  1. I've been watching it every day on youtube but this week there's a man doing it instead. Where did Mayim go ?
  2. I enjoyed this episode. It had many funny moments. I like the new youth pastor. It seems to me Missy and Sheldon are too old to be made to go to Sunday School against their will. However, I think now they've been to one of the new more age-appropriate classes they won't need forcing or persuading again. I'm wondering now whether the script writers want us to wonder whether it was ever true that George was an unfaithful husband or whether it was all unjustified suspicion.
  3. We don't get the comedies you mentioned as far as I know. The modern meaning of 'comedy' is that something is funny. In the older meaning it's that the stage isn't littered with bodies at the end of the play. I think YS is usually very well done. I hardly ever find anything to laugh at apart from the teachers and the reverend. TBBT could be very serious at times, especially as the characters grew older and matured. Over the years I thought most episodes were well done too,even the ones with no funny lines or incidents.
  4. Sorry to hear this. Thank you for letting us know what the forum meant to him. Condolences to all his loved ones.
  5. I do love these 'backward shadows' narrated by adult Sheldon. I also love the hints about the future after the ending of TBBT.
  6. I thought so. Unlike TBBT, the YS scriptwriters generally have good memories. The impression coming over was that Dr Linkletter was encountering Sheldon for the first time, which viewers know wasn't correct.
  7. With two of the cast playing children in the family two years younger, as they mature will the series have to end or will they skip ahead in the story and make Iain look older ?
  8. I've just watched it and it looks to me as if he's not forking up his 'food because he's speaking. There are several eating scenes and he varies the gestures. I think if he'd got Parkisons or something we'd have heard by now.
  9. i know quite a few families who ae from the Punjab. Muslim siblings want their children to marry in order to keep property in the family. Children from this community feature above average, numerically speaking, in special schools. Sikhs, however, go to great lengths to ensure potential brides and grooms are not in any way related. They tell me that in their home villages in India they have scholars who study family trees many generations back to verify lack of consanguinity.
  10. If the infidelity really happened and it wasn't just one of Sheldo's stories, I suppose we'll eventually find out,that's if the series goes on for long enough.
  11. It's not all that rare in many cultures for even first cousins to marry each other. Many muslim families encourage it. It's not illegal. It's not incestuous although the idea would make some of us shudder. That shudder factor is why they pull Howard's leg about it. In today's busy,industrialised world it's possible for second cousins to meet and only find out about the relationship later.
  12. Something confused me. Didn't Dr Linkleter already know Sheldon ?
  13. He also used the term 'intercourse tonight' when Amy was out on a date with Stuart. On his honeymoon I seem to recall he once mentioned 'making love' or 'lovemaking'.
  14. That would have been useful for Amy to know.
  15. We don't do those on holy days. King Wenceslas would not be good about that sort of thing.
  16. No ! When the fire is lit your parents leave the back door unlocked so Santa can get into the house safely. They leave mince pies and a glass of port and a glass of sherry on the table in the kitchen. Everybody knows this.
  17. Yes and at the universty Leonard would see her at work, not work with her.
  18. If all the YS viewers knew about Amy, that would indeed have been better. In this forum we know Amy and her personality and her suitability or not as a wife for Sheldon. All YS-ers know, unless they are/were TBBT viewers, so long as they happened to catch the part of adult Sheldon's narration in the episode where it was mentioned along with the name of a son, is Amy's name. He usually just says 'my wife' or 'my children' if he mentions them at all. We've heard future ( to both series ) adult Amy's voice only once. Mayam was working in the vicinity when they were finishing off a previously Covid-interrupted YSepisode,so they took advantage of her availability. I think we may well need a crossover thread someday. The writers drop information in YS on purpose IMHO, just as they did in TBBT to link us up with Sheldon's past. YS-ers know what the other six children were doing around the time the 1990 Nobel winners were announced. We've seen Sheldon in the Caltech canteen circa 1991. A backward shadow. Although some TBBT fans might prefer to imagine for themselves our beloved gang's future, I'd love to hear more gems dropped about them, We know how many children Missy eventually had, and how long Mary had been working for the Church. It's interesting that the impression given in TBBT of a 'dumbass daddy' wasn't entirely realistic - he was a teacher, at least until 1991. We don't know how old Sheldon is when he's narrating.
  19. Fair enough. I thought as there was a post in the TBBT forum about Paige's being better suited to adult Sheldon than Amy, it should be answered. I think Amy is the best possible match for Sheldon. Actually, I think they were all well-matched in the end. Considering the men came from broken marriages and the women didn't,it would be interesting to know how the writers' minds were working regarding that.
  20. Not every TBBT fan is, but Sheldon talks a lot about his childhood and some non-YS viewers of TBBT might find the odd bit of information here and there useful.
  21. And he was also a notary public.
  22. The family came from another town. They wanted to make more money so they could send Paige to a school for clever children. Her father was a dentist. Sheldon and Paige were ten. Sheldon's parents couldn't afford that sort of schooil but he got a scholarship to one far away. He didn't like the digs so he went to the local high school where his father taught football. Mary needed parents of a gifted child to talk to, which was how they all met. Paige and Sheldon both attend a physics class at a university.Sheldon will go there full time in September. He sees her more of a rival than a friend. Missy gets on well with her. George isn't philandering yet. Paige's parents have split up so who knows what's coming. Sheldon in TBBT never said when his father went off the rails. George already likes his beer.
