S7 Spoilers

Recommended Posts

I don't think that Sheldon is getting tenure, at least not based on what Chuck Lorre said. Even if he mentions that Sheldon's work gets recognized and taken to another level, he also says that it is not exactly what Sheldon was expecting, and since tenure was somthing he was hoping for...

I hope that Leonard gets tenure, so that he can hold that over Sheldon, which could be funny, and would make things better balance.

Or.......maybe they will not deal with the tenure issue until much later in the season. Who knows...

Not necessarily. If he had a breakthrough, he, and his work, would become more well known(lifted to another level) and since this is a TV series, he may have to lecture or work with other scientists coming to Cal Tech to talk to him about it. Meaning more contact with strangers, which could make him uncomfortable and not what he was hoping for as he could lose time for working on his ideas.

 

This is what I was saying over on the other forum--that it doesn't have to have anything to do with the tenure question, but could be about him getting some recognition that puts him in the position of having to meet with donors or do other social things that he doesn't want to do.  Maybe they even make him teach a class about whatever his achievement was, or whatever.

 

If they ever talk about who gets tenure, I agree with koops that it ought to be Kripke, which would provide continued conflict between him and the gang and also prevent any kind of inequality among the gang.

It would be funny if Leonard got tenure as it would pit Sheldon in the place of having to either respect Leonard (who would have input into whether Sheldon ever gets tenure) or denigrate tenure as an institution. Since it is clear he really wants tenure, it would drive him batty.

Why does he have to be put in his place?  Who says he's out of line?

It is simply not possible for Sheldon to be more condescending and disrespectful to Leonard. For Leonard to get tenure, it would force Sheldon to acknowledge Leonard's quality as a scientist. So far in the show, Sheldon has been all smoke and no fire research-wise.

The premise of the show is that Sheldon is condescending to everyone.  Even if Leonard got tenure, it's not going to change Sheldon's attitude toward him.

True, but it would make it more difficult to be condescending, as he would have to disrespect that which he desires. The irony would be wonderful.

Sheldon needs to be taken down a few pegs, though none of his research has discovered any substantial findings, he thought he did in S 3 Ep 1, turns out the guys played a trick on them lol yeah I know cruel, but imagine being in the antartica with Sheldon for 3 months, I would prob do the same thing. Besides Leonard is an experiemental Physicist, Sheldon I am not sure does Quantum Physics? From what I have seen Leonard lately has had alot more success and progress done then Sheldon.

I go along with the Leonard gets tenure idea.  I think it has the most plot potential, because Sheldon will be forced to admit Leonard did something well and before him.  Second it would be consistent with how the university has acted in the past.  As shown by Raj when he was in People and next when Howard went into space, the school rewords high profile people with better offices, assistants, and parking spaces.  Leonard, after the Hawkins trip, will be high profile now, especially if the trip comes back with a big breakthrough.  The university will reward the high profile Leonard by giving him tenure. President Siebert also pretty much hates Sheldon, and I think is unlikely to allow the tenure.

^ I think Leonard does

 

I thought Leonard would be the one to get tenure until Chuck Lorre's comments about Sheldon.

 

I can see why they would not give it to him though. With a substantial increase in income, Leonard would logically not live with Sheldon. He would tempt Penny to a new very upscale place free from Sheldon's demands and irritations.

 

Sheldon, on the other hand has already told Amy that tenure would not change his status in the least. He assumes he would only have to put up with a jealous Leonard.

No matter who gets tenure (and I'm not convinced that that's what Lorre is referring to), ain't nobody moving anywhere anytime soon.

Its not logical to live with Sheldon, anyway. As soon as Penny folds, the premise collapses *sighs*.

 

 

I think the premise of the show collapsed years ago.  In my opinion Leonard is only there as Sheldon whipping boy and nothing else.  Leonard should have been allowed to move into his own place a long time ago.

I don't know who will get tenure, though I do doubt it will be Leonard.  Lorre has never had any good ideals for the character Leonard and I don't see it changing anytime soon. 

 

I do wonder why Leonard was even included as part of the storyline about the tenure as we all know that Sheldon will always come out on top.

It's pretty obvious Leonard well get the tenure, that was made pretty clear in Season 6, just another oppurtunity to make Sheldon bitter and play the antagonist. I agree the central premise has changed alot from Season 1, Leonard lived their due to the living arragement agreement, but that has really has fallen apart over the years, Leonard pretty much just ignores it now lol. I cannot see Leonard moving out anytime soon, Sheldon needs Leonard he's his ride haha, but maybe eventually Leonard well move in accross the hall with Penny, that way Leonard can still be close by in proximity for Sheldon.

Oh, are we looping back to that again?

 

There are more than one POV on that possibility.

 

1. Sheldon and Penny switch Apts. There's not enough room for L/P in Penny's apt. No new sets need to be built.  Leonard just across the hall to take Sheldon to things. Sheldon gets his privacy and keeps Amy at bay (no Amy room mate).  Counter argument, Sheldon will never leave his spot.

 

2. Leonard moves in with Penny. No new sets need to be built.  Leonard just across the hall to take Sheldon to things. Raj could move in with Sheldon. Counter argument, There's not enough room for L/P in Penny's apt. and Amy will want to move in with Sheldon and he won't like that.

 

3. Penny moves in with L/S No new sets need to be built. Counter argument, Sheldon would go even nuttier having to share a bathroom with Penny.

 

4. L/P could move upstairs to 5a. Leonard just upstairs to take Sheldon to things. Raj could move in with Sheldon. Counter argument. Amy will want to move in with Sheldon and he won't like that. Need to build new set (or at least re-create old set from season 2).

 

5. L/P could move somewhere else, tell Sheldon to go-away and they could get a life and be happy. Counter argument. They should be so lucky!

Don't forget the couch is Leonard's, that could be a fun episode
