http://www.thebigbangtheoryhq.com/ Alright lads and laddesses, before the sound of eye-rolling becomes deafening, we have the excellent Tripper’s blessing to announce this, so don’t go querulously thumbing through the rule-book. We have laboured long and hard, and perhaps somewhat insanely, to create a celebratory, and mildly psychedelic and twitch-inducing website in honour of Sheldon and Penny. This means the characters individually, and all permutations of their friendship, both Canon and Hypothetical. Thus the Platonic, Philosophical, and Romantic Shenny. If the latter is not your cup of bovril, then merely ignore these sections, they are clearly marked. Wandering around the site, you’re not going to accidentally stumble upon a vaseline-lensed manip of S and P doing “the dance with no pants”, as we think manips are idiotic, so you’re safe. The site itself is a thing of high beauty, if I do say myself. As I didn’t design the damn thing, only wrote some wordy bits, I can get away with spruiking the LOOK of it without blowing my own trumpet. Please do go and have a gander or butchers at it. We meant it to be entertaining. Obviously there is a heavy bias in favour of describing Sheldon and Penny scenes, and a distinct absence of any other characters, so if you don’t “dig” either of them, then perhaps give it a miss. Here it is; http://www.thebigbangtheoryhq.com Later we shall be including sections on various minor or guest characters, such as Wil Wheaton, Mary Cooper, and the Existential Angst of Stuart Bloom, but for now we are focusing on our two favourites, Mantis-Boy and the Blond Monkey. There is also a forum section for generally cranky bastards to congregate and amuse themselves. As it was created expressly for Nostalgics, Sheldon Purists and Shennys of all variations, and is entirely populated by them, if these sort of characters generally irritate or antagonise you, then again, perhaps give that section a miss. We will not be held responsible for the opinions expressed in these areas. Except for our own opinions of course. Obviously. The Forum is essentially irrelevant to the site, but as we’ve received some queries on the matter, we’ll explain a few things; We’ve set it to Private Membership because there’s a certain portion of the Internet that likes to wander in to such places, say “bum”, then wander out again. As we don’t have a sophisticated 3-post-approval moderation system, a brief enquiry letter, or recommendation from another human that you’re not a mouth-breathing troglodyte, is about the best we can come up with. Which brings me to a quandary we have. Some very pleasant and charming “Canon Shippers” have recently asked to join the HQ forum. In theory we are not adverse to this in the slightest. The more the merrier. Or not. Because in practise, however, we fail to see how this cannot but end in the sort of disagreement and unpleasantness that occasionally flairs up on this very forum, which would nullify the purpose of creating it. We don’t want war, we want to discuss the show, but in our own fashion. Nostalgics, Sheldonites and Shennys are all unhappy with the current direction of the show, and though their reasons are varied, they largely centre around unhappiness with the canon relationships, and a perceived destruction of their favourite characters because of them. A canon fan would doubtless disagree, and would feel about as comfortable on an Anti-Forum as a Nostalgic or Romantic Shenny feels on regular ones. So AT THE PRESENT TIME we don’t feel it advisable to sign up unless you classify yourself amongst the following categories; Nostalgics (fans of Seasons 1-4), Sheldonites/Sheldon Purists (fans of Vintage Sheldon and/or desirous that he remain romantically unattached), Romantic Shennys (advocates of a romantic relationship between S/P, either within Canon, or within a hypothetical parallel universe), Peldons/Platonic Shennys (values the comedic friendship of Sheldon and Penny OVER any other relationship on the show) Shelnards and Alternative Shippers of all varieties. This is not elitism, but in fact a collection of exiles from other forums. We welcome all who are not welcome elsewhere. Unless you’re not welcome elsewhere because you’re a pain in the proverbials. If you are some sort of bastardised hybrid of several categories, like most humans are, or exist in a unique category of your own, then we’ll leave it up to your judgement. For everybody else, of course, there is Tripper's wonderful creation, right here. Again, the forum part is irrelevant to the website. So all this rabbiting on I've been doing about Nostalgics and Koothranardowitzes is also irrelevant to the website, which we HOPE everyone will find amusing. Here and there anyway. Or just there, even. The Sheldon-Centric Episode Pages are a good place to start. They're wonderfully designed and largely Shenny-free, if the concept makes you twitch. They're also marvellously well-written (cough) by a couple of this forum's regulars (COUGH). Lastly, if you are violently antagonistic to any and all variations of S/P, rationality would suggest you don't look at the site, and civility would suggest you don't comment if you do. There's no point being a massive Dickensian about people being passionate about the same damn thing you're passionate about, just from a different perspective. It also makes you look like a tit.

First off let me just say that I love this show. It's my favorite show of all time. The plot lines are riveting, the characters are so developed, the lines are hilarious and genuine and the acting is amazing. I never get tired of watching TBBT. So I just joined this site today and this is my first post, so I apologize if someone else has already brought this up. I was watching clips from the show on youtube today and it occurred to me that Penny might be the most important character on the show. She shows up in the apartment building and things start to change. Without her, the guys would just continue to stay in the apartment playing video games and going to the comic book shop. Every growth the characters have made has been because of their interactions with Penny. Howard was always being creepy and sexist when trying to talk to women. He was always making sexual comments to Penny until one day she had enough and told him off. It crushed him to be called creepy and pathetic but it resonated with him. If Penny never got angry at him, he would have never changed. Things would never have worked out with him and Bernadette if he treated her like he treated Penny in the beginning. Penny is a strong enough character to ignore it and finally put him in his place and still be friends with him afterwards. Leonard and Penny's relationship was important as well because of Leonard being a doormat for women. He had to grow a lot as a person in order to have a serious relationship with Pria, even if it didn't work out. Penny doesn't always treat him the best but he has been starting to stand up for himself a lot and demand better treatment in his relationships with women. I don't think it works out with them because the spark just isn't there for Penny, but they will remain close friends. I really love the dynamic between Sheldon and Penny. There always seems to be a little chemistry between the characters. I think it's because Penny is the first person to stand up to Sheldon. He always walked all over the other guys whereas she stood up to him and gave him crap right back. She holds her ground with him even if they aren't intellectual equals so I think he respects her for that. I know a lot of people were wanting them to get together before Amy came along (and some still do) but I don't think they should. They just don't have enough in common. Penny and Sheldon have a special relationship. She gets him to open up to his emotional side like no one else really can. He gets over his aversion to human contact (somewhat) because of her. He shares things with her that he can't talk about to the other characters. He can be scared, hurt, and vulnerable with her. He becomes more human because of her. Without Penny, things would not work out with him and Amy. He's meant to be with Amy, but he'll always have a special place in his heart for Penny. I think the next big storyline will involve Penny helping Raj to get over his fear of talking with women so he can start to have adult relationships but I don't think she'll end up with Raj or Leonard long term. I don't want this show to end because it's brilliant but it will someday. I was trying to think of how it could end the best. I think a fitting endning would be that it's a few years down the road. Raj, Howard, Leonard, and Sheldon are all hanging out in the apartment with their wives/ girlfriends. They are all talking, joking, and laughing and having fun together. Penny opens the door and pauses in the doorway unnoticed. The camera zooms in to a close up of each couple for a second before moving onto the next couple. They are all smiling and in love. She still hasn't been noticed by anyone. She smiles to herself and quietly closes the door. In the hallway she pauses for just a second. She knows that she will always love them, but that she can't be a part of their lives anymore. She wipes away a tear, smiles, whispers "goodbye", and walks down the stairs. The end. I'd love to hear comments. I know my proposed ending is sad, but even though the show is a comedy, I don't think doing a funny ending would be doing the show justice after all that has happened. This is my favorite show and just pray the writers give it a great ending when the time does come to end the show.
I just put this under spoilers. I wasn't sure if it counted. I Added the Spoilers prefix this time. I loved watching a just PennyXSheldon episode. These two characters are so cute together. I think I would like to see more Shenny focused episodes even if its not PennyXSheldon dating. They really compliment each others personalities. Also noticed Amy pointed out the connection Penny and Sheldon share. I love what sheldon told the psychic. "Im clearly an annoying person and have problems with both genders".
