BIG SUGGESTION WHY NOT START A NEW SPOILER THREAD FOR EACH EPISODE? THIS THREAD IS WAY TO LONG AND CONFUSING.

Good idea but also not a good idea. It is our jobs to come in here after each taping and stay caught up. It's a "you snooze, you lose" kinda deal. LOL.

I take the spanking scene as a restitution for the omission of Jim slapping Mayim's butt at the taping of The Launch Acceleration. Having in mind that Mayim was wearing the Star Trek uniform when that happened, I don't think it's enough, but it is something.

Don't forget 'The Plimpton Stimulation' where there was the discussion of a foursome. Also last year Amy had that massive girl crush or was it more, a bisexual crush on Penny. I thought the former but with the spanking now the latter. What do I think, I think the writers want a way to break up Amy with Sheldon but have Amy do it. So how do they do it? As so far she's got the boyfriend she always dreamed of. Sex, and her wanting it & her being an overtly sexual being is the motivation that would work.

The crush on Penny was for laughs. The same way the Raj/Howard gay undertones are for laughs. Or is Howard soon going to break up with Bernadette because Raj feels lonely and Bernadette is forcing him out of his mommy's house?

Amy is not showing ANY signs of being frustrated with her current relationship situation, as of yet. All we're being shown is that she's having fun milking situations to her advantage. Key words = having fun.

And, even IF they were to break up, it isn't going to be a definite break up. It's going to be just a plot device to push their relationship forward. And a lame one at that.

Hey Krys! *hug*. According to different reports on people who went to the taping of The Launch Acceleration, when they were shooting the last scene and before Mark said action, Jim reportedly slapped Mayim's butt real hard while he was lying on the couch and she was standing next to him. Jim, Mayim & the whole crew bursted into laughing so hard they had to stop the taping for a few minutes so everybody could get back into character.

A lot of us were expecting that to be included on S5's Blooper Reel but it didn't happen :(

Now that I think about it.. couldn't the spanking scene be at least in a certain degree derived from Jim's impulse that day? I mean, Jim is usually very professional and polite and not one to be goofing around on set so I can see how that action could have influenced the writers into thinking about Sheldon and butt-slapping as well.

Don't get upset about Annieogly's comments. She is just having a little fun with the fans of the canon couples (L/P, S/A and sometimes H/B). She is a dedicated fan of a possible Sheldon/Penny relationship and likes to declare breakups of the Shamy and Lenny coming after most episodes. You'll notice most of the regulars here don't respond anymore except in the "Penny and Sheldon, Maybe?" thread which has become our official Shenny discussion place.

She's just having a little fun like most of us fans, just with a different analysis of every action shown in the relationships.

As I've posted many times I love this season, they've done a great job with the science, nerdy stuff, made classic episodes, totally worthy of seasons 1-3. Only maybe 2 bad ones. I don't watch for the L/P ship, I instead enjoy it in fanfic. I do like to analyze what the writers are doing, make a prediction and see if I'm correct. It's an exercise, a very helpful one in plotting and where you place clues and cues. I do see rocky times ahead, but the show is first and foremost a comedy and not a romantic show and comedy thrives on conflict.

I really don't enjoy everyone's disappointment, because they're invested in the couples. I'll just point out for those hoping for romance with these 2 couples: has any part of this season shown romance with them; that's usually the tell...

OMG I am so laughing really hard right now...

I remember the draught when most of the gals from LG were already offering harvests to deities for them to include that TLE Buttslap in the gagreel. You know Yani, I never thought of it that way. What I only thought of that time is that now, Jim's buttslapping would not only be in a taping report history but would really be on the show.

You're right , they both were done for laughs

But IMO the extent to which they showed Amy crushing on Penny.... instead of generating laughs was just too uncomfortable to watch

Raj/Howard gay undertones were never uncomfortable to watch..... just take the scene in 43 peculiarity --- where Raj presses his face against the door facing Howard ---- it was naively cute...and almost all their scenes were like this

And Raj always used to get angry when someone else mentioned that he was crushing on Howard (like in the scene where Leonard mentions that Raj is going to have Howard's babies)

Yes it depends on the reactions those kind of actions get...but still Penny and Howard always responded in the same way to those kind of comments(they both feel uncomfortable)

Same goes to spanking scene also...it would have been really gross if they showed us that

And is it in character for a guy like Sheldon to suggest spanking as a punishment.. I get that he meant nothing sexual (but the writers meant :p)....but given his character I assumed he would think of something like a strike or if he wanted something physical then something like a slap in the face (minimum contact - maximum impact) :p

I think it's safe to say that being that we all come from all over the place, what's comfortable is different for all of us.

All the above mentioned things are in no way uncomfortable to me. Amy hitting on Penny? It's funny. Howard & Raj? It's funny. Sheldon slapping Amy's behind? It's funny.

I can't help but wonder though: are some of the things that are making us uncomfortable stemming from certain insecurities/phobias we may have deep within us? For example, my mom kind of got creeped out once when Amy first kissed Sheldon simply because Jim is gay in real life. Seriously?? LOL. What is it REALLY that is making us uncomfortable?

Interesting. So did you mother get uncomfortable when Amy kissed Penny? I would think that would have creeped her out more than Amy kissing Sheldon if she was uncomfortable with gayness. :icon_neutral: I agree with you though, these discomforts are probably because of something within. I am with you, Amy crushing on Penny was obnoxious in a way, yet still funny. Why? Because I see her as a girl who is clueless when it comes to social things and she was trying to hard to be accepted and liked by the beautiful, popular girl (her dream since youth). Mayim just knows how to make things funny. Raj/Howard, again funny because it just is, especially because Kunal and Simon play it so well. The spanking, amusing because we know it is done tastefully and also because we know Sheldon has not a clue, but is following a childhood punishment protocol. :icon_biggrin:

Wow. It certainly does. I know someone who's a firm Christian and is uncomfortable with the possibility of Sheldon having sex in the future. People are hating on the show because they do not like the fact a gay actor is playing a straight one (big talk for some of them, especially the fact that NPH is also gay and they also claim they love that show), and some people are uncomfortable with the Raj/Howard (and even Raj/Stuart) thing because homoeroticism or hints of it is uncomfortable to them too. Are we now making psychoanalysis in here too?

It is a general observation I've made that homosexuality between men even though still not as widely accepted is more tolerable for the general audience than homosexuality between women. There are a lot of men gay characters on tv nowadays... the lesbian characters.. I could count them with one hand. So I think that to a degree that is one of the reasons why such a big number of the same people who is really OK with homosexual jokes betwwen Raj/Howard are not OK at all when it was done with Penny/Amy. And I think that most of them don't realize.

In my case, I'm not bothered in any of the two. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I am bisexual myself, I come from a family who has never had any qualms about sex whatsoever, (even my grandmother has always spoken openly about sex) and I come from a country that is much more liberal regarding those things than the US (I can say that since I have lived in the US for years too), for example, here, "gay marriage" or, just marriage, because there is no distiction is legal in the whole territory and they have exactly the same rights as heterosexual couples.. so is not a big deal. I have a lot of homosexual friends and my fiancee was dating a guy when I met him... now we are engaged so. maybe that's why I have no problem with it? It most surely is.

I got no problem with any themes from the show so far (or maybe I'm forgetting something?) and that I came from a strictly catholic family and my parents being originally homophobics and that they're just starting to warm up to the idea that they will be here no matter how much they cringe. And it seems that Mayim, being an orthodox Jewish, isn't disturbed by what her character is doing and that she even understands where she's coming from. It all just comes down with a persons's past experiences and morals and such.

Though, when someone destroyed the shamy tag in tumblr posting badly photoshopped images depicting posterior-slapping screenshots from porn videos, it bordered disturbing.That, that thing is disturbing.

In the case of the suggestion of a slap in the face being more "in character" for Sheldon I disagree. A slap in the face has a totally different connotation. While a slap in the butt could be interpreted as funny/sexual/innocent/double-meaning/cheeky a slap in the face ALWAYS has the connotation of hate and or/ betrayal. That would have been just absolutely mean and tbh I think it would be something that would make Sheldon absolutely hated, even by the people who love him most. A slap in the face, is just not acceptable. Now that I think about it, if they would have made him slap Amy in the face, not only would cry but also I would absolutely stop watching the show.
