Base on the reports from the fans who were there I don't think this episode will cause any angst among the fans on this forum like the last few have

Er, not sure this is angst, but I find the last two episodes a little bit boring?

Did Penny appreciate Leonard in his sexy gown, at least?

The cast picture is a delight. This cast is so cute.

But now I just want soooooomething to happen. The show has definitely brought back the boys doing a lot of science and geeky stuff together. Congrats to those who wanted that, but this seems a bit dull to me.

Thanks Dana and HappyKitty for the intel...sounds like a fun episode.  

 

With regards to your observation on Jim's script...Of course these actors are all true professionals, but I am always impressed with the reports of how they absorb the re-writes on the fly during the taping.  I would find that terrifying...but these guys probably love the challenge!  :icon_biggrin:

After eight seasons of it they are probably used to having to remember new lines on the spot, but it is still a pretty amazing talent to have.

Maybe Lenny will have a second chance to fly to Jersey if Penny get's the part in the movie.

my wife said the same thing about last week's tapimg. while she enjoyed it and everything she didn't think it was that exciting or one of the best episodes of the season. she will be more disappointed not to see them eating or Lenny together so this episode might be more exciting than last Edited by Chrismo

It's hard to tell from a TR, or even reading directly from a script, how funny an episode might be.  On paper, things might sound boring that turn out to be extremely entertaining.  Or maybe it's going to be a boring episode--we'll see.  I agree there's no plot development but the finale is coming (sniffle, sniffle) so something will happen.

There's nothing like a 1 minute synopsis to convince people of the total worth of a 20 minute show! How bout we wait to watch something before we judge the boring factor.

I think people expect an ongoing plot like in LOST or something. There's always a plot, within each episode. An individual episode may not serve the overarching long term story, but to me that doesn't make any episode boring or pointless.

The episode I saw was very funny, even if it wasn't about anyone's romantic development.

ETA: It looks like there are 2 new eps on April 9 & 16, which should be Fortification Implemntation and Communication Deterioration, 8x20 and 8x22.

based off what we know, this episode highlights Lenny & Raj....who have been both neglected this season.  Even as a Shamy fan, I know they have had the spotlight a lot this season, second being Howard & Bernadette (mainly due to the whole death situation and the plots that followed). 

 

And from what we know based off the social media stuff is that it does sound like a funny episode.  A lot of times things are funnier on airing then a taping report or comments let on. 

 

And the selfie cast pic was AWESOME!!  Probably one of my favorite updated cast pics!!  So go Kaley on that one.

 

I do expect angst/drama in the final two episodes.  This one is probably the classic boys comedy which is one of the backbones of the show.

Thanks for the taping report Dana and Happykitty. I liked the way Penny helped Leonard and tried to make things work for him. I am also happy about the Sheldon-Howard scenes.

As for the boring thing well I am not sure if it's such a bad thing when someone has an opinion about an episode that hasn't aired yet. I mean why are we here anyway?? Since it was posted respectfully and clearly stated as an opinion and no more than that I think it's cool to say whatever. And if the episode turns out to be funnier than that person expected all the better right? If not that's a shame. But sometimes I find the reactions about people's dramatic reactions wayyy more dramatic if that makes sense (it probably doesn't..at least I tried :p ). Anyway it seems a little rude to say what people should say or judge or find boring as long as it is stated respectfully. Just my opinion about it.

I am disappointed that new jersey was involved and we didn't get anything with leonard's family, but I'm glad they brought Mrs koothrapalli back. I was afraid she was gone for good.

The episode really sounds like we are getting some of the good Lenny stuff we wanted in the episode. They sound like they are really acting like an engaged couple, Leonard goes to New Jersey and of course he takes his soon to be wife to show her around and maybe meet his family. It falls through and things get messed up, so she helps him fix it. This is the Lenny we wanted all season, it is just frustrating we had to wait so long for it.

Also forgot to mention that when Leonard and Penny are walking down the stairs with their luggage, Penny asks "I wonder if we can visit your mom." I forgot what Leonard said though. I just know it was a joke


Leonard would have probably introduced Penny to the rest of his family, I'm assuming

Thanks so much for the report. It sounds like a really nice Lenny as a couple story and us shippers need something like this.

The joke as I remember it was.

 

Penny: "Do you think we will have time to visit your mother while we are there?"

Leonard: "Of course. We will also have time to run my groin through a blender, but we are not going to do that either".

 

The run my groin through a blender may not be the exact quote.
