  1. Season 5, Episode 12: The Shiny Trinket Maneuver Amy: Sounds like you hit the ground running. I have a bit of good news myself. My most recent paper on how a cooperative long-term potentiation can map memory sequences in dendritic branches made the cover of Neuron. Sheldon: Ooh! Speaking of good news, somebody just hit 100 Twitter followers. Amy: That’s nice. Anyway, I’ve been dreaming of this day for a long time. Sheldon: Yeah, me, too. Triple digits, I’m not gonna lie, feels pretty good. Amy: Sheldon, I’m the sole author on a paper being published in a distinguished journal that may change the course of my field. Sheldon: Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. Ooh, 101! Air’s getting a bit thin up here. Penny: So, are we ready to order? Amy: Give me a minute. I’m gonna go wash up. Sheldon: Well, that’s odd. We both washed up when we came in. It’s probably a euphemism for urination. Penny: Sheldon, what is wrong with you? Sheldon: Not much. Although, I can be faulted for being overly fond of koala bears. I don’t know what it is, when they smart munching on eucalyptus, I just melt inside. Penny: Okay, Amy just told you some exciting news, and you acted like it was no big deal. Sheldon: Oh, I see why you’re confused. No, her news sounded important, but what you’re forgetting is, it was an achievement in the field of biology. That’s all about yucky, squishy things. Penny: Honey, she’s upset. You’re her boyfriend. You have to at least try to be excited by the things she’s excited by. Sheldon: What if they simply don’t excite me? Penny: Well, just smile and think about koalas. Sheldon: She’d see right through that. We go to the zoo all the time. She knows my koala face. And for future reference, it’s this.
  2. Thanks for the information. That fuse panel has been the topic of discussion on here more than a few times. Appreciate you filling in some details.

    Sheldon's Kids

    There is no reason to assume that Sheldon's relationship agreements would necessarily preclude the possibility for his children to have fun, friendships, or a wide variety of experiences. Sheldon, on TBBT and YS, has a lot of fun doing many different things. As much as his quirkiness permits he has varying types of experiences. Leonard, who signed the roommate agreement, has had many fun times with, and apart from, Sheldon. Amy signed the relationship agreement, (largely written to benefit Sheldon), and no one can logically argue that her life is devoid of fun, adventure, and diverse opportunities for new experiences.
  4. YS has not removed all of Sheldon's childhood memories. He still has no real friends. Star Trek and Professor Proton are in tact. MeeMaw is a mainstay and, for the most part, ally upon whom he can rely. His mother is still devoutly religious and his father is not. He is considered an oddball by everyone outside his family. What they have removed, or choose not to show, are the negative traits Sheldon attributed to his father, and they combative nature of his parent marriage. On YS his parents are two radically different people, but they do their best for their children and for one another. There hasn't really been any on-screen bullying of Sheldon by anyone, though the JP narrative still references such happenings.
  5. There are marked differences between the memories of Sheldon and his mother and the way their past is played out on YS. The main point I have noticed is that George Cooper is actually nothing like the man TBBT made him out to be. There has also been no mistreatment of Sheldon by either Missy or Georgie. I have, however, found YS to be an enjoyable program. It is wholly different from TBBT and it comes across as a traditional family centered sitcom. It is also not nearly as Sheldon centered as TBBT and that serves the show well. There was never any doubt that Sheldon's childhood would have to be shown differently on YS. The 'hell' Sheldon remembered would have made for unwatchable television.
  6. Sheldon's comments, and a plethora of other things, are rife with inconsistencies. This is one of the persistent bugaboos of TBBT. Facts, timelines, spoken comments, and canon never seemed to be particularly important to the writers and producers. They produced some great episodes but their apparent 'one off' mentality caused a lot of inconsistencies.

  9. Happy Birthday @chucky! Hope you have a wonderful day!
  10. Considering the events that would follow over the course of the next twelve seasons I would name the pilot: "The Transformation Genesis".
  11. "If the owner of this video has granted you access, please sign in.", Won't play. Displays the above message.
  12. While a YP show would certainly fit in with most content currently aired, the question is, "Do TBBT viewers want to see Penny depicted as an academically under achieving, alcohol indulging, sexually promiscuous, teenage bully?" That is what TBBT established as Penny's backstory. The fact is, the writers and producers of YS have taken great liberties in re-shaping the YS childhood into palatable television material. Spinning off any more Y-TBBT child shows would require similar efforts.
  13. Welcome to the forums. Sadly, you've missed the best of the site. Things began winding down after the finale aired and have really dwindled to almost nothing at this point. Still, I hope you enjoy the forum.
  14. Good point. Something a native Texan would catch, but the general perception of non-Texans is that the state consists of arid landscapes, mesquite trees and horned frogs. Throw in a few tumbleweeds, jackrabbits and some cattle and there isn't anything else to add. Geography aside, the cow in the opening is a dairy cow. Not exactly a Texas staple. Guess they don't want the family confronting a typically bad tempered longhorn...
  15. A question that has been debated at length. Originally, Sheldon was roommate to Leonard and most of what Leonard did for him was stipulated in the Roommate Agreement. Howard and Raj got sucked in because they were friends with Leonard. As to why they would continue to interact/socialize with him there are any number of reasons. They all shared multiple common interests. He possessed abilities that they found useful at times, e.g., he served as the group's institutional memory. At various times they delighted in exploiting his character traits and tormented him. They delighted in seeing others suffering his idiosyncrasies. The Sheldon spotlight could be entertaining to those not caught in its focus. These characters were complicated people. No doubt about that. Why would they remain friends with, and tolerate, Sheldon? Tough question, but it can be asked about most of them. Howard (1.0) was creepy and frequently disturbing. Raj was, at times, much worse in many ways than Sheldon. Amy could be as creepy as Howard and as needy as Leonard. Bernadette could be frighteningly mean. Penny was often morally ambiguous, a bully, and a manipulative moocher. Leonard certainly had issues but was mostly the stable nucleus of an unstable group. None of them was perfect, but together they created some magical moments. For us as viewers and in their make believe world.
  16. Never seen any Dr. Who, but I thought I'd post this to provide some context: The Daleks are a fictional extraterrestrial race of mutants in the British science fiction television series Doctor Who, created by the megalomaniacal scientist Davros of the planet Skaro to be an emotionless "master race" bent on universal conquest and domination, utterly without pity, compassion or remorse. -Sounds like a creature Sheldon would want to emulate rather than fight.- I am wondering if they're not investing a lot of money in a dead horse. I don't have any data to rely upon but I wonder if any other show has ever gotten so much new content paired with syndication exposure as TBBT. Between CBS (and affiliates) and TBS (in the U.S.) there is scarcely an evening that doesn't offer multiple episodes of TBBT. Now that there are no new episodes forthcoming I wonder if there's going to be a sustainable audience to cover such an investment. (My skepticism could be somewhat based upon my own, on-going, indifference to watching TBBT since the finale aired.)
  17. Kudos to Bath Item. The 'Nimoy napkin' scene is probably my all-time favorite TBBT moment. I voted for Adhesive Duck because of the episode long Sheldon/Penny dynamic, but I can't argue with how the voting turned out.
