    Well, when I examine the totality of the statements made by Sheldon, my overall assessment is that he is generally less credible than those around him. His whackiness is the basis of the show. It’s not like his schtick is about speaking truth to power. To some degree his role is to say those things said by drunk uncles at family gatherings - to get a laugh in the context of the show. As to prophetic powers - who knows. But Sheldon’s opinions - which is what he was expressing at the time - are generally and by design completely whack. As evidence I refer you to.... the show. Pick any episode for examples. Edit: carve out physics. That’s not opinion.

    With repairs to my house, I'm running behind on some things here. Sheldon and Raj tied for the most time in the episode, at 10:30, with Howard at 6:45 and Johnny at 4:05 and None of the women had over three minutes (A=2:15, B= 1:00, and P= 2:55). I take that back, Ruchi had more time than each of the others woman, and Johnny at 4:10. Raj and Ruchi had 4:10 total and 3:00 alone. That was more than all three of the other couples, combined.

    Yes. Character Screen Time On Friday, Johnny was at the taping of his production "Living Biblically". A member of another forum was at the taping. After the the curtain call, when everything was wrapped, a church choir that was in a scene sang for the audience. Johnny was very touched and emotional while the choir sang.

    Might be because Leonard's comment was brought up again (by someone other than Leonard, and in a way that suggested it's been brought up, off camera by Leonard more than that one time), and Sheldon's comment hasn't been brought up again.

    A very happy birthday to the dedicated and nice Shamy fellow @Susana Alcira . I hope you have a great one

    After seeing the episode one more time, I had another thought: Since when they were struggling to put their highly paid stars on set (is Leonard even in the show anymore, is Johnny Galecki a guest star now, seriously?).

    Not me. I like that Penny has been about as sexy as TBBT could contain without a hint of sleaze.

    Lenny rarely wander to far from their safe territory that is the kitchen island. Penny is looking gorgeous with that hair style and that sweater.

    I mostly want to know Amy's background story, because we know the one about each other character in the show. If there's a father out there, I want to know how he looks like and how he is. Generally speaking, I think the writers have been "good" at casting parents so far. Not really good for other relatives, especially siblings, that's true. Since we know nothing about Amy's family, there are no set expectations to be fulfilled or disappointed, as it happened with Mee-maw, for example.

    Yeah, I was wondering what other instance you meant but I think we didn't even get a "parents" comment at all in S10. And suddenly in S11 we have Shamy having off-screen dinners with them. The reference to her father could go either way so to me it feels a strong shift that came with Holland. Maybe Molaro really thought of Amy's dad as being absent in some form and Holland thought he'd rather do something different?

    Perhaps Sheldon's casting video as professor Proton or an episode of fun with flags.

    I think they are very flexible when it comes to providing us more detail about her parents, they have plenty of writing options and background information they could implement with those characters. Her mother we haven't heard much about for a long time now and even then we got conflicting stories about her. Her father is a complete blank canvas in a way. So they could do anything with them and it will likely make sense. I just hope we finally get to see them!

    I agree with all you wrote and to me it feels like the writers are using old discarding scripts from previous seasons because the stories they are telling doesn't really fit in season 11 at the moment in my opinion.
  17. 3 points
    Agree. I would add they are getting to be stuck with that to most characters at the moment. However I , as viewer, have to keep the faith they would improve about it soon. Because if I stop to believe they could, I will only have two choices: or I stop watching or I stop posting here. I am not willing to pick none at moment so I still believe.

    At least she doesn't wear ugly outfits every week like Amy. Her Little House on the Prairie sleepwear is just nauseating..

    You notice these days how when it comes to Penny and wine. She is very selective now. She has it maybe on a one per special occasion basis. i think we all remember in S4 she was practically drunk every week LOL. Wel it felt like that. But it seems she is more reserved now. And is more a coffee girl now heh. Married life huh.

    They went to Texas because it was Christmas. It's traditional to spend it with family and/or close friends. Sheldon's nephew has a birthday then, too. We know Sheldon doesn't go every year. One year Raj's father came to him for Christmas and Amy hosted the dinner. In American English, 'Holiday' refers to its older meaning, which is a religious festival or commemoration. 'The Holidays' is sometimes used as a synonym for Christmas. TBBT is an American programme. In British English 'holiday' has gained a broader meaning, referring to any day or days off, or a time for enjoyment spent away from home, work, or school. 'Vacation' is also used to refer to parts of the academic year when the universities are closed to students. Historically official holidays were connected to holy days, mainly Christmas, St Stephen's ( Boxing ) Day, Easter, and Pentecost aka Whitsun which has recently been replaced by Spring Bank Holiday which may or may not fall on the holy day in the Church calendar. Fun fact : In Scotland there was a time when although Christmas Day was officially a holiday nearly everybody worked anyway. Apart from going to Church, they seemed to ignore it and wait a week for the fun. I don't know if it's still the case. The first year I had a computer I had a super time finding websites or fax numbers for shops in Scotland and spending my Christmas money on Christmas Day. Everything I bought came the day after Boxing Day in England because post offices in Scotland were open. Yay !

    But the difference between him and Sheldon was tremendous (and maybe got larger with this one) while the difference between him and Amy was very small. Leonard's screen time used to be so much closer to Sheldon's. I also feel* that whenever Leonard gets an A plot Sheldon has a B plot or takes a big part in Leonard's plot, while Leonard is barely there when Sheldon has an A plot. *I didn't go @Tensor on it so I can't say it's a fact.

    I did say 'or parents' but you were right, I just checked the Holiday Summation again when they went to Texas for some reason I thought Sheldon had said something along the lines of 'how would you have liked it if I told your parents?' when it was fact just 'mother'. Amy then replies I would be happy if you showed interest in my 'family'. My bad it was just the once in Season 10 when they were sitting on the bed that her father was mentioned.

    I also don't think it would be that difficult to cast Amy's family cause they are more of a blank slate anyway. With both Meemaw and Penny's brother there were years and years of build up that made people have vastly different expectations for these characters. With Amy's father that's not the case at all cause we didn't know he even existed until recently.

    I am not happy , I just thought it was funny. There are many stupid things from the show which are greetly loved among fans and I hate them. It is fair enough, I guess.

    Holland seemed open to the possibility to have Amy's father on screen at some point. I hope he really meant it and that we see both her parents, minimally at Shamy wedding. We already saw her mother once. Recently, I've read that some fans on Twitter think the character might be re-casted, since through the years she was depicted in a less favorable light and maybe the inoffensive, innocuous lady who was cast the first time is not the right match. I'm not sure they will re-cast the character, TBH I wouldn't be that much ok with that...Plus, it wouldn't be the first time what the writers have said through the years about a parent doesn't reflect how they appear when we have a more extensive plot about them.

    I agree with @April that having Amy's father into the picture could be a writing decision happened very recently. I like your explanation of him working away from home most of the time, it seems a good in-universe one for the fact Amy's mother was for the most part responsible of her education. Out-of universe, anyway, I got the impression the writers throughout the years had been somehow suggesting he was not in Amy's life, up to the first time he was mentioned in S. 10. It might be a coincidence, obviously, but I wonder if they really wanted at first to tell a different story for Amy's family (with a father who was dead or for some reason out f the picture) and then changed their mind. If so, I wonder why they changed their minds. Maybe they found a good match for the character, an actor they wanted in the show and decided to write him as Amy's dad. It can be cool....

    Well said ! Last year I hoped for more seasons because I wanted to know what was going to happen to these people. So far it's b ____r all. Of course we can't have life-changing events every week, that wouldn't be believable and a little repetition is good for continuity, but they're a third of the way through a season now and they've done next to nothing. They haven't even built on anything that has come up. There's plenty they could have followed up on. Amy and Howard could have made something useful in their prosthetic project and won a prize and got featured on the news ; Sheldon and Howard could have designed and built a better model rocket and made some money; Beverly could have come to stay in 4a at Penny's invitation while she writes a book or escapes after giving a controversial radio interview about her last one on high-achieving couples; We could have had some girls' nights with Bernie stretched out on the sofa; Shamy could have been house-hunting with the drama teacher's wife who's a realtor; Sheldon could have been interfering with Wil's TV science show or even better, writing scripts for it; Raj could have met a girl who doesn't want to go to bed as soon as she's been introduced to him and they could be shown doing interesting things that don't cost much money. Sheldon could buy a car and take confidence-building refresher driving lessons; Penny could have an idea for a new medicine; She might read an article and suspect she's infertile thanks to her and Leonard's chequered sexual pasts, but turn out to be wrong. All this stuff they have the foundations for already and the development of it could use up a lot of episodes with a little bit of it every week. Lots of 'coulds' there and I'm sure we all have our own ideas. Why the writers seem short of them, goodness knows.

    The writers seems to be pretty stuck with their storytelling about some of the characters on the show in my opinion to be honest.

    LenPen huh? Penny the lens. Because Leonard was in front of her the whole time, but she had to zoom in to really see that. Leonard the pen. Because the moment he meet her he was just waiting to sign the dotted line on their marrage certificate.

    I'm still mulling over Sheldon & Amy's chat on the couch from the latest episode. Amy's line .."that dinner with my parents comes to mind"

    We've not heard much about episode 11.08 so far. We don't know yet whether it is about common courtesy or about keeping an official secret. Sheldon had quite a scare when he left his notebook in a bar. He might just be being over-cautious this time. Whether he'll be a jerk or just muddled as to the right thing to do are equally likely, I'd say. I wouldn't put money on either possibility at this stage.

    I find it odd that the official YouTube channel hasn't uploaded the 30-second promo or any sneak peeks for "The Tesla Recoil." I suppose that it could be due to Veteran's Day and that someone may be getting to it early this week, but still... Sometimes, videos are uploaded almost immediately after the previous episode has aired, while other times, it's a day or two prior to the actual episode airing on CBS.

    I'm glad someone is happy about it. I think it's the stupidest hairstyle she's had since she got the pixie cut. And Sheldon came right back at him that they would be imaginary. Why put more credence in what Leonard said than Sheldon? Just curious at this comes up all the time. And the punchline for a lot of jokes about Leonard are about how he wore Penny down, and the punchline for a lot of jokes about Penny are that she's got a drinking problem and she was a bully and slutty as a younger girl and sometimes they don't even have the decency to make them subtle. Not everyone buys that certainly. So why does everyone have to buy the jokes about Raj? I never saw him have a sexual reaction to any other man and if anyone did I'd like them to tell me so I can go back and rewatch.
