  1. Of course! Costs a fortune, wands are around £40 from memory.
  2. Assuming you mean Harry Potter tours the main one is Leavesden, where they shot the films. But some props and costumes are part of the Warner Bros Studios Tours in LA including the Sorting Hat.
  3. A couple more random thoughts: 1) the cosplay as school kids: we have gone from 9.12/13 with Sheldon lying on his bed skyping Amy like an early teen to them dressed up as boarding school kids who often wear uniforms to 18. In my mind the HP kids are remembered at the point we left them, which is around 17/18, so Shamy may have grown through their 'adolescence' in the last year and can now legitimately move forward as 'young adults' if you like in terms of relationship development 2) The maturity with which they approach their second time along with the fun, carefree nature of it confirms their general intimacy, communication and comfort levels. They have learnt to compromise, tolerate and read each other as well as consider each other's need on a range of subjects including sex. Without the current story arc any long range arrangement to live together or marry would have seemed very OC but instead we have been shown that whatever comes next the ground work has been done. 3) I'll stick this here but I suppose it might be moved: Bernie's pregnancy. I think tptb must have taken a gamble here that they could get away with the inconsistency. Unusually I actually looked something up here. Rachel on Friends is the only similar storyline I could remember in this regard, the finale season 7 the matter comes up and they hint that the pregnancy test is hers. Finale season 8 she has the baby. Twelve months later! I can't remember being confused or surprised by this at all! I admit that there are no clear dates revealed in a way that tptb have shot themselves in the foot with this, but for the average viewer, who can't remember the details, they must think the timing Is close enough. It's a shame but after the initial surprise, I'm passed it already. So looking forward to the episode for the funny, kinky and general heat of passion of a fully fledged adult relationship . More so than last year which always needed to be just tender and sweet. The gifs are going to be awesome. Whoop whoop and happy dance.
  4. Do we think the scan is mapping love or lust?..... In this instance I'm leaning towards lust (or would either cover the same areas), I'm sure horniness must be subtly different from love?
  5. Been on the tour and that is what the tour guides say. #justiceforRavenclaw
  6. Ah, well it depends whether they were sorted at Warner Bros studios or not ( it's all a bit meta) but as the HP films never sort anyone into Ravenclaw they don't have John Hurt Audio for sorting anyone else into Ravenclaw so no one ( on the tour, or I assume at the theme park) is ever sorted into that house. If Sheldon just picked a house then I grant you it could be any of them.
  7. Thank you @ShamyBabboos @mirs1and @Maddie for the spoilers. Really appreciate the effort. So my wish for highly creative writing seems to be working so much so that we have the longest pregnancy ever*. However on the upside what a fabulous coitus 2.0 storyline! With all the build up to this and Sheldon's 'seduction for procreation' episode perhaps leaving the subject be for a few weeks created some perspective for Shamy and of course the deal about sex on her birthday always stood so at least Sheldon would be sure Amy would be up for that! Let's hope this is a jumping off point for them now and as there is no repeat of that 'until your next birthday' line (hopefully) we can hope for more frequent episodes of Shamy sex (even if it's off screen which may be needed!!!Lol!) I always thought Sheldon would be a creative lover if he could just get going on that front, so I'm delighted to see all that start to play out... BTW I think Sheldon is Gryffindor and Amy must be Hufflepuff as Sheldon in Earworm made some reference to Leonard being in Hufflepuff and I'm sure they will have all been 'sorted'. (There's no way Sheldon would tolerate being in Slytherin surely.) Jim appears to be ticking off his wish list which is cool. * btw a local - to me - OBGYN doesn't believe in inducing overdue expectant mothers so some do go to 4 weeks overdue but even that can't get us to 17th Dec from early to mid Jan! But I'm going to overlook that in the circumstances
  8. Random thoughts I have had around these issues recently: 1) as it's not their first time we may end up 'hearing' about some sort of restart on their sex life in retrospect. As I have said before in the shipping lanes thread or may DT I want my TBBT stories to be so much more imaginative than plodding through a tick list and something I wouldn't necessarily guess. Generally this is what is delivered by the writers so I can envisage the subject of coitus 2.0 is resolved for us the viewers as say a cold open in 10.12 with Shamy post-coital in 4B in the New Year and the conversation clearly indicates they have been at it like rabbits for a little while. The story of what happened to get coitus back on the table emerges in dribs and drabs over the rest of the season. 2) Engagement: as Shamy are such a quirky pair and have ignored presumably both sets of parents and their opinions on the subject of sex, living together and possibly whether or not to be together I am starting to wonder if they will forego the traditional engagement, wedding set up to some degree. Again I said in the DT recently that Howardette seem to have the traditional life plan story, engagement, white wedding, live together, have a baby and Lenny and Shamy are moving a long on different pathways to reach their happy ever after. Of course this keeps thing fresh and interesting from a creative writing point of view and consequently is and should keep us guessing about how it is all going to play out. Despite the fun speculating we rarely guess the plots! Lol! Even this latest TR (thanks @skylex) doesn't play out quite how we imagined, with Shelnard going off down a tangent with the apartment flag/genital rubbing gag. Btw @Jonny I agree what is it with rubbing genitals on stuff? And very little stuff actually being moved. 3) this season's nostalgic notes are starting to feel like 'TBBT greatest hits with growth'. I can't help feeling we are in the final season or Season 11 will take a very different turn (which is possible if 'Sheldon' takes off).
  9. Or horror of horrors, there's no sign of coitus in 10.11. 10.12 catches up to real time so New Year and the episode starts with Shamy post-coital and we never know.....
  10. What's very exciting is that this could well be THE episode ( from what we can gleam) where Sheldon's decision on LA's is confirmed. The stuff is being sorted out and regardless of the arguments surrounding who owns what Sheldon has clearly decided to live permenantly with Amy. I know we Shamys got all that from the hallway scene, but for the confused there is now no doubt. This also clears the way for the arrival of Howardette's baby in 10.11 as I'm guessing tptb won't want to tackle that with all this going on so I don't imagine that is occurring as a side show. I'm liking the idea of Shelnard/Pamy or PALS based stories here too. Finally when you look back at how far Sheldon in particular has come, comparing him with say season 2, (caught a couple of episodes of that earlier this week) tptb definitely need to deal with all this over time as it really is seismic, the shift that is occurring. I hope they don't alter the living room in 4A too much in the quake as it'll be too much to cope with! Lol!
  11. Heavens I go out to walk the dog as there's nothing spoilerish at 7am and get back to all this angst! Still time for some info.... And thanks again to all those that supply it. (I would have been happy to help but when I was in L.A. In the summer I was five days too early for a taping, bit of a bummer). Has anyone noticed that the title of an episode is often (but not always) related to the B plot or less so at this point who knows what might be going on..... ( last week it was the A plot admittedly, but take the Fish guts displacement as an eg. )
  12. This issue of screen time and salary is a weird one. Of course it's impossible to know how J/K feel about their story lines in the context of their salaries. I think in the circumstances they are smart to act together (no-one wants to see one of them go). I imagine it's a major factor though in their negotiations if it is an issue, so should there be a season 11 then a deal is likely to have been struck which J/K are happy with in every respect, consequently whatever screen time/story lines they have next season do stand a chance of being by mutual consent between them and tptb.
  13. As Howardette are more 'minor characters' than the big three the wedding plot covered the basics but the actual wedding was scrapped in favour of a scratch nerdy style affair in the end, pretty small scale. This premis is possibly also being used for the baby story so they can get all their standard baby gags out the way with minor characters in the frame. Presumably it's part of Howard's story arc that he has been converted from the sleazeball into a regular, in his case, hen-pecked guy. Not what you want for the leads. I think Leonard and Sheldon's life events if they need to come up at all should be dealt with differently and uniquely and so far that's what has played out.
  14. Working up from the end: FWF falls under the heading 'running gag', and I said tptb don't seem to repeat 'major story lines' not one episode sagas/issues such as jealousy. Weddings are never dealt with very thoroughly on the show so why any different for Shamy if that's what it comes to I'm hoping going forward the writing gives us twists and surprises so that the tick lists of 'things to get through: weddings, babies, who lives where' is not the be all and end all. I want a quirky show where my fabulous nerdy characters and their friends make it through their lives in brilliant, imaginative and inventive ways that I can't imagine whatever the 'end game' needs to be, that's the show I tune in to watch. And we do know Lenny's babies will be smart and beautiful whenever they arrive......
  15. Please ignore the quote (no idea what happened there. Sorry @heres2U.) @a.ayres pic on Instagram this week showing the writers white board got me thinking about strategy for the storylines overall So a couple of points combining this thought with recent posts here: Leonard has already achieved his pilot goal. He has married Penny and they have declared their intentions around the subjects of kids. Shamy may not marry (after all they are a quirky unconventional couple), the living together adjustment is going on now instead. Given the time devoted to Howardette's wedding plans I don't think we will see all that written again for Shamy even if they do decide to marry let's say by the end of the show, and it wasn't shown for Lenny again possibly due to writing repetition so was sideswiped with Penny's 'I want to prove I'm not pregnant, brothers schedule' comments Lenny's adjusting to living together post marriage was not covered because TPTB wanted to cover this type of story with Shamy at some point, however Lenny getting Sheldon out of their apartment is their post wedding adjustment issue. Again telling a different story. I suspect after a spell of fluff for Lenny (happily married, no strife) which we are in now they will get meatier story lines but this will lead to some angst (Penny's career maybe) before settling down again probably at the end of the show whenever that is. (Their strife was achieving an agreement to marry a couple of seasons ago) So my guess is to keep the writing fresh and surprising they try hard not to repeat major storylines which has left Lenny's wanting for their ship but might spare Lenny's too much Shamy going forward NB. Raj's trouble with girls is also a long long storyline as he works his way through various types of relationship having first shaken off the selective mutism. (I wouldn't mind betting the problems with Emily at the end were beyond the shows control with Laura's availability. Also Raj was being a complete dick about Emily and Claire and so a very unceremonious dumping by both really was on the cards)
