  1. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    I've also always been a fan of those Sheldon and Howard episodes! Jim and Simon have such great chemestry and it also always brings out some wonderful nuances to their characters. <3
  2. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    They don't write Sheldon as someone with ASD so it's no wonder they don't add whatever symptoms you want to see in little Shelly. They always had that philosophy so I'm not surprised they stuck with it. I would have been shocked if they suddenly went to write YS with an accurate ASD checklist in mind, tbqh. And while it doesn't match your preferred diagnosis it surely matches the general ambiguity of adult Sheldon's issues which can vary a lot as the plot demands it. Certain symptoms also may not necessarily meant to be seen as such, like the "avoids eye contact in a handful of episodes" thing you like to bring up which strikes me as a rare occurrence and could simply be chalked up to a bit of shyness from the writers point of view which in result doesn't make them think of that detail the same way you do. Simple as that. Well, maybe they try to lure people in with a softer angle before shit hits the fan? lol

    I love me some Sheldon in "heart eyes mode":
  4. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    I'm also always a fan of when Sheldon gets properly called out on his BS. It's probably why Leonard sometimes annoyed me to no end cause when they still lived together he kept bending over backwards to accommodate the most ridiculous nonsense for no reason. Ugh. As for Leslie and Barry Idk that fans dislike the characters. Admittedly, I'm not the biggest fan of Leslie because the writers didn't really know what to do with her and the rebuttal towards Sheldon was literally just her calling him "dumbass". Sure, it was funny how that riled him up but I much prefer a proper science smack down like some that Shamy had and where Amy effortlessly verbally kicked his ass. lol Anyway, both characters are not on the show because of actor availability so it's not like people voted them out because they disliked them. Currently Bert is in the "Caltech colleague that riled Sheldon up" slot although he's not as antagonistic as Leslie and Barry.

    And he does exactly that these days: make an effort to do better. Which is why I prefer him now than in the past where he was just a jerk who didn't give a shit. Idk how people buy into this "but he was clueless and innocent" nonsense as an excuse for his behaviour then. It didn't make things better, it just enabled him to continue not giving a shit.

    It's a plot about Leonard and Penny dealing with one of their family members. That's enough for me to count. /shrugs
  7. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    See, that's why you have to agree on a definition if you want to quantify these things more objectively.
  8. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Tomorrow. lol Penny bonding with Beverly actually is an ongoing plot continued from 9x23-10x01.
  9. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    I'll be looking forward to your pm then! What would be most interesting to me for the sake of the argument here would be: - Total screen time in 4A vs 4B - Who is in those scenes? (Lenny, Shamy, or any other combination of characters?) - Bonus question: Is Sheldon actually interrupting/interfering with an ongoing Lenny plot? (This is surely the most subjective so we'd need to define what constitutes as an "interruption/interference" and an "ongoing plot".)
  10. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Not to me but apparently to others who don't watch the show and think Sheldon is still hanging out in 4A all the time. Yes, I think in hindsight it's a good move to use the sets more equally.
  11. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    I was hoping you'd say that! LOL Well, I guess if Tensor is really really bored he could check how often/long Sheldon is actually in 4A vs. everybody else.
  12. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    The point is though they don't use 4A for that one specific purpose. They have group hangouts there and the occasional other plot (PALS, Lenny +Howardette, Lenny +Raj) but it's not the "Sheldon intrudes into Lenny's privacy" zone. Honestly, before they went with the idea of Shamy moving into 4B I also thought that whoever gets 4A will have to deal with intruders all the time cause they didn't use 4B all that much. The last few seasons with Penny living more in 4A than 4B the set was mostly gathering dust. Turns out though once Shamy moved into 4B it's used more than ever. Judging by all the plots since the move it probably has the same or if not more screen time than the 4A set.
  13. The episode was filmed in April and with her having the baby somewhen now in autumn (with the show already writing in a scenario for her maternity leave so I guess it's not that long for her anymore) there really wouldn't be anything to see at that point back then. Also, not every hint of a tummy on a woman means pregnancy. Sometimes it's just a good lunch or a different posture. Human bodies a fun like that.
  14. Whatever tummy she had was surely not because of a 2 months pregnancy.
  15. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    That and Jim's delivery was what made it so funny to me. I felt so sorry for Sheldon but also couldn't stop laughing. ahahaha Same!! The promo pictures with them already look adorable. <3
