It would be nice if they wrote all the couples equally but in my opinion season 8 has been all one sided good for shamy bad for lenny

Leonard and Penny are on their way to get married in Vegas while Sheldon and Amy are currently "on a break". It isn't that one sided.

And Shamy fans could argue that Season 6 was horrible for Shamy and good for Lenny and Season 7 was okay for both, but not great for either.   They write stories going a direction they want to go, but sadly we don't get to pick and choose.  We can only watch and either try to enjoy or tune out.

Really. Those are the same ones that  thought this finale only saw the bad in the Shamy storyline too. I must of missed all the aghast for Shamy in season 6.

You could also say S6 wasn't as one-sided as S8

I think that it was pretty bad due to their disagreement over physical intimacy and a lack of any serious development up until The Love Spell Potential, that was a disappointmentl especially given the hand holding at the end of season five finale. And most of Lenny shippers only seem to see bad things in season eight finale about Lenny storyline too. Edited by Mislav

I really don't remember any disagreement over physical intimacy.

Not really a disagreement, it was mostly Amy's comments about it being used as a joke, it became too much after a while and it wasn't really funny. The Shamy storyline in The Love Spell Potential was basically a disagreement regarding that but it ended well. And there wasn't any real relationship development except for that episode.

But Amy knew what she was getting into with having a relationship with Sheldon. In reality  what happened in the finale should have happened back in season 6. If that did I could buy the argument of season 6 being one sided.

And Sheldon chose to stay in a relationship with Amy despite the fact that her attitude about intimacy had changed. People change but that doesn't mean that is a deal breaker regarding a relationship. It is obvious by now that Sheldon has a desire to be intimate with her too. And we aren't discussing is it justified or not, or who is more at fault, but the way the relationship was written in that season.

What quality do you mean standing in the back ground and smiling

I mean, the fact that Sheldon and Amy had lots of scenes doesn't mean much if the relationship wasn't developing well at the time. Edited by Mislav

I said this earlier somewhere but women are exactly pounding on his door to see if he's available. Also the whole group is paired up now and I think that also makes a difference.

Writers also often make Leonard show up at the end of a scene showing Shamy doing something weird in order to increase the comic effect. I have no problems with that and I have no problems with Lenny/Sheldon interactions. Lenny should have gotten more screen time but Sheldon would mostly show up after their moments were over, he wouldn't interrupt them in mid sentence or cause much distress.

What...? Sorry, I really don't understand any of this. Can you... word it differently, please? Edited by Mislav

Not as much as Sheldon interupting lenny and even sleeping on penny's couch. I wonder what Amy would think if she found out.

Women find Sheldon very attractive, until he opens his mouth. Haha!

Even if Sheldon were available, he wouldn't be interested in another woman. Sheldon has become a better man because of Amy, and he knows it. Every development he has made, every phobia he has slowly let go of is because of her influence and his desire to be a better man for her. It just so happens that everyone is benefiting from his changing attitude, but Amy is the catalyst.

Amy completes Sheldon. If ShAmy were to break up, I don't see Sheldon giving anyone else a try. He would be completely broken and might just resort back to or become worse than what he was before her.

I'm not quite following the conversation. It is confusing.

However, regarding the above statement, Amy would just crop this up to Sheldon just being Sheldon.

He should be making plans about spending a night a week with Amy not lenny.

It means that he has a certain difficulties that are known. It isn't making excuses. His fears of change are mostly due to his OCD and diificult family situation in his childhood, which is a serious thing. But if course it is always easy to just say "you can't say that Sheldon is just being Sheldon, that doesn't mean anything and I'm getting tired of it". Have you actually tried reading more into it?
