  1. One thing we have to remember is that Kaley is an actress. As her career goes along, we are finding she is a very good actress. Right now she is “playing” the role of a working woman immersed in her job, far away from home. From the looks of things, she is without her usual core support system (most particularly her sister Bri). I am sure that this is painful in a different way than with Ryan. There were many things that we will never know about with divorce no. 1 and whatever demons Ryan was dealing with. With Karl, I’m sure things have been happening for a while. As far as being loving toward each other on SM even recently, that could very well be true. They may still love each other “deeply” (we accept and believe that is true with Kaley and Johnny, why can’t that also be true with Kaley and Karl?). Note that (I have not looked since Saturday) that they are both present in each other’s Instagram feeds. Remember she totally erased Ryan immediately when they announced their separation. As much as we love seeing her and love to be talking about her, we need to be patient and let things play out as they will. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  2. I regularly watch my favorite episodes. I can't (and I don't want to) move on from this show. TBBT will always accompany me.

  3. They've all said and done mean things to each other, I think we can all agree on that. The way I see it ( and it's a very biased and overly simplistic way to look at things ) is like this : I see 5 people ( I'm not including Raj 'cause I still don't know where I stand with him) who are mostly kind and good but who can be jerks at times and one jerk who can be nice at times. A few good deeds here and there didn't redeem the character in my eyes. Like I've just rewatched 7*22 , Professor Proton's funeral and the lesson for him was to learn and appreciate the people around him. He learnt nothing or so little. Granted he got better with Amy , he learnt a bit about empathy and how to offer half-arsed apologies.

  4. You must be kidding yourself ... Now I watch TBBT another (probably already 20) time from the beginning, I'm now in season 8 and so far in almost every episode Sheldon is bulling somebody. Making an innocent face at the same time. From being humiliated in his childhood, he has become the "bullier" of his best and only tolerant friends. Always and everywhere, Sheldon is the most important - Stuart's bookstore burned down - and he tells him that his life is collapsing because Leonard is engaged and wants to move out. Poor injured Sheldon. Amy goes with Leonard to Arizona to get him - and he tells her: "what are you here for?" I can exchange and exchange this way. Sorry, but especially from season 8-9, Sheldon is just a normal self-righteous asshole. And believe me, Asperger doesn't excuse him.

  8. Watching TBBT the first time I thought it was comical hearing Sheldon's psychotic rants and in the early seasons the gang stood up to him, especially Penny, but now they all seem to tolerate him and ignore him for the most part. However, now after watching multiple reruns of the seasons Sheldon has become to me such an annoying pain in the ass I wonder how he keeps his friends with all his insults, condescenion, and obnoxiousness. I know this is only a TV show but in the real world Sheldon would "Die Sheldon Die" And we cannot forget Sheldon diabolically manipulating Leonard with his sweater and the blackmail of Priya and Leonard just to get his way in the roommate agreement. Does a real friend do these things??

  10. From TV Line <full article in the link> Performer of the Year: The 20 Finalists In a year when we wanted to spend as little time in the real world as possible, there was certainly no shortage of stellar TV performances that helped us escape. For the past 12 months, our Performer of the Week column has honored the small screen’s most breathtaking work, recognizing actors from broadcast, cable and streaming series as they moved us to tears or brought on belly laughs. But now, we face a big question: Who’s the Performer of the Year? In the list below, we’ve narrowed down this excellent year of acting to 20 finalists, which will double as a “ballot” of sorts. On Friday, Dec. 18, we will crown one of the nominees (and only one!) our 2020 Performer of the Year... Kaley Cuoco, The Flight Attendant HBO Max’s adaptation of the Chris Bohjalian novel would not work if we weren’t on some level rooting for Cassie Bowden, the poster girl for extremely bad decisions. But to her credit, Cuoco makes the character as sympathetic as she is recklessly impulsive; Cassie’s near-constant anguish make us want to have the morally casual alcoholic’s back. On the lighter side, whenever Cassie tries to rationalize (or conceal) her exploits with gal pals Annie (Zosia Mamet) and Megan (Rosie Perez), Cuoco leans into her vaunted sitcom skill set and trades deliciously tart banter. First Class work, all around.

  11. Johnny and Kaley called into a patient at the Kentucky Children’s Hospital today. It was similar to a zoom call as they were in separate locations(Kaley was home). It can be found, until late Thursday, on Kaley’s stories. ETA: Johnny added it to his stories on Thursday.

  16. I totally agree. Sheldon`s quotes since I think 7th season and his behaviour are full of disrespect for everybody. Since I have watched TBBT multiple times, it is for me not funny any more... It is always only all about Sheldon 🙄 ,too much Sheldon-centric.

  22. I've said this before, but I can pinpoint exactly when I could no long consider Sheldon's words or actions innocencent for me. Season 6, episode 8. During his conversation with Leonard about Penny and the British guy. When he said something about Penny thinking she was a chicken pecking for corn, and then mimed Penny performing oral sex, they couldn't go back to claiming he didn't understand. When they tried that, it was no longer believable for me.

  23. Can you provide one example of Sheldon being bullied by any of the other main cast? Pehaps, Penny, at some point stood up to Sheldon and made him do somethhing. Though being compelled to do something you should do anyway is not being bullied.

  24. 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.

  28. I just thought you were upset, because you keep saying you’re moving on, or are done, but keep answering. Lorre had previously decided the show would end, ( and this wasn’t through the grapevine, it was actual quotes) if either Kaley, Jim, or Johnny left. Jim decided to leave, triggering that decision. Is there something wrong with Jim deciding to leave? Nope. But, there no denying it was his decision to leave, that brought the show to an end. If Johnny or Kaley had decided to leave, that would have triggered the end of the show.

  29. In no way do I fault JP for wanting to move on with his career. He wants to pursue other projects and opportunities and I hope he finds success and fulfillment in all of them. That does not mean I cannot simultaneously attribute the ending of TBBT to his decision not to continue. There is no ambiguity involved. Chuck Lorre, (and the rest of the cast), were prepared to do a season 13 until JP announced he would not return. Not only did that end the show. It put a lot of people out of work. No doubt many of the production staff found other jobs. No doubt some of them did not. This is a dilemma faced by successful people in any number of career fields. Their decisions impact many people and I have no doubt JP considered this and made a tough choice. TBBT without fresh ideas needed to end. Too many Shamy oriented, and juvenile Sheldon dominated, stories were lowering the quailty of the episodes. This had been the case for several seasons. Agreed. YS is not TBBT. However, JP is still tied to Sheldon. He still benefits professionally and financially from the character. The character he said he wanted to move on from to pursue other ventures.

  30. I realize that you are a JP fan and you feel the need to defend him but I do not blame him for TBBT demise. Though there are many people who do. And we do not know what conversations went on with the cast and Jim. Before Chuck Lorre pulled the plug it seemed everyone involved wanted to continue with at least one more season. But the original point I was making was the writers focused so much on the SheldonShamy storyline that I believe the other cast members were sacrificed and their storylines were rushed into season 12 to gain closure.

  32. Hey dear Big Bang Theory fans, I just finished watching the show this Tuesday after watching the complete series throughout the last three to four months. As I am from Germany, I obviously watched it in german synchronisation. The show gave me so much joy and happiness throughout these months of the year, I cannot even explain. And, well, now that I am finished watching, I feel like there's is an emptiness inside of me, as if something really important has gone. I mean that sounds like really stupid and I never felt that before when finishing a television series, but I hope you get what I mean. Don't get me wrong, I am not depressed or so but I feel like very sad. How did you deal with the end and how did you feel about it? Thank you for answering! Simon

  33. If I can share a few thoughts here about Penny’s character growth, not that the growth is nonexistent, there was growth. But there are a few things to add. There are things we cannot change for the sake of comedy that Big Bang Theory writers chose to use, like the fine line they use to dance around between giving each other a hard time and bullying each other. But I do wish they had taken some time to develop Penny a bit more, particularly with the issues that came up on Season 12. This is not just because of my love for my Lenny ship but because there was a lot of growth for her character that was, for the most part, played down. We knew Penny had commitment issues because of her experiences in the past: seeking validation through relationships with other men which probably eradicated from her dad wanting a boy and so on. But once she shifted her career and started maturing, it felt a little incomplete to experience this growth in her character. The writers left a lot of it to be implied or to have occurred in the behind the scenes when things shifted to focusing on Sheldon (but that is another topic). Even if its through comedy I would have loved to see a few of the following things: 1) Acknowledgment that when she decided maybe I do not want to have kids, that it came from the commitment issues she has always had. She was in love and comfortable in the marriage with Leonard and changes in the relationship have always taken Penny a long time. "I have not wrapped my head around it", she mentions towards the end. Thank you writers but this discussion needed to start in Season 11 perhaps? They had discussed kids and she had said someday, they were in a future plan. But when Leonard mentioned a timeline, this is when it became real for her and she panicked. They rushed it through the last season. 2) The relationship with her sister. 3) Money. Penny for a long time lived under financial insecurity. Leonard even went through her bills when they were NOT dating. It made no sense that when she started making big money, Leonard seemed to not be part of the conversation. Even hiding a bank account. Not that I am implying that Leonard should have taken over her money but some sort of discussion could have happened (even if they included Sheldon) were Penny seeks advice on how to handle her new salary and her debt. 4) The relationship with her mom. We got a glimpse of it during the wedding but she seemed to never reach out. Same with Bernadette. The only one of the girls that got to explore their mom was Amy and it was a given that she was used for comedy. And well, she had been the trauma factor for Amy. The “healthier” side of the parents never got addressed for anybody but even less for Penny. 5) Boundaries on her sex record vs. bully storyline. I can deal with the bully storyline, except Season 12 Episode 1. Leonard will never be one to flinch when Penny shows affection. The comedy could have taken place in so many other directions. Won’t go there anymore. Back to the topic… I think it was very disrespectful for her closest friends to continue to put Penny down for her past. I loved when she told Sheldon that she had a word for how promiscuous he could be with himself. But there was never a stop. The writers dealt with Howard’s past adventures better than they did with Penny. They gave Howard the opportunity to grow from it and face consequences when it played a role in his present. With Penny, there was never that opportunity. Not only was it used to put down Leonard: they had Penny constantly dealing with it. It was clear she was committed to her relationship with her husband and that she loved him. But the “comedy” behind this never acknowledged that she was now in her 30’s and not as reckless as when she started the show. 6) Drinking. As a viewer, my understanding was that Penny used to drink a lot because she had a lot of stress, issues and she was in her 20’s. The “normal” pastime that is considered “popular”. As a contrast to all the guys. But as she got older, drinking wine was something she would do occasionally. Writers kept using it as if she continued to drink excessively. She was not and she was dedicated to her marriage and her job. They even had Bernadette baby proofing the licor in her house. Hope this is not too long. I’ve been pondering on these characters. I will continue to rewatch all the seasons. But in 2020, I keep wondering what other storylines we could have explored in the show if these had been addressed differently for Penny. I love her character.

  34. Hello, Late to the game but I have missed this place. This pandemic has hit the world and I have found myself rewatching the series. It helps to laugh and enjoy characters that I love... out of everything that has been taking place in the world. I have also found myself doing edits of the Big Bang Theory. Might share if anyone is interested. Hope everyone is keeping safe!

  37. I hadn’t heard that one. At Comic-Con that year, Bill Prady did say that whatever side you came down on(whether they did or didn’t sleep together) that you should be happy with the resolution. From the reactions, I’d say Bill was wrong

  39. Yeah, you're right. It wouldn't have been a good idea to continue the show further on, 12 seasons are enough and it was a good decision of Jim Parsons to finally pull the line. Now we get some fantastic 12 seasons and a wonderful finale!

  41. This was before Amy's transformation. At this point in time (mid season four), she was still mostly the original Amy. She didn't drink either, nor was she interested in sex, among other things. Those came about in the second half of season four, as she spent more and more time with Bernadette, and especially Penny. So, I don't see this as an episodic error, more as the before of the Before and After Amy. And now back to writing fan fic.
