  1. Is she not smart or not educated? The show has made many references that she didn't complete community college, so she did complete part of it, therefore, isn't it logical to assume she is smart enough to complete community college. I have had to explain technical systems, in very simple ways, to people with masters degrees in non technical fields, many times in the past, so Penny may just pursue a non technical degree. Not everyone likes science.

    Good point. Although you may be preaching to the choir. This person also called Penny a loser. It seems millions of people watch the show and like her character. Does that make all of those people (including myself) stupid and a loser?

  2. I don't think Penny is anywhere near ready to settle down with Leonard.  She's comfortable with him and possessive of him, but ILY aside, I don't see any passion there.  She just recently said something to the effect of "in the bedroom, he . . . tries REALLY hard".  Heck girl, you're a confident big ol'FIVE, with a guy that would do anything to make you happy.  Tell him what you want!  Sheesh.  I'm glad Alex is pushing Penny's jealousy buttons, hope it helps.

    I think Alex's appearance has totally benefitted Leonard. Penny saw Alex flirting with him in the cafeteria. Also Amy being there and reinforcing the fact in her own unique way seem to hit home with Penny and made her even more jealous. Penny visiting him at work, attempting to go to college and the ILY all came after that. Thursday's show should be interesting with Alex being on.

  3. The fault was Raj's as he was the only person in control of his senses.But Raj has never liked the fact that Leonard was having sex with his sister and pretty much hid it from him initially.They should have explained the scene from Raj's perspective tht way as his way of getting back at Leonard.Would have made him look less of a douche,though he never did anything wrong technically.Both were single.

    Good point.

  4. As actors maybe some similarities as characters none.Rachel actually had a lot of professional development as the show went along.Penny remains a loser after 5 seasons mooching of all her vastly sucessful friends.

    Friends was on the air for ten years. If TBBT is on for that long there is going to be lot more things to happen on the show including changes in Penny's career. She won't be a waitress forever. Everyone's definition of success is different. Does Sheldon not winning the Nobel Peace Prize make him unsuccessful? In another post it mentions Penny is stupid. Compared to the other six she probably is. But 99% percent of the world would be too. Just because your not good at school makes you stupid.

  5. One thing that always bothered me was that Penny controls the sexual relationship between her and Leonard, all the time. I think it would be nice if they had an episode or even two where Leonard was in control and Penny was the one who did it when he wanted. They would have to come up with a good reason that Leonard doesn't want to do it with her every time, but I think it would be funny for Penny to be turned down by him and her having to work for it. The story would have to not be too trashy though, because I don't like trashy Penny. I would like to see her get a shy with Leonard over the whole thing, like she is worried and wants to have relations but is scared she is going to mess up. This could be another character development thing for her too, because sex is another thing she takes Leonard for granted with. It could be really funny her talking to the girls how she misses it with Leonard, but is sort of uncomfortable talking about it.

    It looks like it has already started. Leonard turned Penny down in the last Christmas episode. I think the tide has begun to swing his direction. I think the January 3 episode will be beneficial to Leonard too since good things happen to him when Alex is on.

  6. It seems Leonard is the one to blame for Penny/Raj thing. He was sleeping with Raj's sister at the time. Raj was upset, lonely and drinking. Penny realized she made a mistake with Leonard breaking up with him. But Leonard had moved on Priya. She was with Raj and did something she regretted. There was no way Penny could have known that Leonard/Priya broke up. Notice Leonard wasn't mad that it happened because he was to blame.

  7. The original pilot had only Sheldon and Leonard on it. The network wouldn't put the show on the air. It got rewritten and Penny,Howard and Raj characters got added. Obviously Sheldon may be most people's favorite character but Leonard's the one that brought all the characters and thus is the most important character. In regards to Penny some of the funniest and most touching moments of the show were scenes with Sheldon and Penny. With others previous logic that someone else could play Penny the same logic could be said someone else could play Sheldon. Double BAZINGA!!! By the way I love the Amy character but she hasn't been on half the episodes. At least on my list of important characters she has to be behind the original five.
