  1. I find it hard to believe someone wouldn't be interested in Penny.
  2. I also never understand why they make Penny depended on Leonard so much or her life is a wreck. I agree Raj was the only one that carried that howardcand Bernadette were getting married, the rest of the group was only caring about their problems. Yes last yrs finale was contreversial this one wasn't.
  3. The biggest challenge for the writers in Season 6 is to bring some sort of reason to the L/P relationship. Their current state gives both of them only part of what they want: - Penny has Leonard completely. She seems to brag about this. They have made her depended on him for order in her life and to boost her self worth. Her own father has even begged Leonard to "not give up on her" since he fears without Leonard, Penny will have an unhappy live in some trailer park. She is not likely to let him go now not after what we saw in season 4. But she is so confused about Leonard's reasons for loving her so much she is not likely to want to get married. - Leonard feels he may have Penny but only on her terms. For a man who is suppose to be a genius he is clueless with Penny. Penny does hide her insecurities from him but she has left clues to how Leonard should allow her time to work her way through them. When he found out from Sheldon that she felt unworthy of him because of her lack of education, what does he do? He gives her a procure for the local Community College. She freaks out and he get their relationship its first breakup. He just wants to marry Penny tomorrow and declare victory for his now five year old quest. But that quest does not include listening to her or noticing her need for an explanation for why he decided to bury her with love. I agree with you but the first time the didn't break up it was just one date they went out. I agree if Leonard marries her today he can say finally I got Penny the hot blonde across the hall, but can he say why he married her? Around Penny Leonard is very dumb the example you gave is very good one instead of reassuring her in some way and saying she doesn't need a dgree to date me, what does he do he does the last thing he should do and she had every right to do what she did and slammed the door in his face.
  4. lol. So are you saying that all guys are so shallow that they only sleep with women who are good looking? A guy would never sleep with a woman just because she will put out? No guys want to be with a beautiful woman, not a unattractive one, I've never seen a good looking guy with an ugly girl I'm sure there are some just haven't seen any. I do agree they need to do something with Raj he walks around with alchol in him so he can talk when the girls are around.
  5. 7.Disagree...Sorry "FIX" yes replace "NO" never break up the band. If anyone has any idea at all about how they could fix Raj I'd love to hear it. For me, he is forever the guy who tried to have sex with a girl who was black-out drunk (must have been like trying to have sex with a rag doll) when he should have blah, blah season 4 finale blah, blah, etc. etc. (probably shouldn't reopen that now). And not only that, but what exactly does Raj contribute to the show now? Yeah, yeah, I get it. You like how the show is going. Some of us don't. For one we don't know exactly know the whole story with raj and penny she wasn't too passed out to put the condom on for him, raj is a very important to the show if he got therapy to deal with his mutism I'd think that whole be a good storyline and I am not saying the show is perfect far from it, there's numerous changes I'd like to be made but to say get rid of the relationships, not going to happen, they've been featured throughout the series just not to this degree this season.
  6. I think they've done with Amy hitting on Penny, haven't seen it in a while, I don't think it's too unrealistic if she's sex starved and a virgin, remember what she was like when she first came on here, plus guys are attracted to attractive women and Amy is not that, also she has mentioned how she never mentioned having any friends until now. Agree unless Sheldon starts returning Amy's feelings it's just draging on and delaying the predictable outcome and needs to move on.
  7. Agree with everything except cutting out raj and cut the relationships. As for saying it's a soap then what are other comedys then?
  8. Actually Sheldon's initial being with Amy was from a intelligent stainpoint and without him knowing Penny he probably wouldn't have been Amy's friend. I disagree that Sheldon isn't attracted to Penny, now he might not be interested in her in that way(or any female except Amy) as of right now but I don't believe he's not attracted to her.
  9. That's what I've been saying it's that she realized she might have realized she loved him, it's what he replaced her with. She's not as smart as the guys but she's far from dumb, as far as I know there's only one reason for him dating her until it's revealed, unfortunately companies need someone with a piece of paper that says they're smart. I think the poster is talking about Penny feeling insecure about herself when she thinks about the other women Leonard has dated. Like in that episode when she asked Sheldon about Leonard's previous girlfriends "has he ever dated someone who wasn't a complete brainiac?". Penny has a lot of insecurity going on with regards to her education and intelligence. That's why she freaked out the first time after they dated. She thought she wasn't smart enough for him. Leonard has dated a woman with a PhD in French Literature (although for Sheldon it doesn't count since she was french LOL) Joyce Kim (a north-corean spy -not anyone can be a spy btw-) Leslie (Physicist) Stephanie (Medical Doctor) Priya (a respected Lawyer, who, according to Penny is a "sofisticated and sucessful woman who makes me feel like a toothless jockey" -i don't remember the exact quote but it was something like that-) it is kinda obvious that she will feel insecure about it. Penny looks at that list and it must not make any sense why Leonard would want to be with her, when he's been with all those intelligent women. Sorry you made me laugh. The expression is Toothless Oakie, not jockey. It was a derogatory name they called someone who migrated from Oklahoma during the great depression to the west coast. Denoting someone with no education or class, which is what educated sophisticated Priya made Penny feel like. Yeah you nailed it. Don't leave your girlfriend near Raj. He is a total hound dog since season 4. He would jump any woman with no regard to whose she is. He has absolutely no sense of loyalty to anyone. Except you're both way off, yes he had a thing for Bernadette it didn't go pass that, guys that you don't leave near your now wife do more than that so settle down. No, I disagree. Raj has no sense of loyalty. His inability to connect has nothing to do with his intent. If he could have, he would have. I don't know why were discussing this, you're trying to make something out of nothing.
  10. Penny never want's Leonard or anyone else to know how much she needs Leonard. I think you are also right that Leonard often makes here insecurities worse because he has never explained to her why he loves HER so much. When she looks at the other women Leonard has had it really does not make sense. I don't know about how much she needs Leonard that comes across as needy which she's not, for one we don't know not only why he wanted to date her much less why he loves her, or why she wants to be with him, but her actions overall in season 4 explained it and to Amy and Bernadette as well. Things were going great for the two and then Leonard messes things up. What do you mean by when she looks at the other women he's been with it doesn't make sense? We saw Penny's insecurities come out in their first attempt at dating in the second season's "The Bad Fish Paradigm" in a dialog with Sheldon: Penny: Okay, okay, you know, I get it, Leonard has no business being involved with a waitress slash actress who felt so insecure that she lied to him about finishing community college. Sheldon: Why would you lie about that? Penny: Well, he was going on and on about this college and that grad school and I didn’t want him to think I was some stupid loser. Sheldon: You thought the opposite of stupid loser was community college graduate? Just think of the other women Leonard has dated on the show for more than one episode. Also his family background vs hers. She has got to be at least puzzled why he fixates on her. The show has as one of it sub-premises Leonard as the fixer of Penny's problems usually revolving around her scumbag boyfriends. They made her almost a drunken mess in the fourth season without Leonard. If they had her drunk one more time they should have staged an intervention, at least before she got drunk and tried to sleep with Raj. She is back with Leonard and she has only drank beer with Amy since. Her character has returned to the previous Penny and the writers seem to want to make a point of that. I don't like how they've potryaed her when she's not with Leonard, like her life is only stable unless she's with Leonard, the fact she needs to be a relationship for her life to be stable, for some reason she reverts back to bad habits when she's single.
  11. That's a good comparison except for the part about Forrest being completely stupid.
  12. Not sure being a spy makes you intelligent compared to the others. One date doesn't count as dating. Her lack of education makes sense, and if they are going to continue to be together for season 6 I'd like to see this adressed not only why is Leonard with her but in love with her in the manner he is as well as why Penny wants to be with Leonard.
  13. Yes Penny and Sheldon are opposites but also have similiar things in common. No Amy isn't the same when she first came on but her and Sheldon are very alike.
  14. the "opposites attract mantra is total BS. That only works for sex. Have you ever seen a lasting couple where they are both total opposites? The thing is, when the lust fades, there must be some common ground for the relationship to function. A relationship is about companioniship and communication. Two total opposites cannot have that. Talking from experience. I didn't stay total opposites, opposites but have some interests, I've never met someone where their partner is basically the opposite gender of them.
  15. You're basically right. Here is the dialog from "The 21 Second Excitation" that set her off: Bernadette: Okay, my turn. Penny, truth or dare? Penny: Truth. Bernadette: Why are you still hanging out with Leonard so much even though you broke up with him? Amy: Oh, that’s an excellent question. For two people who claim to be no longer pair-bonded, you spend an inordinate amount of time in each other’s company. Bernadette: Yeah. Penny: Dare. Amy: I don’t believe the rules allow for an ex post facto option change. Bernadette: Yeah. Penny: Okay, look, just because we’re not seeing each other anymore doesn’t mean we can’t be friends. I mean, Leonard’s a great guy. Amy: Then, why did you terminate your relationship with him? Penny: I don’t know. He got really serious, and I wasn’t ready for it. Amy: Interesting. How will you react if, in the future, you become ready for it, and Leonard is unavailable, because another woman has realized that he is, to use your words, a great guy? Penny: You can only ask one question. Amy and Bernadette together: That one. Penny: You know what, I don’t want to play anymore. [storms out to her bedroom] Penny never want's Leonard or anyone else to know how much she needs Leonard. I think you are also right that Leonard often makes here insecurities worse because he has never explained to her why he loves HER so much. When she looks at the other women Leonard has had it really does not make sense. I don't know about how much she needs Leonard that comes across as needy which she's not, for one we don't know not only why he wanted to date her much less why he loves her, or why she wants to be with him, but her actions overall in season 4 explained it and to Amy and Bernadette as well. Things were going great for the two and then Leonard messes things up. What do you mean by when she looks at the other women he's been with it doesn't make sense?

    Sheldon

    He's not a "sissy" he has zero social skills.
  17. I thought she stormed out during truth or dare was when they asked what would she do if some other female relaizes what Penny sees, I think most of the time Leonard makes Penny's insecruities worse, as for Leonard his insecruities get in the way always wanted to be loved, not letting his proposal go and move on instead of what he did.
  18. I don't get the shamy, they're cute at times, but don't you need opposites attract not basically a female you.
  19. I don't feel Penny takes Leonard for granted, she knows he'd never cheat on her(one of the reasons she's with him) so why get jealous. I agree it wasn't a real proposal, of course he wants to marry her the way he acted in the pilot is an example, but that's totally typical of Leonard as soon as Penny talks to him about not doing what he did last time a few minutes later he does that, for a guy with his IQ he can be dumb or at least around Penny.
  20. What a dark thought indeed, this isn't a drama or soap opera, why would they kill off Howard with the season he had.
  21. Not sure what the Au contraire when your post is basically my original post said, also it kind of sad if a person has to live their lives through a fictional person. My brother in law did. Not if you zoom in. Djvang if the show to you only has jumped the shark then why do you still watch you obvisouly continue to watch for a reason. You've already tried the "If you don't absolutely love everything about the show then shut up and stop watching it" ploy. I've already explained to you that it hasn't yet reached the point (as it did with Two and a Half Men) where I'm going to stop watching it. But I'm concerned about the direction it's heading. If you can't tolerate any disagreement with your blind adoration for the show then I suggest you ignore all my posts. There's no blind adoration just because I don't agree with you, like I said you must continue to watch for a reason, you come on here after every episode and gripe, why? The direction? Huh, because the characters are in relationships, newsflash the whole series has been about that just not yo this degree. As for the "If I don't absolutely love everything about the show then shut up and stop watching it", well your comments suggest you love absolutely nothing about the show. So because I criticize the direction of the show therefore I "love absolutely nothing about the show" ? What an incredible leap of illogic. I'm done trying to deal with you. You make so many ridiculous assumptions about what people post it's hard to know where to start. I've only been on here this season. If I had been here the first four seasons you wouldn't have heard a single gripe. The show was fantastic. This season it's only been pretty good. Still better than most shows but not nearly as good as it was. If you don't see the change of direction in the show then you're the only one. A lot of people happen to like the change of direction to focus more heavily on the romantic relationships but I don't. Excuse me for daring to disagree. You obviously aren't mature enough to handle honest differences of opinion so just ignore what I write. It'll save both of us a lot of time. This will be my last response to you so save your tiresome yapping for others. Well considering I haven't seen a good comment about the show lately that's only natural, of course I see the show changing but unlike you I see it as evolving and will be even better, you keep bringing up relationships but that's been a main thing throughout the series, maybe it hurts to watch nerds not only have gfs but like ones that are on the show, because you're unhappy in your life and are lonely like raj is, but unlike raj if his mutism is cured he'd been crawling with women on his arms. Yeah you nailed it. Don't leave your girlfriend near Raj. He is a total hound dog since season 4. He would jump any woman with no regard to whose she is. He has absolutely no sense of loyalty to anyone. Except you're both way off, yes he had a thing for Bernadette it didn't go pass that, guys that you don't leave near your now wife do more than that so settle down. He tried to do something about it. When he thought Bernadette was going to dump Howard, Raj went to the Cheesecake Factory and tried to move in on her. Penny busted him out for it. He is not someone you trust with your wife or girlfriend. You're making a big deal out of nothing, there was no sexual tension, this is in the past and lets keep it there, he was going to do something is because he just like the rest thought Bernadette was going to break up with howard, it's not like he was going to make a move regardless, the one you keep trying to compare Raj to is a guy that tries to steal your gf regardless of the circumstances, Raj is a little lonely.
  22. Well the episodes that Amy was gone and were Sheldon centered, if the episodes were she and Sheldon are featured together are funny than others I don't think it's intentional I think it just happens that way.
  23. I think it has been obvious from the start that Sheldon is attracted to Amy. The way they have written Sheldon, he is germaphobic in the extreme. That is part and parcel to fearing sex, "which is messy and involves pleas to a deity or some such," as he told Penny. The messy part is what is important. Sheldon has genitals, as he pointed out, they are functional but he is afraid to use them for the same reason he ia afraid to be touched. The urge would have to overwhelm his fear for him to succumb to it. At least that is what I see as consistent with the way they write him. That sounds OK, but I have been at a cast party and am not entirely sober, so it may all be gibberish. Not gibberish at all. It seems you say the most sensible things when you're drunk. I didn't ask for your money. I didn't say anything about money what a ridicolus comment. 'I don't want to buy this' - 'I didn't ask for your money' - there you go. There I go what? We're under the impression that he doesn't have experience but we don't know that for a fact.
  24. we are not saying that... We are saying that Sheldon finds her attractive, and that's all that matters on the show, regarding this conversation! We are not saying Amy is a knockout or anything, we are saying that SHELDON FINDS HER ATTRACTIVE "what has that vixen done to me, Leonard?" Give up, he doesn't want to see the point so he won't. I'm just not buying them in the long run I didn't ask for your money. I didn't say anything about money what a ridicolus comment. He's not afraid to use his penis, he views women as a distraction towards his goal of winning the Nobel which is a little interesting since he plays video games and reads comic books, also how would Sheldon know if it was messy if he didn't have sex?
  25. You are looking at this wrong, in my opinion. They don't write like that. They had a joke in mind. His medication was going to wear off just after she looks like she wanted him. She had to do that. It was the setup for the joke. Has nothing to do with the character. It wouldn't have been funny if she said, "oh hi, it's you," and then his meds wore off. Or you're looking into it way too much, oh the writing called for her to say that.
