lol, I thought that it was probably right for the episode and what they were trying to get across to the audience in that moment. Not sure my ears could handle that noise on a regular basis though lol.

Spoiler Room: Scoop on Supergirl, Chicago P.D., Once Upon a Time and more

I love the flashback episode coming up on Big Bang Theory. Anything you can tease for the other characters? — Kylie
I can reveal that Laurie Metcalf will return as Sheldon’s mom in the winter premiere. “Sheldon and Amy go back to Texas to let Sheldon’s mom finally know that they’re living in sin together,” EP Steve Molaro says. So while they’re in Texas, and Howard and Bernadette are dealing with the baby, Penny and Leonard’s story is “ridiculously fun,” Molaro says. “Leonard and Penny are out having the best Christmas ever, until they decide to go to a farm and chop down their own tree. It just spirals down real fast.”

Me too! It was disturbing, but in a hilarious way! TBH I hope to hear her more often! She has the voice of an angel! :icon_cheesygrin:

Kudos to the actress who played Hallie´s voice! (She sounded very similar to Debbie Wolowitz and I already love her  for doing that!)

She is Bobby Hill (from King of the Hill).

What's the point in one couple having a baby that we never get to see?

What's the point of having a baby that sounds like a 50 year old chain smoker?

Why does it always have to spiral downhill for Lenny?

Well it's hard to comment too much until the episode airs. I guess I should be happy he still remembers there still on the show.

TR are vague. I think it's best to hold judgement till it airs. I agree Sheldon is part of the big three. That's the dynamic. Like it or not. It well always be like that. How many times has this happened. And it translates differently on tv? And I laughed at Leonard struggling to breathe? Hardly making light of Heath lol. Just a gag. That you would expect Leonard to be breathless with Penny. I don't usually Read TR.

But regarding last one. Seems pretty typical Lenny. Seems no different to any other time part ten seasons. They overrreact to things, make up. I mean this TR is no where near as bad as season 7. Remember when Penny was revealed to be married lol? That worked out in the end too. Every now and then, the show throw a spanner in the works.

But it's never permanent. This time around, it's actually a good development. Typical Lenny fight. Find peace. And it's no shock that Leonard has gotten complacent in their relationship. So it's a little nudge all it is. I'm sure the RA we'll translate in a way make sense. If this leads to Leonard planning a romantic dinner for Penny. Well then all that stress would be all for nothing won't it Haha.

Because that's Lenny. Always been like that. Moloro says it's fun. Well then I trust his words. I really do. I don't have any reason not to. Do ppl find Lenny unrealistically content and happy all the time. Even to the point of come on, you gotta be mad about that! Relatable or funny. I like they can be sweet, then nasty, then sweet again. It's realistic, which is the whole point of them. I'm really looking forward to what looks like two centric Lenny episodes over the break.

Well I typically think Molaro is full of..... But that's just me. Really don't care what he says. Their relationship ups and downs don't bother me much. I said this on the episode thread is what bothers me more is when Stuart is getting more screen time than them. Combined with the painful long Shamy bedroom scene. The only thing that humored me was when a couple people on the Lenny thread had pictures of Lenny making out on the couch. Note to Shamy observe their kissing technique. Kissing like a wet fish is just bad tv. As to the the Lenny centric episodes coming up that would mean they would get more screen time than the other couples. I'm not betting on that.

Apparently, we nailed it, we'll never see Halley on screen...

http://tvline.com/2016/12/15/the-big-bang-theory-recap-halley-born-howard-bernadette-daughter/

I bet that we will see her on screen. It's very sweet that they honored Carol Ann's character in the way that they did, but these comments may be coming out of an emotional place as opposed to a story telling place.

I think that the urge to place the characters in situations where the interact with the baby will be so irresistible to the writers and at some point they will cave.  (Especially if this ends up being the final season of TBBT)

It's been so long since the last time i've posted something on this forum but here i go. I must say i was hoping that shamy and the show in general was getting better this season but i was soooo wrong!! in fact i had not even watched the show until now that encourage myself to do it, and i regret it so badly.. 

First off.. (and thanks Crismo for point this out) Why the Shamy kisses are still so forced and something that is really painful to watch? i don't know if this has to do with some "acting skills" (even though Jim and Mayim are an amazing wonderful actors), maybe they're terrible kissers which it's very doubtful when you see the kiss between Mayim and Johnny on Connan or the Shenny kiss between Jim and Kaley in fact, that kiss was way more passionate, realistic and believable that all the shamy kisses and yes that includes the reconciliation and not to mention the coitus 1 and 2, i know, that was just a nightmare, that wasn't sheldon, etc etc. (Trust me as a former shamy shipper it's very difficult write this because that kiss was the main reason i could't see shamy the same way but whatever!). 

My point is that sheldon looks so unconfortable like is about to vomit right after the minute they finish the kiss! no to mention amy dear lord girl move those tiny lips!! i'm not talking about a "porn-kiss" or something like that, it doesn't need to be gross in order to be romantic or at least believable, i know this is a sitcom,  i know shamy are awkward and special but at this point of their relationship and knowing that they make out more often, excuses like their lack of experience, Sheldon's phobia to germs or fear to touch are out of place.. so i think there is no justification to see that "kissing technique".. IMO

or maybe this has to do with some "directing issues", maybe it's "Mr. Pregnancies" a.k.a Molaro's fault, since he is the snake in shamy's garden probably he choses the worst take to put it in the final edition, maybe that's why they took so long shooting those scenes, i mean, he needs to be sure that "sheldon is still sheldon" right?...

Second, Lenny marriage really? it has just turned into a insulting joke to all their fans, is that the best Molaro and the writters got to them??.. what a shame and waste of time.. lennies even shamies deserve better than this.

well, just my unpopular opinion don't hate me please..

Sorry, I suffer from asthma and none of those things help. It is a Chronic disease that has to be managed by medicines to prevent serious consequences. Leonerd will be taking a dose of a preventer inhaler every day to ease inflammation of the airways, the inhaler he uses with Penny will be a reliever and it's a good idea to use it before any physical exercise, having a full on asthma attack during sex would be even more of a turn off.

The writers often do cock things up, but on this one it mirrors my own situation too closely for comfort, in fact if my wife throws me my salbutamol inhaler I know it's my lucky night.

As an asthma sufferer myself, I have a rescue inhaler, a maintenance inhaler, and a nebulizer machine.   It is definitely life threatening, and when Leonard said he really wanted to go to the hospital, I knew it was meant to be a joke, but it's not.   Someone who does not suffer can never truly understand how it feels to have air all around you and not be able to take it in.

Anyway, I noticed that Leonard's back up inhaler was actually his maintenance inhaler, or Symbicort to be more precise.  You can tell by the color and the meter on the top.  A casual viewer may not catch it, but I certainly did.   Anyway, it's not meant for rescue, but I guess were supposed to believe that is what it is because it's stupid for Leonard to have just recovered from an attack to have sex and risk another without something like albuterol to help him recover.    We know he used to keep them in Penny's bedside table.

I just can't believe he doesn't carry a rescue inhaler with him in his jacket pocket, have them all over the apartment, and in his car.    The writer's made him look irresponsible for someone with his condition, but as a viewer knowing it wasn't real, it did make me laugh.   I'm also happy he wants Penny so badly, and that Penny wants her little weasing man in return.     They really are adorable together.

This is why I'm a little baffled by the latest TR.   To me, I thought they have been doing very well and am curious as to exactly what tone leads to the Sheldon drafted RA according to Lenny's guidelines of what they want in it.    I'm not going to judge until I see the episode because @shamyyellow has assured us it is all good, and I trust in that.

Don't sorry. I was apprently wrong about my opinion. I need to apologize. But I wasn't to suppose to say he can heal by it, though I have heard from some people who had some asthma they actually grew over it. A human body still has many mystifications and secrets. There will be some degrees in the disease, I think. But can you tell, is there other than medication, anything you can't do to influence the symptoms? So, not healing, but maybe that the symptoms can be better under control?

While it is true some people can grow out of it, especially if the leading cause is obesity and they lose weight or have a food allergy trigger that can be eliminated, there are others who have environmental allergies, sensitivity to cold, stress, etc. that is not so easy to avoid.  Also as @Zhalen565 pointed out, chronic hereditary inflammation must be controlled by preventative medications.   It is worse for those whohave had a tonsillectomy.   

Diet and exercise can help to strengthen the lungs and reduce the number of attacks, but they can come without warning.   I can walk into a house with a cat and not see it to know it's there because my lungs become inflamed and slam shut.   No amount of diet or exercise is going to make that any better.   I can ride my bicycle for miles on a nice day, but if it is cold outside, I'm lucky just to get it out of the garage before needing a breathing treatment.

All I can say is that perhaps Leonard's asthma is activity induced, which is a mild form.   He needs medicine, but he can also recover if he gives himself time to rest when an attack comes on.    As far as him growing out of it, if he exercised more and strengthened his lungs, it's possible.  However, I just don't see him heading to the gym or taking a jog on a regular basis to make that happen.

Each asthma sufferer is different as far as what works for them and what doesn't, and while there are those who eventually overcome it, there are many more who don't, and others who unfortunately lose their fight entirely.

So, while the TPTB enjoy making comedy out of Leonard's use of his inhalers, I can see how it could be a sensitive subject for some.   Regardless, I love seeing Penny comfort Leonard when he is suffering.

For any other couple, I would agree.   For Shamy, I do not.   Neither one of them have any experience kissing anyone else.   They are still trying to figure it all out.   Perhaps they like to do some surface lip exploration before diving in for the good stuff.   

Mayim said in an interview at Comic Con, I think, that she and Jim both know how to kiss properly.   Sheldon and Amy do not, and what they try to portray on screen is the inexperience and awkwardness that define Shamy.    Whether we agree or not, it if works for them, who at we to judge?   They have no basis for comparison to know if they are doing it right or wrong.   They only know that what they are doing feels good and is right for them.    Case in point:  Hours vs. Minutes.   Amy has no complaints, and it seems Sheldon doesn't either.

You know the strange thing is, their kisses used to be not that awkward. Their first kiss, the train kiss, the couch kiss. Those are fine kisses. Ever since the writers decided to let coitus happen, things started to change. It's like in order to make up for the fact that they're no longer "weird" now that they're having sex like normal people (well, not exactly like normal people), something else has to be wrong lol.

I thought the first kiss and train kiss were extremely awkward because Amy stood stiff as a board.   The couch kiss was more lively with Amy brushing Sheldon's shoulder and Sheldon's hand on her thigh and back.   Even during the Empathy episode when they reunited, we were to assume there was tongue movement, as they just clung to each other for minutes.   They have always squished their faces and mouths tightly together, or just gone for the quick peck.   It's what they do.   This is their version of passionate, and I am fine with it because their facial expressions, hands, and body language tell us what is going on.   In my book, it is hot because it is them!

agree... the train kiss was very special probably the only one that i really liked.. but the last ones.. jesus! just no! they are not even realistic at all, they're forced, fake and again really painful to watch, i know that  a lot of people disagree with me and enjoy those scenes and it's great!! but i don't...

Sheldon clearly is still struggling with intimacy like molaro said, we see again that he just does it because you know it's an annual event, they have a contract and he needs to respect that agreement, sheldon had sex with amy not because he wants to do it but because he HAS to!! we see again a horny amy and I haaate that!! I loved the gift he gave her (not the coitus obviously) and i'd rather see that kind of "intimate moments" between them than them kissing again.. sorry...
