  1. I don't see Stuart as needing a win. He's the kind of peripheral character that can be nothing more than the butt of jokes forever. Or he can somehow strike it rich in the final episode and run off with whoever will be the most famous sex symbol for nerds at the time.
  2. What Molaro said about Lenny reminds me of how the producers saw Howardette for many years. He has nothing definitive to say because he doesn't know and they're the utility players at the moment (like the baby question was asked about Howardette for years and always received a vague answer). Before Lenny got married, Howardette was what they are now: the married couple who make cracks about each other more than they hug or kiss. With the exception of when Howard's mother died, this was them until TPTB knocked-up Bernie and gave them a plot. This current attitude about Lenny strikes me as laziness and failure to consider any type of plot for couples outside of marriage and babies. This is obvious from the glacial pace at which they have addressed Penny's career dissatisfaction. Shamy gets all the development because they are way down the totem pole in terms of achieving significant relationship milestones.
  3. The more stuff I read from her the more clueless she seems about what kind of show she's covering. She's asking questions like TBBT is a CW drama and Molaro is giving answers that contradict the notion that relationship drama is all the show is about. Molaro clearly still wants to allow himself the slightest bit of room to find funny stories to tell rather than immediately lock everybody down in cute relationships forever.
  4. There's always rounds 373 through 402 of debating whether or not Raj raped Penny in the season 4 finale.
  5. It does sound awfully funny and it is nice to see the whole group working together, but there's a certain creepiness to Sheldon being treated like he's Amy dog, not only by Amy, but by everybody. This is why, in this season dedicated to Shamy, that I don't see the writers writing their relationship particularly well. If Amy isn't treating Sheldon like her child, she's treating him like her pet. How can they honestly be seen as a romantic pairing with this recurring theme? This is a far cry from the Bernie as substitute for Howard's mother, as that was sparing and pretty much disappeared once his mother died.
  6. It's clear to me now that Penny and Leonard have evolved into your run-of-the-mill sitcom married couple. Most of their stories are about some sort of simple conflict that is ultimately meaningless because they are MARRIED, which generally makes them untouchable in sitcom land. It's not something that shippers can get off on because conflict is valued over sweetness--because comedy comes from conflict--and there won't be any drama because all drama ends at the wedding (until they try to make a baby and struggle with that). Howardette has pretty much always been like this, which is why nobody really ships them.
  7. I believe it has been implied, but never outright stated, that both of Leonard's parents work at Princeton.
  8. Swimmers have tremendous stamina...
  9. When is that going to happen? Maybe if the boys resurrect M.O.N.T.E and he goes haywire and tears the island to shreds.
  10. Come on now, you very well know Lenny stands behind the kitchen island making smart comments about Shamy while Stuart lies in bed watching his "Japanese porn cartoons" and Howardette have sex.
  11. I guess I mainly watch for the comedy because Howard and Bernadette is the only couple I like and they don't have a lot of shipper drama surrounding them. I wouldn't necessarily call myself a shipper for them though because I don't get all hot and bothered about the weekly status of their relationship. And about them kissing... they don't seem to have a lot of hot kisses. They have more causal pecks that aren't especially memorable. The trade off is that they're hotter for each other and have more sex than any of the other couples.
  12. I think it's just a matter of objecting to the blatant favoritism on the part of the writers towards Shamy. In my opinion, Shamy gets just as much bad stuff as Lenny. I mean, Amy treating Sheldon like he's her child is far worse in my mind than if Lenny had screaming fights in every episode. The real problem is that Shamy gets all these dedicated scenes where they actually hash out and resolve their conflict of the week. Lenny gets nothing of the sort. The most they get is some shared looks that can be read as them being on the same wavelength. So I can understand the resentment. It IS unfair. Even Howard and Bernadette -- who have their child's birth glossed over by the writers in favor of the annual Shamy sex -- are treated better than Lenny, but then they are the best couple on the show.
  13. Necessary has nothing to do with it. Sheldon being unnecessarily intrusive as a matter of course is part of his shtick. The show would have died at birth if it was nothing but couples having cutesy conversations about their relationships. It's bad enough now with Shamy bedtime scenes every week. The only reason that sort of works is because it usually has to do with Sheldon being obtuse in some amusing way.
  14. It's funny 'cause it's true. It shouldn't be surprising though since Shamy drives the bus nowadays. But I gotta say it's a huge case of "be careful what you wish for" because Shamy hijacking the show at the expense of Lenny is mostly a byproduct of Sheldon moving out of 4A. This is something Lenny people obviously wanted, but sort of forgot that Sheldon's presence makes anybody in his immediate vicinity more prominent in the show.
  15. This seems to me like a ramp up to Sheldon proposing. I could be wrong, of course. I just don't see the writers threatening their precious Shamy in any meaningful way when they couldn't even make an honest attempt at it back when they tried breaking them up.
