  1. Thank you for the report, maxoudela! Very detailed and informative. It sounds like a pretty good episode.
  2. Aarti Mann actually doesn't have an Indian accent LOL So that was definitely committed acting. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BuQRsQml5lA
  3. Carlos stated/asked "who the hell cares?" I provided an answer. What is it you don't understand, exactly?
  4. People with different opinion than you.
  5. If you prefer to look at it that way, fine. Personally, I'd rather judge characters as just characters, based on their actions and behavior, without bringing writers into it much. We already know that the show is fictional and that the characters can't do anything, good or bad, without being written like that, and we don't know why the writers wrote it that way or what kind of creative process was it, we only know what characters ended up doing in the episode, that is what we watch. Constantly mentioning that writers made them do it just muddles the water. We are watching the show, not a reality TV about a writers' room.
  6. The original post was about how Sheldon somehow knew Leonard couldn't stand him being nice (?) after all those years of bickering and that Sheldon knew things would work in his favour, which is why he played along.
  7. But, by that logic, doesn't that absolve Sheldon of guilt too? After all, the writers had him act the way he did too. Even if it was funny because that is in character and creates conflict, they wrote him that way. Basically, what is the difference between "a character did that" or "the writers made him/her do that"? Can characters do anything without writers "making them"? No. They aren't real. That applies to Leonard, Sheldon, Howard, Raj, Penny, Amy, Bernadette-all of them. Even in fanfiction, somebody has to write about them. So I guess we should either judge all the characters equally, by their actions and behavior alone, without bringing writers into it, or just assign all the guilt and criticism (and, when it is warranted, praise) to writers. It doesn't seem consistent to pick and choose.
  8. So, it is Sheldon's fault for acting a certain way, but it is not Leonard's fault for going along with it and making that decision at the end, because the writers made him do it?
  9. Everything on this forum is someone's opinion (except for taping reports and other news), we know that, and pointing that out doesn't prove or disprove anything.
  10. It shouldn't, but his lack of complaint and support shows a different attitude than the one in earlier seasons, so that is a progress, not a lack of thereof. And no character is perfect, occassional immaturity applied. What would be fun in watching a sitcom about a group of completely mature, non-eccentric, well-adjusted adults?
  11. Nobody can be on their best behaviour every single time.
  12. Thank you for the report, Tensor! You did a great job. Very detailed and informative.
  13. Glad to know you are doing better. I wish you the best.
  14. Ramona kissed Sheldon, not the other way around.
  15. Thank you for the reply, kerrycec03! I really appreciate it. It sounds like an interesting episode, especially Sheldon returning to the String theory.
  16. Maybe not an episode idea as in "whole episode", but something that I would like to see happen in a future episode. I'm interested in hearing what you think about it. I think it fits into this thread well since it is about possibilities and hypothetical scenarios. It occurred to me today, on season eleven discussion thread; the actress who portrayed Yvette (the vet in season seven), Tania Raymonde, had a recurring role on "Malcolm in the Middle". Jane Kaczmarek, who portrayed Leonard's therapist in season nine, also starred in "Malcolm in the Middle"; she portrayed Lois (a character that I couldn't stand, by the way, though no disrespect to the actress). Kate Micucci, who portrays Lucy on TBBT, also guest starred on MITM once. Now thinking about that, I think it would be cool if Frankie Muniz would guest star on The Big Bang Theory once, though sadly he's been having some health issues as of lately, so the likelihood of that is questionable. But I hope he does better soon. At least, maybe Frankie could portray Frank LOL (one of Sheldon's "other friends", according to his claim in episode 9x22 "The Fermentation Bifurcation"; Frank and Alicia). Alicia could be portrayed by Aubrey Plaza (I think she and Frankie would have a good chemistry on screen), or maybe Sarah Michelle Gellar (sort of an inside joke/reference because Leonard, Sheldon, and quite possibly the other guys like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer").
  17. Raj looked like he jumped right out of "Miami Vice" or a similar show/era.
  18. Yes, but Leonard had rocket fuel because he wanted to show it to Joyce Kim; actually, had Sheldon not chased her away, this might have turned out even worse, since she was a North Korean spy. Sheldon did get on their nerves but curiousity could have gotten better of them even if they hadn't known him. I mean, Howard tried to build some sort of sex robot a long time ago, I doubt Sheldon suggested that LOL.
  19. And without Sheldon, he would have easily ended up blowing himself, Howard and Raj up with badly administered rocket fuel, ending even a theoretical possibility they might encounter Sheldon someday. By the same logic, all three could have met Sheldon at the university eventually. It is questionable would they have become friends without Leonard already living at Sheldon's, but they all had similar interests when it comes to geek stuff. Other scientists there seem to be "just nerds". At very least, neither Barry and Leslie, for example, were ever shown to be interested in comic books or video games. It is not like guys ever mention meeting someone from the university at Comic con or at the comic book store, or something like that.
  20. By meeting Leonard first, but going by a chain of causation, they wouldn't have met Leonard had Sheldon not put up an ad for a roommate and accepted Leonard as his rommate.
  21. Weren't Howard and Raj the ones who led to Sheldon meeting Amy and vice versa?
  22. Funny thing is, the actress who portrayed Yvette, Tania Raymonde, had a recurring role on "Malcolm in the Middle". Jane Kaczmarek, who portrayed Leonard's therapist in season nine, also starred in "Malcolm in the Middle"; she portrayed Lois (a character that I couldn't stand, by the way, though no disrespect to the actress). Kate Micucci, who portrays Lucy on TBBT, also guest starred on MITM once. Now thinking about that, I think it would be cool if Frankie Muniz would guest star on The Big Bang Theory once, though sadly he's been having some health issues as of lately, so the likelihood of that is questionable. But I hope he does better soon. At least, maybe Frankie could portray Frank LOL (one of Sheldon's "other friends", according to his claim in episode 9x22 "The Fermentation Bifurcation"; Frank and Alicia). Alicia could be portrayed by Aubrey Plaza (I think she and Frankie would have a good chemistry on screen), or maybe Sarah Michelle Gellar (sort of an inside joke/reference because Leonard, Sheldon, and quite possibly the other guys like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer").
  23. Well, for a year or two it was kind of normal and kind of serious (though quite possibly kind of dysfunctional fron the start, since Raj seemed to be creeped out by her every now and then), but he really blew that relationship by the end. Lucy seemed to hold the most positive view of Raj (in season ten episode where he met up with his ex girlfriends). Others could barely stand him. It is almost like things turned worse once he could speak to women without being drunk.
  24. Weirdly enough, it turns out that Raj's most functional long-term (well, relatively long-term) relationship was the one with Lucy (who would have thought)? I mean, back then, at least he didn't end up dating two women at the same time, only to (deservedly) end up with neither.
