koops Posted March 7, 2013 Posted March 7, 2013 The writers do seem to get stuck with certain things sometimes just to see how much creepy/weird they can get away with. It happened the same with Raj and Stuart, although it didn't last as long. I think it was partly consistent with the idea that Amy just had no clue what is socially appropriate and partly that they then just got carried away with it and it became a staple of her character for a part of her development. Same thing with her sex jokes which have now gone. I don't think any of these things are meant to be taken seriously, they're just meant for laughs, like idrive was saying. But some can be more annoying/unfunny than others, I do have a problem with certain throwaway lines. I don't think they ever meant to be an explanation for her crush on Penny because I don't think they ever really meant she was literally crushing on Penny. She had that infatuation with the popular girl for a while but that's gone once Amy became established in the group and didn't feel the need to cling onto Penny for social approval anymore. She's actually been pretty scornful of Penny a few times this season. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
