phantagrae Posted June 12, 2013 Posted June 12, 2013 Look I think this thread has just about run its course. Unless someone has a new angle. I don't mind those that, don't understand the subtelties of the language. Not many people, are as pedantic about the language they use as I am(and I still make mistakes). But it's frankly boring, because other people, misinterpret the obviously stated, and then hurl abuse, based on their misunderstanding. Just to clarify, Bangermain, couples get together through interaction. Looking at L, and the way he acts when a new woman comes close. It would be easier to list the signs, that don't scream, needy, desperate, and possessive. My other supposition, was based on the idea that the show was designed as a vehicle for JG, and when they got KC onboard, the arc of the show was envisioned. I was merely playing with this idea, and wondering how that arc would have progressed, had things been different. For example, if they had employed a feed back loop, and had modified the story, when they saw the interaction between JP and KC, and more importantly the audience reaction to it. Also JP has been rightly lauded, and awarded, for his comic acting ability. This may have prompted them to change the focus of the show. All supposition! It is indeed only a supposition on your part, and an erroneous one, because the show was not designed as a vehicle for JG, and KC was not hired until the original pilot was reworked. JG and JP were in their roles from the beginning and the female character may or may not have been seen as a potential love interest for Leonard, since she was generally a horrible person. But even in that original pilot, Sheldon was not interested in the female lead (though he was not a virgin as he is in the version that went forward.) And even once they reworked the original pilot into the one that finally aired, KC auditioned and was rejected about 3 times before she was finally hired, so it isn't as if they got JG and KC together and then figured out the rest of the characters. It was JG and JP as L&S first, then everyone else was developed and cast. While the use of the characters and the nature of their interactions was likely developed as the producers watched the interaction of the characters/actors and began to learn their strengths, etc., the idea of Leonard and Penny as a couple was always there as a through-line and there was never a consideration of any of the other guys being paired with her. I do think it's true that they realized the potential for rivalry or antagonism between Sheldon and Penny, and then a begrudging friendship because they are the most polar opposite on the show and most likely to have conflict--but that doesn't mean that there was ever any romantic potential. As for people not understanding the language, that's probably one of the stupidest things you could say--and I'm not calling you, yourself, stupid, just your conclusions. Just because people disagree with you and think that you're arrogant and wildly mistaken doesn't mean that they're not grasping the subtleties of "the language." I haven't seen anyone misunderstanding what you're saying. They're simply disagreeing with your skewed analysis. It's extremely arrogant of you to assume that people don't understand simply because they disagree. Maybe it's you who is misunderstanding the subtleties of the language of the show itself.
