  1. That was just hypothetical, to show a way in which they'd have her pregnant but I wouldn't like it.
  2. It was more than one episode, and in story they dated for several weeks (otherwise she wouldn't meet Sheldon's criteria to be considered "living with" Leonard). Two is too many to cheat on, one is too many, but factually, Leonard did not cheat in every girlfriend he had.
  3. I was reacting to the idea of Penny being pregnant no matter what, suggesting an option that will be sad IMO - that she gets pregnant but really doesn't want kids, not just has fears of having them but does want them. Your comments suggest her wanting kids but being afraid of having them, that's differrent.
  4. I have to disagree. This is all hypothetical, of course, but if Penny gets pregnant in spite of truly not wanting kids, and keeps the baby and raises them because she kind of has no choice, that would be a very sad ending, IMO.
  5. Is a two dollar bill creepy? You learn something every day 😕

    [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 12

    I didn't notice when I watched, but is that a new recycle shirt?
  7. They can always say they were surprisingly successful and she got pregnant right away. It will be much more believable than Bernadette being pregnant for about 11 months the first time and getting a positive pregnancy test like a week after concieving the second time 🤷‍♀️ I'm leaning toward you're too hopeful haha but everything is possible I guess
  8. I don't like the idea of a surprise pregnancy. They can make her be surprisingly happy about it, but I'd rather having her get pregnant willingly, wanting a child.
  9. Oh wow! Haven't thought of this, that's so little!
  10. This may happen, I hope so for Zack, but maybe not in the next one. The articles said Kraft will participate in "multiple episodes", that sounds like more than 2. If they do this in 12×15 then there's no much reason to have her later on.
  11. I'm not saying he will for sure go through with it, just what would be if he does. I do think for now he said yes or at least said he'd think about it, then in this week's taping we'll either see him preparing to donate, perhaps signing a contract with Zack and Marissa, or making the decision/Zack and Marissa tryign to convince him.
  12. Not really. He wouldn't be getting to be a father, just have a biological child, and at least according to what we've seen in the episode his main/one of his main motivations was to help a couple who wants kids but can't have them. Why yes, Penny, I do, many times, when I watch the show and see your character, e.g., "The Procreation Calculation", "The Romance Recalibration", "The Viewing Party Combustion" and many more.
  13. I thought this was one of the better episodes of the season, one that, as opposed to many others this season, does stand by the standards I'd expect from earlier BBT seasons. I didn't LOL or anything and were it in any season prior to 8 I don't think it would be considered a very good episode, but it was at a level with better post season 8 episodes and mediocre/a bit weaker pre season 8 episodes. There were various amusing parts, the Pen, Astin and Cuoco gave great performances IMO and, as opposed to too many episodes this season, it did not upset me. The Zangen plot, though another one for Bernadette, was IMO more about Penny, which was long overdue. Finally Penny got a plot where she was front and center, and where something about this character, about her self-perception and way of dealing with challenges and her feelings was "said" (BTW, I think Bernadette saying everybody feels not good enough, not smart enough, was perhaps somewhat true but was the wrong move by the writers because making it a general thing was a little like withdrawing what they "said" about Penny). The "haven't seen it yet" was a fun and very timely bit. "Fun with Flags" was indeed fun and funny as always, and as always I think Mayim kills as Amy being awkward in front of the camera. The SA (just realized it stands for both Super Asymmetry and Sheldon and Amy, what a hoot!) plot was good as a plot, I liked that they mentioned it would be potentially getting a Nobel much earlier than expected, and I do think Sheldon and Amy showed a lot of growth there. In season 4 who would've thought these two would one day have such a conversation, wanting to sacrifice such a huge thing for each other? Some may say this is OOC and the show ruining the Sheldon charcater and so... but I see it as earned character development, which is a great thing to show in the show's last season. I do have reservations here, that are not about the plot itself but about the "larger picture": 1) Here we have another SA plot, after already having sooo many this season, many of them in a row, this one coming after only an episode break after the previous one. Meanwhile, Penny drops a no kids bomb in episode 3, only for the issue to come up 9 whole episodes later, with a whacky plot that ends with us not knowing Leonard's decision, and then we don't hear a word about it in this episode! Ridiculous is way too small a word for that. 2) Sheldon and Amy getting a Nobel or a Nobel nomination feels unnecessary, too much of a fairy tale IMO. Like their wedding, it's too sweet and fairy-taley for me, which makes me dislike it. And it just makes the Sheldon-Leonard imbalance all that greater. Sheldon may get all his dreams, Leonard got an important one of his blown in his face. Yay. Also no word about Anu, but that makes more sense, supposedly they're dating now. I was fine with Bernadette up until her scene with Raj and Howard, that was too much IMO and painted her too bad. Penny in the end was a bit too Bernie IMO, but maybe she was trying to implement what she had learned from her?
  14. Penny has been overdue a plot that about her or her and someone else in this case. She got a new responsibility at work and there was also a saying there about her way of handling challenges and feelings. Though I do not like at all that there was nothing about the donation bomb from the very previous episode, I think this is a rare good move by the writers for the Penny character.
  15. LOL It makes some sense though. When I read the dialogue you wrote (before that line) I thought they may be heading toward a revelation about Penny's no kids decision, you might have thought similarly and that's why your brain filled in "pregnant" when you couldn't hear well enough.
  16. Bernadette has gotten quite a lot of plots (relatively) this season, I think more than Penny. Maybe they're overcompensating for Melissa's absence last year (maternity leave)?
  17. Your TR was amazing, in fact it would border on creepy if you didn't miss or got wrong some parts! Haha

    Cast, Crew, And Bbt News

    That sounds interesting! Though there probably won't be a way for me to see that
  19. Hmm. I agree abot the boat kiss (although I mostly see that as terrible OOC writing) and about sleeping with and cheating on Priya, and that he blew the guitarist sleeping over out of proportion. I disagree about the other things, I think they blown out of proportion (my phrase of the day I guess?), e.g., the emergency money - not a good move at all but it was something he used to do and kept doing, he didn't start it with the purpose of stopping her from spending, the problem was that he didn't get full in with his new wife, joining their resources. The money for the car was before that and it was partly because of status reasons that relate to his insecurities, but also partly because it was a gift, so he did not want the money back. Anyway, you're totally entitled to your own opinion. Some like a certain character and some do not, totally understandable.

    Future Spin-off

    This is a bit similar to what I'd like, which is a spinoff that centers on the gang'd children as young adults (which will open up possibilities that closed as the BBT gang grew older) with appearances by the parents (same actors with makeup, I can't see other people filling these roles).
  21. Whatever they do, leaving it to the very end will IMO not be enough, no matter how much it ties to the first episode. IMO, many episodes are needed to "fix" what they did, and they only have 10. Some say when they wrote 12×03 they may have thought they had another season, which may be true, but then there were 9 episodes with nothing about this, then they dropped the donation bomb and then wasted another 2 episodes with nothing about the no kids decision or the sperm donation.
  22. If this was the case (and I know you're not saying it was for sure, this is just hypothetical) then it will be sacrificing a lot for the sake of "symmetry" and nodding to the pilot, which is somewhat similar to HIMYM's case. I would like to think writers would not want to end HIMYM style but who knows... To be honest I don't think these writers care much about how Lenny, and especially Leonard, fans feel and just care about fulfilling all of Sheldon's dreams. This could be true, but there are so many other things they could've done to postpone it, without writing themselves into a corner and making many fans upset.
  23. And wouldn't it be nice if Amy then moves a box to reveal Penny's pregnant belly? But the thing is, for this to be a happy ending they have to make a strong case that Penny does want children, and one or two episodes won't cut it in my mind, although it may be more than enough in the writers' minds. Then again they may not want to make this case at all and leave it with Leonard donating and them not having children, not realizing how much this brings Leonard fans down. I'm totally with you on the view that women should not be portrayed as if the only thing that will make them happy/complete is having children, and that not everyone has to want and have kids, but as I've said before, I think 12X03 was a huge mistake and there was no need to suddenyl make Penny not want kids because it wasn't like that before and it makes this "feel-good" show upset many of its fans. There was just no need for that, at all. If they really really wanted to correct what they with Bernadette, having her change her mind like nothing even though she seemed to have a solid opinion, they could've had another character take that stand, like Denise or whoever... This way we wouldn't have a character many of us like have its heart broken.
  24. They can have 4 consecutive episode (or 3 consecutive and one after one episode break, I don't remember exactly) about Super Asymmetry and mention the Nobel nomination in this one, but they can't take a second to have it mentioned or clearly implied that Leonard said yes or is still thinking about it (or said no but I doubt it, we would've seen that in the end of the episode itself). Unbelievable. Or believable by the low standards set by the writers as far as Lenny stories go.
