  1. Oh, I see, thanks, it must have been awkward for them! You know, on social media some people (that I guess didn't watch the whole thing) were saying things like "You can see they hate each other at this point, look at their faces" or something along those lines, LOL!
  2. What was the joke about?
  3. To be honest, the writers have never handled the writing and publishing process of a paper very realistically. The whole super-heavy element subject in S. 7 (if I remember correctly) was a hot mess, as well as Sheldon writing in only one night the paper on Leonard's idea in S. 8. They have done their worst from this PoV with the super-asymmetry project (which is exactly the reason why I'm not fond of this plot) so I wouldn't be surprised if the guest stars in the following episode play experimental physicist who, just a short time after the publication of the paper, find experimental evidence of this theory, whatever it entails.
  4. Well, my hope is that, after that, Prady might be more aware fans want a full-cast photoshoot and pitches the idea with WB/CBS, for sure he has more voice with them than with a random newspaper. What I think will happen, instead, is that , the complaints will be ignored, as usual. Internet backslash comes and goes...I've seen many hard-core fan accounts being disappointed in the show for some time now, some of them have almost stopped posting, but in the grand scheme of things, this is of no importance to TPTB, they make their "numbers" with casual viewers.
  5. From what I saw online, fans were complaining about Prady himself deleting their posts, but if also EW did that, it is bananas indeed!
  6. To be fair, as far as I know and correct me if I'm wrong, it was Prady who deleted some comments, but he also took a lot of time discussing with some fans about the subject (there was a long discussion that got deleted too). He explained it was not his call and he had had no control over the editorial decision EW made. I get fans were voicing their frustration (which is also mine, I'm not very impressed with that article either) but they devoted it towards the wrong guy. Obviously he didn't want his relationship with EW being jeopardized for something he didn't do...Hopefully, anyway, he now is aware there is a problem and (if he chooses to) can find a way to fix it.
  7. i had corrected the post, as soon as I remembered it, as I said, not a big fan of LOTR or The Goonies, LOL!
  8. Stranger Things is kind of a big deal nowadays...Plus Astin was in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and in The Goonies, I can see why (if he was referring to him, of course) Prady might be excited. I myself love Stranger Things, so I'm excited! Not a fan of The Goonies and LOTR, instead!
  9. Happy Holidays to all my Shamy friends! I haven't been much around lately, Real Life right now is a bit on the way of my Fangirl-Life, but, other than that, Shamy rules!
  10. I must admit I prefer this to have Penny pregnant by accident, which could have been another way to have her change her mind
  11. Thanks for the report @GadgetGirl375, much appreciated! I guess that might be the way the writers use to make Penny change her mind about babies. Once Leonard is going to "have a child" without her (albeit just biologically), she realizes she wants to have kids with him.
  12. Thank you so much @Silver1984! It seems you liked the episode very much, happy you had such a good time! I'm very happy too that Shamy collaboration is not over, the episode sounds very good to me!
  13. That's what Johnny Galecki thinks about possible spin offs https://www.news.com.au/entertainment/tv/why-the-big-bang-theory-stars-are-conflicted-about-shows-end/news-story/308bd08413de98bc46081706c0dcd35c "There were rumours of a Big Bang spin-off without Parsons — which Galecki emphatically denies: “Oh, absolutely not. The show could not continue without Jim.” The same could surely be said about Roseanne, Galecki’s other regular gig, which spawned The Connors after its titular star was fired. “They are very different situations,” he reasons, “but I can tell you that no one has any interest (in a Big Bang Theory spin-off).”
  14. I'm disappointed for the outcome of Shamy joint work, I would have really wanted them to succeed. Anyway, Jim and Mayim's acting was outstanding in showing how sad and angry Shamy were. The bed scene was a very nice one. I can't say I liked the episode (also, well...mostly, for the totally inaccurate way it depicted the writing process) but I liked Shamy very much in this one.
  15. Well, in my field one starts a bibliographic research before writing an article, to know if somebody else came up with the same idea and, more generally, to understand the framework and establish connections between their theory and the pre-existing ones. Then, while working on the subject, other references are collected. In this way, when one finishes the paper, the Bibliography is almost completed, one can add some other items here and there, but no big deal. Cross-referencing should also be an important part of the whole process. The only explanation I can come up with is that Sheldon and Amy really thought they were the first who thought about super-asymmetry and didn't care too much of collecting a bibliography, but as I said that's the very reason to make a preliminary bibliographic research. As for the second question, it depends on what the Russian article said, in the episode it wasn't clear at all. They used the term "disprove", which should mean the scientist made an experiment whose results showed super-asymmetry is wrong. If that is the case, Shamy wasted their time and there's nothing to be done, maybe (if it is in his field of interest) Leonard can replicate the experiment just to be sure it is correct, but if it is, super-asymmetry is over. It can also be that what was in the article made them realize of some huge Mathematical mistakes they made. This could be less serious, maybe they can fix the problem. If the scientist simply stated the reasons why he thought super-asymmetry is the wrong approach, then they can do as you suggested, just explaining in the paper why they disagree with the Russian. In Theoretical Physics that happens all the time. But, TBH, judging from how devastated they were, I don't think it was just a difference of opinions, the Russian scientist made some compelling argument against super-asymmetry. All of this, of course, holds true in the real world. In TBBT world, I guess we'll never know what has happened, and, as to now, I'm pretty sure we'll never hear about super-asymmetry (as well as of all the other failed projects) again. If that's just a styling and ordering problem, or they wanted to check if they wrote the references correctly in all their details, in my field it's very rare these days to actually go to the library, as Leonard and Raj did, one simply uses databases, like MathSciNet, that collect articles from all times. Doing a cross-references check, instead, should be part of the writing process. TBH, I wasn't really sure of what Leonard and Raj were doing, it seemed they were both researching new material and checking the items probably Shamy suggested them were written properly. In any event, it was something the authors should have been doing by themselves.
