    Overall I thought this was quite a funny episode despite my favourite character only appearing on screen briefly and on a laptop. Loved, Loved LOVED Kaley in this episode! her “I don’t wanna” whisper absolutely cracked me up! she totally shines in this ep! brilliant :) 

    Shamy:
    I loved the Best, best western, best, best buy conversation! :rofl: and they were so sweet flirting over Skype but still very in character with Sheldon being insulted that she would want him at a neurobiology conference.

    Sheldon attempting 'youth talk' with his "Shel-don" and “stop selling it kid!” was funny and the Synesthesia stuff was really interesting, I’m glad it came up on the show and prompted me to read up on the subject a bit.

    Leonard :
    I don’t normally laugh much at Leonard, as he’s normally stuck being the ‘straight man’ on the show but I cracked up at him on the jump rope! I don’t enjoy watching him moan all the time but he was a lot of fun to watch in this episode and he had a really sweet idea to name the asteroid after the girls :) Good to see him happy!  

    Raj:
    As I’ve been saying all season MORE RAJ, PLEASE, K, THANKS! :/ 

    Doctor Gallow (sp?) :
    Is it just me or was she actually quite similar to Beverly? Like a warmer more ‘mumsy’ version? I don’t normally enjoy the stereotypical ‘will trick you into talking about your issues’ TV shrink trope but she made it enjoyable and funny. “I went to college in the 70’s, it was a hairier time!” :rofl:

    Stuart - No. Just no. Creepy AF. and did I mention no?!

    This, exactly.

    I thought this was a solid episode, which apparently puts me in the minority.  The jump-roping made me LOL; it looked like some Cal Tech undergrads taking a study break outside one of the sorority houses, though admittedly I didn't look closely.  Kaley delivered her lines expertly for comic effect.  It's nice to see Penny dressed professionally and being successful in her career.  The names for the asteroid turning in Sheldon's favor was clever writing, as was the best Best Western/Buy dialogue.  Oh, and Jane Kaczmarek was perfect.

    I'm sorry but can you tell me what "in sweeps" means?

    I only find translations about cleaning with a broom

    Sweeps weeks are the weeks in Feb, May, and Nov when a company called Nielsen measures the ratings of TV shows.  (I'm not sure how ratings are calculated the other weeks, but they're always published.)  The ratings in these three months are used to set prices for advertisers, so networks often try to air special episodes then.

    As someone who has written a taping report before, don't stress yourself out too much about it. Simply write what you want to write if you want to write anything at all. 99.9% of spoiler people are happy to get any information and won't pester you, but the 0.1% can be really annoying. I can understand the appeal for spoilers because in a way you get to experience episodes twice. The first being a taping report and the second when the episode airs. As of now, I will be very upset if the 200th episode isn't Shamy centric. That may change depending on what kind of stuff we get between now and then. :)

    I went back a few pages because I wanted to know if you'll still be upset if the 200th isn't about Shamy.  Personally, I'm good, roughly until Amy's next birthday.

  4. I think the entire episode was perfect, every last detail, including the non-Shamy scenes.  One aspect of the Shamy story that I adored is, the writers came back around and showed the problem that caused the break-up has now been resolved, or at least Sheldon understands now what she needs.  Back in May, Amy was concerned because he wasn't mentally present while they were kissing; he was thinking about sci-fi.  In this episode, Sheldon, completely of his own initiative, put aside the biggest sci-fi event in years because he wanted to show her on her bday how much she means to him.  He showed no regrets about his choice and no signs of being distracted.  Some people have said Shamy got back together without addressing the problems between them, but I think this did.

    When Shamy broke up, I said the writers owed us an amazing reconciliation to make all the angst of the break-up worth it to the viewers.  IMHO, between 9.10 and 9.11, they delivered.

    Seriously, though, there is a bit of a stereotype, true or not, with tall men.

    It's not true.  I looked it up when Bernie implied it in Earworm.  There's no established correlation.  Sorry to ruin the fun, but it's good news for short guys and the people who love them.

    Just some little things: Sheldon's face when his eidetic memory reminds him that "This is the man who kissed her". And when he was about to kiss Amy, he kind of gave Dave a once over....and then when Dave stepped closer to Amy while they were makin out, Sheldon kind of tightened the hug like "She's mine."

    I actually didn't read it that way.  If Sheldon were the type to be possessive, I don't think he would have offered to leave and let Amy and Dave finish their date.  I read it as Sheldon was confused but didn't let it sidetrack him from his mission of getting Amy back.  It's definitely a confusing situation from Sheldon's POV; Amy's date is a huge fan of Sheldon and then encourages Sheldon to reunite with Amy?

    Speaking as negatively as I can here, I just really don't want the writers to be in the mindset that "ok, Amy has served her purpose for this season, so we'll just use her in Shamy-centric scenes from now on".... and I don't really think this but I hope the rest of the season doesn't play out this way. I miss the whole group and 13 episodes in and we STILL don't have a scene with them all :icon_rolleyes:

    Could it somehow be related to Hannukah?  I can't think how, but...

    I enjoyed the call back to the first time he asked her out. Yes, nibbler747 this was like a nice little Christmas present especially after waiting for 3 weeks. Also rule34, I am really looking forward to the first time they have Sheldon sitting in his spot with Amy next to him. It's the little things that I missed when this couple was broken up. :)

    For the longest time, I've wanted him to refer to the seat next to his on the couch as Amy's spot.

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply that I only wanted to hear from unspoiled fans. You're right, hearing spoiled fans impression of reading the taping report is just as interesting. I also thought they would shy away from Shamy for awhile after how the Aquarium episode ended. I was actually looking forward to seeing more with them as friends. I wanted to see them all hanging out together and have Sheldon look at her and realize then and there that he wanted to be with her. I am definitely not complaining with how it played out, it just wasn't what I was expecting.

     

    I 100% agree with more whole cast episodes. I miss those so much this season. I want an episode with everyone in the living room and the whole story line revolves around everyone.

     

    Also can we talk about the fact that Dave wanted to talk with Sheldon about physics, and Sheldon either didn't hear or didn't care because he was making out with Amy. Seriously, that is awesome. :)

    No, that wasn't directed at you.  I was just trying to answer the original question. :)

    I noticed that Sheldon ignored Dave, too, which is remarkable especially because Dave gave Sheldon a big compliment.  Usually, someone worshiping Sheldon would get his full attention.

    The other part I thought was great was how melty Amy got when she said, "I love you too".  Since she was the one who initiated the break-up, it was nice to see her be so thrilled to get back together.

  10. in response to what the unspoiled fans expected from this episode, remember we were all unspoiled once.  It's just a matter of when we found out what happened.  The unspoiled probably expected about the same thing we did until our friends told us what happened.  Going into Earworm, I thought we'd had a lot of Shamy lately, they were sort of at an equilibrium as friends, and the writers would likely focus on other things for a while.  I had been waiting until Shamy were back together to watch all the episodes in between, and it was a big relief to be able to watch the show again.

    Seriously, now I just really crave the whole-cast episodes again and pairings we haven't seen in a while.  Enough with the romantic drama, now I want to see friendships.  Shamy are my favorite couple, probably my favorite fictional couple of all time, but what I really love about this show is the way these "misfits" accept and value each other.

  11. I have to say, I don't think there were any deliberate hints in the kissing scene that sex was on the horizon.  I only say that because Jim and Mayim hadn't seen the next week's script until after this scene was filmed.  Still, I don't want to ruin anyone's fun who sees foreshadowing.  Maybe the director knew and asked them to play it that way.

    I think Darlin' was the perfect song choice also because they needed to tie Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys into "brilliant minds descending into madness." That's how he realized what the song was. They needed a pretty obscure song but also a song that Sheldon might have heart growing up, and they also needed it to be by an artist who lost their marbles. None of those old bands like the Beatles, for example, had a member who fit that category. At least not to my knowledge.

    The song might not be everyone's cup of tea (although knowing it's Shamy's song and it reminds me of them makes me love it quite a lot :wub:) but you gotta admit, with the criteria and the lyrics, it's pretty dang perfect. It also just sounds cute and quirky, like Shamy. :)

    I think you meant to write "a song that Sheldon might have heard" but made a typo.  It's perfect, though.  His heart apparently internalized it.  Never have I loved a typo so much.
