  1. Well it's safe to say I'm glad that date wasn't official ;). Just Jane being one step ahead as usual! It's quite cool to see Lisbon and the other FBI lady (ughh her name will stick in my brain eventually) get along, even though I think a lot of it is due to their mutual taste in men, haha. I hope there isn't too much tension between them in the future but I have a feeling there might be :(. I did rather enjoy this episode. I'm enjoying the more laid-back and slightly more fun approach they're taking. I guess it's not for everyone but I like it :)

  2. Trust me, only seeing a few tiny snippets of a show and going onto a forum for it and ranting about how bad it is just asking to get your butt kicked online. Of course everyone is going to know a hell of a lot more than you (I mean it's a fan forum for pete's sake) and will find your arguments completely mis-informed and ridiculous. I suggest you watch the whole series first before you decide how unrealistic it is and if you still find it so, at least your argument will have a little more substance and you'll actually be able to have a proper debate without people thinking you're an idiot.

     

    Also, a man thinking he can define the entire female sexuality in one sentence (especially at a level as simplistic and shallow as this) is a tad sexist. I'm sorry that your experience with women has not been a very varied one and it has meant you haven't come across the types of ladies that would be attracted to these guys.

     

    I also congratulate you for your stunning good looks and how they have helped you put your feet into the shoes of these fine gentlemen (sarcasm).

  3.  (My thoughts sorta copied from the other thread with less shamy ;) ) I actually rather enjoyed it, the writers took a gamble here so I can see why there would be mixed reactions. I thought shamy was fine and the exasperation didn't drag on like I thought it would. I was worried that this episode would imply that Amy no longer finds Sheldon funny, but it was the opposite I think. She thinks he doesn't need a theory of comedy when he can be funny without over-thinking it.

     

    I did, however, find it harder to laugh because of the overall heaviness between lenny. I think that's the most drama I've ever seen in an episode, not that it was a bad thing, most comedies have loads more drama than TBBT. It was interesting to watch, and yeah the Sheldon/Leonard bit at the end was really nice. I think Sheldon did feel kinda bad for the "kick me" sign so he took it off even though he could have easily denied it and walked off. It felt so weird having a long segment without any laughter from the audience (well long by our standards anyway) and in the end it all comes down to personal taste whether people thought it was good-weird or bad-weird. I thought it was good-weird though  :)

  4. Okay, just finished it and I think I agree with koops on this one, I actually kinda liked it. I thought the Amy being exasperated with Sheldon thing would drag on but it didn't. I liked Amy helping Sheldon out with not feeling uncomfortable about the NCIS thing and Sheldon yelling "BRAIN LESIONS!" In the middle of Amy's scientific speech was funny. That pants dropping and him shuffling to his board was cute. I thought this episode would imply that Amy no longer found Sheldon funny but I actually thought it was the opposite. All Amy needs is for Sheldon to just be himself and do something without over-thinking it. he doesn't need a theory, he can be funny all by himself :p. Going through the dictionary on the couch was quite lighthearted, I thought Amy would look SUPER bored and annoyed but it wasn't that bad, it was just them being together in their weird ways.

  5. Thanks Tensor, I thought she'd probably keep Cuoco. I Just remembered Courtney Cox having her name changed to Courtney Cox Arquette in the opening credits of friends after getting married and wondered if something similar might happen.

  6. They look so cute! Congratulations to them. Here's to a long and happy marriage!

     

    Does the fact that it says "the sweetings" mean she's changed her second name? Or is she keeping Cuoco?

  7. I'm glad love spell is up there, definitely one of the best. I'm so annoyed I was out when they aired it on E4! I wanted to see my closet shipper dad's reaction :( and I can definitely see why adhesive duck is there. Jim's "Sheldons here." was absolutely classic. I'm surprised the Leonard Nimoy napkin one wasn't voted though. I thought everyone loved that one, lol.

  8. I guess the fact that English isn't my native language comes out here, I never knew there was a difference between ow and oh ....

     

    Sorry if this has lead to some misunderstandings.

     

    Yeah, in English we only use "ow" for when we get hurt :p. So you probably meant "oh" or something similar to that. It's no worry though, your English skills are far better than mine at every other language ;)

  9. You might be thinking that Sheldon (Jim Parsons) will finally come out of the closet.

     

     Oh wow, spot on observation there. Whoever didn't think this would happen has clearly been watching a different show... ;)

     

    Though I'm no sure why it's now that all the spoiler sites seem to be catching on to our forum. I hope it doesn't get to the point where the producers try to do something about it...  :unsure:

  10.  I was just commenting on the fact that people like you seem to think the writers brought on Amy purely to satisfy the girly fantasy dream, when there were actually a lot of other good reasons too. I'm sure it's not your preference though, I guess if the show went the way you wanted, it may have only lasted another season of Sheldon "goodness" before it got ridiculous. Well I suppose it would have been okay it it went out on a high...lol. 

  11. Well if anyone wants to see me curl up in a corner and rock back and fourth for the rest of my life, they should force me to watch that, lol! Also Raj definitely looks the worst, actually Leonard way looks more like Raj than Leonard :p

  12. It's almost a shame the writers saved their butts by bringing the girls in before the audience knew they were needed, because it seemed to give some people the false impression that the writers had an infinite well of season 1-3 Sheldon material which wasn't helped by the impressive feat of keeping his character relatively the same for 3 seasons (well done guys). Of course people would think they were capable of keeping it up forever, but in fact, it was simply not possible given the circumstances (i.e. the natural growth of relationships between the characters).

     

    You're right to think Sheldon wouldn't become like Raj in the sense that he wouldn't be crying over women, but he would become equally as pathetic. As I already said in my earlier post, he'd clawing at the backs of the others as he didn't understand why they wanted to move on with their lives, being the absolute third wheel from hell and being left in the dust as they got sick of him. He listens to Amy. Amy is the only one who can help him keep up. Period. Full stop. Whatever you want to call it.

     

    Yes the audience likes romance, but they also like character development and not watching the writers of their favourite show struggle for ideas. It's not the girly fantasy dream that so many people seem to think shamy is.

     

    ETA: I just realized how off-topic this thing has gone. I don't really know why I bother since most of the points on our side of the debate go completely ignored as some people just want to stick their fingers in their ears...so...erm...Nice promo! I look forward to it ;)

  13.  Intelligence was always going to be the most important factor in a relationship for Sheldon, not sci-fi. That's more like an exciting fantasy that may wear thin quite quickly. Though the fact that Amy has shown an increasing interest in his activities shows that she really does care about him a great deal. There was D&D, Raiders of the lost ark (heck she paid attention to it enough to point out a flaw that no-one else had noticed), some of his comic books, and it's shown that Lenny and Shamy do play video games together. If you're thinking, why can't she be both? Then I'd have to disagree, I think these differences add more of a give and take-element.

     

    And that's exactly it, Amy is the only one Sheldon sees at the same level as him so he has a huge amount of respect for her, more than he does for the apparently more "geeky"  sci-fi loving Leonard. This means he listens to her and takes her advice and it's usually very good advice that allows him to become a better person. Without Amy, Sheldon would have become more annoying than he is now, with all the characters changing and moving on with their lives. Sheldon would definitely whine about it and try to drag everyone backwards to meet with his needs and honestly, since the writers have still been so stubborn with his development, we can see a bit of it now. The problem doesn't stem from the fact that Amy has made Sheldon develop too much, it's the fact that he hasn't developed enough (though evidence this season shows this may be changing which I couldn't be happier about). I don't know why all of this blame is being placed on Amy. I have a good feeling that the writers would have run out of ideas for Sheldon really quickly if it weren't for her providing a constant challenge and a means for him to catch up with the others. If they were always exactly the same as each other and she constantly reinforced his bad behaviour then he'd fall fast and it'd get pretty boring. Without this evolution, the show certainly wouldn't be as popular as it is today.

     

     It may not seem like it to you but this development is in Sheldon's interest too. If Sheldon didn't adapt for his friends as they moved on with their lives, their patience would soon wear thin and they'd eventually push him away. Sheldon would have no idea why and it would kill him, he says he likes to be alone to cover up for the fact he cares about his friends a great deal. He wants to keep them, which also explains why takes Amy's advice without hesitation when she tells him he's being rude to them. Most of us as fans, as star said, would love to see him grow more explicitly so the gap between him and Amy closes up, then we'd see them do a lot more fun stuff together, certainly not for Amy to backtrack to meet him. That may have been okay a couple of seasons ago but there has been too much development in everyone else for that to work with the group dynamic now.
