  1. Can already watch first 10 seasons on Netflix ( the rest will follow eventually) and still have all of 11-12 on Foxtel IQ4 record so don’t need to spend that kind of much money. I’m already rewatching on Netflix. Old habits die hard. Comfort food for late night boredom. Still laugh and smile. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Never understood the need for the competition myself. As pointless as that relationship test episode. Let the characters live on as we want them to without digging in the heels on who’s better. But that’s me and my happy thoughts! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Good to see one more Lenny/Shamy smackdown before we turn out the lights. Good memories. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I never really had a problem with Season 8 until that last episode and the Mandy crap! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I don’t have a problem with any one season, just specific episodes and arcs. I’ve always found S 1-3 funnier than the later ones, S6 excepted, but understand the style needed to change for longevity. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Agree 6 was the high point. That’s where I went first when BBT appeared on Netflix. But I am a huge fan of the first 3 seasons. Couldn’t have lasted forever as that style but 1-3 contained a lot of the iconic classic moments of the show Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’m watching it all over again on Netflix but just picking a choosing my favourite episodes indiscriminately. Enjoying that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’m so going back there again! Planning Canada trip next couple of years. Think I’ll need to put in a detour to WB Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Yeah my dubious online ethics matches my lack of patience in waiting to watch. Channel 9 delays in recent years have not helped. That and FTA Australian TV’s over reliance on shoving reality TV shows down our throats 4-5 days a week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Now I want to go back to WB and do the tour again! I’ve already been Joey on the Friends set. Now I want a picture on Lenny’s “island” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Lauren Lapkus is the same age as Kaley so Denise could be the same age as Penny, younger or older depending on the whim of the writers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Yeah, while the girls are happy to do cosplay and a bit of D&D, Denise could have been the “voice” of the boys in the girls group, something none of Raj’s harem could add. Imagine redoing the Thor comic scene with Denise involved or the girls arriving at the Doctors Nerd Cave to bring the boys home. A Season 13 with Denise could have been the reverse journey of the boys to Normal Land - the girls heading towards Nerddom. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. By the time Lucy ( and Emily and ultimately Anu) came around I think the 3 girl dynamic had been well and truly established as one of the core relationships in the show. We had 3 seasons of the boys relationship ( with Penny the counterbalance ) and then 3 seasons developing the girls relationship ( with some occasional Penny/Bernie stuff introduced in Season 3). Ultimately I just think the writers never wanted to change those two dynamics with a permanent 4th female. Raj’s chances were doomed to fail by the end of season 4 when interestingly another female, Priya, was also driven out of the show, as an outcast of the female triumvirate. Denise as an extra female was able to happen late because while Stuart increasingly became important through the Howardette connection, he was still the optional extra and Denise didn’t always appear with him ( no show at Halloween while they were still trying to force Anu onto us as a cosplayer. ) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Penny was the “socially normal” polar opposite female needed to play off and grow the boy nerds, Amy the “socially awkward” female equivalent of the boys who needed to grow up with the help of Penny (and Bernie) and Bernadette was the part scientist/part normal female that sat between Penny and Amy, while also being the mother replacement/catholic opposite for the Jewish boy. Emily didn’t have a role to fill as she was another normal girl with the forced defect of gore fetish that just didn’t gel with the characteristics of the others and the hardcore quilting which Penny and Bernie were never going to appreciate so causing a split for Amy. Lucy’s role as the socially awkward female was already taken by Amy. Clare went nowhere and was just a plot device to kill off Emily in the show. Anu was a last ditch but half hearted attempt to save Raj at the end with a stereotypical arranged Indian relationship that had been done before with Lakshmi. Interestingly, Denise worked for Stuart as the perfect soul mate of 100% comic geek. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I just think Raj was sidekick material from the start. Writers were more comfortable attaching him to the others as comic relief or third banana than trying to give him a long term arc to explore relationships. He didn’t have the determination or drive to pursue a woman like Leonard or Howard. He was too busy living in a fantasy world. Plus the writers could never settle on the quintessential Raj once he could talk. He was destined to remain the odd Seventh Character. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
