  1. That's such a sweet and innocent moment. The way he said "You looked pretty" reminded me of how schoolboys approach girls they have crushes on. Not necessarily the use of the word "pretty," but his inflection. He sounded almost sheepish. And that is what is so loveable about this growth from him. He never had that typical experience in middle school or high school of meeting a girl, thinking she's pretty, and courting her (or at least wanting to) like his buddies did. Finally, Amy has awakened those feelings in him and he's going through it now as a grown man. There's something so incredibly sweet and charming about watching a grown man (especially the usually-difficult and socially awkward Dr. Cooper) have such a new experience and go through the emotions that we all first experienced much earlier. Jim is over six feet tall, but the way he represented those emotions, you could tell Sheldon felt so small in that moment, that he knew this was such unchartered territory and that he was terrified of everything, but even more terrified of the possible ramifications not acknowledging the truth. I have to admit, just reading the words from the TR, I had such a difficult time imagining some of the dialog playing out in a satisfying way, but shame on me for ever doubting Jim and Mayim. Never again. It wasn't just in the speech, but the subtle facial movements (Jim's lip bite and eye aversion KILLS me) and gestures. I knowMayim has said she doesn't act movements, she acts emotions. Well, she absolutely hit it out of the park on this one, and I can't wait for her blog entry about this episode. *sigh* All the feels.
  2. Stop talking to them. You don't need that type of negativity in your life.
  3. I could hear Jim talk about anything all day. The man is fascinating. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  8. I'm dense. What's the significance of the blanket? I see the one in the "world without Sheldon" pic is drab and blah...is that it? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  11. I'm so sad that there are still 2 more weeks until the next episode. I've dealt with breaks before, but this is right on up there with the mid-season break after the Shules kiss on Psych in season 5. TORTURE Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. I think frustration is coming not only from recent developments, but also from being burned in the past. I admit, I haven't been a passionate Shamy shipper until recently (loved them, yes, but not to the point of repeatedly watching videos and so I do not fully know the frustration that has been expressed here...but I can understand the arguments for it. I get how hard it can be to see seeds planted and nothing bloom of them. I guess I just never had my expectations very high to begin with which keeps me from getting frustrated. Not that I think those with high expectations are wrong; I'm just not one of them. I've just been along for the ride, so any little thing is a success to me. I don't read Molaro's interview as a negative, rather a very cautious assessment made right after the taping. He had no way of knowing exactly how it would be received, so it was probably best in his mind to speak the way he did; that way he would align more with public opinion if the majority reaction was to criticize them for changing Sheldon too much...but if that's his approach, i agree with others- he probably should refrain from saying anything. I don't worry much about statements regarding keeping Sheldon "Sheldon-like." It's something writers have to worry about all the time, and I can imagine the task of growing a character as unique as Sheldon is a daunting one. You want him to grow, but you have to keep his essence. I think the PP episode will contribute greatly. While reports seem to point more to him immediately valuing Leonard, I do truly think something is coming for him and Amy as well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
