TBH, and sorry if I rain in your parade, I had the vibe that when Amy said Sheldon loved her for her body because they had the same blood-type, it was a joke to be taken literally. When he looked at Raj raising his eyebrow in a malicious way for me he was just confirming that was exactly what he meant. Anyway, I liked the way he softened his voice when he spoke about Amy's mind and kindness....

I agree completely. Although, to be fair, they were discussing what attracted Sheldon to Amy (emphasis on the past), as in, what was the first thing that made him want to date her. I don't think that applies to the here and now, or that Sheldon loves her body now because of that. Indeed, Amy herself used the past tense: "He knew he could harvest a organ". In that sense, it's not as bad because, like I said, there's no way Sheldon was first attracted physically to Amy. And I don't think she was either (notice how he talks about his intelligence attracting Amy). But I still agree that the eyebrow raise wasn't meant to imply that Sheldon was attracted to her body in the conventional way, just confirming that Amy was right. 

Nonetheless, I'm still fed up with these jokes. Get over it, Jesus. Nobody is going to throw a fit and stop watching the show because Sheldon finds his girlfriend physically attractive.

Yes, of course, that doesn't apply now, the question was clearly about what prompted him to date Amy seven years ago. I agree these jokes are becoming stale, even if TBH we didn't get many of those this season, the roles have been pretty much reversed up to now, with Sheldon being intentionally seductive and Amy that doesn't get it or for one reason or the other doesn't want to be seduced, LOL! That's why I'm more forgiving about it now than I was last season, which was a festival of oblivious Sheldon when it comes to sexual innuendos...

Not really a fan of today episode, it was not a total train wreck because Howardette plot was hilarious, Simon and Melissa stole the episode, and the FwF part was cute (even if a bit repetitive, it felt like the Valentine episode last season...) but the A plot was not very funny. As for Shamy, like many of you, I hate when Amy treats Sheldon like a child, and that was exactly what happened in this episode, big time. Anyway, I must admit it looked like he was pretty fine with it. I think in a way Sheldon recognizes that Amy can help him in improving his social skills outside his group and to have a better understanding of human behaviors. On my part, though, I find way more interesting when both of them are being socially awkward and don't get human behavior, like when they took as a compliment the fact that their FwF show was too long, or when also Amy is shown to have problems to read the room, as when she realized that Rebecca was a gold digger and told Sheldon to come in saying "I was wrong", BTW, Mayim's physical comedy in that scene and in all the episode was really on fire.

The FwF part was funny, I love the fact FotM are the show's official band, even if Amy is starting to get jealous she can't play her harp too, maybe the duo can become a trio at some point, LOL! The idea of a retrospective on the show was interesting, with Sheldon interviewing Lenny, who obviously don't give a damn about flags, that was fun! Bert calling in to blab about his private life, instead, felt a bit off to me,  as I said it reminded a bit too much last year Valentine's day episode. 

TBH, and sorry if I rain in your parade, I had the vibe that when Amy said Sheldon loved her for her body because they had the same blood-type, it was a joke to be taken literally. When he looked at Raj raising his eyebrow in a malicious way for me he was just confirming that was exactly what he meant. Anyway, I liked the way he softened his voice when he spoke about Amy's mind and kindness....

So agree with you about everything about this episode! About the bold part, no chance of you rain in my parade, friend. I wanted Sheldon to elaborate more exactly because I saw it exactly you did.

And Sheldon's voice as he spoke to or about Amy is really great. For worst or for better, they are really in same page. What is most important to me. :)

Good morning everyone, I totally agree with you guys, this episode was stolen totally for the howardette plot, the Bert plot was boring and all the caracthers were so akward. In this season is the worse episode (imo).
 
About Shamy, the only part I liked was the fwf scene but turn so quickly to a repetitive plot with Bert calling as in the valentines episode. The rest of their interations were horrible, I totally hate when Amy trates him as a child, with the time-out, the raising your hand before speak ... Come on writters, seriously? I don´t know why the audience laughed with this scenes at all, and not only for shamy, with Lenny too, I´m so tired of that "jokes", they were (the both couples) together for a lot of years and they love each other, why is still funny that they trate bad or the begging leonard, or the non attrative Amy when we know is not like that anymore?

Sorry for not be more supportive today but I wasn´t expecting an episode like this at the last part of the season, with just three more episode to the end. Writters you can do it better, I didn´t laugh in the episode at all (a smile at first with the fwf scene).
I hope the next one is better and the two episodes for tapping will be amazing, I know they can do it! *cross fingers*

I forget about Sheldon saying "a lot of thing, her mind, her kindness ..." (that was cute, but I missed a smile in Amy, she was like knowing that the body thing was coming).

A part of me wonders if they wrote this one around the time they were clinching renewals and therefore that's why it was so awkward and pointless and disjointed. Not that we never had awkward and disjointed plots before, but never centered around a guest character and with such a pointless storyline.

The first 4:40 mins started great and If I hadn't known about spoilers I would think we were in for a great episode! Howardette/Stuart in the car with the impressions by Howard making me laugh and FWF always make me smile. That's all the good I can take from this one.

Was Sheldon pretty obnoxious in this one? With some of the dialogue I am leaning towards yes. Kind of a reminder that despite all the progress he has made this season he will revert back to old Sheldon in certain situations and that will never change. It is who he is, there is always a chance he will say something outrageous or hurtful, hopefully less the more he learns but to eradicate it completely just not possible.

But being told to leave the room and essentially sit on a naughty step with Frelling ridiculous and then later having to put his hand up was stupid. Amy is my favorite character on the entire show but I have to strongly criticize her for what she did in this one. Amy you need to remember Meemaw and what you told her when she told Sheldon to leave the room so the 'grown ups could talk'. You have said you are not his mother so actions like this go against that stance, it's the worst possible way of dealing with Sheldon when he is like this.

Don't know why this is but this is back to back seasons with episode 21 being one I really don't like. The Viewing Party Combustion is easily for me the worst episode in the last two years, this one isn't as bad as that but it's certainly in my opinion closer to that than the sheer brilliance of The Veracity Elasticity of this season or other great episodes over the years.

Hope I haven't been too critical, there are times when you sometimes hold back others you just want to tell it how it is or how you perceived it. I did not like this one as a Shamy, but judging from social media countless millions will have loved this one.

I‘am wondering when the two of them knew their blood type.

I kind of believe it happened during they communicated for 4 months after their first meeting.      the FWF plot brings me back to S9E15..

Yep Sheldon ran with the gag with the eyebrow acknowledgement. It would have been nice if Sheldon had reiterated the body line after Amy's gag but that was clearly a step too far for the writers. 'zOMG we can't have Sheldon flat out saying he likes her body!!!'.

For the record I think there is strong evidence he does, the way he looks at her and other examples. Just would be nice if he flat out told her or voiced it in front of others, maybe in Season 11 or 12? It would not be out of character now.

I think it's more one of  those pointless "filler" episode they write towards the end of the season because they don't want to show their hand for the season finale. Last season we got that awful GoT episode (10.21 was much better than 9.21, IMO) and in S. 8 we got the Communication Deterioration, which was totally unfunny to me...I kinda see a pattern here.

That sounds like the kind of ice-breaker question Sheldon or Amy would ask; some ask  "What sign are you?" when they meet somebody for the first time (especially during a date), I can totally see Sheldon or Amy leaning towards blood-types instead, LOL!

Hi there my Shamy friends! I wanted to weigh in a little about the parent-child thing. I wasn't sure where to post it but I believe it is fundamentally supportive so I decided to go for the shipping thread. @Tensor I hope you will find my decision acceptable.

First of all, I would like to say that after the first time they used that joke last night (when Shamy get back to the appartement) I had enough of it, it wasn't very funny after that. I laughed at that first time and I think it was also better because you could see Ay was embarrased by it, implying her behavior was not optimal. 

However, I do sometimes like childlike Sheldon. That brings me to my main point because I think my perception could be related to it. I do understand Amy getting to this place. There is sort of a sad truth behind it. Sheldon is hard to deal with and makes his friends and girlfriend want to control him at times because he fails to behave in a moe appropriate and more pleasant way. I have a grandfather who probably has an undiagnosed ASD (my sister having ASD could support this suggestion since there is a genetic factor to it). He is not as condescending as Sheldon and doesn't mock people and diminish them in front of their faces (although he is somewhat narcissistic/arrogant at times but that is not a feature of ASD, IMO it is more of a defense which is probably also the case with Sheldon). However, he can be hard to be with. He keeps telling his long stories and talking about mechanics and history at lenght. This is not an age thing, it is a symptom of ASD. It is like Sheldon and his interest in trains . He is also kind of out of touch with what's happening at times because he is busy with his stories. My grandmother treats him like a child a lot of the time. She is also tired of his stories. the Shamy sequence before going to the train museum reminded me of them so much, especially Amy in the bed part. I'm not saying this is good and I'm certianly not saying that my grandparents' relationship is good but I do understand her and I understand Amy too. Of course TBBT is a comedy so it is exaggereted but to me there is an understandable basis for it. I hope Shamy will learn how to handle those things better but it is a process, a lifetime process actually. So I don't see it as something that undermines their love somehow (neither do you guys, I believe) but something they need to learn how to handle, one of the challenges they have to face. Sometimes they face it better, sometimes they don't.

Thank you so much for sharing your shamy thoughts. They helped me to see some of the things that I liked less in episode by other light. All thoughts contributions about the episodes are imo helpful. Even when  users dont agree much with each others points they usual  help the others to understand sometimes some things harder to understand . That's why I love to share my thoughts here. They sometimes might be not much elaborate or deep as others but they are from my heart and I always love to learn more about the things I enjoy more or I know less.

Thank you for saying this. I agree a lot with you here.

I don't know when the writers started the "Amy treats Sheldon like a child" storyplot, and I don't understand why they think it's that funny they do it again and again.

IMO, and I know I'm in minority here, because I think Amy's intention was good, which was she wanted to help Sheldon understand social interactions better, but her method(as in treating him like a child) was wrong.

She shouldn't treat him like a child, give him time out, etc, etc. They should talk about this issue privately. And I don't think Amy herself is a expert about social interactions, so they should learn together.

------------------------------------------------------------

Sometimes, sadly, I really think Amy can't win. For example, after watching 1018, The Escape Hatch Identification, I've read reviews on social media like "When Raj was arguing with Sheldon, why didn't Amy help Sheldon? She is his girlfriend, right?" In that episode, Amy didn't treat him like a child, just suggested maybe they should eat alone. But to some people, the fact that Amy didn't help Sheldon was a huge mistake on her part. 

And I find it very ironically, in that episode, Sheldon didn't insult Raj that much, and he was the only one who gave Raj a present even, but the gang were all very mad at him; yet in this episode, Sheldon straightforwardly said Lenny should break up due to the fact that they didn't have anything in common, not to mention in front of Bert and his girlfriend, but everyone just sat there and said nothing...

-----------------------------------------------------------

All in all, I don't like this episode, but Fun with Flags was always nice, just too short this time, though.

I agree with previous comments. I am not sure where they were going with this episode. It was very much a reheated version of Raj and the Valentine episode. Nothing fresh. As much as I enjoy Burt being a guest sometimes, too much focus was given to his character. I would rather they had used the time for the main cast. The overall script was weak. That said I did enjoy Howardette and Stuart. They were fun to watch and the only good part of the episode...hoping for some rebound episodes. Quickly.

I think the crux of my issue with the child  treatment to Sheldon from Amy in plotlines  that involve the gang altogether or people strange to their usual circle of friends is  the non privacy thing. I mean we know Sheldon has some issues about reading emotions and behave in group as he might need often some support about it and Amy is indeed the best person in his life to help him, even the fact she sometimes doesnt do it in the best way because she herself has some social issues as well.  Although Amy's social issues are not so deep as Sheldon’s, Amy tries her best to do it well herself and to help her boyfriend, which is sweet and meanigful as they trust each other to help the other in any trouble they have. It is realy heartfelt to see Sheldon  is  so confortable to trust Amy when he overeacted about some social interaction even when her methods are not much ortodox. In conclusion I understand all shamy dynamic in moments like these as they are aganst the world as they complete each other and they are the best to read and help mutually. I only wished that the show doesnt cross the line child treatment in public as a method to avoid embarassement for both of them. However writers seem to enjoy it and many of live audience as well. I dont but I know it is for a good cause as Amy doesnt do it harmfully but with all her heart to help Sheldon in any situation. At least she called him back to 4 A last night as she was sure Rebecca was a digger. :)

Just catching up with everything here !! My sheep are lambing at the moment so it's constant right now !
Anyway - I enjoyed the episode much more than I thought I would.
FWF was fantastic !
I was ok to a point with Amy and her sending Sheldon out etc BUT I certainly wouldn't want that to become something we see often, I understand they are highlighting that Amy is getting him to understand etc - but I felt the slap on the back and put your hand up was a bit too far for my taste .
However the Mind, kindness & body ( & he totally meant Body !!!! ) stole the whole episode for me - totally adorable [emoji173]️[emoji7]
On a side note I loved Howardette & Stuart in this episode !

Exactly.  It's  the method that irks me. So much.  doing it in public and in front of others and using words like "time out " and "think of what u did" are cringe . It would be better if Amy said "Sheldon can I talk to you in the hallway for a min?" And then they can have a hilarious private conversation where she corrects him or something like a friend and partner. It would be just as funny , but probably the writers just don't wanna write extra dialogues.

 I think what Sheldon answered seemed truthful enough . He was attracted to Amy because of her mind in the beginning. He wasn't physically attracted to her when they first met. Did Amy say she was also physically attracted to Sheldon when he mentioned using his intelligence to attract her ? No. I think they both were referring to the past -when they first met and they simply  answered Raj's question .

Hello everyone! Late to the party cause I had a busy day but whatever...

My overall reaction to the episode was pretty similar to the rest of you - Howardette part was easily the best while the Bert thing was kinda weird to say the least. For Shamy specifically:

- I enjoyed their FwF stuff as always. Bert calling in to talk about his gf was reminiscent of last year's ep but I don't mind that gag. I love FotM being there again as the house band and Amy remarking she could've played that on her harp. lol

- The controversial mothering of Sheldon. Oh boy, where to begin? I'm so not a fan of this as well and some gags just went a bit far for my taste. But, putting lipstick on a pig here, what the writers maybe kinda sorta wanted to get at here is Amy continuing to help Sheldon navigate social situations. And it all came out a bit wrong in the process. Like, after greeting Rebecca and that unfortunate comment from Sheldon Amy clearly went outside with him to talk it out and try to make him understand why what he said was not okay. We know that Sheldon sometimes needs some time to figure these things out so I guess that's what she was trying with him here. But to him apparently it came across as being treated like a kid. And then it kinda spiralled out from there with Amy being caught between embarrassment and frustration causing her to react exasperated and making the wrong call. Together with @bfm's comment I can certainly see that very human side behind those jokes. It's a long process and Shamy certainly still need to work on their communication. Giving them the benefit of the doubt here Amy doesn't want to treat Sheldon like a child and Sheldon doesn't want to be treated like one. They just need to find a way to deal with that better.

- Sheldon swooning a bit over Amy's attractive qualities was super cute. I agree that is certainly refers to the early stage of their relationship. I can totally see them chatting about blood types and talking about organ transplants (I'd be lying if I'd say I didn't make the exact same joke once I found out I have the same blood type as my husband so I think that's spot on! LOL). But yeah I also get the frustration that it's again one of those bait and switch jokes which... ughhh

So all in all a mixed bag. Not exactly good but it certainly could have been worse.

I have no doubt he was truthful and the fact he said mind first is clearly obvious because we know as fans that is what first attracted him. It just would have been nice to see the body bit without no gag. I know he finds her physically attractive, seen enough with my own eyes that's the case just want to see him say it.

On a side note Raj is someone who has mocked their relationship at times, would have been nice and perhaps a way to curb his comments if after the gag Sheldon would have said something else about physical attraction not tied to the gag. Maybe he would have got the message?

As ever when I think the writers are being teases or holding back with a gag I imagine one of @wowbagger 's behind the scenes conversations in the writers room lol. 

Wouldn't say I am mad at the writers, just slightly disappointed as a shipper. Checking social media people loved Amy's joke.

Ok after a couple of views, as always I apologize if I repeat anything that has already been said.

Amy is always so delighted by the "house band's" musical intro.

The FWF flashback....Amy: " could have played that on my harp"

Sheldon basically doing taping an IG live with L/P in the 4A kitchen, so great to get Alex's IG post showing us how that was done.

The A/S stuff, when she scolded and/or kicked him out of the room, he was so willing to accept what was happening, like he wanted Amy to let him know when he had overstepped.  

"Don't you slam that door".."oh man"  that made me laugh.  And then she goes to fetch him.  I actually enjoyed all their exchanges, they seemed very in sync with each other in a very S/A way.

"Don't you slam that door".."oh man"  that made me laugh.  And then she goes to fetch him.  I actually enjoyed all their exchanges, they seemed very in sync with each other in a very S/A way.

This.

I actually quite enjoyed their interactions in last night's ep. Call me crazy but I see a bit of flirty tone. Amy's treating Sheldon like a child is quite different from Mary's. When it comes to Mary, Sheldon is quite resistant because he doesn't think Mary's right. He listens to her mostly because she's his mom and he has to. But when Amy calls him out or tells him to raise his hands, Sheldon doesn't resist or fight a lot, if not at all. I think maybe subconsciously, Sheldon knows when he's being inappropriate and maybe he himself even wants to stop. But he can't so he waits for Amy to "save" him out of a situation he's not good at. Besides Amy's not a dictator. She's quite reasonable. When she finds out that Bert's girlfriend actually is only into his money, she brings Sheldon back.

Let me put it this way, I think the whole "treating Sheldon like a child" thing is not ideal, but also not that bad because Sheldon is not forced into it. He's pleased to have Amy guide him through social conventions he's unfamiliar with.  There's an old saying in Chinese called "yi ge yuan da yi ge yuan ai", which means "Fair exchange is no robbery". Maybe Amy's method is wrong, but they are Shamy and they are weird. So what sometimes he's being treated like a child? As long as it works for both of them.

Amy says "go" he says "fine" and then leaves the apartment.  He could have easily balked at the scolding, plopped himself down in his spot and continued to be inappropriate. He heeds Amy's warning and steps outside 4A, willingly. I found that very interesting.

Sheldon is not Amy's dog.   Agree to disagree. I think they could have handled it better..

I prefer when they both learn from each other. So I do give writers credit for making Sheldon reading the room correctly. Sheldon was right about Rebecca - so maybe he is getting better at reading people and judging social situations. Amy was wrong about that and she admitted it.

I think Sheldon's dialogue responses kind of made the whole thing seem even worse.

I also think some of us may have to agree to disagree on this one, I don't see any situation where that type of behaviour is good for their relationship even if Sheldon is perhaps a willing participant behind the scenes or they have an arrangement. It's a slippery slope and I hope I don't see anything like that again.

Just as he did to Leonard and Penny.  

Most noticeably when his grandmother was visiting and he took instructions from L and P.

What Amy is doing is nothing new.
