    Generally, you win a Nobel in your 60s for work you did in your 30s.

    Understandable. Probably my perception is influenced by my lack of interest in Shamy's story. 😉 I agree with that. Right now I'm really horrified about the level we're offered for the last season. 🙄

    I agree with the second half of your post. But disagree with the first half, Sheldon/Shamy have had way too much attention on them this season. They have had more plots than anyone else. As for the Super Asymmetry plot i had no problem with it at first. But now i am just tired of the constant focus on it.

    And you know the worst is, on the long run it's not even funny anymore.

    IMO S6 and S9 Valentines ended up being good. "The Tangible Affection Proof" is one of my very favorite episodes because of their conversation after dinner. If you think it through, it was practically a pre-engagement, Penny agreed to propose when she feels the time is right.

    It’s kinda sweet, yeah... and if this kid storyline was mutual and done in a more positive way, then I’d probably agree. But right now things for Lenny don’t seem as good as for the other couples 🤷🏼‍♀️

    The reason I wouldn't like them to win a Nobel is not that I don't want them to have a win. If it were a lesser prize I would be all for it. Winning a Nobel and all happening so fast just feels too unrealistic to me, it is fairytale-y to me in a way that I do not enjoy. Having kids with a spouse is much more realistic...

    That statement follows the rule of three and the rule of funny (something the writers prefer over everything). When you combine the rule of three (things in three are funny) with the rule of funny, you get two serious things, and one incongruent thing, that causes the laugh.

    Brian Thomas Smith (Zack) posted a picture on his Instagram story, standing in the set of apartment 4A holding the script of the episode they will tape tonight. The picture is captioned with "Great practice. Game time in a couple hours. @bigbangtheory_cbs"

    Another example. Episode 6.15, 11.20 and 12.04.

    While we're on it, here's an example of a T-shirt Penny wore at least two times. Episode 11.12 and episode 11.22. And it costs "only" $79.

    I do believe they'll say their happy and smile and so. I'm just not sure how much it will ring true to me, that depends on what will happen by then. Still, I doubt anything they do will make me think the no kids and donation plots were anything but huge, terrible mistakes.

    Yep, and that’s gonna be one of the worst plots in tv history... What bothers me most in this Lenny kids issue - other couples have everything. Shamy will probably end up with Nobel and at least twins, Howardette got their dream jobs and two kids, and then there is Lenny...

    She repeated other outfits as well. Less than the other, but she did. Some of her work clothes are an example (e.g. that red and grey pantsuit). I don't remember every one but I do remember seeing her wear something and remembering it from another episode.

    Definitely. When I watch my favorite shows (TBBT is sadly no longer one of them) I look forward to enjoy what they bring, trusting the writers and enjoying the ride. With TBBT I'm just waiting to see how they're gonna screw things even more than they already have. At least that's some kind of expectationa they do meet..? It's such a shame. To think I was hopeful when the season started...

    A nerd, yes that sounds serious for a nerd. I'm sure that Sheldon, Raj and Howard would agree with Leonard. I mean they fought over that Lord of the Rings ring and went bat crap crazy over that time machine,

    I don't think Shamy (fka Sheldon) is getting too much attention. The whole storyline with their super sym- or asymmetry bores (me) to death and I can't discover "the humor of nature" in it either. The stories of the other characters are more like the usual stuff. Now, there’s Lenny. At the beginning of the season I had the feeling that their storylines were more detailed than usual and showed the cohesion of both more clearly. And yes, the usual teasing is still part of it! All this could have happily accompanied us to the end if it hadn't... yes, if it hadn't been for this completely absurd train of thought of the writers (which I don't have to describe here anymore). This stupid way into a drama leaves me pretty stunned now. 🙄

    Yes. They did refer to this, which was a positive surprise, but it's too unrealistic and fairytaley for me. I wouldn't like any other character to suddenly win a Nobel either, or in Penny's case a sudden critical acclaim for the crappy movies she did.

    Unless they want to address the baby issue again, I don’t think there will be much of a Lenny valentines story, if any at all, because the whole tone of this season to me is about Sheldon and his Nobel.
  21. 4 points
    Yeah. They want to, but they can't. Please don't ask us why. 😉

    I'll be there tomorrow as well! Plan on getting there early afternoon. I have a "guaranteed" ticket, but will still get there early to make sure. Good luck stand-by people!

    If we get any info, we don't know if we will Putting this together with the other things is Leonard's kind of humor.

    When he met Penny he wanted to have kids with her. He never wanted to have kids by any old mother, only Penny.

    True. But it's not what the outcome was/is, but how the writers build it in this case (for me).

    Why not, life long dreams, IMO, don’t necessarily have to be about career or family or other serious stuff, we can dream about anything, as long as our imagination allows us ☺️

    Lenny can always stand by the kitchen island

    Honestly, I have to admit that I find Sheldon's development as implausible as Lenny's story I have complained about. (I'm sorry to hear about your personal troubles.)

    Well, I would have thought the Campus Rape Joke (Amy's experience recounted in S7 I think) was setting the bar pretty high for offensiveness.
  35. 3 points
    That would have been the smarter move! But no, they went and painted themselves in a corner. They're probably running round like chickens with their heads cut off trying to fix it!

    Standing behind the kitchen island literally showed a steadfast development for Lenny over the years. They deserve a Nobel for stability. But just seriously, as I was saying, "everything stays different". We're still have to wait. 😉

    I was often that cheap date on Ladies day with my now very long time husband.

    From Entertainment Tonight 'The Conners' Finale: Are Darlene and David Getting Back Together? Darlene is finally happy -- which means it was just about time for David to come back into her life. On The Conners season finale, Darlene (Sara Gilbert) excitedly begins to tell her family that Ben has asked her and her kids to move to Chicago with him. She does feel a little guilty, seeing as she promised to stay and help Becky (Lecy Goranson) raise her baby, but her pregnant sister is fully supportive of the move, as is her dad, Dan (John Goodman), who's pretty thrilled about the idea of having some peace and quiet -- before Becky inevitably becomes the next Conner child to move back in. Darlene's kids, Harris (Emma Kenny) and Mark (Ames McNamara) are just as stoked about the idea of getting out of Lanford, where Harris especially feels she's been tortured in suburban hell for the past couple of years, so the move seems like a no brainer for Darlene, who is finally happy and in what seems like a solid relationship with Ben, a small miracle after divorcing her childhood sweetheart, David (Johnny Galecki). Naturally, this is about the time David comes knocking on the door of the Conner home. He reveals to Darlene that he's finally broken up with his girlfriend, Blue, because she wanted kids and "the whole package" -- a fun fact she revealed to Darlene at Becky's baby shower in the last episode -- which David just couldn't give her. His family, after all, had always been with Darlene. It's a completely unfair move on his part, especially when he tells Darlene to say no to Ben's Chicago request, which included one hell of a guilt trip from David: "Are you really going to bail on me to move in with some stranger?" Darlene makes sure to let him know how crappy that is, especially since that's exactly what he did to her with Blue, but she's obviously thrown by the confrontation -- which would happen to anyone who's grappling with a major relationship move just as an ex decides to re-declare their love for you. <full article in the link>

    Yep. Maybe they want to compete with HIMYM for controversial finale.

    Now I also know why I hardly watch TV anymore. No wonder with the current choice. Oh, no offence, Penny! 😉

    I’m still hopeful! And I really hope tonight’s taping won’t change that 😁 (but if Leonard says yes to Zack ughhhh 😭)

    Because seriously wanting a batmobile is kind of infantile.

    That does not sound the same as life long dream. How serious can one take it when he also wanted a batmobile?

    You'd think that. But, I have my doubts with this staff of writers!

    I get it's not his fault. But are you suggesting the Nobel Prize is more important than Amy?
  48. 2 points
    Not against everyone winning. Not against Shamy winning if Lenny don’t. As I said earlier, I like everyone and want them to end happy. Was replying to skulls comment about Sheldon not winning Nobel. I would find his reaction to not winning more INTERESTING than winning to see how the writers would craft that story. But not against him getting Nobel, unrealistic though it may be in such a short time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So your saying Sheldon should win a Nobel prize because it's his life long dream, and Leonard should be happy because he at least has Penny even though his life long dream of having kids will be left unfulfilled.

    Tomorrow is the big day for us. We cross our fingers for the stand by ticket. Hope to see some of you there
