I thought Jim was so great in this! Thought this was a good Sheldon episode. He was mature and not being made to look ridiculous.

 

Didn't like the song part though, it was well written and preformed but having the gang standing in the background was far too cheesy for me. Bernadette was really good though, she brought emotion to the scene. I never thought much of her before but she owed this IMO.

 

Sheldon... again was smashing in Amy's dream sequence but what's up with Amy? What she said when he discovered the mistake was completely different, to what she said about it earlier, and the acting was flipping different too. Gawd! Are the writers telling her to do this? She's like a split personality.

No, I think Amy is very consistent.  She had an initial reaction to his finding his error and equated it to other wonderful discoveries like chocolate chip cookies.  Many were made by mistakes as well, but that didn't make them less impressive.    But the more she thought about it, she realized how it would begin to bother her, just like it did Sheldon.  It showed that their work ethic is important to them.   She realized that she herself would not want to take credit for something that happened to work in her favor because of error she had made, even if it still was a great discovery.   It is just a matter of an "initial reaction" to his success than a "now that I've had time to think about it" reaction to the whole thing.  Amy knows Sheldon and where his heart is at.  He wants his discoveries and credit to not be because of an oversight on his part, but because he truly worked it out correctly and perfectly.   I think it was very consistent with her character to say what she said.  She knew it would speak to his heart and that he would finally get over his self-pity knowing someone else understood where he was coming from.

Later at the hotel/restaurant she said "I've been thinking about it". I think her instinctual reaction at first might have been to try and console him and not get why he was upset, but then once she mulled over it she saw his point. Frankly, the more I think about it myself the more I see Sheldon's point. It's not just the fact that it was a one-off fortunate mistake but the fact that, like he said, it's going to go into textbooks and lessons and all his life he will be reminded that it came from a mistake. 

 

eta: Ah, Star beat me to it :)

Exactly!  I guess, Koops, with you and I being scientists, we relate. ;)

Well, if you think AFF is a consistent character, then we just have different ways of viewing character consistency. Don't really want to get into it, she's probably your favorite character and all.

Oh yes, I get Sheldon's point. It's the same no matter what professional we are in.

 I know you know the scenario, we all know the scenario, you missed my point entirely. I'll try to give an example - I'm sure that people know the most beautiful painting in the world exists somewhere, but it's not so interesting until you get to glimpse at it for yourself, even if it's just a picture and not the real thing. Of course those that don't give a flying toss about paintings wouldn't bat an eyelid at such a thing, but surely it's common sense to know that painting enthusiasts might enjoy it? And now that we've seen the picture, we're even more excited to see the real thing. Looking isn't always analysing.

 

...I'm not even going to bother addressing the other points. You seem to think I'm trying to force you share our opinions to understand them, that certainly isn't the case. Is it really that hard for you to simply acknowledge why we liked the scene? 

I get you liked the scene but can you understand why I may not have? Bringing up paintings to a guy that isn't interested in art and watches football on Sunday may not be the best example.

I would not say she is a consistent character all the time, but she was consistent with the nature of her character in this scene.  I agree they have written her to be rather inconsistent at times and we have all discussed that in the past.  However, just in this episode specifically, I felt she was very consistent with what they wanted to portray in her and consistent with the nature of her character overall.

I get you liked the scene but can you understand why I may not have? Bringing up paintings to a guy that isn't interested in art and watches football on Sunday may not be the best example.

Ah, but Chrismo, here was your original post and she was addressing it.  You asked:

 

Chrismo, on 25 Oct 2013 - 11:25 AM, said:snapback.png

 someone has to try to explain to me why is everyone going gaga over the tag. It was an Amy fantasy of what she would like to happen with Sheldon. Nothing new and very predictable.IMO it's just a way of making you think their relationship is advancing when it really isn't.

 

Raz was addressing this question, not your follow-on synopses.   When you ask someone to explain why they like something, they are going to answer you.   You may not agree with it; you may be the football fan instead of the romance fan, but honestly, I thought Raz explained it quite well and in a very lovely fashion at that.  Bottom line, the tag was wonderful to fans because they see hope in it.  They see it as a foreshadow of something to come.   It provides a taste of something that we can savor while we wait for the real thing.   I don't think every single scene or thing said in every episode is going to please everyone.  However, it did please a large contingent of viewers.   Can we please just leave it at that?

Lol, yes I understand why you didn't like it, which is why I said in my example "Of course those that don't give a flying toss about paintings wouldn't bat an eyelid at such a thing." In other words, You don't care for the the scene because you're not interested in shamy, I do because I am. I only elaborated because your reply to my first point indicated to me that you hadn't quite understood what I meant. I hope you're reasonably satisfied now, lol.

You had me until you mentioned I didnt like the scene because I'm not interested in the Shamy. There's been plenty  of Lenny scenes over the years I haven't liked. Does that mean I'm not interested in the Lenny? In regards to this foreshadowing the future what if this is as far as it ever gets? Just like Lenny fans are waiting for Penny's proposal what if it never happens? IMO it sort of mean in a way to tease fans that something was really going to happen and it didn't.

I agree that if this doesn't amount to anything more than a tease people will have a right to be pissed off. However, why get upset over something that hasn't yet happened instead of enjoying what has happened? I was one of those people who said "What's the point?" when we first heard of this scene in the taping report, but watching it on screen was a totally different thing and I thoroughly enjoyed it. 

 

I also think it's very telling that they did not get them to kiss. If they had wanted to just tease the audience and give us something so they don't have to commit they would have had them complete the kiss. Tons of shows have done that before. I think it's a very good sign that they're not throwing away the first kiss he gives her in a fantasy. 

 

But maybe I'll be back in a month and a half and be pissed off. But if this is actually building up to a kiss in sweeps, then it's pretty smart. We'll have to see. In the meanwhile, there's no harm in being happy.

I'm too scared for them to actually kiss now. I barely made it through the first two times Amy gave him a peck on the lips. I nearly had a seizure last night watching them lean in closer on the couch.

 

When Sheldon finally initiates a kiss, I might be the first patient in history to succumb to a furious fit of fangirling.

I agree everyone singing in the background was a bit cheesy, but Bernie's reaction made it okay for me.  :)

It was the most amazing episode. All love in this episode is so amazing, and so romantic.

I love of course how matured Sheldon was. It was really big deal for him to say that he mistaken, in front of all those people, in front of all his friends and his beloved Amy who supported him the most, who said him the truth, and it was the most romantic because she understood him and support him the most. About last scene with Amy in the zone I will write somewhere else, in our Shamy thread but it was the most beautiful scene. Beautiful love and my lovely babies... :girlinlove::cray:   :giveheart:

 

I love love Penny in that episode, how she is trying for Leonard, how she had matured, and that she want to show him how much she loves him, and she really tried hard for him. For the most of the time Leonard tried for her, did something for her to show her, to prove her his love, and with cello, with all those gestures, when he wanted to propose to her during valentines, when he tried for her and when she did, that diner and rose petals and book, it was so sweet but the most romantic thing and the most beautiful was when she took that box out with all his letters and everything he gave her, her face in that moment, and his eyes when he was so happy that she has it all. I was so touched. Beautiful love... :girlinlove:

 

Howard and Bernie. it was so romantic and this song when everyone had sang with him swaying, and lyrics were so full of love, and how much she did for him. After every problem they had every fight, all is important that he remembered about this date, and he appreciate what she did for him. So lovely and romantic.  Beautiful love... :girlinlove:

Penny only kept the FIRST pregnancy test?  What in the world?  Does someone need to explain birth control to her or is she just irresponsible? 

 

Maybe a subconscious part of her wants to get pregnant and then it will make her proposing come easier to her.   Who knows...but I looked at that as a "throw-away" joke.

Worst. Episode. Ever. They've finally reached "The gang puts on a variety show" stage.  Time for Cousin Oliver to show up.

 

Those who say I just hate the show are wrong. But I DID hate this episode.

Please when 99 % love the episode and 0.1% doesen't, maybe it's something your seeing not the episode it self. No one's saying you hate the show, but variety show? Did you even watch the episode, I have watched since Season One, I think Season 7 with that episode has already topped all S1-3.

He should just pre-post "Worst. Episode. Ever." in every new episode thread and save himself some time (because for someone who claims he doesn't hate the show, he sure spends a lot of time... well, hating the show).

 

It's harmless. Because the comment is so predictable means it has no impact on the opinions of the rest of the fan base.

Not a big deal in any event, since the only time I see his comments now is when they're quoted. I just find the predictability amusing (and just a little bit sad).
