That's one of the things I liked about her.

I loved her acerbic remarks:-

Howard: Um, tell us about your work, Amy.

Amy: I doubt you’d understand. Sheldon tells me you only have a master’s degree.

:laugh:

When did I say that?

I never said you said That. I said I share the opinion Amy makes Sheldon worser. I never said you or anyone else shares that opinion.

Thats the thing about Amy's remarks back then. Not to mention her sexual innuendos towards Penny. You personally might of found it funny. But ALOT of ppl found her obnoxious.

I disagree. I'm completely happy with their portrayal in the last few years, with one or two exceptions.

Add my name to the list of those who have been, with a few exceptions, sorely disappointed with the way Lenny have been written and minimized for the past three seasons.

The two highest rated seasons are season three, and season six, both heavily Lenny.

Six is my favorite and I am not at all a fan of Lenny. I loved the Cooper/Kripke Inversion, the Bakersfield Expedition, The Contractual Obligation Implementation, The Parking Lot Escalation...tons of things happened that made them more group eps. That is the season where Shamy really took off as well. I saw The Closure Alternative as advancing Shamy as well as The Fish Guts Implementation and the Spoiler Alert Segmentation.

The point I was trying to make is that I see no reason to link MR and MB's renewals. Irrespective of Bernadette's and Amy's popularities with the audience, their position in the structure of the show is very different. Bernadette is deeply embedded; Howard couldn't reasonably exist as a character without her now, and she provides the only justification, such as it is, for Raj and Stuart still being in the show. Cutting her out would be like a major amputation.

I must have missed something.  How is Bernadette integral to keeping Raj and Stuart on the show?

The theme of Howard as single parent, just as his mother was, isn't implausible.  

I don't want them to get rid of either character, and don't see how you so strongly favor one over the other.

I'm not entirely sure what you want to see because Lenny isn't all that much different than in season six for example, just in a whole different stage of their lives, but at the same time, season six is highly praised for some reason. There were fights, there was lying, they were on the verge of breaking up at some point and Sheldon got between them all the time. All the things you complain about were present before, so why you'd suddenly refer to the last three years of Lenny as their downfall (while all they did was progress) is beyond me.

Apart from the Lenny fan part, I totally agree with you.

Season 6 is my favorite, too. I can honestly say I almost LOVE every episode of Season 6.

From the start, we got to see Howard "actually" being in space, not some side description. We got Halloween episode, Christmas episode, Valentines Day episode,  IMO, this season was the most balanced between friendship plots and relationship plots of all the seasons. And 619, The Closet Reconfiguration was just perfect. I remember at that time, I've read tons of reviews about the letter on social media, people were guessing which version was true and even the casual audiences thought this was a very good episode. And in the end, we got to see Leonard going his North Sea trip. So, not only the friendship and relationship parts were good, but the profession part was great, too.

Even the new character- Alex was my favorite recurring character, no doubt. 

Sorry for my gushing over Season 6. :icon_cheesygrin:

I probably wouldn't be here now if they hadn't of added the Amy and Bernadette characters, i'm a true believer that the show would have ended years ago with the original format. I watched the occasional early season episodes when they were aired but it wasn't until last year that I found this forum and watched every episode from start to the present. Doubtful I would be posting on this forum if the show had ended years ago.

I think they all make the show what it is and any loss of characters or the actors who play them would damage the show irrevocably. Again I am hopeful everyone will be back I just want to see it confirmed or set in stone, as it stands right now it's not.

I agree with you. I came into the show in the summer before season 5 started and watched the first 4. I really got into it and loved it starting season 4, those early seasons were fun but the show finally found itself in season 4 when bernadette and amy came. I find the older format very boring now. The show would of not lasted that long with that format. 

Season 4 is my favorite season followed by 5 and 6. Season 4 to 6 is my favorite era of the show, when it was at its best.

I don't know why Bernadette and Amy are treated as a package. They didn't come in together and have no special connection.

I don't see how it would be possible to write out Bernadette without without also losing Howard. In fact Old Howard was pretty well done when they brought in Bernadette to save the character, who has been great ever since.

Amy, on the other hand, could easily and cleanly (and IMO advantageously) be written out. Have Sheldon rediscover his emotional self-sufficiency and that his friends are all he needs. No-one else would miss her. Maybe bring back Emily, not necessarilly as Raj's gf but as another friend for Penny and Bernadette. Or have Raj join their girls' nights as an honorary girl.

I would assume the only reason is that their contracts are on the same renewal cycle.

Yes that's right. Both became regulars in season 4, only Bernadette was made one 4 episodes before Amy. Although Bernadette has been on longer than Amy coming in early season 3 verses Amy end of season 3. But yeah your right their contracts are on the same cycle.

The original format wouldn't of lasted ten seasons. Saying that Season 4 wasn't the best IMO. While Lenny needed to break up butch Amy and feminine Sheldon didn't work for me. Season 5 was a little better. Lenny was back together, Howdette wedding planning was going on, and Shamy were starting to look like a couple. Season 6 was probably the best of all seasons. Something for everyone. After that the show quality has started to diminish to what we have now.

As to the Amy and Bernadette need. I think Bernadette you probably  need for the storyline. Though you could work around it. Amy you do not need. I'm not sure a Shamy engagement or wedding is really necessary. Wasn't the biggest thing people needed to see was Shamy coitus?

As stated many times on this forum. The Bernadette and espicially Amy addition was for female viewership. It turned the show into a romance/comedy show. What would have more interesting to me if TPTB back at the beginning of season 4 had the guts to make Sheldon a gay character. Would the ratings been as high? The show ratings itself went up when season 1-4 repeats went on TBS. I don't think the immediate appearance of Bernadette and Amy caused a ratings increase.

And it is beyond me how you can say that seasons 7-10 have been essentially the same when they do not even resemble S6. S6 was special, magical and Lenny were adorable. They didn't fight as much and it was them against the world. Also, when in the last 4 seasons have you seen Penny be as loving towards Leonard as in The Holographic Excitation? Do you remember also that during season 6 Penny said "I love you" to Leonard for the first time? Was there anything as special in the seasons that followed? I don't think so. So how you see S7-10 as similar to S6 is beyond me.

Not to mention that that was the season that Howard was dungeon master and did all these imitations that were soooo funny and spot on. For me S6 was the best season of the whole show run.

And he's still clueless about the accurate meaning behind what people say.

Sheldon hasn't been clueless since season 6, episode 8.  Anyone that can refer to oral sex, as a chicken pecking for corn, while making accurate movement of their head to mimic the action of oral sex, is not clueless.

Obnoxious can be funny.

Basil Fawlty could be obnoxious, but he was considered by many to be very funny.

David Brent could be obnoxious, but he was considered by many to be very funny.
