  1. I tell you, my neighbors don't understand that fireworks are fired on the holiday. Not the day before or after the holiday. Maybe I'm wrong, but it's ridiculous and annoying. Oh well,  hopefully they get it out of their systems.

    Yeah it’s good to rant once in a while LOL 

     

    Regarding their first wedding, I was okay with the idea of them eloping,somehow I never pictured a big wedding for these two so I was fine with that. In saying that, they didn’t have to make it look so cheap and tacky ( pot pourri from the bathroom , breakfast at the stippers’ club etc). They could have had a nice sweet wedding , even in Vegas. Of course, the boat kiss revelation made everything worse. What was even harder for me was them spending their wedding night apart. So you have Penny in 4B having to process all that on her own, Sheldon rambling because he’s obviously confused and hurting and as mad as I was at Leonard , seeing him like that in his armchair made me sad. There’s a guy who messed up big time and he knows he only has himself to blame. I really felt for the three of them. 

    For me , the writers didn’t quite get the comedy nor the drama right in this particular episode. 

    Now for their second wedding, I really didn’t care for Sheldon’s speech , as nice as it was. What pis*ed me off was the “ weird other husband that came with the apartment” line. I mean, was that really necessary ? They spent seasons showing us the bond between the three, be it friends, brotherly/sisterly , surrogate parents and even masters/pet and now he’s  her “ weird other husband''? I don’t know if was more insulting to Leonard or Amy. Again , another nice moment that had to be cheapened. 

    As for the Shamy wedding , it was the most iconic character in the show getting married so you’d expect the writers to put out all the stops for the big event, detailed wedding planning, a bachelor’s party , a nice ceremony and a honeymoon. 

    Why they thought Lenny deserved less than that is anybody’s guess. I think for their vegas wedding they went for an " unconventionnal TV wedding" . Not a very satisfying explanation but that's all I can think of. 

    H/B got a nice wedding then nothing, Lenny got 2 subpar weddings then nothing, Shamy got everything, that’s really not fair. 

    Totally agree with your assessment. Shamy got the near perfect wedding and Lenny got Sheldon screwing up both weddings. The first by his childish behavior and the other poking in where he wasn't needed. Everything he said could have waited till after the wedding. Bernadette's line about weird other husband, in my opinion, was uncalled for definitely not needed. Enough of my rant, for now. I really enjoyed reading your post and as I said,  I totally agree with you.

    There is a recent article in Looper that suggests that Leonard and Penny got the short end of the stick in their marriages. I agree as this has bothered me as well. Their first marriage was an elopement with the albatross of Leonard's indiscretion hanging over them (a ridiculous storyline to say the least) and then their redo marriage ceremony with all their family and friends was blighted by Sheldon's inappropriate and obnoxious behavior in the whole episode. Including his injection into their embrace when pronounced man and wife. The article goes on to say that Bernadette and Howard's wedding while not perfect did have some warm scenes. But Sheldon and Amy's wedding had very little faults with all the guests and family attending and did not have a single wrinkle. Why did the writers make their wedding so much more enjoyable than L&P. As Leonard and Penny were the core couple from the beginning they could have made their  wedding much more appealing to the fans. And why didn't they show some scenes from the reception.......I guess time did not allow for it.  So much for my rant

    Ranting is a great way to release tension. I've ranted a few times and I felt so much better afterwards. I totally agree with your rant. It's as if the writers just threw the Lenny relationship under the bus. I'll reframe from ranting on this subject as you have eloquently expressed your thoughts on the subject. Great Rant!

    It very understandable.  The  pilot, as shown to execs and test audiences, ran 32 minutes.  When it was first broadcast, it was cut down to 25 minutes, which is still a bit high when they strip a show.  To TBS' credit, they didn't start cutting bits and pieces of scenes until after the show ended it run on CBS.   Our local channel has been cutting those bits and pieces since about season 7-8.  

    Thanks.

    I've just checked the episode on Netflix and we definitely see the guys dancing . Next scene is Leonard entering the apartment " singing" , then Sheldon pointing out that Penny didn't reject Leonard, he didn't ask her out etc... So it's definitely been cut!

    I don't remember that scene. So it was probably cut.

    Wonder if he had time to meet up with Kaley although that would have been highly publicized

    Most probably not. Although I haven't read anything about  Kaley lately, she seems to be busy with her new guy.

    He has at least 3 projects in development, these are AOK, Catching Babies, and Johnny was in London last November to discuss a joint project with Jeremy Edwards. He has been seen in LA twice this year, so I still have hope that he is working on projects.

    We'll see.

    I thought that was Karl lying in bed with Blueberry. :icon_cheesygrin:

    Looks like he may have gotten custody of Blueberry. Or they are sharing custody. I wonder if they have split up the shared animals?

    Have you seen Karls latest IG post  He shows a woman in bed (who does not appear to have clothes on) with his dog Blue and the caption "I dare you to say there is a better way to wake up" Guess he has moved on as well. Just wonder if this was a shot at Kaley for all the pictures she posted with Tom?

    No, I haven't seen the post. I hope that he has moved on to find happiness for himself. It may have been a shot at Kaley's postings. Probably his way of saying that he can do it too.

    Wonder if Karl will express any news now

    If he hasn't said anything yet, I don't see him saying anything about it now. That may be part of their agreement to not talk about it. But, who knows. We'll see what happens now.

  11. Read an article about Kaley and Karl's divorce being finalized. Guess they're now settling on who gets which animal they shared. Still nothing new on her new relationship.

    Kaley and Karl's divorce appeared to have been finalized on Monday.  At least the Judgement for Dissolution was entered and filed on Monday.  

    Good to hear that is done. Time for both of them to move on with their lives. Haven't heard too much on her new relationship lately.

  13. I'm glad it's not her wedding dress. At least she hasn't rushed in again. 

    Is it me or has the media cooled down on Kaley's ongoing relationship with Tom. I haven't seen much on them lately.

  14. Happy Juneteenth Day everyone. It's a federal holiday,  but not everyone can take it off. Probably just banks, government offices. So don't expect any mail to be delivered today. 😂

    This picture is recent from Kaley’s Instagram, does this look like a wedding dress to anyone besides me?

    It definitely looks like a wedding dress to me as well. I don't think she acted so fast in this relationship. At least that's what I am hoping.

    Kaley's IG shows her on a double date with her assistant Emma and her BF.  It seems Emma has given her nod of approval for Tom.  Is Johnny next to approve?

    We'll see. He  may wait to see how it goes. Two or three years is about all she had managed so far. Some of her relationships were less than that. Who knows what the future holds for them. Only the shadow knows. I really love that line about the Shadow. 😉
