phantagrae Posted September 3, 2013 Posted September 3, 2013 I don't think they would give Sheldon tenure. No one in any position of authority at Caltech wants to be stuck with him permanently. Also if they don't give tenure to either Leonard or Raj I really doubt they'd give it to Kripke. The interactions with Kripke work because he is on the same level as them, if he had tenure it would lose something. I really think they're either going to give it to Leonard or someone we've never met. After all it wouldn't just be the four of them up for tenure, and Leonard is of more value to the University, he can interact with donors, brings in grant money, and worked with Hawking. IF they actually ever address the tenure question again (and I think that the fans are more hung up over it than the writers are), I don't think it will be a question of the reality of who would be a better asset or who would be stuck with one of them permanently as much as it will be a question of what would be funnier--with some lip service given to the idea of who makes a bigger contribution, etc. If Sheldon is going to have a significant breakthrough in his work, that could be a reason to give him tenure--again, if they're actually still planning to folllow up on that story. I've certainly gotten over the whole idea of tenure already. I actually hope they more or less drop it--or give it to somebody else, including some random faculty person. I think there are more interesting things for them to explore as far as their work is concerned than getting tenure. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
