  1. For the record, this is what I meant too. I did not even remotely think she would be attracted to Zack NOW. That would be horrible.
  2. I am intrigued by the idea that Zack may cause a bit of trouble for both Shamy and Lenny. I REALLY like the suggestion that he could inspire jealousy in Sheldon, resulting in him...ahem...decidedly marking his territory (for lack of a better phrase). Of course I know Amy is not his "possession" or anything. But I do LOVE Jelly Shelly, so I'm rooting for that kind of plot.
  3. I agree with this and with karyshamy above. I'm glad someone said this because I've been thinking it for weeks. This has been a relaxing and happy place for me in the past, and I feel like a lot of the recent criticism of the show/writing is so at odds with my own view that I've felt kind of out of place. Maybe others who feel more positive about stuff have been keeping quiet as well. I certainly know it hasn't all be negative and I'm not saying I don't appreciate a good debate. Everyone is entitled to their opinions. I am a long time viewer/Shamy fan and long time lurker on the forum before I joined, and I don't know...I'm just not upset by what's going on right now with Shamy and with the show in general. I know the silly inconsistencies bother a lot of us, and I mostly find them mildly annoying. But these character development questions I consider a little differently. I love my husband more than anyone and sometimes I'm sweet and patient to him and sometimes I can be really cranky to him, depending on mood, outside stressors, etc. this seems real to me, not weird. We love each other unconditionally and I know it's a safe place to have a bad day. I don't see anything from Amy/Sheldon (or Penny/Leonard either for that matter) that calls their whole characterization into question. I guess what I mean by this is that it doesn't seem weird for me that Amy might be manipulative one minute and not the next, or that she might get sick of the RA meetings, or that she might flee Sheldon when he's being a jerk. I also don't think it's weird that he be somewhat rigid in his behavior post-coitus. I choose to believe that he's suppressing or repressing how much it affected him and I fully expect that to bubble over at some point. I also appreciate that they are moving toward a dust up about Sheldon/Penny's stunted growth into real adulthood. I don't think the writers are just telling us that Shamy are happy, or stronger than ever, or moving forward. I think they're showing it. Both have loosened up with each other considerably, they have casual touching, sweet words to each other, both are being gentler and more flexible than they were before the breakup. AND it seems there is also a build up of sexual tension. This is all good for me. I still enjoy the show. Still laugh out loud. Still love the characters. And I think the stories are still true to the roots of show (with lots of growth, because ummmmm that's what real people do).
  4. Did you see this? What could the surprise be? (Also posted to Discussion thread.)
  5. Did anyone else see this? Wonder what their surprise is!
  6. I can't help but think (hope?) they're beating us over the head with Sheldon's spot (first in the Meemaw ep and now in tonight's) because it's going to play a part in something "big" that's coming. Proposal? More coitus? Not sure. I feel like either he'll ask her to sit there, tell her that she's his spot, or...not sure. I think these reminders that she's not good enough for that spot or that he's not going to share it must foreshadow that changing (as Kathy stated above). A girl can dream anyway! I liked tonight's ep a lot. I laughed out loud several times. I wish Amy had more to say, but mostly I thought it was really fun!
  7. So, FYI, the way to get over your Shamy obsession with no new taping reports and no new ep for a few days is definitely not watching this video on repeat and reading the loooooong "Concession" fanfic (by MindOutOfMine) in like a day and a half. Just sayin'. (video source: Miss Huntress)
  8. I had the exact same thought! And I loved it!
  9. Grrr that's what I was trying to do but it wasn't posting! I just do not get the hostility.
  10. Yes! Nailed it. source: http://ms-opinion.tumblr.com/post/108700660339/i-know-because-i-won-both-of-them
  11. Someone (sorry can't remember who!) on the DT made me feel much better with the thought that maybe this whole dynamic of Leonard/Amy "arguing" over who is closer to Sheldon and Penny taking on the role of no-nonsense sibling cheerer-upper actually does speak to larger character growth and things to come. And that perhaps, this might be the beginning of Leonard saying goodbye to Sheldon as a roommate and "handing the reins" or whatever over to Amy as his closest "person". And then, as a continuation of the rest of the ep's plotline, that Penny- in saying she identifies with Missy's part in his childhood heartache and then saying sweet things to make him feel better - sort of takes on the role of his surrogate sister in healing that past trauma. Thematically this works for me and emotionally it also made me feel A LOT better about it. So...I'm going with it! Check out the original argument/spin on this in the DT. I thought it was very well argued!
  12. Really well said (bold part) and I totally agree. I have loved past episodes where Sheldon is the "straight man" to Amy's (for lack of a better word) wacko (i.e. talking about her dead cousin's bridesmaids dresses, Amy drunk in the parking lot, when she's using science to increase his affection, and yes, even in the coitus ep where she's trying to seduce him on the couch). I would love if we get to see Amy acting excited/manic/awkward and Sheldon being the one to help teach her a lesson about whatever it is. That would remediate both the annoyed-woman-rolling-her-eyes-at-her-manchild-lover trope AND show personal growth for both characters. Let Sheldon play the mature savior for once, please. I would LOVE that.
