  1. @FugsytheSquirrel, I assume that the servers crashing is due to the volume of people looking to get tickets in these final weeks. Only 90 regular tickets went up on Monday, so that probably means lots of VIPs. That doesn’t necessarily mean there will be any kind of special guest stars, though. There’s no way to know from week to week how many standbys will get in. You might want to try for a regular ticket another week before you finalize travel plans and gamble on the standbys.

  3. I do. Feel free to send me a message if you end up needing help. Tickets for the Apr 23 show should go up on Mar 25 around 8:30am PST.
  4. They load the ticket list from: http://tvtickets.com/api/public/index.php/available-shows When Big Bang tickets are up, you can see its info there, MaxTicket being the relevant field. It's public data, of course.
  5. Judging by what happened earlier in the season, regular tickets seem to go up in an automated fashion, so even on holidays. Standby must involve something manual because they only seem to go up when Audiences Unlimited is in the office. They'll likely go up tomorrow. There are definitely a large number of VIPs at this point. Some fun (or not so fun) data I got off their website in the last two weeks: last Monday 120 regular tickets went up; this week there were 110. I think the studio seats like 250.
  6. Yes, they showed the D&D episode, which I thought was pretty funny. Here’s a short summary of the plot, though it probably sounds dull without the jokes: Amy and Sheldon are appearing on Wil’s Professor Proton show, and Shatner is there. Sheldon is so excited to meet him that he throws up on him (off screen, of course). When Sheldon goes to apologize to Wil later on, he hears the D&D game going on inside the house. After the guys find out, they all want to go, and they try to get Wheaton to invite them, but he declines. Eventually he does invite Leonard over the phone, insis
  7. If anyone would like help with tickets in the coming weeks, feel free to message me. When I was getting tickets a few weeks ago, I spent some time checking out how their website ticket process currently works, and while it is more annoying than it used to be, getting tickets is still very doable. For those with standby tickets in the coming weeks who are wondering about it, I can tell you that at last Tuesday’s taping, I heard about 6-10 standby ticket holders got in.
  8. I attended yesterday’s taping. I don’t have much time today, but I can answer a few of the above questions, though most of it is just my opinion, any you'll all have to watch the episode to form your own opinions. To me, nothing really contradicted what we already know of Sheldon wanting kids. I think it’s more that he’s never actually interacted with infants or small children, and has shown no interest in doing so with the Wolowitz’ kids or any others. We've only ever seen Sheldon talk about kids in a theoretical, clinical kind of way. So my impression is that this is Amy’s sneaky way
  9. I did not attend yesterday, but I found this on Instagram (attendee username removed in case they want privacy).
  10. Yes, exactly! I know some Lenny fans will be disappointed at the lack of scenes for that couple in this episode. Assuming that these fans enjoy the characters of Leonard and Penny individually, I hope they'll be willing to look at this episode for what it is instead of hating it for what it isn't. Otherwise those fans will miss out on some nice moments of friendship. I've always felt that Leonard and Penny's enduring friendships with the odd (and often difficult) Sheldon and Amy is part of what makes them so endearing and part of what shows us, the audience, a lot of their best and kindest cha
  11. Behind the scenes everyone seemed in positive spirits and had lots of good energy, which is why I don't think anyone knew about Stephen Hawking yet. Melissa Rauch had a tough time getting out one of her lines about the body shots. She joked that her teacup was actually full of straight bourbon (or something along those lines). There were at least 3 different spots where the actors had to wait extra long for the audience to stop laughing. One being a Raj moment followed by a joke from Leonard, the other 2 being in the tag scene. Watching the actors' facial expressions during these long moments
  12. To those who asked, I did have a great time at this taping, thank you. My opinion is no doubt highly colored by seeing it live, but I think it’s my favorite episode of this season. It was a very friendship-focused episode, imo, and it was especially nice to have some scenes for the girls again. Both Penny and Bernadette were excellent friends to Amy, particularly Penny who planned things. The quilting party was Penny’s idea, and came from her thinking about what she thought Amy would love. When it turned out that Amy’s expectations were different, she and Bernadette shifted gears and made
  13. Here’s the long summary. If you prefer lots of surprises, obviously skip this. Plenty of stuff is missing and/or may be mixed up. Some things are hard to describe, like Dr. Wolcott’s oddities and Amy’s reactions/physical comedy, so you’ll just have to wait and see on those aspects. I’ll post my own opinions and try to answer any questions anyone has sometime later, since I don’t have time now. “The Reclusive Potential” Main cast in 4A: Sheldon receives a letter from Dr. Wolcott, a fellow scientist whose work he is interested in since it may be vital to his string th
  14. Short summary: ”The Reclusive Potential” Penny and Bernadette surprise Amy with a quilting bee bachelorette party, complete with tea to drink. When they discover it’s not the wild night of poor decision making that Amy had wanted, they take her to a bar. The guys accompany Sheldon to visit Dr. Walcott, an unusual, reclusive man who lives in a cabin in the woods. Alone, hyper-focused on his work, and kinda crazy, he has done some work that will help Sheldon in his string theory efforts. Not a bachelor party in any typical sense (Sheldon didn’t want one), meeting Dr. Wolcott never
  15. I attended tonight’s taping. We were unaware of Stephen Hawking’s passing. I’m not sure if the cast or crew knew at that time (we got out at 9:30), but I didn’t see any signs of anyone being aware. Hawking was not in any pretaped scenes for this episode.
  16. Thanks for the interesting post, @hokie3457. I know a lot of people here despise Sheldon, and you’re right that that’s why I led with the Penny example. There was plenty of Sheldon ego at play in that episode, no doubt, and plenty of naivety too. I'm not saying Sheldon is some perfect hero, merely that what Ramona did was clearly wrong, and I don't see Sheldon as responsible for what she chose to do. As for listening to his friends, even when it appeared at first that he was ignoring Penny's advice, in the very next scene we find out that he did listen. In fact, it was less than 30 seconds
  17. I wouldn’t call someone who was robbed a participant in their robbery, nor a person who was assaulted a participant in their assault. It’s an insult in any context where someone was unwilling or a victim, imo. Is that being pedantic? Maybe. But posting assorted nonsense on the internet is kind of why we’re all here, isn’t it? Anyway, the rest of my post wasn’t directed at you, since your position on the matter was otherwise clear. It’s just that quoting you was a jumping off point for addressing the opinions of the others that you referenced.
  18. I tend to prefer reading along to posting these days, but I can’t resist throwing in my thoughts on this. Imagine if a colleague or client that Penny works with started mistaking her kindness for romantic flirtation, not unlike the Billy Bob Thornton character. And when Penny finally figures out that the guy has the wrong idea, she tells him right away that it isn’t going to happen and begins listing off the reasons: they do business together, she’s married, etc. Then imagine that the guy kisses her anyway, despite her clear, verbal lack of consent. Would you say that Penny was a ‘participa
  19. Tickets are up for 8/15 right now. Upcoming taping dates: The Big Bang Theory★ 8/15/17 ★ 8/22/17 ★ 8/29/17 ★ 9/12/17 ★ 9/19/17
  20. He had apparently been carrying the ring around with him, so I assume he's been wanting to give it to her, but for whatever reason he hadn't done so yet. That's all I meant by 'holding back on a proposal'. Being happy with his status quo and not wanting to change things is certainly another possible reason.
  21. Back in 10.5, Sheldon expressed his fear of someday hurting Amy the same way that his father hurt his mother (i.e. infidelity). Penny knew he wouldn’t do that and Amy didn’t seem worried about his outburst either. And, of course, Sheldon himself acknowledged that he didn’t really want to see other people. Despite the absurdity of it all, in retrospect I wonder how much something like that continued to weigh on his mind. Fears are often irrational, and ones rooted in childhood experiences can be especially tough to let go. Sheldon had been holding back on a proposal for quite a while, and
  22. It's still hard for me to imagine Ramona aggressively pursuing Sheldon for romance after the way her story went years ago. Aggressively pursuing him for help on something she's working on would make so much more sense.
  23. This is something I’ve been considering too. I can’t see Sheldon or Amy ever cheating on one another. That sort of mundane drama just doesn’t fit those two. The only thing I can think of that could even begin to come between them would be their dedication to science. Science has already succeeded at pulling Amy away for a few months as of episode 23, and it’s possible that the writers might want to expand on that idea even more. There have been a number of episodes over the years that display Sheldon’s worries over his scientific progress or lack thereof. With this military project
  24. I’m not sure of the posts/posters Tensor was referring to, but it's fine if he doesn't want to give examples; I wouldn’t want to name individuals either. That's why my response went on on to concede the fact that I might have missed something, and I made my main point in the second paragraph anyway. That’s all I have to say about it. I don’t think people who share spoilers are trying to antagonize Lenny fans. They are just passing along what the writers have chosen to write. It’s not like the news changes if the one sharing it is a Shamy or a Lenny or someone who has no interest in ‘ships
