  1. This whole Shamy break-up issue was getting to me, so I decided to leave this maelstrom to itself, concentrating on other things. I'm somehow bothered by the direction this whole plot is taking. Having read the bits and pieces of information provided to us, I'm actually not sure where this is supposed to lead. The whole "miscommunication-trope" is kinda worn out. I understand Shamy morphed into the Lead-couple, now that Lenny are married. As soon as Amy and Sheldon get each other, the show is dead. With that in mind I have mixed feelings about this season, since TPTB will certainly drag this out. I find this whole "asking other people out" dilemma doesn't really fit into the whole Shamy story. It seems vaguely OOC for Sheldon to ask those women out, comedic purpose aside. I can clearly relate to Amy's irritation here. With Sheldon hardly showing any interest in romance during his relationship with Amy, I can only assume this to be pretty hurtful for her. Sheldon's character has always been intriguing to me. Seeing this guy with Asperger's (or whatever, TPTB are rather vague about that) trying to cope with emotions in his unique way, was what hooked me in the first place. I always felt that Amy understood the essence of his personality, that she was aware of the fact, that Sheldon simply isn't able to feel things the way she does. I still believe that Amy broke up with him in order to find out whether she could actually give up on her dreams of a knight in shining armor sweeping her of her feet. For this would surely never happen with Sheldon. I suppose she'll come around and realize that relationships are never that simple. She was certainly drawn to him because of his idiosyncrasies. I really hope the writers aren't planning to use the "guy changes into someone else in order to get the girl" - trope. This whole miscommunication and asking other people out thing is definitely common practice, but it's too common for the Shamy. It feels like the characters are changing into something they are not. I don't want to sound bitter but it's just that I'm losing interest already. I'm pretty sure I'll get hooked again once I see season 9 on screen. I'll probably hold my head in shame for posting my disappointment here. Over and out!
  2. Thanks April! That's really inspired. I very much agree with you, especially the bold part, as I thougt about the same thing. While Sheldon's problems might seem minuscule to others, they pose him great discomfort. I agree that Amy doesn't get the full magnitude of his ideosynchrasies. She has a rudimental understanding of his mindset though. Once they are willing to listen to each other without judging, to tell each other their true feelings despite the risk of getting hurt, then they'll find out they've been on the same page all along. What a woman wants is a reaction. What a man wants is a woman.
  3. I'm with Koops on that one. Tbh, I used to think that Amy and Sheldon would be better off without the RA. But that was probably due to the fact that I feel Romance should not be predictable or planned. Then I thought about Amy and Sheldon not being the usual couple ( and that's what I love about them ). Initially the sole purpuse of the RA was to gain some kind of order and breathing space for Sheldon. It provided structure and predictability to something seemingly chaotic. Naturally we have seen him use the RA to his advantage, either out of egotistic reasons or simple out of apprehension. Still, as the years went by, the RA reformed into a guideline rather than a decree. So Sheldon might have intended to keep Amy from getting to close initially but sure doesn't anymore. The RA serves both of them respectively and takes both their wishes into account. I do see the benefit in this pragmaticality for both Sheldon and Amy. What has started as a control mechanism for Sheldon turned into a lifeline for both of them. This might also be the reason neither one has brought the RA up after the break-up. None of them is ready to let go. Oh, please do!
  4. Thank you very much, Trina! You're the best!
  5. My thoughts exactly. The gang doesn't/didn't take Sheldon and Amy's relationship seriously. The scales will be falling from their eyes though...pretty soon!
  6. You'll have the time of your life!
  7. I wish you all the best for your first day! From my experience first days a rather lax.. You'll be fine.
  8. I don't know how to take a quote from the other forum into this one, but Trina spilled some detail on page 94 of the General spoiler thread. I think there's more on the following pages as well. Also April got some info in the chat. Trina (thanx again!) promised to provide us with a short summary later on... Hope that was helpful Edit: I just saw, April beat me to this..
  9. Amy has been deprived of a normal adolescense by her mother. Usually one would stand up to one's parents at some point. Having a social circle, people who think alike and support you for who you are, is vital for this to occur. Amy had none of that. Only when she met Sheldon and the rest of the gang, she got the opportunity to evolve and define herself. This must have been overwhelming for her. She finally realized that she has the right to do what makes her happy, to stand up for herself. She's been held back by restrictions and rules her whole life. Maybe it got her to think, if Sheldon is holding her back in a way. Once the dust settles, she'll recognize Sheldon as her one constant in life. The only one who truly understands her. She'll come around in a while, I'm sure.
  10. Thanks again! I really appreciate this. Bold part: Oh, I'm looking forward to this one. I love it when Sheldon sings..
  11. Yes, I get it's for the comedic factor, but why exactly are the girls going through with Amy's mother's request to lock her in the closet? That's more disturbing than funny.
  12. Thanks April! Did you get some more Shamy-related detail? Need a fix
  13. Good Lord! Boy, can I see where Amy is coming from now. A mother like this, no friends, being bullied all the time...No wonder she's desperate for attention and intimacy. Finally she's found Sheldon and he's also reluctent to be close with her. Well, I pretty much understand why she's so frustrated.
