Lionne Posted November 11, 2013 Posted November 11, 2013 I believe part of the reason us Lennys are so excitable is that the writers screw with Leonard and Penny too much, and act like messing with the Shamy is a third rail. Lenny is the only couple that broke up for an extended period of time. Bernie and Howard never really got started before heir breakup, and Shamy broke up for about a week (25 cats!). I prefer to see more episodes such as where Leonard and Penny are sitting on the couch offering comments while the Shamy takes an extended turn in bad relationship land. My fellow shippers are going to shoot me for this, but I don't disagree with it - when Sheldon and Amy are a little stronger as people. Or both are, in their self-esteem. (Not the self-esteem that they fake externally, the one which is real on the inside, and is still iffy for both.) Otherwise, I think both characters would just about crumble if they broke up, and then the question becomes...do you want to watch 6 - 7 episodes of Sheldon and Amy moping over each other before they get back together? Would THAT be fun to watch? (Because I don't think Leonard's going to let Sheldon get 25 cats this time.) Sheldon and Amy have a lot of hurdles to overcome - they started as a pair of babies playing at a relationship, went through potty training, and finally hit their teenage hormonal stage at the end of last season. It's possible to have a type of fight or break up typical to teenagehood, or about something trivial in this point of their relationship, but I don't see either of them being able to handle or partake in drama as most people would know it. Theoretically, the whole thing in Raiders over that movie, and Sheldon seeking revenge on Amy, was "drama" as far as Shamy would do it, for them it was pretty emotional. But "normal" type of bickering in a relationship, as most people would know it? No. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
