    But there would of been no seasons 4-6 without seasons 1-3. JMO but if your like Lenny shipper you are going like 1-3 better if your a Shamy shipper 4-6 for obvious reasons. I think Amy and Bernadette brought a new dynamic to the show. A great one? I don't think your going to get a consensus on that. Certainly a different one. 4 and 5 IMO weren't better. Season 6 IMO was probably the best of the first and probably will end being where the show peaked. from that point the show has gone down hill. The last two seasons have been like skydiving without a parachute. I like Bert.But honestly do we need to see that many pictures of Bert? Now I wouldn't mind seeing more pictures of Rebecca.

    I agree with almost anything on your post, except that I still hope they will do something with Penny's career this time, if not in this season then in season 11. This can be a catalyst that will make her start looking for a new job. However, I admit I wouldn't be surprise if they leave it aside again.

    There does seem to be a growing view that there has been a drop off the back half of this season much like the back half of Season 9. Still think the contract situation might have played a big role in this season's slow down/pacing during the back half (well I hope it's mainly that). Maybe we are just seeing the usual writers are perhaps scared (wary might be a better word than scared) to move the pace at times like they have in the past? They have always been conservative with a lot of progress and character evolution on the show. Seems like they could have two options, introduce some drama to create a spark again (but that would stall and slowdown some progress) or instead press ahead with growth and the next developments of the character's lives. I would much prefer the latter than the former. For example the Shamy engagement could have happened some time ago and who knows when that will actually happen? There is an assumption it might happen in one of these two remaining taping's but it could drag on until Season 11. A multi-episode arc about Penny's career would have been really interesting, instead they have floated the idea again about career change without resolution and kicked it into the long grass like they did after Big Bear last season. The Raj storyline hasn't really captivated me yet and I was expecting perhaps more progress so far in the evolution of his character but it looks to be a slow project. You know which storyline I can't fault at all with the pacing and IMO has been pretty good all season long? The ongoing Howardette/baby Halley storyline. I think they just need to pick up the pace, they have a ridiculously talented bunch of writers that can write stories based on the next chapters of some of our favorite character's lives. They shouldn't be afraid to quicken the pace, they might actually benefit from it.

    Glad they got Footprints back on, I guess they could have just recorded the jingle and played it before their show but it's better if they are on and it provides some more character interactions. Still wondering why they are doing a look back show, I'm certain it will be explained in the dialogue. At least it is something to look forward to in this one, because I know the 'leave the room stuff' is going to annoy the fuck out of me.

    Sorry Season 8-10 sucks and is generally painfully unfunny, with a few exceptions. First three seasons still far supeior. The storytelling is far more original and unique. Stale Season 3 is still far funny then today's show. But that is just my opinion. I mean I did not expect the show to maintain it's original format, beyond Season 4. But the show has become way too clichied and tropey for my liking. IT lacks originality these days, and alot of the original comedy is gone. I do agree the topics of today's BBT. Relationships, and Babies. Never thought was conceivable ten odd years ago.

    I always have a soft spot for the early seasons of a show. First of all, there's the nostalgia factor. I love remembering how we as an audience got to know and love these characters. That's always special. And apart from Leonard and Penny, I just used to enjoy Sheldon a lot more. I loved watching him interact with everyone simply because his social cluelessness softened his mean comments. That's what made it funny. So while I completely understand that people love his growth especially in terms of his relationship with Amy, I just don't find him very entertaining anymore. And the less clueless he gets, the more mean and thus less acceptable his comments are. JMO. I'm certainly not saying that characters shouldn't evolve, but sometimes they evolve in a way that puts me off. And I'm not just talking about Sheldon. I've stated on here countless times how much I miss Penny's kindness of the early seasons. I also miss the "Us against the world" vibe I'd always gotten from Lenny. My favourite thing about the show right now is the friendship between the girls, which I'd love to see more of. I am really looking forward to the ep about Penny's job, though. That sounds like a good one for Lenny.

    I think part of the issues is that TBBT is written for casual viewers who can skip an episode or two and won't be confused when they check out the next episode. So changes are a lot slower to happen and storylines aren't written as tightly as certain dramas which are highly serialised now and if you miss one episode you won't know what's going on. TBBT is also not written for the type of fan who's seen every episode a dozen times and memorized every storyline. So they're playing fast and lose with continuity at times as long as it gets them another laugh for whatever plot of the week they have. Additionally, the show is finishing S10 now and at some point you just reach a critical mass where you've exhausted most possible plot variations and stories start to be similar to other episodes that came before, just with [plot twist y] this time around. Then that particular plot variation simply becomes a matter of continuity and character progress and sometimes a running gag. Though I'm not too bothered with that I can see how sometimes it gets a "not this again!" reaction. Different strokes etc etc... Anyway, yes, I agree that the writers should be a bit more brave now. Unless some dramatic change happens I think it's clear that S11/12 are the last ones. So why not go wild and finally work on all those possible storylines that have been hinted at in episodes and interviews for years now with Penny's job issue being Exhibit A here. They've been beating around the bush with that for a while now and last time the idea was that it would have been better for Penny to work at the same company as Bernie - but that was only used at the beginning of the season. So we either get some more girls at work plots out of it now that Bernie is back to work (which I would love because yay girls plot!) or they better come up with a new job for Penny already.

    It is pretty odd that we never get any bed scenes with Lenny anymore, as this season we have gotten several bed scenes from both Shamy and Howardette but no Lenny. (I'm so sorry @Tensor, I wrote this in the wrong thread,feel free to move it if you want. )

    Rough patch or not there communication or lack of has been mentioned more than once. I know there a story coming up with Penny and her job but there really has not been a lot going on else with them. Even with this Thursday episode Shamy has FWF. There never seems to be a little story like that for them. when's the last time they had a bed scene reminiscent of season 3. Some say that Lenny has only sex in common but you don't even get the bed scenes anymore.

    Those are really lovely photos! I just love Raj and Howard who helped shamy to meet each other being the official fwf band, one of oldest and sweetest shamy projects. I can't get enough of staring at these two adorable happy smiles as they are in fwf mode!

    Haha, please be fair. Lenny had some intimate scenes as dancing and kissing (and even though imaginary, the filthy dungeon scene). The bedroom was possibly closed for a longer renovation and Sheldon's spot was a substitute. Also I wouldn’t compare the bedtime of Shamy with the heated occurrences of Leonard and Penny.

    I think season 8, apart from a few funny moments here and there, was totally forgettable. IMO, the entire season 9 was crap too, the second half of season 9 even worse than the first(i found the shamy break up to be very tiresome and dull, but it was still better than the latter half of s9). Season 10 gained momentum and good episodes included, but they are back to not so good stuff in the second half. I don't find the anything awards worthy about the writing anymore, and i think they are slowly running out of ideas. I hope they recover soon. I don't even need them working on big projects all the time. It was the random funny discussions they had and the fun geeky little things they did everyday, that I love the most. I don't see anything wrong with the guys playing games together as their "chief leisure activity" tbh . I don't think growing up means you have to give up the things you love. Amy and Bernadette still do things they love - their hobbies including girls' night, so why should the guys not enjoy the things they did together ?Sounds a bit hypocritical. They can be mature and socialized but still enjoy what they always did. The writers don't care about being realistic when it comes to Bernie's pregnancy and Raj's financial situation, but the guys giving up "Comic Con" is where they decide to be "realistic" ? yeah ok. Years ago, I thought the episode where Sheldon and Howard made a high stakes bet about identifying the species of a cricket was quite original. . I am all for weddings, babies, engagement rings and I have no doubt , plots about pre-school will follow, but there is nothing wrong with having more of other things as well. BTW I also don't quite see the logic of Sheldon being "horrified" at being single (as long as he was content with his life). I don't see why someone would be "horrified" at being single on principle, if it was their choice. Character development can occur through many different things-work, friends, having a child etc etc, not just a romantic relationship

    And the week before was a rehash of 8.13, The Anxiety Optimization. Why bother writing new plots, when you can change a few thing around and use the same plot device.

    Totally with you on this! About the bold part, I think plotlines development slow pace is bad to casual viewers as there are some many tv shows for be seen and some might give up and looking foward to see others. Those who are fans but have not been much satisfied lately might give up for plotline development slow pace and do same than the casual viewers. Although many viewers would not give up of watching for the slow pace, everyone might benefit from quick pace. Most of fans have followed these characters since season 1 and they surely look foward to seeing the characters growing and doing new things than same plotlines over and over. Writers must loose the fear of risk. The fans would thank them very much!

    I view seasons 1-3 and 6-10 as sort of different shows. I think the dynamics has changed but to me it is a generally positive, I wouldn't like it if the characters got stale, never changing. In fact I have issues with the writers keeping Lenny stale for about a year now, I find it very unnatural. My favorite seasons are 5 and 6, I like 7 too but a little bit less, than 4. I also like "the first series" and there are some awesome episode there but I don't like watching too much of it because I feel like something is missing. Not just Amy and Bernadette per se but the dynamics that dominated seasons 5 to 7. Season 8 was the worst to me, I have some specific episodes I like there. The first half of 9 I thought was better but the second was not very good, IMO. The first half of season 10 I thought they were getting better but the second half up until now is a big dissapointment to me. 8 to 10 are still "the second show" to me but they are different than 4-7, they are much more "The Sheldon Show" and I don't dislike him but IMO it is way too much. I hope they will shake things up (not in a bad angsty way!) and go back to bringing some good stuff for the next 2 seasons so it will be remembered with grace, as that funny, original and touching at times show, and not a that tired old show that used it's formulas and breakout character to try to extort some more money until everybody had enough.

    I don't think anyone is reputing that the show would of survived with it's original format. More the fact the original comedy has been replaced. By a more clichied style of story telling. IMO I Think it got Stale around Season 4. The First Two seasons IMO are still the best years from the show. Because they still hold up in it's uniqueness. But I do understand the format got stale from Season 4 onwards. Season 6 was my fav season. But to be quite honest I still watch Adhesive Duck, Bath Item, Peanut Reaction, Stair Case Implementation, Precious Fragmentation e.t.c. More then any episode post Season 4. But that is just my opinion. To bring it back to Season Ten. Alot of particularly the second half. Has degenerated into repeated cannon. Alot of the episodes your seeing recently are rehash of past episodes. Done in a different way.

    Yeah same here. I actually feel those early seasons are fun but it gets better in season 4. In fact the past 2 years when I marathon, I don't watch the early ones as much anymore. I find them a bit boring now compared to the best period of the show in my eyes season 4-6. I feel Amy and Bernadette brought a great dynamic to the show, honestly the show wouldn't have survived with the season 1-3 format and I might have gotten bored.

    That's right, I had forgotten that one. That episode has something for everybody. I loved also when Sheldon asks her: "Headache?" and Penny answers: "Getting one".

    As Sheldon knocks his way into Penny's apartment and he finally gets to the bathroom door and she yells sat him "don't you dare knock" and he opens the door and she is laying there covered by the shower curtain, he simply says "hello". It is one on my favorite episodes.

    I have recently rewatched season 1-3 and undoubtely these are great seasons. However imo seasons 4-7 are overall superior comedy speaking as the Amy and Bernie gave a better dynamic to the show. Season 8 was the one I less liked. I liked much half of season 9 and the other half was a bit weak. Same feelings about season 10 as the second half could have been much better and I dont believe much last remaining tapings would be overrall speaking outstanding episodes as writers might keep the best plotlines for the first half of season 11. Let's see what future holds to our favourite gang.

    It would be so like this show to float an idea in Season 9 and then resolve it in Season 11 so two years later. Maybe in these two final taping's her career does get resolved in some way? I'm not expecting it though.

    One of the things that makes me want to see them there is my curiousity about the way it looks now. Maybe TPTB couldn't figure out how they want it decorated. I want to see a room that both Leonard and Penny feel comfortable with.

    It seems to me, some of Sheldon's agreements have been attached on the fridge.

    Indeed. I know I've said it already, but that episode to me is genius. Also when Penny asks Sheldon not to be himself so much and he tells her (oh so uncomfortably) "there, there" it is, IMO, comedic genius. Indeed it is. For each one of us the only thing that matters is if the show makes us laugh or not. I consider earlier seasons far superior to seasons 8 through 10 as I don't laugh nearly as much, and sometimes not at all, lately. I don't think anybody would expect the show to stay the same for 10 years, but I would have hoped that it would have maintained similar levels of overall quality, which, IMO, since around the second 1/2 of S7 up until now, it hasn't.

    But last weeks episodes main plotline was the same as Season 3 pants alternative. I mean you substitute liquor and cold medicine and throw in what did Sheldon do and you kind of got the same result. Sheldon certainly didn't age in last weeks.

    Now with the show renewed for two more seasons, I fear that season 11 could be just like season 8 with not much going on. I'm guessing the writers wants to save really big moments to the last season.

    The fwf sneak peek for next episode is hilarious! The energetic Sheldon's tone before they started to tap cracked me up as it was so different than he and Amy calm tone as they spoke at camera, LOL! And the way they look at the camera? Priceless! Love Footprints' s music! It looks like a Beach Boys song or something from 60's . Really nice!

    TPTB are going to want to let everyone know that the whole cast is fully on board for the next two seasons. My guess is that we may hear something at the CBS "upfronts" presentation on May 17th in NYC.

    Happy Birthday April! With Mayim not signed on for a new contract yet I am not expecting an engagement until next season hoping she returns with a satisfying chunk of change in her pocket. They have until end of July to sign her according to Vonmar. Unless they go for one hell of a questionable cliff hanger...
