  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Oh.... so we ARE going to do this 4.24/8.24 again?!?[emoji1787] What have I done?[emoji12] Maybe they should have got Raj and Mandy together so they could talk about their Lenny experiences. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. There’s always reigniting the classic “ never let them die” perennial arguments over Raj sleeping with Penny, should Penny have cared more when Amy whacked Leonard when Sheldon left on the train and should Lenny have moved out earlier.

  11. Hope Aurora isn’t expecting to win a Nobel Prize for Physics when she starts studying Neuroscience! Unless she plans to come up with a random idea outside her field of study as she prepares to walk down the aisle[emoji12][emoji1787] But kudos to Amy for her speech!

  12. I’ve said it earlier and many will disagree but I personally felt this Sheldon apology was different and genuine because usually we get the others caving after they’ve been mad and he ends up feeling vindicated by winning and pulls that insincere smirk on his face. This time they might have softened their anger in their own conversations - Lenny in the bathroom and Howardette in the room and on the phone - but they didn’t cave in front of Sheldon and give him that satisfaction. ( it may have happened in the lobby but it was not shown and I’m not aware whether Shamy were meeting them or going separately as the award winners.) So in my mind he is on the stage internalising what they said and having a “Big Bang” event in his head and realising what an ass he’s been all these years. Saying those words in front of so many strangers in a moment when it could have been all about him made it plausible that the final of this show was what we’d waited for for 12 Seasons of false alarms - Sheldon truly changing. I understand that many long time Sheldon haters or those who don’t respect the writers don’t accept that. But as Nograv said, I’m a bundle of joy[emoji12] and that’s how I’m taking the ending.

  13. Slutbunny was Elizabeth. Pretty sure Mandy will be off the list too. [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. She was “fantasising about .....Leonard ....... AND a little Idris Elba. “ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
