    Yeah He would have to change all the tags in his underwear! I just cannot believe they would end the show with this scenario and leave Penny and Leonard childless after 12 years. That would be such a disservice and a slap in the face to all loyal P&L fans after 12 years of supporting these characters. Sorry, but that is how I feel

    Now, let me get this straight: Sheldon was ready to drop his pants and get Amy pregnant in her own lab, but now he needs to be manipulated into WANTING kids? Lordy, I hope it's just the case of bad wording.

    Interesting that the comment thread on an episode breaks down into a discussion about gravity 😄 Science bitch! 😄 😄 😄 My take on the episode. I thought it was funnier than some before, but I think that's mostly due to Zack's appearance. The guy can always make someone laugh, if only in exasperation about how one like him can even function. I read that some people didn't understand how Sheldon could even consider offering his services for other people's offspring but I think it's quite congruent with Sheldon's behavior: The reason may simply be jealousy. Sheldon learned that someone wanted Leonard for something because of his smarts. Sheldon, who sees himself as superior to Leonard in every way, can't stand that and so, wants his genetic material to be chosen.

    If Leonard didn’t want children or was ambivalent about having children it would be fine, but he is neither. I can not see Leonard leaving Penny ever, I also can’t see Leonard ever being really okay with not having kids (unless they couldn’t). So he is kind of stuck. Poor Leonard.

    One character manipulating the other instead of ‘talking it out’ is in the show’s dna and the writers have shown that if they can get comedy out of it that’s what they will do even going to the extent of ignoring what they have written previously. First thoughts would be that I would take the Amy trying to manipulate Sheldon into trying for a family with a pinch of salt for now, some wires could have been crossed on the set visit. But let’s say it’s true, well it seems like another dumb storyline in a dumb season. For one Sheldon from the evidence I have seen wouldn’t need to be convinced to start a family, in fact the prospect of ‘mixing their dna’ would seem pretty appealing. Of course I could see that changing during the course of a pregnancy, perhaps Sheldon worrying about impending fatherhood and a fear about having children being like him (I’ve always had it in my mind that would become a fear in him at some point, something Shamy would need to get through if they were expecting) but the actual decision to start a family? I don’t see how he would need to manipulated or encouraged for that. I also feel again it’s another old school take on a story. Amy did have to at times manipulate Sheldon to advance their relationship along even sometimes to get to a milestone. I don’t see why she would have to do that now they are married, kind of feels like the writers are really reaching here, trying to mine some old comedy vein even though they have really moved on and aren’t the same people.

    These were great The hug scene was one of the most compelling moments in the entire series and it truly showed Penny and Leonard's unparalleled love for each other

    Donation Oscillation: -It took all episode to get to the vomit comet, and the story should've at least split half the focus with Raj/Anu since it was his bachelor party -In already short episodes, we don't need minute long scenes of Sheldon fixing himself cereal -Good, Leonard/Penny shared a sad hug and came to terms with reality, Wyatt just there to make it seem like more happened For Conference Valuation Speculation: -Maybe someone will notice Penny at the convention? -We're totally headed towards Leonard donating his sperm to Amy, Sheldon is going to be infertile

    Yeah, I don't get it. When they were suggesting names for Howard's kids, Sheldon was keeping his names secret for the 12 kids he said he wanted.

    The Big Bang Theory Recap: Baby Steps I like to put this review of the latest episode from Vulture in here. The selected section describes my thoughts on the subject quite well. "It still feels like the right conclusion for this character to come to on this matter, but the storyline turns out to be a not-so-weird way for the Hofstadters to work through this major relationship issue that divides them. He wants kids; she doesn’t. He said he was okay with that, but the flirtation with the “Zack and Marissa thing,” as he puts it, says otherwise. Maybe there is no resolution, though, at least not one where everyone gets what they want, and definitely not without someone making a big compromise or sacrifice. But that, again, feels like a much more realistic place for the couple to be in, given how out of the blue (and weirdly) this “Zack and Marissa thing” became part of their lives." As I said before, back into the "neutral zone". Perhaps this time the violation of the neutral zone will take another direction. Who knows. 🙂

    I've been interning at a local publication here on long island for about six months now and I'm responsible for writing what celebrities who live here or have homes here are up to for the website. Honestly, while it's good writing experience to put on a resume, it's really turned me off to this form of news. It doesn't matter how stupid or minuscule it is, it's my job (and other writers) to pump out a minimum of 300 words and make it sound like it's the most important thing you've ever read. So I'm with you, I'm not forming an opinion until I know the wording isn't some journalist's way to make it sound more dramatic than it is. That's the job.

    One journalist, among the many that visited Stage 25 during the TCA Set Visit Day described the plot of what they had seen. Normally that is not done and on some of the other set visits they made that day they were instructed to not reveal any spoilers. Most just posted pictures of the keepsakes they received or the food that they ate. One guy, whose perception was that Amy was "manipulating" Sheldon does not make for me a taping report. So I will withhold judgement until I get more detail from other sources.

    You said that you'd never thought Sheldon and Amy would get married because she insulted physics but the point of the episode was that Sheldon was already going crazy without her (*cough*25cats*cough) so should have been a hint that Amy was here to stay.

    Okay in my mind I hear the following when I see this scene. Penny: Leonard I’ve changed my mind, I want to have your baby because........ Penny & Leonard: Kissing sounds

    My opinion is that Leonard may except the no kids now but down the road a few years he may see families around him and start to realize what missing in his life and rethink his decision to stay with Penny Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

    But not showing much of it contradicts the concept of a TV series. We already have to use up enough imagination to explain all the off-screen scenes. 😉 Anyway, sometimes I wonder, hey, the writers let out such crazy ideas, why don't they make it a funny episode?

    "Will she" - the future indefinite. The writers keep dancing around this topic to taunt fans. Amy and Sheldon talked about kids before their first date, about having them on Mars, etc. Nothing new there. As I don't write fan fiction, or read it, I don't bring the same intensity, or personal stake in these characters you bring to these discussions. I think the writers have come close to ruining the character 'Penny'. Sad!

    Not gonna happen! Not enough time, plus pretty much squelched Lenny's pregnancy. They won't open that can of worms!

    And I think the 'will she want to have a baby, or won't she' thread is a stain on the final season. I would prefer to see them doing something that makes them happy rather than arguing and manipulating each other about this topic.

    If the writers go there, end the show with Amy pregnant and Lenny childless, I truly believe it is the piano dropped on Lenny fans by Lorre, because of their reaction to the childless Lenny plot they pushed in 12x03.

    How is the Penny character ruined by deciding to not have kids? She will still have a wonderful life with Leonard. Just because they may not have kids does not mean her or Leonard's life is over. There really is life to be lived without kids...Penny has matured and grown into her own person since we first met her. I don't see her as ruined.

    I don't think they would present it that way. But they did set the Nobel plot up so it is dicey since they have the conflict with the two different competing papers. I'd be happy if neither of them won. Who thinks Lorre cares? I am not raising my hand here. And Lenny OR fans of pregnancy plots are not the only fans anyway. I thought of that, too. Why?

    I have no connection with these aircraft but your description sounds wrong to me. For example if one were to put a three axis accelerometer in free fall it would register zero g. Vertigo has nothing to do with that. Sorry. You are wrong. An object in orbit is in free fall. It is accelerating towards the center of the earth but the direction of travel and acceleration is constantly changing so the radius from the centre of the earth is constant. Actually skydiving is somewhat different because the person quickly reaches terminal velocity. That means they do not remain in free fall because of air resistance which stops the acceleration.

    I feel her decision to not have children manifested it self into guilt. I Think it is likely its the classic Penny can't commit storyline. I Don't think Penny changed her mind at all. I just think the dynamics have shifted a bit. At first it was primarily Penny's decision, and they diddn't even discuss it. IT has now shifted to Leonard's point of view. And it is now more about his realization he well never be in the kids life. Leonard wants kids, because of his childhood was so cold and distant. And probably yearns for a connection, and further his spawn. Penny like you said probably feels "Cool Aunty Penny" is not enough. And Slugger seems a very clinical assement of how she views her childhood. Reminds me a bit of The Maternal Capicatance. Which showed subconciousley they have a deep seeded connection. And this episode showed it again. But like I Said I either think Penny well give birth in the penultimate episode. OR they well leave the idea a Gray Area. Leave it purposely open for the audience to interpret.

    Sheldon only in his underwear? I would be more excited too 😁. That would be an amusing story I bet. Or fans of baby plots on this show...that is more of an issue for me than it being Lenny centric. If it was Sheldon and Amy I would have the exact same reaction. Boring episode, boring season. I have said for ages please no more baby plots in the show. for anyone. No Lenny, not Shamy not Howadette, not Rajanu and not Stunice.

    A lot of people watching Big Bang aren’t necessarily watching Young Sheldon so they don’t know YS proclaimed Shamy will have kids. So it’s no surprise they are throwing that in to the final few episodes. The Nobel plot is just a waiting game now so it would appear this is the next Shamy story to dominate the screen now that Lenny have had their A plot moment. Personally don’t see a need to ram a Shamy pregnancy story in when they’ve only just been married a few months but well Shamy rules! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I deleted what I wrote here not wanting to ruin it to other people. I do not like where the show is going and I think it is time for me to stop watching and maybe leave the forum. This is not for me.

    As someone who’s been to a taping, sometimes the experience of being there live sort of compels you to laugh. It went on for so long the absurdity of him making breakfast oblivious to the fact Leonard was on the couch and the unexpected nature of that much time passing without Sheldon uttering a sound elicited a response from the audience. When I look back at the episode I saw taped, I often wonder, why did I laugh at that? That’s wasn’t funny. But I just did. Possibly because others did. IDK. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    weather is a valid point. Episodes airing in January usually have higher ratings . There has been extremely harsh cold weather and storms in east coast and mid west USA which may cause more people to stay in and watch TV.
