I also think that, besides the clever metaphors and symbolisms of "controllers lighting up", the kiss really represented, to me, the blending of new, passionate, physically affectionate, Sheldon with the usual, obsessive, nerdy Sheldon to a perfect degree. Because it felt like it was an exact 50/50 blend to me. It wasn't tipped too much one way or the other. Like I tweeted Bill about, it was proof they can pull it off: they CAN write Sheldon as an affectionate boyfriend who enjoys physical intimacy without losing what makes him "Sheldon", and really write the nerd version of sex/flirty talk with them. I think at other times (like on the train) or in other contexts, Sheldon will get carried away so much in the kiss he can't think of anything else, lose track of its thoughts and get discombobulated. But that's not going to happen all the time. Not only it isn't true to the character, but also it isn't true to life. There's kisses and kisses and moments and moments, and while the idea of being swept away by feelings is romantic, it won't happen every time, especially with someone as obsessive as Sheldon whose brain goes at 200 miles an hour. If anything, this screams so much "normal couple" to me. It's like when Howard wouldn't stop babbling about space while about to have sex with Bernadette. I agree with Andy that these were writers whose mantra has always been "Sheldon has to remain Sheldon". Which, to me, always sounded too dangerously close to Sheldon who never wants any intimacy and kicks and screams against it, making Amy come across as if she's strong-arming him into intimacy. The fact that they can write a kiss like this, outside of sweeps no less, is so incredibly promising and so beyond what I ever expected of them when I flipped tables on my way out two months ago after that Molaro interview saying "She will want more. Maybe they'll kiss after Date Night." Edited April 5, 2014 by koops Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
