  1. Jim Parsons

    He talked about his marriage. He described what he felt when he closed his eyes, during the early days of his relationship and that he still feels the same after all these years, how it makes their love eternal. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  2. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    If u ask me ...no reason to watch imo After that clip , 11.01 shamy plot is so boring. It is basically same old lazy sitcom 101 trope of "wise patient woman putting up with her annoying foolish childish man, yet for some inexplicable reason, she is dying to marry him" On the bright side , pictures of episode 11.02 look pretty cool . That picture with just Penny and the guys and the pic of Sheldon surrounded by all those whiteboards reminds me of old school tbbt.....thinking of physics bowl and Penny blossoms. The Leonard/Penny pictures look great too. Im curious about Leonard's outlook to physics and why he said what he said, and what the guys and Penny are discussing. Idk, atleast on paper it sounds like a different type of plot ..lets see how it plays out.

    Haha. Couldnt agree more. Sheldon seems to be "evolving" backwards...into a toddler. Sheldon's career is a total bust and there is nothing going on in his professional life. He used to be so big into numbers and solving the mysteries of the universe and obsessed with his whiteboard , now he is dumbed down , needy and jealous. I guess the psychic was WRONG: "committing to amy" did nothing for his research or inspiration or career. They have already have child/dog sheldon jokes in the season 10 finale, combined with him squealing over "play date " with Ramona, being given a time out by Amy, being infantalized by distracting him with trains, climbing into bed with Lenny because apparently he is scared of thunderstorms, .....and what not....he will successfully turn into a toddler by the end of the series. Its only fitting that they turn him onto the same mental level as Bernadette's unborn child and Lenny parent him. Imo they are ruining the last bits left of a once beloved award winning character.

    If Sheldon reacted to everything normally, plenty of TBBT plots wouldn't be there. The major portions of plots of Indecision Amalgamation(PS vs xbox), Bath Item Gift Hypothesis, Adhesive Duck Deficiency, Panty Pinata Polarization, Pants Alternative, Einstein Approximation (and the ball pit scene) , Agreement Dissection or…countless other popular TBBT episodes wouldn’t even exist. One one hand, you are criticizing Sheldon for running away and not having a reasonable reaction to the situation. On the other hand, You said it yourself, his antics don't HAVE to be normal and are just meant for exaggerated comedy. It is a sitcom, not real life, so I personally don't see the point in complaining that he isn't suddenly and magically acting like a normal person in the first place.

    I am just listing all the episodes /examples where Lenny had some kind of conflict(although our personal interpretation may vary) . Whether it was pointlessly OOC or not (I thought Penny decorating the room with all shades of pink was a bit OOC) , it doesn't change that Sheldon was not really causing any of those , especially not in the season 10 examples I gave. So I kinda disagree with this claim that he is 24x7 causing issues with Lenny. especially since he moved out to 4B with Amy.

    Instead of blaming Sheldon all the time, IMO, it is worth looking at how Leonard and Penny themselves create trouble in their relationship. 1) Their major conflict in season 10 was about Penny and Raj bonding , and ignoring Leonard. Nothing to do with Sheldon. They themselves invited Raj over. It was no one else's fault but their own. Also that episode made it seem like they both have more in common with Raj individually, than with each other. 2) Leonard is the one who went off to north sea and cheated on Penny (or at the very least lied to her for 2 years), despite their heartfelt goodbyes in season 6 . 3) Leonard is the one who kept the secret bank account from Penny and said he doesn't have to try anymore in their marriage while simultaneously treating her like a trophy . 4) Leonard is the one, who was IMO, somewhat whiny and unsupportive of Penny changing her job because he was insecure of Zack. Honestly, I thought Zack was the best part of the Lenny plot in 10.22. 5) Penny is the one who hid Leonard's belongings and action figures in Veracity Elasticity that led to conflict , again, nothing to do with Sheldon. 6) Penny is the one who invited her brother to stay over in 4A without consulting Leonard , again it had nothing to do with Sheldon. Sheldon is not the only one who makes digs at Lenny. Raj called Leonard unattractive and literally said that Penny will dump him eventually, so she should just work with Zack now. Leonard himself jokes how he begged Penny for years . This was a joke even in Intimacy Acceleration, more than 2 years ago, about Leonard joking how you can make people fall in love by grovelling. When Sheldon said Lenny have nothing in common, they say nothing. When Professor Proton asks what they talk about , Leonard says nothing. When the therapist asks Penny why they married, she jokes about tank tops.....the digs/jokes at Lenny are from all directions, including Leonard and Penny themselves.

    Jim Parsons is presenting at the Primetime Emmy Awards on sunday. No idea about the rest of the cast.
  8. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    The fight between Sheldon and Howard was actually started by Howard, not Sheldon.Howard makes derogatory remarks towards Sheldon too , like how he didnt go through puberty and what not simply because Sheldon used to be disinterested in sex/dating . Or how Amy is ruining her life by being with Sheldon. Not sure we can completely get rid of these jokes because ,imo these are long running jokes, that general audiences dont seem to mind (atleast that's what i feel). So the contract means Howard is still allowed to insult Sheldon, but Sheldon is not allowed to insult Howard lol ?
  9. [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    Not really, because there is more to Penny than her looks ? She is a person , not just an ego boost trophy/lust object? Otherwise that would just give me an impression that Leonard only values her because she is hot and the only thing they have is sex. People grow old and dont always look the same. What will they have then ? I would like more examples of what else Leonard values about her as a person, other than the fact that she is hot. Why not.

  11. [Spoilers] Season 11 Shipping Lanes

    Really ? I confess, I loved Jim Parsons’ older work (esp s1-4). ! I was happy when Jim got nominated for his first Emmy and won (his first and only) Golden Globe - in s2 and s4 respectively. Also, i don't agree that Jim failed to make Sheldon lovable and enjoyable on his own. I think he largely succeeded and I felt Sheldon was always human and never a robot! This was also said(and shown) in an old pre-season 4 episode that he was caring and had emotions. In many ways he was more endearing back then , than now. A TV critic said in 2008, something I agreed with: Sheldon has become a character to love, and Jim Parsons is doing something rare on network TV: making intellectualism admirable, even heroic . But my liking of Sheldon was never really dependent and conditional only on Amy. I liked Sheldon for who he was- for himself. I find Sheldon less interesting now post s6 and the overuse of Sheldon just magnifies it. Another thing : I think there are many times when Sheldon comes across to me as intentionally mean-spirited, unfunny, petty, unhappy, regressed, childish , washed up and failing in his career in later seasons. Like wise there were many times Sheldon came across to me as innocent, sharp, funny, insightful, well meaning, intelligent and perfectly content in the earlier seasons. That doesn't mean he doesn't have deeper issues but I don't view it as black and white at all.
  12. [Spoilers] Season 11 Shipping Lanes

    In general, I don't think longevity and ratings necessarily mean high quality and creativity. Just because a show is 12 seasons long doesn't mean quality is good. That is subjective. There are some, IMO, awful long running TV shows ( for instance, i didn't really like 2.5 Men) so I don't see the point . Likewise, many critically acclaimed award-winning shows get cancelled early on too. For tbbt, IMO, there was a period of time, where I felt they did have quality and the writing was (IMO) funny and sharp, especially Sheldon-centric humor(season 2-6) but I am not that sold on TBBT post season 7. Season 10 had some good episodes in the first half, but other than that ...not really.
  13. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    I think Penny has simply gotten more used to it or is more open to it. Maybe that is what makes her different from Priya or Ramona who were too intolerant and controlling. Bernadette threw away Howard's tardis and while Amy kept it , it was only to seduce Sheldon. I don't think of Penny as an extreme anti-nerd, atleast not anymore than Amy or Bernadette. Penny's attitude towards gaming/sci-fi/comic books/movies based on those feels a bit more nuanced and not always the "bunch of dopey space movies for 12 year olds" attitude. Penny played the role of "Spock" in Sheldon's acting skit. Penny beat Sheldon at Halo, she got super into Age of Conan, Penny has participated in Paintball with them and she has quoted "Empire Strikes Back". She also bought Leonard a transporter from the comic book store and referenced star trek shields while defending the guys to Alicia.I also remember Penny using Starfleet Academy's unwinnable command scenario to help Sheldon apologize to Howard in Apology Insuffieciency. While Sheldon was driving her to ER, Penny again referenced spock as Sheldon said spock would pull over immediately if the Enterprise's check engine light was on. There is also stuff like Penny knowing "Superman's ice thingy" about the Fortress of Solitude. Also , Penny probably wasn't interested in Star Strek at all herself, yet she knew that a napkin signed by Leonard Nimoy would mean the world to Sheldon. So, I think while Penny is not always interested, the end result is that she has( intentionally or unintentionally) become a part of many funny iconic geek moments of TBBT (ironically) .
