Ugh ... This episode was terrible. I thought it was poorly written, and I think the writers have finally run out of ideas on what to do with Len/Pen. Howard's song was goofy and I think I've just about had enough of Amy mooning after her asexual boyfriend.

These "relationship" episodes are the WORST!

If this is what this show is going to be all about now, this may be the last season I watch it... What a shame. It used to be so brilliant.

Wow your so consistent lol, seeing this episode had a ton of science even in the great relationship moment's, I don't see how any of your points have any validity at all, thought it was one of the best eps ever in the series. Ran out of ideas? I thought this was Leonard and Penny's greatest moment, it's great having opinions but your sounding like a broken record. This season has been the best in year's, I mean if no one was in a relationship it would be really hollow and shallow, then there would be the same ppl complaining nothings changed, it would get old pretty fast. But hey you diddn't like it which isin't a surprise, I loved it so what has really changed. As for poorly written come on even you cannot beleive that, the whole Howardette anniversary song was a stroke of genius from the writer's, incredible continuity, that scene well go down as one of TBBT best ever scenes, and Amy mooning? Telling Sheldon she think's he's is a fraud for his acheivement, yeah that's mooning, and why wouldent' she? They are in a relationship. I'm laughing at your attempt at discrediting the Lenny scene, of course you think it's running out of ideas, but the whole idea of Penny keeping all that stuff, and not realizing she had been romantic this whole time, was great writing and really fresh, this ep also prooved the incredible chemistry Leonard and Penny have, and that they have a lot more in common then just sex, more then ppl give them credit for.

I agree with all the glowing reviews this episode has gotten so far.  This is another example (along with the Nimoy napkin and the tiara) of something very sweet that's simultaneously laugh-out-loud funny.  TBBT is pretty consistent at delivering these moments that are satisfyingly heartfelt without overdoing it, and sticking to the fact that it's a comedy.  This episode was also very original.  I've never seen anything like it on another show.

 

In terms of the relationships, did you guys notice how easily the ILYs now roll off Penny's tongue?  She cared enough about him to keep all that stuff even while they were broken up.  It reinforces that she really sees him as the love of her life; it's not just Leonard who feels that way about her.  Also, after last week's Shamy and Howardette fights, this episode has both couples clearly back on track.  Shamy are perfectly in tune.  Acting was great all around.  Either Simon and Melissa got choked up for real during the song, or both did an amazing job of acting it.

 

I tried to look through the beginning and ending credits, but I didn't notice Micucci and Lindhomme credited for the song.  Did I miss it?  I heard the song before finding out they wrote it, but once I did, it 100% sounds like them.  The song is brilliant.  It's my favorite moment of s7 so far, and probably in my top 3 for the series.

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

Do you really think I'm trying to impact anyone's opinions? Really? I don't think ANY opinions out could ever be changed. I'm just offering my own. I don't know why it bothers all of you so much that I don't agree with the vast majority.

 

So far this season I've rated 3 Very Good, 1 Okay, 1 Bad and 1 Very Bad.  I'll bet that's much less "predicatable" than the vast majority. Do you accuse those who vote every episode Excellent of being "predictable"? Hmmmm?

Well it's relative really all the post's I have seen from you have been I diddn't like this horrible episode lol, but maybe I haven't seen your other post's. Some people may be bothered by the fact not saying this is you, but if 99% loved the episode but 0.1% diddn't, and someone maybe be consistent on a thread about it, it stand's out more, sure everyone's entitled to an opinon, just saying it work's both ways.

My heart thudded to the floor when they did the song. What a low point in the show. Not my favourite episode but I will say Sheldon/Jim has been on top form and the season started strong, but I expected a few stinkers.

Low point? Funny because their's a poll saying it was one of the best moment's of the entire series, it's funny people having opinions and automatically thinking it mean's fact. And not sure why you would expect a few stinker's, it's not like TBBT has a reputation for sucking haha, I thought the Howard song was awesome was expecting it too be corny, but it wasen't had a mix of science, comedy, and drama really touching JMO.

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.

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

 

 

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?

 

Emphasis mine. Completely agree, Star. Some of those viewers which I want to add, are Male. See, unlike what some people over here believe about Shamy being a chick thing (as if that's a bad thing    :icon_rolleyes:) , they probably don't go around to other forums of discussion - such as avclub, reddit or facebook where the majority of the commentors were male and commenting about how badly they wanted to see a kiss between Sheldon & Amy after that tag - infact most of them solely talked about the the Shamy scenes. So there are men who like and analyze Shamy? *shock horror* Apparently, people will just believe what they want to believe even if not true.  What can you do?  :girlsigh:

 

Also guys, can we cut djvang some slack? So he/she didn't like the episode - that's fine, he's entitled to his opinion. I don't see the point to calling him and/or insulting him for it. We're better than that.

I'll be more than happy to cut him some slack, as soon as he cuts other people some slack. He offers what he keeps saying is his opinion of the show, in a rather derogatory and insulting fashion, and evidently expects no one to defend the show. It's also rather hypocritical of him to complain about others stating their opinion of his opinion of the show, when he demands others allow him his opinion.

I don't have a problem with posters civilly debating against his opinion. But a lot of posters are attacking him personally for his opinions on the episode. So he finds it the worst episode ever, but to be called insulting names (djpessimist) and told to just pre-post his opinions in a derogatory manner - honestly, that's crossing a line. I don't know why people don't just let him be instead of emphasizing to him that it has no impact on the opinion of the fanbase. Well, no shit - I don't think any of us are trying to post our opinions to convice each other, we just want to discuss our thoughts on the episode. So what if he found it the worst episode ever - his opinion does not make it true but he is entitled to it. Moreover, he has not personally attacked anyone - so I don't get why there are forum posters name-calling him and attacking him personally for his opinions.

Dude is getting a high dose of his own medicine. You have no idea how he has treated others around here in the past (and probably to this day, I have him on ignore so I don't see what he does anymore, thank God). He can play the victim all he wants these days but everyone see's right through it. He has a right to dislike whatever he wants. That's no issue in my eyes. What IS an issue is that he has been known to be very disrespectful to those who feel differently than he and that's EXACTLY why he gets this kind of treatment now. He hasn't attacked anyone today? Good. Let's hope it stays that way.

So does that mean we have to resort to his level? How are we better than him, then? I get that he's said some things in the past but I think when it comes to this episode thread - we should just discuss our opinions on the episode, not personally attack other people. Like I said earlier, we're better than that.

Not in my opinion. I visibly cringed. No one is automatically thinking their opinion is fact but we all have different tastes.

Why do people get so uptight about one poster's opinion. Even if he/she calls you names or makes derogatory comments. Remember sticks and stones.......

An excellent episode for me. It was very emotional and consistant for our favorites ships : Shamy, Lenny and Howardette. Even Raj had his modest part but nicely fitted. It made me hold my breath and laughed out loud at the same time. Howard geeky song was perfect, Penny romantic gesture was IMO one of the best they could have gave her and the Shamy... Oh my.... the Shamy.... Beside the "most romantic" line from Sheldon which his my favorite part, the last scene was a cunning teaser for a SIK. The writers really got me. Ha ha

Yeah thought this was episode of the season so far, and now really looking forward to Proton next Friday should be really good, a full on Science Episode. Obviousley the whole relationships is a big thing in the tbbt fandom, but tbh they made the show better. As if we were still watching a show about four lonely nerd's and their hottie neighbour, and Leonard was bringing over mail just as an excuse to talk to her, nothing changing, no one growing. It would be in a constant state of homeostasis. If Howard was still creepy, Penny was still isolated, Leonard was still submissive, Sheldon was still narcissistic, Raj was still mopy or a douche when drunk haha e.t.c. That premise would die pretty fast, the show has outgrown that premise after the first three season's, the character's maturing is what make's the show so unique and different. I have the feeling some don't like eps after three season's, because of supeirity complex, and nostalgia, everyone want's Sheldon to be a condesending ass till the end of the show, kinda the same with Seinfeild, they never changed at all, and neither did the premise, they remained self narcissistic, self indulgent, and jerk's to the end. And depending on your personal preferance that's maybe okay for some, but the first three season's if that was still happening I would get bored pretty quick, the show's been at it's best since Season Four IMO because of this. I mean you woulden't expect these character's in real life to not change at all in seven year's, so why do people expect it in a sitcom anyway. I get the character's don't need to change like Sheldon for example, for the sake of plot and character progression, but TBH it's the only way anything changes in situational comedies.

I called him djpessimist because when you read the tone of the thread it's all find and dandy until you read his post.  I said it with a smile on my face in jest, so I suggest you stop taking it so seriously.

A Bad episode for me. Sheldon was great, really loved him this episode. And I even could tolerate Amy (she constantly changes her character, I've given up on her where she really stands).

Howard's song with the gang was really goofy. Too long and way overdone imho - I didn't feel a thing. Howard is so boring now that I'm really beginning to think the writers have to bring in the baby - that's most likely the only storyline H&B have left. Oh dear. :(

L&P were mediocore. So Penny just can't come up with a romantic idea / evening? It all seemed so forced. I pity Leonard, poor guy.

 

Thanks to Sheldon and his outstanding performance, this episode was somehow saved.

 

EDIT: changed too Bad.

That's the part of the episode that I hated. It reminded me of the Brady Bunch putting on a variety show or Potsie singing.

Read what I said again. I said your opinion is "harmless". It bothers me for not even a nano-second and my opinion should effect you just as much.

 

You are perfectly free to hate the episodes all you like but the perception is that we only seem to hear from you when you want to rain on the happy delirium the fan base goes into when they see an episode that they respond to as great.

 

Maybe I missed your comments on episodes you like.
