  1. Welcome to Sitting Here Beside Myself – the Karen and 5Mississippis Show! (cheers and mad clapping from audience) Karen: Hello! And welcome to ‘Sitting Here Beside Myself! (Karen turns to 5Mississippis) So of you may have noticed that the prodigal 5Mississippis has returned from her self-imposed exile in Elba 5Mississippis: No! No! Not Elba. Like Napoleon, I was downgraded to Saint Helena. (Audience laughs) Karen: (nods sagely) I see. Even worse. So why the return? 5Mississippis: Well, there’s a taping tonight. And I find myself circling above the field of carnage like a vulture who has caught the scent of carrion. (Audience groans and boos) Karen: (looks shocked) That’s a little strong. 5Mississippis: I know! I know! So like my time on Elba and then Saint Helena, I'm hoping for some island action! Karen: (smiles appreciatively) Oh! Yes! Like the lovely kitchen island antics Leonard and Penny have been relegated to this season! 5Mississippis: Yes! Exactly! Karen: Personally, for me, the real question is: will Leonard’s and Penny’s coffee mugs make a return tonight? When they stand behind the island, boy oh boy, do I sure do love it when they cradle those mugs in their hands. And when they take the tea tag and lift the string, dipping the bag in the hot water, well, let’s just say, I melt! Two words: Karen jello! (Audience claps and cheers) Karen: (smiles at audience) Am I right? Am I right? 5Mississippis: (nods and smiles) But, you what Karen? I’m truly hoping for a little more Leonard and Penny action tonight! (Audience ooohs and aaahhs) Karen: 5Mississippis! (slaps 5Miss on the arm) You’re being very naughty! Tell us, what are you hoping for? 5Mississippis: Well, Karen, get ready to be covered in socks! Because what I’m going to say right now is going to blow the socks off this entire audience! (Karen makes a surprised face, the audience claps and cheers) 5Mississippis: What I’m hoping for is … that we actually see Leonard and Penny … come out from behind the island! (Audience cheers and chants: come out from behind the island! come out from behind the island! come out from behind the island! while Karen and 5Mississippis nod happily) 5Mississippis: And maybe, just maybe (audience goes silent, you can hear a pin drop) we’ll get to see some … Karen: (gasps) No! You mean … 5Mississippis: Vintage Lenny! (Audience cheering) 5Mississippis: I really want to see … Karen: (laughing) Don’t say it! It’s too much! It’s too much! The world will explode! 5Mississippis: I’m gonna say it! I hope we see Leonard get up out of his chair, cross the room to the refrigerator, retrieve a bottle of water, and hand it to Penny! (Audience goes mad with screams and cheers) Karen: You are a wild woman! You are a wild woman! (looks at audience) Is this a wild woman or what?! 5Mississippis: And I’m talking just a few seconds here. So no way all this vintage Lenny will distract from Sheldon or Shamy. Karen: (nods head in agreement) That’s good. That’s good. (wags finger at audience) It’s very important that we do that, you know. We can’t take any time away Sheldon or Shamy. 5Mississippis: (nods solemnly) Agreed. Agreed. Karen: And there you have it! Our wishes for tonight’s taping! I’m hoping that Leonard and Penny are holding their coffee mugs on the kitchen island while 5Miss hopes that Leonard hands Penny a bottle of water! Well that’s all we have for this week! And thank you for joining us, me and 5Mississippis, in Sitting Here Beside Myself!

  2. Just watched Monopolar in Oz. "it means I wish you weren't going". When she leans on that looking so sad, that to me was Penny fully exposed. No hiding behind snarky comments, no looking smug reacting to comments about her looks, no put downs about Leonard's faults. Just a woman openly exposing her true feelings about the man she has finally realized she loves ( even though it took 3 more seasons to say it). We could do with more of that Penny. I think. If they can just gets some time alone instead of babysitting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. Sheldon and Amy both drunk at the same time is actually at the top of my wishlist. Who knows what can happen...

  4. ^^^^^ Love -- no adore -- that moment! I fell in love with this show because of its unique premise. Not 'nerd falls in love with hot girl next door' because THAT has been done ad nauseum. But the reverse of that 'hot girl falls in love with nerd' is especially sweet and unexpected. And, for me, THAT was the amazing glory of the earlier years of The Sheldon Show! Ah er, I meant TBBT. Sorry.

  8. I just want to see Shamy on the couch in 4A eating with the gang but close enough to be touching. Can't we just get thighs touching while they eat, or his arm thrown behind her as they all watch a movie or something? Pretty please, writers? Anything to let us know they have physical contact besides one night of sex?

  9. Incidentally, the 'VD' shorthand for 'Valentine's Day' combined with 'VD present' and 'giving [Amy] for VD' make me cackle, because 'VD' stands for something rather different where I am....

  10. Of all the seasons, I actually like the Lenny of Season 1-2 the most. It actually had some of the sweetest, most genuine and honest moments of their relationships in the show. Think about it, we got - -Hi! hi!hi! hi! -Penny's appreciation of his attempt at helping a virtual stranger to confront that giant bully Kurt -That awkward first "not a date" -Her defending of Leonard and first kiss in the Halloween party -His willingness to dump nerdvana to change and her insistence that he didn't because that was part of him being a great guy -His constant entering of her room to console her when she was upset -The awkward response to Mary Coopers "are you two a couple" observation -Her attempt to throw him a birthday party -Her good natured advice and maybe or maybe not innocent appearance in her underwear during the Stephanie relationship -Her happiness for him when a girl did like him - her constant "where's Leonard" entrances -Her attempts to be there for Leonard in his big moments-the presentations, the physics bowl -His support for her despite being hurt by her other male interests -Her defense of him despite his new infatuation with whatshername the model upstairs -The Lime Kiss -The Cats Alive Kiss The 5 Mississippi hug -The blanket with sleeves -The I wish you weren't going I've probably missed a few more but I'm trying to wear myself and get back to sleep. And by the way, the last couple of pages - this is what I enjoyed about this thread before it all went battleground. So much more fun thinking of good times even if it has to be a history lesson and welcome back funny Karen ( come on Tonstar, give it s go ). This instead of Law and Order - The Meka division and Carlos,Tensor and JE7 banging their heads up against a brick wall fighting the unwinnable court case. I miss this.

  12. The two versions of the cafeteria scene do not refer to Sheldon's plans for VD. Howard explains that his own plans involve using his brand new hot tub and says Sheldon "Do you know what I mean?" (referring to sex). In the first version of the scene Sheldon answers "Yes" and then turns to Raj changing the subject; in the other one he says "No idea" and then turns to Raj. Personally, I hope they will choose the first one, it would be funny if Sheldon could catch sexual references, once in a while, but since they reshot the scene, I suspect they will go with the second one, and with the old joke about Sheldon being clueless. As for his VD inexistent plans, he says something like that, indeed...When Amy and Sheldon begin their podcast, Amy says that it is a VD present Sheldon is giving his affectionate audience, and Sheldon replies that it is also a VD present for her, since he hasn't anything else planned for the evening. That really sounds like Sheldon to me, the guy has always hated VD, no wonder he tries to avoid classical romance as much as he can. It's just so telling that he has come up with an idea that allows him to enjoy the evening and as well Amy to celebrate it. He is trying, of course, but it would be unbelievable if he all in a sudden becomes all sweet and tender. And the "Dr. S.C. and Dr. A.F.F. present "Sheldon Cooper's FwF" it's also so him, he is willing to share anything with Amy but the merit of having created it. Amy reaction is also "classic" Amy. I agree that the version "It's catchy" it's a little funnier than the other they shot, but anyway I think she will say the line in a sarcastic tone, so the gist of it is more or less the same, they are Shamy 2.0 but of course they are the same people they were before, so some things will never change, thanks goodness, for me!

  14. So much this. That's why I'm always confused when people say that Lenny's love story is cliché. It really isn't. She fell for him almost as quickly as he fell for her. When the guys all met Penny for the first time, Leonard was the only one who treated her completely normal. Yes, he was clearly attracted to her, but he didn't hit on her like a creep the way Howard did, didn't give her the silent treatment like Raj, or acted like Sheldon. He just tried to engage in normal conversation in order to make her feel welcome. He was just being a genuinely decent guy to her. Man I wanna re-watch S1 now. Vintage Lenny are always great to watch.

  16. Yeah, I know, quoting myself is not cool, but since we're talking about vintage... I'm still pretty proud of ^this little post I made It contains some of the million reasons why I love this couple so much. I popped in just to add it to today's beautiful posts I also wanted to say that I'm perfectly aware not everything is going okay in the show as far as Lenny are concerned (I'm a positive person, but neither deaf nor blind). Something is clearly missing and I'm a little disappointed. BUT... precisely because I'm a glass-half-full kind of girl (call me naive, if you want), I've decided that I will never give up. Even if it will be a small piece of Lenny cake (better, Lenny Pop-Tart ), I want to eat it all. #longlivethehofstadters * goes back to hiding in her corner, eating a delicious Strawberry Pop-Tart, of course *

  19. I would like to see the man-for exactly the reasons you mention. I would like the show to implicitly condemn his behaviour so that Leonard is brought face to face with the uncomfortable parallels and his own unfortunate tendency to whip out the tired old Freudian excuse ('my mother ruined my life'). I actually like the parallel between Penny and Leonard in that they are both imprisoned by their childhoods and struggling to accept adulthood and consequences. Unfortunately Chuck Lorre, from my memory of the very few episodes I watched of two and a half men before I threw up, may prefer the idea of the sadsack getting his own back on the castrating shrew through the medium of nubile young ladies. and yes please, show, can we please stop having Leonard gush quite so fulsomely about Penny's beauty? Nobody's saying that Penny's not hot, or even that you are not allowed to say so, Leonard, but understand that she is manifesting insecurity about whether that's all you see in her, and it doesn't help if you keep going on about how hot she is and how you'll never get anyone as hot and so forth ad bloody nauseam. I know you love her for other reasons, Leonard. I believe those other reasons are more important. Make sure you put them front and centre when you are praising your wife, more often. It would help to remind her that she has lots to offer besides her youth and beauty, and I suspect it would ease her transition into adulthood to know-really know- that you value the things she'll never lose.

  20. Darlin', Little Lady or Vixen would all make me happy, but Little Lady and Vixen both have precedence. But really none of the couples really use terms of endearment regularly and I just don't see Shamy doing it regularly either. But the sweetness if he ever just threw in Darlin' once, harkening back to his epiphany and that song would kill me. Amy likes to pull out Cuddles upon occasion, maybe one day he surprises her by coming back with Darlin' just as they, say, head out the door to go somewhere and we get to see smitten, grinning Amy follow him to the stairs. Sigh...I can dream!

  23. Late to this Rodeo (Tapatalk keeps turning off my notifications! [emoji58]). This 5Miss is what further captured me. This moment when she is all by herself, takes us into her heart of hearts. She unquestionably Loves (capital L) him deeply-probably more than she (even in that moment) realizes. This, to me is what TBBT is all about (sorry to all otherwise focused fans and shippers): the story of a bullied, neglected nerd and a beautiful, somewhat world wise yet similarly damaged girl. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk On an unrelated topic, something is telling me that we Penny & Leonard fans should prepare for a change of focus in the upcoming few tapings. I am betting the results of the visit(s) to Dr Gallo are going to be expanded on. We may be facing some newlywed relationship angst.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  24. ^^^ If you're talking about Kaley's outfit she wore to the SAG awards, that is not the sort of wardrobe Penny Hofstadter wears. She is a now a professional married woman. I think what she has been wearing this season is completely appropriate and, IMO, extremely becoming. There is no need for a woman of her age and relationship status to dress as 22 year old Penny did in the earlier seasons. To me her look is realistic and she is no less beautiful or attractive.

  26. this is one of my favorite early Amy scenes... aside from Sheldon seeming genuinely concerned for a split second which is adorable, Amy's defeated shrug body language and the way she says "Armin-- damnit!" is so funny... mayim delivered that line so well the thing I love about this kiss is that Amy didn't remember what happened... Sheldon could have easily omitted the kiss from his "what happened last night?" story, but he did tell her "you kissed me".... almost like he was proud of it

  28. I think you're being a little bit unfair with Leonard's dad because we haven't heard his side of the story. Based on what we actually know, we can tell that Beverly is a pretty despicable character, and that Leonard's dad borrowed the hugging machine because of how cold Beverly was with him. The other thing that we know is that Beverly has been responsible for her own orgasms since 1992 (I believe that was the year I might be wrong). I don't know if she meant to to say that her husband (Leonard's dad) was bad in the sack or that she didn't have coitus with him since 1992, and she had to take matters into her own hands. I don't think Leonard would compare himself to his dad because their situations seem to be different. The Leonard character has always been seen to be noble. For me the kiss was an OOC invention by TPTB to parallel the situation to Shamy's breakup on 8.24. It is not Leonard's responsibility to make Penny grow up, and if he's in love with his wife I see nothing wrong with him telling her over and over. I'm in my 50's and have been married to my wife for more than 24 years. I think she's beautiful and I tell her every chance I get. Why? Because she's beautiful to me. Yes, I'll grant you that when I tell her that I mean it to be that she's beautiful inside and out. Could it be that Leonard means that? I don't know. The show can be a little bit shallow sometimes.

  29. That's why Amy and Bernadette's question during that first girls night was so devastating. I don't think she had connected it all, until they asked that question, and it caught her short. And, of course, her reaction later that season when she found out about Priya, spoke volumes.

  32. I think I would almost prefer it (though the show likely won't do this) if we actually meet the brother and it either turns out that Beverley is equally distant with both of them or that the brother actually envies Leonard and thinks HE is the favourite. Bonus points if the brother really admires Leonard, but every overture from him is met with wariness and mistrust from Leonard because of his issues.

  34. ^^^^^ It bothers me too that Leonard will continually cite Penny's beauty. But maybe he does it because he feels that it is what she wants to hear and it's safe for him to do that. In the past, anytime Leonard brought up anything to do with her education (which Penny mistakenly took as a dig at her intellect) the pamphlets for Pasadena Community College or her paper on Slavery ('Slavery is Bad') it didn't work out so very well for him. I really love his unguarded moment when he was speaking to Raj in The Spaghetti Catalyst --'Yes you will. And she'll be beautiful, and kind and sexy and funny and everything you ever wanted in a woman' -- as his list of Penny attributes.

  35. I know I'm going to ruffle a few feathers but at this point, I really don't give a shit. Hang on to your hats cuz here it comes.... Some of you guys need to get a fucking grip and stop being so damn paranoid!!! Amy was still a virgin when she slept with Sheldon. The writers made it a point in several instances to state this! They are not going to be able to back track on that vital piece of information and have even the casualist of viewers be ok with it. It's also been pointed out on several occasions that Amy isn't a very good lier herself because she's quickly caught doing so. How the hell do you know?? We haven't even seen the episodes yet!! A lot of things can play out differently on screen than what we read from someone else's point of view.

  37. Stage vs. Screen: A Comparison of Acting Techniques What do Julie Andrews, James Earl Jones, and Jim Parsons have in common? Besides names that start with J, these stars are among the many actors and actresses that enjoy successful careers both on stage and on screen. Although film acting differs from stage acting, practice can equip an actor to excel at both! Keep reading to explore the three main ways that film and stage acting differ, then learn a few ways to hone your skills in both areas!I I wanted to share this link, is not about Jim per se though, but is nice to see acting teachers have him as an example of a good performer. Is good too, for those who enjoy reading about acting as a form of art. I love this article because when you read it, you see what an accomplished actor jim is. He is a very complete, talented actor. I will never get tired of noting that. And when i occasionally stumble into the "he is just playing himself!" Comment i feel so angry... Poor haters, they know nothing.

  38. Of course Shamy's first kiss is the 421 drunk kiss. Everything in the latter half of that episode was to prepare for that kiss. Bernie's "Sheldon and Amy sitting on the tree", Penny's "Sheldon have you kissed anyone before" question. They even let Sheldon say it himself that he had never kissed anyone before. (So apparently in his mind, that "kiss" with Beverly does not count) Sheldon kind of reacted to that kiss. He closed his eyes and puckered his lips before her lips touched his. So other than Amy not remembering it (but Sheldon told her about it later), which I find extremely romantic, that is like the official definition of first kiss. That reset was just a way to slow things down. And it didn't really work well, did it. Because not very long after that, he made her his girlfriend.:) Also in CBS's The Science of Love video which includes important moments of the Shamy relationship, CBS clearly counts the 421 kiss as their first kiss.

  42. But, we've already been given the implication that this is not the case. During Leonard's meltdown as he was giving Sheldon his introduction for his Chancellor's Award in The Pants Alternative: 'First of all, the projects were totally different. I was showing that classical music nurtures lima beans and makes them grow, but my mother didn't hear me. If you'd like to look at the relationship between nurturing and growth, I'd like to point out that my brother is eight inches taller than me.' Of course, this is just MO, but to me, it seems like Bev has chosen her favorite. And because he purposely linked nurturing with height, I get the feeling it's not just a skewed perception on Leonard's part.

I forgot how excited Sheldon was at the beginning of the episode when he thanked Amy "the dowey eyed moon calf" for watching Raiders with him. And her remark that watching the movie wasnt what she had in mind when he told her she was gonna lose her virginity at his apartment, and his response to that by saying he chose his words wrong and shouldve told Amy she was gonna have her world rocked on his couch--classic!!

  47. Metro Detroit Native And Co-Creator Of “The Big Bang Theory” Will Be Honored With Arts Achievement Award Did you know that one of the co-creators of the hit TV series “The Big Bang Theory” is from metro Detroit and went to Wayne State University, as well as Cranbrook? Bill Prady has had an accomplished career. Prady began working in entertainment at Jim Henson Productions, and co-wrote The Muppets Celebrate Jim Henson, for which he received an Emmy nomination and a WGA award. He also was a co-producer and writer for the series Dream On on HBO and has sitcom credits including The Cosby Show and Married with Children. He served as producer and consulting producer on the NBC series Caroline in the City and served as co-executive producer on the ABC series Dharma and Greg. At present he is writing and co-executive producing The Big Bang Theory, which he co-created. “We are thrilled to be able to honor Bill Prady with this award,” said Matthew Seeger, dean of the College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts. “He has captured the narrative of contemporary culture and we like to believe some of that comes from his time at Wayne State. It is important that our students and the community at large see high-profile achievers like Bill. His accomplishments serve as a model for others.” The big bash that is Wayne State’s Arts Achievement Awards event will take place March 23 in the ballroom of the university’s recently renovated Student Center Building. The event is free and open to the public. http://www.dailydetroit.com/2016/02/01/creator-of-big-bang-theory-went-to-wayne-state-will-be-honored-with-arts-achievement-award/

  48. I think it's pretty clear, by how terrified she was, just before she and Sheldon had sex, that Amy was still a virgin. If she'd already lost her virginity, she wouldn't have been so frightened. Also, I don't think she could've resisted the temptation, to tell Penny and/or Bernadette. ETA: I think, if she had slept with someone, while they were broken up, she'd have told him, when he asked her, on the way to the aquarium. She could tell how important the question he asked her was to him, and she would know the consequences to their relationship, if he later found out she'd lied to him about it.
