  1. [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    The scenes with the Hofstadter family were beyond wonderful. To me they were the funniest of this young season! It was great to see Penny & Beverly continue their bonding (We can't forget Penny's attempt toward the end of Season 9. The marriage re-do was in large part for her mother-in-law's benefit!). Both actresses were marvelous. Christine's total change of voice and tone when Beverly was speaking with Penny nailed the character's reaching out in friendship. Kaley was spot-on perfect in the early telephone call both vocally and physically. She is a treasure and is extremely underappreciated. I am over the moon happy with the Hofstadters in this episode. From the opening with the green body paint on the uniform to Beverly letting Leonard know that he married well (AND that his wife did not complain about him) did much for me. I can't wait to watch the episode again and again (first I have to call the cable company regarding the non-functioning "On Demand" selections!!!!). Sort of liking Steve Holland so far......

    Could have done without the Howard/Sheldon storyline. More Bernadette/Howard; more Raj/Bernadette, but mostly more Penny/Beverly/Leonard. The Hofstadters had the funniest scenes of the season!
  3. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Ha! Don't you think at some level, all the characters are supposed to be "liked" in one way or another? I have no warm feelings for Dr. Cooper. At all. Sorry to say......
  4. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    These reasons (and those provided by @Tensor above) are among the reasons that endear Leonard to me (and I would like to think to Penny). Sheldon, despite what he says about what he was subjected to, had two people on site that were totally in his corner, Mary and his Mee-Maw (this is one of the the things that grate on me about his message to Howard upon his mom's death---Howard may have friends in his hour of need, but Sheldon had a great support system in his family. The lone appearance by Missy as an adult shows her with love for her brother, even though she displayed typical sibling annoyance, which was, I am sure there when they both lost their father as children). Leonard was alone other than passing appearnces by his father. As far as we know, Uncle Floyd was not a daily visitor to the Hofstadter home. Leonard is also a damage soul......

    I’m sorry. I just don’t like the character. There is plenty that draws more to TBBT. Sheldon Cooper isn’t one of the reasons. Again. I just don’t like him. If that’s bashing, then so be it.

    He may be unique. JP appears to be a caring, socially aware man with views similar to mine. However, for me Sheldon Cooper is a toxic personality. I would be absent often in a group that included such a person. I just dont like his he treats people. My opinion and feelings only. And I know extremely unpopular.

    Got our daughter that t-shirt a few years ago!

    In this case, I think they were addressing Bernadette's having been prescribed "bed rest" by her doctor for possibly the remainder of her pregnancy.
  9. [Spoilers] The "Dark" Lenny Thread: Season 11

    To me it appears that they are trying to do too much in each episode. We have to have a Sheldon (or Sheldon & Amy) plot as storyline A or B. We also need a Howard/Bernadette story, which has been in seasons 10 and so far in season 11 usually a B plot, occasionally an A plot, rarely a C plot. That leaves slim pickings for Leonard, Penny (and Lenny) and Raj. Add to that fitting in recurring actors (the great attention paid to Bert in Season 10 was confounding. He had 2 large stories as well as a few lesser appearances. What the heck?). It's no wonder that Lenny is just sort of drifting with hints of movement, but when push comes to shove, nothing happens.... What I really fear is if Young Sheldon does not succeed, will TPTB (Lorre & Molaro) sacrifice storylines/character advancement on TBBT to rescue the new show? We shall see....
  10. [Spoilers] The "Dark" Lenny Thread: Season 11

    Someone posted a video clip of past season Lenny embraces (none later that S6). The passion in each of their eyes as they looked at each other was pretty darned remarkable. (my bias is showing here:) I don't recall intensity between two actors in a sit-com in quite awhile......
  11. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Nope. Most of us here have watched most of the episodes many, many, manybtkmes and we all remember certain details.

    Actually, to me it is the opposite of sad.

    As I said, I could be wrong, and I am.
  14. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    I believe 2nd. “The Spock Resonance” was the first wasn’t it? They met for coffee. Sheldon witnessed their “goodbye” moment (I could be incorrect). “The Mystery Date Observation” was the second. He (Dave) went on and on about Sheldon and got to meet Leonard after the failed get-away by Bernadette & Penny. That leaves “The Earworm Reverberation” as the third? Enter Sheldon and Brian Wilson??????
  15. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    A great thing about Dave was that he was a “physicist enthusiast”. He was so excited to meet Dr Leonard Hofstadter after his 2nd date with Amy. “OMG! Are you Dr Leonard Hofstadter?” and “Amy! Do you believe it? It’s Dr Leonard Hofstadter!”
