    Truth be told I think this would have been the perfect season to actually do it. Season 11 IMO should have been a season that is kind of an introspective for Raj that he makes changes and assesses himself. Then in Season 12 the newer Raj is unleashed and by Season end quite possibly Series end he's achieved it he's happy and perhaps about to start a new life with someone.

    That's what I would have done, but I am no writer.

    He got the planetarium and the haircut over a couple of episodes this season but that's about it, it's not enough IMO.

    Personally I think it would be (or would have been) a waste of screen time which could be better used to tie up some of the plot threads (tenure etc...) left dangling over the years as well as advancing lenny marriage and the other characters careers etc... in prep for the shows end

    Thanks for the support @Shelldon I agree he should run to India asap

    I used to feel like that too!

    but now last few seasons they’ve denigrated him so much I feel there’s no way back 😂Like at this point it feels kinda weird he can be successful at all... still happy for him though, go Stuart !

    There is a lot of truth to what you say but it would still be a lot easier to redeem Stuart than Raj. One season left is enough time to recover "old" Stuart he is still there underneath.

    Raj would have to be stripped down and completely rebuilt. And I still wouldn't believe it

  3. Stuart deserved a win he has been denigrated so much since the early years it would be good to see the guy who got 2 dates with Penny again.

    Raj has been an ass since s01e01 and has only gotten worse over the years hell he dosent deserve Cinnamon much less a girlfriend

    With the family sit-downs to watch “Life of Brian” I may have generated some heathens. The resurrecting Dr Who may have put the icing on that. :) 

    And we are  all very wary of women who float. They are everywhere.

    Lol the debates with my son over which is best Blazing Saddles vs Young Frankenstein or Holy Grail vs Life of Brian can go on for hours....

    And lead to the consumption of large quantities of beer :icon_cheesygrin:

    I understand that is what the TPTB say. Myself and many others see autism. I wish they would just give him the diagnosis. I suppose they don't so they don't have to be boxed in somehow. 

    Laughing at a "quirky" person is acceptable, laughing at a person with a disorder is not.

    If they diagnose him most of the jokes surrounding him now become off limits

    One of my problems with the show is that it promotes Shamy who both act without empathy and oft show little regard for human dignity (I haven’t forgotten the toilet scheduling of Leonard) - and who don’t get ethics clearance when they experiment on their lab-rat, and presumed, friends.  

    Also, I have the inkling (but not the sound argument at hand) that the sexual history jokes will be at sometime as archaic and unsettling as Amos & Andy and Benny Hill. It might take while, but there seems to be a vibe around the regard for women and their targeting for exploitation because of their sexual history or even just because they are women. Or maybe not. When we get ms joie in  friends re-imagined and she is cheered and loved by millions for her pantless exploits we will know.  What are the chances.

    With regard to the romance - they still have it - but it’s not for me. It’s fine enough, I guess, but they changed the product without changing the wrapping. Well done them for the cleverness of executing that. The science was a hook, device or gimmick, by the way (like the camisoles). Science was never popular broadly in the home market, so that dissipated. There are stats for that, despite the best work of Degrasse Tyson et al.

    Now it’s a tremendous and respectable vehicle for stunt casting. Which is nice. And useful.

    As usual a Concise, informative and entertaining post.

    It shows you don't have to try and sound like a fifteenth century english aristocrat to show intelligence

  7. Enough wedding talk for now let's ponder the important question...

    We know Penny is down with the green body paint we also know that Leonard has several star trek uniforms....

    The big question is how many costumes has Penny acquired over the years and what are they? :fi_lone_ranger:

  8. For some the thought that young, drunk, promiscues, half naked Penny is hanging out in a bar somewhere is like a unicorn.

    It may not be real but the fantasy itself provides some nebulous "comfort" and feeds the dream that someday you will see it

    Just a little reminder from S5/E1:

    R: Well, uh, as your friend, you might like to know that, um, we didn't have sex in the conventional sense.
    P: Oh, God. Did you pull some weird Indian crap on me?
    R: No, no. After we got undressed and jumped in bed, you-you asked if I had protection.
    P: Oh, you did, didn't you?
    R: Of course. I'm always packing. Anyway, um, I had trouble putting it on and you tried to help and that was all..
    P: So, we didn’t..?
    R: Actually I did. It was beautiful.
    P: Oh!
    R: Penny, please, please promise me you won't tell anybody about this.
    P: Of course I won't. No, I won't.
    R: Oh, good.

    Now I'm also done with this nonsense.

    I wouldn't bet on it we both know facts are irrelevant, to many Penny deserves whatever she gets (cause she's easy and dumb) and Raj is "really sweet"  (and a cutie) so his douchebag behavior is given a pass.

    Much like Sheldon many think Raj can do no wrong and some feel Penny can do no right and vice versa it's all about each person's bias which is why what actually was said or done ON SCREEN dossent matter or is intentionally mis-remebered

  10. OK I Just haven't read the thread yet but just watched it and to be honest Amy stole the show :icon_razz:

    I loved Lenny they were sweat and cute and fun, and Stuart was nice to see but Amy was laugh out loud funny the whole episode Mayim knocked this one out of the park.

    As for the Raj storyline....

    Were talking about being a third wheel in terms of dynamics. Leonard was a third wheel in one episode. Penny was most of S4. Please don't patronise me.

    I diddn't even think it was established what context you or anyone was refering too. Penny in one episode this season was a third wheel with Leonard and Amy. Sam diff. My point about S4. Was just pointing out. Leonard shouldent get sympathy. I am sorry if you disagree. Guess just hav to agree to diagree

    Translation: Penny is always in the right, even when she's not.

    Thy maybe her true friends. But Penny used to be so sociable and outgoing. Wish they maintained that part of her life.

    They don't have time now for all the characters to get decent stories why would you want to waste time on nameless extras????

    This isn't season 2 and it will never be season 2 again...
