  1. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Ok. We differ. My future son-in-law went on his own and we were told by Snapchat. And I was pleased. Many paths up the mountain. But did you even think about messin' with him? Hehe. I am still expecting the pig in exchange - because she's worth it. He knows that. Apparently It's coming in 350g packets of bacon over my lifetime

    Just as well Dad miraculously was contactable for this. I always thought her dad was absent. I'd never noticed him come up before. But ok - though for my part I would be cranky for the question. It's a tradition from the days of women as chattels, I suspect.

    Sidebar: Can I ask if that is really still a thing? Like do any dads expect it? Because hey, two adults etc. - no one here is sixteen... or property.

    I've now got the branding in my head as the Old Sheldon Show vs the Young Sheldon Show. Not that I'll ever see the latter. Because... why?
  5. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Oz won't be seeing the rest of s10 (10.19 onwards) until 5 Sep 17. The s10 rights holder can't confirm they have bought s11. So no idea when season 11 will be broadcast in Australia. The constant cycle of reruns has had an impact on the value of the new episodes in this market, it seems. I'm not sure if it means the network is hoarding the unseen episodes for their value or that they don't think they are a big draw card.

    I hope Leonard had a holiday with his wife and away from Sheldon and comes back refreshed after summer. Maybe they took a road trip in a convertible or something. That'd be nice to hear about, even if they didn't show it. Opportunities for Leonard to enjoy Penny's interest in alfresco events. Let's hear about them enjoying being married.

    Fair dinkum, yes! And who hasn't hoped for this distraction at work. Beefy? lol. Not what I'd think of when considering the svelte Mrs H and the idea of wrestling. Hehe. Mr H, however... well, he's just happily married and it shows . And the writers neglect to show us that happiness, because they like to play in the drama. But if they were not happy they'd not have endured the drongo now across the hall and still stayed together. Hmmm. It's a little weird that they keep so close to him. It's almost like there was some kind of financial incentive, as in say "Survivor" or one of those Japanese game shows where they torture the participants. Maybe this isn't a documentary after all...

    I appreciate the upside view. It's entirely possible that the actor was able to leverage the writers to modify the treatment of his character. They started out so promisingly with the L/P premise - so much charm and so many good intentions. Leonard looked out for Penny and she looked out for him. She even looked after the indispensable and increasingly intrusive third wheel. It was adorable. Seeing as they literally have nothing to lose going on to the shows conclusion, maybe they can rekindle that positive view of the two, rather than use them to contrast negatively against Sheldon's awesome greatness. I hope at least they make Sheldon pay for his own wi-fi - given that the router lives with Leonard and there is no practical reason now for the two separate households to share billing. I look forward to Penny changing that password and flipping that joke.

    This IS a dark thread... Sheldon as donor. Talk about "the horror"! (I'm sure they've thought about in the writer's room)

    They might, but they tend to work with what they have. It's a very hermetic show.
  11. [Spoilers] The "Dark" Lenny Thread: Season 11

    I was just jolted by a thought about the consequences of the spinoff for Leonard. Don't expect him to get any bonus points going forward, because they have to cross-promote. Sheldon is locked in as a winner because why would you watch the trailing prequel if it was about a loser? They have to elevate Sheldon. Because it's hard to make Sheldon look better and still preserve his signature traits, they will likely make others look worse This might mean Leonard and Penny get the rough end of the pineapple more often. (At least even though they may be made to look look worse, as a couple they still look great).
  12. [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    G'day folks. Just wanted to say cheers. Wondering about S11 - hoping to be delighted. No idea when S11 will start in Oz. We aren't yet clear of S10. Last show was 10.18. Regardless how much TPTB mess them around, I still think Leonard & Penny are lucky to have each other. Looking forward to some joy ahead - and some good laughs! It's totally possible. Fingers crossed. Heheh

    Rugby goes great too? Sailing as well? And you had Rachel Hunter? I'd emigrate but then I'd miss the novelty of eps 10.19 to 10.24. Heheh. But s11 will be better. Could it be worse? Maybe Raj will do his sleepover thing yet again after Penny sculls one too many goon-bags. Or Leonard has to turn tricks on street corners for research funding? Meanwhile Sheldon transmutes straw into gold - In his pants? Much to anticipate. I'm agog.
  14. [Spoilers] The "Dark" Lenny Thread: Season 11

    Yeah. The writers are pushing the marital discord cliche unnecessarily. It's like they have divided the show into four market segments to reflect an imagined life cycle. Single aspirants (Raj, maybe Stuart), new lovers (Shamy), happy marriage (Howardette), unhappy marriage (L/P). I can just picture the Powerpoint slide. Shame they slipped L/P right past the "happy marriage" bit. Personally, having been so affected by L/P's struggle to get together, I am really pissed off that the writers depict so little reward for them for making the effort at the outset. Sheldon, in contrast, did bugger all, and he gets his own house, a compliant partner and a captive pair of patsies across the hall to torment as he wishes (nothing unhealthy there). Huzzah! (And my marriage is scooting along too fast - 27 years this Bastille Day - and not a drag at all) PS good idea here @veejay. Saves me raining on the L/P ship (maybe I'm a bitter jilted shipper? There must be a word, besides maybe um "Richard") PPS Oz still isn't done with S10. Up to 10.18. More beatings to come, apparently.
  15. [Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10

    Just to wind up... when I first came here and discovered the unblushing adoration of fictional characters I initially thought "shipping" was a diminutive of "worshipping". True story. That said, if they ever give Leonard & Penny a fair shake without having the gurning clown stab at their character, competence and charity, I'd consider lighting a candle... or at least some incense, and maybe pouring out some libations of an alcoholic nature. And I'm nothing if not capable of repeating the same activity and expecting a different outcome. So.... Onwards, to the impending "joys" of S11, I guess.
