    @brilliantfool Did I see “cake decision” in your TR? Sheldon should be wary of that one. It looks easy, but... ”ITS A TRAP!” (doubleplusgood effort btw)
  2. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    @brilliantfool, thanks for the update. I’m glad Leonard and Penny are still in the show and are happy. Sounds like Shamy are still there too That’s not surprising. They’re popular. Go Howard! Raj can go too. It’s all fine.

    Maybe they caucused with each other and concurred that social conventions are stupid so they will just live on love in a common-law or defacto relationship, then have a stress free party to celebrate and next quietly just get on with things. It’s only logical. But what are the odds. No laughs in that, at all. Maximum carnage is more likely. No idea what will happen but at least they have a near zero chance of Sheldon being outside the event throwing baby tantrums at the couple getting married. Unless it’s Bert and Amy, somehow. Or Fisal drops by. (these are all edge cases and unlikely - though hopefully someone cooks the rice befor it’s thrown. Lucky for A/S it’s Bernie whose vengeful, not L&P - they have grounds for vengeance but, oddly, memories like goldfish)

    I just hope the video wasn’t taken while they were inside Pennys flat while she was sleeping. It’s topical, but I really am wishing that the video is positive for them.

    She freaked over a tiara!!!!!!. Veil and big dress will huge-er-er, surely. He will be much happier in the long run if he doesn’t mess up her *cough* their day. He should hand over the reins, unless, against canon, he suddenly has a big investment in the tradition. But what are the chances. Where’s the fun in that. Onwards Sheldon, make it about you!

    Seriously, this man would’ve eloped. But I completely did what my wife wanted. I did get to pick the cake. Had two choices. Got that part wrong, I found out years later. Glad I had nothing to do with the rest of the planning except agree. But I wholeheartedly supported her choices. Like Sheldon promised he would. I consider it his gift to her. A nice thing. Because he just wants to be married. No so much the hoopla - though maybe I’m just projecting. edit: look at me, sticking up for Sheldon. Wow. Hehe
  7. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    For me, this was one case (the only case?) where Sheldon realised his own actions were harmful to himself. Usually he is not at all aware. And he understood that he was not all-knowing. Not sure if it’s just an aberration. Because being a dick (per Bernadette just this season) is his thing. But I did feel his pain as genuine. And that never happens. So, a notable moment, for me.
  8. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Digression... I just watched Sheldon humbly hand over control of the wedding planning. Nice moment. At last, humility. Wow.
  9. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Yes. Happy Birthday... of course (*cough, knew that cough*) ...and as pointed by someone else, Raj wasn’t there... so, spooky too. Almost as spooky as the photo of from Leonard’s elevator fantasy.
  10. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Glad to hear about the linens. Still thinking this is evidence the length of the run is greater than they expected and they are s t r e c h i n g it out until something actually breaks - but no refits. Not sure we’d ever see a post Shamy wedding life - or at least not soon or for long. Unless married Shamy trapped next to Leonard and Penny is in any way viable. How contorted would that be. There is no reason for Leonard and Penny not having already moved. The two married couples adjacent would be patently a contrivance. So much the audience tolerates *sigh*
  11. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Absolutely true. It makes absolutely no difference to how they tell the stories. And hey, it’s only a temporary arrangement. It does demonstrate that the show has, remarkably, run past its design life. Good for them. Not so much fun for the Nostalgics. But there would be no payback for a small tweak like that and the big tweak is Young Sheldon. It only irks a tiny, tiny small part of the audience. Totally inconsequential ... but with access to forums. edit: but in the context of the in-show world Amy and Sheldon are maybe cheapskates. Not even changing the bed? Where’s the commitment?
  12. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Burn it, gracefully retire it to the kerb for recycling or put it in Howard’s garage. Anything but letting it sit there... taunting. Seriously, why can’t Sheldon and Amy have their own stuff. How cheap are they?
  13. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Well, when I examine the totality of the statements made by Sheldon, my overall assessment is that he is generally less credible than those around him. His whackiness is the basis of the show. It’s not like his schtick is about speaking truth to power. To some degree his role is to say those things said by drunk uncles at family gatherings - to get a laugh in the context of the show. As to prophetic powers - who knows. But Sheldon’s opinions - which is what he was expressing at the time - are generally and by design completely whack. As evidence I refer you to.... the show. Pick any episode for examples. Edit: carve out physics. That’s not opinion.
  14. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    On the basis of the L/P love story as earlier presented, I feel latterly that I have been the subject of a bait and switch con. Heheh. And Shamy isn’t a substitute. On the evidence the Howard & Bernie relationship seems to me to be most authentic at the moment. Looking forward (he says wryly) to Shert.
  15. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    That’s why it kills me that Leonard and Penny never kiss hello. Or goodnight. Or good morning. Or “hey, I made you toast, you’re welcome “. Unless I overlooked those bits.
