  1. Thanks for your insight I can accept that.

     It warms my heart that there is hope for this world yet. That more people would like to see 3 beautiful women try to make a point to their men rhetorically then want see someone make their point violently. Happy Holidays Everyone! :)


    I'm not sure making a point is the reason for watching that particular clip.  Here, let me fix it so you understand where I would be coming from:


    That more people I would like to see 3 beautiful women   :icon_eek:  try to make a point to their men rhetorically then want see someone make their point violently.


    There, how's that?   :icon_lol:


    Happy Holidays to you.   :icon_mrgreen:

  2. when you start talking too yourself like that,its a sign of going crazy. please get help. :icon_eek:

    Actually, since he quoted you in the post you are referencing, it's quite obvious that he is quoting you. You either need to see an ophthalmologist(to recognize that there was writing preceding your comment), or look at one of the fine tutorials offered on the quoting function(to understand he wasn't talking to himself).

  3.  You may not see it this way but for some people it was like a betrayal. 


    How is it a betrayal?   Because two single people tried to have sex and one of them regretted it?   And it turns out they never did have sex anyway?  

    Of those a percentage will never watch the show again,


    Man, just think, if they had that percentage, they might be hitting 19.5 million viewers a week, instead of the 19.25 they have now.   They might have even become the number 1 comedy or even made it to the number 1 non-sports show.   It's quite obvious that the Raj-Penny thing was a complete disaster.  Better cancel the show.  


    others may watch but never get over it, and the rest, like myself, will never trust the show as much as before.


    Not to be pedantic, but If you never trust the show as much as before, that means you'll never get over it.  The latter is a subset of the former.      


    It was also nice of them to bring it back up right before the winter break.  It is great they have really learned their lesson, not.


    What lesson?  Oh yeah, that the Raj-Penny thing just destroyed the show.    Yeah,  shame how the ratings have tanked since then, isn't it?

  4.    the point is after screwing raj..there is nothing diferent between penny and the whore of omaha.


    Really?  Can you point to where Penny accepted anything of monetary value from Raj, after the fact?   Can you point out exactly where the whore of Omaha regretted what had happened with Howard, before meeting his mother?   

    she has alot of work to do. if she want to be worthy of leonerd. right now all penny deserves is to be told


    Yeah, cause she was single when she had her intent, but Leonard wasn't single when he intended to have sex with Alice.  He didn't, but you've been on an intent kick, so let's bring in Leonard's intent.  


    every day what a worthless skank and whore she is, and when accepts that.she can start becoming the women she was in s1 s2.


    I notice you completely give Leonard a pass on his behavior, but not Penny.   Me, I'm willing to give them both a pass and understand they BOTH have issues to work through.   Penny has never cheated within a committed relationship and broke off one relationship when she found out the other person was cheating.   And if you want to bring up she shouldn't have done it within Raj, cause he's Leonard's friend, then where's your condemnation of Leonard for getting involved with a woman he knew his friend (Howard) was interested in.   And before you jump up and down about how it shouldn't matter cause Stephanie wasn't interested in Howard, well, Leonard shouldn't have been interested in Penny, because he had a girlfriend at the time.   It's obvious you have some problem with Penny, but damning Penny for her behavior and saying she isn't worthy of Leonard when he behaved the same, in not worse, is wildly inconsistent.  

  5. You said it right, as much as I loved the pillow talk from earlier seasons I feel like they've sort of moved on from it. I mean its not always easy to fit in and with the way the season has been going there hasn't really been a spot for it... after what we see in the next couple episodes I'm sure well see some form of it before seasons end tho


    The other part could be the fact that during season 3, there was only 5 main cast characters, now there are eight and there is less time for "Pillow Talk".  Unless it absolutely can't be accomplished somewhere else.   

  6. Your point is not completely valid.  Penny did try and have sex with Raj which was a betrayal of her own feelings.  Also, the show could still introduce cheating.  Just because they haven't gone there completely yet doesn't mean they won't.  Amy suggested it in the very last show.
    Feelings possibly, commitment no. At the time, Penny was not committed to anyone, Leonard was. And as far introducing anything, Sheldon could get introduced to drugs and become an addict. We could discuss all sorts of silly things that could happen. My point was based on previous history, much like idea of Sheldon not becoming an addict is based on previous history. Maybe you think it's possible that Raj is going to move back to India and join the Indian army, also.
  7. That is one thing that bothered me, are we seeing less intimacy between Penny and Leonard because Kaley and Johnny find it awkward? Is this the fallout when two actors get involved and we are now seeing the impact to the show?
    If that was the case, I would think it would have been awkward in season three, right after they broke up. As for not showing bedroom scenes in season five, except for the marriage proposal(and the daydream), they weren't having sex. And the lack of a scene there, makes sense as Penny trying to escape from the situation.

    As for this season, I really can't think of a scene that would have supported a bedroom scene. Date night wasn't bedroom night, after taking him to bed in 6x02 wasn't a good "talk" place. Penny needed to be seen dragging Leonard off when she meets Alex in 6x03. Game night, sex in the lab and tardis, she was texting with Cole, etc. I just think the lack of bedroom scenes for L/P is in the context of the show so far this year.

  8. He better be careful with that... Raj is still available to service her.

    Not while she's dating Leonard. While both Leonard and Penny can be indiscriminate with whom they sleep around with, both are pretty scrupulous about not fooling around when dating. Leonard came closest with April, but couldn't bring himself to finish the act. Penny has broken it off when she discovers the guy is married and basically gave up sex while carrying a torch for Leonard during the second half of S4 and into S5. L/P would have officially break up first, and even then I don't see her jumping into whatever bed is available, with Raj, just to have sex. The break up would be too traumatic for her at this point. And besides, as she admits, sex with herself is pretty great.

  9. I would think with ratings so high the actor's agents would be talking to CBS about additional seasons either right now or very soon.
    And the agents and actors are probably looking at getting a piece of the syndication money, in their next contract.
  10. Editing it because I haven't read it properly and thought you forgot to add the theater hand holding.


    I though Margo's gonna be guesting for only 3 episodes? And it's rather petty for the writers to go through six seasons then shifting to make all their fanon dreams come true, don't you think? I mean, it's not like the characters here are like in Glee where they're free to mix and match couples all they want, (hetero or homo) and have a Ryan Murphy mentality. Chuck Lorre can be a perv and use his characters to make cheap shots here and there, but it's not like he's writing high school drama.

    Jeana, did you perhaps intend for the second paragraph to be an answer to Rick? And just didn't quote him?
  11. Think whatever you want but they have made her into a girl that brings nothing but sex, good looks, and love to the relationship and in reality that is a recipe for divorce after 3 or 4 years.  I will try and pretend that their relationship is still believable too.


    Hmmmmmm, so you're saying a frigid, non-attractive woman who doesn't love me would be the recipe for my long-term marriage?  There's more to then just those three things.   Penny has tried to understand Leonard's hobbies, to the point that she can, and has, quoted different aspects of various science fiction universes.   She's returned to college to be a better partner.  She's taken an interest in Leonard's work.   The three things you mention and the three things I mentioned are about what my wife and I had at the time of our marriage(well, she had the good looks, not me), and we're still together after 30+ years.  I'd much rather love the woman who loves me and work on the rest of it.  At least you can work on the rest of it, if you have the love between you.  It's awfully hard to work on the rest of it, if there isn't any love there.    

  12. wow, that is amazing that jim took the time to take the picture and send it back.  So how do you get his address to send things to, I wonder??


    You can send them to CBS, who will than forward them.  Or Warner Brothers, or Chuck Lorre Productions.  Or, you can find Jim's management team or agent or publicist.   I would be willing to bet that he has his mail screened also.  

  13. I think you can still see the chemistry, even if they aren't romantically involved with each other.   I think it cute that among the taping reports, in the spoiler thread, are mentions of Kaley and Johnny whispering to each other in between scenes, them thanking the audiences together, etc.   Even though they may have broken up and are seeing others, they seem to have come out of their romantic relationship with a pretty strong friendship.  

  14. Oh man. Tensor is right. Ratings bump around week to week.

    Please take note now, the ratings will fall after the Feb sweeps when daylight time returns, probably back to high 4s. It happens to all shows, every one. It's not an indicator that whatever happens in the Feb sweeps was unpopular.


    Yeah, let me clarify a little bit.   I'm not saying that there can't be a drop caused by viewers tuning out.   But you just can't look at the numbers and make that arugment.  Let's use the difference between say 6x08, The 43 Peculiarity(43P); 6x10, The Fish Guts Displacement(FGD); and 6x11, The Santa Simulation(SS)(I'm skipping 6x09 for clarity).  The drop from 43P to FGD was ~ half a million viewers.  That is statistically significant, meaning that there was a drop off between the two episodes, even if you include the inherent errors in measurement.   In the case of the drop between FGD and SS, it was only ~ 160,000 viewers, less than 1% of the TBBT viewers and about 0.5% of the number of viewers watching all five networks that night.   That is well within the errors found when making these kind of measurements.    But either way, just because of a drop, doesn't mean the audience was unhappy with the episode.  As Sursonica pointed out, some larger ratings areas were preempted due to the football game.  The show might have lost ~160,000 viewers just in the Philly area Thursday night.  


    To put it in a more understandable manner, let's say you try to keep $2 worth of change in your pocket by paying or receiving change for all your purchases during the day.    You count your change every night, to see how close you came to the $2.     The number of viewers that the dropped between FGD and SS represents is a difference of about 1 penny (probably  a young, blond penny), from the previous night.     Which could have been due to simply not having the exact change, when you go to pay with your change.   

  15. huh? ratings have nothing to do with it. All of CBS shows went down on ratings the night Fish Guts aired because many CBS affiliates didn't air the episode because of football. The same happenned this week. Not to mention most of the audience doesn't even know what the episode will be about before it airs.
    Yeah, she obviously doesn't know about error bars or statistical noise. The drop in total viewers is within the range of both. Not even counting the possible loss due to preemption due to the football game.


    hA PDA? Amy can get her own, she has money... or am I missing something?

    Public Display of Affection. Shamy's held hands on a darkened street with no one else around and in a darkened theatre. And a couple of kisses, only one was witnessed by someone else(Penny in The Shiny Trinket Maneuver).

  16. And how is that different from being personally attacked for criticizing the show

    Well, there is a difference between liking the show and criticizing the show. And if someone was just criticizing the show, I don't think there would be much of a problem. But being unnecessarily degrading and/or insulting to the show, over and over again, to the point of it looking as if that is your only purpose, well, if you can't see the difference, it goes to your lack of perspicacity.
