    There’s two things I’ve kind of wanted to see for the Leonard/Penny relationship and one was addressed with this last taping. 


    I’ve wanted them to show that Penny isn’t with Leonard just to settle, or for stability, financial or otherwise. We learn that she’s very set financially, and doing great with a stable career. This makes it clear that she’s with Leonard because she wants to be, she just loves him.

    THANK YOU!! This is perfect. This post is excellent. 100%.

  2. I am quite excited for them to have something bigger to argue about - things have been going too swimmingly for them! A little fire makes things interesting for me, so this is great. I have no idea what Clerks 3 is... but either way, it sounds like a great episode. I do feel sort of like this'll be one of those 'mention acting for an episode then forget about it for a while' things - but maybe it has something to do with future plots. Who knows. I'm just going to be playing 'spot the sexy painting' for all future episodes.

  3. While Penny in no nun and Leonard knows that I think it might have been better if she had put her acting skills to work and pretended the money scene was a first.

    Isn't that worse though? Just lying to him? Maybe for him it would be nicer but there's a guilt about pretending you haven't already done that with someone else. 

  4. Just going to respond because... I don't actually know. I wasn't going to. But anyway! 


    Here's the thing. I did find this season to be getting kinda boring  because everything felt SO UN-COMEDY. Like, I didn't watch the Christmas episode for about a month because it all felt so pointless to continue watching. Though I suppose being stressed and my vacationing lung did color my opinions. Shamy were moving unnaturally fast and everything else was static. I actually wanted L/P to have an argument or something just to change things up. So okay I do get that this season has fallen flat in comparison to previous seasons. But within that there have been some great moments exploring another dimension of their relationship. They did tackle the money issue; perhaps not on a huge scale but they agreed on something and learnt what not to do. I thought that was nice. Also I don't see why people though the bed money scene was ruined? We all know Penny's no nun - most things that involves sex she's probably done before. Nothing wrong with that. She wants to do that with Leonard now - yeah he's disheartened that she's already done it but it's not like they put the money away, he probably showed her some real fun on all that dollar! Yes we've seen that Leonard has taken her off her "pedestal" but it has still been a thing for a while. We're learning the deeper stuff - truly discovering those 'little things' about these characters on a different level. 


    Perhaps the view is different for me - when I come on here to read a tonne of posts of people saying they're unhappy, you do think "well that's incredibly negative" and it kind of makes me sad. Obviously you don't have to be happy about EVERYTHING but... it was one of the reasons I stopped visiting here. It's disheartening to see so much negativity and yes, complaining, so often. Maybe that's just me as a person trying to find the positive in everything even when others don't. 


    I don't really feel the need to respond to all those points but I just wanted to put that out there. It DOES often seem very negative and almost like other ships don't matter as much. I feel that was about some Shamy fans too, so it's not just a Lenny thing. I went into that thread a few times and was like... no this isn't for me at all. People do discuss positive things here but it seems very little in comparison - there's beauty in (almost) everything. I like S8 being slightly more chilled out for them - it means we don't use up all the super exciting stuff too soon! 


    I am excited to see the canvas too. I can't wait to see Lisa Kudrow Penny's Mom ask "that's a nice painting - what is it?"

  5. Why bored? "Boring married couple" - yes. But I think a lot of people go through that, whether they realize it or not. My best friend did and it was hilarious because they didn't see it for so long. But bored? I think Penny's bored when she's watching Star Wars for the fifteenth time and Leonard's bored when he's watching Sex and the City... but the kind of bored that you're okay with being bored because the other person isn't. But I don't see why they would be bored overall?

  6. So Kaley's hand on the script, showing her wedding ring meant nothing? That was sort of a little sneaky and maybe a tiny bit cruel to do to us.


    I'm sorry, what were you expecting? Why is it cruel? 

  7. Dumb question but I was wondering, being a big TV star on the most popular sitcom on TV, does she have to get permission to change her look. If she decided to get a butch haircut is that alright and they would just put a wig on her to do the show. Just curious.

    Contracts do tend to have a 'hair clause' e.g. if you plan on doing something drastic you have to let them know. For her character it wouldn't be much of an issue aside from them wanting her to stay within the 'pretty blonde girl next door look' - mine required getting permission to so much as cut it a few inches, once I didn't tell them I was dying my hair brown but meh they got over it I was 16 what they gonna do 


    Ha ha...yes, with "paint" i mean colour, sorry my English :) Yes, usually people get darker after becoming grow-up but not everybody. Well, in this last picture you post he colour looks more natural :)

    The wonders of hair dye advancements :) I like her ombre hair it's cool 

  8. And their tongues are clean even after thy've just lisked their arse?


    Well you know when you kiss an animal you always wait until right after they've licked their ass to get the perfect kiss 


    And considering we touch so many dirty objects, put our hands to our mouths and faces, etc, it's probably more hygienic to kiss an animal straight after they lick their own ass anyway

  9. Even if it was just a quick peck, and just purely to shut her up, that's still exciting because he initiated it and chose to do it :D Shelly's gonna need to be re-readin' that book

  10. Just because she can't express her level of commitment as easily, does it mean that she isn't ready to be committed?


    Like in last nights episode, she had her locket on when the girls were being 'grown up' - she considers her relationship and commitment to Leonard something that makes her an adult and it's something she very happily accepts. And that locket represents that they got through four months without each other and a part of him being by her heart the whole time.

  11. Omg I went back so many posts to see that freakin table. It's a rather pretty table actually...


    I never thought of the 'break up' as a serious thing, rather Sheldon's reflex and something that had Amy not intervened in her own way he'd have stopped it from happening anyway. I reckon Sheldon will grow to enjoy that table after learning some fact about how like… Stan Lee owns a dining table. Ha I dunno! 


    Just so excited for this SIK *shimmies*

  12. I don't see how Penny and Leonard are in different places in the relationship. They both just express it differently which is understandable. Penny physically said to him "I don't want to break up with you" - does she need to prance around with him all the time to show her commitment? It's the little things like her coming over to his apartment comfortably and naturally, taking an interest in what he and the guys are doing even if she finds it sad or doesn't understand it, that kind of stuff. And on a bigger level, what she struggled with most when leaving her job was thinking that Leonard didn't support her. Those kind of things. So if this season they seem a bit 'off' then perhaps we're watching two different shows because those two have really been growing into their relationship this season and sharing some wonderful moments. Her career and their relationship don't have to be at the forefront of everything, they're not 13.

  13. Just like all other human beings and users of Instagram and Twitter, etc, she is allowed to post what she wants to, how often she wants, etc. Yes she gets more attention from it because of her job and status but if she wanted to be receiving that kind of attention then there's a lot of other stuff she could be doing. What she posts and what the DM and other people write about it are two completely different things. 


    Also how is all the doggy kisses and stuff 'gross'. Nothing wrong with loving your animals. They have cleaner tongues than humans anyway. I always have horse/cat/dog kisses and its quite nice knowing you're loved by a cute lil animal!

  14. I though this was the Leonard & Penny thread not the 'omg it's becoming Shenny!' thread.


    To me, it looks like Sheldon is the one who can see Penny and Leonard moving forward more than anybody else, and that scares him because to him that means he won't have Leonard there for much longer. He formed a special bond with Penny while Leonard was away so I think that's just something else for him to try and cling to in the change he can see. 


    And what is wrong with Sheldon supporting Penny?! He found something he can relate to - even if it is refusing the be chalk monitor because he wanted to be a Physicist. Plus Penny sided with him on the element thing. He's allowed to be supportive of her. I don't see why that's OOC. Maybe he thinks her career is stupid and a failure but he understands the whole idea of 'this is what I want and I'm going to put everything into it'. 


    Surely if we all ship Leonard and Penny here we should be happy that things are moving forward for them rather than making up these pessimistic ideas and getting in a kerfuffle over nothing.

  15. I wonder why Penny didn't talk to Leonard before making the decision to quit CF like Leonard talked to her about going to the North Sea. I mean they are in a relationship and shouldn't they have talked before making such a big decision?


    Because it was a decision she made for herself and wanted to do alone and probably knew Leonard wouldn't think it's the best idea. And I'm guessing 'I'm quit yesterday' and 'you did the right thing last night' - she maybe did it after he proposed to her in her heightened state. 


    This is good because that entire uniform sucked ha

  16. I think Leonard's initial thought that her quitting was a bad idea simply stemmed from the fact that it's something he couldn't imagine doing - like he said at the end. Molly just said it's like when Rachel quit her job at the coffee shop in Friends to get the fear. My friend quit her job because she was going nowhere with it and we were all a bit wary of this but actually she'd made the right decision. It's probably the best thing to do if you feel like you're going nowhere and it looks like Penny's finally taking some proper action into focusing on her acting career and taking that somewhere. I really think she did a good thing there and I get why Leonard thought it was a bad idea. 


    Aaaaaand I'm glad that she tells him he done the right thing the night before and that they didn't make a massive deal out of it! She acknowledges what happens and lets him know things are fine between them, I'm happy :) 


    They've put themselves back on the right track, Sheldon is always going to be like their little kid - gives them practice for the day they have a real one.
