  1. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    People can disagree but I still consider the Leonard Penny relationship to be longer than the Sheldon Amy one. Season 4 was “ she’s a friend who is a girl but she is not my girl friend”. Season 1 and 2 can be seen that way for Lenny although I saw that era as a far closer relationship than Season 4 Shamy, despite the different sexual partners. Penny was definitely a friend who was a girl but not a girl friend. This even continued into first half of season 4 until Priya tried to kill it temporarily and bits of Season 5. Sheldon didn’t officially move for official boyfriend/girl friend status until episode 10 of Season 5 in Flaming Spitoon when Stuart made a play with Amy. It was only 3 episodes later that Lenny reunited for good. Then there was the break up of Shamy in season 9 to interrupt the relationship. Throw in that Howardette we’re engaged in late season 4 while Shamy were still friends but not boyfriend girl friend and they’re longer than Shamy too. Not interested in a debate ( I’m a very seldom poster these days so won’t bother answering ) just how I feel about it. And thanks@Tensor for the report. Great report as expected. Glad you enjoyed it. I had a lot of fun with Mark Sweet when I was there last year too. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    Starting to get some alone time back, having positive and funny conversations, two way smiles and looks AT EACH OTHER instead of looking on at others, talking to their friends about their FRIENDS’ problems instead of their own, there’s a positive energy between each other instead of a dial it in look...... and I loved that Penny is showing a genuine love for Halley again. She’s nearly ready. I reckon Wolowitz baby 2 will push Lenny over the edge by end of the season. There is a definite push to show Penny as clucky ( is that an Aussie or Universal term?) for kids.

  3. [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    (Crawls in through the back door in dark embarrassed how long it’s been)......That was just gorgeous! All those flashbacks of all the typical trashing of their relationship by Sheldon, Howard and Raj completely destroyed by a simple scene of pure Lenny perfection. Proof that she simply loved him. Confirmed that the wore her down theory is pure BS. I don’t care how many times we hear that crap, the writers have finally given us on screen evidence this love is beautiful. Thank you for the gift!( sneaks back out to get back to the never ending work that’s kept me away.....) Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Information For Attending A Big Bang Theory Taping

    I did it from Australia and yes I started refreshing from about 7 am LA time ( which was about 4 am for me that time of year). Did that early because advice then was sometimes they come online a little earlier than expected and it was my one chance to go. Once on they were gone in about 10 minutes so stay alert if it’s your only shot. Helps if you have someone on at the same time time getting a ticket if you want more than one because you can only book one ticket at a time. Good luck. It was so worth the effort. The week you are going is the same time I was there this year and as Tensor said historically there has usually been a taping around that time ( that’s what he told me back then ).

  5. 1103 - The Relaxation Integration (October 9)

    Just had an “actors dialling it in” tone to it, this one. Just felt a lack of energy, especially from Jim until the flip flop story near the end, from most of the actors. Bernie was funny enough, liked the last Shamy scene, a couple of jokes here and there, the tag had potential, but I just couldn’t get into it tonight. Raj more than Stuart annoyed the shit out of me. I like more episodes than most on this forum cos I don’t get hung up on bias against different characters or repetition or “canon” but once or twice a season I just feel no energy from the actors in an episode. This was one of those for me tonight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Canned Laughter

    Take it from someone who has been at a live taping, it’s REAL laughter. Even on the second or third take, we are still laughing. You do get “encouraged” to laugh again so at times it can sound a little forced - but it is real laughter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Young Sheldon Discussion Thread

    Felt like I was watching the Wonder Years. It’s not a comedy. It’s a good humoured drama. I didn’t not like but don’t see it as a compelling must record for later show for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Information For Attending A Big Bang Theory Taping

    When I went this year, I did the 9:30 tour, came out at 12:30 and got to the line up at about 1. There were about 40 people ahead of me but I had a "guaranteed ticket" so wasn't fussed. When it was officially time to line up, it became apparent many were hopefuls with standbys and I suddenly moved up to number 20 in line. I was fine but as we found out later, it was a specific taping at which the cast brought about 50 guests between them so even some "guaranteeds" who turned up confidently around 4 missed out because there was seat shortage due to the guests. As an Aussie with one chance of ever going, I was glad I got there by 1. Tour was great too but I was given advice by regulars here to go early so I'd have time to get a good spot in line.

  11. Tensor will be temporarily unavailable.

    Good dose of perspective for what is really important in life. Staying tuned in over here in Australia via cable news, where we have these kind of events in common, although not in Melbourne where I am. Stay safe,@Tensor and@Carlos. Do what you need to do to get through this. We are all thinking of you in a scary time. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    That moment Penny truly realises that this man she has tried to find so many reasons to NOT be with is the one she WANTS to be with for one shocking reason - his intelligence. Happiness was not muscly buffoons or good looking idiots. It was a smart guy that made her smarter too. As mentioned above, Penny has grown smarter - and nerdier through Leonard ( and the others ) but she has constantly battled with this change. Loved the Proton funeral episode when she is fighting a losing battle against knowing Star Wars. Deep down, she was enjoying but on the surface is her battle to seem not to. This moment is another reminder of how much better life is for Lenny alone. Penny is so much more loving and Leonard so much more confident without the negative shit that gets in their heads from Sheldon, Wheaton, Howard and Raj that have interfered with Penny's conflicting emotions so often before and after this. Here, in the silence of the Lab, Penny is swept up in it all and submits to her true feelings. And Leonard is in control. Love it. The beginning of the best Lenny season - number 6.

  13. [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    Between seasons coincide with busiest times of year for me. Tend not visit much when nothing on. Too much prediction of doom and gloom. But I love a good moment of reflecting on the triumphant past. The good bits always meant a lot and this moment was truly beautiful in the Lenny saga. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    Defines Penny's true nature. Despite all outward appearances of her and stories of her being able to get any man because of her looks, despite all the snarky, insensitive, ill-conceived crap that's come out of her mouth over the years when talking about the Lenny relationship to the girls or Sheldon or even Leonard, this exposed us to Penny completely on her own recognising the depth of her feelings. They haven't even really got together yet but she deep down knows she is completely lost without him and 3 months alone without Leonard walking through that door to save her from a shallow life is gonna kill her. So obvious the way she jumped him on return. It was followed up - same reaction - when he came back from North Sea in Season 7. This moment, the box of mementos, the proposal realisation of what makes her happy counters every stupid negative scene from the last 3 seasons. I'll hold these moments forever as proof that Penny is lost without Leonard and loves him so much. I don't care what the writers do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. [Spoilers] Lenny:Season 10

    Still got 4 weeks here - New York, DC, Orlando, New Orleans for JazzFest and returning to Hawaii to relive our honeymoon from 25 years ago! Where many have said Lenny should have gone for their Honeymoon. Again Leonard in the shade, Penny walking around or coming out of the pool or ocean ......for the fans!
