  1. Generally, the big changes in Lenny happen in the second half of a season. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  2. One scene uncommented upon was when Leonard fixed dinner for Penny and they started discussing dates. Amy shows up hunting for Sheldon, and tries to crash their alone time together. Leonard practically hit her in the head with hints, and Penny finally just said "get out". I loved it. I think that is going to be a recurring theme, as each member of the group is going to have to be reminded that it is Leonard and Penny, not Leonard and Penny and whoever is feeling needy. This is really the root of Sheldon's issue. He is NOT part of Lenny, and he simply cannot understand it. I just recently rewat
  3. Penny did propose to Leonard, was quite serious about it, and stressed that she had been considering it for some time. She may have been waiting for a check from "Serial Apeist 2" to buy a ring, or some other token, but she did ask, and argued with Leonard quite vehemently about it. She was not distracted, so it didn't just slip out. Leonard didn't just jump at it either. They actually had a mature, serious discussion about the concept of them getting married, and the context of Penny asking. Basically they both looked at each other and asked if they were really sure, and it was clearly someth
  4. I too agree that they made too big a deal of Raj having sex over Lenny getting actually engaged. First, Lenny have never been engaged. There have been unsuccessful proposals, but they never actually closed the deal. Second, it is out of character for girls in general to value a single night of sex by anyone over a engagement announcement. In a real world situation, the girls would have said "that's nice" then gone back to gushing over Penny's ring. Let's face it, Raj and Emily had been dating for a while. Having sex was a normal thing to happen. It was nice, but not earth shaking. Even Raj poi
  5. I think it makes sense that they would change up Penny's hair. Girls often do that when they are feeling pretty good about their relationship, or if they just want a change. In some ways, it makes less sense that she would have kept the same hairstyle forever. All one has to do is look at the first season, and the most recent. She's willing to change things around a bit. It would be more drastic if she changed the color. It will be very interesting to see the calls the writers make for what happened over the summer. As many have mentioned, the length of time passing over the summer can hav
  6. I'd like to see Leonard and Penny move into together in 4A, and Sheldon move into 4B.
  7. In fact, when Sheldon comes back, there should be a change to the Roommate Agreement to the effect that comments disparaging Penny's virtue, regardless of any evidence or hypotheses, constitutes an Agreement nullifying offense, and an end to the Leonard and Sheldon Friendship. And that this is non-negotiable. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. I never understood the double standard, starting with when I found out that being with girls was fun. Logic to me was that if I wanted to have sex, then I needed to find a girl that also wanted to have sex. The guys trashing girls because they "put out" seemed the height of stupidity. Even now, I hear the girls in my research lab disparaging other girls for being "easy" as a reason why they can't find decent guys. First of all, how do they know? Is someone spreading tales which may or may not be true? And why is it a big deal? This generation seems to have gotten over many racial stereotypes,
  9. Some women I've known are messy on their own but when nesting are quite different. Particularly when kids arrive. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  10. I like the way this looks. I hope Emily is continued as she would be a good addition to the girls group. As a dermatologist, she is scientific, but she has tattoos and generally seems social, so she would be a bridge between Penny and the the other girls. I did forget that Penny is pretty good about doing the laundry. Maybe that can be her thing, and Leonard can clean. Cooking can be a joint thing, as I'm sure Penny can make a salads and such.

  11. When Penny and Leonard do move in together, it will be interesting to see what she brings to the relationship. This season, it has been pointed out that she is poor housekeeper and cook. Raj noted that she only had one arrow in her quiver. So is Leonard going to cook, clean and earn all the money? Penny needs to at least take a cooking class. Of course, Sheldon has never been observed to cook, but he was neat. Maybe Penny would be better off learning to clean, as Leonard is used to doing to cooking and apparently good at it.

  12. I suspect that the writers may have realized that Sheldon was getting to or there, and this is their way of resting the character. I imagine Jim Parsons was getting a bit uncomfortable with the way he was being written. They don't really need to change the character much, just dial down the mean a lot. A good example was when Leonard approached Sheldon about the potential new living arrangements. The funny line would be for Sheldon to say it would be hard to support the myth of Penny's notional virginity given that Penny and Leonard have been going at it like rabbits. Implying that she slept w
  13. There are several reasons why Lenny's talk so much about Sheldon. First, he has evolved into the antagonist in the story. Not the villain precisely, but frequently the character the others struggle against. For a long time, Penny was this a little bit. Leonard is the protagonist. He struggles against Sheldon's rage for stasis, and Penny's reluctance to commit. Sheldon wants Leonard to live as his roommate with only the occasional girlfriend forever. Leonard sees living with Sheldon as a situation that has an ending. Sheldon has gradually accepted Penny as his secondary caregiver, and a factor
  14. If Sheldon isn't mentally ill in some way, then he is just an ass and flat doesn't care enough to attempt to understand others. He thinks he's perfect, has stated it many times even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, and is horrified that interaction with others might change his "perfection". Consider his reaction when Leonard and Penny point out how Amy has changed him. This is right after he stated that he had been molding Leonard to be a conduit for his will. This is insane.

  15. I suspect that Penny and Leonard will get a lot more protective of each other, as have Howard and Bernadette. The latter called Sheldon out on his treatment of Howard. I don't think Leonard is going to stand for anyone to suggest his fiancee/wife is a slut for long and clearly Penny expects him to defend her. Leonard just needs to man up and defending Penny against all would be a great place to stay. The problem is that nerds get used to avoiding conflict. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  16. Some of Sheldon's best work came about through collaboration with either Leonard or Raj. Apart from what we saw in Season One, Leonard has tended to avoid collaborating with him. The best reason for this is that two people living together shouldn't also work together. I collaborated with my roommate in graduate school, and it actually drove us apart as friends. Switching places with Penny might have positive career implications, as Leonard could get some professional as well as personal distance from Sheldon, and be open to collaborate again. When one considered that each major relationship
  17. Another thing to remember is that in the first appearance of Prof Proton, Leonard is deemed by Proton to be the genius. We also see who he wants to work with later. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  18. Leonard is just more balanced. Experimentally usually are, as they do stuff, or have to wait for the data to come in. If you think about the Artic trip, Sheldon wanted answers NOW, and the other guys knew it would take time. Leonard has to be patient. Look at the patience he displayed to get Penny. He went from no chance to having propose to him, and be quite forceful about it. Imagine if Sheldon wanted something from Amy and she didn't satisfy his want? Recall how he simply can't wait until the next day when getting an email from the president of the university regarding the Artic trip? Leona
  19. There is also the paper he gave to Hawking with the simple algebra error. It is unlikely that someone would get a Nobel in theoretical physics without Hawking's support. The message I get is that poor old pedestrian Leonard, put down by both his "best friend" and the ice queen he has the misfortune to have to call mother, is the most likely to get tenure and any real peer recognition. Plus the love of a wonderful girl. Sheldon doesn't have the sense to see he is his own worst enemy. He should be thanking his lucky stats he met Leonard. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  20. The fact that Sheldon has been so vocal about seeking one, and now his desperation to leave string theory for more promising areas will almost ensure he won't get one. One gets prizes like that because your peers think you deserve it. Sheldon is openly contemptuous of basically everyone, so who in the scientific community would vote for him? He also has a reputation note for pulling serious scientific boners, so they aren't likely to trust anything he says until vigorously proven. He will be quite old before that happens. He had no chance in string theory anyway, as he was developing others id
  21. I believe that regardless of the state of the Shamy, there will be Lenny drama. They can't even get engaged without yelling at each other. It probably makes for great make up sex, however. I would like to hear about them needing a steel frame bed though to replace the wooden one. There will be issues to confront, as they are from very different backgrounds, and we really haven't heard much about them discussing marriage issues. Kids is a big one. The results of the North Sea trip still haven't been discussed either. They did have one talk about who would move if one or the other's career neces
  22. I hope that the Shennies continue to enjoy disappointment, 'cause that's all they're going to get from this. Penny's possessiveness of Leonard is just the start. It won't be Penny trying to get Leonard to leave Sheldon behind, she will get between them and warn Sheldon off. At most, you'll get a scene like at the end of "Superbad". The guys will look at each other over their shoulders as their girlfriend/fiancée leads them away. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  23. It really doesn't make sense to split up Lenny. Shoot, Bernie and Howard actually have real problems. Lenny has had seven years to sort things out. I think they're past breaking up. Really, moving Sheldon to 4B just changes him to the frequent drop in guest. Over the years some of his funniest moments have been walking in on Lenny while they were making out. Having Penny and Sheldon fight over the constant violation of Lenny space would be hilarious. The writers like having Penny and Sheldon get into it, so having Penny fight for Leonard turf could be wonderful. Sent from my SM-G900V using
  24. I think it will be fascinating to see Sheldon trying to live alone, even with Lenny across the hall. Remember he had bad dreams when Leonard was gone, and high jacked Penny's bed. I thought that was seriously out of character, as he slept in a bed that was still warm from a girl. the premise of next season could have two facets - Sheldon tries to Live Alone and Leonard and Penny Play House. You could have all three having discussions about the shortcomings of the new situation. One problem with not having Lenny in 4A is that it has been amply proven that the group is Leonard-centric. That is
  25. This points out Sheldon's dilemma. He can keep His Spot in 4A and lose Lenny to distance, or move across the hall and give up His Spot. What Sheldon wants, he can't have. He wants stasis, and that is simply not possible. It is not even a given that if he were willing to move to 4B that Lenny would want to be across the hall from him. Invariably, Sheldon would want to visit HIs Spot and would try to spend as much time as possible there. He clearly doesn't respect anyone's territorial boundaries when he wants something (just as President Siebert). All of the assumptions above regarding His Spot
