5.15 The Friendship Contraction (Feb. 2) in Season 5 Posted February 6, 2012 I thought the show was eh, I realize living with Sheldon would be difficult but really Leonard say something before not years later the guys just accept it while penny puts her foot down when it's time to. But the idea that Sheldon can't function on his own is laughable I mean what did he do from the time he left for college, visited Germany and then moved to California, but it seems at time they're more like a chauffer than sheldon's friends, but Leonard should and the rest of the guys should stand up when Sheldon goes to far, but it'd be nice if Leonard started acting like his friend most of the time. With some exceptions this last season(5) I think the show has been pretty consistent. Leanord is so much more accepting of Sheldon for one simple reason: he grew up with a Sheldon, his mother. Germany & Europe are easier to get around without a car; there's a reason people go biking through Europe. Also, I can totally see an un-chauffered Sheldon walking the streets with his bag strapped diagnolly across his chest. You are so wrong Sheldon is nothing like leonard's mom who is cold(which is where leonard's mommy issues and me attitude comes from) where Sheldon at times just doesn't know any better or knows the difference, Sheldon had to get from point to point b some how in Germany and living in the apt. before Leonard moved in, like I'm going to believe a man with sheldon's intelligence can't figure how to get to and from work. You have got to be kidding. S&L have already had conversations re eachothers mothers, S has a relationship & a correspondence w/L's mother. Really. If you were looking for a challenge, you certainly could have chosen a better subject. Lines have also been written re S's adventures on public transit. How do you think he stays so thin & has it dawned on anyone that he has gained weight since having a reiable source of transportation! Jim Parsons is a method actor god! I am in total agreement that Jim Parsons is brilliant, but I don't like the weight gain. It looks like he's been to the gym, his arm muscles are well buff. haha As if Jim Parsons would go gymming. Might be putting weight on because he knows the show is on a downward spiral? People kep mentioning the Croc Dundee reference, I must have missed it and will watch again. This episode I think should have been number 100, it's better than the last 5.
