    [Spoilers] 2018 Comicon TBBT Writers Panel

    So we can look forward to- - Grown up Tam visiting as Sheldon’s first friend from Young Sheldon - Grown up Libby ( Young Sheldon’s first crush ) visiting to cause jealousy in Amy - Dr John Sturgess, Young Sheldon’s first scientist obsession and Meemaw love interest, appearing in a dream ( unless they make Wallace Shawn just look really old) - Billy and Bobbi Sparks returning - since Leonard had a Speckerman story way back, we have to revisit Young Sheldon’s bullying experience - And episodes with all of his former teachers from YS, Pastor Jeff and Dr Goetsch, the psychologist. AND that’s just from Season 1. Who knows what cross promotion we can shoe horn in from Season 2? I love Sheldon and don’t mind as much as other Lennies that he dominates the show but this just sounds like it’s gonna go up a notch or 12. Every storyline hinted at was Sheldon/Shamy. That they plan. “Penny happy with her job” = we got nothing for her this season. NO!! to Young Leonard ( not that I necessarily want that) = we really don’t value that character anymore. Another season of couch sitting, kitchen island Shamy observing and walking through the door returning or going to work for Lenny And thanks Tensor.

    [Spoilers] Season 12 Discussion Thread

    What I hope will happen.................. Now they are married and we know that sex is something that both Amy and Sheldon enjoy and Sheldon has shown how much he loves her, we go back to funny, weird, unique Shamy and all their crazy interactions without the tension of not having a relationship like the rest of us and Amy whining about it. Invent replacements for Fun with Flags and Counter factuals, push their interactions on their pre wedding ceremony science discovery with and without the others. I don’t need Shamy to consider parenthood straight after a marriage when it’s still an after thought for Lenny 3 years into marriage. 3 years into marriage, even if it doesn’t eventuate, a season long Lenny arc where there is real development in a future in moving to a house like Howardette, real discussion about children and the challenges of it, Penny getting that PR job and maybe directing and acting in ads for the company’s products, Leonard getting real success that even Sheldon and his mother can’t dismiss and a return to Lenny physical attraction as they try for kids ( and just because they don’t have to behave like their 50 year olds in a 25 yr old marriage) Howard gets some success in his career a la space trip arc, maybe connected to Raj’s astrophysics career ( or is he just a Planetarium presenter now, a job I could do with a script). Something that puts him financially equal to Bernadette and she struggles with not being the superior in the relationship. At the same time, Bernie creates something at work as well. Yeah I want science back as the focus - other than Raj, the relationship thing is done and Raj is almost a confirmed failure now with even Stuart having more prospects after the Shamy wedding. Get rid of pathetic Raj through a science achievement. In terms of the ensemble, I’d like the boys to finally win over the three girls to their way of life in some way. I liked that Penny subconsciously embraced some of that nerdy stuff (loved the Star Wars stuff in the Proton funeral ep) throughout the show but Amy and Bernie have always been rather dismissive of it apart from that Thor comic plot. As fellow scientists they have always been able to connect with their men but I think it would be fun to see them give the nerd culture a go in a few stories and not just through a bit of cosplay at a party. On the other hand I have no problem with the boys being engaged with the girls interests too but they’ve never really been as obvious. What I think will happen........ The Shamy love story continues as the connection between Young Sheldon ( which I like as a show) and BBT Sheldon develops Lenny continue as content couple with nothing really happening other than feeding lines to Shamy and reacting to the latest shenanigans of Number One. Howardette continue to deliver some cracking one liners and hilarious cameos without moving outside the quintessential old married couple with kids plot. Raj and Stuart to continue on their battle for most pathetic character while continuing to make we laugh awkwardly. Guest stars that succeed and fail. Continued lack of continuity. Rehashed storylines that will make me laugh but not enjoy as much. Me still enjoying the show but still longing for the Golden years of seasons 1-6. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Lenny Wish List

    May turn up a few times during hiatus. There’s that slight sense of joy and happiness between seasons that I can enjoy and embrace before the depressing reality of Sheldon induced Lenny suppression sets in during the season that brings everyone down. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Lenny Wish List

    My main wish is for them to finally give in and embrace their different interests rather than fight it and criticise. I’ve always said Lenny is so similar to my wife and I. We are very different people with very different interests but 26 years of marriage has taught us to accept those differences and enjoy each other finding unexpected joy in unfamiliar experiences. On our trip to US last year, she unexpectedly nerded out at all the space and science museums she initially resisted. I went along and revelled in her joy at meeting the Cake Boss in Hoboken and cooking in New Orleans. I’ve endured 25 years of sitting through episodes of Bold and the Beautiful with her but found funny ways to engage in conversations about the ridiculousness of it all. After years of flying solo at trivia nights mrs itwas has joined me in recent years and contributed in her own way and enjoys it. And our trials and tribulations in pushing each other and the resulting reactions have been bloody hilarious. Plenty of comedy in our different lives. That’s what I want to see in the Lenny marriage in season 12. Finding common interests through risking it instead of staying distant and sitting around 4a doing nothing. And now back to the cave for another 3 months. [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    They haven’t had a problem using ass in either derogatory way before. Ricky the smoking capuchin monkey was described as a bit of an ass by Shamy and Penny referred to gluing monkey hair to her ass during the Serial Apeist arc so it just seems they’d prefer the word donkey over ass in the dialogue.

    “I ate a butterfly” is still my favourite although Howard’s face does it for me. Best line is Sheldon’s “I think that you have as much of a chance of having a sexual relationship with Penny as the Hubble Telescope does of discovering that in the center of every black hole there's a little man with a flashlight searching for a circuit breaker.” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    [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

    [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.

    [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

    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 ).

    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

    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

    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
