I wasn't expecting anything huge to happen with Shamy, but having Amy away for two episodes in a row with nothing else than a couple of Skype calls with Sheldon does seem a little... odd. I love Shamy Skype calls don't get me wrong, but I'd really like to see how they're interacting with each other or with the group now that they're reunited. Also it seems like the group knows about the coitus. 

Sheldon going around apologizing to everyone does seem funny though. 

 

I just seems like a repeat of what we went through at the end of S8 between the Fort Episode and the break up where Mayim's appearances were extremely limited due to the death of her father.   It makes me uncomfortable.

I hope the Skype limitations are due to her schedule, the fact that they are making the eps Shamy lite and making room for Emily, or something else not tragic or sad.

Perhaps they are giving her light duty in exchange for the two heavy episodes that made her slightly uncomfortable to act.

The episode seems funny, and perhaps Sheldon is mean because Amy isn't there to care for his sickness and other things.   Maybe it's a little bit about frustration of her absence.   Amy saying she was staying away because he was sick does seem off-putting considering he took care of her when she was sick.

I know they want to keep Sheldon who he is and mix the love for Amy in there, but they don't have to make Amy say such hurtful things to the man who is now sharing his body with her.   Maybe that's why she's staying away, because he is sick, and they can't keep their hands off each other now, putting her at greater risk.

In a way, I like the fact Amy stayed away to avoid sick Sheldon antiques...I mean, it's not the coolest thing a girlfriend could do, I don't recommend it in normal circumstances, even if your SO is Sheldon, but it shows she is now feels secure in the relationship. She is not walking on eggshells anymore, being careful about anything she says and she does, like for most part of Season 8 she was. She knows that, even if she isn't always the perfect girlfriend and she doesn't always go along with Sheldon's wishes, it is not the end of the world, or of her relationship. That's a comforting thing. It's nice they keep talking on Skype (I read somewhere there were 2 Skype calls also in this episode, hope they will be cute on screen...) and that she tells him what she thinks about his behavior. This actually it's not something new, it's not Amy fixing Sheldon. Even when they were just friends, Sheldon always listened Amy's advises on pretty much everything, he valued her opinion a lot, so the fact she told him to show more empathy with his friend made him think and he agreed it was thee right thing to do. And...in my wish list for Christmas, now there is that shirt!!!

I agree with the rest with you guys, I think it was a funny episode, it continues to show some character development for Sheldon in a funny and lighthearted way, no drama about the fact Amy was still out of town, but I really need a full group interaction and dinner ASAP!!! 

Oh, and even if it is really a strange destination for Sheldon, which has always hated Las Vegas, I think that with his eidetic memory he can make a fortune in any casino, so...good luck to him!!! 

I agree totally.  Obviously, as an Amy fan I wished we'd see more of her.  But it sounds pretty funny.  Also, him asking for her advice again, not just taking her advice, seeking it.  I've wanted to see that forever.

I think so...she published in Groknation an article about the new SW movie and how much excited she is about it, but she can't go to the movies until next week, since she is busy...I mean, if she had something sad\big going on, I don't think her main worry would have been when watching The force awakens...But I'm paranoid too, so I fully understand you!!!

When I read that she wouldn't be able to see SW until next week because she was busy I took it that she would be busy with TBBT stuff, but it must be something else.

Thanks for all the info and input everyone! Mayim posted a pic yesterday on instagram about it being taping day. I think they are still making Sheldon grow while still keeping him Sheldony. In past episodes (and I can't remember which ones) he has been told/we have seen he is demanding/jerk when he is sick. I like having shamy on the back burner for now but it does feel out of place that they would get a party bus and that Emily and Penny are getting along. I can't wait to see the edited version play out on screen.  I want to know more about Leonard/Penny therapy,

Again thanks shamydawson for the taping report. I look forward to everyone's opinions.

I never expected an episode of everyone finding out so I kinda was expecting a line like Raj said to let viewers know that yes the group knows they had sex and its business as usual.

I think they are going light on Shamy cause we are coming off hugely impactful very heavy Shamy episodes for the first half. I also think the point of last nights episode was to prove that Sheldon is still Sheldon but slightly 2.0 because like a dog without a bone (pun) he will listen and do whatever Amy suggests. She is able to see things differently and while a disaster he is really starting to appreciate everyone now and thank them & apologize. We saw that in earworm and here we see it again. And yes its comforting to know she isnt at his beck and call so she is confident in the relationship. And he skypes her from his bedroom. Intimate enviroment!!.

I do still hope we will get a group season with all 7 soon!!

Also who is this Emily you speak of??? An extra?? Lol.

This is perfection.

I love how vintage Shamy is back. So funny how Amy stays away cause Sheldons sick :laugh: love it love it love it. 

It is a werid episode though. Still not sure why Sheldon wants to go to Vegas but whatever :) I'm just glad everything back to normal. It's beginning to feel like the improved S8 :biggrin: 

was there not a flash mob last night?

also who the fuck is Emily? :rofl:

In other news, am I the only one who is getting more and more irritated by them not going anywhere near addressing wtf is going on with Raj and Emily? I really like Laura and I liked Emily's character to an extent, but it's really annoying me that they made such a big production about how she's not the right girl for Raj, yet here they are... still dating after 2 years, like it's nothing out of the ordinary. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm so hungry for some character development for Raj right now it's driving me nuts.

It's driving me (sideways) bananas that Rajily hasn't been addressed this season! I know that Shamy has been dominating screen time this season, but Raj is one of my favorite characters too and there are so many loose ends with his story!

Possibly but then it didn't bother him when he couldn't join in on guy discussions of their sexual experiences? (Just looking at the wider picture). Why not is not being part of something bugging him? Least of all Vegas when it's a city filled with eveything Sheldon dispises? I know he's changed but he's still Sheldon when it comes to most things.

No I'm pissed off with it too. It's almost like Kunals pissed off the writers and they're just not pushing Raj's character development anymore but they'll have him around because Kunals still under contract. I dunno. But it's very frustrating. Do Rajily (made that up) fans actually exist? Cause I'd be throwing things at the wall if I was them :laugh: 

I want him to get back with Lucy :laugh: Emily bores the fuck out of me. I'm not buying this 'pretty girl with a fucked up side' thing

After reading this I actually feel tons better about Amy staying out of town for 3 extra days to avoid cranky Sheldon (so thank you for that!) While I think it's kind of crappy that she wasn't there to be by her sick SO's side, I agree that it's good that she no longer seems to be walking on eggshells with him and has the balls to say "if you're gonna act like that and take your loved ones for granted, they aren't going to want to be around you" - which is exactly what happened both with Amy staying away longer and the group planning a trip without him. (And I'm sure after recently getting back together Amy doesn't want to get in a stupid fight with him right away! lol) 

Sheldon in turn learns that he can't expect everyone to always be there for him when he's a jerk, and I love that he always takes Amy's advice... definitely the writers showing us that old school Shamy is alive and well :) So since he wants to be included in his friends' plans and he certainly wants Amy to come home to him, he tries to adjust his behavior accordingly... in his own Sheldon-ish "look I made you an apology t-shirt!" way :derisive:

Guys I really don't get the fact amy is avoid from sheldon because of he is sick ? is that really in the TR or just a guess... and I don't understand Raj's coitus joke either.The gang know coitus ? or just a classic jokes about sheldon ? If they knows why they act like it's a normal thing for sheldon ?

My guess is that we'd have to wait to watch the episode to fully understand the plot. It's odd that Amy is away but I agree that Mayim's schedule might have to do with it.

Yes, the boys apparently knew off screen about Shamy and are not making a big deal out of it; I like the choice, TBH; I've rather preferred to see on screen the moment somebody (Sheldon? Penny? Bernie?) told them about the coitus, but after that and some jokes here and then (I think there will be a few more jokes about it in the future) it's a good thing the gang don't treat they like they made something so extraordinary...As for Amy being out of town, apparently she said  (it was a threw away line for me) that she remained at the conference because he was acting like a jerk, as he usually does when he is sick. But that is the point of the whole episode, he drove everybody crazy during his cold, and the  gang wanted to escape from him. If Amy were there with him, of course she would have been the only one in charge for curing him during the illness, and the others would have been safe from his quirks, so no episode any more!
