  1. I think it would be better, as a cliffhanger, with Leonard and Penny drinking coffee with sly grins on their faces...
  2. I'm willing to bet that negotiations are ongoing at this time for at least two, probably three years. It would be plain silly to wait until next year before starting negotiations. Unless the cast does a "Friends", there are 7 different negotiations that will have to be done and waiting until next year, to start, could lead to a short time to get it done. I'm thinking that Kevin Sussman, who may be on the production side of possibly two new shows, will not be a problem, even with his current status as a regular.
  3. Have you pegged wrong? Well, let's look at your comments: Let's see, she's also a mother and she left academia to return to acting because acting allowed her to spend more time with her children. Is wanting to spend more time with your children wasting your time? Seem's like you think so. Either that or you should have known the entire story before making such a comment. Those people have my respect also, that doesn't mean I think I'm more important than others, or belittle others who make a choice based on their wanting to spend more time with their children. As for autographs, I'd rather have one from someone who doesn't think so much of their own self importance.
  4. I found this rather interesting, so I thought I'd share. We've gotten pretty used to seeing the show have over 16-17 million viewers with a mid 5 number for the 18-49 demographic. So, this past week's numbers of 12 million with a 3.3 demo doesn't really look all that impressive. However, the following is a list of shows during the last week of new shows (Dec 10-16) that beat either the total viewers or demo attained by this weeks (shown on 12/27) repeat: Big Bang Theory 12.0 3.3 The Voice (Monday) 12.3 3.8 Two Broke Girls (9 PM) 3.7 Total viewers were below 12 Million Two Broke Girls (9:30 PM) 3.8 Total viewers were below 12 Million NCIS 17.5 Demo was below 3.3 NCIS LA 15.1 Demo was below 3.3 The Voice (Tuesday) 3.6 Total viewers were below 12 Million Criminal Minds 12.0 Demo was below 3.3 Modern Family 4.2 Total viewers were below 12 Million Big Bang Theory 16.7 5.4 Two and a Half Men 13.3 4.1 (If you are puzzled as to why there could be a lot of viewers, but the show didn't beat TBBT demo, think of it as there were a lot of people who were older than 49 watching the show. If a show beat a demo number, but didn't have more viewers, think of it as the number of 18-49 viewers was larger. It's not quite that simple, but it will help you decipher the numbers if you think of it that way.) That's it. 10 first run shows, out of approximately 70 for the week (not all shows that week were first run) that beat one or the other number of a REPEAT of the TBBT. Only three shows could beat both numbers, and one of those was a new TBBT and another had TBBT for a lead in. The other networks would love to have those repeat numbers for their first run shows. As a matter of fact, there were a couple of nights, on a couple of networks, where TBBT repeat had more viewers than the entire night on another network. And during the above week, CBS ran a repeat of TBBT on Monday night (out of it's normal time slot), getting 10 million viewers with a 3.0 demo. Those numbers were an increase from 6.2 Million viewers and a demo of 2.2 over the previous week when a repeat of 2 Broke Girls ran (whose numbers were better than most other first run shows). There are a couple of caveats here. One, Football (American football for our international posters) is almost double TBBT in the demo and almost 10 million viewers larger. For instance, for the week in question, CBS had the late game, which normally overruns into primetime. The rating for that was 26.5 Million viewers with a 9.2 demo. This helps whatever network on the nights it has a NFL overrun. As an example, 60 Minutes can have its viewers increase by up to 10 million and it's demo increase by 3 points, if football runs late and is a direct lead in to 60 minutes.
  5. Yeah, I'm not sure what the problem there is either. Back in the dark ages (I am a bit older than many of you), right after my then girlfriend and I got back together, we were in a relationship, cared about each other rather deeply, were in our early mid 20s, and, yeah, we had a lot of sex. That lasted for quite a few years for us, so even considering Leonard is supposed to be in his early thirties, lots of sex can be the norm. Even up to the point where it appears to be the only basis for the relationship.
  6. That's a good thing, and I would look pretty much the same. If I shaved the beard. Couldn't grow one in high school, or college for that matter, or up until my mid 30s.
  7. When you start talking to yourself like that, it's a sign of going crazy. Please get some help.
  8. 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 try to make a point to their men rhetorically then want see someone make their point violently. There, how's that? Happy Holidays to you.

  10. 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).
  11. You can't say that, if you do it means we agree there. What's up with that?
  12. 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? 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. 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. 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?
  13. 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? 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. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Heheheheheh, I get that sentiment a lot at the science forum I frequent. Falsification alá Popper, yeah, that's the ticket.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. My point is still valid. And dang-nab-it, nightlight those things. I can be sarcasm/joke impaired without vocal inflection.
  19. 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.
  20. He called him by his first name, Wyatt. Although, in an earlier episode, Penny said that her mother called her father Bob.
  21. And the agents and actors are probably looking at getting a piece of the syndication money, in their next contract.
  22. Jeana, did you perhaps intend for the second paragraph to be an answer to Rick? And just didn't quote him?
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
