On one hand, I like that they show a character who doesn't have a "perfect" figure and she is totally fine with it, but on the other hand it feels like they have to make her look less attractive and bulkier on purpose because that's the way "nerdy" females are portrayed on television, and this is something I don't like.

I'd like her to dress a little more like Bernie. Not with short sleeved cardigans and heels, but with day dresses and her usual cardigans or blazers just to "mix things up a bit".

Yeah, but nerdy guys also don't all dress like the guys on this show, yet we don't say that the guys should get makeovers to make a statement about how male nerds dress. I don't think the show is trying to represent all types of nerds out there. Bernie is also a scientist and she dresses and acts more 'normal'. I don't think Amy dresses like she does because she's scientist or nerdy, but simply because it's her personality. She likes bargains inherited from her grandmother and all that stuff and thinks they're amazing. She just has a horrible fashion sense, bless her. :p I don't think Amy has to be a poster girl for anything other than herself.

I don't think they should do an episode where Amy gets a makeover and everyone's fawning over how beautiful she looks and then Sheldon says she's gorgeous the way she normally is. It just seems so out of character for him, mainly because he really doesn't care what Amy looks like, he likes her because she's intelligent and has a quirky personality, so he wouldn't say that a change in appearance somehow changes Amy.

Exactly. It seems similar with his line to Penny: "Does your weight affects your self confidence?" or st like this... He just don't get the importancy of anyone appearance and doesn't care for it, indeed.

While I understand he doesn't care what Amy looks like, I find it depressing that Amy would go her whole life with Sheldon and never hear him say she was beautiful or attractive or, at the least, aesthetically pleasing.

 

I think he will do that, in his own way.

 

Like he did when he called her a cute lump of wool. To me that is his way of saying he likes the way she looks.

But I really think he will say it in a more obvious, but still Sheldon way eventually.

Exactly. So I do not think it is OOC for him to compliment Amy on her appearance. Maybe not this season, but it would happen eventually. It needs to.

Yes I don't find it OOC either. It's a fact that he doesn't care about her appearance and that he loves her cause of her brain.But that doesn't mean he doesn't find her beautiful. I think in his case the fact that she is an intelligent scientist is leading him to like the way she looks. I don't know how to better explain it. For example many times I find myself considering someone beautiful just because I like their personality. Plus he already called her cute!!!!!!! What I want to hear Sheldon saying is that he loves the barete on her hair. And of course that she is aesthetically pleasing. I think Sheldon knows what is considered beautiful or not(once he told Penny no one is that cute and that good in video games) but he doesn't care for that. But that doesn't mean that it is impossible for him to like Amy's appearance. It's just that this wasn't why he wanted Amy to be his girlfriend and I wouldn't find it OOC for Sheldon to believe that despite what others think of beauty and what makes a woman beautiful he knows better. Of course he wouldn't be all that wrong cause Amy is gorgeous anyway :)

I think Amy is adorable. I loved her outfit in The Table Polarization, more cute cardigans plz! Maybe she just need to try something different with her hair, just looks flat to me.

On another note, there was an interview where Mayim said she would like some leather hot pants like Olivia Newton John in grease. Jim's reaction was too cute.
