    This is in the episode, so you will find out. It's one of many little details that I remember but left out of the TR. Shamy working together plays out so very differently than Sheldon and Raj. You'll all have to form your own opinions about the dialog. The thing that I enjoyed about the Shamy storyline was the way that Amy pushed back against Sheldon's attempts to dominate their working relationship, and the fact that it turned out to be just what he (and she) needed most to be successful. I think it ends up showing once again how well-suited those two are for one another. I think most Shamy fans will enjoy this episode. With the way that they kind of argue and Sheldon makes rude remarks, I suspect a lot of non-Shamy fans might think we're all nuts for enjoying it though, lol.

    They tried Amy’s ultra-friendly collaboration plan first, and when that yielded poor results, they were both frustrated. Sheldon then aimed some of his frustration at Amy, which shouldn’t really come as much of a surprise to anyone. He’s rude in the way that you would probably expect from his character. It’s possible that some won’t like their argument, but I was fine with it. Season 10 Amy didn’t just sit there and take it, she got to have an equal voice, and the back-and-forth nature of their little spat is why I chose to describe it as snark. It was also interrupted a few times by their various work-related epiphanies, and it didn’t take long for them to figure out that riling each other up was actually the thing that was helping them progress.

    I really like all characters. Sometimes I wish they were "real" so we could all hang out. It is rare that I feel that way about characters in a sitcom, so hey, I’m not only a desperate believer of Cornfield-Penny, I guess.

    To be fair, that line was actually not the most objectionable part of the Lenny plot in that episode - at least to me. The Central Casting Nerds objectifying Penny, and Leonard crowing over how he landed her (with an obviously miserable and uncomfortable Penny sitting behind him) is MY least favourite bit.

    Thank you - it sounds like I'm going to enjoy this too - I had forgotten about the "Sheldon wiggle walk " haha !! This is going to be gold, plus very revealing that , that is what Sheldon thinks of when he describes using your sexuality !!!! Ha - we all knew that all along though didn't we lol !

    Well to be clear, Sheldon is mean during this little part. It’s been difficult to explain or describe why I enjoyed their argument despite that. I think everyone will just have to judge this aspect for themselves. Regardless, the end result of them successfully working together is pretty sweet, and I think the tag showed they were in a great place. I liked their set of final rules, and thought it was just right for them I was really hoping for that going into the filming of the tag scene, but it'll have to remain in the realm of fanfic writers for now. Sheldon's Amy impression should tide everyone over. It still makes me smile to think that that's what it looks like to him when she walks, lol.

    I agree that the Raj's financial problems make no sense whatsoever. They could have, if he were a Ph.D. student which had counted on his parents' money to live beyond his means, but not at this point in his career. However, I can see plenty of reasons why he isn't in a relationship, and they rely on things happened well before the character assassination started. Raj is a spoiled, insecure, needy guy, he is the character who has less evolved since the show started, I might say that he is the same person (minus not being able to talk to women) he was when the show started.

    It's not the episode itself that bothers me. It's a culmination of everything since last season. This episode is just a drop in a bucket. With the way they've been writing Leonard and Penny, I feel like I'm in a restaurant and they keep serving me appetizers (and awful ones, too) even though I keep asking for the main course. I don't need Leonard and Penny to have the same interests and I don't need them to be twins because that'd bore me to death, but I wanna see what makes their relationship tick. And they're just not showing me that.

    Yup, it's in there. It's one of a number of things I left out because my TR was long and I didn't want to spoil all the fun little things anyway.

    These Shamy pictures remind me of "The Eye of the Tiger" scene between Sheldon and Raj when Raj worked with FOR Sheldon. Hope this episode is funny and has some actual clever hysterical dialogues
  13. 10 points
    Ha !! Sounds very them !! I was a wee bit worried I have to admit that it would be over the top meanness - but mutual snark that helps progress and that's only only reason for it is fine !! Do you get to see them be nice to each other again after or cute without any snark ?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Kind of reminds me a little of "The Anxiety Optimization" except this time it's snark that gets the juices flowing.

    Sheldon: "Yeah, there’s Fisherman’s Wharf and Alcatraz and cable cars. We’re gonna have so much fun". yeah! A really great wedding present where the GTB includes himself.

    Here is how I see it, Leonard probably accumulated a lot of student loan debt during his undergraduate and graduate years. I bet Beverly made him pay his own way just to see how he did so she could put his results in her book. So with huge student loans, living in California and other bills, I could see him not having a lot of money, but him squirreling away a few thousand for emergencies is very IC for him. Penny was able to live by her waitress job, Leonard's help and her credit cards which she ran up and now has a lot of debt. If she has a 'guy', like she says, then he probably put a plan together for her that has a credit card pay off schedule plus involves investing part of her salary. Penny probably has more money to spend but she probably doesn't see most of her salary because it goes to pay her debt, her investments, and to pay her and Leonard's shared bills, so the money he has squirreled away just may interest her. Amy is definitely frugal and Sheldon is too, except for his toys, let's face it, what they wear doesn't cost much and they don't seem to spend much on dates. Howard and Bernadette are the well off members of the group, she makes 'buttloads' of money, Howard makes probably almost as much as the other guys and they got a free house from Howard's mother. So Howard freaking out about the kid makes no sense. Raj is a spoiled rich kid who has never lived within his means. His apartment, car and expenses are way too costly for what he makes. So now living on his own salary is difficult for him and he needs to cut expenses so that is why he moved. anyway that is how I see them financially.

    Really, is this addressed in the episode? Cool! I thought it was an inside joke made by the scientific consultant, LOL! I love every word you just wrote! And...I know non shippers might think we are crazy, but I can't really wait for the episode to air!

    In terms of consistency they handle some characters better than others. Sheldon for instance started out needing a room mate to afford the rent but that was early S1 and the idea was still that the guys would be post grads or whatever with not that much money. Later on they went with the "Sheldon has piles of money/uncashed checks, doesn't really care about money and is generous towards his friends" angle - and they kept that over the years. Bernadette went from being a doctorate who had to work at the cheesecake factory to being hired by a company that's paying her a ton of money. So she's doing fine and nothing has ever changed that. We don't really know much about Amy's income but it seems like she doesn't really spend much money for herself and is also able to buy generous gifts - so it stands to reason she's doing fine with her finances Then we have Leonard who for some reason doesn't seem as well off as Sheldon even though it would make sense. Does he make so much less than Sheldon?? Idgi. At some point they offered the explanation that he is still paying off student loans which is fair enough, I guess (and don't tell me Beverly would have paid for that - we all know her lol). With Howard the situation is kinda weird cause you'd think a guy with his job would make a decent amount of money but then again he's also an irresponsible spender buying all sorts of over priced bullshit - so I guess the latter might be the bigger problem here. His woes about how he doesn't earn enough money are still weirdly out of place. I can buy him freaking out when he heard the (factually wrong, but still) number of needing $1million to raise a child in LA but by now he's had enough time for a fact check and going over his and Bernie's finances to see that it's not that terrible. Similarly Raj is a big spender because he's Indian Richie Rich and never had to care about finances. I can easily buy that he went totally overboard with that but going to completely broke and a pile of debts immediately after his daddy stopped paying the bills is a pretty hard crash when he should be doing just fine with his income. Well, here's hope he gets his shit together! Last but not least Penny: With her being a poor waitress/aspiring actress for the longest time I can believe that the accumulated quite a bit of debts over the years as we've seen her struggle with her finances plenty of times. Then she gets a job that pays her twice as much as Leonard (Hey, show, how much does he make again??) and has "a guy" and yet she still thinks those 6k savings he hid from her are a big deal she could do so much with? What!??? If we're going with what Leonard would realistically make at CalTech by now and double that she makes 6k in like two weeks. What does she need the 20 bucks from Leonard's grandma for???

    I really enjoyed the very very rare Sheldon and Bernadette pairing for scenes in last season's episode 9.22 The Fermentation Bifurcation. Reviews at the time in regards to the Sheldon/Bernadette scenes said how refreshing it was and really praised those scenes. I wish they explored a bit more some different pairings for episodes.

    Thanks @RJ1013 for the details, I can´t wait to watch it. This season it will be remembered as one of the Shamy´s gold seasons! and if we are lucky, could finale it with the (very) expected proposal!! Cheers for season 10! It´s a good time for be a Shamy fan!

    I can only go off the TR but I suspect a lot of fans (including some Shamy ones) will let perhaps some comments between them slide because it has a scientific merit to it. Clearly getting a little riled up let the creative juices flow lol. If there was nothing gained from any barbs or snark in this example then I suspect people would think very differently about it. That's pretty much common sense. So looking forward to this one, hoping that it perhaps might bring the show back up from the dip it has had recently in the latter part of this season imo. Certainly something different and an idea that a lot of fans have been calling for some time.

    Jim has told the story of his MFA program at The University of San Diego. It was a 2-year full tuition scholarship program. But he had to get his mom to co-sign for what he called "living loans" to cover all of his other expenses. He said that landing TBBT, 5 years after graduating, is what finally paid them off.

    That was never stated. It was an interpretation, that really had no basis. My question was always if it was originally for Amy, why were there three tickets? And if Sheldon bought himself an extra ticket, why didn't he just buy another ticket for Amy? No, this was another example of forcing Sheldon into Lenny's relationship.

    Raj has never really made sense. Charecter wise over the shows run he is like 5% scientist, 10% Richie Rich, maybe 5% caring friend, 5% ambiguous metro sexual and 75% self centered douche The Charecter has never been given any real growth or lasting change and at this point i think he is beyond redemption. It would take to much story and screentime and honestly after 10 years of his behavior does anybody care anymore, i can truthfully say I dont and I would be fine with it if he moves back to India, I mean come on shouldnt his visa be up by now?

    Can be more cute these two little pies? *sigh* I one of the promo pics they are both smiling to each other at the sofa, made my heart melt!!! Can't wait to see the episode, this season is the best or what? YAY!!!!!

    Same here. The show needs to get these clever hysterical dialogues again, it is only imo a question of a bit more of science updates to the plotlines and mixing them with the characters's daily lives. That's why I am looking foward so much to next episode. Brilliant idea of a shamy work collaboration.

    Love the new promo pics! The one of Amy blowing her nose looks hilarious! It's very cute how they turned 4B into their workspace with all the whiteboards. Can't wait for this episode!

    Oh you have made me even more excited about this episode! They might think we are nuts but it happens because they dont know how well we are into shamy goodness and into their relationship chemestry. They dont know what they are missing for be non shippers, hehe! You know, I dont mind at all as shamies who attended tapings leaving some litle things out of tr. Usually when they do that, these are wonferful shamy things! Thanks so much for your input on this and for be a true tbbt fan. You write so beautiful about the characters as you put your insightful pov about each plotline detail. You rock, RJ! <3

    I've always wanted to see a scene of Penny shuffling out of the bedroom hall way, wearing flannel pajamas, a fuzzy robe and slippers, her hair all messed up and mumbling 'Coffee' while still half asleep. Leonard in the kitchen smiling at her, then saying 'morning beautiful', while holding out a cup of coffee for her. What would then happen is she would first take a long sip of the coffee and then lean over to kiss his cheek, saying either 'l love you so much' or 'You are the best husband ever', before continuing to drink her coffee. That is how I picture them in my 'Lenny Shipping' mind.

    IMO, they should hire some die-hard fans for proofreading the scripts in advance, because the inconsistency problems are getting more and more ridiculous and obvious, to the point even the casual audiences noticed some of them, and they thought those contradictory plots were stupid, and they are NOT happy. Believe me.

    Wake me up when Leonard and Penny have a proper, nice storyline. Couldn't care less about Penny and yet another third person in her and Leonard's marriage.

    I would like to know their financial status for sure, Amy for example is still a great mystery to me. Super frugal, or does her family actually have some wealth? It's obvious we care about details like that lol this is a fansite we want to know everything about their lives and discuss everything lol. Most of the viewership I suspect aren't too bothered about continuity things like the financial status of characters, they just want a laugh after a hard days work for example.

    Another episode contains Sheldon and Bernadette scenes was 811, The Clean Room Infiltration, their scenes were so funny, and I remember at that time, I've read some reviews saying this was the first time they noticed the height difference between Sheldon and Bernadette, so you can see how rare their scenes were.

    Funny you mention that episode when Amy and Howard were singing together, I LOVE that episode(703), after watching that episode, I hoped that we would see more of the UNUSUAL pairing of the seven characters, like Amy and Howard, Leonard and Amy, Leonard and Bernadette, Sheldon and Bernadette, Penny and Howard, etc, etc. I thought that would be very funny and refreshing. But sadly, three years later, not that much unusual pairing episodes I can think of.

    I saw this on tumblr today—and now I'm just thinking about Amy singing this in her lab with Sheldon having a WTF face. We've talked about Amy being the "weird one" while Sheldon plays the "straight man" to shake things up, and now I want this to happen.
