Recommended Posts

Has any one caught the promos for this week's episode? You'd think Leonard and Penny weren't in it at all. from the taping report, you'd think the Sheldon plot would be the "B" plot. I guess this will be like the last episode, where Leonard and Penny are quietly furthering their relationship, while Sheldon spirals off in his own world.

Just saw the promo just because they diddn't feature Leonard and Penny does not mean they wont't have a substantial part of the episode. The promo is a 30 second overall of the plot of the episode, the episode deal's with Sheldon's advances in his career in finding a new element, then he discovers he could of made a mistake, oh come on your telling me the great Sheldon Cooper, made a mistake, what is the world coming too. The episode look's so good, although it is Sheldon centric again, Sheldon getting lost in his own world, loved the line from Amy though. As much as I love Leonard and Penny's relationship, it's good that is not a relationship focused episode, we know Leonard and Penny are dating doesent't have to be reinforced every episode lol just saying.

Speaking of promos, on twitter somebody posted that the promo said "there's a double shot of love coming your way" (shown on CTV) so... guessing that's the most L/P promo love we're gonna get! So excited to see this episode though. I'm kind of glad there's nothing in the promo or photos because it's going to be even awesomer to just see it happen without any prior thinking about how it will look on screen.

I like these episodes much better than the ones where they are fighting over something. And bat crap crazy Sheldon always amuses me.

CTV has been running TBBT/TAAHM ads for tomorrow's ep. with a bit of L/P. Leonard has a "crapload of romance" headed his way. :yes:

Unfortunately I can't find it online to link here.

Gotta say if it wasen't for Bernadette and Amy's inclusion in the show, Penny woulden't be making more of an effort in their relationship, Bernadette was the one who told Penny to show more interest in Leonard's work, and that started the whole spark returning and the ILY. And now Penny is inspired by Bernadette, and step's up romantically with Leonard, I think early on Penny had no girlfriend's to talk through with, yeah she had her friend's who socially she had more in common with, but I think being friend's with scientists's, who are intellectually supeior to her, is like talking to the guy's but with a social touch. Looking forward to the episode, the show is really refined this year.

The girls do a lot for the show, not only do they give us the female respective for a lot of scenes, they help Penny like you say, (because like Sheldon says her attention span isn't to keen, so they keep her focused), they help each other, they show us how nerdy the guys are so we don't have to figure it out ourselfs and they give us added different conflict to keep the show funny. I thing adding the girls was one of the reasons the show is doing so well.

I agree, I can't believe the Sci-fi, gaming activities of the guys would be that interesting to most women. And having two out of the three women with Phd's doesn't hurt either.

I happen to agree with you. The girls have added a necessary element to the story. As much as some hate change (most people do) the girls have rounded out the story very nicely. There is no doubt that the astronomical ratings that not only are being sustained but are improving from last season is because the writers have added a little bit for everyone. Romance, science, gaming, etc. IMO they have done a wonderful job to realistically move forward each character. Even the egotistic, arrogant Sheldon is actually moving forward IMO faster then I thought they would have him go. However, they are doing it under the guise of his childishness so it isn't as noticible.

I think what you said sums it up, the show is more rounded, so it appeals to a greater fan base.  The show has actually matured, like the actors, which I know some diehards hate, but like Darwin implied, "Adapt or Die", so it adapted and has flourished.

Actually that kind of makes sense, if you accept that the more mature, arrogant Sheldon is just a mask then the only time you'd see any real growth would be when that mask is torn away and only the real Sheldon is left, and that Sheldon never grew up.

Leonard and Penny were FanFreakingTastic and loved that Penny tried to do something special/romantic for Leonard.  The box of mementos from Leonard was perfect in everyway. 

 

I admit I didn't see the first pregnancy stick coming.  :yahoo:

Ok, the episode was excellent as always. However, I have been noticing something this season and what I have noticed is between Penny & Leonard. Therefore, that is why I have put it in this thread. It may be just my interpretation but their kisses are not nearly as passionate as the secne requires. It's like a brother and sister kissing. Even when she showed the box of all the romantic gifts Leonard gave her through the years. The two just didn't match. I don't know if it's because they keep having their SO at the tapings or something else but from my point a view they are not portraying the proper feeling for the moment. This isn't the first time it's happened this season. I hope it's just my imagination because they are both wonderful actors and I wouldn't want to think that they are holding back because their SO are wTching. Hopefully I'm seeing something that isn't there but I have noticed it through the last few episodes. Just an observation I'm throwing out there.

Yup, that was a surprise! Makes me glad that the taping report we got wasn't super detailed.

Leonard was surprised by that too.

I dunno, I see it as a sign of a more mature relationship, as opposed to the teenager-like lust of their first go-around.

Hopefully you are correct. It certainly won't change the Lenny dynamic. But I've been married longer then most likely the majority of the posters have been on this earth, and if I kissed like that after my wife showed me that box...well I wouldn't have been married as long as I have. Just saying.

And a cheeky little surprise... one (of many, apparently!) pregnancy tests. Oo err. 

 

This episode was so perfect and adorable. And no I haven't re-watched this scene like ten times already.

I don't see Penny and Leonard's passion when it come's to kissing ad being couply e.t.c. Being brother and sister, not sure having their SO's on set is a factor, they have been friend's for year's, and if that was the case then Season 3 Lenny you would think would be awkward seeing they just broke up around then, and they were dating other people, well I'm assuming. Not saying your wrong, just giving my perspective, I Think right now they are in the middle of defining their identity of their relationship, so it's alot more domesticated, an adult relationship, so I agree that it's a sign of how mature their relationship is, they don't have proove anything to each other, beside's, most of the ep's I have seen the chemistry to me has been of bf and gf, as it should be.

I think the scenes are ones which focus more of the mature, couple-y side of their relationship now, rather than the more wild passionate kissing side they had before. I thought it was good they didn't jump into that kind of stuff into this episode because it would transfer the energy from the romantic theme they had going to the idea that it's all about sex. That's how it would look on screen, most likely. And I think the chemistry is definitely still there between the two of them. 

 

Wow, quick with the screencaps! Thanks!

I couldn't wait it was just so perfect.
