  1. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Ah, I really didn't want to weigh in on this topic, but it's Sunday night, and I'm bored, so what the hell. When I started watching this show, I loved the relationship between Sheldon and Penny, it was funny and interesting, and these two made me laugh out loud all the time. I kept wondering why the writers still hadn't made them a canon couple, because I could see the chemistry and the popularity. The way I saw it, there were a few opportunities they could make this happen logically, like after Leonard and Penny broke up in S.3, or, before Sheldon and Amy became a couple in S.5, or after that drama episode - 824, but...they didn't. They brought Amy in as Sheldon's love interest in 323, they made Sheldon and Amy a couple, and yeah, even though Shamy broke up, but Lenny still got married in 901, and then Shamy got back together in 910. So I thought, yeah, it seemed like they still wanted Lenny and Shamy being the endgame. But, in the meantime, they occasionally provided some fan services - "over the line" fan services. 1. Amy, told us her fantasy about Sheldon being indiffefent that a half naked Penny hit on him. 2. Penny, being Leonard's fiance, Sheldon, being Amy's boyfriend, they went to a room and did the love test to see whether or not they could fall in love with each other. 3. Leonard, had a nightmare, that in order to save his marriage, Sheldon, his best friend, just grabbed Leonard's wife Penny and kissed her hard, and then, she kissed him back, which shocked Leonard to wake up. Oh, these were just the plots, the clever points were: 1. It was Amy's fantasy, not Sheldon and Penny's fault, so if you didn't like it, you should blame Amy. 2. Leonard and Amy also did that love test, and, Sheldon and Penny didn't fall in love with each other, they just had a beautiful and special bond, so if you didn't like it, nobody could help you. 3. See point one, just replace "Amy" with "Leonard". Yeah, you writers were so clever!!! Bravo!!! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- My point is, I can accept Sheldon and Penny being a canon couple, I even can ship them!!! But, I really detest these "over the line fan services". If Sheldon and Penny both are single, the writers can make them kiss, they can become a couple, fair and square. And they can use these "half naked Penny", "love test", "hot kiss" plots all they want. Sigh, and now, the sad thing is, they changed Sheldon and Penny's relationship, they claimed these two have some special bond, they made her his nanny, yet, to me, what they had, from S.1 to S.6, was the real special bond.
  2. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    I really loved this episode, I laughed through out the whole episode. Every character is IC and at least has one line that made me laugh out loud, it was really great. This episode showed me that Shamy's interaction was really sweet and natural these days, and I even laughed at Amy's "WTF" face in that "cold feet" scene. I understand your apprehension, but let me share something with you. I've been a little worried about the whole "Penny's true feelings about Amy could be negative" thing, but it turned out to be my favorite Pamy episode. So I'm gonna remember this lesson, not to over think that "kick out" thing, just wait and watch the episode. ---------------------------------------------------------- Oh, and a bit of advice to all of us: NEVER read the social media's comments BEFORE you watch the episode, some unnecessary negative ones really can take the fun out of the show.
  3. Howardette Season 11 (Spoilers)

    Howard speaking mandarin this episode really made me laugh out loud. And, this time, I could (sort of) understand what he was saying before I read the subtitles, hahaha. Oh, and Bernie's "Amazon shipping sewing kit" was so IC, and "you could've done that yourselves", I can totally hear her voice in my head!!! It seems that these two's LOL scenes and golden lines continues, I love it.
  4. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    Merry Christmas, my dear friends, it's half past two in the afternoon on Christmas Eve here, my friends and I are shopping for presents, haha. I wish you all have a wonderful holidays with your family and your friends!!! Oh, and happy holidays to Shamy, love you two!!!
  5. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    This is so true. There were a few Leonard & Amy's plots, but Sheldon and Bernie's plots? What? Three times? And Penny & Howard's plots? IIRC, the last time they talked alone was that bachelor party episode, in S. 5. Sheldon rarely interacts with Bernie, Leonard rarely interacts with Amy or Bernie, Howard rarely interacts with Penny or Amy, and Raj...considering he often joins the girls' night, so, I don't count him in. This show has 7 main characters, 4 guys and 3 girls, but they failed to mix up the pairings more often to shake up things, that's a shame. JMO.

    I agree, I hope we could actually see them doing those experiments at their labs, instead of just them talking, at the kitchen island of 4A.
  7. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    Ahh, I forgot they showed the painting in 1024!!! Haha, now, I'm happy it's in Shamy's apartment. Whether the couch is ugly or not, we can't all agree on that part, but I don't think when you lean against it, you would be comfortable. So, to me, it doesn't worth the name - couch. JMO, of course.
  8. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    I remembered that I laughed at what Sheldon said about the couch: "You know, I have always thought that this couch would look fantastic on the curb in front of the building." They should keep the painting instead of the couch.
  9. Mayim Bialik

    I really love reading the BTS and the recap articles from Mayim, which made me enjoy the episodes much more, as a fan of the show and Shamy, I really appreciate her efforts. Now whenever we get some nice episodes about Shamy, I'm looking forward to reading her feelings.
  10. Howardette Season 11 (Spoilers)

    I've been OK with not seeing Halley until 1111, I don't like the crying sound, but I like it being a homage to Mrs. Wolowitz. But after I watched 1111, I thought it was really weird not seeing the actual birthday girl at her birthday party, and now, we have baby No.2 on the way... I'm looking forward to seeing how the writers are gonna handle this situation.
  11. Howardette Season 11 (Spoilers)

    I've noticed something interesting. When the show first decided to add a baby to the storyline, I've seen countless comments on social media saying "No, we don't need babies...They will ruin the show!!!" etc, etc... Now, when we are about to have TWO babies in the show, especially after 1111 aired, lots of people were saying: "Why have we still not seen Halley?" "We need to see Halley, instead of hearing the awful crying sound!!!" "Maybe when her brother is born, we get to see them both!" etc, etc... Of course, there are still many people who don't like the baby plot, but it's interesting to see the opposite opinion. Due to Melissa's real pregnancy, we haven't seen many Howardette plots, but I enjoyed their storylines, except for when the writers took Bernadette's "evil side" overboard that episode... I hope in the second half of Season 11, we get to see more of their storylines, involving work, juggling work and parenting, etc, etc... And, of course, something from my bucket list of the show: Meeting Howard's Dad. Come on, writers, please make it happen!!!
  12. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    HAHAHA, saved it. Thank you, the King of GIF!!!
  13. [Spoilers] Raj: Season 11

    I kinda hoped we could see more...not the fight, but the storyline. But on second thought, I'm not trusting the writers for a serious issue about Raj. So, I guess maybe this was just a mini story before the winter hiatus. I LOLed at their jumping scene, they were both very flexible.
  14. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    Yes, I knew you guys would understand!!! Regarding this issue, I've read a lot of long analyzing posts, I've had lots of discussions with my friend, and we both kinda gave up hope on this. Like you said, it's inevitable, like lots of jokes in this show, if you can't change anything, what else can you do? Just let it go, it's good for your health and sanity. And, I admit since Season 10, the Shamy plots have been keeping me happy, compare now to pre-824, I'm really counting my blessings. So I refuse to let this issue destroy my Shamy happiness, because this is really the writers' crazy obsession, not Shamy's, so, I'm just gonna let it slide.
  15. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    I just watched this episode, it was so funny!!! The food poisoning plot, seeing them lying on bed, "half dead", I'm sorry but I really laughed so hard...It's so nice to see Shamy's fun side!!! I love Amy's excitement and Sheldon's smile all through the episode. Amy wearing Sheldon's pajama pants was a really nice scene, I never expected it, so I was really happy to see it. It was the come hither one, right? Their final scene, their jumping together reminded me that scene when Howard and Amy went to karaoke, I love this!!! I just had one know which one...I really don't think it was necessary to stress it considering 1023...but...guess the writers really love this...sigh. Yes, and Amy rarely wears pants, so I guess even the casual audience would noticed this nice little detail. LOVE IT.
