The Shamy Thread! (Season 6 Edition-Spoilers)

I honestly think if they let Jim and Mayim loose they'd be sizzling and burn the other couples. They are so flirty in the interviews, they have great chemistry.  But of course I also don't think that they'll ever get L/P daring with S/A, that's not the kind of couple they are. However, I do think that when it gets closer to "the possibility" (and I'm talking S8/9 here) there is a chance we'll get to see some more "grown-up" displays of affection between them. Even just as a one-off.

 

I cannot get enough of Perv!Kripke. I just rewatch for my Shamy fix tbh. 

 

LOL! Kripke is also a Shamy shipper now. Penny and Kripke are honorary Sharmy members.

BTW, thank you all who participated in the Cooper/Kripke episode thread, putting the negative Nancy's in their place. I never know what to say because it just has gotten so old. LOL...but you are all great at saying what we're all thinking and feeling. 

 

I especially like the point that Spook made (I think it was Spook) about they spend more time complaining instead of talking about the science, etc. that they say there's not enough of. Perhaps if they started more positive threads about the stuff they DO like, it would send more positive vibes out to everyone, including the writers.

Glad to, but from now on I'm staying out of it.  I don't want to contribute to the negativity by calling them out on it.  I refuse to let anything associated with TBBT be anything other than a joyful part of my life.

 

Meanwhile, I can't stop watching last week's episode.  There's so much to absorb, but the thing I can't get over is that Sheldon WANTED to be held!  He has tolerated physical contact before but this time he essentially asked (once Amy pulled away) to be held.  This was not even a quick squeeze, but a legitimate cuddle.  Every time I think about it, I just melt.

 

<48 hrs to the next taping.  :)

Yeah, I TRY to stay away from that kinda stuff myself. Let them bitch and whine about it all the want, that's their fault and their problem. 

 

Anyway, I agree. GREAT episode. I must have watched it about 8 times now....probably gonna watch it again soon. LOL.

 

Yes, the next taping is almost upon us!

Do you think this will be the one with Raj getting a girlfriend?  I hope so, though some sort of Shamy scene would be nice to see too.  Kate Micucci is so cute, glad it's her.  Another permanent cast member is too much, but I hope she sticks around for a few episodes.

I was actually wondering what the episode will be about myself. I have no clue. I guess we will find out the day after tomorrow! I will be sure to let you guys know the MOMENT I leave the studio (if I get in) before Kyzzx does the report :)

You guys are so generous to let us know what happens and put all that effort into it.

 

I've always wondered (and now it occurs to me that you might know), how do they do video chat scenes?  Are the two sides taped at different times, or are the participants able to see and hear one another in real time?  I would assume they were taped separately but in an outtake from Cruciferous Vegetable, Kaley hit a bad note singing Soft Kitty and it looked like Jim on the monitor reacted to it.

You're right. It's in real time :-). The 2nd taping I ever went to, The Transporter Malfuction, I got to see how it works when Raj speaks to his parents on his laptop. The actors who play his parents are actually in another room some where doing the scene from their end.

My pleasure.

Thanks for the info, Monique!  It's so cool to hear these things from someone who has been there.  I would love to go but I live on the east coast and, as a college professor, my school schedule coincides with just about all the tapings.  Besides, the thought of driving around an area that is unfamiliar and has heavy traffic is very intimidating.  If I could get my flight-phobic hubby to go with me, it would certainly be cool to visit CA.  I've gotten him watching TBBT also.  We agree on almost everything.  He likes the Shamy too, and even said "Awww!" out loud during the hug scene this week.  He's very sensitive; he doesn't like when people on TV are funny-mean (like on Married...with Children, for example), so he likes the gentle sweetness of Shamy.  The one place we disagree is that he thinks Bernadette is mean, whereas I think she's just adorable when she's angry.

 

I'll leave the question of the separate website to other contributors.

Awwww, your hubby sounds adorable. Haha. Hopefully you both will be able to come to Cali one day and go to a taping :-) 

 

 

eirwinrommel, well, if you check out the fanfiction part of this forum, there's a start. LOL. In one of the threads, there's even a list that Sursonica posted of some great stories :)

I read somewhere around here that 6x18 is about Raj's first date with the girl, so not sure what 6x17 will be about.

 

Re: the negativity, my pleasure to serve :) I also try to stay away from those threads and ignore negative posts but sometimes I just need to say something, some posts really irk me.

I think I remember Mayim talking about doing the video chat scenes and doing them in real time.

I've missed pages of this thread, what with internet problems in the last few days.

 

I'm sure it's been discussed in detail already... the hug was so supremely sweet and satisfying. I thought it was done in a perfect way, with the combination of Amy's genuine concern, Sheldon's awkwardness, grief and familiar over-the-top crying.. I loved how he actually calmed down in Amy's arms. :wub: And then the 'why did you stop' and reaching out to pat her.. I could watch it again and again forever.

 

 

tmp - it's great to know you can share the pleasure of the show and Shamy with your hubby! :)

Same here. It gets irritating sometimes, and can't be completely avoided because they're episode threads and one wants to post there.

My husband really likes it too.. in fact, he watched it before I did.  Of course he's not into it as much as me, but he loves the shamy and doesn't understand when I tell him that there are people that don't.  He gets mad at me when I try to hint at spoilers because he doesn't want to know.  In the last episode, when sheldon began to say that kripke's work was better than his,  my hubby turned to me with shock on his face, lol.  It's fun to watch him experience the new episodes without any knowledge of what's going to happen.

 

He doesn't know about my crush on jim, though, lol!   :icon_redface:

 

He knows I'm writing a fanfic, but I haven't decided yet if I'm going to let him read it.  He likes the show, but he's a guy... and doesn't really get into romance and love stories as much as me.  I'm scared he will make fun of it, lol.

 

We've been married almost 20 years.  He likes the show because he has many of the traits of Sheldon and the guys.  I wouldn't call him a genius, but he's very smart, and different... and into things that most people aren't. And... he still likes the shamy too.  So there are guys out there that like both aspects of the show!

I love the hug scene, amy knows sheldon is touch phobic and she respectfully asked him first and the why did you stop is similar to the I'm in hell dont stop scene :)

 

To me it's different from "I'm in hell.  Don't stop."  He was confused and hurt when she pulled away at that comment.  It didn't sound like he thought the boa constrictor comment was a complaint.

Yeah, I also think he was just saying what was on his mind, like he always does, and didn't realize she would take it as a rejection. I don't think it's in the same vain as the "I'm in hell" thing. Like I said a while ago, as much as Amy is more open to physical contact she has no clue what she's doing either, she always strangles him every single time she hugs him.
