I'm a Shamy shipper and this season has been a real rollercoaster, some of the break-up episodes are still hard to watch (the scene where Sheldon and Amy meet in the hallway in 'The Perspiration Implementation' is heart-breaking). 'Earworm' got me on cloud nine and I love this Shamy 2.0, but there's something that's been bothering me about the 200th episode. It's somewhat related to the Shenny issue and I guess some of you will be groaning and thinking '¡Not again!', but I really need to get it off my chest. First of all I think that, at this point, it's been made very clear that there's nothing between Sheldon and Penny beyond friendship. She is like a sister to him, Leonard is like his brother, and I'm glad that he has that deep connection in his life now. I think it was brilliantfool who said that it would be unhealthy if every touching moment was about Amy, and I wholeheartedly agree. What bothers me of the 200th episode is that Sheldon and Penny's interactions are filled with a sense of closeness and warmth, whereas he doesn't even touch Amy. Yes, I love it when she fixes his tie (mirroring Leonard doing so in Prom), but he doesn't make even the smallest loving gesture. I'm not talking about ravishing kisses and displays of unbridled passion (though those would have been nice ), but I would have loved to see him caress Amy's cheek while looking at her with a warm smile, for example, or press a small kiss on her forehead, or even take her hand. For me there was a big contrast between the hug with Penny and this lack of physical contact with Amy (it's her who touches him when she's fixing his tie), and I felt a little bit unsettled. Sheldon didn't touch her either in the previous episode (correct me if I'm wrong), and they even cut out that little cute moment when he pats the empty chair next to him so that she comes sit there. I don't know how to convey in a better way how I feel, sorry if I don't make any sense. In any case, both of them seem to be in the same page and happy with their relationship, and that's what really matters to me. I must say this is very well put. The Shenny moments were there and most of us accept them but I agree, I kind of wondered after watching #200 again why they couldn't be holding hands in the hall as they were waiting. Why wasn't there a kiss on Valentine's Day. I love the little gestures too, like the tie and the winks but I really wish there was just a tiny bit more. I was not at all upset at the Shenny moment because as much as people want to say it looked intimate, his words are always more meaning to me then the way he looks. I hug close friends both male and female in that way. He said they were irritating but still took it because Penny was going to do it either way so he might as well accept it. Little gestures like you said, a kiss on the forehead, handholding, is that so hard, writers? Anyone? Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
