Leonard And Penny Season 7 *spoiler* Discussion Thread

 - I really don't think the writers are being lazy or sloppy at all here. It's not very nice to accuse them of that, you can tell from interviews how much they care about the characters they have created and write. 

 

I have a right to my opinion just as you do.  So I will say it again that the writers do get lazy and don't put much effort into Lenny a lot of the time and I stand by it.

 

I could walk through each seasons and show where I thought the writing was lazy or sloppy or whatever you want to call it when Lenny played out on screen.  Does my opinion not count because you don't agree with it --- I think NOT.

 

Finally, all of Season 6 wasn't that great for Lenny --- though the latter part of the season offer us some good Lenny moments (where the viewers could see that not only was Leonard into the relationship so was Penny) of the entire show and it only took six years for them to give me and some others those great moments.  So yes, I think the writers dropped the ball on this couple more than they got it right.

You are very much welcome to your opinion (I didn't say you weren't) and I'm cool with that. There are some things the writers done that I don't really like either. The season being good and saying that I believe they do put the effort in for them, that's my opinion. I just felt it's a little harsh for people to blame the writers for screwing up (specifically on an episode we haven't seen yet) - they've given us many great moments and they've gotten us aboard the Leonard & Penny ship, so they're doing something right, no? Again, I'm not saying you can't have your opinion, I totally respect that you think that, but if that's how it came across then my apologies. I hope for more L/P development in this season and lots of cute moments, with the little things that keep the relationship interesting.

I think sometimes we don't see the Lenny moments in Season 6 because they are very subtle and very, very domestic.  I find that quite appealing though.  It shows how comfortable they are with each other and that they really do have things to talk about (even if Prof. Proton doesn't think so).

I didn't notice that.  I was looking last night for a cute L/P picture and love that scene.  I will change mine...

 

Oh, no! I wasn't implying that you have to change it, keep it, it doesnt bother me! I was just pointing out its the same! :)

I am not sure if this 100% applies here, and I do not have an issue with the episodes reports at this time.  I know it was for a very different type of show, but Joss Whedon once said he does was the show needs (and by extension the viewer) not always what the viewer wants.  At this point if TBBT is to last at minimum 3 to 4 more seasons (I believe this is creator's goal), they need to retain some level of tension in the Penny Leonard relationship.  In fact their relationship is completely built on tension and insecurity, despite the fact the they do want to be with one another.

 

As for the attention payed to certain characters or relationships, it varies from season to season, and the biggest negative of growing the permanent cast is older cast members have their screen time and plot-lines trimmed down.  This is what I miss most from the earlier seasons.  They could give all the Sheldon screen time anyone could handle and still have ample time for other cast members.  Not so much now.  Now they have fallen in the very predictable pattern of girls plot, boys (heavily Sheldon usually) plot, and one or two other episode sub plots.  Not much else can really be done in 21 minutes.  There have been times in the especially during the 4th and 5th seasons were Penny is nothing more than a supporting character.  We have to deal with the fact that Sheldon (for better or worse) is the most popular and memorable character on the show in the public's eye, so the show is going to be tailored to some extent to that reality.  In the beginning it was intended that the show was mainly going to be about Penny and Leonard, it just has not progressed in that fashion.

When Penny first me Leonard did she have any real obligation to date him straight away or declare her love for him? No I think it is more realistic for it to take Penny 6 seasons to declare her love for Leonard, why would she straight away, Lenny created depth and history over time that led to Penny telling Leonard she loves him. Penny has always been a work in progress, she has always had struggles with conveying how she feels, she has always struggled to find the right depth to actualize those emotions, hence why it came out without even realizing she was saying them. I think the writers have done a great job with the relationship with Lenny. Their have been great moments between Leonard and Penny from the Pilot when they weren't dating JMO.

So I guess Penny lied to Alex about that five and half year experiment?

 

btw if you have a problem with my post you can always ignore them and keep on walking. 

I don't have a problem with your posts I thought we were having a healthy debate lol. And I don't remember Penny talking to Alex about that five and a half year experiment? Maybe I missed that episode.
