S7 Spoilers

Recommended Posts

I think this is an episode that will not show its awesomeness in a taping report. It will show once the episode airs.

 

I wouldn't freak out over Shenny. They are fighting pretty much the whole way through. And he even says he didn't want to be paired with her. And they are friends!

 

I want to know where Amy/Howard are? But I'm sure the episode will show it.

 

This episode is intended as a fun whole cast episode and I'm excited for that!

^Umm, star I'm assuming they filmed with Mayim and Simon scenes yesterday seeing as they were missing in the studio tonight and correct me if I am wrong but isn't there a jewish festival thing going on right now?

 

Also, I can't follow the taping report cause this episode has not been shot sequentially but the episode seems fun. I think given Bernadette/Leonard and Amy/Howard... Penny/Sheldon provide a huge comic relief - I personally found that puzzle scene hilarious - it speaks to the way Sheldon wants to finish what he starts where Penny is just more realistic.

 

And I dunno, I feel like it's a fun mad-caper episode... I was a little underwhelmed with the whole bonding over Neil Diamond thing cause it seems kind of random/artificial as there has never been any indication that either Howard or Amy are big fans of him or that kind of music. But I'm waiting to see how it turns out because as of now, the Amy/Howard scenes are the biggest mystery. It would be adorable if the interest comes up when a Neil Diamond song comes up on the radio and they both start humming to it. 

 

Overall, the ep seems like a nice ensemble episode, I find nothing offensive about it.

Lol if your basing your expectations on a taping report of the focus primarily on Sheldon and Amy your going to be dissapointed, I enjoy all the characters. I'm not saying your doing this but alot of the first few eps deals with Leonard's return, so of course it's going to revolve around Lenny and Sheldon in their too, it's just part of start of the season right now.

 

 

Actually it's more about P/S and not much to due with Leonard's return or Leonard.  I am glad that Leonard is teamed with Bernie for a change and I can't wait to see how they get on together. Leonard gets a break from P/S and it's something I have wanted for a long time.

 

Guess we have to wait and see what Howard/Amy is doing.

 

 

 

eta:  Thanks  Roxanne and Alexandra for posting and hard work you put into it.

First off, thank you so very much to Roxanne and Alexandra. The report is great and has been so very swiftly delivered. Incredible job !

 

It could be a really good episode or a rather average one depending on how the scenes we know nothing about are woven into those we have been spoilt for. 

 

The pairings are interesting. Aside from Sheldon and Penny, they are couples we are no used to seeing : Howard and Amy have never interacted before and Leonard and Bernadette do not spend that much time together either. My main problem is Raj : he is a member of the group. The writers should find a way to include him more, not as a ringleader but as a full-on teammate.

 

I believe the Amy/Howard scenes have the potential to pack a real punch. Both are musical (Mr Helberg is a talented musician and Ms. Bialik's singing voice is very sweet) and the fact that they bound over their common love for a singer is definitely promising. Can you imagine the rocking version of "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" these two could come up with, with Amy on the harp and Howard on the keyboard ? That could be epic.

 

Bernadette and Leonard : I have to admit I love it when Evil Bernie comes out to play. The idea that she would upset Leonard on purpose to make him more fight-ready is hilarious to me. I can already envision her malevolent grin and his very pissed off face. 

 

Penny and Sheldon : I have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I am getting a bit uncomfortable with the "Penny is stupid" trope. We know she is scientifically illiterate and poorly educated. That is perfectly fine and in keeping with the character. However, she is not an idiot. The other characters know that. So the idea that both Leonard and Amy would recoil at the mere possibility of being paired with her on a scavenger hunt for fear of losing (as well as the fact that Raj would turn it into an "everybody wins" situation due to Penny's seeming lack of intellectual prowess) is both odd and canonically incorrect. 

On the other hand, the writers seem aware of that discrepancy and make sure that Penny gets her revenge, in a way. She gets most of the clues and manages to finish the hunt in time with the "smart" team.

As for her and Sheldon being paired together, it is nothing new but why not ? After all, with their very opposite abilities, they could make a great team. Like the Justice League where all the characters have complementary powers. And it is interesting to see that once again, Sheldon's love of minutiae is what slows the team down. If only he could relax just a little bit, he would kill this kind of competition. 

 

Also, "run all the way to India" is a great line.

I enjoy full cast episodes most of the time, like Love Car Displacement is one of my favorites.   I think this is one that is hard to get a good report on because it was shot out of order, over multiple taping sessions and was still incomplete.   So we are not going to feel warm and fuzzy necessarily about it.  I do thank Roxanne and Alexandra for putting together the pieces of what they could on this challenging episode.

 

However, that being said...they have now had three episodes in a row with Sheldon/Penny friendship.   Yet they have not really had Sheldon have any time with the guys.   His whole story has been centered around her.   I like their friendship just fine.  But I don't want it in every episode.   It is unrealistic that he suddenly has no time for anyone but hanging out with Penny.  If they didn't want to pair Lenny (which still puzzles me why they suddenly created this tension there)  they could have had Penny/Bernie and Sheldon/Leonard.  

 

I am very underwhelmed if the only thing we got was what was reported for the Amy/Howard thing and feel the bonding "thing" was a very bad selectrion (Neil Diamond...really?).  

 

However, as I said, we have not seen all of the scenes likely and there could be a lot more glue that explains a lot more, also shows couples back in traditional couples mode, etc.  I just don't know how it all will play out and hoping that those who go to 7.04 can fill in the pieces.

I'm not sure if Simon is observant (Mayim is), but from sundown yesterday (September 4) to sundown tomorrow (September 6) is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish Calendars New Year.

Please I saw this coming a mile away, when I read 7x02 when Penny was doing everything to make Sheldon happy after he found out Leonard was back and didn't tell him.  Now P/S are thick as thieves and so Leonard/Amy had to be made the scapegoats (not wanting to be team up with Penny) in order for P/S to be teamed together.  I am not going to jump down Leonard and Amy throats because the writers have a hard on for P/S being together at this time.

She gets a nice little karma by being the one, as far as the TR is concerned, who is finding most of the clues, and not Sheldon.

Certainly the writers make her pathetic at times with the lines they give her which are very self deprecating. However, the girls come to her for advice, and support. Same with the guys, as she is written to be their protector in many ways.

 

Sounds like it could be a fun episode. I just knew Amy and Howard would bond over something silly and fun. I never thought tptb would dredge up the soap opera antics again for another poor Howard and absent daddy storyline, but  add Amy to the mix this time. No thank you.

I'm glad they kept it cute.

I am sorry to ask but are we reading the same material ? 

 

Penny does everything in 7.02 to make Sheldon happy and completely ignores Leonard ?  In that she tries to make sure Sheldon's feelings are not too hurt by his best friend's deception and shows such tremendous excitement at Leonard's return that she implicitely allows him to live with her 24/7 for a couple of days. A notion she used to find borderline traumatic not too long ago.

 

Sheldon and Penny are thick as thieves ?  In a way that makes Sheldon depressed when he is paired with his neighbour and makes Penny bang her head against a door to escape Sheldon's compulsive need to finish a puzzle. 

 

The writers have a "hard on" for Sheldon and Penny ?  So much so that in six years, they have never shown these two to be romantically compatible. Six years of TPTB being able to have their characters do whatever they wanted and they never once had either of them declare any romantic attachment to each other. If they had wished to, they could have paired Sheldon and Penny up. No one would have stopped them. Yet they did not...

 

I am officially puzzled.

All I am saying is at this time the writers want scenes of P/S together and I am not talking romantic scenes.  Think about how they are writing things at this time ----- supposedly the Lenny guardian said they would be putting them together and that is what they are doing.

Haha join the club everyone is puzzled to as why people ship Sheldon and Penny in a romantic dynamic, I have watched the show since the pilot, the only reason Sheldon and Penny seven years later are even Friends is because of Leonard's persistence in making Penny part of the group. I have been confused always to even where the idea comes from, and what amazing friendship? Sheldon and Penny are no closer then she is with Howard or Raj theirs no difference IMO. It is a scavenger hunt and the writers decided to pair up Sheldon and Penny knowing it will bring alot of banter and comedy, they have been friends for seven years. Only thing I can think of is Shamy fans are getting more frustrated, if an ep doesen't have their relationship being the basis, like I said TBH coulden't care less the relationships well take care of themselfs, its the Big Bang Theory always has been always well be

It is really strange that neither Amy nor Leonard want to join the team of Penny. Something seems too forced to keep Sheldon and Penny together. The scenes of them seem fun though. I believe this is much better than the first. I want to know what happens with Amy and Howard.

I understand that for us, 'shippers of either Lenny or Shamy persuasion, it can be frustrating to see the couples we favour "dismantled". However, so much of their development is already focused on romance-related business that a little break, on occasion, can only be beneficial. 

 

As for the writers' obvious delight at pairing Sheldon and Penny, we have to accept it and admit that they know a good association when they see one. 

Penny and Sheldon are fun together. They just are. Both are superbly callous; they can say pretty outrageous stuff without even noticing. However, when they deliver such lines to their respective S.O.s (or even their friends), there is always a slight undertone of discomfort for the characters around them are rather sensitive. Penny and Sheldon are not sentimental. Not even a little bit. And they do not give a flying toss about each other's opinion.They can dish out insults and barbs at each other all day long without anybody's feelings ever getting hurt. It is manna from heaven for the writers : they can reach their "cruelty quota" without any downside. 

 

Let us allow them their (and our) fun and not read too much into it. Soon enough, the Shamy and the Lenny will take centre stage. The characters just need a little breezer.

Ships cannot take center stage in every episode. And the times where we have seen them use the couples in a just for laughs moment have been a real problem. Remember the "bear paw" line *shudders*. I would personally rather they ignore the couples in an episode that is just designed for laughs and focus more on the group dynamic like they did in this case.

 

Sheldon and Penny, despite the press comments, are just the same as they have always been. They are still their antagonistic, whacky selves. There was some bonding in the earlier episodes of this season, but honestly it really wasn't anything dramatic at all. I just don't see why anyone would be worried about S/P in a romantic sense. They are just using them in the episodes for the comedy gold that they are.

 

This episode is just a cast ensemble fun episode. And I am overall pleased with it.

To be honest, I do not judge the 'ship itself. As far as I am concerned, fans can 'ship whichever combination of characters they see fit. That could not be more OK by me. Shenny 'shippers do not hurt anyone : they just fancy Sheldon and Penny together. Good ! 

 

My only point is that the writers could have made the Shenny canon. They have had six years for that. Nobody could have stopped them : neither the fans, nor the network, nor the studio, etc. No one. They chose not to. So to interpret their decision to pair Sheldon and Penny on a scavenger hunt as a concerted effort to hurt or damage the canonical relationships seems erroneous to me.

the way some were acting, i was expecting horrible revelations in this report and there is no shenny what so ever. Of course a few will read to much into it but shenny is not a threat. It's a mother/son relationship.

Oh yeah everyone has the right to ship who they want based on their favorties, specific moments, hypothetical AU universe e.t.c. Regardless of the factors that people contribute to their perception of the show regardless of the cannon relationships in the show. And I agree the writers had no reason to not make Shenny a cannon possiblity, it's their show if they wanted Penny with Howard they would of done it. But the point is the writers are very very very protective of their characters, it may be a sitcom but the actors, writers e.t.c. Are very aware of the fans of the show and care about the characters development, like for example Kaley and Johnny are Pro Lenny and from the begginning have been, Kaley admitted she was forced to tears in the read over of Penny telling Leonard she loves him. The point is from the pilot to Season 7 Sheldon and Penny have always been written as two characters from opposing worlds, with very different back grounds Penny and Sheldon are the definition of complete opposite of the social spectrum's. Even go back to the pilot when Leonard and Sheldon first me Penny, Sheldon had no intention of having anything to do with this new girl who moved in, Leonard was in love at first sight haha, it was only up to Leonard to force Sheldon and himself to say Hi, and invite her to lunch. As she went into the guys apartment she revealed she just got out of a four year relationship and had been living with him. The guys almost straight away became a source of comfort and support system. Sheldon automatically the way she was conversing with Penny you could tell Penny was seeing him as an eccentric personality, she even said along the lines of bare with me I was 18 at the time "Oh your a scientist?". You could tell the way Leonard was looking at Penny that he developed a huge crush from the beggining, but could also see how lonely she was and she was going through alot, then enter Howard and Raj haha. The moment Leonard said "Our babies well be smart and beautiful" regardless of what relationships were formed or what happens in the show from that point the central premise of TBBT is Lenny, IMO they have been the most important relationship from the begginning. And TBH if it wasen't for Leonard's persistence in making Penny part of their circle, and their activities, and because of this Penny became conditioned and started to tolerate Sheldon's little quips and intracies. Imagine a scenario where Sheldon meet Penny, Penny was standing their and Penny would of said Hi, Sheldon would of went Hello and thats it. Leonard is the one and Penny who have been a huge part in his social development. Without Leonard and Penny in his life Sheldon most likely well still be socially stunted and impaired, almost the way he was when Leonard revealed to Penny how they first met. Alot of the moments between Sheldon and Penny have been of comedic value, their banter has always been this love/hate brother sister relationship, Sheldon has always devalued every aspect of Penny's life from her education, to her knowledge. Even Kaley and Jim eluded to this fact, I remember in the Adhesive Duck Ep, Penny after being brought home by Sheldon laughed at the idea of Sheldon undressing her haha. And also the ep the women from the university was trying to take credit for his work, and Penny quried the guys about Sheldon's "deal", she has always been confused about his sexual preferance, the guys have many theories ;). And I think ever since S3 in the DL Ep, when Leonard and Penny broke up and they treated Sheldon like divorced child, the idea of Sheldon and Penny being romantic was shot in the foot, it would just be creepy. Even go back to S6 finalie, Sheldon was acting like a petulant child, and it prooved to right their that Penny is completely in love with Leonard, and they are finnally equals. All I am saying is Sheldon and Penny are friends, just like Sheldon and Leonard are friends, just like Penny and Howard are Friends and Raj. Most of the touching moments in the show have been Lenny, I remember the S2 finalie the Lenny hug was very touching. Personally I don't think the writers put Sheldon and Penny together to annoy Shamy fans lol, just that they spent alot of time together when Leonard was gone for 3 months, they conditioned and bonded to deal with probably the most important person in their life gone after being their for seven years, bur eventually Penny got sick of Sheldon thats my point its a sibling relationship, you love your Brother but you can also get sick of him thats the relationship. The point is the writers know Shenny has worked before with its comedic value, and after being friends for seven years they are going to be continued to be paried up JMO.

Okay why are people so obsessed over the fact that Sheldon & Penny are paired together for this scavenger hunt? It's a comedy show, and watching their little arguments and disagreements is funny. They've been stuck with each other while Leonard was gone and now they are again, it's bound to drive them crazy and for me, that's fun.

 

I love Leonard and Bernadette being paired together for this, I love writing them together and I'm looking forward to seeing them together, Bernadette going all cray-cray at him! Ha. I think it's funny that neither Leonard nor Amy wanted to be paired with Penny - the two people she thinks would jump at the chance to pair with her - that always happens. It's not calling her stupid. They just really want to win this scavenger hunt... lets not forget, they are 'nerds' after all. 

 

I don't think this strains the Lenny or Shamy relationships by having - oh God forbid I hate this word - Shenny - friendship come about again. I want to see those little romantic parts too, you probably all know how much I love Leonard & Penny, but I think this is fun. The show is just parts of their lives, and it's just the start of the season, I'm sure we'll get plenty of those cute relationship moments later on. Super interested to see what's happening with Amy & Howard, very exciting! The show isn't about the romantic pairings of the group, it's a comedy about some nerds and a gal who's just trying to understand all that and make her way in life at the same time. Getting to explore these new pairings and more Shenny squabbling over 'it's the comic book store'? It's fun.

When I refer to Sheldon and Penny now I just call them Sheldon and Penny lol, some reason Shenny seems really contrived to me. Just the fact people are even discussing the possibility Sheldon and Penny being pairied would strain Lenny or Shamy, in what way? Lol am I watching another show? Of course they are going to be paired up, Sheldon wanted Amy Penny wanted Leonard, and no one wanted Penny haha, its funny, and its a comedy after all not a Dramedy, after all its not Himym ;)

This episode sounds like a lot of fun--and I like the idea of the pairings, and the fact that they all dismiss Penny, even though she ends up being just as good as figuring out the clues as the others.  They always underestimate her!

 

I think that when it comes to winning, they're all competitive enough to consider Penny a bit of a weak link.  If they think the clues are all about science, why would they think she would be an asset?  They underestimate her cleverness.  If she had been paired with anyone other than Sheldon, she might have been clearly in the lead the whole time.

 

And I don't get all the complaining about Sheldon and Penny.  This is ONLY the 3rd episode, for Pete's sake!  And #2 wasn't about Sheldon and Penny.  It was really about Sheldon and Leonard, primarily.

 

At any rate, I think we'll see something fun between Howard and Amy--I can picture them singing Neil Diamond in the car.  They're both so into slightly cheesy music, etc., I can just see it.  It's hard to call, though, since we didn't get to hear about whatever they might have filmed together the night before.

 

I think this sounds like a really fun episode and there's nothing to get all fussed up over. ;)

 

Oh, and can I just say--I called the "Vortex" part of the title! :D  I allowed the input of others to make me doubt myself, but I did come up with Vortex right after we saw the script pic.

"Does my face look smug?  I feel smug." :D
