    His clumsy jealously of Howard and Amy working together kills me.  He is so attached to her now, it's lovely how they have handled this.

    He's been jealous when it comes to Amy before... this moment is when I knew he loved Amy:

    I was born in 1961 and spent many hours watching television in the 'Golden Age'. Some of these shows were truly cutting edge and deserve to be remembered as classics. Those would be: All in the Family, Maude, Mary Tyler Moore Show, Bob Newhart Show, M*A*S*H, Carol Burnett Show, Dallas, Cheers, Cosby, Newhart, and some episodes of the others. Early seasons of The Waltons were truly great television. Later years were incredibly silly at times and about as classic as Charlie's Angels.

    Others were mostly light weight programming; Happy Days, Threes Company, Jeffersons, Good Times, Sanford and Son, Little House, Growing Pains, Family Ties, Magnum P.I. and many others such as The Dukes of Hazard, The A-Team, and so on.

    Looking back with a nostalgic eye is something we all like to do. But, as Billy Joel said, "The good old days weren't always good, and tomorrow's not as bad as it seems."

    TBBT would hold it's own in any era of television. It probably would not have been number one in a different era, but The Andy Griffith Show, The Beverly Hillbillies, and other classics wouldn't even get made today. For that matter, All in the Family would not get made today. Charlie's Angels wouldn't get made without putting bras on the women...

     

    A fellow Wolf lover who can quote Billy Joel?  YAY!!!

    I watched a few seasons of it. I liked it at the time (1970s). Had Little time for TV in the 80s. They have had it on ME TV on my cable recently. It was a product of its time and is completely out of place in today's culture. Doubt it could fly today and TBBT would not have been allowed in prime time then.

    I remember it, and I agree it wouldn't fly today.  However, the physical comedy of John Ritter (may he RIP) was on point.

    Two virgins having sex, doesn't have to equal creepy or awkward.

    I sooo agree with this.  Lost my v-card to another virgin, and I could identify with a lot of the feelings expressed by the apprehensive couple.  IMHO, the subject matter was well handled.

  5. 6/15/2018 is on a Friday.  If they want to get married on 6/15 that is a Saturday, they have to wait until 2019.  Don't see that happening.
    For purely selfish reasons, I would *love* for them to get married on 6/7, but it's on a Thursday in 2018 and Friday in 2019.  For 2018, the Saturdays in June are: 6/2, 6/9, 6/16, 6/23, and 6/30.

    The writers totally read fanfic. They stole my Amy goes to Stanford (except made it Princeton) storyline from Ten Dates and now they totally ripped off @hazelra7 and Six Sheldon's tonight. Yo writers, how about ripping off any number of the Shamy bedroom scenes? I'm sure CBS would jump at "Big Bang after Dark" over on Showtime! ;) 

    Especially @Stephen Hawking's stuff... :icon_redface:

    I think I know in my mind what sort of ending each character will have except for Raj. I'm beginning to think there is no happy ending for Raj, maybe that's the point they want to drive home? I think you saw the very worst of Raj last night, he has zero respect for women.

    Or someone he regards as a friend...

  8. I notice crazy things... I'm a middle school counselor, so it's an occupational hazard.  Has anyone else noticed the difference in Iain Armitage's teeth?  Look at his teeth in the pilot, as opposed to the interviews he did with Jim when it premiered.  Interested to see if they are going to address it.

    No I wouldn't assume that. Not all women who hit their early 30's suddenly want children, comes down to each individual.

    Some women (myself included) never feel the desire to have children.  I'm OK with my nieces, nephews, and students; I can send them home at the end of the day.

    Thank you so much for worrying Rick, and thank to all the people how wished us well. I just got back internet service, and was able to get back online today. Got back power a couple of days ago. In the area of Miami were I live we were basically pounded by wind and water all Sunday long (beginning late Saturday) but we are fortunately OK. In my case I just had tree damage and approximately 1/2 of my wood fence broke off , but didn't get any damage to the house itself. There is a canal behind my yard, and I was freaking out because the water level rose a lot and it was about 6 to 8 yards away from entering the house. Right when I was about to lose it, the rain started subsiding so all was well in the end.

    Again, thank you so much to all the people who wished us well.

    Rick: Sorry about the damage you suffered, but happy you're OK. Hope the insurance takes care of you quickly and efficiently. 

    Glad you're OK!

    Yes we have power.  We were right around that.  It was funny, in a way, we were a small enclave of non-power.  Two blocks west, had power.  Three blocks north and south had power.  10 blocks east, power.    

    Same here!  Trying to go out Monday night for some dinner was interesting.  It's not everyday you see lines around the block for Chick-Fil-A and Popeyes.  Couldn't even get a seat at my local sports bar, which usually is not busy.

    Final update, its over for us.  We are still without power, and we have some major damage to one of our rooms. The roof was partially ripped away, and the wind blew the rain in under the roof.  We had water running down our walls, pooling in the ceiling, and it has soaked the carpet in that room.  We're looking at having to replace the roof over that room, the ceiling, possibly the walls, and definitely the carpet.  It happens to be the room that houses my computer, my router, my PS4, and all my books.  Along with a TV and a few other things.  Already contacted my insurance company.  I'll probably be off and on here for a couple of weeks. So, if I don't answer right away, you know why. 

    Glad to know you're ok!

  13. I'm east of Tampa (grew up in Ruskin, where all the weather alerts come from) and according to the 5PM update, she's weakening and will probably only be a Cat 1 or 2 before she gets up here.    Hubby is delivering a load in Oklahoma tomorrow and then heads to Kansas, so I get to weather this in the walk-in closet all by myself.  This house has stood up to Charley, Frances, and Jeanne so hopefully I'll be OK.  Prayers for Tensor and Carlos (can't figure out how to tag).
    Seeing the Hillsborough River and Bayshore water levels so low was freaky, y'all

    If they can show Bernie's parents they can show Amy's. No excuses in my mind.

    Something I thought about a few days ago:  Bernie supposedly has all these siblings, and her parents live nearby.  How come we didn't see any of them come over to the house to help Bernie when she was stressing out right after she had Halley?  Will we see any of them now that she will have two in diapers?

    I agree with @Jonny  about another  pregnancy in show only in last season . Regards what audience thinks about another pregnancy , I think it is a risk to say they only care for Penny being pregnant. The tbbt audience is not only lenny shippers.

    Penny has to be pregnant in the last season in order to bring it full circle from the statement made in 1.1
