[Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10

Well, Leonard is Sheldon's best friend. He wanted to say goodbye, too. It was a beautiful scene nevertheless.

But it is not neccessary. To have Sheldon. When the plot or the scene was not about him. I mean even recently this season 10.02. Penny was having issues with Bernie. And they made Penny go to Sheldon. That would of been a perfect oppurtunity for her to discuss it with her husband. But they uneccesarily forced Sheldon into the plot. Because well Sheldon needed more screen time apparently. Hijacking their wedding wasen't enough :icon_cheesygrin:. That is the problem for Lenny for me. Lack of isolated scenes, and poor communication. 10x22 seems to be a rare time where that is not apparent. I mean you thought Sheldon gone, more Lenny time, nope.

This, I totally agree. 

I have friends who are hard core Sheldon fans, and really remember every one of his traits and quotes. So when the writers changed the three knock thing to some cliche drama, they were NOT happy. Oh, and me too, I may add.

If they were hardcore they would of remembered he didn't knock three times early in season1.

Well tbf the show has changed cannon so many times regarding Sheldon's knock. I thought it was just part of his peculiar character and ways. But then to find out he does it because Daddy Dearest cheated. I thought was such a stupid decision, it is just creepy now lol.

Though they did share a passionate kiss and funny dialogue leading up to them going to the bedroom, they weren't shown in bedroom. Later Penny, Leonard and Raj are in the hallway and hear them talking "dirty" while they're doing it. The funniest part of the taping for me was watching Mayim and Jim sit fully clothed (off camera) on the couch and crack up trying to say those lines.

Thanks so much for that! Attending a taping is something really cool, isnt it? I just love to read how the viewers who had that experience felt about it! :)

Necessary has nothing to do with it.  Sheldon being unnecessarily intrusive as a matter of course is part of his shtick.  The show would have died at birth if it was nothing but couples having cutesy conversations about their relationships.  It's bad enough now with Shamy bedtime scenes every week.  The only reason that sort of works is because it usually has to do with Sheldon being obtuse in some amusing way.

Judith-in the final scene sheldon is packing Amy's car and they talk and a key line stands out which is. When Amy is about to drive of and sheldon says don't fall in love with any other scientist I think this is going to be key for ep24

Thanks so much for that! And that's it. We are one taping from finale! These months were realy fast!

Ah, well! No fear! I'm sure the writers of The Sheldon Show will give Shamy a sweetly tender, memorable parting without any asinine clowns interrupting it.    

Seems to me Shamy has the "asinine clown" built in.

I'm probably a minority in this, at least in part of what I'm about to say, but:

I tolerate, don't have a problem with, or laugh at some examples of: Sheldon disturbing Lenny (mostly when it's more Lenny opposite Sheldon, not Leonard and Penny opposite each other and Sheldon burging in), Sheldon child (especially with Lenny as surrogate parents), Sheldon dog, Tough Bernadette, Mrs. Wollowitz-esque Bernadette, spoiled/selfish Howard.

The thing is, to me, about context and doses. The doses of the first 2 are completely off to me. The Bernie ones I find fine and wouldn't mind even a little more of them. Howard I find perfectly fine. Sheldin dog is barely there anymore and I never found it too much when it was, IMO it was very little and I took it as light comedy and didn't feel it was too demeaning. 

Of course, there are also the ones I can't take any of, like he wore her down, won the trophy hot chick, Stuart is a complete looser (I like it much better when he is somewhat manipulative), Sheldon claiming Lenny should break up, Scientists/nerds need a miracle to find a partner, Shamy are lousy because they don't have as much sex as most couples do (hopefully we are getting rid of that!) and Penny is stupid (but this one is mostly gone and was never very present after the pilot, there were just these completely off ones like "The Proton Ressurgance").

This notion Sheldon HAS to be in Lenny scenes, does not fly with me. And I still think Neccessary is appropriate. The first three seasons alot of the big Lenny MOMENTS or milestones, were just Lenny. The famous Lenny first kiss Middle Earth Paradigm. Imagine if Sheldon interuppted? That scene set the tone and standard for the show. Painting Leonard as the heroe. So I agree Sheldon is the breakout star of the show. And it is a winning formula for casuals. I am just saying their is times wher Sheldon was in a scene when it was absurd. Their original wedding as an example.

Sheldon was always waking up Leonard in the middle of night to say weird stuff.  So, yes, it's intrusive, and that's always been part of his schtick.  He's intrusive. Now, Amy is the target of these midnight missives.  Sheldon had no business being at the airport.  Penny is blunt enough to tell him 'No'.   Being in the wrong place at the wrong time is his 'thing'.

I wouldn't get enjoyment out of TPTB wrecking Shamy. Just because they're writing my beloved couple horribly overall doesn't mean I want the same for everyone else. The most I would do is breathe a sigh of relief because if they had Sheldon cheating on Amy it'd mean TPTB aren't specifically just crapping on Lenny, it'd mean they're just shit writers in general without any respect for their audience and it'd be very easy for me to dump the show. And for the record: I wouldn't put it past them. They've got two more years to clean up a potential mess.

That's how I picture them picking up their pay checks. That'd be me for sure. LOL.

This year I've seen the word "Transhumanism" crop up quite a lot. I'd never seen it before. I haven't gone into it, but it seems superficially to refer to something that was an ambition of Sheldon's - to transfer his consciousness and personality into a more durable and powerful container than his body and brain. He mentioned this often in the early seasons, currently not so much.

It would have made sense for the writers to jump on this "Sheldonist" trend and make it a major storyline. IMO the reason they haven't is Shamy. Not only has Amy crowded out the only female character with star quality, Penny, she's also reduced Sheldon to little more than a one half of a not-very-interesting relationship. IMO the problem is not that TBBT has become the Sheldon show, but that it's been replaced by the Shamy show, and the brilliant comic creation that was Sheldon has become just an ordinary guy who's unusually irritating.

Yes  A good post   And I can add another:  When Bernadette announced her pregnancy and they all went to karaoke, the last scene when P&L were talking about maybe having a baby one day.  That should have been a tender intimate moment for them but the camera switched to a drunk Sheldon with design on his face.  I thought this scene deserved a kiss as well.

First of all they should be in the background more than once awhile. They could have Lenny decorate Sheldon's room, go dancing, go to a football, spend a day in bed. Just because Shamy has a lot in common doesn't necessarily make them interesting to watch.

Also, maybe they can visit her parents in Nebraska, or have them attend Leonard's high school or college reunion, or have Penny win a sales award and give an acceptance speech. These storylines are certainly feasible.

If I'm not wrong Leonard will be 38 next season. They can do a 20 years high school reunion...
