The Shamy Thread! (Season 6 Edition-Spoilers)


Recommended Posts

I'm going to try to dig it up because I don't remember. 

 

No need to go to the trouble on my account.  I was just wondering if anyone happened to remember.

 

A couple of thoughts from the promo.  1) Yes, there's definitely on-screen chemistry between Jim and Mayim.  That was almost smoldering.  2) Wow, Johnny looks nice in that outfit!  :icon_redface:   3) There are a lot of reasons I don't watch 2 1/2 men, and that part of the promo reminds me of many of them.  Manscaping--yuck!

Before we bid adieu to this thread, I think we should take a moment to just gaze at how big this thread is. There are more posts in this thread than there are in Seasons 1-5 boards combined. This thre

So much shameless Shamyness! :)

 

Thanks for the promo video--that hug is hilarious! :icon_eek:

 

I'm so looking forward to the episode.  VD isn't a day I usually care about--as we used to say in our Singles class at church, "February 14th is just another day..." :p

But having this BBT ep to look forward to will make it a nice evening. :D

 

I had a concert this weekend and I had some downtime during rehearsals because there were 4 or 5 numbers I didn't play on, so, as is often my custom, I used the time to do a little writing.  I've started a little fic about a Sheldon-initiated kiss.  I might be able to finish it tonight. :wub:

 

With all the great stuff we've seen this sweeps period, I'm almost a little scared at what they might have in mind for the May sweeps!  I do think that we might see some kind of Sheldon-initiated something, whether it's a hug or a little kiss or some other kind of movement.

Or they may really surprise us.

 

I also wish we could see Mary Cooper this season.  I think I've mentioned it before (or maybe it was at the other forum), but I'm curious about Sheldon having to reconcile his mother/child relationship with his mother and his more "manly", for lack of a better word, relationship as a boyfriend with Amy.

As recently as last season, in The Rhinitis Revelation, before he and Amy became bf/gf, he was trying to come up with a scenario that would allow him to remain a child in relation to his mother.  She was telling him he was a grown man and he was saying that maybe he was a different kind of being that lived for 100s of years, so that he was still a toddler.

 

But now that he's "matured", if you will, and has moved forward into a relationship, can he still have the childish relationship with his mother?  Is he starting to outgrow his need for her?  Or, if she were to come to town, would he be torn between his new role as a boyfriend and his old pattern of being a child?

How would his mother feel?  How would Amy react?

 

Last time we saw Mary with Amy, she was happy to get Sheldon and Amy to mend their relationship, and Sheldon does seem to keep his mother up-to-date with the goings-on in Pasadena, but it's not clear how much he might be sharing with his mother about his relationship with Amy.  I imagine that he must have told her that they've become bf/gf, and I figure she's probably happy about that.

But I wonder how she'd feel about him turning to Amy more--would she be happy or maybe have a twinge of anxiety at her baby needing her less.

 

I've also wanted to see a Mary Cooper/Beverly Hofstadter clash over their respective sons, given the crossing of appreciation between the boys and their moms.  Leonard admires Mary and Sheldon admires Beverly, but what would it be like with both of them there at the same time?

 

I don't know that we'll get to see the moms this season, though. *sigh*

As much as I love Sheldon relying more and more on Amy (making her his EC!), I still love Baby!Sheldon and him's mama! :p

Our resident psychologist Meg on FF had analyzed Amy and Sheldon for signs of love and she devised conclusively that they were in love. It'll be hard to dig up the post...it was really really long.

Interesting take on the relationship. Makes one wonder if the writers are aware what they are doing or if this is all a coincidence.

Aah, I remember that! A really interesting psychological analysis of The Shamy. As to whether the writers are aware of what they are doing...sure. They're definitely doing certain things on purpose so that we are gradually seeing progression in their relationship. I doubt they are using those specific criteria for 'romantic love' on purpose, it's just a happy coincidence.  :wub:

Thank you so much!  Since that was written in October, we've seen plenty of additions to the list.  Off the top of my head, I would say he's spending at least as much time with her as before, even videochatting when she's busy at work.  The biggest change in priorities is him putting her needs ahead of his.  It clearly wasn't his top choice to take care of a sick person, nor do the whole V-day romance thing but he was willing to do it for her.  The consoling hug ticks several boxes:  emotional dependence, need for emotional bonding, and physiological response because he clearly calmed down the instant she put her arms around him and panicked again when she let go.  The EC is a major affiliative gesture and he also refers to her as his gf every chance he gets.  We see a lot of goal-oriented gestures every time she's angry and he tries to fix it, or most recently in his desperate attempt to avoid hurting her feelings.  He also laid out his goal of getting more comfortable with physical contact.  Elevated sexual desire is obvious as we've noted, everything from the chicken pecking for corn to outright stating they might get physical someday.

Thank you, Puppy Chow.   Yes, I do believe the writers do know what they are doing.  They have done a fine job of unfolding a very beautiful love story (even if it does seem weird and unique).  That is why people are obsessed with this couple so much.  They have everything that people desire in their own relationships.

You told him good though :-). I saw that. Yeah, staying away from that is a good idea because that dude will come at you with even more bullshit. There are some members of the forum who like to stir the pot all the time with their "we are above anyone who doesn't miss seasons 1 through 3 as much as we do" attitudes. Drives me nuts. LOL. That's why it's great we have a thread like this to come escape from that every day.

 

Love your siggy, btw!

Thanks, lady!

 

The siggy is something I'd made for my tumblr. :)

Well, maybe not EVERYTHING...yet.  :icon_wink:

Is it weird that possibly my favorite moment of 6x15 is the whole "Dogboy" exchange? I missed them being on the same page about stuff, I really think they need to do more of that. I don't understand why TPTB seem to feel like they can't advance the relationship, and keep it slow, without having them at odds with each other. The moments where they've been "in tune" this year have been very few and far between. Besides the parking spot, I can't think of any others.

Yes, yes, oh yes! My favorite too. I latched on to the moment right away.

 

They should really show more of that famous 'quirky mental chemistry' they shared right from the start. Amy has changed meanwhile, and wants more of the normal romantic stuff now, and while that's fine (and helps to evolve their relationship), it's important to show that she's not changed beyond recognition and she and Sheldon still have that intellectual/attitudinal meeting-ground in common. This random incident was a good hint of that. 

 

Will have to watch the promo back home at night.. so looking forward to it!

 

Great to read Meg's memorable analysis again. Looking back to when she wrote it, so many other hints and signs have come our way since then.

I actually went through the episodes in my head while brushing my teeth this morning (as you do) and boy they really have kept them apart this season. 6x01 and 6x10 were the only two episodes where they had significant screentime together, before this last one. And in the ones they did have screentime they usually put them at odds (6x01, 6x05, 6x07, 6x15). We do have hints that they spend a lot of time together off screen scattered throughout the season, but we really don't get to see much of that camaraderie. And all the development as far as the relationship is concerned has happened with Sheldon on his own. I think because of the massive growth he's had this season I didn't even notice how little Shamy time there's been, but that dogboy comment really drove that home to me.

 

 

eta: If someone goes to Comic Con this year, can they please ask TPTB to burn that green cardigan and the yellow one? Please?

We seem to be having the same discussion over different forums.

 

I agree. I have mixed feelings about this - on the one hand, I love that there has been so much emotional and relationship growth during this season owing to the differences between them and Sheldon's consequent introspection. But I still do miss seeing more of their 'relationship of the mind' camaraderie; we seem to see their conflict situations more often nowadays.

 

Also, as you say, we've seen almost all of the growth solely in Sheldon; we're getting to see his thought-process play out, through hints and revelations, over this arc. I think this was intentional on the part of the writers; it was established in season 5 that Amy has changed enough to want a romantic relationship with Sheldon, and is eager for it, and now it's a question of how long it takes Sheldon to catch up on that. But it does leave less time and opportunity to show what's beautiful and relaxed, in their relationship. It also leaves us a little clueless, for now, as to how much of Sheldon's emotional journey Amy is privy to. I'm hoping that they will let it be revealed to her, little by little, to her happy surprise, and that will again bring them to a more stable state of companionship.

But tbh they kept them apart alot in s5 too and they had alot of conflict too. They burnished the intellectual bond back in s4. It is necessary I think to build a level of angst between em.
