  1. Penny's inner life is not just limited to pining after Leonard or talking to other girls about her relationship with Leonard. There is more to her . Which is why I can understand why some people wanted Penny to date a nice, impressive, attractive and educated(not genius) guy before getting back with Leonard in s5 -a real relationship like Leonard had with Priya . She could have easily met someone like that at the gym. They wasted season 4 and 5 when she was single imo. As for season 6, the writers had Penny use her body to get Leonard tenure, which is ok I guess , but at the same time,
  2. LMAO. this made me laugh....unfortunately thats not something i can say about tbbt these days
  3. Jim Parsons won multiple Emmys and a Golden Globe for his older portrayal of Sheldon for a reason -atleast to me- I could definitely see why he won from a personal comedic standpoint. Can't say the same now. A pity. So without doubt, the older portrayal of Sheldon felt more iconic and just funnier to me. Give him anything under the sun- from Virtual Presence Devices, graphene atoms, bongos to flatlands, tuvan throat singing, number 73 or the "tall man from Cornwall" - he made it all work including the one-of-a-kind take on interpersonal relationships like the social curiosity
  4. funny, I actually thought, it was also Sheldon who ultimately knowingly (or unknowingly? ) manipulated Amy and he got under Amy's skin by questioning her adherence to the scientific method and getting her to continue to the experiment . And Amy was turned on enough by it, to suggest a makeout -which he agreed to as he was turned on too.
  5. i too, really liked the girl who spoke Klingon - Vanessa. she was gorgeous, seemed smart and geeky too . a character like her had potential to be interesting and different imo , I would also like to add that I really liked Alice from season 5, who was a comic book artist. irrespective of whether they dated S or L, atleast women who are into sci-fi and comic books EXIST in the tbbt verse.
  6. thanks @Tensor . that was very informative. I don't always understand why people claim Lenny were the ,main focus in the early seasons, when it looks like Sheldon still dominated the screen time and Shenny had more time than Lenny. Although to be fair , this is only season 2. It is possible season 3 had more Lenny time. And wow....Lenny had 12 min more alone time than s10, back when they weren't even a couple and the entire gang used to have more screen time back then !!!! I suppose, that is expected as this show now feels like a tale of 3 couples(instead of 7 individuals) and group scene
  7. We all see things differently. To me, the big picture feels like Sheldon, as a character has his strengths and weaknesses. There are some things he is getting better at like his relationship , some things he is good at as he always was like math/quantum mech and solid research, somethings he is losing his edge at- like losing the video game to a teenager, and somethings he still screws up like reading social cues /emotions and disclosing too much info about his private life to strangers. Also, even if it is far fetched for him to go swimming with Ramona or not wear a suit while working w
  8. Sheldon is obsessed with trains and it is not too farfetched he would get dirty and play with engines. I mean, he jumped in an unhygienic kids' ball pit , when he was obsessed with graphene atoms in season 3 too. also, so what if he is better at baking than Raj ? can't he be ? he used to bake zucchini bread for Penny and Amy liked his sourdough bread too. So he can quickly learn baking croissants from Raj too. He is good at math and memorizing random facts . he is also good at cleaning and organizing. but he fails with his motor skills, he struggles with reading emotions and cues(th
  9. i was kidding or rather, just speculating for fun, based on the ideas others were suggesting(if they wanted any in-show explanations). agree. yeah, I think he looks fit and much better now.
  10. exactly @luminous ! IMO they were all great in their respective roles from the very first episode. they are still good, even when the writing is bad.
  11. i think Jim has a great physique right now. He trains, but he said in an interview that he is unlikely to go overboard and turn into the hulk, so i'm sure it won't be too OOC . besides, who said, nerds can't bulk up? if they really want to, they can use Sheldon as an example of a nerd who breaks the stereotype......something like @Desdemona suggested lol. i'm curious, did you watch season 5 ?I thought Jim had a bit of bulked up physique in season 5 too lol. they never explained it, so i don't think they will this time. it doesn't bother me, and i'm sure it doesn't bother th
  12. Sheldon was in the pilot, I think he should be there with the gang too. I think Sheldon should come back to California and it would be nice if they all went out for Indian food at the end of the episode , like they did in the pilot, after helping Penny. Raj would hate it though.
  13. thank you for the in-depth analysis @Tensor. I see that Howard/Raj (11 min), Sheldon/Leonard(10.05 min) , Sheldon/Penny(9.25 min) and Penny / Amy(7.20 min) pairings still have relatively higher screen time among non romantic pairings . and WOW, Raj/Cinnamon received more time than Leonard/Amy and Amy/Bernadette
  14. my problem is with how Leonard is written. The writers more often than not, treated Leonard as just a vehicle to get the " hot girl " from the beginning. They don't seem to explore more, atleast not nearly as much as they have with Sheldon and Howard. Now that Leonard's romantic life/will they -wont - they drama (which imo was the major focus of Leonard centric plots in the previous seasons) has resolved and he got Penny, they don't know what to do with him.That is what is boring to me. And Fyi, ofcourse, a character can lack strange quirks and still be interesting. I find Pe
  15. Why are you blaming Sheldon for everything ? They still write Howard ,Bernadette and even Penny with the girls and/or Sheldon/Raj (outside of Lenny) relatively well imo. I know it is very easy to blame Sheldon, but I felt Sheldon always had a prominent focus in TBBT as early as season 2. Why is this news ? I can point you many many Sheldon centric episodes in season 2-4. Sheldon was the breakout character, and also an award winning character back then. Not saying that is good or bad, but to me, tbbt didnt feel like a true ensemble in the early seasons . If you read the review for The Co
  16. I read that Mayim has denied that the original cast took a pay cut. Not exactly denied per sey, but she said we shouldnt believe everything. http://people.com/tv/mayim-bialik-reports-big-bang-theory-costars-pay-cuts/?xid=socialflow_twitter_peoplemag So are the original 5 still getting the same pay as last year ?
  17. Ofcourse, they both could have not dated anyone. I just don't understand this "god forbid Sheldon be interested in another girl " attitude, at a point when Amy herself was actively looking and interested in other guy. I was responding to the original post that said, Sheldon must have backed out if the same situation occurred in season 9. if things get serious with another girl , we expect Sheldon to back out. If things get serious with Amy and another guy, we expect Sheldon to do something, not Amy. So in both cases, we require Sheldon to do all the work. I just didn
  18. But The writers clearly have it in themselves to have Amy be tempted by other guys and have her be interested in dating other guys, why shouldn't have Sheldon done the same during the break up ? I mean , why is it do abhorrent to have Sheldon look at others , given that Amy was doing exactly the same ? He was single and didn't have to answer to anyone , so why does "tempted" even come into question ? I don't quite see the logic why he couldn't have also been interested, in some one who fit his likes ? Why must it always be downplayed that he latched on to a friend or dismiss someone for a f
  19. amazing writing , cinematography and music in this show ! Claire danes was hilarious. I felt Rachel and Denise were great characters too. season 1 was nice. I particularly liked the "Nashville" and "Mornings" episodes. The second episode where they introduce his parents was amazing too. Aziz's dad cracks me up ! I know Aziz cast many of his real life relatives in the show , so i guess you can argue it adds to the authenticity even if the acting can be a bit uneven. I am watching season 2 right now . curious what people think about it.
  20. one TAG related dream sequence I felt was quiet funny was the one with the Morlocks eating Sheldon and Sheldon screams "Leonarddddddddd !!!!". It was not just a dream. It was a dream inside a dream !
  21. I agree with you but if it wasnt for Sheldon , Amy would still be friendless and alone today. I think that Sheldon is also the best thing for Amy . If it wasn't for Sheldon accepting Amy into his social circle( and we know how difficult it was for him to accept people into his social circle) and if it wasn't for Sheldon accepting Amy for who she was in season 4- Leonard, Penny , Bernie and others would have nothing to do with her. In the beginning when all his friends thought she was obnoxious, he still maintained his friendship with her. He accepted the change in Amy . He accepte
  22. For season 2 and 3 , I wanted to know maybe just Lenny vs Shenny vs Shelnard time ? Just the big 3 relationships. Or if that is also too vague, maybe just total screen times for individual character ? For season 4 - Lenny alone time vs Shamy alone time ?
  23. I was curious, what was the relative screen time of Sheldon vs Lenny in season 2, 3 and 4 ? That was before Shamy was a big component of the show.
  24. I just realized Jim is wearing a burgundy velvet jacket for the first dance . Beautifull pictures !! They are a dashing and elegant couple and so generous to share pics on social media . I wish them all the best !!
