  1. Count me in for Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler :-)
  2. Yes! I totally agree. Overall, Sheldon picked the fight and knew questioning Amy's scientific integrity would irritate her and get her to stay and she fell into his trap. Plus I think she really wanted to stay anyway. But during the argument, they totally went tit for tat. Sheldon likes being a theoretical physicist and sees himself as Leonard's superior, but he also relishes a good experiment and Amy was able to use the fact that she has the experimental cred, not him, to get under his skin. It's that precise moment that's captured in the gif. I love that they're able to challenge and provoke and excite each other pretty evenly here
  3. Yay! This was my #4 too. This was the scene where I knew this season was going to be a joy for Shamy shippers. Perfect gif choice. I love Amy's self satisfied look of knowing she knows how to get under Sheldon's skin. I love Sheldon's insulted and turned on face. Perfect!
  4. Holy crap. I have 16 awesome things that I couldn't include. In no particular order ... - Talking about sharing a bed - “Because I love you, you’re dessert.” - Sharing a bed their first night living together - Sheldon flirts with Amy during the Comicon episode. “It’s long isn’t it.” - Banter about “surprises” while Sheldon is making brunch - “You’re so cute.” In bed before Sheldon tells Amy he’s going to learn how to unicycle. - Amy sings Soft Kitty in English, German, Mandarin … and Navajo? - Amy daydreams about sexy train conductor Sheldon - Hot grammar Skype call - Ubbidubbi/Klingon argument/make up - Proposal (couldn’t put it in top 10 … yet) - Shamy dirty talk - Sheldon tells Amy he likes waking up next to her. - Zones of privacy. - Fun with flags in 10.7 - Sheldon tries to seduce Amy in her lab
  5. I really didn’t like the Amy Meemaw line but I’m gonna let that one go because I also don’t think it’s consistent with how Amy usually comes across. I’ll take the point of her saying it in a defensive moment of rage. I think she sees Sheldon as quite a catch: didn’t want him to look too sexy with his new hair cut, wanted to show him off at her aunt’s party, thought anyone could fall in love with his face, was nervous about Alex, etc. etc. I’m not sure Amy was worried only about Ramona. The ketchup line implies that she’s worried Sheldon might actually cheat, not because he’s seeking it out but because he has a stirred up sex drive and can easily be tempted (which is an odd idea to me). That implies a trust issue, but I can also see it as a momentary irrational insecurity that comes when you’re in love and far away and facing a new threat that you’re not used to. To me it seems like something Sheldon and Amy need to work out to have a healthy relationship. I’m away from my husband for work a lot, and I think he’s pretty adorable, but we certainly don’t worry about each other when we’re away. Of course, my husband is more clued in than Sheldon, but it still seems to be something they need to come to an understanding about. It may be as easy as a quick clear the air conversation so they know they are on the same page. Both Sheldon and Amy expressed concerns about this so it seems they need to be clear that they are not going to slip and fall into someone else’s genitals while they are apart.
  6. I too was shocked by the finale, and I was spoiled. There’s something I find unsettling about it even a few days later. I’ve watched just the final plane ride and proposal over, but I don’t think I’ll watch the rest of the episode again. Watching Amy’s expression over Skype looking at her boyfriend chumming up with another woman in their apartment made me feel quite bad for her. It’s hard to watch jealous insecure Amy particularly when it’s coupled with jokes in the episode of Ramona being more attractive. There’s something that stings about it. Also, that ketchup line was super hilarious on its own, but it seems to belie a lack of trust in Sheldon and a somewhat odd view of his sexuality. There’s something about the innocence of Sheldon & Amy’s relationship that I really respond to, so this felt a little bit like a gut punch and a violation of that (not on Sheldon’s part of course, but it was still unsettling to watch). But I guess that was the point. I’m sure they’ll work it out, but it leaves more questions for me than it answers. I think how both Sheldon and Amy respond in the first episode of season 11 will be very telling, and I hope will make me feel much better about the situation. As a piece of writing, it was a really good episode. It was definitely a writing risk, and shocking and created a good cliffhanger and was very funny and a great ensemble episode. They can also certainly use this to explore elements of Shamy’s relationship next season. I think there are some trust (on both sides) and independence issues that they need to work out, and I hope the writers will explore that next season. It definitely sets up new plots and relationship dynamics, which will be great for the show. But still, from this shipper’s perspective, it was hard to watch. Molaro’s comments were great to read about Sheldon being an innocent bystander, and I certainly can read that in the episode. I did see this quote from Jim in a USA Today article and wonder what folks make of it: “The way it was instigated through this woman who came back into his life, there’s something very interesting that he was motivated by that. He didn’t need a reminder that he missed Amy. … Both of us wondered if he wasn’t trying to squash some weird feeling that he was uncomfortable with.” Also, both Mayim & Jim have called his proposal “complicated,” in bts interviews. I think Jim is very astute about his character, and I’m not sure exactly what he means here. Anyway, not to be a downer. There were indeed lots of things I liked about the episode, and other folks' mostly positive opinions make me feel better about it as a whole. I just thought I’d share some thoughts with this kindhearted group
  7. Just want to weigh in on the “I love you scene” because it’s one of my favorite Shamy moments. The writers were so specific to have Amy saying, “I don’t want you to say it just because social convention dictates …” That was super deliberate to squash any sense of Sheldon reciprocating out of social responsibility. Also there is no mistaking how he looks at her in that scene. There’s a little head tilt he does when she walks towards him that is unmistakably full of love. I know Sheldon is clueless about many things, but he knows how important this moment is and because he cares about Amy so much, he wouldn’t say it if he didn’t mean it. Also he says it twice more for good measure oh and he had a scientific justification for it ... the only conclusion was love ... i.e. he had thought about it before this moment. He knew.
  8. Just read Mayim's grok nation post. Sounds like it made her a little uncomfortable too.
  9. I have mixed feelings about that episode. I want to love it and be super positive like everyone on here, but it made me a little uncomfortable to watch. I have no doubt that Shamy will be great next year, and this will be a catalyst for them to talk and work it out and eventually make a commitment to each other. It’s clear how much Sheldon loves Amy and that he is attracted to her (thank you last week’s wonderful episode). However, it was weird to watch Sheldon letting someone else touch him, smiling at someone else, and telling someone else he enjoyed spending time with them. I get that it is an innocent friendship, perhaps like enjoying spending time with the guy on the train, but it still made me feel a little squirmy, as a shipper … like maybe there was a tiny speck of something there, even if it was just a bit of Ramona being a surrogate for his girlfriend while she is away or something. Honestly, I didn’t expect Sheldon to be so into the friendship. I expected him to be a bit more stoic and oblivious. I did enjoy the gesture of Sheldon flying across the country to propose to Amy, but it was tainted a bit for me because the episode was not about Sheldon & Amy, but about Sheldon and this new stalker friend. I’m sure 11.1 will be awesome and will totally make up for it, but the ending made me firmly in the camp of Amy not saying yes right away. I’d rather a talk happens where it’s clear that Sheldon wants to marry Amy for the right reasons, not because he got a little freaked out or feels guilty (even if of course what happened is 100% not his fault). I think they’re clearly ready to make a commitment to each other, but as a viewer and shipper, I want it to be about them. Also, I think Amy knows Sheldon well enough to know something is out of the ordinary here. Despite my discomfort about the dynamics, I did actually think this was a really well written episode. I understand the concerns of people who felt like other characters were marginalized, but I loved the group dynamic and the clear concern and love that they all have for each other and the Shamy relationship. Melissa was hilarious in this episode and the walking down the stairs bit was adorable. And the first Skype call was the best! Overall I’m really looking forward to getting back to Shamy’s wonderful relationship and dynamic next season
  10. I haven't seen the episode yet, and I don't usually like Molaro interviews. But this one is pretty sweet ... “I’m really happy with how it turned out. I love that he walks out of his office and just gets into a cab … Then the simplicity of her opening that door was so sweet and honest.” "We took great pains to make sure that Sheldon was sincerely oblivious and innocent, and I’d like to say, it was on purpose in that another innocent character, say, SpongeBob, was something he was attracted to on a plane. I’m not going to take credit for that, but while I’m thinking about it, I’m going, "Well, sure, of course he likes SpongeBob," whose entire character is based on innocence." "It was important to us that Sheldon just honestly consider her as a friend, so after that kiss, there’s a moment where you can see Jim sort of process, and I think he’s thinking, "Oh! Well, all right, everybody was right. Penny was right. This is not OK. What is my next move? Excuse me a moment." [laughs] He gets on a plane, so I don’t know if my heart could’ve handled Sheldon actually being tempted."
  11. I for one, have no interest in seeing Ramona in season 11. I thought the episode in season 2 was clever, but I really didn't like Ramona's character. Nothing against the actress, she did a great job with the role but the character gave me the creeps. She was aggressive and manipulative ... which of course is the point in 10.24. I don't need to see her feel bad, or apologize, or get her comeuppance from Amy. I'd rather Amy and Sheldon deal with it in Princeton, and have that be the end of it. I'm only partially looking forward to the finale because I feel like the premise is a little icky. I am however very much looking forward to the gang's reactions, which sound quite funny and of course to the tag ... and the Shamy Skype scenes. I also hope Amy stays in Princeton for the summer. It will show that she trusts Sheldon, give him some time to be independent on his own, and show that she is continuing her research.
  12. Loved this episode so much! Wow, Sheldon has really gone all in on his relationship with Amy. I watched a few old episodes this week and its really nice to see the progression in their relationship. Folks have already pointed out the things I loved but here are a few favorites: Amy’s dirty talk was clinical scientific and Sheldon’s had more abandon. A nice capper for the redressing of the sexual balance in this relationship. I think any lingering doubts about Sheldon’s desire can be finally erased. How quickly Amy answers, “I am” to Sheldon’s query of interest. Sheldon caressing Amy’s arm. The intertwined finger handhold toward the bedroom … awwww. I didn’t know we were getting an “I love you" from Amy. That and Amy telling Sheldon that he’s important made me feel better about any weird dynamics about her worrying about Sheldon, more than missing him. I’m good now It was amusing to hear Sheldon say that Amy’s insistence on being around him is annoying. It was said matter of factly, but somehow sweetly, and it’s a reminder of how much she adores him. Sheldon’s face had a similar reaction to Amy’s Princeton news as he did to her breaking up with him on Skype. This was a really big deal to him (before he came to a good place with it), yet he still tried to be supportive and encouraging in his own flawed way. We get reminded that Amy is smart, talented, and in-demand (even though I get the point about this being more about her boyfriend’s feelings.) Sheldon buys Amy a suitcase thereby doing something thoughtful for her just because he loves her and wants to support her. Also the, “Here’s some quality luggage,” line cracked me up. Sheldon telling Amy he likes waking up next to her. This kind of line usually makes me cringe, but Jim did a really nice job with it. The way Sheldon said, “of course,” when Amy asked if he wanted to walk her down the stairs. And of course, the "I'm proud of you." I’m sure I will watch it again several times this weekend
  13. I think there are different ways of “needing” someone. I think Sheldon relies on Amy more in functional ways like translating social cues (even though I stand by the notion that she’s not a social maven), and, for the moment, though I hope this changes, he also relies on her more for emotional support (you’re not a failure if you don’t get a Nobel). But she needs him in the way you do when you love someone and your life has more meaning with them in it. (Sorry. I’m making myself cringe, but I don’t know how to put this without sounding like a cornball). And Sheldon needs her that way too, which was the whole point of Earworm.
  14. I agree. From the TR, it does indeed seem like Sheldon is upset about Amy leaving because he’s going to miss her, not because he’s not sure how he can fend for himself. That’s why there seems to be a mismatch. I’m not too hung up on it though, since we’ve only got 2 super short clips to go on I thought the Amy/Sheldon bed scenes were great this year. And I like that Amy can soothe Sheldon and get through/explain things to him in ways others can’t. To me, there was an underpinning of believing in him. Like when he got frustrated that he couldn’t understand emotions, she assured him that he was getting better and that though he struggles with that issue, it’s not necessarily bigger or more egregious than other struggles people have (like her with her sight). In turn, this year we had Sheldon forgiving Amy for lying about her apartment and elevating her work through his scientific contributions. In all, it felt like there was a really nice balance in their relationship. That’s exactly why these two scenes from 10.23 felt off to me. But I suppose this aspect of their relationship does appear from time to time, like when she made him sit on the stairs during the Bert gets a girlfriend episode, or the somewhat unfortunate (to me) Texas episode. There is even sometimes a nice leveling of the playing field, like Amy misreading the Bert’s girlfriend situation, rather than Sheldon, and admitting she was wrong, or Sheldon’s mom calling Amy a weirdo too. Regardless, no relationship is perfect. This could either be a dynamic that occasionally gets trotted out for jokes, or another hurdle that they have to overcome together. I’m not too fussed about it. Just something to discuss
  15. Yep. That's what I was expecting to see from the sneak peeks, which is what threw me off.
