  1. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    I agree about Sheldon early on being the noble one! Actually I didn't dislike Leonard in early seasons as well, I started disliking him in like seasons 5-6, in early seasons I feel he was pretty cool, but still, as a woman I found someone like Sheldon who literally has 0 interests in your looks super refreshing and likable comparing to the other 3 guys who kept freaking out about Penny's looks : )
  2. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    what did he say to Alex? and about Mrs Davies - are you referring to the slave comment? I don't actually remember much of those but I do agree Sheldon can sometimes say horrible things!! I'm not actually bothered by his 'you're a slave to your baser urges' line to Penny or anybody else (was that Mrs Davies? I feel like it was her but I can't remember the context for the life of me) cause I feel he judges guys, specifically early Howard and Leonard, for their 'baser urges' in the same way. That's funny arrogant Sheldon I can live with cause it's not sexist (and in the end, the joke's on him, cause baser urges are actually fun and he's kinda missing out on smth that could be enjoyable). My issue with him is some outright cruel things he occasionally says to some people, for example about parents (but also much more), like a lot of things he said to Leonard about Beverly and how he said to Howard 'I can see why your dad left you'. Things like that are totally over the line for me and I don't understand why the writers won't make if not Leonard than at least Howard punch him for that. Also the 'women are like sandwiches' I don't remember that line as well, what episode is it from?

    I still love Sheldon but I agree with the bold part so much! When it comes to Sheldon's attitude to women I definitely preferred him in the early seasons. I felt he was so open-minded and had no moral judgments and it was refreshing. When he started dating Amy they've made him into this typical jealous judgmental guy and I hated that : ( I've made my peace with that, I can't stop loving him because of that cause I love so many other things about him, but I definitely found him more inspiring and refreshing in earlier seasons

    Thank you so much!! @Babar
  5. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    I don't remember a lot about Leonard's backstory so you guys are probably right! That said, I mentioned Leonard's dad more as a side note, whatever his childhood was even if it was that tragic (tbh whenever the show does remarks about Leonard/Sheldon/Howard being pushed to the toilets in school and stuff my mind just blocks it, I can't believe that stuff even happens to anybody : ( ), he's been adult long enough and he can say no to people now and even to Penny who's the love of his life so I just find it implausible he can not outright say 'no' to Sheldon... I do agree it's a sitcom so mainly it's the writers choice cause they think it's a source of jokes so we can not completely get rid of it, I just wish it was handled differently and Leonard had more of Howard stance maybe, being more clear and open when he's aggravated by something Sheldon does. One thing I would disagree with you on - @bfm - when I was talking about ignoring I meant that some people are just naturally chill and are not bothered easily, that's how I perceived Leonard a lot in earlier seasons. Sometimes Sheldon would say something completely offensive but Leonard would seem generally chill about it, not like he was holding back or suppressing anger. So in that sense, I preferred it to passive aggression.
  6. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    I love Sheldon but I wouldn't treat people the way he does and I wouldn't tolerate a friend like him. That's why I don't get Leonard. Penny usually calls Sheldon out on his bs, as well as Howard. Raj less but he seems to care less. Amy's not exactly 'calling him out' but she's trying to change him in other ways (and it's working). Bernadette doesn't seem to care but when she does care she calls him out as well. But Leonard... why is he tolerating that? I just don't get it. I know the show made a joke by introducing his mom in S2 that she was exactly as demanding as Sheldon, but come on... He had a normal dad and plenty of other examples around him. I don't hate Leonard, but I definitely liked him more in earlier seasons when he at first would stand up for himself somewhat and after would just ignore most of Sheldon's rudeness, genuinely ignore without getting aggravated, but now he seems just passive aggressive often, and I wish instead he stood his ground.

    I'm so happy for Amy < 3

    Kiss/Cheating related - Idk, I always said I didn't see Leonard's boat kiss as cheating, and I def don't see Sheldon & Ramona kiss as cheating. Leonard said he didn't enjoy it, Sheldon acted like he didn't enjoy it. That's enough for me.
  9. 1024 'The Long Distance Dissonance' (May 11)

    Aw ok, well I didn't see those as a fat jokes at all! Just curious if anybody else felt the same way? Don't get me wrong, I do think the writers treat Leonard like crap a lot, but this story line in particular I didn't think it was one of those moments! (Or maybe I'm just clueless like Sheldon) But I do think that would be really rude/awkward towards Johnny, idk how these things are handled in the tv industry tbh, but unless he has some clause in his contract that he has to maintain certain body image , I think it's super awkward for the writers to mention Leonard's weight in any way
  10. 1024 'The Long Distance Dissonance' (May 11)

    Idk if it's just me but I didn't read it that way at all! I thought Penny was annoyed at Leonard for fixating on a chocolate bar instead of listening/watching more carefully and giving her more details to gossip about... I watched without subtitles though, so I might have missed some direct weight joke?
  11. 1020 The Recollection Dissipation.

    I really loved it! Bernie-Stuart-Howard plot was less fun than I expected (no fun at all tbh), but I really liked the Sheldon plot! Sheldon & Penny laundry room scene was so hilarious & classic, I loved it. And Amy was so cute in this episode, I really liked their dynamic, like she was kinda definitely the wiser one among the 2 of them, but it wasn't right in your face and overdone like in some other eps... and Soft Kitty, aww < 3 I never even knew about law suits or whatever it was, but I'm happy it's back!
  12. [Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10

    biiiiiiiiig thanks for your friend for also writing Sheldon's plot, and for you bringing it to us!! : ) I'm actually kinda disappointed with Penny's plot : ( I mean I'm happy she finally said lying at her job makes her unhappy - not flirting with doctors or anything, although I imagine that too, but lying about meds as I understood that - because I think any person with consciense SHOULD feel bad about that , and Penny's always been very human and very kind, so once she took that job and was joking about lying like that it was kinda sad to me, I feel it was very OOC for her. So I'm happy she acknowledged that, but I'm sad she's still stuck with that job : ( At least I hope she's paid off her loans by now and soon will be able to move to a job that might be less money , but makes her happier

    Really happy for a plot involving Penny's career!!
  14. [Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10

    100000 likes! I could never put that as eloquent as you do, but that's the vibe I'm getting, Leonard used to be a sweet shy guy, now , with episodes like that, I'm getting some chauvinist/sexist vibes.... So he wants to have a hot wife, always only compliments her hotness, yet he's been looking less attractive last few seasons, YET when she actually does stuff that helps her look beautiful, he complains! That said, I'm not as much angry at Leonard as I am at the writers. If it was in character for Leonard I would be mad at him, but I still remember sweet, nice, kind Leonard from earlier seasons, and this just doesn't feel IC for him. Even if the writers are doing that for a break up arc or something like that, I wish they would have found other ways , without destroying Leonard's character. I mean I can't believe that at this point I like Howard way more than Leonard in the sense of respect for women! Howard has grown so much since earlier seasons, and I feel like with Leonard the writers are making him regress
  15. 1018 'The Escape Hatch Identification' (March 9)

    just like I thought from the TR, a really cool funny ep, I see no problems with Shamy or Lenny. If anything , I think Howardette have a problem cause Stuart will definitely try everything to stay with them permanently.
