  1. Yeah, always liked BH. Getting CarolB would be HUGE!!!!
  2. Yeah, Bernie has gone psycho on Howard and Amy, Raj, Penny. I think the writers are trying to get Bernie dialed in because the sweet & sour version of Bernie is funnier, whereas the pure sugar & spice version of her is boring.
  3. LOL, I just responded to you in the other thread. Yeah, It was right for Lucy to be excluded.
  4. Yeah, you're right about Lucy. I just thought Penny's sneakers looked like same one Leonard wears, and figured they were going to point it out for kicks.
  5. Ditto. Although the humour level low, it was appropriate for the episode. Personally, I didn't mind the change and think these type of meatier episodes is a good thing. RE..the vibrator joke didn't bother me at all. It was funny.
  6. Way better than the last one. I really enjoyed the flow of a single storyline and a more serious plot. There was enough humor to prevent it from crossing into melodrama land. The Howard closure ending was brilliant. I got a sense the writers and cast enjoyed doing something a bit deeper and meaning full for a change. Howard's underrated drama skills really stood out. I'm usually not a big fan of H&B, but I actually enjoyed them this time around. Although Sheldon as a child, and doing an advanced knowledge bit with a "blonde monkey" Penny follow up wasn't new, it worked well. Overall, it was a very good "feel good" episode. Misc. thoughts... I'm was surprised to not see Lucy, and thought they dropped the ball with Penny's sneakers. After Bernie said Howard wore her pants, I was expecting Penny to say something like "Yeah, I'm wearing Leonard's shoes".
  7. Was there a meaning behind the girls as a princess? And, why it triggered Leonard and Howard horny button?
  8. Not sure about that one. I think Lenny and Shamy are a lock because L,P,S are untouchables and A was constructed for S. B, Lucy or whoever are paired with H and R should be up for grabs. If it works, great...if not kill it and move on.
  9. I'm game for doing something with Raj, but i don't want to see some sort cutesy relationship with Lucy. The writers are already doing, and IMO are struggling to do the cutesy thing with H&B. They need to do something different with Raj and Lucy or don't do it all.
  10. Easily the weakest episode of the year. The scenes where Penny is sitting on the bench and the kids in the classroom bored out of their minds sums up this episode for me. The only parts that I found remotely funny was Sheldons' googling, Leonards' rapping, and Howard's horse bits. The three story lines were weak and disjointed. Girls... A&B looked nice in costume. Evil Bernie is a step in the right direction. Penny "i'm a slut" jokes - again and 3x times, booooring. Guys...Leonard "my mommy didn't love me" again...zzzzzzzzzz. Raj and Lucy...the texting idea was neat at first, but turned into a snooze fest.
  11. If Amy came across as weak or depressed i would surely feel bad. But, I'm not getting that vibe. (Sortof goes back to my comments in the doormat thread). I also can't overlook Amy is some sort top dog brain scientist, and the gut feeling that she's trying to alter Sheldon behavior in a similar way to her smoking monkeys. The results of her experiments, good or bad are helping her plan next steps. Come hell or high water, she's going to marry Sheldon in 4 years. Sheldon will likely be kicking and screaming at the alter, but loving it.
  12. I like the idea of Sheldon being himself to everyone else but Amy and feel that's where the writers are heading. I think the decision to go at a slower pace is working out just fine. A more immediate or sudden change in Sheldon behavior would feel right. Having Sheldon resist change ( being dragged kicking and screaming, being an ass) is very much in line with how Sheldon is. I don't see it hurting the character and doing so, makes the actual change deeper and more meaningful. At this point, Amy may be getting the short end of the stick, but she's gaining ground. I don't feel bad or sympathetic for her. If anything she seems to be getting stronger and more determined not weaker. Plus it let's the writer's do some sort of "every trick in the book" run. Overall, I think they've done Shamy well.
  13. I think they should let the Penny rebuild sink in and stabalize Lenny a bit more. Getting Penny to the point where she can bring more to the table, before an engagement would be nice. They've just started to rejuvenate her acting career, so that would be good next step. Plus, it would be really cool to get the Priceline commercials into the show somehow.

    That's awesome news. Had enough of the Lenny breakups, psycho drama, and seeing them dragged through the mud. I don't know if it's the writers or actors themselves, but Lenny can't fight. The big ones esp. are neither funny or entertaining. Let Shamy handle the drama and fight scenes. They're way better at doing mad and funny at the same time.

    Great post. I have similar feelings. Using your coffee analogy, I would put S1-3 in the connoisseur, acquired taste class, S4-5 was like on or below par everyday coffee. S6 is above (maybe the best) everyday coffee out there. As a latecomer to show, what drove them to change? Were the ratings so poor that the show could've been canceled?
  16. I enjoyed this episode alot. It provided the romance theme timeout that I was hoping for, and although it didn't have the thunderous high notes of the past couple of episodes, I thought it was great from start to finish. Raj getting some screen time and a girl was nice. Lucy came across as nervous sweet, cute and adorkable, but nothing too great or bad. Raj was pretty good throughout. High points were the lobster, tidy whities, and running down the street scenes. Raj must of found Penny's old UGGs. I didn't want to see Raj without pants on, again, but it played well with Howard. Howard sticking up for and worrying about his bromance with Raj was nicely done. The one on one scene in Raj's apartment, reminded me how great H&R are together, and how they were before Bernie. Bernie was mostly window dressing, but I chuckled at the kinda ripe joke. I love Shenny scenes, so providing not one, but three of them in one episode was awesome and as usual they were great. Penny's facial while watching Sheldon open up and spreading his legs open / telling Penny to do the same was hysterical. And Penny opening the door before Sheldon did his knocking thing was special. Quite touching how Penny knew right of the bat how Sheldon wasn't quite right and offered to go back inside. Amy rocked, I can watch her monkey routines all day long. Penny's play was nicely done; her lines were quite symbolic. A,S, and L complimenting Penny acting skills and Leonard looking so proud and happy was a nice touch. The writer's made a great decision to use an acting class play to rejuvenate Penny's acting career. Something bigger (at this point) wouldn't be believable.
  17. Hope so, just adorable or adorkable ain't gonna fly now. I think Bernie is best when she's lit up, it nice to see her like that in the last several episodes.
  18. I'm kinda bummed. You guys got me all riled up and hoping Lucy would turn into somesort of crazy possessed demon. Instead, Lucy came across as nervous, gentle and caring enough to go back to apologize to Raj. Overall, I thought she was ok, and didn't notice anything really great or bad. I'm going to need more to form a decent opinion of her and Jucy.
  19. I glad they took a Lenny and Shamy timeout. It was great, but I needed a change a pace. Not that I want them together as a couple or anything, but my favorite parts of the show are the Shenny one on one scenes. Providing not one, but three scenes of them in one episode was awesome and as usual they were great. Penny watching Sheldon open up and spreading his legs open / telling Penny to do the same was hysterical. And Penny opening the door before Sheldon did his knocking thing was special. Quite touching how Penny knew right of the bat and offered to go back inside. Big time. I really thought they choose those lines for that reason. A,S, and L complimenting Penny acting skills was a nice touch. Leonard looked so proud and happy. I also think they made a great decision to use an acting class play to rejuvenate Penny's acting career. Something big wouldn't be believable at this point.
  20. Welcome aboard. I too was a late comer and saw random episodes out of sync. Thx to the DVD's and some long business flights, things made sense.
  21. That's a good one. Maybe an S&M dominatrix thing...whips and chains with Raj in the leather cat women outfit again.
  22. LOL, i was thinking the same thing. It would be great if she did some sort Jekyll and Hyde, or somesort crazy nervous twitch / Tourettes syndrome thing. Don't know anything about her, but she appears to be in the next couple of episodes. I think Raj with girl would be a great change. That Raj & Stuart bromance thing imo was a bust from the start, and got less appealing - borderline repulsive.
  23. I know it is a sitcom but wouldn't that have broken any normal girl's heart hearing him confess to planning to fake his way through an evening together? Yup, don't know a normal girl that wouldn't have been heart broken or at the very pissed off. BUT, Amy and Sheldon are fictional characters in sitcom who are supposedly so individually unique and dysfunctional that they are only compatible with each other. The point of the whole thread is that Amy's tolerance level is too high which kind of makes her a doormat. I think what you and others see when Amy gives in to Sheldon / Amy being a doormat, maybe part of a tactical maneuver. Irrc, Amy has outsmarted Sheldon several times, so she's quite smart and cunning. As I said above, Amy concedes in the situations or battles that she believes she can’t win or are not worth fighting, yet fights in the ones where she believes she can win or needs to be fought (I gave examples above)…in hopes of winning the war. It’s akin to sacrificing a pawn in chess and perhaps part of the 4 year plan. FWIW, had you posed the same question about Leonard before S6, I would have agreed with you 100%. What did she achieve by allowing Sheldon to stay in his comfort zone? Others are better suited to come up with “what’s in for Amy “answers, but off the top of my head…a companion that get’s her, her first boyfriend, and a potential husband.
  24. I'm guessing Jim at ~ 6.1, Kaley ~ 5.6, JG ~ 5.5
