As long as he had a holster low-slung across his hips, I wouldn't care what else he wore, if anything... :p

Mm. His cowboy look (and stride) was seriously distracting. :)

Greek philosophers didn't wear togas: Roman citizens did. I didn't like sexy cop as it's so trashy; this year Penny is supposed to mature. If the writers wanted the 'in' joke: Albert Einstein as a horndog who has sex in a time machine (instead of inventing one), they could have dressed Penny as Marilyn Monroe or some other actress who is an icon of sexuality.

Actually I think Jim could play many of Jimmy Stewart's roles; he was excellent in Westerns.

I think the maturing of Penny starts in earnest with the next episode where she enters college. So far the "maturing" of Penny in the first five eps were driven mainly by her friends showing her her immature attitudes. Now, she picks up the ball from here.

The sexy cop costume is not the most revealing thing our girl has worn. Some of her little tops in Season 3 were little more than tissue paper. She was quite covered up compared to that. I see a definite change in the way they are dressing her.

Oh, his little Texas twang! I love it when he uses it on purpose, but I love it even more when you hear traces of it when it's unintentional. :D

Always! It's extra special because it carries a Sheldon flavor as well as a Jim flavor. :)

I think that the maturing of Penny actually started in the latest episode when she went to Leonard's lab and he showed her the holograph that he was working on. I think that up to then she really liked him, thought that he was a great guy, but didn't really respect him and what he did. That changed in the lab. She was both enchanted with what he did and sexually excited by it. That was demonstrated by her second visit to his lab. As for her costume, I really don't see what is the problem that some people have with it. I was not overly revealing and even if Penny is maturing she is still a very attractive woman who is not hesitant to show it. I believe that the episode has driven the final nail in the coffin for all of those who hold the unrealistic hope that Sheldon and Penny will ever get together. Penny is hooked on Leonard, and is now more then happy with their relationship.

Oh, I only hope this never will happen! This will spoil the program forever :icon_rolleyes: It will look like those old American films for teenagers where the beautiful /cool girl always get the main (in my opinion, more lovely) character. And, if one day Sheldon becomes interested in a girl like Penny then means this program changed so much that will be the opposite it was and Sheldon will be a character totaly different he is now :icon_rolleyes:

Well Doug started it saying Amy and Penny were like Betty and Veronica, which made me think of high school and the writers plainly stated it in the last episode. Amy and Sheldon are going through high school adolescence so hormones, curiosity etc. I thought the writers were going to make Shamy sweet romance; obviously not...Was very surprised at Sheldon's saying he may have to cut Amy loose. Doug you were more precient; the Shamy just may go under; certainly L/P are breaking up and who knows maybe we will have Shenny - after Sheldon has had his adolescence. Interesting!

Are you psychic now? You know for a fact that Leonard and Penny are breaking up?

I wonder if you'd be willing to bet real money on these ridiculous predictions. Go ahead, I dare you...

Ha. I remember some shenny shippers from tumblr always mocking shamy shippers there, saying, "Let's see in two years who's crazy." Yeah, we're crazy.

Let's wait for that thirty-year old man get his adolescent hormones kicking in and let him chase the popular one, since these writers seem to be following that trope.

NOT!

I don't think you need to be a psychic to guess Leonard and Penny are gonna "break up" at some point in the future, they are the main couple, and one of the big questions of the show is "are they gonna end up together or not?", even if it's a given they will, the producers and writers are gonna play with them until the very end, I'm sure.

Now, Sheldon and Amy are a completely different story, the questions with them are: "when are they gonna become physical?", "how will robo-Sheldon face his newlyfound romantic feelings and the 'burden' of being a boyfriend?"

If Sheldon is going through and "adolescent" phase, it's because of Amy, she is the one who is (as Leonard said) making him having a romantic (and maybe even sexual) awakening, not his hot blonde neighbor and friend. Nerdy, plain and quirky Amy is his "vixen", yes he is THAT weird, Seriously, why are you so interested in making Sheldon go for the stereotype (go after the hot girl, just as all of his horndogs of friends) instead of letting him be himself and fall in love with someone truly special, someone he is the only one he can appreciate for what she is?

Amy is not "stepping point" for Sheldon, she is his one and only, she was created specifically with that objective, they were not just two randomly paired characters, and the best part is: they are a goldmine, they are loved by both, critics (enough to earn awards nominations) and audience (just make a quick search and see how many couples dressed up as Shamy for Halloween) , the show's creators are not gonna destroy their winner formula, they may play with them, even separate them for a while, but that separation will be very short and maybe just an excuse to force Sheldon realize how much she means to him.

Annie, Annie, Annie, I wouldn't advice you to bet against Phantagrae, but it's your decision ;)

And I don't know how spoiled you are, but we won't have to wait that long (two years), just wait to next episode and (despite his angry words spilled in the middle of a childish fit) find out how "eager" is Sheldon to break up with his GF :icon_razz:

I know fanon shippers have to find "hints" in the most ridiculous stuff to keep their hope alive, but I hope for their own good, they are not taking this too seriously and are mentally prepared to resist constant dissapointment.

Seriously, sometimes they complaint and ask why the animosity towards them, here's my answer (from my point of view and pardon my correctly censored french): They are so f***ing annoying! with their refusal to ackowledge their ship is strictly fanon, they could enjoy the moments their preferred characters spend together, and imgine they are in love, and write all the fanfiction they want, and chat with others that share their liking, but why do they have to spoil the fun with their obsession in "making it canon", or that it's, in fact, canon? and they are also extremely mean to the characters that "come in the way" (the hate they have for Leonard and, to a minor degree, for Amy, borders psychotic), and the worst feature some of them have, as someone in this forum have mentioned before: their tendency to harrass and even attack the show's writers and actors. Once I read a, lets call her: "very offended" fan, saying she wanted "to beat the crap out of those stupid writers with an iron bat!" not to mention those who use to viciously attack Mayim, in message boards, video and articles' comments section and even in her own FB page.

So, gals, no, some of us don't get all worked up in topics like this one because we are "afraid" of all the hints that show your ship is unequivocally "about to happen", it's because of the disgusting attitude some of you (I know, not everyone of you) display.

Oh I'm willing! Not money (I won't take your hard-earned gold :icon_lol: ) But I'll challenge you the time period is ; until the end of this season + next season's 7 opening. If I loose you get to give me a giant "neiner, neiner' & I'll put it in my sig from you & if I win you must use 'Oh, I informed you thusly. I so informed you thusly.' in your sig from me for the entire year.

if only 1/2 of the couples break up then it's sigs for 6 mos.

Deal? :icon_twisted:

Frankly, I wasn't talking about betting you directly, but if you want to take the bet, go ahead. I could probably come up with a better signature declaration--I'll think about it.

I was just wondering how sure you are about your so-called prescience. Especially in light of things that Prady and Lorre have said.

Just because they are the main couple doesn't mean they are going to break up in the future. On again/Off again isn't the only established way that main couple are written in sitcoms are any other style of show for that matter. People just seem to asume that just because a couple has issues from time to time that it automatically portends a break up in the future. That's not how the writers are writing them this time around, they are still giving L/P issues but unlike before they are getting over these humps intact as a couple. That's not how you do things if the intention is breaking them up. A couple of years ago the incident that happened in this episode along with some of the other ones that happened earlier and toward the end of season five would most likely ended their relationship. The writers are going about this differently than they have in the past.

Sheldon and Amy are written in a way in which their relationship prorgesses but does so at a very slow place, theoritically they could probably drag it out to the very end I think it's highly probable that they will.

Well I enjoy a fun challenge but if it's not your cup of tea, we can drop it. But I'll leave the challenge out there for anyone else if they like :icon_razz: I didn't say I was prescient; it was Doug. I give credit where credit is due. But I'm more than willing to stand by my words.

cheers

Phantagrae I gave you Stephen Hawkings's classic neiner neiner to Sheldon !

I very serioulsy doubt that Penny and Leonard will break up again. They may hit rough spots. They may have periods of times where one is angry with the other. They may even have one or the other being hit on or attracted to someone else. But I think that the whole Penny and Leonard breaking up thing has been done to death, and if for some strange reason they do have it happen, there is NO WAY that they would have Penny hooking up with Sheldon, not even in a dream sequence unless it was Penny having a nightmare.

You are right. There is not likely to be a L/P breakup and the writers are telegraphing this to the fans through each episode this season. Almost all the episodes are about re-showing all the stress points over the last five years and demonstrating that the partner who causes their crack ups, Penny, now handles the bumps more maturely. This started with the way she handled the "will you marry me" fiasco at the end of season five.

So far we have seen:

- Episodes 1&2; Penny gets pressure from Leonard to address her feeling for him. She almost opts for another breakup but decides to stay with him.

- Episode 3; Penny is faced with a possible rival and decides she wants to play keep away with him.

- Episode 4; Penny is completely integrated into the game night game culture with her boyfriend. His world is now hers.

- Episode 5; Penny's silly "Leonard is there to make me happy" philosophy is challenged and she discovers much to her delight, why she wants Leonard in her life.

- Episode 6; Penny faces her biggest obstacle, her feeling of inferiority to Leonard because of their education levels. Her handling is a work in progress but unlike season two, she gets mad but does not even consider a breakup.

The only thing left now is for her to address the "I Love You" issue and her fear of a smarter, more successful woman taking Leonard's attention away from her like Priya did. Those are future stress points to be addressed so there are going to be bumps for them. But Penny causing a breakup is not going to happen. The writers could have Leonard be the one to start a breakup but that would betray the entire history and development of his character. He is a one woman man and the woman is Penny.

What is it that Prady and Lorre have said about the L/P relationship?
