    Fair enough - Stuart seems to be an exceptionally good house keeper! LOL ETA: Thinking about it, I'd love for him to get a story this year where he gets his shit together and moves out and suddenly the Wolowitz house is pure chaos! hahaha

    I don't care to see the kids but the set dressers could do a better job trying to sell the idea that there are kids living in the house. I mean, Halley is already a toddler - she'd spread her toys everywhere!

    The first post from last year I could find was on tape night. So don't worry, he'll put up a picture soon enough.

    Penny's sister?

    If we go by the actor's ages as a point of reference Penny's mom could have had Randall at about 19/20 years, Penny in her early 30s and the mysterious sister somewhen in between in her early to mid 20s. It would all make sense with the other remarks. The only thing that may not fit is the Wyatt remark that sounds like he doesn't have any grandkids at all. But maybe he just really meant it literally - as in plural and not just the one kid. Plus he wants them "to grow up in a house without wheels " - maybe that's the kind of home where the sister lives. lol

    What in the world are you talking about? I once got cross with you for bringing up some nonsense about the Handmaiden's Tale and misapplying your observations to Sheldon in the most OOC way ever. Like, I honestly don't care about you guys complaining all day and night cause at this point it's like white noise but seriously, nobody voted for Trump because of Sheldon. The only people on this forum who actually did are die hard Lenny fans and hate Sheldon for being such a terrible person. So how does that work out for your little theory?

    And to add: There are still a lot of people running around undiagnosed for one reason or other. As the story goes the quirks of the characters were inspired by some IT people Prady worked with back in the day and at that time a lot of the disorders that are more easily diagnosable today were poorly understood then. I wouldn't be surprised if the quirks and flavour of the guys are based on people with some undiagnosed disorder or something. So yes, there are people like Sheldon out there. And like Leonard, and Howard, and Raj. Real life is fun like that.

    Yeah, that's one of the running gags with her ~promiscuous lifestyle~ or whatever you wanna call it. It's not just that the writers paint her as someone who had a lot of sexual partners but also as someone who is presumably a bit reckless when it comes to protected intercourse so that she worries she's gotten pregnant every other month or so. I don't think she has a literal box full of used pregnancy tests - but she has one in her Leonard box, the first one of many as she explained.

    Oh, definitely! I'd also say that while he found himself kicking and screaming against any sort of change prior to this it was also established over and over again that he latched onto Amy pretty much immediately and couldn't let go of her even if he wanted. In early S4 there were quite a few episodes where he'd ponder or even try to end their friendship/relationship but couldn't do it. Most prominently, obviously, in Zazzy. The idea that Sheldon would be happy without Amy was pretty much dead on arrival cause the writers had already decided otherwise.

    As an out-of-universe reason, totally! If I'd have these two at my disposal I'd use the opportunity as well. They hit the jackpot with this casting choice. ❤️

    [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 12

    'Weird' is not that much of a strong word so I guess that may be part of our communication issue here. As it's been pointed out 'weird' is pretty much the show's modus operandi. It's not necessarily a bad thing cause 'weird' leads to a lot of funny situations. Secondly, nobody is saying that there can't or shouldn't develop any sort of relationship between the Fowlers and the gang. The point is merely that it's surprising the writers do this right now and in the way hinted at SDCC. I mean it's not like they wrote Penny an Mrs Fowler to be BFF material in the episode so after years and years of barely a glimpse where does this sudden interest come from? I'm curious to see what reason the writers came up with.

    It's weird because it's unusual with these specific characters (meaning: Amy's parents). We haven't seen them hang out with the gang in any capacity (remember: until recently we didn't even know Amy had a dad!) so it's curious that they apparently start bugging them for some reason all of a sudden while Shamy are away on their honeymoon, no less. With other parents like Beverly there's an established relationship already so it's not like "Shamy spend time with the bride's mother in law" but rather "Shamy spend time with Sheldon's friend who happens to be his best friend's mother". They have an established relationship here that started when Beverly showed up back in the day and it turns out she and Sheldon instantly formed a bond that lasts to this day. There is no such bond between Amy's parents and any of the gang to our knowledge.

    Kathy Bates is one of those actors that have been in a gazillion things. Personally, I loved her in Six Feet Under.

    [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 12

    Counterpoint: Kathy Bates played her perfectly the way I imagined her from Amy's ever increasingly weird stories about her mom and the first actress' performance matched those stories less and less to the point that I and many others (from what I have seen) had a hard time reconciling the two. Of course, the issue is that back then Amy was just in a few episodes and they barely sketched out her character, let alone her mother's.
