  1. Does anybody else wish they had brought up Pi day? I know they filmed it weeks in advance, but if they knew when they were SHOWING it...that could have been golden. For example, if Sheldon insisted that their party be Pi themes, with nothing but pie being served. I don't know about you guys, but I think that would have been hysterical.
  2. I feel like bringing in the sweeter side of the group was a really important moment. This show makes me laugh until I cry, but I love that they've given them such a human moment. And I know the episode wasn't really ABOUT them, but Leonard and Penny took a huge step today. They threw a party together. And coming back from Bernadette and Howard's dinner, they both automatically went to her apartment. Ok, I know it's probably not a big deal, I just found it so advanced for their relationship. And I LOVED it. It is serious progress and I think this advancement will start manifesting in other ways too!!!
  3. "I read an article about Japanese scientists who inserted DNA from luminous jelly fish into other animals and I thought 'hey! Fish night lights!'" "Fish night lights?" "It's a billion dollar idea!! SHHH!" ..... "That's just the beginning. I also have an idea for a bulk mail order feminine hygiene company. OHHHH glow in the dark tampons! Leonard, we're going to be RICH." ... "Honey, why'd you get a loom? "Well, I was working with luminous fish and I thought...hey...loom... The Luminous Fish Effect. My FAVORITE episode. <3
  4. Time to watch the new Big Bang Theory episode! Oh wait.

  5. Which blog?!?! I think it's one I need to start following....
  6. So I've been reading this on fanfiction.net before I even joined this website, and I've reviewed almost every chapter on there haha but I feel the need to now post HERE just how much I LOVE this story. It is one of my favorite Shamy fics and I also shriek with joy every time I see an update!

  8. So.....um.......you're my HERO. THANK YOU.
  9. Well the worm has turned.

  10. Lorre's vanity card for this episode was so touching. He talks about how he felt something so innately human about the final scene, the action of holding someone's hand conveying emotions, the need for support, the act of relying on one another. He says he had to stifle tear while writing it. He then went on to make me cry by ending it with "I hope you've laughed a lot and stifled a little. I hope you're holding someone's hand. See you next season." I love those vanity cards.
  11. I personally don't agree with the claims made about Sheldon's slow development. It IS slow, but I would be highly skeptical if it were any other way. He has been been forced to change or compromise his desires. When Leonard first moved in with him in the flashback episode he was even stranger, yet now we see him as more cheerful, used to his particular brand of social interaction and more accepting of social paradigms. However, that was a gradual shift over time that came with simply being exposed. Amy is a different situation. She wants things he would originally have been unwilling to give. He thinks love is hokum and emotions are unnecessary, however he is, as Howard eloquently pointed out, whipped. Amy means a lot to him as seen in episodes such as The Zazzy Substitution. And that was merely at the very beginning of their friendship! He was jealous of Stuart which drove him towards the romantic relationship with Amy. He refers to the Relationship Agreement as binding, subtly displaying his devotion, or the depth of his attachment though he won't admit it. He has now admitted that a physical relationship with Amy is in fact NOT off the table. That, for Sheldon, is a huge step. That's as good as admitting he was wrong! He was constantly moaning about his friends and their baser urges, claiming he was so above that, never to want or need it. He has now confided in his friends that that is no longer the case (just not in as many words, of course). I also found his choice of the tiara as an apology gift extremely symbolic, but that may have just been me. Anyway, my point is, the writers have been dropping larger and larger hints throughout the seasons, getting much more frequent now. The tension in the relationship is clearly building at an alarming rate (maybe not FAST but in comparison to where it started, it is indeed an alarming rate). I personally felt that, though very frustrating, the climb was extremely necessary. Otherwise it just wouldn't be Sheldon. Though unpredictable in some ways, in others he is VERY predictable and though it may not allow for huge plot twists such as a sudden wild romantic relationship, it allows for a realistic character development. This is the first time he's been told he has to change or things won't go his way. And the fact that he's coming off as more of an "ass" because of his treatment of Amy in a rejecting manner connotes that something is getting to him, and to me that means he's going to break soon. So, I find that rather encouraging!
  12. I think Amy's distance from her family in the show is a really interesting contrast to Sheldon. He's so reliant on his mother and often talks about his twin, yet Amy is so independent. It shows Sheldon's child-like attitude and how he's really still just a kid because he's never HAD to grow up. Amy, on the other hand, is not SOCIALIZED but she's extremely independent. I kinda like it! Especially now that Sheldon is starting to rely on Amy more and more... SHAMY <3
  13. Jim Parsons is the funniest, most honest and talented actor I have ever seen on a screen or on stage. I would try to start an international Jim Parsons day but...every day is Jim Parsons day for me. So. That's just futile.
  14. I personally love Penny. I know a lot of people think her character is shallow or extremely anti-feminist in nature due to her being some sort of "sex symbol" for the guys, and while she may be, considering their exposure, she is so much more than that. I think her reluctance for commitment is an important character trait that emphasizes her independence and her need to be sure, as well as her growing maturity. In the past she has been so tied up with guys, the first episode talking about her ex who she loved and was with for a long time etc., however now she's realizing the need to take care of herself and go slowly. Sure, it's with the first decent guy she's been with, but I think that's all the more important. She's not thinking "Ah, well, I know him, he's great, head-first into this relationship I go!" She's still taking her time to figure out if the problem ever was the guy, or if maybe it was her. In addition, her ability to physically overcome to men despite her smaller stature (in comparison to some of the guys...obviously not all of them) is a more physical, yet telling, aspect of her dominance. While Leonard feels the need to tip-toe around Sheldon, she ploughs right on through. What intimidates her is the unknown aspect of herself, not the outside world. She's taking the time to figure it out, which I think it excellent. Now, a little off topic, however I still think EXTREMELY significant, was Amy's role in the episode. I love her as a character, I think she's developed spectacularly and she's shifted the relationships and, I feel, brought a new balance to the show. Her line to the monkeys where she shouts "Yes I know you want a cigarette and I want a normal boyfriend, but we can't all get what we want!" (or something along those lines) is a HUGE jump for her! She's finally verbally admitted that she's unhappy with where her and Sheldon are. She's obviously alluded to it before, with the roommate issue, and at points during Valentine's Day, however I feel like it's now not just a joke to play off but a real, tangible conflict. And hopefully one that will yield wonderful results for us Shamy obsessors!
