Tbf Penny's always been like that once her dreams of stardom crashed down. She's struggled to embrace her reality out of fear. Most of the VD for Lenny have stemmed from that. That's the thing when you write a couple realistically. A lot of it won't be pretty. But the important stuff still matters. They still love each other. They are both clearly worn out by life. I don't know Penny or Leonard have had a trip away from Pasadena. Other then their ill fated Vegas Wedding. When are they going to go on their well deserved Honeymoon? As for their VDS specifically. 

Season 3: Large Hadron Collider. She was thrilled to spend VD with Leonard. Until Sheldon and Sickness got in the way

Season 6: She diddnt enjoy most of it. Due to her own stupid insecurities. And acted atrociously. They had a great moment. Because they allowed them to communicate. Without anyone's interruption. Without a RA! Wow how did these two function in a relationship before the RA. They must have. been absolutely clueless. 

Season 7: Penny bought Leonard Chocolate. Leonard lakers tickets. They had some sweet kisses. But spent most of it at the Vet with Rajs stupid dog lol. 

9.15: Was pretty realistic to me. Both were realising how many years has gone by. And facing their mortality rate. It was beleiveable to me. I think Penny still lacks the maturity one needs. She still clamours for her old life. Which I get. But I think she's gonna have to find fulfilment in something that's not just Leonard. Or being a Pharmaceutical rep. As you think about it everyone else is fulfilled in their careers. Penny is not. But I don't think it's always Leonard tries, Penny never does. I mean Leonard Doesent try anymore too. So it's a two way street. I can understand Penny's pov in the next episode. She just wants Leonard to wear pants lol.

I agree with you that she doesn't hate it, but I also think she has not enjoyed the majority of the Valentine's Days they've shown. 

And that's because the writers don't go for the all happy, smooth sailing plots because there's absolutely no fun in that. They prefer when things go horribly wrong. Leonard and Penny were always in good spirits on Valentine's Day, but it never really worked out. And, as you might have noticed, the same thing applies to the other couples.

Do I like tbbt as a comedy nowadays? Not as much I did in the first three seasons, because back than it was very refreshing and new to me. I admit, it is mostly based on sentiments and subjective motives rather on logic or scientific approved methods. I am a nostalgic guy and think most things of my youth-adolescence is the best there was (t.v., movies, music, sport etc). Are there any really good norms and values to describe comedy anyway? 

Anyhow I do enjoy the current season, more than 8 and 9. What I like, and I can´t repeat it enough is the imho really outstanding acting of Johnny, Kaley and Mayim. I love their timing and delivering of their punchlines, their facial expressions and physical acting. I find Howardette sweet. Stuart I got mixed feelings. And Raj has lost it for me, due to the bad writing of his storylines. Jim, is for me the most dissapointing. And not because I am irritated by his ongoing presence to Lenny, that is the writers to be blamed for. But I really appreciated his acting. And his awards all are well deserved, but this season he is (very close) to overacting. Where he was brilliant in his quircks. Now he is really exaggerating in his way of acting. For instance how he kicked the rock and injured him self. I have seen school plays, where kids did act this better. 

So to me this season has many highs and lows, but the amplitude is way larger and bigger than in the first 3-4 seasons. So it´s kinda expressing my mixed feelings and the lack of balance in the storys. But I guess the writers have a very difficult context to write for. Not knowing they are writing for the big and grand Finale or another one or two seasons. 

Seasons 1-4 were fantastic and out of this world.  We all need to remember that those (especially 1-3) are what sold The Big Bang Theory to TBS and wide syndication.  Presently TPTB are playing to the largest segment of the audience:  the casual viewer.  Not Lenny fans, not shippers of Shamy, of Howardette, even Shenny.  My boss came into my office recently, knowing I'm a huge TBBT fan (by my calendars, my bobble head dolls, etc....) and asked me if I saw the episode where "the tall skinny guy goes to live with the brown haired girl"?  That is for whom the series is being produced.  (again and as always, jmo, and from experience...)

I know it's not up to us, it's up to the writers.  But, just because the writers put it in there, there is no requirement to like it.  I don't care how it comes across in the actual episode, for me, it's OOC for both of them.  All they've done, for years, was to belittle any kind of agreement like this.  

Leonard and Penny have talked through their problems since season five.  It may have taken some time, but they get to it.  That is the Leonard and Penny I love, and feel is what they deserve. 

Oh man your preaching to the converted Haha. I think the RA is absurd too. Thing with the show these days it's so inconsistent. Like the episode Penny storages Leonard's stuff. We didn't know we would get that last sweet scene. So I'm just saying. Let's see what the taping gives us to out.

But doesn't sitting around without pants make him sorta like a Boy Scout... always prepared. :icon_redface: That way it saves Penny's limbic system time.

Well Leonard's like 38 ain't he lol. Why is even playing video games. I mean yeah he can. But he looks like an unemployed bum in that the photo :sarcastichand:

Well, now it all makes sense.  Penny is Jealous of Sheldon and Amy's relationship.  So, to get a relationship like theirs, get an RA and they won't have to be jealous of Amy and Sheldon.  Well, now that it is explained... I still don't like it.  Love the explanations CBS puts out for the show.
