  1. Or you can view Penny "bitching" in this episode about Leonard to Sheldon as her way of getting Sheldon to open up about what was bothering him in regards to Amy, while Leonard was helping Amy navigate her way through living with Sheldon. It's in the Lenny's long term interest to get the Shamy living together. Which will be a slow and painful process for Lenny, with much comic fun for us along the way. That's what was going on here, not the usual Penny whining about Leonard. It had a very specific purpose.
  2. I thought it was a good episode, sets up a few things. Most obvious being Raj in terms of finding out why he didn't want to tell them he's single. Something interesting seems to have gone on there with Raj, maybe the writers will stop joking around with Raj's sexuality and explore it ? Howard and Bernadette continue to crack me up with the pregnancy stuff, like how they are dealing with impending parenthood. Penny and Leonard showed some real maturity at times. Amy's anger with Sheldon was once again melted by her love for him, I think in that regard her venting to Leonard helped (rather than
  3. I think they mined the character goes away for the summer pretty well. Guess I want to see something different happen that's not a break up or Sheldon having to leave to sort through his emotions to changes he has no control over.
  4. Good choice. That's the thing though, we don't really know what Beverly was like when she was younger and unmarried. Academia may have turned her into the Beverly we know today. Leonard's learned a lot of uncomfortable things about his family via Beverly, now it's probably time he learned some things from his dad. All we've had is Beverly's side of the marriage, now it's time for Leonard's dad to tell his side of things. They may not address everything in a single episode, but it would be nice for one of Leonard's parents to show that they are proud of him without a guilt trip at
  5. I think the writers will switch back to Lenny now that they've gone through the Shamy stuff. It's a pattern - Resolve Lenny drama early from the previous season, then set a plot into motion that puts Lenny somewhat in the background and then bring focus back to them for the second half of the season.
  6. I loved the episode, it's what I've been hoping for i.e. Sheldon getting to grips with his feelings. Not much more to say really, other than the journey to Amy and Sheldon possibly getting back together might well turn out to be a long one. As for the actors not being in many scenes ? It's an ensemble cast, the episode was built around Sheldon.
  7. I didn't think Stuart was early Howard level creepy. He's just filling a role in the episode that Howard would have been in, had he not married Bernadette. Overall the episode was quite low key, had it's moments. Amy breaking up with Sheldon was nicely done by both actors. That's how I thought they would break up, Sheldon not understanding the social norms in this situation and reverting to his snippy self, while Amy finally snapped. I know Shamy fans won't like it, but I think it will do both characters a lot of good in the long. They won't be broken up forever. It will be interesting to see
  8. I'm guessing Chuck alongside Bill and a few others work out the direction of the characters and the general ideas for a season, writes a few episodes then takes a step back, all be it probably reading scripts and providing notes (doubt he has the time to rewrite scripts like Moffat does on Doctor Who when a script is not polished enough). Plus I guess Chuck acts as buffer between the show and the business side of things. I do think it would be kind of funny to have a Mom and Big Bang Theory crossover, but that'll never happen.
  9. I'm guessing had this happened in season 7 Shamy fans would have been up in arms over it then. They've been building upto this for a while, season 8 got in the way as the writers were setting things up for a longer run. Sheldon and Amy did not resolve any of their issues, Sheldon still clings to the relationship agreement and Amy wants things to get a lot more physical and has been constantly rebuffed by Sheldon. Amy reached her breaking point with Sheldon. The journey both characters are going on will be interesting to watch, as both have been rather static. Yes they've made out, Sheldon was
  10. It's been building up for a while, sometimes breakups happen over the most mundane of things. Sheldon still has a lot of character growth to go through and Amy has to an extent as well. Lazy writing ? That is quite easy to say, but we simply do not know what the game plan for Sheldon and Amy is over the course of season 9. If they get back together after a few episodes then you might have a point. I hated it when they broke up Lenny, but that has with hindsight strengthened Leonard and Penny's characters. Perhaps they could have pulled the trigger on a Shamy break up at the end of season 7. B
  11. Looking at Shamy objectively - The split was going to happen sooner or later due to Sheldon's unreasonable behaviour towards Amy, I know Shamy fans don't want to hear that but that's my point of view. The pay off ? Sheldon grows up and wins Amy back eventually. If you don't like the way the show is going then you can stop watching it if it's upsetting you this much. It's too early to pass judgement on the episodes as they have not aired yet. Taping reports can only tell you so much, what's missing are the actors performances. I would also say that it was probably Chuck Lorre's and Bill Prady's
  12. I guess you've been watching a different show to me. Jim, Kaley and Johnny worked extremely hard to get their characters dynamics to work, they have a chemistry that is irresistible to watch when they get the right material. Everything else evolved from that with Simon and Kunal bringing a lot of extra things to the show. Mayiam did have some lousy lines, but it's the chemistry between her and Jim that makes Shamy work. Sheldon in isolation simply wouldn't work, Jim needs the others to bounce off. Simon's character has benefited greatly from Melissa's Bernadette, Creepy Howard was wearing thi
  13. Might be that they've used season 8 to rejig the board for all the characters so they've got more storylines to work with in seasons 9 & 10. Thus Lenny have been sidelined to an extent. Might be a sign that the writers are giving Lenny more to do in the second half of the season. It just seems that Lenny have been too quiet of late in terms of the comedy elements of the relationship. Seems the canvas is a good way to start that up with. Anyway I guess if you wanted to get Lenny out of their current comfort zone, you could possibly introduce Penny or Leonard's sibilings into
  14. Seems the writers don't know where to take Lenny now they are engaged, unless they've got some plot lines coming up to shift things around. Lenny lacks it usual spark for some reason I can't quite put my finger on and I don't think it's because they've hit the been together for years stage of a relationship.
  15. Sounds like a season finale Cliffhanger to me It would make a change from somebody disappearing for the summer. Lenny - Are they pregnant or not ? etc It would probably play out that way. Though I would guess they'd insert Sheldon into it for the laughs, I can just imagine him describing every detail of his sister giving birth to Leonard and Penny to see how they react.
