  1. Any ideas on anything else worth watching on TV. My five favorite shows are: 1 Chuck- in my opinion the best show on TV. 2 TBBT 3 Smallville 4 Supernatural 5 X-Files... I also like Vampire Dairies, South Park, Friends, Cheers and Seinfeld. These are my tastes. Does anyone have any other recommendations? Trying to get into Fringe at the moment.
  2. Easily the best episode this season, unfortunately thats not saying much. Started out strong at least. Not enough Penny and too much of the other girls. When are they gonna focus back on the core group? When I read about this episode coming I was more hopeful, wow a Wheaton party! But the actual party scene time was less than 3 minutes. They must have different writers doing the show now. Losing faith.
  3. Its not a drama. Its a sitcom. Penny didn't want to have sex with Raj. They did it with cheap TV Booze Drama and it was despicable. It sure as hell wasn't funny. Didn't say it was funny. Didn't say it wasn't cheap. But as I did say drama sales (though I did misspell it). And more what I was commenting on is Penny and Leonard are not married and were not dating when the event happened. I really don't get the whole "they were both single" angle. There's so much wrong with that. First Penny dumped Leonard, she was the love of his life and it's been made clear he isnt over her. No one knows these things better than a close friend which is what Raj is supposed to be. The idea of they're single so it's ok jus isn't real. When emotions are involved that goes out the window. I have two friends who haven't spoken for five years because of a similar situation, that situation got violent when it happened and that isn't unusual when these things happen. They castrated Leonard, vilified Raj and made Penny out to be a slut. From a basic writing point it was just terrible. Penny had no attraction to Raj. Her main comments on him had been he was creepy when silent and an ass when drunk. Then suddenly she "would be all over him" it makes no sense. Then to have Penny keep the secret even though it would solve her problems and Leonard act like nothings wrong was stupid. I mean Howard was more upset about the poetry than Leonard was about Raj sleeping with the love of his life. Let's also not forget Leonard wasn't happy about Penny getting a lift home with Bearnadettes ex and when they were on the train with Summer Glau Howard mentioned would it be ok if him and Raj tried it on with Penny and Leonard said no. The whole thing was done for shock value nothing else and then they screwed up any chance of resolution. Shocking writing all over. When they look back over TBBT years this will be the moment they say the series jumped the shark. Nicksap has it right. I agree with you but would add that the idea that if Leonard found out they didn't actually have intercourse, just everything that leads up to it would or should change anything, certainly is not the social convention. Maybe times have changed and morals have lessened since I was younger. Maybe if that is the writer's idea of how to resolve this problem, and when Leonard finds out he does a dance like he just won the lottery, it will be the time when I change the channel for good. Maybe these are the same writers who wrote for Dallas or Desperate Housewives, and any talk is good talk, who knows.
  4. Wow, you miss the point, even assuming Leonard and Penny never have a relationship again, Raj and Penny (I'm assuming) were not meant to be characters you love to hate. Over the course of the season and apparently for the future, the powers that be seem to be determined to make Penny the biggest slut on T.V., and Raj the biggest A-hole, but until the season 4 final episode at least you could say they both had a line they wouldn't cross, and had some morals, and were loyal to their friends. People forget or intentionally leave out that the Leonard/Penny relationship breakup was not mutual, he loves her and would still be with her had she not broken up with him, so to say that it's okay for her to sleep with his friends because they are not together, or that he is dating someone else is to victimize him twice, (Through the series is has never been shown that Penny has any problem getting her some). They both acted like Leonard didn't exist, and it's not like they had strong feelings for each other that they could no longer resist, (through most of the series they had little interactions or conversations for that matter), they ultimately just didn't care, they were both horrible human beings. It wasn't just that one episode, the writers had been slowly making both characters less likable over the course of the season, and then dropped the A-bomb at the end in case the audience had any misconceptions about where they were going with these characters. I'm not going to get into what constitutes sex, it's been covered extensively already, accept to say many a relationship has been ended, yes that includes platonic friendships, over far less. They turned Penny into a thoughtless Slut, Raj into a complete Ass, and Leonard into a total Wimp. WTG. The writers attempted to fix the situation, at least they are listening to their audience, was idiotic (they resolved their differences over a round of paintball), and it solved nothing, if anything it made Leonard look like a fool, and I wouldn't even call him a man at this point. For any rational person these two people would be out of their life. Picture this, a season where Sheldon is gone, with the exception of Howard (though Raj attempted to kiss his girlfriend right in front of him, not to mention the love poems, and everthing is okay?), would this really be must-see t.v. with these 3 ding dongs in it, would you really be interested watching them interact now? (Unless Penny walks around her apartment buck naked). BTW the first four episodes of season 5 were terrible, very few laughs and the scene with Raj and Howard with the kissing machine was just completely gross, I couldn't even watch it. They better right the train or I'm gone. Save the shock value for dramas, I watch comedies to laugh. Great comedies (Seinfeld, Friends, Cheers) BTW never happened in these great classics.
  5. To quote Jerry from the Seinfeld show, when he was asked when has sex taken place, he responded "when a nipple makes it's first appearance". While that may be a little exaggerated, IMO not by much. Through the seasons they really have turned Penny into a bimbo, and it's a shame because I really liked her character at the beginning. Some people don't want to admit that she would have had intercourse with Raj, who is a close friend with her ex, Leonard, who BTW is also suppose to be her friend, in his bed no less, this after admitting out loud that she loved him, and the only thing preventing that full act from occurring was that Raj had P.E. event,and had to settle for a short happy ending. You can make excuses for her many flings, she was young, single, sowing her wild oats etc., but this act was unforgiving. About Raj, there's little more I can say that already hasn't been posted, he's filthy garbage. The actor himself stated that this was his favorite scene from all five seasons of the show, so he's an idiot in real life too. Bad job on the part of the executives and writers of the show.
