  1. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    The title is "The Collaboration Contamination" Unless the writers come up with a new "collaboration" Shamy's project is the only storyline of that kind that's still active. So fingers crossed for a Shamy science story!??
  2. Season 11 Taping Night Chat Thread.

    Hi everyone! Neither Sheldon nor Amy are religious so it's a bit of a no-brainer that there won't be a church wedding, imho.
  3. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    YAY! Only one week!! ["The Final Countdown" plays muffled in the background] I also wanted to rewatch S10 before the S11 premiere - not sure I have time for that but we'll see. At least I finished reading the Shamy S7 thread which was a lot of fun even though the season was pretty tough on many fans. It was interesting to see where everyone's mind was back then and how accurate (or not) their predictions and wishes would turn out. haha
  4. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Really ! Who used Lenny as human lab rats ? Who got Lenny a surprise roommate ? How did any of these cause issues for Lenny as a couple? I remember them sticking together and calling Sheldon (and Amy if you mean the thing from S8) out on this. Lenny standing up to outside problems is exactly the kind of trouble they need more of cause otherwise you're left with plots of them fighting with each other or standing behind the kitchen island and doing nothing. I mean, if that's your thing then by all means more power to you but I'm not into that. For the most part Sheldon is out of their hair now and plots where he directly caused trouble for Lenny (like the surprise room mate) were the exception rather than the rule last season. People claimed before every taping how Sheldon would surely do this or that annoying thing to Lenny and in the end none of that happened cause he was mostly off doing his own thing with Amy leaving Lenny alone.
  5. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    Any episode in the first half would be ideal for that cause in the second half the taping and broadcast dates are much closer together (though they managed in S7). In S9 they had taped the episode 3 or 4 weeks ahead of broadcasting with no fuss. There's enough room to move around the sweeps episodes as well as we've with 9x07 as well. So something this year would be my guess. I hope it's something like that as well. Though I can easily see Sheldon being freaked out by something surrounding the preparations or wedding or something. He's a bundle of anxiety issues sometimes. Not that I'd think he has doubts about marriage itself but there could easily be a little thing that could worry him enough to bring Jedi PP in, like someone says something or someone's coming to the wedding or whatever that he needs some reassurance from. Like in 9x11: he was sure of his decision to finally make love with Amy but he was still worried he might ruin it somehow so there was a bit of pep talk from PP cause deep down Sheldon knew it was the right decision. <3
  6. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    Yess!! I want to see her new lab and whatever else she got! <3 I also wonder when Bob Newhart will make his appearance as mentioned in the DT. If they already know he'll be back this season I suppose he's scheduled for one of the next episodes, maybe sweeps? And since he's playing Sheldon's subconsciousness these days I wonder how that'll turn out.
  7. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    Yeah, the start of the season sounds relatively balanced so far and I wonder if that's due to Holland and how it'll continue for the rest of the season. Only time will tell but I like the sound of the first episodes. I mean, sure, for Sheldon and Amy a lot is revolving around their engagement. But they both also got stories about something job related and hanging out with others from the gang. I'd like this mix to continue.
  8. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    After reading TRs for over two years now my personal experience is that episodes usually play out a lot more light hearted and funnier than anything written down. It's not a dig against anyone sharing spoilers cause I'm sure everyone is trying to describe the scenes and stories to the best of their ability. It's just that this cast is so god damn charming and talented that you have to see it for yourself to really get a feeling for the scene. <3
  9. Cast, Crew, And Bbt News

    Yes, it's in the YS thread that Iain Armitage will be there as well. I think the two presenting together would make sense for promotion purposes. Also, they make a cute duo.

    Well, the guys slept naked together at the North pole when the heating went down... LMAO

    Nitpicking got me through several years of studying contractual law - it goes so well with my geeky nature! LOL
  13. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Actual quote from the episode: "Article three, as it pertains to this project, Dr. Sheldon Cooper promises to abstain from all insulting or disrespectful language directed toward Howard Wolowitz, including but not limited to mockery of engineering, his height, his hair, his wardrobe, and his insane belief that the Ghost Rider movie was, quote, not that bad." Bold for emphasis. The way the clause is formulated it means 1) that it concerns their work only and 2) that "mockery of engineering" applies to situations where Sheldon would be insulting or disrespecting Howard personally. It's not a general "can't say anything negative about engineering ever" clause. And so far he's stuck to it with only technical slip ups. In 10x02 he was talking to the General so the clause doesn't apply, in 10x15 there was a little remark about Howard's branch of engineering vs. "real engineering" which was arguably not pertaining their project as Sheldon was all hyped up about the train engine in his living room and not talking about the gyroscope. We could probably debate the technicality of mocking engineering in some form while Howard is present but that would likely go nowhere so I have no interest in that. If there are any other scenes by all means dig them out.
  14. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Oh I'm watching the show just fine and "a lot of past to overcome" is exactly what I see happening right now cause there are more and more stories in which the writers have the two of them working to overcome their animosity by providing opportunities for some bonding experiences. Sure, it's not a massive "paradigm shift", especially not a sudden one cause every change in this show takes freaking ages to take hold but still, doesn't mean it isn't there at all. Part of the issue is probably that we don't get many Sheldon/Howard stories to begin with due to the PALS vs HBR(+St) dichotomy of many stories in the past years. But if you look at the two characters' interactions I feel they toned down the animosity a lot, like even with Sheldon's anti engineer sentiments we had like what? 1 measly joke last year? Their interactions are really far from becoming a pissing match every time these days. And don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Howard and Sheldon are "BFFs 5everrrrr!!!1" now nor do I think they ever will be. But while there are still some mean comments in either direction for the sake of humour the show has repeatedly used both characters' family background as a means to show a softer side to their friendship. It fits rather well with the "family by choice" theme the show is so fond of and while these two may not end up being each other's "brother from another mother" being "the weird cousin you occasionally hang out with" will do just fine as well. Obviously YMMV.

    Well, looks like there's one pic with Amy's hand with the ring in the lower right corner - but just barely! LOL
  16. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    Well, there are people who subscribe to the idea that everything will be alright no matter what Amy says. LOL
  17. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    That tea mug conveniently placed in front of Amy's hand is cracking me up! LOL

    I think she means that it looks like she photobombs Kaley and Melissa??
  19. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    And Sheldon gets the brunt of their insults. Give and take, yadda yadda... I mean, the show itself pointed out that the feud between Howard and Sheldon started because of Howard and then neither of them could let it go and it escalated. But for the past years they've made some efforts to mellow the relationship and we got a bunch of episodes with them bonding over family issues like their trip to Houston, Sheldon comforting Howard after his mother dies, Sheldon reassuring Howard he'll be a good dad, and now some more about their dads. It's good continuity here. So as it is with pretty much all the friendships on this show: Under all the barbs and snide remarks there's a lot of heart and when push comes to shove the gang will stick together and support each other. <3
  20. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    Anything is possible but I guess it mostly depends on the plot of the episode and if 11x03 is super relevant for it. Right now they seem to be eager to show everyone 11x01 which makes sense cause both the baby and engagement news are woven into all the episodes in some way and the episode hasn't aired, yet. So it's probably the more satisfying way to fill the audience in.
  21. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Yes, I think they're smoothing off some of Beverly's rough edges like they do with so many of the other characters. Good thing in terms of continuity cause Penny's efforts and basically the whole plot motivation for 9x23-10x01 weren't for naught. Beverly will probably always have a sharp tongue and may not realise when she's neglecting Leonard again but she's trying. Or at least she appears so here.

    Neil Diamond is on tour here - I saw a poster the other day and had to think of Amy and Howard! <3

    OMG Don't remind me! I never posted on the TBBT IMDB boards but lurking there it was a mess. I also hope they discreetly just ignore the topic altogether.
  24. [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    Well, since he was complaining about his ST uniform getting dirty I'd go with the thematically fitting counterpart. But who knows, maybe they were going for a crossover with She-Hulk? Either way though: If that doesn't inspire @luminous for a new fanart I don't know what would! lol
  25. [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    You might want to look up "Orion Slave Girl" to get the joke.
