    Hi guys, there seem to be no details about the thanksgiving taping, so I’ll fill you in a little. Sorry for not posting earlier. This was due to travelling and illness. To start with I was surprised that everything that had been taped, had already been broadcast. So we got to see 1209 which had already aired before the taping. 1210 is a direct continuation of 1209 “The Citation Negation”. I’ll give you the name of the episode when I am home and have dug out the little program of the show. There are lots of guest stars: Iain Armitage, Lance Barber, Montana Jordon and Christine Baranski. I almost screamed when I read this so my excitement was huge 😊. Sheldon is still upset about the Russian Paper so Amy goes over to Lenny to find out if there is anything she can do that she hasn’t tried yet to cheer him up. Leonard suggests tea but Amy tells him that Sheldon now questions everything and has renamed tea into “leaf soup” 😉 So Leonard gives Amy an old video cassette and VCR with a recording Sheldon had apparently made as a child for himself for an emergency like this. We get to see the first minutes of the tape (Iain speaks) but then the tape changes to a football match his father had taped so the original footage is gone. Sheldon is devastated. Leonard’s mother is video chatted for advice. While Sheldon is in the bedroom Amy continues to watch the video. After a while Sheldon comes out and asks “why are you watching this”? Amy explains that she hoped that there is something left of the recording. It is then when we get to see Lance Barber talking to his football team including Montana. The team had lost horribly so Lance explains that you actually learn more from mistakes than from success (this is actually very sweet). Both Amy and Sheldon are surprised to see his dad on tape. Then Amy begins thinking that they have made a mistake and that the Russian paper could be right but that there are more sides to super asymmetry (sorry, I can’t remember the exact wording). So in the end they are both back on track. There is a little side story where Howard plays “the great Howdini” which is quite funny. I liked this episode a lot because of its depth and the character development. It is also beautifully written and the video tape is an excellent means to bring in the Young Sheldon characters. If you have any questions please ask, I’ll try to answer them.

    I've been rather rare around here for the last month or two (I usually helicopter in a few times a day to check on the place). We finally got all our damaged fixed (a year after the storm), and are doing some other upgrades to the house. I had the house re-stuccoed, and I'm in the middle of painting it, , replacing some carpeting with tile, and we have new doors. Also, some electrical work done, and I am adding ethernet throughout the house. The doors and the electrical work I had people come in to do it. The painting, tiling, and ethernet I'm doing myself. Along with this, we had to had to replace several large appliances. I love that my TV died on Friday, Black Friday. So I was able to get a pretty great Sony (65" XBR900F) for 900 less than the average price I found on the internet, prior to Black Friday. With all of that, I'm also working on some data analysis ( a part time job) and a fan fic, (It's a Lenny story) and I'm at chapter 42 so most of the time I'm on the computer, I'm either writing or tweaking some program parameters for the analysis. I bring all this up to give you the reason I have not been doing the schedule, or the ratings (although I've been doing Season 12 character times, just not putting it up yet). I'm hoping to have all the work on the house done in the next couple of weeks and the data analysis has to be done by the 9th. I will try to catch up on everything over the holidays, and early January. Although I'm looking at trying to get some tickets for a taping in January. So, please accept my apologies for not being able to keep up with those things so far this year.

    For me, my view is that after breaking up with Leonard, Penny ran away from the world of relationships. The last thing she wanted was anything serious. She fell back into what she was familiar with. Also someone who was very unlike Leonard (the love of her life, even then. She was just unable to give voice to those feelings, to admit it to Leonard and to admit it to herself). Luckily, Zach was a kinder, gentler version of the "type" that she usually went for.

    Probably not sarcasm. I've seen parts of several different Friends episodes , but I haven't seen a full episode ever. I don't intentionally look for it now, and if I come across it while flipping through the channels, I keep flipping. From the parts I've seen, it doesn't do anything for me, but like Capt Hilts, I hear it's pretty good, from others.

    I think there was quite abit that Raj held back from Leonard He did not let Leonard know about her feelings. He did not tell Leonard that Priya was going back to India. He still got in bed with Penny knowing that she really loved Leonard. He did not want anyone to know of his premature embarrassment but yet bragged to all how he bedded Penny. These factors surely do not show him as a good friend

    If Penny would have dated “quality guys” during the time she was broken up with Leonard they would have just been a copy of Ross and Rachel from Friends.

    Totally agree. The writers don't care about the impact that "ys" has on TBBT. as long as that other show looks good!

    It took a drunk Penny to admit out loud. I don't remember Raj being a good friend and letting Leonard know Penny's feelings.

    I get your point, and I'm not saying what they did was necessarily better. What I meant was maybe being with someone with more potential would be more serious in her eyes and that would bring up her fears or the feeling of replacing Leonard that maybe she didn't want to feel. Zach was more of an escape, like being with somebody without really being with somebody. I do think that it was nice to see that Leonard was the one who was able to move on faster than Penny (in fact she never really did), showing he's not so lame and desperate for Penny.

    That's it, really. Raj needs someone to tell him what to do. He always has.

    I'm not sure he cared more for Georgie, just that he knew better what to do with him. Sheldon was perhaps the bigger worry. George Snr at least superficially was able to respond more positively to Georgie when they were on the same wavelength but he still made efforts with Sheldon. In any family, different children make different demands. If parents get a child who's nothing like anybody they've encountered before,it might be harder to know what to do but it doesn't mean they care for that child less than for the others.

    Yeah i agree i mean R and R is one of my all time fav sitcom couples, and Friends is my fav sitcom of all time (Although I appreciate the show is not to everyones taste). But if they had Penny like Rachel did with Tag, Joshua, Mark etc. Date "Quailty Guys". It woul imo diminish the uniqueness of Lenny. Leonard is the one guy, whos different to the rest for her. Its like in S2 The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis. When Penny fully embraced the guys. And truly started to love Leonard. David Underhill who was a quality guy. Ended up being a jerk. That is prob what made the Leonard Mandy angle so bad. As for the YS crossover. Yeah i feared this. A poorly thought out video tape plot. Which seems to tie in with the super asymetry plot. Hacked together and misjointed. Thats the best they can come up with? A VCR illiumnation Tape to encourage a mopy Sheldon. To strengthn his beleif in himself, how bold. Least Christine Baranski is returning.

    Again, not "serious," but a date with a guy having "status." Had she dumped a major league baseball player to be with Leonard, then the "she settled for him" jokes would not work. She would meet such a guy at the cheesecake factory, the gym, whatever. I see all sorts of celebrities [political, news] at a dodgy diner by my house. A sports/news broadcaster. She's always depicted as the sportsfan on the show. Penny is supposed to be the "hot" girl, but she was only shown dating brawny knuckle-draggers. She's cute and funny and would have been able to attract a better class of guy. The exception was seeing that physicist who was a complete cad. Leonard was supposed to be the one who had difficulty with women, yet women threw themselves at him. As depicted on the show, their experiences dating others was the opposite of the premise of the show.

    Sheldon could have ignored Howard, but nooo, he and Amy had to escalate the matter. But then, that's par for the course for shamy. They have no knowledge of what being a good friend entails. Then again that applies to Howard, Raj and to an extent Leonard. Well it's a comedy and funny rules the day. Although I didn't find Amy, trying to be her supposed friend Bernadette, a bit funny. I know some here did and I am happy for ya'll. Please excuse my Southern terminology!

    Sheldon could have ignored Howard which would have driven Howard crazy. But no, the writers probably didn't find that funny enough!

    I didn't find Leonard and Priya's relationship implausible. They were two nice and educated people who enjoyed each other's company and were attracted to each other, and they had some nice moments befire the writers turned her into a controlling girlfriend who tries to change Leonard when he doesn't want to and is even physically hurt on the way. Stephanie and Leonard were compatible in my eyes, until it turned out she is too dependent. Her disappearance was weird. I agree they could've given Penny a more serious boyfriend, but maybe she didn't really look for one. Zach to me seemed like just "having fun", the kind of guy she would date before Leonard and it wouldn't scare her because there were no real stakes there, as opposed to the high stakes of thinking she may marry Leonard and being aware of their differences and the highly educated women he dated before her.

    But of history. It was November 23rd, 2009. The Vengeance Formulation aired. One of my all time favourite from the series.

    am i the only one who doesn't like the actress choice for anu when i think of Raj marrying a lady she is nothing like what i had pictured nor what Raj had described previously ( ok he described basically sandra bullock lol ) but still not what i had imagined i kinda liked his other " setup wife" his parents got him earlier on that pairing made more sense to me the one who was a lesbian i think she would have made a great choice for the role in season 12 had she not got the role earlier im not sure if its a new role effect where something disrupts the normal show and you instantly dislike it until you get used to it but iv tried over the last 9 episodes to adjust to her and i am finding it very hard, maybe as we get closer to the end i'll warm up to her but right now she rubs me the wrong way whenever she is on screen

    Agreed. Being vegetarian or vegan for health reasons might be necessary for some people, or it can be a lifestyle choice. There are laws that protect farm and game animals in most civilised countries. If Mayim or anybody else discovers they are ill-treated anywhere she should report it.

    'If' indeed. I don't know if it will the survive the children growing much older. Already as Sheldon has aged a year they've only moved him up one school grade although according to TBBT canon he has to graduate High school and be in AP classes next year. All the characters have their own stories and there's a lot to write every week. It could, I bet, have stood alone up to now with its own fanbase had it begun 'cold' without any reference to another show. Whether it can do that under the circumstances is a matter for speculation. There are four ten-year-old children who're going to be adolescent before the programme-makers can blink but possibly not all changing at the same time. It's going to be challenging to keep coming up with scripts unless they change the title and the focus. Tam's actor has already shot up and looks more as though he's too old to be friends with somebody four years younger than he did six months ago. I'm not saying they can't rise to it, but whether they'll have the will, the funding and the capability I wouldn't put money on one way or another.

    Prob late to the party. But only just watched The Grant Allocation Derivation. Penny just so sexy in this one. I find Penny much more appealing when shes turned on by Leonard lol. I also think its her apperence too. Compared to the S8 look. Im loving her long blonde hair. And her sexy, professional, chic look.

    The thing is, this explanation works for some of Sheldon's memories, but not for all of them. He recalled his father being too drunk to drive and having his brother (I think at 10?) drive instead of him. That doesn't fit YS George Sr. He recalled his father having a girlfriend who his mother met, that could still happen but it doesn't seem to fit George Sr. from YS. He remembers hhis father making him watch football since he was very young, yet this doesn't seem to happen, at least not as a regular thing, on YS. Mary herself, on TBBT, talked about George Sr. as a stupid drunk, in a way that seem to support Sheldon's ideas of him, yet YS's George Sr. does not fit that description.

    ...and on: This, I think, fits in well with this remarkable excerpt from an article on this website. The Big Bang Theory: 20 Weird Fan Theories (That Make Too Much Sense) screenrant.com "One of the series' biggest unsolved mysteries is undoubtedly Penny's last name, which has become a hot discussion topic for fans. While she is now sometimes called Penny Hofstadter, fans can only guess what her maiden name is. In a forum discussion on The Big Bang Theory Fan Site, multiple ideas, some more humorous than others, can be found on the subject, ranging from “Lane” to “Jones.”

    That's quite remarkable: …forcing a crossover that doesn't service the long-running sitcom with only a limited number of episodes left, they're inadvertently turning off a lot of viewers. Over the last few seasons, fans have pointed out how the show tends to spend a lot of time focusing on Sheldon - relegating other characters to nothing more than supporting players. Devoting a whole episode exploring Sheldon's past when there are still so many unresolved plot points pertaining to other characters before the show bows out will undoubtedly fuel the backlash… Absolutely agreed.

    I don’t think Johnny will go for it and I think Kaley is all talk about continuing. If the show ends in a satisfactory way for Lenny I think fans will be happy.
