[Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10


Tensor

Recommended Posts

I admit, though, that this warp -speed movement does give me a little pause. Is the show wrapping up all the loose ends it can before it rings down the curtain? I mean, these guys are spending their storytelling coin like they know they've only got a week left to live. I suppose they've got proposals and weddings and so forth on the Shamy side as far as milestones go, and there is always coitus. But at this rate the Shamy will have at each other in the next episode. In a library. While arguing in a furious undertone over whether Richard Feynman or Oliver Sacks is a better science populariser.

For the rest? Maybe we get to see Lenny settle down? Finally? And then there is Howardette Minor and the pressing issue of Ugh, Raj's love-life? But this all seems like pretty...final...stuff.

Maybe I'm wrong, though. Maybe, rather than Act Three Resolution, what this REALLY is, is Act Two Manoeuvreing. Maybe -at least as far as the Shamy is concerned - this is a frantic correction of Season Nine's errors of omission.

in other words: Brace yourselves for Writers' Room Fanfic: Contract Renegotiation Edition! Guest starring Emmy Winner Jim Parsons!

JP: Hello, Chuck. Thank you for agreeing to meet with me.

CL: Jim, what's this about? You know we can't have one-on-one meetings without the others.

JP: I know, I know, and I'm sorry. But I had an idea I wanted to run past you.

CL: An idea?

JP: Yes. You know my salary's pretty high.

CL: We really shouldn't be discussing this especially without Johnny and Kaley...

JP: Oh, I'm not asking for MORE.

CL: ....are Johnny and Kaley okay with this?

JP: No. No. It's just me. I was just thinking, you know, my salary's so high, and I really want to help out with the show's extended run, and so...what do you say to a discount?

CL: A discount?

JP: Yes!

CL:.......what's the catch?

JP: No catch! I'm offended you'd ask!

CL: What do you WANT, Jim?

JP: Well, there ARE a FEW things...

CL: Here we go.

JP: So you know I've wanted bed scenes for the Shamy for a while now?

CL: Listen, Jim. Sheldon is a beautiful, aloof Olympian untouched by the common ruck of human lusting! Didn't you watch the BBC Sherlock video I gave you?

JP: I did. Benevolent Cummerbund is very attractive, Chuck, I get it. But you know I've been working out?

CL: Yes, I have noticed, Jim. And so have the costume department. They don't make Flash T-Shirts in a chest size 44, Jim!

JP (waves hand): Eh, use the money you've saved off my salary. Daddy's brought his guns and he's ready to FIRE!

CL:.......what will you take to never say those words in that order ever again?

JP: Funny you should ask. You seem like you might be interested in my SPECIAL plan.

CL: Special?

JP: The Shamy Playfulness, Eccentricity, Coitus and Intimacy ALlowed Plan. SPECIAL for short. Catchy, no?

CL: But what does it MEAN?

JP: You get $10,000 off my per-episode salary for every time I get to smile playfully at Amy. $50,000 for every time she gets to be weird and pedantic with me. $100,000 off if I get to be turned on by it. $200,000 off if I get to SAY I am turned on by it. $500,000 for a kiss. $750,000 for a bed scene.

CL (curious): And for a science argument in bed ending with a make out?

JP: Turn to page 23.

CL (turns, reads): I just give you your bus fare?!?

JP: I want to make this work, Chuck!

CL: Is Mayim okay with this?

JP: ...is Mayim okay with being sassy and eccentric and saying smart things instead of perfecting her 'exasperated' face?

CL: It's a GOOD face.

JP: She's okay with it, Chuck.

CL: But the bed scenes?

JP (sighing): I'm working on it. Just...just write me some fully clothed flirtation while I talk to her. Oh, I'm expensing the tequila. I'll need lots of it.

CL: Jim!

JP: Take it off my paycheck!

CL:...well, okay.

JP: Pleasure doin' business with you, Chuck.

[End Scene].

by the way, if someone could find me that photo of JP on a suit sprawling in a chair looking like a James Bond villain to insert here, I'd be much obliged. Thanks in advance!

ETA: hat-tip, as ever, to nick and koops for the speculation about Captain Jim's role in all this.

You already know that I love your thoughts about  the show but this post was a winner of winners,lol!

If I could I gave 10 likes just by myself, I surely would!! Brilliant! :icon_cheesygrin:

Thanks for all the spoilers!

I'm happy and cautiously confused.    I love the LA being fixed finally.   I love Shamy in 4B.  

Seeing how the apartment had been rearranged for the brunch just seemed so permanent to me. Amy coming home and Sheldon in the kitchen just looked right!

Lenny redecorating their room.  I expected Penny would.  I missed seeing Lenny in her colorful bed.

Sheldon formally changes addresses and doesn't have to pay 4A rent anymore?  I hope he thought to give Lenny back pay for holding his new apartment for him since the day Lenny got married, at the very least. 

Love Shamy both working in the sciences together. 

Amy, lying again?  At least she is staying true to character,  and now we know that apparently Sheldon is not so difficult to live with anymore. 

Sheldon blantantly wanting to make a baby the way humans do. Heck yeah!  If he hadn't been making remarks in S8, I would think wanting a baby after only a few weeks of living together and no coitus would be overkill.  However, it fits because we know where his mind has been for two years now.

Amy not thinking she needed to worry about contraception.   I get it, but what happened to the woman who is always prepared?

Sheldon becoming a sappy romantic flaunting his stuff trying to seduce Amy to sleep with him?   I'm not sure.  While comedic, until I see the episode,  I'm a little overcome by some ick factor on this one.  Never really seen a horny Sheldon before.  Perhaps it will look better on screen than it sounds on paper.

Amy turning him down,  I never would have imagined.   My how the tables have turned. 

I agree with some that the show has definately taken a turn in focus and direction.   It really does feel like this is an experiment for a Shamy spin-off.

All this and no engagement yet?  Is this a Lenny redo?

I'm going to have to rethink all my fanfic because none of this is as I expected.  

Nonetheless,  I want to tell TPTB to keep bringing it.

Thanks to the wonderful people who sought to end the spoiler-free torture!   It is good to see the forum alive again with new things to discuss.

Aren't people always complaining why Sheldon has to be the one who's at fault? Well, there you go, wishes come true. This time it's Amy who does something stupid. She apologizes and Sheldon forgives her. 

I never consider Amy lying about her apartment a big deal anyway. It's harmless and it actually shows how much Amy enjoys staying with Sheldon. Would people still be mad if the position reversed that Sheldon's one who's been lying? Don't think so. Besides, Sheldon doesn't seem to be bothered by it, so why should I be.

Now regarding to 1007 and 1008. All I want to say besides OMG is, coitus 2.0 is definitely coming!!! The writers are doing everything they can to tease us.

Do we actually get to see the sex dungeon dream? :shy:

@shamydawson

It's a sitcom, I am not sure they can show Leonard in some leather mask getting whipped by Penny in their newly created sex dungeon lol whilst Penny wears something like what Diana Rigg wore that time in The Avengers.

Shamy having coitus? Or the storyline in general?

Both honestly since the Lenny scenes while they sound good will probably take all of a minute maybe a minute and a half total

If the living arrangements are permanent it seems obvious the show is wrapping up this season.

Shamy doing science together. IMO there's no science involved. Just a set up for a gag.

Amy tricking Sheldon. That's original.

People on this site is way down. just mostly Shamy fans left.

I know, that's not what I meant. They could just show the room with them making out in bed.

I know, I was just being a little bit sarcastic. :)

Maybe the dream of a sex dungeon says more about Sheldon's mind and his sex on the brain intoxication he is undergoing right now more than anything?

More likely to be a storage room than a sex dungeon you would think lol

To be honest, an entire room as a sex dungeon for Leonard and Penny doesn't sound that far fetched. :icon_cheesygrin:

Well...Rememeber "The Holographic Excitation" and the TARDIS. Leonard and Penny are no strangers to the use of special utensils to spice up their love life. :icon_cheesygrin:

Another report that means I don't have to go out of my way to see an episode. About a minute of my favourites and a shed load of the GTB. Way to go writers to lose a chunk of certain viewers but at least you're keeping one group happy.

I'd pay a lot of money to see Sheldon's version of a sex dungeon ;)
