annieogly Posted October 14, 2012 Posted October 14, 2012 Gosh there's so much; it's funny how worked up people get about this topic..hmm interesting Let me just re-iterate. The show belongs to Chuck Lorre; he can do whatever he wishes & the writers obey. And I'm sure CL is attentive to the fans Also there has been no attempt to measure via ratings the fan popularity of Shenny vs. Shamy so there is no data to support either side. And yes if CL wanted there to be Shenny all the writers would have to do is have Penny say she said all those pro-Shamy things in order to support her friend as she felt so guilty having feelings for Sheldon. Easy-peasy. Not terribly hard. One of the problems with tv is as Doug said the joke comes first. At the end of season 3 when Sheldon is betrayed by the ruse of the electric can-opener. The writers meant it to be a funny prank. But really if you're looking at the psychology of the characters; Sheldon would probably have a breakdown, Leonard, Howard & Raj would be fired for creating fraudulent data and ruining Caltech's reputation. That can't happen so it becomes a 'joke' and glossed over. This is where the writers lost me in terms of investing in the characters. This is the problem of tv comedy, characters don't/can't have the consistant psychological background of a character in a novel Finally: literature, movies, tv are all subjective! That's why literature lasts as each new generation finds something in the text, perhaps something the author didn't even intend. Doesn't matter. So while the Shamy-ites never understand the Shenny-ites and visa-versa; It's not a problem because there is no objective answer. I did wonder how the writers would drive the Shamy & they keep re-using Amy threatening to dump Sheldon if he doesn't yield. Tiresome; how often can they do that?
