  1. I agree with the comments so far. I LOVED Sheldon in this episode. He's been kinda wonky since the beginning of season 5, but there were so many parts where it shows some of his old habits have stuck around and somewhat "adapted" to the new Sheldon, and it worked really well this episode. Even the bits with just the girls were well done IMO. Heck, everyone was good this episode. Raj and Stuart weren't embarrassingly pathetic (and trying to get some ladies, just like the single Wolowitz days), Leonard wasn't super clingy, Amy wasn't creepy, Bernadette wasn't Howard's mom (don't get me wro
  2. We discussed a lot of the contradictions in this thread.
  3. I'm certain I've unintentionally memorized huge chunks of episodes just by playing them in the background. I'm always on the computer doing all kinds of work, so I play TBBT for background noise. So no, I don't find it weird.
  4. Out of curiosity, do you happen to know what the original line was before they changed it?
  5. I think the people who watched the series in one straight shot have an advantage. I watched Season 1-4 in a row, and I thought the whole thing was great. Then when I started watching Season 5 one episode at a time on TV with everyone else, I felt like the show wasn't as funny as it used to be, and agreed with many of the complaints. I'm still enjoying an episode here and there, but nowhere as often as the previous seasons. I wonder if there's some kind of influence that comes with only watching one episode at a time that makes people overly critical. I'll see when I rewatch Seasons 1-5 ag
  6. I see it as an extension of the clause that said that hand-holding is ok for moral support during flu shots. It may not be a flu shot, but it's definitely moral support.
  7. Thought you guys might appreciate this one:
  8. On one hand, lots of fans see Subtext, hints, and evidence where there really isn't; So so true in this fandom. A big problem with that is that they try to place these characters into our world, our reality. Our reality is static. Theirs is dynamic. Their lives and histories don't have to be a straight solid line, or even make sense. We've already heard Bernadette say her mom ran an illegal day care center, then later said her mom worked and Bernie had to take care of her brothers and sisters. This is a contradiction. Put it into our world, it doesn't make sense. Why would Berni
  9. What about The Work Song Nanocluster, or the Dead Hooker Juxtaposition?
  10. I did not find anything wrong in showing Sheldon having an interest in flags in one episode but not before or after. Since we only see so much of them on-screen, many things about them can come up apparently out of the blue for one storyline, and it's reasonable to assume that it was there but we just didn't get to see that particular interest or activity earlier because it wasn't relevant to previous on-screen events. That itself doesn't make it out of character. For example, Sheldon went crazy over the graphene problem, but we never heard of it again. Or his love of trains, or his love of
  11. We can only say his mom loved him. The show has given us zero information that would allow us to draw a conclusion on how much Sheldon's father loved him. We know for certain that Sheldon's dad consistently was trying to teach him football and get him to watch it until he went off to college, he taught him archery, and also how to shoot so close to a raccoon that it craps itself. To me, those sound like activities a father tries to have with his son to bond together. His father was also the one to assure his wife that "you have to take your time with Sheldon." Sounds like a man who ca
  12. I agree. The rigorous taping of a nerdy podcast, as well as dressing up in that way, were quite consistent with Sheldon's character. I did initially feel that the dressing up was a bit OOC for Amy, but then we have to remember that she has changed a lot since the time Sheldon lamented 'she's not the free spirit that I am'. Here is my take, I don't know if other people who didn't like Fun with Flags will agree with me. For one thing, Sheldon has never mentioned in all 5 seasons that he has a deep interest in flags. The only time he ever mentioned a flag was when he made one for their ap
  13. I think people have forgotten that Penny's father wasn't perfect either. He wanted Penny to be a boy and treated her like one until she hit puberty. This obviously doesn't mean that he didn't love her, but seeing that Penny mentioned that he sent her a catcher's mitt for Christmas in Season 3, he still has underlying issues about it. This could be the reason for her experimenting with drugs (the bag of "potpourri"), sleeping around (it was mentioned twice that she took a pregnancy test when she was young), trying to sort out her identity through other men. As for Mary Cooper, Sheldon men
  14. It really comes down to the writers. Some know how to write the Sheldon character, some don't. The writers responsible for The Vacation Solution and The Launch Acceleration seem to have a good grasp of him and know how to evolve him in a way that doesn't shake the audience out of their suspension of disbelief. Whoever wrote the episode with Fun with Flags seemed to misinterpret him (and Amy) completely. I am looking forward to the next season with the hope that Sheldon will continue to be handled with kid gloves, and ideally move in the right direction so I can continue loving his antics a
  15. We actually did get a teeny tiny glimpse of what this could be like in the Maternal Congruence in Season 3. Sheldon and Beverly psychoanalyzing Leonard's narcissistic personality disorder over a video chat (like parents discussing a problematic child), Sheldon sending a wedding gift from both of them (like a parent taking responsibility for social convention for another family member who isn't as close to the couple), reasoning with Leonard for euthanizing his dog ("She was old and blind, Leonard. What choice did we have?" implying that he made that decision together with Beverly), etc. The
