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

Another thought that popped into my head earlier, Penny could perhaps use her acting skills to seal deals.

Different looks for different potential clients. Or she could just be herself of course.

So, blue pills and injections it is. LOL. The patents just fell off Viagra. She will be selling the drug that Sheldon offered Leonard for Mrs Donor(?). The one that is to Viagra as Viagra is to a green M&M.

Just for the record I don't think Leonard needs to improve him self, or change his physical appearance to compete with the rich, good looking doctor types Penny is most likely to meet. One Penny is not that shallow, and two Penny has already dated those type of guys, their is a reason why she outgrew those type of guys, and choose Leonard. She is with Leonard because of what he offers to her life, something no guy regardless of how rich or good looking they are gives her. Apart from intellectually challenging her more then any guy ever has, the whole Lenny 2.0 Beta Version in S5 was all about deconstructing her self actualization, and her ideals and what she perceived as the perfect guy, which was a strong, rich guy to look after her. She is no longer desiring Physical Traits in her relationships, she has realized it is not the be end and end all, she has embraced her reality she is meant to be with the geek from across the hall. I mean look at Penny her self she may be very good looking, but why does it have to be Leonard worried about guys hitting on her, I mean that's so 2008 haha. Recently we have actually seen Penny's insecurities being explored, embracing the reality she is meant to be with Leonard, now she is 28 the only thing she brings to the table in their relationship is extremely good looks, so clearly this is her way of bringing balance to her life. Women like Alex and Priya for e.g. On paper are more suitable for Leonard, but at the same time also shows why Penny is perfect for Leonard and vice versa. Like Taperoo said Penny never intended to fall for the geeky guy from across the hall, she was intent on stardom, so she could easily resent Leonard haha.

 

Leonard trying to improve himself would contradict the whole reason for their relationship, which is Penny loves Leonard for who he is. The best thing he can do is keep being himself, and Penny vice versa. This gig for Penny well make her meet rich, good looking clients like Doctors e.t.c. But considering Penny's social intelligence she well cope pretty well with it, I am sure she has had tons of guys hit on her, and had a lot of experience with fending them off, like I said she is not working at a bar, this well be business dinners this ain't Penny's first rodeo. At the end of the day this well help the writers explore different dynamics in their relationship, create a power struggle some what, it is a plot device to a storyline, Lenny are endgame, this is more to do with Penny not Lenny.

 You know, I'm not one who goes with the whole Physical appearance argument with Leonard and Penny. Take away the height and lack of physique (early on -  present day Leonard has some serious biceps going on), I don't see Leonard as an unattractive specimen that is not good enough for Penny. 

 

On the other side of the coin, I find it shallow to say that all Penny has to offer to this relationship is her looks. I know this perception is highlighted in some of the writing of the show, especially from Raj and Howard (and Proton) but while the initial sighting of the blonde goddess drew Leonard in, its her inner goodness that kept Leonard going back. It may have been a stupid comment that ruined his first chance at sex with Penny, but Leonard's reference in Lime Kiss to his mother issues is a big part of the attraction. Penny has given him the kind of love he has never had before and it goes well beyond the gorgeous face and hot body. Priya lasted 1/2 a season, Stephanie 3 episodes, Alex was irrelevant. Penny has been a constant for 7 years. Same goes for Penny. Leonard cares about her life, regardless of how different it is to his on the surface. She knows its more about her looks. He even cared before the mutual attraction, after the breakup, during other relationships.

 

So yeah, the writers might use her looks as comedy gold in her interactions with Dr McDreamies selling them pharms but it will be one way traffic. She will be pushing them away to stay with her pop tart/muffin hybrid.

Well put 3ku11, but Leonard has to keep his insecurities In check.  I cant wait for the new season, seems an eternity already.  I agree 3ku11, but the writers have enough time in three seasons to explore different sides of Lenny's relationship. Will there be there friction between Leonard and Bernadette due to Penny's new job? but the writers rarely focus on those two.

I agree I think the show has shown Leonard to be the only one who is honest with Penny. Even in the first episode even though he was interested in mating her haha, he seemed genuinely concerned about her situation. Look at the second episode how he with Sheldon's help carried that damn sofa up the stairs. At first he was interested in her for her physical beauty, but as they got to know each other, gender roles were reversed (what the shows famous for). It's true when you say Stephanie, Joyce Kim, Priya, Slut Bunny have all come and gone in Leonard's life romantically, yet Penny is his only constant, and their is something intrinsically about her that keeps him coming back to her, that's more then just a physical connection, they have a spiritual and unspoken bond. A lot of the criticism of Lenny early on from some certain people, were their lack of honesty, or Leonard just wants sex from her. But re watch S1 you begin to realize, you are missing subelties to their relationship. Like Penny orgnasing a Bday Party for Leonard, Leonard not taking advantage of Penny when she was drunk in the Middle Earth EP (one of my all time fav eps from any sitcom ever). S2 Leonard the only one showing the nerve to confront Kurt, despite knowing he was going too get a beating haha. Even at the end of that episode when Penny got back to together with Kurt, Leonard diddn't mind Penny was happy Leonard was happy. So I agree most of the show is Penny's perception of her self worth, and what make's that worser despite the comedic value to that, is everyones comments, Leonard is the only one who truly does not care about her education, if he has in the past like 3x01 it was to improve herself not shed a light on how stupid she is haha. I also think the Lime Kiss scene really highlighted despite the Physical differences (Leonard ain't some hobbit though, take away the height, he is a good looking guy). The maternal similarities they have with their parents, they both have passive-aggressive relationships with their parents, Leonard never received the affection and love he desired when younger, I remember Penny's response to Leonard creating a hugging machine haha. Penny has been around good looking, rich types most of her life, she knows their type, theirs a reason why she outgrew those types, her self actualization has changed, like I said it is not her first rodeo :cool: .

Well if Lorre is in charge you can count on one thing Penny well turn into Bridezilla haha. I am just interested into what kind of time length has it been since S7 Final and S8 premeire. Have L/P been living in 4a for the whole summer or 4b, or when it returns Sheldon has been back for a few weeks, and fallen back into old patterns hope not. I hope Leonard moves out and moves in with Penny, and Sheldon lives alone for a while, I guess Amy could visit every now and then and sleep on the couch haha, as Leonard's room well always be Leonard's room.

Last season, (for the season finale) members of this BBT forum were able to take a tour of Warner Bros. studio (on Sunday) including the Set(s) for the Big Bang Theory. They confirmed the rumor that the comic book store had burned and the name of the episode (someone had left a script on the set). If anyone is in the area please take the tour and report on your findings.

I know this doesn't strictly belong here, but they haven't opened a discussion for the first episode yet.

Yeah the writers confirmed at comic con, that the comic book store won't be returning any time soon. But in the future BBT well not continue without a Comic Book Store, so it is returning at some stage. Whos knows maybe they could renovate a bit, add a Café could be the gangs new hangout, seeing they no longer have a Cheesecake Factory, and 4A is getting crowded.

They still have the other comic book store, the one Bernie bought the replacement Batman from. I can't see Stuart going back to running a comic book store after being freed from the old one. Maybe he'll take the insurance money and make a new life.

nahh, 3ku11, I cant see Penny turning into a bridzilla. She is the good girl of the three. :icon_cheesygrin:

 

Depends on how you define a "good" girl haha. I was just saying Lorre loves conflict, so if he is in charge won't be surprised if Penny goes bridezilla. Its been done in many sitcoms in the past. BBT is a comedy after all.

But it would make great comedic moments, Penny going bridzilla, or she hulk.  I think  Leonard would get the Flash costume. But I hope S8 is more about Lenny's families.  But Raj's story line is going to take a big chunk of the TBBT this season, ( sorry for digressing onto Raj).  More of alpha male and queen bee.
