[Spoilers]Leonard And Penny Season 8 Thread


Recommended Posts

Hence next taping Lenny get first kiss of the season, big plot. Reinforcing the idea Lenny don't need to take part in a social expierement to fall in love. They can stare at each other, be romantic for free lol. Their love is not artificially produced, its real and genuine. That's how I saw it anyway. Intimacy Acceleration regardless won't go down as a all time fav of mine in any case haha.

See you tomorrow Mike!!

I agree that she wasn't in love with him at the Halloween party, she was never in the love at first sight mode, like he was. The Halloween party just gave the audience the first proof that there was

Now we have to make sense? Oh Rick you ask so much of me... :icon_razz:

Did I miss a memo? I've wasted so much time scrolling through S8 thread my brain has forgotten what making sense looks like![emoji12]

Anyway, can't change what's happened in the story telling this year so just sailing through this week's episode laughing at bits I find funny until body paint arrives. And I do have a soft spot for helicopters with cameras.

That is another episode I don't understand, why can't Leonard have some success and get a reward, that could be really funny. They could pull a reversal, going to a banquet and women flirting with him and acting like Penny is not there, making her see what he goes through. Also Sheldon would be so jealous and that would be funny. It seems like they are throwing away a good plot for Leonard and Lenny just to get some Sheldon time. I think Lenny dressed up for an awards banquet while Shamy sits at the apartment, because jealous Sheldon refuses to go, would be funny, especially if Penny says as they leave "who are the less smart lab rats we should do experiments on now"? Anyway Leonard getting a success story seems much better the a story about who gets credit in a magazine article. Edited by SRAM

Trying to flee the battles on another thread and not wanting to get upset, I inadvertently stumbled upon promo photo for tomorrow night's episode, the staring into the eyes bit, in case you're wondering. 

 

OMFG.

 

Normally, I'd vent, rant, spread some negativity (I've been accused of that! Can you imagine! Pfffffft! Some say negativity, I say righteous indignation, but I digress) about the season eight Lenny disservice. But no more. I've found a lovely spiritual center, I've got my Om, and the lovely visuals of a lush body art canvas while a little helicopter with a camera whirls overhead.

 

Ah! Best sex tape ever!

The test would make no sense with Lenny because we know they love each other.Penny is not going to fall in love staring at Sheldon. Sheldon on other hand looking into Penny's eyes. I better stop now.

nahh, Penny looks at Sheldon as her brother.  Leonard would go grazy if something happen between Penny and Sheldon, why even bring it up.

Post hidden.  Persianstud, the rules for ship zones are here, please read them.  The main thing for ship zones is they are for supportive statements of the ship.     gsxdoug, Tonstar17, you both know better than to answer posts like that, report them, don't answer them.   IAteAButterfly, you need to look at the rules for ship zones also, your post was hardly supportive and as someone who doesn't ship the couple of the thread, inappropriate.  Strawberry Pop Tart, thank you for following the proper procedures.

I've watched every single episode of this series, and I have to say, I'm baffled by the concern some Lenny's and Shamys have over the Intimacy Acceleration episode.  

She definitely seemed a bit intrigued by Leonard and, in my opinion, shared a few flirty glances with him. I could be wrong, but I felt the writers were very subtly laying the foundation for the future Lenny relationship in the pilot episode.

The relationship Penny has with Leonard (romantic) has been completely different than the relationship Penny has with Sheldon (friendship). 

The only reason I'm annoyed by this upcoming episode is that we are missing out on time that could have been spent on a Lenny story. I'm a Shamy and a Lenny (I know, weird), but feel we've been saturated with Shamy goodness this season and deprived of Lenny loving to the point that it feels unnatural.

Tensor, thanks.  I wasn't familiar with "ship zones'.

 

  I thought I was "supportive" of the Leonard-Penny relationship.  I did say they were a cute couple. 

 

 

One comment that says their cute, then five derogatory or diminishing comments about one of the members of the couple is hardly supportive.

This is exactly the point. The TR makes it sound like at first Penny is having fun with Sheldon, pushing him again, and she even seems to seek Leonard's approval to do it. But then it gets weird, it is another Sheldon and Penny telling each other their honest thoughts and trying to do this love test seriously. Didn't we have enough of this the first episode of season 7, when Leonard was away and Shenny was telling their secrets to each other. This is not funny, it is weird at this point, Sheldon and ENGAGED Penny acting this way, the time would have been better used on the test being done by Lenny and made funny, maybe even having it confirm their love or maybe getting them excited for each other, ending up in the bedroom. Like I said, Penny is engaged, this sexual innuendo needs to stop with Sheldon, no matter how innocent they try to make it. We need some Lenny in love in these episodes, it has really been too long now. Maybe Penny needs to plan a real kick-ass birthday party for Leonard and make sure he gets to go to it.

Is the lack of "Lenny" due to Kaley's marriage to Ryan Sweeting?  Maybe Kaley told TPTB that Ryan doesn't feel comfortable with Kaley doing romantic scenes with an ex of two years?  Now obviously they are professionals and should be able to handle it.  That said, I think it's different in this case because it's not just two actors acting out a romance.  The actors themselves were actually involved in real life.  And maybe Ryan was getting jealous.  Because I have noticed that Penny and Leonard are less "romantic" since mid s7.  And they got married around then. 

 

That said, I completely agree.  Penny and Leonard are engaged.  At this point, it seems like their relationship is more platonic than anything else.

 

Tensor, yea, I realized it wasn't supportive but I've never been on a TV message board before.  So I wasn't familiar with "ship zones" until you pointed it out.

Highly doubtful.

 

Wait for the body paint episode.

Ryan's fears would have no effect with TPTB.  She signed the contract for them to pay her at least $90 million for three years, she does what the script calls for.   If she feels strong enough to tell them Ryan doesn't like it, then she should feel strong enough to refuse to do any of those types of scenes, she hasn't.  They are acting, that's their job.  If they don't want to do it, fine.  

 

They were engaged prior to getting married mid season 7 and they still had those type of scenes together,  I highly doubt Ryan has any concerns.  Kaley said in a interview that if her boyfriend had a problem with her kissing Johnny on the show, he's not the guy for her.  Kissing Johnny was her job.  There have been takes where they kissed this year, they just haven't made it to broadcast as other takes were used, in addition, as gsxdoug pointed out, the body paint episode, from the taping reports, has some major kissing scenes .  

 

Not all boards have the same rules.  If you haven't looked are the overall forum rules.  The ship zone rules only apply to certain threads that are marked.

How is any of this supportive of The Leonard & Penny relationship?

i agree hokie3457, tonigth;s episode is not supportive of Lenny at all, the writers need to have much more Lenny moments.  Lenny are at their best when they they do something together, they work as one; total harmony between them.

i m not sure if real life trickles to Lenny.  Making a million an episode, would make most actors almost do anything in the set, i dont buy Lenny less visual intimacy on Kaley being married. I think the writers are just making sure the other couples are set up and Lenny will dominate S10.  So the argument of Kaley being married is the reason for Lenny's less intemacy does not justify Lenny;s less intemacy.  That argument does not have enough propensity.

large monetary payouts overules anything on the set, real life stays outside the door.

The body paint episode sounds interesting. Anyone have any promo pics showing it?

Mid season 7 is around when it started getting less sexual for me...since Penny's drunken proposal that Leonard rejected. They were real horndogs in s3. It seemed like every scene with them involved...which is pretty normal since it was so early in their relationship (well for Penny anyway). And started getting more serious in s5.

But at the same time that Penny proposed, it actually, IMO, showed a real maturation in her character. After all, she said she had to start making GOOD decisions. And marrying Leonard is a good decision that she would NOT have made in s3.

I like your post but after your first post on here. I don't know where you're coming from or if your really invested in lenny or just Penny and Sheldon. Wrong thread to be if you are. Edited by Tonstar17

...!

 

I also agree with others in this thread who have been disappointed in the lack of romantic scenes between Penny and Leonard.  

After 8 years of desperately chasing each others tails (*snicker*) a breakup seems unlikely now, even though we had been well conditioned to expect a recurrence. Furthermore, I speculate TPTB are whipping Shamy along to get them closer to L/P so that they can run the two pairs against each other in the "Wedding Belles Stakes", the conclusion of which may be the event that splits up the happy full house and perhaps represents the finishing post. Hence the lack of visible fun for our duo. They are being affectionately nobbled. TPTB may not have had this intention, but I think it's a genuine effect. Or some other cause altogether is at work. :)

OK, the hidden posts are why only supportive statements are allowed in the ship zones. If you see something you think doesn't belong in the thread REPORT IT don't answer the post publicly.   Tonstar, this is the second time in as many days you've been reminded to report posts, not to answer them.  It would be in your best interest to start reporting them.   Persian, denigrating Leonard by pumping up Sheldon (Sheldon is the only take charge guy), IS NOT SUPPORTIVE of an individual in the ship.  Nor is talking about Sheldon, Amy or Shamy in the Lenny thread a good idea.  I would suggest you both take a look at the rules, both the forum and the ship zone rules
