    Actually, if we are going to toss around the word legendary, I think Mayim fits that better than Jim.  As you said, she was the main/title character in a sitcom, starred in another very short-lived comedy (sorry, I can't remember the name) and had a central role in a notable movie (Beaches).  Raj even mentioned her on an early episode of TBBT (was it the Physics Bowl episode???) years before Amy made her first appearance. 

    Both Blossom and Beaches are kinda cult classics in the respective demographics so that's definitely score for Mayim!

    Seriously, I write a post about hate speech and your comment is hate speech.  I’m done, moderator either please delete this post subject and series or tell me how to do it.

    Just because you don't like an opinion doesn't make it "hate speech".

    I understand that, my problem is that this has been going on for a long time with him and since he is supporting the general feelings of the Hollywood elite he is allowed to continue with his actions.  This is just my personal opinion but this last vanity card hit my limit with him.

    By framing this as "the feelings of the Hollywood elite" you're deluding yourself that everybody else is thinking differently but really at least half of your country and probably most of the rest of the world shares those feelings. Sarah Sanders is a despicable person and so is her boss so I can't feel sorry for her here.

     I refuse to recognize him as a good person, no matter how many awards he receives.

    What do awards have to do with anything??? Like, if you think awards are only given to "good" people, boy, do I have news for you!

    I saw the vanity card but I didn't even know the woman was real until I read this thread. I gather Chuck Lorre's was making personal remarks about a woman politician ? Didn't Roseanne Barr get her series cancelled for doing that ? Will the next eight episodes of TBBT still get made ? Does this mean Young Sheldon will be cancelled since the vanity card was on there too ?

    What? No, don't worry. Lorre has used his vanity cards to express his political views (or whatever else was on his mind in any given week) for ages and occasionally he's getting snarky. No big deal, from what I can tell. Here's an online archive with all of them:


    Roseanne was fired because she was spewing racist nonsense on twitter which was not a good look for ABC (bad publicity and all that). So different situation.

    I agree, that he uses her looks to express his political hate only makes it more wrong.  Why I’m posting this is because on this forum we try to keep personnel attacks and hate off the forum because we all strive to be decent fans here.  Therefore, I cannot support a cast or crew member who repeatedly uses TBBT to express his political hate speech.


    His vanity card is a reaction to Sanders repeatedly brining up "God" and how the mess you currently have over there is "His will" and all that nonsense. So the card is just Lorre saying that is bullshit.

    Hating on a woman (or even a man ) because of his/her looks is what is obviously wrong and should be condemned. Well done SRAm.

    Gonna go out on a limb here and say he doesn't hate her for her looks.

    Who says you are going to see them getting there? All we as viewers know is they have kids at some point in the future. To me this does not mean within the next weeks. I think that will not be seen. I hope it won't be seen.

    Well, as we know a pregnancy in TBBT land lasts up to almost a year (lol) so unless Shamy develop a "Instant Babies - just add water!!" formula there won't be any Shamy babies any time soon. Even Shamy trying to get pregnant could take a while - the episode they film now could just be the first step and then they find out Amy is pregnant in the last few episodes or whatever. But I'm a bit out of touch with the writing this season so what do I know.

    I'm still holding out that the Nobel plot doesn't work out.

    I'm a bit torn on that cause "Sorry, you lost the Nobel, here have a baby instead!" feels like a weird consolation prize here.

    Why is this surprising anyone? They said on Young Sheldon that Sheldon has kids and they said on TBBT that Penny doesn't want kids. She could change her mind of course, and they could both be pregnant in the finale but I'm just not getting that vibe. Since they said these things point blank I'm just not feeling it.  No one can say they weren't warned about this. I'm glad because it probably means I won't have to watch any more boring pregnancy storylines.

    TBQH with YS already saying they'll have kids and the ongoing Nobel plot I kinda expected that they'd leave the Shamy babies for some vague time after the show. I'm not even mad at the prospect as such - the wording of the spoiler blip is bothering me more than anything. (Though that is probably just a flawed write up with a poor choice of words.)

    I actually take this as a positive. I undetstand this sound warped but let me explain. In theory this keeps the pregnancy discussion going on. I find it hard to believe Lenny is not going to be involved in this Shamy discussion. I also never bought that Penny job as Pharmacy rep is going to last till May. JMO I think that is the ultimate reason Penny doesn’t want kids. I’m not saying it’s the only factor but the biggest factor.

    Well, Penny will be away from the discussion as she has her own plot with Bernadette so that doesn't really work out. I'd also hate it if somehow her job falls through and then she wants a baby cause... she has nothing else to do???

    See, your last paragraoh is why I feel "manipulation" is too strong for this. Sure it says so in the title by this can be from a Sheldon-centric view, and besides, the titles are don't always fit the episode so well since they're mostly trying to make them "sciency". By Amy's expectations I mean she expected that he won't ignore her and won't complain all night and perhaps thank her and compliment her on her choice of activity. Most people would meet those expectations but Sheldon needed an extra help there to understand what is expected and what is inappropriate in that context. 


    Well, that's a bit "potato - potahto" for me. I don't necessarily think of "manipulation" of a strong word per se cause it really depends on the context and manipulations can come in many forms and different levels of severity. This one is pretty harmless, all things considered so I wouldn't want to imply anything particularly terrible here.

    I wouldn't say "manipulated". She wanted to make him more comfortable when going with her on a supposedly romantic evening, a sort of a compromise. It wasn't meant to be an activity made just for Sheldon. Sheldon apparently did not get that nuance and did not think he had to act in a way that will satisfy Amy, and so when he realized she had certain expectations he accused her of trying to trick him. 

    I mean, the word "Manipulation" is literally in the title so...

    Aha ! I didn't see that. Now it makes sense. Thank you. ! I get it at last. I didn't see the trick behind  Amy's arrangements. Sheldon realised he'd been  manipulated  - but I didn't - when she was complaining. No wonder he was annoyed.

    Yeah, the idea was that he would love the train trip so much he'd shower her with love in return or something. Heck, Amy probably would have been fine with everything if it weren't for Eric and Sheldon subsequently completely ignoring her.

    Bold:  I see. Thanks. I've not yet seen that one with audio description.Was that supposed to be the first time he'd ever kissed her, or just the first time he'd done so and  liked it ?

    The first time he kissed her. Amy has kissed him before and while I think he didn't hate it ("Fascinating.") it was still early so I think this one really stirred a feeling in him.

    Italics : I don't get why she was complaining. She'd arranged everything so he'd be comfortable with the trip but hadn't said she wanted romance. Also, he sounded angry when he said she'd misled him by promising something they'd both enjoy. Why did he say that, considering he was thoroughly enjoying himself ?

    But that was the point: He was enjoying himself and Amy was complaining, hence why he called her out. If Amy wanted romance she should have said so and not try to trick him with a trip that she thought would suddenly turn him into some sort of train-Casanova. The two characters want different things and that's the conflict of the story - it gets resolved with the kiss and they both get what they wanted.
