  1. Oh you youngster you. 😂 I knew them all in their younger years. Although I knew Christine from her Theatre work. And from TV on Cybill.

  2. hokie3457, I've enjoyed reading your stories as well. I'd put your writing right up there with Tensor. There are so many writers who's stories I enjoy reading. Some are Shamy writers. But I draw the line at shenny stories.

  3. How mistaken can one be though? Remember Sheldon's words "When I opened the door, I saw my father having relations with another woman." Seems pretty well established to me. I really hope we won't see George in bed with another woman.

  5. I got a kick out of one interview she did she stated when she travels after all the wonderful roles she acted in she is only recognized as "Leonard's mother" I guess a tribute to the worldwide popularity of TBBT

  6. Tensor is one of the great story writers. I've read everything he's posted numerous times. He and other writers keep me content with their stories. He even finds the time to do a great job keeping us straight here.

  10. Yeah, that can't have helped. Reminds me of a few years ago (2016) when she lost Chester and Petey-pie within a week of each other in January, right after she filed for divorce. Although Norman's death seems more emotional for her.

  11. I would think Doris Day would be sometime this year, but as for the exact time, I don't know. I have no idea about Role Play, I know it's been announced, but I don't know where they are in discussion and/or pre-production.

  12. The reason is spelled out in the title, The Hofstadter Isotope. Leonard mentioned it in the first episode. Leonard: "...I just want to know why Penny’s more interested in Stuart than me. We’re practically the same guy." It was the idea that Penny really wanted Leonard, so going out with Stuart would be like going out with Leonard (Hence the name of the episode. For those who don't know, an isotope is the same element, with different amounts of neutrons and protons), I'm quite sure that if Leonard and Penny's first date had gone well (she felt inferior because of her lack of schooling) she would have invited him back for "coffee". Remember her reaction to him once he came back from the arctic.

  14. it didn't bother me that much either , it just felt a bit forced to me. Bold part: I choose to see that as a testament to who L/P are as individuals and as a couple. Leonard's always been the most sensible one amongst the guys ( not that he had much competition, mind you LOL ) and Penny can be very perceptive and offer sage advice. To me it makes a lot of sense their friends would turn to them, they're the most mature adults in the group. Of course I would have loved to see more of them and see them get meatier plots, Penny especially but clearly the writers had other ideas. Penny , the female lead character and for a very long time, most popular character after Sheldon, wasn't treated as such in the later seasons, it's baffling.

  18. Here’s an article on James Hong. He’s still acting at 92 and has over 400 credits in his career. On Big Bang he was the owner of the Chinese restaurant the guys went to several times. The one where they had Mobster sauce, where he proposed a plan to drop one of the dumplings to satisfy Sheldon or where Leonard and Penny left when they saw Sheldon arguing with him, in mangled Chinese. He was in Big Trouble in Little China and Airplane( the officer who commits Haru Kari, from listening to Ted Striker’s stories. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/james-hong-an-actors-guide-to-longevity/

  19. Norman was her life. She had him for comfort when she divorced Ryan. She didn't have him for this one. Sure, she has her other animals. But Norman was special to her.

  21. But wasn't it established in TBBT that Sheldon caught him and another woman in a compromising position. It was when Sheldon was telling Penny why he knocks 3 times.

  23. She has Zosia there right now. Once TFA2 is done filming, she will probably go back to her New York (Hudson Valley) home. After she leaves, that might be a good time for Johnny to visit.

  24. I was wondering if anyone was staying with her because you don’t really see Bri there in Kaley’s Instagrams and that home she built is large, and somewhat secluded, so being there alone would be hard on anyone. Bri seems to be a good sister but she also has a life of her own so I don’t think it is reasonable for her to have to spend all her time with Kaley, especially if she is seeing someone romantically. I don’t think it is a good thing to leave people alone who are going through bad times in their life, she needs her friends more than ever and since the weather in the Midwest is bad lately, it might be a good time for Johnny to take a vacation in California.

  25. Yeah, that confused me as well. It seemed the writers were trying to make her more slutty in the early seasons. I never thought of it like that. It's almost as if her dates with Stuart were sort of a dry run for her dates with Leonard. I do agree that see would have invited him in for coffee had the dated ended better. I mean they were in bed together when Beverly first visited.

  26. That's a good question. Personally, I believe that they are in contact. They have been close friends for years. They have been there for each other for support. I'm thinking more in behind the scenes.

  27. Her posts do seem to hint at some deeply sad feelings since her divorce and those feelings don’t seem to be improving. Hopefully her friends are being there for her and they will help her through the feelings she is having. I wonder if her and Johnny are in contact with each other.

  28. Could never understand this plotline. Why would she be interested in Stuart? And then after the date invite Stuart in for coffee or for something else?

  33. I'll just have to tell myself that those heartfelt moments happened off-screen , that's where the characters had their best stories at times. I had never thought about Bernie like that but now that you've mentionned it, it sounds like something she could do.

  34. A lot of things on TBBT would have benefited from more onscreen development but that's not realistic for a 22-23 minute program. Friendly banter and snark are the multi-vitamins of the sitcom world. Let's face it; Chuck Lorre doesn't develop shows that are meant to be touching, insightful, or socially relevant to our everyday lives. He takes the path of least resistance to what he thinks will get laughs. Ideally, as she's married to Leonard it would be nice if he were her best friend. If he's not holding that spot then it seems to fall to Amy. We all know that under her bubbly, squeaky persona there is a mean edge to Bernadette. She's a lot like Raj and would stab a friend in the back if she thought it would benefit her.

  38. Yeah in the end it's all that matters. I still think they went too far just for the laughs.they could have picked something that was Amy's style without making her look ridiculous ( just my opinion). Nevermind the swans, she looked like a pile of toilet roll to me . But hey this is the Lenny thread and let's not get off topic 😋 Just watched " Higg's Boson" at lunchtime. I like a jealous Penny " Well a lot of people can't"

  41. Hi. I have been lurking on this forum. I have been so annoyed by this season and so annoyed by this particular episode that I felt I had to post. I agree with most of what has been said here about how the show has completely changed direction in a way that is not good. A few things: How does someone with a PhD in physics not realise what will happen if you push someone twice as big as you in the chest? In the real world, someone who has spent most of their childhood being physically bullied will probably take up a martial art or at least spend time at the gym getting in shape, or possibly take an assertiveness course. (This is what character development really is.) I don't get the people on the other forum (or viewers in general) who think that Amy's come-ons to Penny just means that she wants Penny to like her. In the beginning, when Amy was calling Penny her "bestie", it was like that. Now, she is making obvious sexual comments to her that cannot be seen as anything but creepy (considering that Penny doesn't seem to be turned on by them). How can someone be so out of touch as to not recognize a blatant sexual come on. ("I want to be your cellmate." Really?.) And getting back to the character development theme - if Amy really wanted to fit in with the popular girls, she could have worked on developing this part of her personality years ago. She is intelligent enough to be able to observe and copy other people's behavior. (She's a neurobiologist FFS - in a way, part of her job involves studying behavior). And how hard would it be for her to have picked up a copy of Vogue? The impression that Amy gave when she first showed up on the TBBT was that she didn't care about these thing because she wanted to focus on science/her intellect. Why would this suddenly change? If the writers want to show character development - let them do it realistically. Speaking as a 40-something lady, I can tell you that by the time you've hit your mid-20s or early 30s, if you continue to remain an antisocial geek it's because a) you have autism or asperger's, and even then you will probably have somewhat better social skills than you did when you were younger or 2) you just don't care. I'm a brainy geek with an interest in science, but I also work out out every day, take care of my appearance, dress to flatter my body and have a decent social life. (I've had people ask me if I was a cheerleader in high school.* NOT! - so I can see how Bernadette and Amy could be mistaken about Penny.) I am also very happily married - to another geek who plays online games but also does kung fu (sparring with real people, not on a computer screen). This is what happens when people grow up. Someone like Penny, on the other hand, might be taking continuing ed courses or going back to college part time so she could learn all of the stuff that she missed in high school because she was too busy partying. Whatever your background, after a while you realize that a lack of skills -whether social or intellectual, hold you back, and you try to remedy that. The one thing I liked in that episode was Amy's "Careful, or you'll wind up in a cornfield" comment. I liked the sarcasm; it shows intelligence. The only character that I think has developed in a realistic way on TBBT is Howard. Yes, he used to be a womanizing jerk, but it was pretty clear that he was all talk and no action and underneath it all was insecure around women. His meeting and getting engaged to Bernadette seems to have been a natural progression. (I would like to see more about his upcoming mission on the ISS.) Oh, yeah, Raj's continued mutism. It might be funny to some viewers, but it just doesn't make sense. The man is surrounded by scientists. His own father is a doctor. And this kind of thing is right up Amy's alley. Surely by now he would have been referred to someone who could help him. I would also like to see Sheldon actually being intelligent again, instead of behaving like a child or like a bully. I think that in TV programs, characters need to develop, but this needs to be done in a realistic way. Good examples of character development were seen on Friends. For example, Chandler feeling safer making a commitment to the point where he is comfortable and happy with marriage and children or Rachel's career development and her increasing assertiveness. Completely changing a character's personality so you can squeeze in more jokes is not character development. *I realize that my profile says that I am in the UK, but I have spent most of my life living in the US, hence the cheerleader comments.

  42. What in the world are they doing to the Penny character? We now have a drunken, thieving, parasitical bimbo. It seems that every episode they come up with another reason to dislike her. Take her back to the way she was in the first few seasons. If this is supposed her deteriorating because of breaking up with Leonard and seeing him with other women then for the show's sake, have them get back together. As it is going the only character I like less is Amy, because of some of her creepy stalker comments she makes to Penny.
