    [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    My no.1 You will not find a better gift for a guy to give his neuroscientist girlfriend. The brain has a special status and place in their relationship as well so that further adds to how special a gift it was. All indications were that this was also a gift idea he came up with. We know in the past he is not a big fan of gift giving and he also usually consults his friends for advice. We didn't see that so I can choose to believe he came up with the idea and that also adds to the moment.

    [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    I'm the one who voted this scene as my favorite. I haven't watched it in a while and was inspired to watch it again after so many great observations here. The whole episode was a Lenny Gift Basket!! I still just love it! 2 episodes before we had Penny thinking of breaking up with Leonard because she missed the excitement of past relationships(apparently she forgot how they all ended badly.) I remember being so upset and really mad at Penny for being an ungrateful, spoiled little bitch and really wondering how this would work out. Then 2 episodes later Bernie suggests that it's not just about letting her boyfriend making her happy but that maybe she could make an effort too. It was an epiphany for Penny. A real "Oh yeah moment". "I could show some interest in his work" moment. The relationship turned the corner after the lab visits and 3 episodes later we had Penny's "I love you." I loved Leonard in his lab, in his comfort zone where he shines. I loved how happy and excited he was when Penny showed up and how he explained his work to her. I loved Penny's breathless "Sometimes I forget how smart you are". They are passionate and happy and funny and this is how I like my Lenny best. And as if this wasn't enough to keep me smiling all week, we also got treated to another memorable Lenny Halloween! Again, passionate, happy and funny. Twice in the Tardis!

    Well it's your opinion and you're entitled to it but I disagree, at the time season 8 was the worst but now season 10 is, now both seasons had Lenny moments in to like .However in S8 Lenny where in the background a lot and there engagement was ignored., but when they had scenes they where mostly nice and rarely had any arguments, also S8 was the last season Lenny had a meal together alone in the apartment. S10 though Lenny had nice scenes together but not as many as season 8, and they had scenes showing a lot more friction too and they argued a lot more as well, So for me it S8>S10.

    Shamy's "pilot " was that their relationship was of the mind. Going along with the quote from 4.1 "their" baby was going to be a test tube baby meaning no sex. Not only that Sheldon pointed out at Howdette's wedding he didn't understand the point of marriage because he didn't need anyone else because he found himself interesting on his own. ( I'm sure someone could find the quote). I understand most people on this thread are either Lenny or Shamy fans but JMO Penny having a baby is more canon than Amy.

    One of the things that made season eight worse for me, was simply the lack of intimacy. We got all excited five episodes in, because they were on the couch, under a blanket, although that didn't last long. We didn't get very many kisses in season 10, but at least there were more moments of touching between them.

    Well you can see @Tensor's publications... Penny's first ILY is an obvious one I would add. I think it was my top moment. Their goodbye when he went to the North Sea, Cat is alive kiss, reunions after his expeditions, "it means I wish you weren't going", dance party, he asks her out again (Recombination), second wedding speeches, buble wrap makeout, season 1 birthday kiss, her smile when she found out it didn't work with him and Leslie Winkle, "I'm sorry Alex hit on me" song and their conversation after that (damn it he is cute!), after he did what he googled during sex haha and more and more...that's just from the top of my head.

    There is all that and for me I enjoy the fantisy/science fiction/cultural/scientific/technology references and related guest stars. At times TBBT brings back memories of my own high school/university student days. Not to mention that Mayim Bialik's role in TBBT gives her a spring board for her on going promotion of STEM education.

    Well, lenny must have their smart and beautiful babies for closing the circle from pilot. Shamy somehow must have a baby before the end of the show for a similar quote in "their " pilot (s4e1 The Robotic Manipulation): Quotes from s4e1: Penny: Okay, well, what do you communicate about? Sheldon: Well, my work in physics, her work in neurobiology, and most recently, the possibility of our having a child together. Penny (spits out drink explosively. Howard types. Robot arm hands Penny a napkin): Thank you. Leonard: Wait a minute– a child? You never see this girl. You just e-mail and text and Twitter. Now you’re considering having a baby? Sheldon: Amy pointed out that between the two of us, our genetic material has the potential of producing the first in a line of intellectually superior, benign overlord

    Honestly I can not come up with a detailed bit of their initial conversation due all the options that live in my mind right now, hehe. But I can say I expect a very well writen shamy dialogue as we feel all their motivations for their potencial reactions for the situation they were living through. With a Amy's yes as everything would be settled between them as they talked. It would be opening the season with a golden key. I feel writers will give us that gift after what we had to watch about Ramona. She was only a bitter tease for keep things interisting for some portions of the audience. I believe we wont remember much about Ramona try to cross shamy's path even before Christmas hiatus. It is what I feel

    [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    Take me back to 2012 :(. Season 6 Lenny was the peak era for them. If they played that Lenny over and over. In a never ending continuous loop. I would be happy. It was also the season, we started to see more and more of Pennys insecurities. And point of view. So,refreshing after seeing only Leonard's first three seasons. Unfortunately these days it's repeated cannon. That was a recurring theme last season. Problem is unless Someone can go into a time machine. Back to end of 2012-2013. And slap Moloro in the face . Lenny get married, Shamy have sex or not. But yeah be kinda cool. If they do another lab scene. Recapture that spark.

    [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    That moment Penny truly realises that this man she has tried to find so many reasons to NOT be with is the one she WANTS to be with for one shocking reason - his intelligence. Happiness was not muscly buffoons or good looking idiots. It was a smart guy that made her smarter too. As mentioned above, Penny has grown smarter - and nerdier through Leonard ( and the others ) but she has constantly battled with this change. Loved the Proton funeral episode when she is fighting a losing battle against knowing Star Wars. Deep down, she was enjoying but on the surface is her battle to seem not to. This moment is another reminder of how much better life is for Lenny alone. Penny is so much more loving and Leonard so much more confident without the negative shit that gets in their heads from Sheldon, Wheaton, Howard and Raj that have interfered with Penny's conflicting emotions so often before and after this. Here, in the silence of the Lab, Penny is swept up in it all and submits to her true feelings. And Leonard is in control. Love it. The beginning of the best Lenny season - number 6.

    [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Another issue I have with another child on the show is simply I think it would be ridiculous to have two kids on the show that you will never see. Howardette can get away with it a bit because of the baby's cry being raspy like Howard's mother. How would you show a Lenny child is around and the parents are interacting with him or her when you won't see it? You cant repeat that voice gag. And surely because 4A is the main set, most things happen there and more time is dedicated there you will get more storyline dialogue and scenes referring to the baby that is never seen. You also can't suddenly have a real baby on set for one couple and not the other. I just think more babies is a bad idea right now, but if fans want it and the writers do it then fair enough.
  21. 3 points
    I wouldn't say the line is means it must happen or that its seen as some end game event. People do get married and they do have kids and presumably they will as well at some point either on the show or in some kind of flash forward scene at the end so we know what happened to all the characters. I actually think some flash forward scene with them sitting on a couch in their house watching their cute kids doing something sciencey would be a better homage to the line. Penny's career for me would be a better storyline for Season 11 than her getting knocked up. Another pregnancy storyline so soon will likely just repeat a lot of themes we saw with Bernadette's pregnancy, there is only so much you can write or portray about it.

    [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Personally, I don't really care about babies either way. I liked what they did with Bernie's pregnancy but I'm not particularly eager to get the other two knocked up. I wouldn't mind some family planning but that's about it. Similarly the whole discussion about whether or not one line or another decides about which couple deserves to get a baby is a bit weird to me cause if there's one thing that all the guys have in common on this show is that for some weird reason they all wanna make babies with their woman of choice. When Leonard met Penny he wants smart and beautiful babies (whether they are imaginary only time will tell) though the topic hasn't really come up that much between Lenny beyond a short "maybe one day" talk. When Howard is set up with Bernie he's eager to meet the mother of his future kids and it had been a plot point several times over the years that he really wants a family with her and now they actually do. When Sheldon chatted with Amy over the summer after meeting her he was so eager to have kids with her to the point of Penny having to be the voice of reason and talk him out of it. Sheldon is still super enthusiastic whenever the prospect comes up - right down to suggesting to get busy right then and there in her lab. lol And although Raj is not in a relationship right now he's been shown fantasising about having kids as well like when he met Claire. It's kinda hilarious to me that the guys are so baby crazy on this show!

    And imo it may be canon having babies for both, Amy and Penny. Regards the "non sex" for shamy, all couples envolved through the seasons. Lenny did, howardette did, shamy did. While to Penny having the smart and beautiful babies with Leonard , fact all of us believe it will happen soon or later, it implied Leonard won the enough confidence in himself as he realized he deserved to have Penny because he loves her and she loves him as he fought for her and nowdays we have them married. For shamy the beginning was a relationship of minds that have envolved for also be physical as Sheldon and Amy minds bonded more. So that baby they talked about be made in a petri dish, now has the option of be made through a physical sexual act. It is really what is most interisting about this show imo: we could discuss what is going to happen next for these caracters and not only to talk about another nerd joke or about most recent comic con as storyplots week after week. Surely I agree a bit of balance about stories is needed for next seasons but for me everything is possible for each caracter be happy as they are like everybody else as the show mirrors well the real world human interactions through these group of friends. Which is most important imo and one of reasons why this show got me since pilot. The competition about which couple is better, smarter or hotter dont matter to me. Never did, never will.

    Gah can we go back to S6. God it was so good. Some where along the line the writing staff (Moloro) forgot Lennys identity. I don't know since 6.24. Just gradually went downhill, and Lenny lost their bearings. Or the writers. These days they use Lenny to enhance that other couple, or get that Praying Mantis reference in their some how. I always wondered did they get engaged, then ultimately got married too soon? Are they even now ready for marriage? I'm not so sure. Too late now lol. Hopefully in s11. Five seasons later. We get more fun married life plots. I still love the idea, of them pursuing Luke Cage. Just any idea of them finding some common ground. More stuff like the Christmas tree sequence from Holiday Summnation be good. If they get rid of Pennys snarkiness too. And just have more isolated Lenny plots. With no Raj, Sheldon, or anyone else for that matter. Maybe with Sheldon gone for then summer. Lenny have had a great time in 4A. Maybe they went on a road trip. Of course their would have to be a time jump. But any reference to Lenny enjoying being married, would suffice in the meantime.

    I think it would be nice if they made an episode where they think of what their children might be like and we see that play, exaggerated of course, and then we see flashwards to their reality. Sheldon could imagine his son as this benign overlord who has everybody serve him and cater to every whim he has, when in reality he is an incredible genious but, of course, a person with his faults who is not the overlord to anyone and does not try to control anyone (which would be an improvement ovet Sheldon...). The girls could scare Penny suggeeting she might have a party girl daughter and Penny imagines her going to a party minimally dressed with horney dusbags not caring about what her mother has to say when in reality she is going to is a Star Wars marathon with her friends which she considers a crazy party, wearing a T-shirt with some science related print and a hoodie. I think flashforwards would be nice, people are invested in these characters so IMO it would be nice if they give us a glance at what will come out of them (pun unintended) and it could be done in a funny way.

    Thank you to those who welcomed me.. I appreciate it so much. So excited for the taping report next week. I also think that Amy will say yes, not immediately though, because they still have to discuss the spur of the moment proposal first. I really have high expectations for the next two seasons for shamy. I want to see shamy's wedding, i want to see amy pregnant and what i am most excited about, I want to see them how they will raise their children. The last one might need another season but according to some interviews of their big bosses, it is possible. I also want to see them move to their own house in a suburb to have their own family but I have no idea if it is possible for a sitcom to change their setting. Is it? Maybe, what i really want is shamy in their own show lol

    Leonard and Sheldon meet Penny....Sheldon was there as well when they met. Sheldon is a HUGE audience draw as well as Penny and Leonard, and has been ever since the pilot episode. This was never just a Leonard and Penny show in my opinion. The two socially inept roommates meet the girl across the hall. That is the premise of the show....

    Penny and Leonard

    Some time ago, when the Penny-character was failing as an actress but before Bernadette got her the drug-rep job, I wrote on here suggesting they cast the character as giving acting one more try. She would audition & not get the part - but her attractiveness & quick-wit , quick confident off-the-cuff humor, would get her noticed & she would be hired at a starvation-wage as a writer's-assistant, a gofer of sorts. Over the course of episodes w/ all the other guys, this tv-industry-backstage job would make little advances in her `new' career & give BBT opportunities for cameos by other CBS tv-actors. It would reveal she was really pretty good w/ the appropriate joke. As episodes & seasons of BBT would evolve, her career would develop into a full-fledged writer ... for some new batty tv-comedy about nerdy-scientist boys -- & BBT-writers could parody themselves thru Penny's sarcasm about these guys she lives w/.

    Yes it is hilarious but I don't find it surprising when I think about it.They all come from standard nuclear famiies, albeit with funny parental relationships, so it's what they expect of and for themselves as grown men. They all like playing with toys and need not mature their way out of doing so with children in the house. Also there's probably something in each of them that wants to repair his own childhood. It's not a big step for any of them to imagine the loves of their lives as mothers either, even though two at least are nothing like ther own. They're all nurturing types even though Bernie wouldn't admit it.

    Exactly, and a Lenny pregnancy plot has nothing to do with Shamy or Sheldon so it isn't of any interest to the writers. It is much more likely that Amy will be pregnant than Penny.

    Lol I'm sorry man but S10 automatically wins. Nothing gets worser then the s8 finalie. This is down to simple preference. I prefered s10. Some ppl forget how bad 8 was, barley any affection or kissing at all. S10 had tons of affection. S8 too me at too much friction. I,personally prefered how in 10 they actually came across as a real couple. Where as in 8 they didn't imo. Also the finalie is enough for me to prefer it to,8. While just like 8 they were severely diminished. And their were awful episodes like Romance Recalibration. Imo a candidate for WOAT tbbt episode, and the Penny Raj bonding episode. The best Lenny episodes of S10 outweigh the best of 8 imo.

    No competition from me S10 was far better then 8. TBH though ppl go on about 8. But 9 was the real train wreck. Starting from Penny deciding to stay with Sheldon. To the overall pacing of the season. Where as with ten at least they came across as a married couple. And showed a lot more affection. Especially since they put Lenny in 4A. They kinda became the centre piece of the show, when they all hanged out at 4A. They were so,clearly a team. Where as personally with 8. If it was your first time watching you wouldent think they were an engaged couple. They came across as Friends, with very little benefits lol. I mean have we forgotten the god awful, worst finalie ever? I mean trust me. For anyone who was on the forum in 2014. Around that time. Well let's just say S10 is the golden era of Lenny comparatively. It was so bad. S9 and 10 i saw tptpb attempting to least repair what they did. So while 10 was pacing wise pretty bad. A lot of the times they were put in the background. You had the Lenny sex dungeon sequence. That qualifies as fun right? I really love them In The Cohabitation Experimentation. I also loved them in Birthday Syncrocity. The only fun plot from 8 I can remember is Paint Canvas. And sweet moments Prom. Other then that.. But That's what S11 prob needs, more fresh original ideas. The great Holiday Summnation Christmas tree sequence. That was imo funniest thing the show did all season. So for me S10 > S8. I just think in S11 the show needs better balance, and shared screen time. With YS probably unlikely. But we'll, see.

    After a long, very long time (and during a really boring rainy day), I've looked at season (h)8 again to confirm my personal judgment. Now I seriously have to ask myself: Could it be that this season was just not as bad as the last one(10) in comparison? I guess, first time watching an new ep during a season, I am expecting too much that nothing will match my expectations hypothesis. Once I go back and watch some ep's with an open mind and in a new timeframe, it's a lot funnier now. Regarding Lenny's adventures: * Lenny painting like William Shatner * Penny's graduation-surprise for Leonard * Lenny’s sync at The Comic Book Store Regeneration and The Septum Deviation * Their interaction on The Leftover Thermalization and (of course) The Prom Equivalency a.s.o. I know, I'm weird, but what do you think? (*Since I don't just expect positive opinions, I've put my post in this place.)

    Concerning pregnancies, this is how I see Lenny doing it, I think we should first get a false pregnancy scare for Lenny which results it the audience finding out that Penny is hugely disappointed that she is not pregnant with Leonard's baby. They could do this as a second plot in two episodes, the positive test in one and Penny telling the girls but hiding it from Leonard (they could make that very funny) until she gets it straight in her own mind, finally getting excited because of Leonard's happy reaction. The second episode could involve the doctors visit (Lenny acting like expectant parents would be funny), finding out she isnt Pregnant, everyone telling Penny it is for the best and then at the end you find out she had already bought a piece of baby clothing already because she had wanted to be a mother (a sad emotional part for Kaley to act at the end of the episode, Emmy material). An episode later, again the second plot, Penny admits how disappointed she was she wasn't pregnant, so the decide to try and get pregnant (excitement, happy and funny). However, over the next Twenty episodes or so we get little glimpses of they doing it all the time to get her pregnant (super funny, Penny wanting sex with Leonard every time she is ovulating, at home, at work, in the car, in strange places, etc.) Leonard sometimes wore out at work from Penny's pushing him to do it, but they still have no luck. Finally after maybe a romantic evening, in early season 12, they find out Penny is pregnant 6 weeks later and then at the end of season we get a smart and beautiful baby girl. The reason I think it should go this way for Lenny is that going from being in a relationship to engagement and then marriage was difficult for them so shouldn't them having a baby be difficult too.
