  1. Which Sheldon Do You Prefer

    Number one, NUMBER ONE. Yes, I do think there was a gradual change 1-6, well, and some part of 7, I was up for it. But it was a change, all in the shades of spectrum of one's self. I'd say. What's after that, that's not a change, that's turn. Maybe now I would be up for the Aquamen statue hitting him on the head, you know, to end this sad meaningless suffering of once beloved TV character (I'm watching way too much of Walking Dead right now). From mostly proud content, confident chararacter, with peculiar (or obnoxious?), unique mindset that with all the immanent characters sparkled the screen with it's own never-been-seen-before stamp of comedy. To an empty shell that's being filled with once, three knocks. There... some child like naivity, some snark comment here and there - it all rings so hollow. Being so little, changing every other week. Who's Sheldon really right now? In five words, what would sum up his persona? I have no idea. If we insist on calling his journey a "change" than I, not believing what I'm saying Am calling this incredibly fast one. So much so, it seems to me like even writers needed more time to catch up, since they seem sometimes so lost of who Sheldon is right now. What he stands for? What his beliefs are, his goals, his characteristics? Seems like whatever is currently needed in a script. Surprisingly I don't think it has to do that much with Amy, as I'm reading in threads many times. I think their relationships was one of the funniest and best developments done on the show. Not just in season 4 even while I like them there best. They were both just enough similair and just enough weird and unique in their own way, to make the audience laugh, and their relationship work. Now, watching them, it's more like who's the one I'll feel pity for this week? and thankfully, rooting for them once in a while. Now I see Amy more like the one who has this dreadful job of being dragged along for Sheldon's "this week" journey. Being everything from poor doormat to confident woman and loving girlfriend, being one hundred and one shades of Jekyll and Hyde. I'm used to rolling my eyes when everbody goes around telling how the earlier series of probably every show on a planet are the best. The first three seasons, behold, The Holy Grail. I don't feel like it. I admit I fell in love with many shows way after it's "peak," but in this case, nope. The early series were better. And Sheldon? Early Sheldon is for me, the best.
  2. 43 vs. Earworm is quite hard. I dislake them both But 43 has Lenny's beautiful moment in it so, for that one... Prom vs. Fish Effect will be even worse, they are both among my all time favorites

    Agreed. Been a sad story with those two lately. You explained why better than I ever could. But on a positive note Lenny and Howardette were good, mostly thanks to the acting (writers should really bless their happy star or whatever for all of them, without, the'd long be you know, attached to another object by an inclined plane, wrapped hellically around an axis)
  4. [Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10

    It was once a clever, science related sitcom with everyday troubles (relationships included) showing up here and there. Now it's a soap opera of the two, with some science/geek related babble I guess so CBS doesn't have to change show's description or well, whateves. And the other characters? I feel like I don't have enough energy to vent about them. Why on earth would Sheldon make an RA for them? I don't have a wall big enough, to bang my head against.

    Such a great post! My neck hurts from all of that approving nodding
  6. [Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10

    In the spirit of new season I'll try to believe you I have a hope for the two...at least till Lorre finds a new way to poop all over it. I'm sure gang would miss it horribly. That kind of warning should be enforced for the sake of all those around Dr. Sheldon Cooper.
  7. [Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10

    Isn't Amy's life-fullfilling journey of treating Sheldon's various characteristics (PTSD, or well...whatever they just ran into while watching Dr. Phil) the story of theirs for some time now already ?
  8. Fanfiction Friday

    In the spirit of ff awards and those who can't be praised since they are outside the forum I'd like to remind one of best ff was recently finished - April's in Paris Book Club series. So for those who haven't read it yet and as I do, like to enjoy the whole ride at once, give it a go. It's truly extraordinary
  9. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 10

    To be honest, I was quite creeped out by the fact the guy she was about to get intimate like three seconds ago, is now cheering for them to get together. It was spooky to say at least.And one of the reasons I'm trying to bleach the way they got together out of my brain. But then Stephen is great actor, I enjoy his other roles very much. The train kiss always will be special. No kiss ever made me stare at the screen with my mouth open for good ten seconds. (Or join fandom). Writing or acting...it was beautiful
  10. Hmm...that's hard. Two episodes I don't really like that much against two/three I'd put in my top five anytime..
  11. What is the worst thing each character has done?

    Cheating. As much as I love Leonard, there writers just went way too far.
  12. [Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10

    Yep. Great point. Miss it too...oh,the old times...
  13. [Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10

    Well it might be popular opinion sure, still, in what I watched in BBT universe while Leonard lived with Sheldon for seven years, he got his head bitten off for changing the thermostat for two degrees. In half a time with Amy, he went on all the romantic dates, accept all sorts of hand holding, hugging, even kissing without much consequences, other than rolling eyes. By the time I hope Leonard and Penny had at least opportunity to whistle once upon a time and take a cup of milk without a hissy fit, Sheldon was busy roleplaying coitus and kissing his girlfriend. Not to mention he always found a way how to blame any wrong doings of Amy, to the poor two. I'm sure he values their presence in his life very much, but I never saw him bending his own rules so much for them as he does for Amy, I mean come on, after how much it is? Thirteen years or so of living with him Leonard still can't miss an agreement meeting without going through a living hell. How is that prioritizing somebody? That's what I saw in canon, and that's why, this opinion seems to me like bending the actual show quite a bit.

    Always when there's that time somebody goes "hey...you know Amy is not/ was not so important for Sheldon.." I'm having the same question that's been asked here over and over - did you guys watched the first three seasons?
