  1. 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!

  2. Saw her 9 days ago[emoji12]. But here, not quite that level of quality spotted yet. Mrs Itwas excepted of course. They need to do an on location ep by the pool here. Leonard can hide from the sun in their personal cabana and Penny can just.....walk around the pool for the fans![emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. It's why the slutshaming is so unfair. Since the bowling alley breakup, Penny has only been with Zac who, despite the accidental marriage, was never a serious option - early on she was trying to go back to "type" but he bored her then New Years was just to avoid being alone. Season 4 was really to show she only wanted Leonard and it hurt she didn't. Leonard, on the other hand, was the one with slutshaming tendencies, jumping at Dr Slutbunny first chance he could, then Joy, the old lady, Alice and sort of Mandy, with the real relationship with Priya in between that he launched into with instant sex that first night. Penny's joke persona is really so far removed from her reality of a very loyal partner who doubts compatibility but never love. When we get down in this thread from the snarky scenes we too easily forget the true story of Penny. She is, as we say in Australia, a shit stirrer, but the real love has never diminished.

  4. Sorry for late reply, SRAM. To be honest, mind has gone blank on details of the viewed episode but I don't think there was much Lenny. It was (surprise) very Sheldon centric ( a Sheldon/Penny old fashioned laundry scene ) with a bit of Bernie stressing over returning to work. There might have been some kitchen island stuff and a bit of shared staring at Sheldon when he was unexpectedly sleeping on their couch but that's about it. Definitely not a Lenny episode from hazy sleep deprived memory. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Hi all. Just a quick report. Got to pack our bags for a flight to San Francisco in the morning Episode was called "The Separation Agitation". If anything it was centered on Bert and StuHowardette more than anyone. But I thought everyone got a fair run without dominating. It was StuHowardette and Bert and the rest appearing together. Started with Fun with Flags: Behind the Flags - a retrospective complete with Raj and Howard on music. Shamy talk to Lenny ( at the kitchen island of course!) via video link about their Fun with Flags memories. They of course show their utter contempt for the whole thing. Found Penny's repartee funny. Then they call for viewers to call in with their memories. Deadly silence is followed by excitement when Bert calls - but just to tell them he has a girl friend. They ask for callers who want to talk flag memories but the next call is just Bert again telling them her name is Rebecca. Later at the university cafeteria, Sheldon, Leonard and Raj are joking around, Bert sits with them, Leonard invites him to come to his place for dinner so they can meet his girl. When they arrive she is a stunning blonde who is a failed actress who has become a personal trainer. She's much younger than Bert. Penny asks if Rebecca has dates a scientist before because she was thinking of starting a support group. Rebecca says she dated a Scientologist. Sheldon quips Bert is copying Lenny. We find out they met online. Raj remarks he had not much success online. Bert says he only got success when he mentioned his $600 thousand grant. Sheldon gets sent out by Amy when he speaks inappropriately. Bec comes back and says if she'd done something wrong and Leonard just says it's just normal Sheldon. Bec says something that implies it was the money and Amy is immediately suspicious and mentions it when Bec goes to the toilet. Sheldon makes another comment, gets sent out again but Amy calls him back when Bec makes her suspicious again. It was all very funny but can't remember the lines. When Bert leaves, Sheldon compares them to Lenny - Berts money and his groveling to get the girl and Leonard says it's completely different - Berts money will run out but he can beg till he dies. Penny quips - all that and he's shorter than me. ( Some will be annoyed by the usual insults but we all found it funny in the delivery of it. I thought Lenny were funny together and Amy's reactions to Sheldons comments were hilarious. Back at cafeteria next day, Sheldon tells a joke about Feinmann, Einstein and Schrodinger. Raj and Leonard react slowly but eventually love. Bert comes in. He is worried about what everyone said about being used. He says something about the relationship that Sheldon thinks is funny and tells Leonard it's his turn to tell a joke. Bert turns up at the apartment to tell them he broke it off. Raj starts saying he did the right thing, comparing him to his story which gets depressing and says maybe someone else should speak. Amy is glad but Bert is upset she convinced him. Sheldon has a go at her and she says to raise your hand for permission to speak. Penny tells Bert he should be looking for someone who likes him for who he is not what he has. Sheldon raises his hand and Penny makes the mistake of letting him speak because he delivers one of his trademark Lenny insults and Leonard just looks up at her and says don't look at me you gave him permission. Bert then leaves saying he might buy Bec a jet ski to get her back. Then there's a Fun with Flags retrospective retrospective and a call comes through and it's Bert saying it worked he got her back. The report of this plot doesn't do it justice. The jokes were very funny in my opinion and everyone else in the audience sounded like they agreed. There were no real dead spots in audience reaction. The other separation plot was Bernie going back to work but being really unhappy about but she is hiding that from Howard. She confides in Stuart who has clearly replaced Raj now that he's moved in with Lenny. Before going back to work, they all take Halley to the zoo but that just depresses Bernie more because she compares herself to other mammals who stay with their young longer than her. Howard has a chat to Stuart as well but he reveals nothing. They finally all share their feelings when it comes to dropping off Halley. They all cry except the baby and Bernie does her trademark angry thing telling Halley off for not caring. Later Howard and Stuart are at daycare dropping her off, showing Bernie via FaceTime how Halley is fine. Bernie cracks it again because she ignores her The boys can't leave. They steal Halley away and take her to the aquarium. Later they come home and pretend they are back from daycare but are caught because Bernie got a call about them taking the baby. Again the report doesn't do it justice without the jokes. I thought all three were hilarious interacting with each other. Stuart got Howard a few times with some comebacks and Bernie as always got them both. Thought it was a very funny episode. Lots of good jokes and no one really dominated. Mayim was hilarious but had a shocker with bloopers. At one point she was just sitting off camera eating the food laughing. I think she was distracted by friends in the front row. Everyone fluffed a line or two and a few scenes got joke rewrites. Raj had his family there as well. As was Kaleys dad but apparently he's always there. Jim reacted to the crowd more than usual according to others near me who had been before. Johnny and Kaley as always climbed up to speak to the audience confirming two more years and thanking all the fans. My wife and I had an absolute ball and stole the show in the audience interaction between scenes. Mrs Itwas won best laugh and I must say I dominated the dance competition ( I did a follow up dance with a crew member I was that "good" - it was no contest on the applause-o-meter) and gave as good as I got from the MC when he started picking on my Aussie accent. According to my wife I had Kaley and Mayim in stitches when I started talking about the difference between Americans calling it math and us Aussies saying Maths. He asked me my job and I said Maths teacher. He said if I'd had trouble communicating with Americans while here and I said only the last two minutes. I have to go write a report on my day for my Facebook fans - family and friends - now so I'm going off till tomorrow. I'll answer any questions if you have any then. So worth the 15 hour flight!!!

  13. I'm on the 11 am STUDIO tour. Should I go straight to line up after tour ( I have GUARANTEEDs) or will I have time to get a quick lunch? Is the queue mainly hopeful standbys or are there just as many Guaranteeds lining up early to get a best possible central seat? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
