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

Maybe I'm not explaining myself well. I'm not talking about attention in terms of screentime or storylines. I'm talking about attention in terms of character consistency and details. There's a great focus on making sure Sheldon isn't "ruined" but not as much focus is being paid to the other characters, imo. 

I follow what you're saying and completely agree. They do worry a lot about "ruining" Sheldon, but where was the uproar when Howard went from wannabe ladies man to married (not that I have ant problem with his growth).

Okay, I don't know if that was the best example, but zI do get what you're saying.

Tbh howard getting married made no difference to his character as he is still getting bossed about but moving back to Sheldon and Amy I am liking and enjoying the growth their characters are having and how they are taking the relationship, building a foundation for something longlasting, they dont have a conventional relationship and thats why is so interesting to watch

As crass as this may be, I think a lot of it comes down to the thinking that Sheldon is bringing in the viewers( whether or not that's true), he's the money-maker, so don't "ruin" him so the audience is happy. A very unromantic notion from this hopeless romantic.

True. What other couple can make hand holding so special? Or time shared in the lab, etc. I so enjoy their unconventional love story.

Also going by the last episode Amy may think shes ready for more but by choosing leonards room rather than sharing Sheldons, that kinda shows shes pretty much in the same place (readinesswise) as Sheldon, maybe a little bit ahead but they clearly have strong feelings for each other but not having been in relationships before and therefore not having the experience they need to work it at their pace and thats why i like it so much

Although I have to admit that sometimes he's annoying, and his comments are hurtful, this character  is supposed to be annoying, bloated, but he changes and matures, there will always be those for whom he's annoying and those who believe that  he is like " sweet as a button".

Anyway, going back to Shamy. Yes, rach, I was just rewatching those scenes last night and the more I watch them the more I'm convinced Amy really did not even remotely think about the implications of moving in together. She's so excited about living together but at the same time it's a very childish notion of living together that she has. When she lists the reasons at the beginning and the first one is "I'm not a stranger". Yes, exactly Amy. You're a girlfriend, not a roommate! Some people say that because she had the outburst about being the best girlfriend that she was trying to advance the relationship by moving in together, but I actually don't think she was. She was of course happy to move in with her boyfriend but not only did she not even mention or discuss sleeping arrangements etc, she just automatically assumed they weren't going to share a bedroom. That doesn't sound to me like someone who has been thinking about the situation in terms of intimacy at all. 

 

I do think this ep emphasized how much growing she needs to do too, rather than how ready she is to move things forward. I find it interesting that people seem to have two completely different takes on what she saw moving in with him as.

Their growing up is fascinating, maturation into love, looking into each others eyes, eye-coitus, it's like exploring each other. Like good wine, they opened bottle and we can enjoy of their taste, colour and they hit in to our mind.

They have a lot of work with their relationship, but she knows what she feels, and what she want's, but I think that if there would be an intimate situation,  she will afraid too, because they both are without experience.  I think that if such  situation occurred, each of them would go to Penny, for advice, to confess. She would be in this willy-nilly, because they trust  her most. Even Sheldon. I do not think he would go  to Leonard, only to her..

Yeah. After watching the episode again, I believe Amy’ idea of “moving in” or living together was more about being housemates. The comment Amy made about checking to see if her waterbed would fit in Leonards’ bedroom, suggests living together, yet sleeping in separate beds/ bedrooms.

I believe this episode was intended to…

1) Show how Penny has matured enough (and loves Leonard enough) to now work through her commitment issues as opposed to just running away whenever Leonard pushes beyond her comfort range.

2) Be a precursor for a Shamy advancement. I get the feeling the combination of having Sheldon not be able to refute Amy’s “What the hell” scene along with the “it’s possible” comment from previous episode are the writers way of testing the water.

It should also say a lot to the people who, apparently watching a different feed of the show, keep insisting that Amy is pressuring Sheldon for sex. If she were that desperate to have sex she would have jumped at the opportunity to share a bed.

I don't recall Amy doing or saying anything to pressure Sheldon for sex, but Amy has done and said many things to let Sheldon know the goods are available for the taking...bongo bootycall, "2nd base is right there", bikini wax bandaids.  I do believe Amy wants a physical relationship.  She was sexually aroused when Sheldon gave her a bath, spank her and put vapo-rub on her chest in the episode where she was sick.  And at the very least wants physical contact in terms of holding hands, hugging. 

 

I'm guessing the next step would likely be kissing.  Shamy sex is still too premature.

The "mmkay", like Monique said, it's because he's not looking forward to it, but the way he says Hello before I thought was quite husky, that's why I said there might be a hint of sexual tension(come on people! font 10, let's not start anarchy in here! :p )

sexual tension in size 48 or go home ;)

 

 

 

i think they could do something with sheldon and the casual viewers would forget by next week :p

Maybe I shouldn't bring this up, but I saw something in that other thread (that one) and it infuriated me.  One of the usual complainers essentially said that anyone who has experienced true love would not find the Shamy story appealing.  I didn't want to start a war over there so I'm ranting here with like-minded people.  I take great offense to that.  It's patronizing, hits below the belt, and IMO is completely untrue.  It's certainly untrue in my case.  I am drawn to the story for its complete sweetness.  Clearly these are two characters who haven't a clue how to navigate a romantic relationship, but have stumbled upon the right person which gives them the motivation to figure it out.  Gradually over time they have gone from being very standoffish with people to finding their way into each other's hearts.  It's not at all conventional, but that doesn't make it wrong.  It absolutely is not a sign of dysfunction if a person is touched by this story.

 

I'm sorry but that is just so ridiculous I can't even get angry. I'm literally just LOLing in my chair. Now the pedestal has changed from "We know better entertainment than you" to "We know what true love is and you don't?". LOL LOL LOL. How pathetic. 

 

 

And PEOPLE! Stop it with this font anarchy!!!

Totally ridiculous they would make such a comment.  My husband and I had very much a Shamy story and we have been married for 27 years, happily I might add.  We both were friends first, drawn to each others' minds.  Our story is very much like Shamy's.   I don't know many couples that have been together as long as we have in my generation and for someone to tell me that what we have isn't true love...well that is pure hokum!   Sheldon and Amy have a far truer love than most because they have a strong foundation underneath their growing attraction to each other.  They have a strong friendship and respect for each other.  They have great minds and have countless things they can continue to talk about through life.   :icon_wink:

Totally below the belt and offend people, Everyone can find something in this show for themselves and what is it, it's a private matter. Anyone can present their views and do not cause riots

Don't sweat it; everyone is entitled to their own opinion.  Personally, I find the Shamy story appealing because the writing and acting is well done.  It doesn't matter that Shamy may or may not align with true love in a general or real world way...this is a sitcom.  Plus, as you said, both characters have never been in a relationship before, so they're learning on the fly and often portrayed as the blind leading the blind.

First of all, what the hell is true love anyway? Is there an empirical definition I am missing? Have they had their oxytocin measured and compared to those of the rest of the population to be able to claim they know what true love is and people who find Shamy appealing don't? 

 

In any case, when it comes down to those types of arguments it means they are grasping at straws because they can't find anything else to say on the subject except admit they are wrong. End of story. 

 

Let's move back to Shamy goodness. I just read on Tumblr a spoiler that Amy will come to Sheldon's rescue in 6x18 about getting the kids excited about science! I'm so digging this plot!!
