[Spoilers]Leonard And Penny Season 8 Thread

Recommended Posts

I just expected them to act like a in love engaged couple this season. I didn't really care how many plots they got, I just wanted, when they were in the background, to have the feeling the were happily engaged. This season has given us the opposite up to the last episode. The prom was even lacking some, that is why I am not pleased with the season. Lenny is what drew me to the show, the pretty big hearted girl and the nerd finding each other.

Am I the only one that is a little excited to see the canvas when Leonard and Penny are done with it? I hope she puts it on the wall of her apartment.

Might be that they've used season 8 to rejig the board for all the characters so they've got more storylines to work with in seasons 9 & 10. Thus Lenny have been sidelined to

an extent.

Might be a sign that the writers are giving Lenny more to do in the second half of the season. It just seems that Lenny have been too quiet of late in terms of the comedy elements of

the relationship. Seems the canvas is a good way to start that up with.

 

Anyway I guess if you wanted to get Lenny out of their current comfort zone, you could possibly introduce Penny or Leonard's sibilings into the mix. But I guess

those will be saved for the lead up to the Wedding (assuming it happens and they don't stay engaged forever).

Just going to respond because... I don't actually know. I wasn't going to. But anyway! 

 

Here's the thing. I did find this season to be getting kinda boring  because everything felt SO UN-COMEDY. Like, I didn't watch the Christmas episode for about a month because it all felt so pointless to continue watching. Though I suppose being stressed and my vacationing lung did color my opinions. Shamy were moving unnaturally fast and everything else was static. I actually wanted L/P to have an argument or something just to change things up. So okay I do get that this season has fallen flat in comparison to previous seasons. But within that there have been some great moments exploring another dimension of their relationship. They did tackle the money issue; perhaps not on a huge scale but they agreed on something and learnt what not to do. I thought that was nice. Also I don't see why people though the bed money scene was ruined? We all know Penny's no nun - most things that involves sex she's probably done before. Nothing wrong with that. She wants to do that with Leonard now - yeah he's disheartened that she's already done it but it's not like they put the money away, he probably showed her some real fun on all that dollar! Yes we've seen that Leonard has taken her off her "pedestal" but it has still been a thing for a while. We're learning the deeper stuff - truly discovering those 'little things' about these characters on a different level. 

 

Perhaps the view is different for me - when I come on here to read a tonne of posts of people saying they're unhappy, you do think "well that's incredibly negative" and it kind of makes me sad. Obviously you don't have to be happy about EVERYTHING but... it was one of the reasons I stopped visiting here. It's disheartening to see so much negativity and yes, complaining, so often. Maybe that's just me as a person trying to find the positive in everything even when others don't. 

 

I don't really feel the need to respond to all those points but I just wanted to put that out there. It DOES often seem very negative and almost like other ships don't matter as much. I feel that was about some Shamy fans too, so it's not just a Lenny thing. I went into that thread a few times and was like... no this isn't for me at all. People do discuss positive things here but it seems very little in comparison - there's beauty in (almost) everything. I like S8 being slightly more chilled out for them - it means we don't use up all the super exciting stuff too soon! 

 

I am excited to see the canvas too. I can't wait to see Lisa Kudrow Penny's Mom ask "that's a nice painting - what is it?"

While Penny in no nun and Leonard knows that I think it might have been better if she had put her acting skills to work and pretended the money scene was a first.

Isn't that worse though? Just lying to him? Maybe for him it would be nicer but there's a guilt about pretending you haven't already done that with someone else.

Could have just not reacted. She didn't have to lie and say me neither. Could have just grabbed him and kissed him. But ..... The writers and their go to "jokes". The Penny has done it all takes precedence.

what's funnier is if you add up all the things she has done with the many different guys the "jokes" make no sense. she moved to Califirnia at 17 or 18, lived with Kurt four years and then moved into 4B.

I'm kind of surprised this new Penny doesn't say things like Kurt and I did this or Mike and I did that

"Leonard Hofstadter?"

"Yeees"

"Will you be my Valentine?"

:kissing:

"Penny"

"Yes"

"Will you be my Valentine?"

"NO... you Dork can't you see I am engaged to the most wonderful man in the world. Leonard Hofstadter."

Oh well.

Generally, the big changes in Lenny happen in the second half of a season.
