  1. [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    I just loooooooove her little boots.
  2. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    Exactly. Rating measures viewership. Nothing more, nothing less. Actually, there couldn't be a more objective measure. What viewership numbers may mean to different people, that could be subjective, but not the ratings themselves. I agree with what the ratings mean to you, but not the rest of your analogy. The only other valid concern is (for show runners and advertisers) if they can make money. If they can they'll keep on doing it. I would like to say artistic integrity is one of their main concerns too, but that ship sailed a long time ago and it's been MIA for quite some time.
  5. Last movie you saw in theaters?

    You definitely should as this one is a continuation of the themes of the first one. When you see the original this will make even more sense.
  6. The Orville

    Yes, I've seen it and liked it even if , as someone said, it borrows (IMO too much) from Star Trek. I hope they'd tone down the jokes even more. If they do the show can become even better.
  7. Big Little Lies

    I just saw this. Yes I did. I loved Big Little Lies. What a tour de force for Nicole Kidman, and actually Alexander Skarsgard as well. Very difficult subject matter, but superbly acted and realized.
  8. Mayim Bialik

    I agree with almost everything you say. I think we ( you and me) sort of think the same thing but were coming at it from 2 different angles. in regards to what you say about calling Mr. Weinstein out on his behavior, I believe when Mira Sorvino mentioned this a long time ago nobody paid any attention to her. That speaks volumes about "Hollywood culture". Abuses of power like this shouldn't be permitted. I hope the more this gets talked about the faster it goes away. Btw, I totally believe Mayim has a right to voice her opinions. However, if she does so in a public forum, I (or anybody else) has a right to disagree with her, and criticize her (or agree as the case might be).
  9. [Spoilers] Lenny: Season 11

    Me too. I really liked Lenny in this episode. That's what drives me nuts about the writers: that they can write Lenny well when they choose to. the only line I hated as we'd been discussing is the "I married you to hurt her" line. Apart from that it was a good Lenny episode. Wouldn't it be great if they had transformed Sheldon's bedroom into a Star trek inspired "entertainment" hub/dungeon?

    When I said any backlash, I mean that her opinion could be criticized and that people could "verbally" scathe her if they chose to do so. Of course I didn't mean that any physical response to her (or anybody else for that matter) for an opinion is warranted. Furthermore, of course she misspoke. Otherwise she would attempt to clarify anything. IMO, I think she should have just accepted that she worded her opinion badly and therefore just move on or at the very least not try to blame somebody else for how the opinion came across. Saying how she feels is not putting her foot in her mouth, but when she does so and doesn't sat exactly what she means, then yes. I personally think that the example she gave saying how she avoided certain situations, and how that worked for her if the very thing that shifts attention from the perpetrator to the potential victims, because it implies, however indirectly that the victim behavior can determine the outcome of any potential harassment victim, and shifts blame to the victims and not the sick fuck who's abusing them (or trying to). I see what you're trying to say, but I think in this case your assessments are flawed. In Weinstein's case the only way to reduce the risk of anything bad happening, even if you knew beforehand, would've been not to meet with the guy at all, and I'm pretty sure that a lot of professional futures depended on exactly that, so what could they have done?
  11. Mayim Bialik

    I think that Mayim grossly misspoke on the Harvey Weinstein subject matter, and can't seem to stop putting her foot in her mouth. Furthermore, she's apparently not capable of admitting her mistake. Don't say that people take things out of context, just admit to the fact that you were saying stupid shit, problem solved. Nobody forced her to voice the opinion she voiced and to word it how she did. In this occasion any backlash is 100 % her fault. When an opinion is public it is open to criticism. In this case, IMO, any criticism and backlash she gets is fully warranted.
  12. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    So then it is Leonard's fault for Sheldon being an asshole?
  13. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    I mostly agree with everything you say except for the fact that ratings do not objectively measure quality but viewership. Quality doesn't have anything to do with it, really.
  14. [Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

    It is actually not debatable how much Sheldon intruded in Lenny's life. And FYI we've been complaining about our ship mainly after S7. Heck, he even interrupted both of Lenny's weddings, so I really don't know what the hell you're talking about saying it's debatable. No it isn't, but being a total dick is not the answer either, no matter how "right" you may be.
  15. [Spoilers] The "Dark" Lenny Thread: Season 11

    Jokes are supposed to be funny..... just saying..... While I agree with the meaning and spirit of your post, I do not agree with the sentence I bolded. TBH, it couldn't be a more direct shot at Penny if he wanted: " I married you to hurt her. You're kind of ruining it. " It is beyond contempt and it is so pathetic from Leonard. It is almost s bad as when Leonard mentioned to Penny she was really trying to sleep with her father when they first had sex. The difference is you could forgive it then because of how new things were and how socially inept Leonard was. 10 years later (and married to Penny no less) it is simply inadmissible. Maybe YOU should be in the writers' room.
