3ku11 Posted September 4, 2016 Posted September 4, 2016 Stuff like Penny Leonard wore me down. Sheldon Bazinga to Amy. Eye rolling e.t.c. Are just long running gags. Like it was in Friends with Ross the Divorce Force. I mean all this how it makes the character look. Penny said this, so that means something. IT is just a little joke the TPTB put in, as their target audiene is casual fans. Who don't care that much about character integrity, or how it makes the show look Anymore then they do the person down the street. They are just tuning in for a laugh. All I am saying is I don't think the show need to be consistent in characterization all the time. I have just learnt to laugh it off, how many times have they thrown in stuff like this. And nothing changing by the end of the episode? As it is the show is less funny. Penny going Leonard wore me down, is just a long running gag. As is Leonard being degraded in his work. IT means nothing. Does not even bother me. Because I know it is constant, and I Cannot do anything about it. I would like Leonard to be praised, and get credit. But that is not the narrative they want to tell. They need to handicap Leonard, so the audience feel sorry for him. They know the more they do it, the more the audience well see through it. IT is like with Lenny's banter. Or Penny making comments, it is jsut normal banter, that has always existed between Lenny. I have neer thought for one second, Penny was being mean to Leonard, NEVER. Theirs aactually a ton more examples, of Penny being insecure, and a fear of loosing Leonard, then her being snarky towarsd Leonard. She has prooved tons of times she loves Leonard and no one else. It is like if I Watched another comedy, that I diddn't follow as much as BBT. And someone asid something not very positive, I Would laugh. BEcause my level of investment is not as deep. I think were so dedicated to our ships. And the integirty and consistency of the show. We lose sight of what the show actually is, a comedy. Ironically it has been a drama more then a comed. Point is hipeuflly S10 returns to being a comedy. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
