  1. The pot smoking, meth, and husband getting shot have all been mentioned on the show. Wyatt's actions weren't mentioned outside of making her feel unwanted for being a girl. But considering what a train wreck the rest of his family is, and mentioning that he had Penny she pulled the wool over his eyes, it sounds as though he was extremely permissive as a father.
  2. For the record, I don't deny she was a very stupid teenager, but no way would I call her rebellious when it's clear she had a mother who was no better and a permissive father who would rather turn a blind eye than actually parent. Growing up, there is no way a guy like the ones they described would make it into the front door.
  3. Um, no. In one episode he showed love and genuine concern for Leonard, insinuating she would end up in a trailer park without him (a bullshit claim, she would not live like that and had already achieved better than that Leonard or no Leonard). And she wasn't a rebellious teenager by any means, she had a meth head brother, a sister who shot her husband, and a mom (his wife) who smoked pot when she was pregnant with her, and a father who seemed to sit in his ass and watch it all happen. In order to be rebellious there must be rules to defy, and based on the way his other two turned out it seems there weren't any. Hence why she was able to bring these loser guys home in the first place. Yet she turned out relatively well considering, and still her father did nothing but insult her. As for Beverley, it is clear she had a lot of fondness for Penny in spite of her elitism, and recognized the good she does for her son. In no way has it been shown she sees her as a sex toy, she was merely a snob. Clinical and clueless, like Sheldon. I'd still take her over Wyatt, at least she provided her children with the benefits of a quality education.
  4. No thanks on the Nebraska front. It seemed Penny did not enjoy it there, so I don't understand ever wanting to start your married life in a place that you were unhappy.
  5. Beverley was shown to be very fond of Penny, she started off dismissive but ended calling her "homegirl" and telling Leonard to take very good care of her. They teamed up earlier this season when Leonard was manipulating her for sex. I'd say she'll be very happy about it. It seems both her and Wyatt (the ultimate permissive parent IMO, degrading his daughter in such terrible ways when she turned out far better than his other kids) like their in-law better than their own child.
  6. One six-second kiss does not erase an entire lifetime of finding "the concept of coitus ridiculous and off-putting". I get that they're trying to have him hit puberty, but whatever. Point is, he wouldn't feel attracted to her, thus no point in clutching pearls about her "immodesty" at wearing a robe in front of Sheldon. Not that married women can still dress well in first place, as the concept that you must look matronly as a sign of marital submission is way outdated. Thank goodness.
  7. SRAM, I'm not sure I understand your issue with Penny in a robe. It wasn't inappropriate at all, considering that Sheldon is essentially asexual. What is with the demand she look more frumpy and matronly?
  8. I've been wondering lately about a switch in living arrangements now that it is the finale, with Amy being promoted from a part-time nanny to a live-in one. I think the set-up Leonard and Penny have now is smarter than trying to squeeze all his clutter into her shoebox apartment, but we'll see.
  9. Her Self Magazine shoot is probably my favorite, so gorgeous. Where you get the pictures?
  10. I doubt they'd write it in if she were to get pregnant at any point during the series, except maybe the final season. TPTB have been pretty clear about their lack of interest in adding babies to the show. If Kaley's pregnant, she can anticipate standing behind couches and carrying extra larges purses.
  11. For the record, I am thrilled about the engagement, but it was mentioned in the taping report that Penny was rethinking acting and that stuck out to me. The idea that's she'll throw in the acting towel and have no identity outside of Mrs. Leonard Hofstadter immediately came to mind and depressed me greatly. Especially when half the posters on a thread titled "Penny's Career" advocated she do just that.
  12. That's a very ignorant assumption. I just hoped the plot Penny acting would lead to more than a failed film role in what was an embarrassment of a project. She needs a storyline outside of being Leonard's girlfriend.
  13. But he still has them. I never said these outlets had to be more important than the relationship, but they can't be the only meaningful aspect of a person's life. Relationships are often too fleeting for that.
  14. That's not a healthy mindset, a person should have fulfillment in aspects outside of their relationships, Leonard certainly does. Last season's episode on her friends and boyfriend being her only passion was very depressing.
  15. Just because you don't care about how these may come across doesn't mean others can't.
  16. She seems to have gotten over that some time ago, and the minuscule amount of money she was being paid is all the role was good for. I was more concerned by her discouragement than losing this project slightly earlier than expected.
  17. And? I'm not how that relates to my post. At least she got a few weeks worth of pay.
  18. Are there rumors that she is expecting? Still grinning at all the nonsense being spewed yesterday about her apparent lack of commitment. Oops. On a semi-related note, I desperately hope they don't use this as an excuse to give up acting. I am okay with her changing careers, provided that she makes the decisions about what she wants to do on her own.
  19. I think Lopez was there as an audience member, not a guest star. Or I'm guessing, as I can't recall her doing any comedic work (though I'm not very familiar with her).
  20. Well, at least we haven't seen one of them sitting on the floor sobbing to the other about which toy to buy or heard one say "You need to apologize, mister/missy," when they misbehave in ways they are decades too old to be doing. They act like partners, not parent and child. I'm not sure what is convincing others that Sheldon is growing out of the toddler stage when "Indecision" showed he is comfortably stuck there.
  21. Leonard and Penny have a good living arrangement, it's smarter to keep both apartments than try and squeeze all his stuff in her tiny one. As for Sheldon, we get to see Leonard and Penny practice co-parenting with him, and I as a Lenny fan enjoy that .
  22. No, people do not always grow up. There are plenty of immature adults that are a testament to that. In the case of Sheldon, if he hasn't grown up by this point he probably never will. He apparently needs to transition from toddler to adolescent to adult; he's been stuck at toddler (he video game scene in your icon being a perfect example, and he's far more childish now than in S1). This has forced Amy to take on more of a role of a caretaker/nanny than a romantic partner, and know that I've been both. She can more often be seen scolding or coddling him than anything else.
  23. How in the hell would you know? You admit that you haven't even watched most of this season. As for quitting, I assume that happened after the failed proposal. Of course they weren't engaged. Same negativity, different day. Leonard and Penny are as solid as can be and you are still desperate to complain. As evidenced by the tantrum over her not responding to having Leonard take Sheldon to the airport (though he signed a contract on his own free will agreeing to do so).
  24. You are really twisting things in the most negative extreme possible, compromising any sort of reason to do so. You clearly hate the show and characters, so I'm not sure what compels you to stick around.
  25. Pre-proposal: Penny is never going to commit to Leonard! He's going to be waiting his whole life for the babies! She is always ready to bail! Waaaaaaaah! Penny proposes and it's the same response. Her acceptance that it was a bad time doesn't take away the fact that she put the offer on the table. Vasu, you "guaranteed" that she either wouldn't remember or would be angry at Leonard the next morning, and you were way off. So we can't say that they wouldn't still be engaged had he said yes. Hence why Leonard shows regret for not saying yes in the Proton episode.
