  1. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    I've always wondered whether actors feel differently about their characters in a long-running serial as opposed to the characters they play in a theatre every night for months, saying the same thing and knowing what's going to happen to them. I've always wanted to ask TV actors who also act on stage about that.

    I was a teenager when The Monkees were on British TV. I liked them. Their craziness appealed to our sense of humour. There were only two TV channels so we didn't get as many American shows as we do now. I've never heard of The Big Time Rush.

    I don't think Martin was offended. Getting married at the vet's I daresay was not the worst thing that had happened to him in his lifetime as a soldier and a police detective. I am sure vets have delivered babies before too, but perhaps not so often in a big city. The manure lorry no doubt ruined it for the guests who'd been looking forward to a meal and who'd suddenly lost their appetite.

    I didn't see that in Friends, but I wonder if it was as bad as when the manure lorry,Eddie the dog and Daphne's labour hijacked Martin's wedding on Frasier ?
  5. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    I'd like to know if they're going to go house hunting to find somewhere to live as a married couple. Also, since they've talked about children since they met, will they be discussing starting a family seriously ? Will they go to Oxford and Cambridge for the honeymoon ? I can see Sheldon being first afraid and then delighted at driving a barge along a canal. I can imagine they had intended to drop in on Prof Hawking but now will go to look for his memorial. How about York railway museum, and visits to volunteer projects where he can drive a train again ? Then perhaps they could visit Chatsworth where one of the Pride and Prejudice films was made. They could take a Bronte tour which Sheldon would enjoy more than he thought.
  6. [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    Perhaps someone who knows Hebrew will tell us if it has vowels. I'm like Mary : I only know what they teach in Church. I prefer my Old Testament in English, which of course limits it a bit. I learned about umlauts and other such German stuff from schoolbooks elsewhere but long enough ago to have forgotten. I've a feeling Hofstadter means coming from Hofstadt, which in turns means something like standing or being in a place. I wonder how many of Penny's children will be Doctor Hofstadter ?

    I thought Hebrew had no vowels anyway.

    The events concerning Lenny's wedding(s) were spread out over four episodes, but we didn't meet previously-unseen family members apart from Leonard's dad until the last of those. It really seemed rushed to me, getting the hangover from the cliffhanger plus the wedding and the new characters all into one episode. I'm amazed they did it as well as they did, all things considered. Now that we know none of Shamy's relatives are coming to the bachelor(ette) functions, it means if we're meeting '' new" ones it'll be at the wedding that we'll see them for the first time. That's at least three adults and a child on Sheldon's side alone. We know it's going to be a big wedding because Sheldon mentioned dancing and they're looking for venues that presumably can accommodate that. I would like to see it over two episodes rather than something crammed-in jammed-in.
  9. Chit Chat: Season 11

    Now I get it. I have met very few Irishmen in my life, one of whom was sober. He was a surgeon and on duty at the time.

    Any idea why it's St Patrick's Day of all the saints' days in the calendar ?
  11. Chit Chat: Season 11

    Is St Patrick the patron saint of the USA now ?

    What colour do you dye it on St David's Day ? Yellow ?

    I don't know.I only watched the original in which Alf Garnett went to the pub.I think it was called The King's Head but am ready to be corrected.

    I hope it's true. And won't he be surprised !
  15. I felt disappointed by the implication Leonard may drop the idea of writing his novel after speaking with his mother. It seems to have been one of those episodes for which they go to a lot of trouble to make and then either cut the scenes down to a few seconds such as the ones with the sloth, the railway engine, and the country dancing, or else never bring up the subject again such as the tenure applications or the guidance satellite.
