  1. Since we most likely won't see any Shamy babies unless they jump into the future (not to mention that so far it's all speculation anyway, right?) I don't get the big deal. Even if Amy announces that she is pregnant it's no difference to me knowing that they'll have kids in the future. Instead of "they'll have their kids at some unknown point in the future" it'll be "they'll have their first kid soon*" - so what? (*also as we know "soon" could mean anything from 9 to 12 months in this universe so who knows lol)

    That's assuming Sheldon was only ever married once.

    Of course he was only ever married once. It was clearly stated by the writers that those were Shamy's kids. I guess having Amy pregnant is not so useless after all if people believe that Sheldon Cooper of all people will marry another woman and have kids with her.

    The episode that was taped last night is called The Inspiration Deprivation.

    The guys that accidentally proved super asymetry has gone on a public campaign to get their names associated with the idea so they get the credit (queue in Ellen show bit)

    The University has their own reception for academics to meet with Shamy on their work and the two guys crash the party and Sheldon holds his tongue at Leonard's pleading which results in Amy being the one to freak out in public. 


    Shamy agrees to do a sensory deprivation tank experience to try to calm down from possibly having the Nobel prize scooped from them. It helps Sheldon but sends Amy into a tizzy as the pressure to win as a female is high (only 4 nobel prize winners have been women). -her freak out and inability to keep her emotions in check *could* be another hint to a pregnancy!?

    In other news, Howard buys a scooter (midlife crisis?) Which he then has to sell. To me it was a cute bit and a snapshot into Howard and Bernadette's home life. 

    There's a bit more but there you go. I had so much fun!! 

    Thanks a lot! Glad to hear you had a great time!

    I think the major issue with this story arc is that just as the Penny baby situation and Raj & Anu's courtship is that it is rushed because this is it.  I suppose you can argue that TPTB were dealt an end date before they thought they would have to tie things up, but you can also say "shame on them" for not having a little bit of foresight.  A little bit arrogant on their part to have three major story lines like this shoe-horned into a final season where you still want to have a few filler-episodes that don't advance anything....

    This show has such a weird pacing in general. Sometimes they drag things out foreverrrr and then someone accidentally steps on the gas pedal like

    Yeah I know that.

    To sum it up I'm not a fan of Amy losing her work and then possibly willing to giving it all up. That decision in 12.5 basically caused me to lose interest in this storyline. Wasn't a fan at all of their creative decision personally.

    Gotcha. I would have wanted for Amy to get her project back immediately. Not sure why that episode didn't end with Amy kicking that other dude out of her lab.

    The story required Sheldon to kind of choose and have that moment as a viewer when you might question whether he would take the nomination without her.  Personally, I never thought he would, it was pretty obvious he was going to say without her he wouldn't be in the conversation for a nomination and rightly so he made the correct decision on a human level to turn it down.

    My issue honestly if this was true to character is seeing Amy give up the nomination so easily considering the time and effort she put into the project and how earlier in the season she lost her other projects in an attempt to get her focused solely on this one not only for Sheldon but also the University.

    It was a selfless act willing to give it up, but Amy is a scientist as well and a nomination is a big deal. I'm honestly not sure Amy should have been so willing to step aside considering how the story has actually played out i.e. Losing her other projects specifically.

    Anyway, if they get the nomination or not, or if they get the nomination but never get the Nobel I don't really care as long as they are happy at the end of it. The project has been very underwhelming for me as a Shamy fan, all I care about is their happiness going forward.

    The crux of the story was that Amy would give up the Nobel* for Sheldon and Sheldon would give up the Nobel* for Amy. (*the nomination anyway)

     I meant men who were as intelligent - or perhaps nearly as intelligent - as herself, demonstrated by the fact that they had doctorates, not that they necessarily appealed to her. I can't imagine creepy Kripke appealing to anybody.

    Well, I don't think they're on her level either but point taken.

    The only other men we ever saw who were on Amy's intellectual level were Bert whom she didn't want, Dave

    Nah, neither of these guys appealed to her on an intellectual level. Bert's schtick are punny rock jokes and Dave, bless his heart, was portrayed as a bit dense.

    And she (Amy) should know how important it is to her husband to win a Nobel.

    She does. She told him. JC did everybody skip the episode or what??

    Amy IS the most important thing to him now. He knows how much she contribute to their project and has requested her name be on the nomination as well. As it should be. He was upset with the possibility of her not being on the nomination form. He should not be expected to give up his professional dream of winning a Nobel.

    We just had an episode where Sheldon was willing to give up the Nobel Nomination if Siebert wasn't willing to put Amy on it. Faced with the decision between Amy and a (possible) Nobel he chose Amy.

    Thank you very much ! It seems both series ended when the premise of the series ended - a workplace situation came to an end when the workers lost their jobs and a home-sharing situation ended when a sharer left the home. The premise of TBBT - a group of scientists being friends - isn't going to end, I hope. They can't take their science away and nobody's going to want to see friendships end at this stage.

    A big part of TBBT's premise is also the living situation since it started with Penny moving into 4b so I always thought the show ending with Shamy and/or Lenny moving out would make a nice symmetry. But then again it's similar to Friends in that regard and I think at some point someone (Holland? Lorre??) said in an interview they won't do that so idk...

    Is there video anywhere of the filming of the show from an audience perspective. I've always wondered what it would be like to see this or other sitcoms  being made (but live in Australia) and how it all unfolds for the live audience.

    There's a behind the scenes video about the taping process somewhere. You gotta google for it - Idk if it was from a show or a DVD feature or whatever.

    So I'm glad this latest taping report revealed we're going back to the Nobel prize arc. Even if there's no solution at the end, its comforting the writers didn't forget about it. Also we might more shamy against the world dynamic I love and hopefully some cute moments between them. 

    The Nobel story seems to be the last big story arc of the show so I'm not worried they'll suddenly forget about it. The only thing I'm wondering is how far they'll go with it. Like, will Shamy "just" be nominated in the end or will they actually get the Nobel, you know? Or maybe they won't be nominated at all but that would be a bit much of a downer at this point so Idk if they'll go down that road.

    Keeping me busy during the day and up at night. lol He's at an age when the sleeping schedule changes again so that's causing a bit of trouble for him to adjust.

    But otherwise he's doing fine. He's a cutie pie!

    Oh, I do.  The entire raison d'être for having super-asymmetry is that there were no papers against it.  Of course there were none for it either, and there is a very good reason for that, having to do with conservation laws.    Kaons may be the way forward (as there may, note I said may), be a reason for their decay rates to be different, and their decay paths to be different.  Although according to the CKM Matrix, those asymmetries are predicted so no asymmetry is needed.   It's also worth noting that asymmetry in Kaon decay  has already been awarded Nobel prizes in 1964 and 1980.  If you wish to know more, check out the following links for  eigenstates, eigenvalues, or eigenvectors or linear algebra and tensors.  

    I haven't even finished my morning coffee so no, I'm not interested.

    I was just pointing out where the idea came from in the first place cause ever since this plot came up I've seen people accuse the writers to make it all up without their physics consultant even though he's the one who came up with that in the first place. So there.

    But he got to the point where if you said, "I saw Leonard Nimoy!" they would know who you meant and not say, "Who the hell is Leonard Nimoy?".

    Actually, I don't think that would be the case. Not saying that nobody knows him but it's by far not universal and Spock will always be more recognisable.

    And I feel that Jim will go a similar way. Like, "oh hey, that's Jim Parsons!" - "Who?" - "You know, Sheldon!" - "Oh yes!"

    And I'm not saying that this is necessarily a bad thing.

    But people know his name, is my point. There were posts that implied everyone knew Sheldon but no one knew Jim.

    If you show a picture of Leonard Nimoy to 10 people I think most of them will say something along the lines of "That's Mr. Spock!" cause that's what happens when you land a role as popular as this. You never really leave that role behind, even if you are successful in other jobs. In the end of the day the over-saturation of pop culture is just too strong.

    Yes, but it's possible to get away from it. Leonard Nimoy did,

    Did he though? I'd say most people would still associate Spock with him, may he rest in peace. Heck, I always found it amusing that his autobiographies where titled "I am not Spock", followed up with "I am Spock". lol

  18. The problem I have with Penny changing her mind is that the longer it takes the harder it is to sell to the audience.

    I mean, they could have easily used the sperm donor plot to do exactly that. They could have her react to the situation with the realisation that maybe she wants kids after all. But they didn't. Instead they reinforced her stance and even let her dad and Leonard support her.

    At this point it would just be a hard U-turn* and I'm not sure if I want that with so little time left, tbqh.

    (*btw. contrast to Bernadette who had her reservations, too: the first time the topic came up with Howard her stance was already softened a lot cause it was a deal breaker for Howard, so at this point Penny is already putting her foot down harder than Bernadette did.)

    Does Amy  give a reason why she needs to get Sheldon interested in having kids ? Does she say he's been showing reluctance lately, or changing his mind since Leonard won't have any ?

    Yeah, that part feels kinda weird cause she already knows Sheldon wants a lot of kids with her. Maybe it's only cause Sheldon doesn't care much for Howardette's kids?? Idk.
