  1. Hey all! I just couldn't stay away! This is my little Christmas present and thank you to my loyal readers. Having left his Christmas shopping until the last possible moment, Sheldon must suffer the consequences. It is rated M. https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12733426/1/Ho-Ho-OH This is the first of what is going to be a 2 (possibly 3) chapter story at most. The other chapter(s) is not written yet and that most definitely will NOT be happening this weekend since I am one of the poor unfortunate souls that have to work at the crack of dawn Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Happy Thanksgiving Y'all! Enjoy!
  2. The painting is called "The Good Life" by Corey Steffen. I'm not sure if I can post a link to the website where I found it, but a quick Google search should bring it up. It's retailing for $174.99 on the website I found it on.
  3. I'm spoiler free this season so quickly ducking in and out of here trying to not read anything. Even though Shamy had, what I felt, to be the B plot this episode, it was incredibly sweet. I was not expecting the "I love you." How soft Amy's voice got when she said it was perfect. Jim's acting during the dream sequences was fantastic. I don't know how he and Mayim manage to keep straight faces and get through filming. Oh, to be a fly on the wall during rehearsals.... The writers totally read fanfic. They stole my Amy goes to Stanford (except made it Princeton) storyline from Ten Dates and now they totally ripped off @hazelra7 and Six Sheldon's tonight. Yo writers, how about ripping off any number of the Shamy bedroom scenes? I'm sure CBS would jump at "Big Bang after Dark" over on Showtime!
  4. First solid episode of the season. Hubby and I laughed the entire episode. Bernadette's "I like drinking cranberry juice from a wine glass and watching people freak out"," (or something close to that) and Stuart's "the fungus is under the toenail!" had us in stitches. I liked Bernadette's new co-worker. Would love to see her become a recurring character. Next week looks cute too! It's very nice to see a nice balanced rotation of the A plot amongst the cast throughout the first four episodes. Have to wonder if that's the new show runner's influence?
  5. This episode was boring. The only time my husband and I laughed was during the tag when Mrs. Davis was reading Leonard's drunk e-mail. For the second episode of the season, this seriously had a "mid-season filler episode" feeling. I'm wondering if it's a recycled script from last year with just a few tweaks.
  6. The second time (that I count at least) was in Spock Rennosance when he took the ring and saw Amy kissing Dave Gibbs.
  7. I'm 100% spoiler free this season, so I didn't know that Amy was going to say yes. I have to say I was extremely disappointed that we didn't get to actually see it. The Howardette storyline was cute and so well acted! I was wondering if they were going to work in Melissa's r/l pregnancy. Amy hugging Dr. Slutbunny at the end of the episode made me groan. Sheldon only proposed because someone threatened their relationship? Seriously, WTH? It's been established that he was going to propose twice previously. There was no need for Ramona to even be in the episode, other than to establish the time jump. A pretty meh season opener. Hopefully, it gets better next week.
  8. I'm also on the fence as to whether I will continue to watch Young Sheldon. I laughed a few times at a few of the jokes Sheldon made but as the show ended I felt sad for Sheldon and I don't want to watch a show that makes me feel that way. The casting (with the exception of George Senior) is brilliant. When Mary called for Sheldon, I thought I was listening to Laurie, rather than Zoey. I'll watch one more episode because pilots typically have a lot of ground to cover in a short amount of time to set up the premise, but I'm thinking, at this point, that I'm out.
  9. Mayim and Kunal's episode of Drop the Mic will air on TBS October 26th. I can't wait for this! https://www.tvtime.com/en/show/332509/episode/6226519
  10. Carlos and Tensor, glad to hear you and your respective families are okay. Homes can be rebuilt, although the insurance and FEMA paperwork is a nightmare. I'm in South Carolina but luckily we escaped any major flooding here.
  11. I've submitted my top 10s for both Shamy and Lenny, and, oddly, I found the Lenny list to be much easier to put together... makes me feel sorry for the Lennies. My Shamy top 10 is as follows: 1. Proposal 2. Prom (I love yous) 3. “Oh, it's a tiara!” 4. “We can find out together”/ first coitus 5. Sheldon realizing the song was about Amy/ she's the dryer sheet of my heart 6. D&D game continued in Sheldon's bedroom 7. the kiss on the train 8. Buridan's donkey 9. “We got a turtle!” announcement to Lenny 10. Sheldon reaching for Amy's hand when Howard is launched into space
  12. YMMV, but, ON was definitely the better written of the two episodes, IMO. I can't get over Bernie's elephant gestation just to satisfy some one-liner joke that only Molaro found funny. SO glad that joke is (by all appearances) dead.
  13. Guys, we might not get an answer on 8/15. The past two season premieres have seen episodes taped out of order and secret scenes not taped in front of the audience. Sorry to harsh the buzz... hope I'm wrong. #LowExpectations
  14. I don't think Analyn d'Ettore is on the forum, but I recently started reading her story and am completely blown away by her talent. This has quickly climbed into my top five favorite stories of all time. The Inefficiency Postulate
  15. While I agree that the show has morphed to more relationship based rather than focusing on the guys as a core group of misfits, I just don't see the same decline in writing that the more avid posters claim. I really enjoyed the Howardette storyline in particular last year.
  16. I'm almost certain that 11.01 will pick up right where 10.24 faded to black, but I think it would be interesting (read totally frustrating for fans and totally in Molaro's wheelhouse!) to have a flash forward to three months later. Most of the episode is focused on the other members of the gang and Sheldon is offscreen preparing for Amy's homecoming. In the final few seconds of the episode, the camera zooms in on Amy's finger as she comes through the door, where we see the ring as we hear Sheldon say, "Welcome home, fiancee."
  17. This isn't the first time Mayim has had vocal cord issues. This article on Groknation talks about music therapy for "voice issues."http://groknation.com/faith/grief-month-8-music-mourning/ I can't imagine having to stay mute for an entire month! Hopefully , she'll get to feeling better soon.
  18. I'm sure I'm projecting, but I see a lot of Amy's personality in myself, although I'd like to hope I'm not as socially awkward.I think that Amy's naivete, lack of social skills and general "roboticness" comes from being very sheltered as a child and a lack of opportunity to interact with her peers in a social setting outside of school (girl sprouts for example.) I think her mother ingrained in Amy a fear of the outside world. So, when she met Sheldon, she "went robot" as a way of protecting herself. Amy seemed as though she trusted too easily and then came to realize she was being taken advantage of or a victim of bullying (the otter in the sauna story.) After awhile, at least for me, that took a toll on my psyche and I became generally distrustful and always second guessing motives. I think once amy began to realize she really liked Sheldon is when she started trying to be near him as much as possible. Penny offered the best of botworlds, so to speak; proximity to Sheldon and the opportunity to have a real girl friend. That Penny was friends with Sheldon certainly helped.
  19. I'd love to see more domestic!Shamy; cooking a meal together (complete with Sheldon wearing a flowery apron!) Sheldon asking Amy how her day was, snuggling on the couch while watching a movie or reading books/ scholarly publications, etc. I, for one, am tired of the "Sheldon needs a babysitter" storylines so I'd love to see him taking care of and anticipating Amy's needs. He's been much better since the breakup, but in a way, I want more proof from him that he's truly ready for marriage, seeing it as a true partnership rather than, "I am completely dependent on Amy" or, "I better put a ring on it to prevent somebody from encroaching on my turf." I still have mixed feelings about this proposal. Of course I want to see Shamy married, but I always imagined a episode or two where Sheldon attempts to plan the perfect proposal, everything goes hysterically wrong, and we get to witness a very heartfelt, emotional proposal (which Jim and Mayim act the hell out of.) could still happen but I'm thinking it's more likely Amy says yes in the cold open of 11.01.
  20. Choosing my top 10 Shamy moments was much more difficult than I thought it would be, but the hardest part was assigning them a spot to correlate to point value. I hope season 11 is just as good (or better!) for our ship! Thanks for organizing it, April! I'm seconding (100th-ing???) the call for a Captain Jim interview. I know he's on his honeymoon but man I miss MaJim IG cuteness this hiatus.
  21. It's been over 24 hours without a post in this thread. :O I'm wondering about everyone's opinion on what the first dance song should be at Shamy's wedding? I'm torn between "The Way You Look Tonight" and "The Best is Yet to Come" but I would absolutely FLIP if TPTB could get the rights to use Jamie Lawson's "The Only Conclusion."
  22. Beautiful pictures! The love between Jim and Todd radiates off the screen! Thanks to everyone for sharing them on this thread
  23. I'm arguing that the train kiss came from a place of "I'll show her." It was only as his brain clicked, "hey, this isn't as icky as I imagined," that he moved in and placed his hands upon Amy's hips, deepening the kiss. I'll give you the "I love you," he said it first, however, an argument could be made for social convention. I'm certain that as a child it was drilled into him that when someone says, "I love you," you are expected to reply, "I love you too." As for coitus, in 8.24, Amy yelled at him, "after five years together, all I can get is a distracted makeout session on the couch?" It would be reasonable for Sheldon to believe that part of the reason Amy broke up with him is because their relationship wasn't physical at that point and that line was going through his head. He had just gotten her back in the previous episode and by sleeping with her, marking her as "his," giving her what she finally wanted (albeit once a year until recently) she would be less likely to leave him again.
  24. Yes, I do, actually. Sheldon has had to be pushed and forced by circumstance into each and every major milestone of this relationship, but once he's coerced, he finds it's not as bad as he imagined. I don't doubt that he loves Amy, but he's s creature of habit. If Ramona hadn't kissed him, would he have proposed? I somehow doubt it.
