    [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 12

    It was my highlight of more than just a single episode. I think that's maybe my favourite Penny costume ever. But I call it green.
  2. Jane Austen. This came up in an ep where Sheldon seemed odd. After Amy pointed out a big plot hole in Raiders OTLA, Sheldon was reading P & P for the first time because it was her favourite novel and he wanted to find fault with it to get back at her. S is supposed to be very intelligent and to love A. But his not having had the curiosity to read her favourite novel before suggests either he's dully incurious or doesn't really love her. Also he couldn't find anything wrong with P&P. Fair enough as a novel, but his criticisms of LHOTP were based mostly on knowledge of the period. Someone who was really trying could have made something of JA's "don't mention the war" rule. Or of the fact that Elizabeth begins to change her mind about Darcy after seeing Pemberly: size (of country house) matters. Not valid criticism, perhasps, but if S is so smart he could have had a go.

    Don't entirely agree: Penny/KC is in a class of her own for facial acting, no-one is close enough to measure against her. Like it's a 0-1 varaiable (with Penny the only 1).

    Why can't we have scenes like the last pic these days? Is that really too much to ask?
  5. Altho Penny was said to "go all Nebraska" and similar, in fact she has put up with far too much disgusting behaviour from other characters without lashing out. Only Howard ever got the deserved treatment. I would have liked to see her GAN on Raj and on Amy on various occasions. It's a part of KC's range we should see more of.

    KC was brilliant in this ep. Penny's joy lit up the screen. I can't think of a scene of romantic happiness I've ever seen, and I don't mean just in sitcoms, to top that. She really has star quality.

    They should kill off one or two of the less likeable characters so we can see Penny looking great in formal black again.

    I'm hoping there is arguing and that the arguments are followed through and the issues resolved so their relationship ends up even better and they end up in bed and we see it all on screen.,ved

    KC's facial expressions (or facial acting, as I call it) are wonderful and they're not just funny faces, often they say more than words, and most importantly they convey Penny's feelings and inner life. All sitcom actors need to be able to pull funny faces, but few (maybe none) are real facial actors like KC - many sitcom characters have no apparent inner life. Lenny are the first sitcom couple I've ever shipped ( I can remember not really caring about Sam and Diane and rather disliking Ross and Rachel, can't remember who there was before Cheers) and it's entirely due to KC's acting. She's made Penny such a loveable and sassy-yet-vulnerable character. I would have liked to see Penny's issues resolved before series end.
  10. I really can't see that. The way Amy has been treating Sheldon, telling him to go and sit on the stairs or put his hand up before speaking, I think he'll be mentally abused.
  11. More interesting than what? I found Penny's relationship with Sheldon a lot more interesting than Amy's. Why couldn't Sheldon have been kept as one young man on TV who didn't have a "romantic" relationship at the centre of his life. I thoroughly enjoyed Penny's crushing of Howard. We should have seen her do the same thing to creepy Raj, and never try to make him feel better. The horror! That was a scene to make the blood run cold.
  12. Another beautiful relationship that was superior to S/A, but has been destroyed by making Shamy a romantic couple, was Sheldon with Himself.
  13. Presumably there'd be some sort of physical test that they'd both fail. That could be pretty funny. Remember how Shamy used to be funny before the programme-makers tried to make them romantic?
  14. The way I see it, Penny's taking sides on the RA was open in L's presence and constituted defiance but not disloyalty. And since the very existence of the RA is down to L, not P, he can't complain how she uses it. Whereas L listened to Amy's stories about P behind P's back. The way I read it, Amy admitted she was jealous of P & S's friendship implying L should also be jealous, and sneaked on P to L because she was jealous. L should not have entertained A's malice towards P. Of course, Penny is an idiot to confide in Amy.
  15. Penny is L's wife. Anything she gets added to the RA isn't going to harm L. Penny will never harm L. Poison Amy was trying to make trouble in P's marriage, and it doesn't make any difference if what she said was true. L should have been loyal to P and thrown A out of the apartment.
