Tensor Posted June 11, 2015 Posted June 11, 2015 But I think you're missing the intent of the writers.I wasn't aware that you were in the writing room when that scene was written, or on the set if it was rewritten. Other than that, I don't think any of us know the intent of the writers. If it's a mistake to call the bird a bluejay, then it's the writers making that mistake, not the characters.Or the writers having Sheldon make a mistake in identifying the bird, simply because he doesn't know what the bird is. If the writers intended for any of the characters to be mistaken in identifying the bird, then SOMEONE in the show would have had to have pointed out the mistake.Why? I'm not aware of any requirement like that in writing or television. And I'm not aware of any of the characters being an ornithologist or even a bird watcher. So who would have corrected him? It was a case of either the writers being mistaken/ignorant, or the writers being expedient in using the simpler, if incorrect, name.Or the writers having Sheldon misidentifying the bird, with none of the other characters knowing the difference. Which is the equivalent of the writers being expedient. If you want to look at it as that, that's fine, but Sheldon misidentifying the bird, simply because he doesn't know is also a perfectly legitimate explanation.From the Shamy topic: How long is it going to take Sheldon to get to the point where he wants to or is capable (emotionally, intellectually) of taking that step.Don't you mean, how long is it going to take the writers to get Sheldon to that point. Sheldon doesn't want anything, or is capable of taking a step. The writers tell him what to do. Amy has to decide what she wants, what she's willing to put up with, and so forth. Sheldon has to understand what it was he did wrong and figure out how to fix it, make it up to Amy or show her how he really feels, and so forth.I think you mean that the writers have to decide what Amy wants and what she can put up with. You mean what the writers did was wrong, don't you? Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
