    Good Morning all. I've been looking at the radar and the westward motion has stopped. Also, there is some dry air moving into the storm from the west, and you can visually see the west side of the storm falling apart. This hopefully reduces the strength. Unfortunately for Carlos, this means Miami will be getting a lot of the wind and rain. Please take care Carlos. Thank you everyone for your thoughts, it's appreciated.

    Really ? I confess, I loved Jim Parsons’ older work (esp s1-4). ! I was happy when Jim got nominated for his first Emmy and won (his first and only) Golden Globe - in s2 and s4 respectively. Also, i don't agree that Jim failed to make Sheldon lovable and enjoyable on his own. I think he largely succeeded and I felt Sheldon was always human and never a robot! This was also said(and shown) in an old pre-season 4 episode that he was caring and had emotions. In many ways he was more endearing back then , than now. A TV critic said in 2008, something I agreed with: Sheldon has become a character to love, and Jim Parsons is doing something rare on network TV: making intellectualism admirable, even heroic . But my liking of Sheldon was never really dependent and conditional only on Amy. I liked Sheldon for who he was- for himself. I find Sheldon less interesting now post s6 and the overuse of Sheldon just magnifies it. Another thing : I think there are many times when Sheldon comes across to me as intentionally mean-spirited, unfunny, petty, unhappy, regressed, childish , washed up and failing in his career in later seasons. Like wise there were many times Sheldon came across to me as innocent, sharp, funny, insightful, well meaning, intelligent and perfectly content in the earlier seasons. That doesn't mean he doesn't have deeper issues but I don't view it as black and white at all.

    I am so looking forward to group scenes in Season 11, but the S/A scenes in Season 10 were so well written and played by Jim/Mayim. I can't wait to see what they are going to do with the engagement storyline.

    In general, I don't think longevity and ratings necessarily mean high quality and creativity. Just because a show is 12 seasons long doesn't mean quality is good. That is subjective. There are some, IMO, awful long running TV shows ( for instance, i didn't really like 2.5 Men) so I don't see the point . Likewise, many critically acclaimed award-winning shows get cancelled early on too. For tbbt, IMO, there was a period of time, where I felt they did have quality and the writing was (IMO) funny and sharp, especially Sheldon-centric humor(season 2-6) but I am not that sold on TBBT post season 7. Season 10 had some good episodes in the first half, but other than that ...not really.

    Jim and Mayim get along very well. Their friendship is one of things that had made shamy being more special on screen through the years . Both are undeniably very talented actors and have an incredibly chemestry as shamy. They had spoken in interviews or in public appearances about how they had prepared a few shamy milestones scenes and the fact their are friends had helped to perform the scenes in the best sync way. Imo shamy could not be better performed by anyone else but by Jim and Mayim. <3 Btw, I am also a late tbbt viewer. I started to watch by friends recommendation around the time of s8. I had catched up with all seasons for two months and then I suffered like every shamy fan the tough impact of s8 final while we waited for s9 premiere. It has been an incredibly and exciting journey for a shamy fan, hasn't it?

    Hi all. I'm currently in the path of Hurricane Irma. With the current path, the eye will pass over us, sometime late tomorrow night (Sunday 10 Sept). We expect tropical storm force winds some time late tomorrow morning, early afternoon. I fully expect to lose power sometime tomorrow, and it may not be back on for several days or possibly weeks. Any concerns should be sent to Tripper, as I do not expect to be available. I've spent the last three to four days finishing all our preparations to the house (we have hurricane rated impact windows and our house is concrete block), all our stuff is inside, all our cats are safe. We have about 30 gallons of water (~125 liters for our international members) and food enough for a couple of weeks, should that be necessary, and spare cash, if there's no power for cards. If I'm able, I'll be updating Tripper (of course, if the cell tower loses power, I'll be unable to update), so there may be updates here. You all take care and I'll see you on the other side. Tensor

    Good dose of perspective for what is really important in life. Staying tuned in over here in Australia via cable news, where we have these kind of events in common, although not in Melbourne where I am. Stay safe,@Tensor and@Carlos. Do what you need to do to get through this. We are all thinking of you in a scary time. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Amy had never had friends. Once she saw what it was like to be included in a group, that was all she needed. She took it too far with Penny, trying to do all of that goofy BFF stuff girls usually do in middle school, but that passed fairly quickly. Lots of people do enjoy low quality shows, or at least stick with good shows that lose quality through habit. If numbers meant everything Danielle Steele would be one of the greatest authors ever, Justin Bieber would be one of the greatest singers ever, and Frozen would be the greatest animated film of all time. Not everyone would agree with that, but that's the way it is. Good resume of the situation.

    Hi all. I live in Miami and while the eye will not pass directly over us we have been having very heavy rain and wind since around 8:00 PM (Saturday). It is now 1:28 AM and the rain and wind has intensified. I literally cannot believe we still have power. We also have impact windows and our 2 dogs are inside as well. Hoping for the best. Good luck, Rick!

    Mayim has the best facial expressions. Lol It's not long now I am really looking forward to the engagement storyline as well. I agree, I throughly enjoyed the season 10 Sheldon and Amy scenes. I love the chemistry between Jim and Mayim. I don't know if they even like each other in real life, but on camera they are awesome. I didn't even start watching till March on a plane. I enjoyed the whole season so much I have spent most of the summer catching up.

    I'm east of Tampa (grew up in Ruskin, where all the weather alerts come from) and according to the 5PM update, she's weakening and will probably only be a Cat 1 or 2 before she gets up here. Hubby is delivering a load in Oklahoma tomorrow and then heads to Kansas, so I get to weather this in the walk-in closet all by myself. This house has stood up to Charley, Frances, and Jeanne so hopefully I'll be OK. Prayers for Tensor and Carlos (can't figure out how to tag). Seeing the Hillsborough River and Bayshore water levels so low was freaky, y'all

    Short note. We lost power, we have wind damage, we have water leaking into one of our rooms. But the rain has stopped, so once all the current water is gone, we should be ok.

    The show does really miss the conflict between Penny and Sheldon. But they've grown . I understand the characters were allowed to develop. When Amy and Bernadette became series regulars by Season 4. But I also agree with the assessment that quality is subjective. But so is popularity. I mean Quantity comes to mind when I think of this show. I'm just saying popularity does not = < >. Aka Good or bad. You could argue it's peak season, was Season 6. So creatively it's declined. Since. Money talks though. I see as creativity replaced by financial gain. Drive the show into the ground. But as this show makes hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue for the studio yearly. They continue to back the truck up. Of course this show may get to the point, it becomes to expensive to produce. But it is systematic of this show since Season 7. When it became very Sheldon driven. To me it became a very disappointing sequel. I mentioned how they focused and centred on Sheldons quirks, and worst flaws. Problem is by overusing the character of Sheldon. You pretty much just expose his worst flaws. Ironically I found Sheldon more intelligent and caring s1-3. Then I do now. He's more childish, petty, degressed, unfunny e.tc. These days. So It's funny people say he's more human now. I disagree. I found him more endearing and charming Seasons 1-3. By Season 4 the writing of his character almost became comical. He lost all the intricacies, traits, and quirks that made him so unique. His intelligence has almost diminished some what. It's almost like they've dumbed him down some what. A lot of it's too do with the quality of writing. Or lack of. Of course like Serena said. Doesent mean their are not deeper issues with the character of Sheldon. Or any of the characters. It's not black and white. His inability to relate to any human being was replaced by a "he's becoming a real boy" narrative. That clearly most of the mainstream enjoy. Another point was made, that no one is allowed to stand up to Sheldon anymore. I do miss the days of Halcyon Sheldon. And when Penny used to spar with him. But once the Winners wins. Penny and Leonard are just their to accomodate the winner now. Almost like Sheldon has broken down their will lol.

    I'm reminded of when Raj was finally able to speak to women if he drank : 'He's an ass all the time.You just don't hear it.' Sheldon takes unfair advantage at times of the way allowances are made for him when others are thinking he's a poor broken baby who can't help it. He uses that attitude to hide all those negative characteristics serena_1995 mentioned. I wish Emily S was still around. She refused to take Sheldon's BS.

    Yeah Leonard was showing a lot of passion last season. In the Romance Recalibration. When he was playing video games with food on his shirt . Point of that episode last season. Was to show how Leonard is no longer passionate about Penny and their relationship. And no longer tries. So not sure I agree with the characterisation Leonard shows passion. And that's not to say Penny does too. But they both contributed to the lack of passion in their relationship. I think this is a writing issue anyway. Always has been.
