Voice changes

Recommended Posts

Is it me or Sheldon and Penny sounded differently in the first season? Sheldon was speaking normally and he wasn't trying as hard to sound like a child. Penny's voice was soft and she was pretty much whispering in some parts, she seemed more relax back then, the way she talks now annoys me, she kind of speaks like a dude now.

Every now and then, I've found Sheldon's vocal tone changes a little bit. Kinda goes a bit deeper than normal.

Just the odd word or two, then it goes back to "Sheldon range".

Voices, in reality, change with situtations and that's how I view it in the show. Its easier to hear with female voices than male ones. If a female is excited about something her voice may be higher when she is talking or if she is shy or nervous, which I bet Penny would be in the first couple of episodes- meeting her neighboors and asking for a favor already, her voice may be quiter. I think now that Penny is comfortable around the whole gang she just talks in her normal pitch which is a bit lower than expected.

A few times I thought my ear were deceiving me, but no, Sheldon's/Jim's voice does got down an octave every so often, and its not just in Season 1 either.

You're right about Penny, but it's not just her voice, her character has changed dramatically since season 1. She's gone from bubbly and kind of ditz-y, to sarcastic and occasionally violent. lol

I always felt like Raj sounded progressively more Indian as the seasons went on.

I also agree with realworld, people have different voices they use for different things. I have my family voice, my hanging out with friends voice, my work voice, being a manager firm voice, bubbly voice, etc. They just happen. I always just thought it made the show a little more realistic to me.
