koops Posted April 27, 2013 Posted April 27, 2013 Oh here we go. First of all Penny and Leonard never did that. Penny would only act when Sheldon was having a crisis and desperately needed it. Leonard and Sheldon have had their run-ins but Leonard only stepped in when things got out of hand as well. Even his mother knows there are things she can only pray about. It would be different if Sheldon were having a crisis with his OCD and needed her to help. But that was not the case. Of course she is trying to change him. It all depends on if you enjoy the fact she is attempting this. Which I'm pretty sure a good many fans are. I actually enjoyed the episode myself but I still think their relationship is well messed up. He was calling up a TV station repeatedly to try and re-instate a TV show, how is that not having a crisis? And Amy was there to witness it. The rest of the episode was just an excuse to have a bunch of funny gags with a neuroscience flavor to it so they'd have an excuse to bring science into the episode. I'd hardly say this is Amy trying to "change him". This was just another TLA. Actually it was even less than TLA because this had no relevance to their relationship whatsoever, if not to show that Sheldon is willing to at least try and listen to her. Again, *Sheldon* admitted he had a problem with closure once she made her point and he couldn't refute it. And *he* asked what she suggested as a course of treatment. She was only helping him for his own benefit. What difference does it make to their relationship whether or not he is obsessed with finishing stuff? If she really wanted to "change him" to benefit her, she would have pushed against his germphobia so they can have sex. Not about finishing stuff of all things. Obviously, she's his girlfriend, of course the relationship is going to be different than the one he has with Leonard or Penny and her influence is going to be greater. We can't compare how he reacts to her to how he reacts to L/P and viceversa, because the dynamic is different by definition, she's not meant to be like another one of the group. The whole point of Amy on the show is that she provides new situations for Sheldon to be in and react to. And Leonard and Penny care up to a certain point, they're not the ones who are in a relationship with him. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
