  1. Yep , for me too. And they spent seasons developing his character growth ( and he has shown some growth ) but he had his epiphany because yet again someone had to point it out to him that he had messed up and had been a jerk. To me , the real growth would have been him , on his own , realising he had hurt his friends.

  2. We can only hope. At least she's getting the recognition of her talents as an actress. She's not just a pretty face anymore.

  4. Not quite sure who it was. Could have been all of them, or they just thought it funny. Sheldon was shamed for not trying to get laid, which is a form of reverse slut shaming.

  5. Of course we think that they'll grow old together an be happy for the rest of their lives. At least we don't have those writers trying to tell us differently.

  7. That's my observation too, based on what I see on social media and the internet in general.

  8. She sure knows how to be elegant, even in losing. However, I have heard some rumblings she may be up for an Emmy which might give her another shot.

  9. I'm not sure there are any popularity rankings for the character. Sheldon, (in his multiple iterations), has been popular with a lot of fans. He's also widely disliked by more than a few fans. The same can be said for most of the main cast; Penny included. Thanks to the show's writing there were many times Penny got put into a bad light and that certainly affected her popularity with certain fans. The unreasonable break-up with Leonard and the failed hookup with Raj are just a few of the examples of Penny being put into unlikeable situations. However, unlike Sheldon who was forever polarizing,

  12. True it may have been heartfelt at the time but we really do not know for sure if he meant it sincerely and kept his word or was it just lip service for the Nobel community. Think this is very true. The writers just did not find the right status of her character. First it was her committment phobias. then it was her job status, then it was her portrayal of the good wife, bad wife. Even at the end the writers could not give her the proper mix toward Leonard. Yes, she loved him but was still unsure about her pregnancy. Guess we just have to surmise that they lived happily ever after.

  15. I see the wild card regarding Penny as being Chuck Lorre. Penny as seen during the 12 year run of TBBT was much different than originally envisioned by Mr. Lorre. If Chuck had his way, the Penny character would probably have been more akin to a female Charlie Harper. This was evidenced in the original, (rejected), pilot. Fortunately, the character was reworked and recast. My personal perspective is that any time Penny did something that made her a questionable character it was due to some Chuck Lorre influence.

  16. Yeah , there were times they really took the snark too far. And I'm with you regarding Sheldon. Unpopular opinion but his Nobel speech didn't do much for me, as nice as it was.

  17. The writers didn't seem to know how to write for her character. They couldn't decide if she should be snarky towards her husband or supportive. As for Sheldon, he definitely wasn't my favorite character.

  18. From what I read in the various Facebook groups I joined ( not sure if it's really representative though) , Penny is the most liked character right after Sheldon who seems to be the favourite. I believe his Nobel speech redeemed the character ( not in my eyes but that's besides the point) . The main criticism I see regualarly regardind Penny is " she was nice at the start and ended up being a mean b*tch"

  20. I have to agree with you in this regard. Penny was put in a bad light several times besides the ones you mentioned: dating Stuart, using Leonard for sex and then saying it was a mistake, and when Raj lived with them the total indifference to Leonard's feelings. Despite all this I think Penny was a popular character especially with male viewers which I believe were the producers intentions in the early episodes. And as you state Penny was more human and endearing to fans in marrying Leonard unlike Sheldon who had his realization in the finale of the show.

  22. Yeah, this is false. I've been to two tapings and there weren't any cue cards in sight. All the actors have mentioned having, at times, their scripts handy, (or Jim having all his note cards in his pocket) like under cushions, behind cushions, in drawers, in refrigerators or stoves, behind different pieces of furniture, etc. to use in between takes. But, there aren't any cue cards.

  23. After watching the episodes the first time I thought Sheldon was irritating but tolerable. I liked especially in the early seasons when him and Penny went at it. That was joyful to see Sheldon getting some comeuppance once in awhile. But now seeing all the reruns of the seasons he really grates on me and I think how can a man that is a genius be so clueless in social interaction. And his repeated insults and remarks to Penny about her sexual history when he considers her one of his "dearest" friends is just disgraceful.

  24. I cannot say that I ever 'liked' Sheldon. I did find Sheldon 1.0 greatly entertaining. This character was gone by the beginning of Season 5 and his future iterations were mostly annoying and sometimes really difficult to watch. Original Sheldon was a unique character who was played masterfully by Jim Parsons. I know there are many fans that say the character had to evolve. Maybe that's right. I do know that the process he underwent on the show was often ill conceived and frequently unbelievable. At one point they had him going around calling people vegetables. Jeez!

  26. Which one of the writers was the complete mysoginist? Or was it all of them? I lost count of how many times Penny was slut-shamed, not to mention the constant jibes at her intelligence. Once again, the guys are excused for their non-stop attempts at getting laid. Except Sheldon, of course.

  29. I was mostly ambivalent about him in the first five seasons , I found him incredibly annoying yet entertaining ( most times), I even felt sorry for him a couple of times, thinking it must not be easy being him. Mid season 6 is when he really started to irk me ,up to a point that at the end of the seventh season , I simply couldn't stand him anymore . Granted , he got to become a better partner to Amy ( that's the only growth Ive seen in him but i'm very biased) after that but he kept on treating his friends like crap until the end !! Maybe that's why Leonard is my most liked character , he

  31. It might be worth noting the difference between 'favorite' character as opposed to most liked. In the above poll Sheldon pulls in almost 50% of the 'favorite' character vote. Penny ranks second and this could be seen as confirming the premise of this thread. I remember the original poll and I am sure I voted for Sheldon as my favorite. Sheldon 1.0 was far and away my favorite TBBT character. By 2012 we had begun the transformation to Sheldon 2.0 which, while quirky, was frequently more adolescent in his behaviors and often simply annoying. Also, the 'Sheldon is evolving' meme made th

  34. Think this may be true. As I have mentioned previously, I have seen some stories about that finale episode of season 4 where Raj and Penny end up in bed. It was said that Chuck Lorre insisted on this scene be put in over the objections of some writers and cast. It was a very unpopular episode and many fans were upset to see this scene. I don't know how true this is but in between the fourth and fifth season the writers had to write that season five premiere because of all the backlash of the episode.
