Leonard And Penny Season 7 *spoiler* Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Am I the only one that thinks Kaley is playing Penny a little differently this season, Penny doesn't seem as affectionate to Leonad, as last season.

no matter how good of an actor you are, this has to be a tough situation. You meet the man of your dreams and you decide he is "the one". You are going to marry him . Then you have to go to work and be physical with someone else, who by the way, you thought may have been "the one" in the past. I have no idea the dynamics of the prior relationship between Johnny and Kaley, but I sympathize with her especially at the early part of season 7, when Ryan was at tapings...or perhaps I am top naive...

Probably just me then. I just think she has been more snarky with him, they seemed to me to not touch or kiss as much and I don't remember any bed scenes or pillow talk this season.

That's the writers' business, not hers. Nothing to do with Kaley.

It's called being in a long-term relationship.  My wife and I dated for 5 years before we got married and we were a lot less touchy and lovey-dovey in year 5 than we were in year 1 or 2.  We are also both very sarcastic people so the snarkiness went up as well once we realized it was not going to actually piss the other person off.  Just the natural progression of things.

There wasn't really a bed scene and no pillow talk last year either.  The closest was them showing Leonard getting out of bed, to go read her report.  And actually, they haven't shown a bed scene that wasn't a dream (Remember, the two scenes in The Recombination Hypothesis were in Leonard's mind). since season four in "Love Car".  As a matter of fact, the last scene of Penny talking with someone under covers is with Raj.

There is one in episode 6.06. It's been a long time, we need a new one :(

Does anyone else like the fact that Penny is coming out of Leonard's room early in the morning?

YES! And must have been a wild morning... Leonard immediately searching for his inhaler? Sounds like Penny kinda left him without handing him the inhaler xD

Leonard: That was awesome. Penny, where's my inhaler? *door shuts* ... Penny? *heavy breathing*

I'm actually a little sad that having this suddenly thrust in my face again no longer brings out any kind of reaction. I realize I just don't care anymore. 

 

I still remember when the show was awesome......

 No not just you I think that too. Not sure if its anything to do with K's personal life but I don't see any outward signs of progress in their relationship..  L buying her a car  being the only exception

I mentioned this on the spoiler thread but I think Lenny is a 200 bowler and Shamy is a 100 bowler. It is easier to see progress for Shamy because they have more to accomplish than Lenny (SIK, possible coitus). The only thing left is engagement, moving in together, and marriage. I think Penny telling Leonard in the hallway by themselves about her thinking about going back to TCF was progress. In the past that was a group discussion. Same with Leonard and the car. he would have mulled it over with the guys. Them being in bed together that's old news. If it was Shamy the site would crash. Relationship wise at the moment the progress is with Shamy. In regards to Kaley's personal life as much as people may or may not like Ryan it has nothing to do with him. Wasn't Kaley in a nightie and shorts/bra this season? And we haven't seen the gorilla outfit yet.

No, it is not just you. I see the same thing. I think they should have been more affectionate on screen, and when they kissed, they should have been more passionate, as for example when Leonard gave him the car, Penny should have been all over him.

I think part of the problem was the scene was rushed, just like the whole episode was. I think it would have been better if it would have lasted longer.

I like it (not that Ive seen it that I recall) its just that I need more constant reassurance (LOL) that they are nuts for each other. My suspension of disbelief that two people who are crazy for each other can keep the GTB in the middle and not want to run away from him is coming closer to hitting the ground the longer I over-think it.

 

The good news is maybe they have time to refocus... but there is no incentive to, as commercially they are fine with this formulation.

 

*sigh* We'll always have season 5... and bits of s6. And tiny bits of S7... but the space is getting smaller...soon it will be nano bits...

 

(LOL catastrophising much? :))

I think this has been a problem all season with the scenes of Penny and Leonard showing affection. There is so much story that has to be crammed into 20 minutes of screen time that they don't have time to show them in bed having pillow talk or exchanging more than a cursory kiss.

 

Still, they have made L/P so solid that, like most sitcom married couples, there appears to be no need for the powers that be to remind the viewers that they have the hots for each other. That is now taken as a given and affectionate activities seemed to be sacrificed to the other plot line.

 

Maybe that is a good thing.

I understand what you are saying, however, even a 200 bowler only keeps that average if they keep rolling strikes.

The only problem with this is sooner or later the lack of showing affection as they had in the past presents the possibility that Lenny looses that essence that made them so special.

After the renewal for 3 years ..... I think they are going to stretch these storylines even more further....which IMO have already gotten stale.....

 

The Leonard character seems to be there for just namesake.... I don't remember a story based on Leonard's character for the past 2 seasons....Just look at how much focus Sheldon's character gets ...so many episodes based on Sheldon's work and the few episodes which seemed to be about Leonard's work were just all about how Sheldon felt......at least Penny has some storyline surrounding her but Leonard has nothing .......

 

the show for me is getting too predictable and too boring with the same old jokes ..... And I also lost a lot of admiration for Mr Parsons acting prowess after seeing his performance on SNL which I thought was awful and one note....

 

Recently I have not been visiting this forum frequently and I think the frequency is going to be even more less from now.....

 

Anyways I had fun here.....may I will come back ....may be I won't...

 

but it has been fun talking to you guys.......hope to chat with you guys after some time.....bye for now...............and have fun :)

I tend to agree, the affection that Leonard and Penny had was part of the magic of Lenny, things like she always asked for him when she came over, touching him all the time, always kissing him on the cheek with a big smile and the pillow talk. That stuff made Lenny adorable and it happened all the time, now everything seems rationed and Penny is snarky to him all the time in between.

Yah, but they can write and play it what they want... THAT part of it doesnt have to be realistic. What is unrealistic is the piggy in the middle - that's more unnatural. But it is an ensemble show and one has to embrace the Sheldon... tightly... around the throat... (sorry, channeling the suppressed Leonard from the time when Sheldon butts in as Penny is saying goodbye).  :)

That's very nice for you and your wife wanting to be sarcastic to each other and took for ever to make a real commitment to each other. For every one of your examples there are plenty of couples that get engaged in a "reasonable" amount of time and speak respectfully to each other. So what? This is a Sitcom. The fans are suppose to be jovial and actually laughing and pleased with the scene. Their not suppose to cringe and be bewildered as to what the hell is going on. It's been 7 years already! Make a frigging decision. If it's Sheldon then kill him in his sleep and move on!
