Sheldon, no Amy. Sheldon would have never befriended Penny on his own either. It was only Leonard's almost immediate pursuit of Princess Penelope that drew her into Sheldon's life allowing them to become sibling- like friends. Leonard's character doesn't deserve this, and I think this is why most of us want a quick, complete, and positive resolution to this OOC kiss!

  36. It is just the theme of the show is the two worlds colliding, Penny's and Leonard's. She has fell in love with the nerd and now married him, but the story is not over, they now have to find a middle place in their lives to make it all work, forever. They really weren't ready for marriage, they did it on a whim, they didn't even live together first, now she really can't live apart from him, it would be weird. (As a matter of fact him spending his first night back without her is extremely weird, he should have slept on her couch.). Anyway, like I said there is still a lot of story there for L

  39. While I agree with that second part,it's quite easy to show that Sheldon's assumptions, and thus the number he arrives at for the number of Penny's sexual partners, are quite wrong.

  40. Mislav, There are other ways to point out Chrismo's hypocrisy instead of in essence saying "oh yeah? Well Penny slept with 30+ guys" (I know that is not what you said, but that is how I took it). The fact that Amy had however number of orgasms induced clinically during an experiment is of no consequence and does not matter at all in connection with or in regards to any relationship she has. It just does not matter and should not come into play. The fact that I have a problem with the constant dredging up of Penny's past sexual history (and in my opinion, the gross exaggeration of the numbe

  41. After that nightmare of a premiere, I think we need to expect the worst instead. That way we won't get our hopes up, and we can be pleasantly surprised if things actually turn out good.

  42. in reality there was no way Amy knew that Sheldon was going to show up at the movie theater. So Amy and Stuart were on a date. A matter of fact Shamy's first date was with Penny. It wasn't romantic. Going with your logic it really wasn't a date. Leonard kissing Mandy many Lennies I believe would argue changes the dynamic and the beauty of their relationship. Some would argue Leonard kissing Alice and Mandy are the same thing but IMO is comparing apples and oranges. Priya was never Leonard's number one choice Penny was. If the writers can "destroy" Lenny they can also"destroy" Shamy.

  43. And this is how she described Sheldon: Amy: Not just my first boyfriend, he’s the best boyfriend. I mean, think about it. I’m dating Sheldon Cooper. Penny: Yes. On purpose. Amy: He’s handsome, he’s lanky, he’s brilliant, and his skin has that pale, waxy quality. Big difference imho.

  45. Yes wow!!! Thank you! I'm so over the whole sex thing by now that I will frankly be pissed if they don't get it over and done with this season. And, like you, it's not that I want this because I desperately need them to have sex (I too would have been happy with them staying boy/friend/girl/friend forever), but because I think there is SO much more to their relationship than waiting on them to lose their virginity to one another. I find to reduce their whole journey to that one moment, like it would be if they held out on it until the very end of the show, is so insulting to the complexity of

  46. Stuart and Amy went on two dates. Dale was running the comic book store when they went out for the first date. The second date to the movies. I have a hard time seeing that Stuart and Amy as friends, as the first time they met was at the comic book store a day or two before they went out. And Amy's "I don't know. He's nice. He's funny. He has the sallow, drawn countenance associated with an overactive thyroid gland. That's kinda hot." doesn't sound as if she considered him a friend, at the time.

  47. Amy never touched Stuart beyond a hug...no kissing, no hand holding...and one movie date, where she accepts being Sheldon's girlfriend is not really a "typical" date. Penny and Leonard both had not only kissed other people, but slept with other people. They came with experience and neither were virgins. Sheldon and Amy are virgins and have been each others' firsts. Sure Amy went out with Stuart, but she was never interested in him nor did she share anything more than a night out with a friend. 128 orgasms by a brain stimulated experiment is hardly the same thing and you know it Chrismo.

  48. sorry i disagree L and P are not unique to each other. Amy dated Stuart in s5, i dont see any difference here. I dont want this to degenerate into some ship war. But i dont agree Lenny are not unique to other. Just because that what normal looks like lol, doesent make them any less unique. Im.more a lenny then shamy, as them being mismatched is more interesting to me. Just my opinion.

  49. I think the whole accident rumor is hysterical. It's pretty obvious these "news sites" come on here for spoilers, and can't even tell fans' speculation and random scenarios from actual spoilers. People were discussing the possibility of a car accident (half jokingly) in the Spoilers thread for fun. I really believe that's where the whole idea of the "car crash" came from. From a purely speculative perspective, I don't think something as dramatic as a car crash fits the tone of this show, unless it's something REALLY minor that Sheldon blows out of proportion (be it his injuries or Amy's).
