I know a lot of people here know of my medical problems.   For those who don't, I have trouble, at times, walking any kind of distance, say a block or two, without the aid of a cane.  Around the house

Hello guys,   I am so sorry, I promised a taping report but it was a crazy week and I didn't have time to write one. Here is what happened(I don't know if you already get any other repo

Hey guys! I’m sure somebody will give you a full TR so just wanted to share my overall impressions and BTS I thought the episode was just perfect and for those of you who don’t like Shamy - I fel

(Well, I respect every opinion, even if it is based on alternative aspects. Aren't we all dreamers looking for the best entertainment in the TBBT cosmos? Doesn't it bother us that expected/dreamed scenarios don't arrive? Isn't that why we're here to share and discuss our voice with others?)
Just a thought, my thought, of course.

Well said and I don’t mind alt shippers either. I try to respect shippers, non-shippers and alt-shippers alike. If someone likes the idea of shamy, shenny, Shelnard or even no-romance-at-all , chances are they feel it intrinsically and it would be hard to convince them that their feelings are “wrong”. At the end of the day , it is fiction and entertainment. Viewers will have their opinions based on what they liked, what they disliked and what they thought, could have been   :girlwink:

Yes, that was my first thought, too. With Raj's dad supposedly appearing, maybe the writers are going to pull a fast one and have Raj and Ruchi elope on a whim. Then, they could always play that will-they-or-won't-they-stay-together story.

He was exhausted by the stress of simply trying to pick the perfect date, overthinking things as usual.  Amy gets Sheldon. Yes, she has childhood wedding dreams, but I don't think that she will discredit Sheldon's personality in the process.  I think that she will simply try to make it less stressful for him.  I really don't see a bridezilla Amy in the future.

Really? I could totally see a bridezilla Amy. To me, based on canon it would fit her character.

That is true, Raj has always screwed up relationships so maybe if the got married there would be more incentive for him to make it work.

I don't think incentive is the problem. Often the harder he tries the worse he gets.

The way they've written Ruchi thus far makes me think that her marrying Raj would be out of character. However, if a situation arises and they over-indulge with alcohol, I could see the two accidentally tying the knot.

Why?

Others wrote some reasons. I will add that they guy invited his mother to his friends' "for families and closest friends" wedding... Sure you could say he thought he should invite his family but he did not invite his siblings. As I see Sheldon he would think his mother should be there for special occasions such as his wedding, but writing something that feels OOC is definitely not beyond TPTB.

There's no Ruchi in the credits for the episode in the booklet, but there's a "Denise". Maybe Dr. Kootrappali elopes, LOL!

I would hate it if it was all Amy . Its Sheldon's big day too isn't it ? Or is he just a placeholder ? Its Sheldon's wedding as much as it is Amy's. I would like atleast some reflection of Sheldon in the wedding as well.  I also think, that the perfect wedding doesn't really matter. What matters is the marriage- the  journey , the connection and the fun. That is something that is lacking  wrt to Shamy this season. 

But  it's a long way down from a June wedding on a cliff to a December wedding in a Court House. I agree that a wedding should be a compromise and reflect both bride's and groom's personalities, but it wouldn't be fair either if Amy wants a nice biggish wedding (to which Sheldon seemed to agree, judging form 11.3) and she ends up eloping because Sheldon wants to do that. I mean, most likely we are talking about nothing and there'll be no elopement altogether in the episode, but if this is the scenario, I hope it's clear from the context that the choice  is a shared one, and none of them is settling for the other's sake. Same thing if they decide on a "bigger" wedding. I wouldn't be happy if it's all Amy's.

But here's the difference : he invited her to their wedding redo, not the trip to Vegas! And that's pretty much what this is about, too.

If Shamy are indeed eloping (and sure, that might be a big IF depending on how reliable that online comment is) I don't think it's OOC for Sheldon to just go through with it and not call Mary first. He's been shown that he can be impulsive in the past, especially when it comes to taking his relationship with Amy to the next level. Now if and when they are planning a ceremony for friends and family I'm sure he'd want Mary there, no doubt.

I think there is a reference to a "break up" from the white board notes(if that is indeed this same episode) . Maybe Raj causes his dad's latest relationship to break up. Or his dad decides to remarry and that upsets Raj  . I see no Ruchi in the cast in the IG post.  And i cant figure out which character is listed between raj's dad and Denise in the ig pic ?

Do you think it's possible Young Sheldon might change that? I'm not really saying one way or another, but I do think it's possible (and believe I have seen it) that the audience/writers will be influenced by what they see from the prequel. They have highlighted the fact that Sheldon deeply loves his parents in a way I never really saw or took seriously on TBBT. I could see Sheldon eloping without his mother present messing up the emotional background they're trying to sell through stories of his childhood. Sadly, I think that makes it less likely he would even if it shouldn't factor in.

Having had a taste now of Holland's show running style I kinda doubt it, actually. If Molaro were running both shows then sure. But so far I haven't gotten the impression that TBBT has changed much to serve the spin off. Under Holland the show has imho dialled back showing us Sheldon's softened edges that we've seen a lot more under Molaro, especially S10. So unless Holland changes course or Molaro intervenes I don't think what happens on YS matters much.

She freaked over a tiara!!!!!!. Veil and big dress will huge-er-er, surely. He will be much happier in the long run if he doesn’t mess up her *cough* their day. He should hand over the reins, unless, against canon, he suddenly has a big investment in the tradition. 

But what are the chances. Where’s the fun in that. Onwards Sheldon, make it about you! :)

I wonder if Raj's dad is making an actual appearance in the flesh so to speak or via some video or Skype call like scenes? Will be interested to hear what he thinks about his son's current relationship.

On the whiteboard that we're suspecting to outline the plot the first line was about Raj skyping with his dad so that's where I put my expectations for now.

Yeah I said that in my post it could be a skype of video call scene and that's what I am leaning towards it being. I like Raj's dad so I am looking forward to it and perhaps seeing his reaction to Raj's current relationship status or situation.

I bet he will not believe that, after years of proposing him some suitable mates, his son is, on his own will, dating an accomplished, Indian lady...That Skype call will be funny indeed!

Yeah lol, there could be some gag like ' You had to go all the way to America breaking your Mother's heart to fall for an Indian woman? You could have done that here!'

There are bound to be some jokes by his dad that this is the relationship his son is now in. But I think it will be delivered well and likely funny, his dad is great. :)

What follows is JMO. I agree with you that Holland's show running style is different to Molaro's, and while I would like to see better stories for Lenny, I have to say that all in all I am liking the "feel" of the show (which really means I prefer it to the last couple of seasons). I've watched YS online and while I enjoy several of the actors individually (specially Iain) I don't like the feel of the show and it seems to me it's down to Molaro. In regards to which show follows which YS should always follow (change to accommodate) TBBT for 2 reasons:

1) TBBT is the established more successful show.

2) It is what we were shown as canon first, and ultimately a prequel needs to follow previously established events.

I like him too , but was bummed when he divorced his wife. They dynamic between them was hilarious and the way Raj's parents bickered was always a treat for me.

I'm hoping that they just elope. Could careless if she is bridezilla. Any wedding planning at this point IMO is just filler.

Don't get me wrong, TBH I don't really care about a Shamy wedding because I'm not invested in it one way or another, but I was responding to a post which said they couldn't see a bridezilla Amy.
