  1. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    I wouldn't say it would be considered "progressive" in america...but non-traditional, unconventional and not Hetero-normative would be better words to describe a scenario if Sheldon's best man is a woman and Amy's maid of honor is one of the guys. Traditionally MoH( and bridesmaids) are females and best man is a male chosen by the groom. These are duties based on traditional gender roles. Since science doesn't necessarily have to differentiate based on gender , so they could potentially get the best person for the job if they had applied whatever experiment they have on all characters, not just the guys only or girls only. BUT Based on the current plot im just wondering how did howard get so many points.

    Pls Don't leave the forum . Welcome . I like reading different opinions and some of the stuff you said i agree with

    The shamy wedding planning does sound cliche and dull. 11.12 seems like a typical run of the mill sitcom couple plot where they secretly or openly give "tasks" to their friends to see who performs them the best and it ends with a standard sitcom ~heartwarming~ moment. Just re-watch season 7 of FRIENDS or many other sitcoms to get similar variations. The one thing somewhat different that they can do is add some gender non-conformity or gender bending stuff where it turns out(from the experiment) that Sheldon's best man is a woman ( Penny or Bernadette ) and Amy's perfect made of honor turns out to be a man (Raj or Howard) ..or something . Because all men and women don't always conform to gender stereotypes and traditional gender roles. But TBBT being mostly a stuffy traditional sitcom, Amy will only test the girls and Sheldon will only test the guys. Predictable and IC I guess. I am just thinking of a different (but an impossible) scenario lol,

    Good point. I think Sheldon is sometimes judged harshly on every little thing he does- whether he is s6! Sheldon or not, whether he is saying all the right things or not; whether he is ruining things or not, whether he is making the right gestures or not…but Amy’s growth, is often forgotten. I liked that Amy wasn’t s6! Amy either. It shows how Amy has grown and changed . The elopement suggestion seemed like a practical solution to something causing them stress. Amy’s overall sentiment, that a big wedding is not as important as marrying Sheldon and spending the rest of her life with him was refreshing, Her being genuinely happy with the prospect of a simple city hall wedding was a sign of maturity.

    Huh ? Now i am confused. Can you point out where in my post did i say that Leonard should put up with Sheldon's terrible antics ? I was merely agreeing with the Op stating that Sheldon did save his life and at the very least saved him from physical harm and injuries and did not blab about it to the authorities. I didn't see anything incorrect in what the OP posted ( the bold part i quoted) . That is all. Anything else is just your interpretation of my words. But maybe i needed a reminder why i hate visiting this thread in the first place .

    No idea if/why others were snarky towards you but i agree with the bold part . Sheldon saved Leonard's life since he knew exactly how much time was left before the rocket exploded . Without Sheldon , Leonard would likely have been dead or would have blown up in the elevator. He was seconds away .

    Haha . i admit, i thought it was amusing to see them back at the Cheesecake factory with Jim and Kunal doing old style mannerisms lol. Sheldon being picky about his burger/club and speechless Raj- it was kinda funny. They have aged though , so naturally it won't feel the same, but they tried.

    But if they showed Leonard trying and failing at kayaking or Leonard feeling tired during a hike, while Penny is enjoying it, that would only highlight jokes about their differences. Leonard was feeling miserable in the football episode too. He tried to learn the rules , but it ultimately left him bored and he got out of there before half time. He admitted he was only doing it to keep having sex with Penny('mating privileges') . There was also an episode where Leonard admitted he did everything Penny likes- her choice of movies , her hobbies and even letting her eat curly fries- to get sex. The writers should find activities that both of them can naturally enjoy rather than one person being miserable and only putting up with it.

    If it had been Stuart being pissed and angry at some of them, it would have made more sense to me, since they all bully him and are IMO , mean to him. He is more of a punching bag, than Raj is. Btw thanks for the TR. Hope you had a nice time .
  10. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    It doesn't have to be Sheldon's birthday, it could be at anytime. Sheldon's romantic "milestone" gifts in the last few years have been based on Amy's likes and dislikes (or gestures symbolic of something) for instance, the brain scan gift, , him giving up Star Wars or him ( trying to do ) something LHOTP related. So i'd like to see more of Amy's equivalent of that to Sheldon. I thought those R2D2 and calligraphy suggestions were cool . And maybe i am the only one, but i liked that they initially tried to apply a math algorithm ( i wonder which one) to wedding planning. Usually wedding planning on tv shows can get repetetive but atleast the writers are making Shamy's a bit different and funny from other couples' (whether we actually see that or not is, besides the point).
  11. [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    In Opening Night, Sheldon gave up star wars for Amy. Now he is taking interest in doing something Little House on the Prairie- related. Next time, Amy should make a romantic gesture on Sheldon’s birthday that is about something Sheldon is obsessed with, to make him happy(It doesn’t necessarily have to be only to seduce him …) . It could be a fun role reversal.
  12. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    It does feel OOC, because when the show started Raj, couldn't even speak to the female population. some ways, he is actually more confident and functional now But I would cut Raj some slack. I feel Raj is at an unfair disadvantage here because,, he did not grow up in the US. He is educated and wealthy, but there has to be some culture difference he had to get used to, and maybe some unpleasant experiences that he is an "outsider", including casual racism . So maybe this is down to his specific immigrant experience ? Having a friend like Howard who makes fun of his culture and mocks him for being too effeminate made it worse ? The others also mock him. Raj generally feeling left out , like a seventh wheel, also could be a contributing factor. I agree that it is largely Raj’s own fault when it comes to his misfortunes, romantic or otherwise. They all mock each other. But Raj is the closest with Howard out of everyone in the group, so if his Dad were to blame someone for throwing insults/passive aggressive/snarky remarks at him and decreasing his confidence over the years, , it would be Howard. I can buy that.
