Okay guys, FWI I was at the taping a couple of days ago. Tensor did such a beautiful, detailed taping report that I didn’t feel the need to say anything. But I’ve seen in the discussion thread (that I usually avoid BTW since Shamy fans are not well loved over there!) much discussion - by people who were not at the taping- of how terrible Sheldon was to Amy in this episode.
So here’s a little bit extra of the Shamy portion of this episode. As a Shamy first and foremost (but I love Lenny second), I didn’t see that Sheldon was so terrible to Amy. And this is the episode Jim is clearly speaking about in this article. And I completely agree with Jim!!!!!
Sheldon and Amy are their “adorkable” selves in this ep. It is clearly shown how much Amy understands Sheldon. They have several scenes together and are so cute watching the PP show with each other. It’s cute when Sheldon realizes that he likes the show, and Amy tries to help him with his jealousy.
But when Amy tells him there are certain things she won’t do or suggest because of Sheldon’s reactions, Sheldon is very upset. He’s so upset, he even talks about it with the guys (one of the cafeteria scenes). He feels bad for Amy and tells the guys that he doesn’t want their relationship to be like that. Ahh
So the rest of the show, Sheldon is trying to show Amy that he can change. He tries really hard to be supportive and not jealous that Amy got to be on the TV show. And again, Amy sees right through him but appreciates how hard he is trying. This is the growth Jim is talking about in the article. Sheldon ain’t perfect and never will be. But he’s working on his issues!
Thought you might like to know that there is a little cheek kiss sitting on the sofa In the tag
. (and Amy says I love you). I bet that was supposed to be a lip kiss, but Mayim had posted a few days before that she had a cold and had on a mask She was blowing her nose between takes, so no lip kissing this ep! Mayim and Jim were laughing a lot with each other between takes. They appear to be such good friends!
It’s always fun to see how everyone else interprets the story when the show actually airs!
