Yes, they are all great! No doubt about it. 😃

I especially love Kaley/Penny. She's the queen of facial expressions. 😄

 

Yeah! And here comes my ABSOLUTELY favourite again! :icon_cheesygrin:

The whole sequence of Penny's interview was an outstanding highlight from the complete Season 8 for me.

Sorry, but if that is true, then they are wasting Kaley and Johnny's talents for the sake of the glorious Shamy. Kaley is 10 times the comedy actress than Mayim. Mayim is a wonderful straight actress that needs to feed off of other actors,

Kaley - compare to Abbott & Costello (as you pointed out), Lucille Ball, Mr. Bean or Jim Carrey - eye rolling, pucker pouting, arm crossing, foot stomping, physical/slapstick comedy, very well suited to Kaley's outgoing physicality and especially to her Series 9-10 depiction of the classic sitcom shrew-wife. Katey Sagal was entirely believable as her Mum - she bosses Wyatt and one of her go-to gestures is the very same trout mouth pout! 😁

Mayim - compare to Buster Keaton, Steven Wright, Craig Ferguson or Stephen Fry - understated, dead pan delivery, wry/dry wit, unassuming appearance, humour often derived from self-deprecation or sardonic word play.  This contained comedic style makes her rare explosions all the funnier. Teller was the perfect choice to play her Dad; though wordless, like Mayim, his comedy is subtle, compact and economical.

Each school of comedy has its practitioners and proponents. It is simply a question of personal taste, not superiority.

You totally missed my point and I refuse to explain it again!😫

I'm sorry. What part of "Kaley is 10 times the comedy actress than Mayim. Mayim is a wonderful straight actress that needs to feed off of other actors," did I misunderstand?

For casual, I switched to suspenders.   Happy belated birthday Carlos.    You ready for the Florida fun season?  

Thank you, Rick.  AS to your question: indeed I am ! :icon_cheesygrin:

She makes looking uncomfortable very easy. A wonderful actress.

After watching this episode for the first time, I set my media player to continuous repetition at this sequence and was literally laughing on the floor. :icon_cheesygrin:

She's a marvelous actress and she nailed that scene. Too bad we don't get to see more of this, but alas the writers/TPTB have tunnel vision on Sheldon/Shamy
