  1. Average episode at best imho. Weak dialogues, the Shamy thing getting a little old, plot holes (did they leave the 2nd bird there just dying over the holidays?).

    I so agree with you. I chuckled maybe once, as a former raging shamy shipper I gotta say I'm getting bored with their ridiculous relationship, I'm so over them. The bickering between Leonard and Howard was not amusing to me at all, I don't think Leonard or Raj think Howard is less intelligent by any means; it seems they did just for this episode so they could create a plot. Penny was great though.

  2. Hate to say it, but I agree on all points. The constant fat jokes have GOT to stop. I'm almost embarrassed by how much I like the show when they keep doing lame fat jokes over and over. There used to be more to Mrs. W's character. 

     

    I was a hardcore Shamy shipper and I freaked out about the kiss this season--but now I don't know anymore. How many times is she going to suggest moving in together till she gets the hint? She looks desperate. I need to back off because I don't really trust the writers to get this relationship back on the right track next season. Where is the geeky fun? The happiest Amy looked this season was when she was hanging out with Howard, of all people.

     

    I feel like the science stuff is getting neglected because they have to include all characters each week and there's so much to cram into 19-20 minutes.

     

    Also, I am happy for Raj, but I hate how the guys brag to the world about their sexual conquests. I hope he doesn't blow it with Emily.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees the overtly hateful fat jokes; for some reason I got past them when Howard was a single guy and the jokes were more about how overbearing mrs.Wolowitz was and a fat joke sprinkled here and there. However, they sound so tasteless and unfunny to me coming from Howard the faithful married guy who would love to have children one day. I hope they lay off those jokes for a while.

     

    The kiss took me by surprise(I never read the taping reports) but they handled it so well that they got me on board with the shamy even more. But after that it has been downhill for the two of them; What I loved about the shamy before and also found hilarious was that Sheldon's quirks were so endearing to Amy, but obnoxious to everyone else. Lately though, she has lost that loving and caring feeling towards him(IMO); She finds his conversations about his hobbies and interests tedious and seems to only want sex from him no matter what. The more she asks for intimacy the more distant he becomes, something has got to give; one of them should do the right thing and just break up. I'm actually glad Sheldon left so Amy has a clear head of what's going on here and she starts either dating someone else or feel OK being alone for a while.

     

    Regarding the cramming of so many story lines; not only has the cast almost doubled but also the amount of commercials is outrageous. There is just so much you can say about 6 people(7 including Stuart) in 20 minutes. Did they really need to outshine Lenny's engagement with Raj's sex life? very poor taste of Raj to bring up his sex life right after the engagement announcement. I guess they decided to focus more on the interpersonal relationships than the geeky side of the characters for most of the season 7. I'm also starting to lose faith in the writers and I hope they don't lose sight of the clear gem that this show was and still could be. 

    Off my soap box now,

    Did you miss it the gang was reacting to actual current science news! See http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/03/140317125850.htm

     

     

    We have never had science in every episode but the current events in TBBT are related to actual science.

    I don't have a transcript for the 7.24 but Sheldon did mention the University would not let him change his field of study and I believe it was cosmological inflation that he mentioned he wanted to change to.

    I remember that episode, definitively one of the better ones this season. I specially liked Sheldon waking up to the geology book. The show used to be about science with some relationship drama sprinkled here and there; now it's the opposite and it's obviously not changing back. I always ave the option of not watching which really sucks because I keep waiting for the show's former glory to emerge. Although I have to admit there are a few episodes in S7 that are absolutely comedy gold and that's when I'm hooked back on again. I hope S8 has more science talk though.

    Excellent episode!!

    Also an excellent jumping-off point for those who can't bear to suffer thru the next three seasons that WILL culminate in the final deliverance of Vintage Sheldon into the clutches of the Undeserving One.

    The Howardette story was entertaining even though it was a bit "heavy" on the tired old "my mom is fat" jokes.

    Stuart was very good.

    I even liked Leonard in this one. He showed himself to be a real friend. And Penny was spectacular.

     

    The best part of the episode is the way Amy's attempt to exploit Sheldon at a vulnerable time in his life blew up in her face. Her four years of never-ending pressure, scheming and manipulation failed and she was left in a sputtering, selfish rage. She didn't get what she demanded. Not deserved. Demanded.

    Sheldon is FREE!!! That's the way I will remember him. Long live Vintage Sheldon!biggrin.gif

    End of series for me.heart.gif

    I cannot believe I agree with you because I was a hardcore shamy shipper. There was a time when I honestly thought they were the best couple on tv ever; then the writers decided to turn Amy into a walking cliche. Because the over bearing, overly attached needy girlfriend has not being portrayed enough on tv, of course they always fall for the emotionally distant, cold as a stone boyfriend. And Sheldon rejecting Amy every effin scene they're together NEVER gets old, right? ugh

    I adore vintage Sheldon too :o) and the shamy when they were cute together, God I miss them...

  5. No, I don't think they mind comments like that. You expressed positive thoughts and didn't bash them for what they did or didn't do.

     

    I'm just seeing comments all over the place about how Amy deserves better and how dare they not respect her as a character and they better give her more time and attention next season or else. That is crossing a line for me. She gets plenty of attention. She isn't "disrespected" more than any other character is for the sake of comedy. The writers created a peaceful resting place/resolution for Howard, Bernadette, Mrs. Wolowitz, Stuart, Raj, Leonard, and Penny. They left Sheldon and Amy hanging in the balance. Doesn't that guarantee their storyline will be a focal point of the premiere and S8 in general? Isn't that what we want? Amy isn't alone. Sheldon is just as miserable as she is by the end of S7 and since they are the key to each other's happiness, I view that as a positive thing. It's bringing the focus to them and their relationship and the progression we all want. Aside from the initial shock, this outrage is completely unwarranted and bordering on ridiculous at this point.

    THIS

    and

    "100% can't stand it when the writers of a show care so much about the demand of their fans that they lose their way"

    THIS

    I cannot believe how some people just want shamy humping on camera so they're happy. I for one think the physical part of their relationship is thousands of miles away and I don't know why some shamy fans want to force the issue. I would have felt extremely uncomfortable watching an emotional and ridiculous good bye between Sheldon and Amy, they are just NOT there yet. Now flooding the creator's twitter account with ridiculous demands is just plain crazy. Don't they care about the characters and being true to their own well-paced progression? at this point I honestly hope the shamy breaks up, it pains me to say this as a former shamy shipper but I just do not see one single reason to keep shipping these characters any longer. I hate pushy/obnoxious Amy, I miss the old shamy. Oh well, I will always have" the herb garden germination"...

  6. The rest of episode was atrocious IMO. but the worst parts:

    -over the top hateful fat jokes about Howard's mom.

    -Shamy: good God I used to ship this couple so hard, not anymore. Amy has become insufferable, can she just back off. I have nothing against Mayim, she is a wonderful actress and super cool person during interviews but the writers are destroying her character;  I wish Amy  would kick Sheldon's ass to the curb so hard, the shoe would never come out. I adore Jim Parsons but cannot stand Sheldon anymore, why doesn't he break up with Amy? I don't see any point anymore in having her in his life. They stopped having fun together ages ago. 

    -Amy interrupting Leonard and penny's celebration, ugh not funny at all.

    -The science is completely gone from the show. I wish last week's episode was the finale, much better written and actually funny.

  7. yowza! this thread has gone to the dogs, but I'd like to put in my 2 cents about the finale anyway.

     

    IMO

    Best scenes: Leonard and Penny were adorable last night; I am beyond thrilled they finally stopped bickering and things are going great for them.

                          Stuart and Debbie, awesome! finally a genuine caring friendship for Stewart besides Rajesh.


  8. I'm a shamy shipper but can I just say how adorable were Lenny last night? I adore them together and saw the same spark last night as they had during the first seasons.

    What a great episode, I rated it excellent. Simon and Kunal were perfect as usual, I just love them together in every scene, amazing chemistry between the two actors. I also love the Bernadette/Amy pairing and the cake rolling off the table was hysterical. 

    Sheldon/Leonard hug was so touching,this scene and the Shamy train kiss have been my favorite scenes of season 7. I teared up during the hug scene; Sheldon showing emotion and growth is absolutely beautiful. I also loved Bob Newhart, Professor Proton just stole the show, I laughed so much during every one of his scenes. This episodes has been one of the best in season 7.

  9. sure u may :dancer:

    Thanks! he is just so yummy

    I would kind of want to see Jim lock up people in a basement, strangle them and then bury them in the backyard. ( sorry my psychotic self is showing )

    well that escalated quickly! i would hate to see that LOL, I meant  a villain like Loki in avengers or the Riddler in Batman, but to each its own.

    hott

    I had never seen this photo, it's fantastic. JP is so photogenic, the guy really can do no wrong

    Also, if I saw Jim at the supermarket I am positive I would embarrass my self from fangirling so hard lol

    EDITED: @saraluvsshamy I hope you don't mind that I copied that picture and used it as my profile background. It's just too good! Jim looks like the hottest villain ever in that photo

  11. I love that she takes risks (fashion wise) and she chooses bold colors that look so beautiful with her skin tone. Also look at those heels! I remember the episode where Amy got new heels and she couldn't walk in them, Mayim on the other hand is rocking those pumps.

  12. I really hate to say this because I adore this show and have grown to love each and every main character, but I did not enjoy this episode at all.

    They went there again...Amy trying to seduce Sheldon, again... ugh I hate how Amy has become, how cliche Shamy has become, they were so endearing and special together. Now it's just the same old cliche of a woman begging her man for attention. Does Amy even like Sheldon anymore? It seems to me she cannot stand the guy but will not back away because, hell she has wasted too many years of her life not to get into those hot pants(yes I think Sheldon is super hot but not worth the heartache).

    I did enjoy the Raj/Howard interaction as usual, these two are gold together. I'm not sure I'm liking Emily anymore. They obviously are trying to make her a freak so they can dispose of her later IMO.

    anyway, I'm so sad I have to be so negative this week because I really do love the show but now I'm afraid for how the finale will pan out. I'll just wait and see.

  13. I loved this episode! I was laughing from start to finish, which did not happen last week. Finally a great scene between Penny, Leonard and Sheldon together, I've always thought they were the heart of the show. I love how Emily is as crazy as Raj lol. Sheldon waking up with the book was hysterical, very good plot and I loved the shamy scene where Amy is helping drunk Sheldon into his room, very sweet. I also thought it was incredibly sweet that he asked where was Amy almost immediatey after waking up, definitely my favorite couple. I'm really loving Remily too.

    I thought Leonard was hilarious when he said he could buy salmon to get the brown bear lol. I'm a happy camper right now, I hope everyone else enjoyed this Epi as well.


  14. I'm so mad I missed more than half of the episode because of the stupid weather report, I know they have to report bad weather for safety and such but seriously during TBBT??? I'm only thankful that the episode got cut right after the Shamy kissing scene otherwise I'd be bawling, at least I got to see it.

     

    I was enjoying this episode a lot;  I loved Bernardette's card story, and I loved that Rajesh FINALLY had a normal conversation with a woman, hallelujah! anyway, I'll watch it tomorrow after they post it online and find out what else happened. 

    My favorite line was Leonard telling Penny: "well, I wouldn't eat the bananas" (paraphrasing) I thought that was hilarious, and I was so happy to see Leonard and Penny had a loving/fun/positive exchange instead of the bickering from last episodes. 


  15. I saw the negative comment too, I can't believe someone would be so mean and offensive. the worst part is that she does follow her blog, why would you follow someone you don't like how ridiculous. I was glad to read everyone's responses to the mean lady  ripping her a new one.

    on a lighter note, how adorable is Mayim in that picture with the little soccer uniform, too cute!

  16.  The frienship between Majim is too special to ruin it with a "secret relationship"; He loves and respects Mayim as a friend but he is in love with Todd. I really doubt they would ruin the special friendship they have by going beyond anything platonic and embarrass Todd and themselves. I see the connection between them so pure that anything physical would cheapen it, at least that's how I see it but I know some fans have fun imagining otherwise, not me though.

    awwwwwwww the feels, I know they're only friends in real life but I get a little nutty when I see them together outside of the show, makes me worship the Shamy a little harder.

    The rest of the cast also looks wonderful, I love that Johnny and Kaley are standing next to each other and Kunal is just gorgeous.
