    [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    I totally agree . Would Leonard have done the same nice things, if Penny was ugly/unattractive ? I have doubts. The main show runners are male, and so, TBBT is from male POV. The "nice" guy gets the hot girl cliche is beaten to death on millions of other shows and movies and sometimes male writers are blind to things that are more apparent to women. Like instances of Leonard treating Penny like a trophy and not valuing her beyond her looks. I think he wanted to have a rellationship with her and obviously why he did many nice things for her. It wasn't pure genorosity/selflessness. Nothing wrong with that. No one is purely selfless, To be selfish is human nature.

    As a woman, I would consider it super creepy, if i heard that "babies" line IRL. It was done clearly as a punchline to comically estabalish Leonard's interest in Penny and Sheldon's "imaginary" comeback. I thought it was very obvious and predictable plot development though .

    I agree, the ballpit scene from Einstein Approximation is one of the best scenes of the series. It could have easily been one dimensional but Jim and Johnny played the physical comedy so well, it ended up being hysterical and memorable for me .

    [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    The top 12 IMDB rated episodes are: Bath Item Gift Hypothesis, Opening Night Excitation, Bow Tie Assymetry, Staircase Implementation, Adhesive Duck Deficiency, Maternal Capacitance, Barbarian Sublimation, Thanksgiving Decoupling, Justice League Recombination, Panty Pinata Polarization, Robotic Manipulation and Scavenger Vortex. What I noticed was, while Bow Tie Assymetry has a 9.2, other shamy wedding themed episodes like Confidence Erosion and Reclusive Potential are near the botton of the list. Not all similarly themed episodes are highly rated. I think season 11 finale might also be due to large number of guest stars and recurring characters .

    Penny has her own identity outside of Leonard. She deserves a last name of her own to be revealed atleast . I wouldn't mind if they reveal it.

    [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    I had no problem believing Shamy would get distracted by the equation. It IS the definition of Shamy for me. Their love of science and knowledge is fundamental to who they are as individuals and why they are attracted to each other first and foremost, irrespective of differing beliefs and hobbies. It is what separates them from other characters , who are also scientists, but more grounded . I actually thought it was nice that the writers decided to give the "science" aspect a sweet callback on the big day and also have Leonard join them, before Penny brought their attention back to the wedding. I hope something more can come of it in the next season for Shamy. While I don't know what exactly was Sheldon's breakthrough about, it could go well with how Sheldon got his spark back in string theory in the second half of the last season.

    [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 11

    It would have probably made more sense when they began dating but just this season, you had Sheldon make the effort to create a LHOTP themed birthday for Amy. He didn't have much interest in LHOTP either, yet he did it. So Amy wanting to know about comic books wouldn't have been that bad of an idea, even if she is secure about Sheldon's feelings. It is nice to make effort for each other and sometimes people even pick up their partner''s interests in movies/books/hobbies/food etc(though that wasn't necessarily the case here).

    1121 'The Comet Polarization' (April 19)

    I enjoyed this episode . It had some funny and refreshing story lines related to geek culture and science. I really liked Denise and it is nice that the writers have a female character genuinely interested in comic books, and not "faking it" for a guy . It hilarious how Sheldon kept going on and on about Denise and Amy's reaction to it. , I liked Penny wanting to be taken seriously and I think she deserves credit though Raj did set up the equipment in that particular time and space, so they should have joint credit.

    1120 'The Reclusive Potential' (April 12)

    I have heard about the "big bang" approach to software testing . Bill Prady worked as a programmer, not a tester though.

    1120 'The Reclusive Potential' (April 12)

    It wasn’t bad, but I agree, it was quite predictable. The whole “love saved Sheldon” sob story has been beaten to death indeed and I saw it coming a mile away with this never-ending wedding plot. I didn't see the point . I mean, the earth would not have stopped spinning had Sheldon stayed over a bit for dinner and discussed physics. Not sure why that is a bad thing anyway. If genders were reversed and Amy was giving up a science based discussion because she missed Sheldon, it would be considered sexist that her life revolves around a man, more than her work. Plenty of successful men (and women) don’t have a wife/husband or a kid. So it did make me roll my eyes more than anything. I thought it was an average episode and I didn’t laugh much. I found it a bit cheesy and lame, but I can see why some people would gush and swoon over this stuff. I also thought it was weird for them to give Raj crap about mentioning the hulk . Whatever happened to the intricate geeky discussions on this show ?

    Best Line/Quote of TBBT

    So many memorable and iconic Sheldon quotes are brilliant I have some favorites: Ah gravity, thou art a heartless bitch !! I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested. "WHEATON......................................................................................................!" Sheldon(to Priya) : You may have gone to Cambridge, but I’m an honorary graduate of Starfleet academy. What computer do you have and .....please don’t say a white one? A "little" physics ???!!!!???!!! Well, then may I suggest you get a very long stick and play panty pinata. Goodnight, and if there is an apocalypse, good luck! (to Raj) Interesting. You're afraid of insects and women. Ladybugs must render you catatonic. Rock papers scissors ! - Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors. Sheldon's spot explanation is another classic : 'In the winter that seat is close enough to the radiator to remain warm and yet not so close as to cause perspiration. In the summer it's directly in the path of a cross breeze created by opening windows there (pointing), and there (pointing again). It faces the blackboard at an angle that is neither direct, thus discouraging conversation, nor so far wide to create a parallax distortion. I could go on, but ... I think I've made my point.' My fave funniest Raj quotes : Holy crap are we nerdy! Oh, come on, dude. A robot hand's got a death grip on your junk. It's funny. Ask anyone Shut your ASS!!! I just have so many for other characters also, it is hard to pick a favorite

    Ooh yes that is a great clip ! I remember he said Jim had to audition twice, in part, because Chuck thought his audition as Sheldon was hilarious, genius and "shocking " . He wanted to make sure it wasn't a fluke of some kind he said : "Can he come back and do it again coz I thought maybe it was a fluke of some kind. But it wasn't a fluke"

    I think they really need something for Penny to do,. I think Penny is (or used to be) probably the second most popular character after Sheldon. At the very least, the character is one of the more popular ones. So I think they are under-utilizing her. There were some Penny-centric episodes like Barbarian Sublimation and maybe some others in season 6, but I think there are few of those. The last good season they focused on Penny was in season 7 with her quitting cheesecake factory and her acting career. After season 8, they just kinda gave up IMHO. Lately there has been very little going on for her own stories(there are stories to tell other than wedding and babies).

    Young Sheldon Discussion Thread

    have they ever said Sheldon can't or didn't have a crush on someone before season 1 of tbbt (2007) ? There is no reason to assume he didn't. I mean ...he isnt asexual or aromantic, is he ?Also he is 9 years in YS so it seemed like a platonic one sided 'crush' on an older girl who was intelligent and introduce him to geology . I think they just wanted to explain why Sheldon is so dismissive of geology. I feel they will soon run out of jokes if they start coming up with explanations for all his quirks !

    you think it was very mature and sensitive for Penny to clean Sheldon's toilet with a toothbrush and Lenny to mock him ? It was cruel . How come you forget about that ? How come Sheldon is the only bad guy ? And Leonard shouldn't have been keeping a secret from Penny in the first place, so he was also in the wrong. Sheldon may have been insensitive but he only revealed what was true in the first place.
