    The remarkable thing about Leonard and Penny is that they know it shouldn’t work. Penny tells that to herself all the time. All of Leonard’s friends (save Stuart) constantly tell him and intimate to him that it’s only a matter of time until...(Sheldon, quite deep into P & L’s time together: “oh! We all know how this will end!”). Yet they persevere. Penny wants him and only him with every fiber of her being. Leonard knows she is the one that will make him happy. Despite fears on both sides, they know they have each other. Always.

    I agree, we can't have that pesky Leonard just letting himself into 4B any time he feels like it. So rude, using his emergency key and then sleeping on Sheldon and Amy's couch.

    One thing L&P have going for them is a very high tolerance for difficult people. It is like their super power. They have willingly put up with Sheldon after all. Few would/could.

    Having a lot in common does not always mean good compatibility when it comes to marriage. Just like couples of opposite personality does not mean they will have a bad marriage. For me, it wasn't until mid season five that they showed Sheldon had made enough progress to make his marriage to Amy, at some point, inevitable. And even then, there were periods and episodes that indicated he might not ever be ready. Of course, YMMV.

    And others do not. Leonard and Penny ending up together was telegraphed from early on in the series.

    That works both ways. Sheldon is tied to Leonard also. That was illustrated even in the last episode, when Sheldon was jealous of Leonard being chosen by Zack and Marissa to be the donor. There are more examples of Leonard being able to move on, and Sheldon not being able.

    If you want to read a terrific article on the Leonard/Penny/Baby drama go to screenrant.com article of Feb. 10 The writer Ana Dumaraog gives a very insightful view of the "Donation Oscillation" episode and then relates what is the crux of the issue. That maybe this will stir Penny & Leonard to finally sit down and openly talk about this issue instead of dancing around it. Penny has finally admitted she is torn by her decision and is disappointing the two best men in her life. As Penny contemplates her decision it will be more comfortable knowing that both her father and husband will support her. But the bigger issue remains on what is the primary driving force behind her stance on not wanting kids. This is what tptb must come up with in the next episodes.

    I remember Sheldon telling his mother that. But I've seen many shows where a busty blonde airhead was lusted after by a nerd and the nerd doesn't always get the girl. And that is what they both were made out to be at the beginning of the show.

    Yes, I have said this many times. Their barbed comments were funnier than the saccharine ones we get most of the time now.

    I tend to like the interactions between Sheldon and Leonard when Sheldon's not being an ass, when Sheldon lets his true feelings come through. IMO Leonard has always been the better friend (to the other), but that is also a product of his personality. I used to like Sheldon and Penny's interactions more when they were frenemies. Right now it seems a little bland between them for my taste. As far as Lenny goes I hardly recognize them these days. Only very few vestiges remain of the couple I once knew.

    Impartially considered, there's a important link between the two guys. Btw. I'm not always ironic.

    If the writers would actually show that in the last episodes in a serious, but above all funny way, I could personally say goodbye to the series. And no, I'm not going to add a "but" now.

    I could do that once, too. But now my emphasis is only on "could".

    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.

    True! Shamy was the surprise wedding/relationship. Sheldon was always asexual.

    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.

    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

    He's gotten great reviews for his recent Broadway performances. I think more of that might be on his mind.

    My kids loved him in the Muppet Movie. LOL. But seriously, I don't think he sees himself as a legend and won't want anyone else to either. I think he will go back to Broadway, where his heart is. He's got enough money that he doesn't have to work another day in his life is he doesn't want to, but I think that's what he'll do. I am reminded of Leonard Nimoy, who took his case to the people so to speak, when Star Trek ended and did all kinds of summer stock and regional theater for a few years. Of course, when he got a chance to put the ears back on he did, but that was his way of getting away from it. He played in Sherlock Holmes, Fiddler on the Roof, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, just anything to get away from Spock for awhile.

    My mistake, I wasn't addressing the "legend" comment. I was addressing this comment... He has and he was.

    I know you a die hard Jim Fan but winning Awards has nothing do with being a legend either. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ummm you need to check his credits and awards. He's already broken the mold.

    Personally I the entire cast, while perfectly adequate for a sitcom, top notch at times, doesn't have a truly great acting star among them. I'm delighted that they found something they were good at and got to make a ton of money to live on, but none of them are great actors as I see it. That was exactly my point to someone who brought up Sheldon when I commented something about Leonard being a nerd. He certainly would not.

    Well, good for you. As good as Jim may be good, but, he's definitely no Charleston Heston! In my opinion Mr Heston defines "Legend"! Jim's not even a Bob Newhart, who is a legend in the TV industry!

    Someone on a Facebook Group called Jim is a legend. Lol, sorry but while Jim is a decent or stellar actor I would not call him a legend IMO. I don’t even think Jim would consider himself one Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I have no problem with their being in each other's lives! I think that they need more separation than just a hallway! Yeah Beverly!

    Leonard said it best, 'He's kind of broken and I guess I am, too. We need each other.'

    I like Leonard as Sheldon's best friend. It doesn't bug me in the least to think they will always have a place in each others life and will always be there. I don't have the yearning to cut ties between them as some fan's do and I really enjoy their interactions.

    Sheldon was trying to get a girl from the first episode?
  37. 2 points
    I completely agree. They each found their perfect match in each other. Unconditional love at its finest. Before they met they were really broken people. Together they make a wonderful team that bring out the best in each other. I have no doubt that they will have a long, happy life together. Love that episode! Howard and Sheldon were hilarious together. Sheldon's face with the spitwad just cracks me up. Also Howard asking if that will be on the test because he doesn't think he can do that again. Love, Love, Love. Wish they made more funny episodes like this one. Makes me smile just thinking about it.

    They know each other so well, and are there for each other. They can tolerate each other so well because they accepted each other fully and know what they have to do to make it work. I believe Amy especially appreciates the growth in Sheldon since when she first met him.

    Agree...they have a ton in common. I enjoy this about them. They always have fun even in the most random ways. They seem to always be on the same page and really enjoy being around each other. I think both types of relationships can work. It makes a little easier when you have atleast have something in common. I think it is has always been about the nerd getting the girl. The nerds were trying to get the girl or a girl from the first episode...

    No, that hasn't ruined her. They just haven't written her well in a few years. The job makes her unhappy. It would be great if they had her doing something she liked.

    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

    Nah the man who took a shower at the Wolowitz’s a couple of weeks ago because Bernadette forced him to hold a child will have super sperm and be a fabulous dad , and childless Penny and Leonard will help them.

    What have they got to do with it? All the guys were portrayed as nerds. Leonard, too. Exactly. To me, when I started watching the show it was about these two friends and how everyone reacted to them and how they reacted to each other. I didn't care much about anyone else at all, Howard, Raj or Penny.

    That was a great one. When they were trying to stump him and he gagged up the spitball

    I think a lot of fans are not going to get a lot of things they wanted . Do i think the showrunners care? Nope. I don't. If anyone else does they have more faith in the writers, etc. than I do. I'm still holding out that the Nobel plot doesn't work out.
