Nick, my biggest complaint against this particular crusade of yours is: Boy, you are giving them too much free publicity!   I mean, think about it: there must be.... what?..... about a dozen of them

This is a very interesting post and I agree. But I also think that this season is building toward a shift in this current paradigm. I think a large part of Penny's insecurities and this most recent

When the show started, Penny was an outside observer of the two nerds across the hall and their two friends, She was both mystified and amused about their strange world, she had her own friends and ac

Ever heard of a love hate relationship, I like Amy in small doses I just don't like a new character taking up space for the core cast members, I agree they need more scenes together even if just friends of course if I was producer of the show I would make sure there was at least one scence where they are together just because of their chemistry and Jim and Kaley, but I do think they're to gone in to Leonard/penny which is sad because they missed they're chance I just don't see the same chemistry than l/p have versus l/s which is kind of the mistake the couple have less chemistry than the one who doesn't find relationships necessary, but never say never but i just don't think it'll happen, i'd like Sheldon in a relationship if not with penny but with someone else I just don't see any attraction from Sheldon towards Amy(which can't blame him) they're trying to force this either bring in someone new or maybe someone like Martha who was totally into him and had the same intrests.

I don't think it will ever happen, I think they decided that at the end of season 4 when they had Penny and Raj sleep together. There could be no way that Penny would ever get involved with another of the 4 boys, it would just be wrong.

Why do you think they (the writers) would think it would be wrong for Penny to sleep with another of the 4 boys? They certainly didn't think it was wrong for her to sleep with Raj. Why not Sheldon as well?

I mean, I thought it was wrong (wrong, bizarre, awful, etc.) for Penny to sleep with Raj, but the ratings have been looking great so why wouldn't the writers have the characters do more wrong things? It might even boost the ratings further.

Given the comments that Amy has been making about hooking up with Penny I can even imagine they might be so bold as to have a story line where they have Penny, Sheldon and Amy in a three-way so Penny can teach them how things work.

Then there would be the inevitable moping by Howard becasue he wasn't invited.

And then in the next episode, it would be just like it never happened. Why all the fuss?

Yeah I agree about the raj it was just weird since she doesn't really know much about him except what the guys tell her, or when he's drunk which isn't him since he turns into a jerk,

I could see a penny/Sheldon/Amy three way it might be the only way she gets with penny and Sheldon would use it as "research" I could see Howard being upset he not joining on the fun and the only guy not to have been with penny, maybe he could convince Bernadette to talk to penny into having a penny/Howard/Bernadette threesome, I would watch that episode but I agree there probably would be no mention of it after that.

But I don't think raj ruined it for the possibility of a Sheldon/penny for one it wouldn't be a one time random hook up they would become a couple.

I just think they need to let go of the whole "Leonard and Penny" thing I just can't see Leonard with anyone other than Leslie winkle as they have been together ever since I started watching tv back when Roseanne was on, I still even watch that to this day.

Yes but if you've ever seen the finale of Roseanne, his character David wasn't really with Darlene. I rarely watched that show but the end was weird for me... :icon_confused: But once I saw her (sorry I don't know the actress's name) on BBT as Leslie, I was surprised but I don't see her as Darlene anymore. I also found it strange when they were together on BBT whereas I felt they were good together on Roseanne. Go figure.

Anyways, I liked Leonard and Penny but I think at this point, the writers would have to be careful if they brought them back together. In TV land too many shows tend to throw characters back together just so they make a nice comfortable ending. A reunion between the two should be natural instead of them just jumping back into bed.

I don't get how anyone can see Sheldon/Penny as a possibility. He has no respect for her and she finds him annoying. He is obtuse to her sexuality and has voiced his intention to never have sex. She obviously requires a sexual relationship. On what ground would they get together? They have absolutely nothing in common other than their relationship to Leonard. It was ridiculous to put Penny in bed with Raj. She wouldn't touch Howard with a 10 foot pole. She has never even hinted at having any kind of attraction to Sheldon. What in your mind would form a basis for a Sheldon/Penny relationship?

I agree with you if they did put Leonard/penny back together which I think they should just move on but if they did it should be natural of them back together, unlike how they forced it the first time when all of a sudden penny had feelings for him, he then goes to artic comes back she's in heat and proceds to jump him that's unnatural

for one why people what them together is because their scences are great together you can't say the same about hers with Leonard, he has said that she's attractive, she just teases him, he's becoming more human who did he go to for advice penny, they have the same in common as Leonard and her so what's the difference, plus opposites attract and she did flirt with him at his white board in the pilot. Plus he's surpressed his libidio not that he has no desires, because he doesn't want to be like Howard and Leonard thinking with their penis obsessed with sex he would want something bigger than that, relationship and love.


Not sure what Howard had anything to do with anything

I can say that Leonard and Penny scenes are great. Sheldon and Penny scenes are funny though.

One thing no one as ever been able to convince me about is why would Penny want to be with Sheldon? Sheldon thinks of her as a sub human to him. He constantly makes mean statements about his perceived notion that she lacks intelligence. He has basically called her a whore a number of times. He has no respect for her career. He doesn't care what is going on in her life. On the few occasions that Penny has tried to talk to Sheldon about how her day has gone he quickly stops her and says that it does not interest him.

How could Penny possibly want to be with someone who thinks and treats her this way?

He has not called her a whore, maybe if she had more respect for her self he wouldn't and Sheldon has changed towards her the fact that he changed his routine with her in mind and people say he treats her bad, I don't see that he does that anymore he's becoming a better person plus he thinks he's smarter than anyone else as why would she would want to becwith him would be is because she's attracted to him and couldn't imagine not being with him

This doesn't really answer my question and if you weren't trying to answer it that's okay and no big deal. :)

Yes being attracted to someone and not imagining to be without them is a reason to be with someone, however Penny has stated a number of times that she isn't attracted to him nor can understand how anyone could live with Sheldon. Why does she feel this way? I would say because of the way Sheldon treats and thinks of her and Sheldon is not shy about telling people what he thinks of them.

omg definitely! I think that would be hilarious, cute and awesome. Since the writers have already exhausted the "friend turned lover" scenario and the "drunk one nighter" maybe they can explore the idea of Penny being a surrogate mother to Shelly and Amy's bambino. The baby growing in her might give rise to him feeling differently. He'd be freaking out, journaling his feelings into a tape recorder and exploring this new concept. He may even rationalize it as a way to improve the efforts of behavioral sciences.

He has actually. Check out The Benefactor Factor.

He still has never used that word towards her

penny being a surrogate would be the worst idea ever, plus something she never ever would do, plus when she first found out about Amy and Sheldon was talking about kids she said she's not going to be his surrogate, now Sheldon and penny maybe but the surrogate just no.

What a horrifying thought. If they ever run this, that would be the last episode I would ever watch.

I think the idea of sheldon and penny in any sort of relationship would ruin the whole concept of the show, but perhaps an arkward encounter, involving the sexual nature? or penny tries to teach him how to kiss, or something along the lines of that..

I hope nothing big does go on between the two, because it would ruin the amazing idea of sheldon himself.

I love the idea of Sheldon and Penny but don't want it to actually happen in the show, if that makes sense. Both Sheldon and Penny would require enormous growth in order for it to happen, and the needed growth would destroy what makes the characters so funny.

The ratings are still good but they got huge amount of negative feedback from fans over the decision to have Penny and Raj have a one night stand.

Why do you think they clearly backtracked on it in the season five premiere? Let's not kid ourselves here. If the fan reaction wasn't so largely negative over this event you can bet that it would have been revealed that they had in fact had sex.

Romantic chemistry and comedic chemistry are two different things and don't always go together. Penny and Sheldon have great comedic chemistry but that comedic chemistry wouldn't automatically translate into romantic chemistry. People mistakenly believe that these two always go together. The thing about Sheldon/Penny scenes that make them so memorable is because there isn't based in romantic sexual tension.

Sheldon doesn't fully respect Penny and most likely never will due to her lack of high intelligence. This is the reason why they had to create Amy's character. Sheldon values intellect more than any other attribute. Amy is both highly intelligent and shares a lot of Sheldon's quirks which makes them compatible as a pairing.

I think the idea of Penny and Sheldon together is ridiculous! They obviously have on screen chemistry, but this is usually due to their conflict and lack of respect for each other, rather than any compatibility they may have - besides, it would probably destroy their relationship with Leonard in the process.

I think the writers have been very clever with the introduction of Amy - they are bringing Sheldon through a delayed adolescence one step at a time. She is the only person he seems to enjoy spending time with and conversing with - he merely tolerates everyone else. Her blatant desire for physical contact is what is going to force Sheldon to 'grow up' and if he ever does have an intimate encouter with anyone it would have to be as much intellectual as physical. He is only starting to face the fact that Amy has become important to him and that he may well be more emotionally attached to her than he realised - I can't wait to see how this impacts on his character - bring it on!

I do agree with the majority of you about the grenade that was Penny/Raj - they could have come up with a better way to end season 4, surely?? What was the point?? Did it advance the characters? No! (Raj still can't talk to her sober). Did it advance the storyline? No. There appeared to be no consequences, and they backtracked to say that it never happened anyway, so in my opinion it was a waste of time. But I suppose even the best have off days!

I really want to see Penny and Leonard together and I don't see any way to avoid it eventually since the seeds for them were sown in the very first episode and have been sprinkled throughout all since.

I'm sorry, but no.

They're not canon. And never will be. I can get that some people like this couple a lot, but I can't see why as Sheldon is 'dating' Amy, and Penny still likes Leonard. And I really don't think people should pair Sheldon with anyone at all, strictly speaking. He's almost a child when it comes to relationships.


It seems everyone has an opinion of their own on the coupling and shipping of the characters in the show. My personal opinion is that things should be kept real... Leonard and Penny have obvious chemistry and have done since the beginning of the show, and in the first season, the show was centred around the two. I like the pairing of Sheldon and Amy, but not really in a girlfriend/boyfriend kind of way, and Sheldon is clearly not comfortable with that kind of thing, and only because the two seem to understand each other. I also like Howard/Bernadette, for some reason. It's canon, and kinda sweet, because she's the first girl who has been able to make Howard, I don't know, more mature, in a way? It's quite cute, anyway, seeing as they're both so small. :3
