[Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Actually an ideal season 12 would take last Thursday's episode times 24.

I would want Lenny to get some more screen-time and well thought out plots.

Yeah, especially plots that don't include Sheldon or Shamy!

Never gonna happen. Shamy, and Sheldon are a huge draw for fans...

Not so much for fans as the stupid writers.

But for many casual fans (not people on here) the Shamy and Sheldon story IMO will end with the wedding.

I disagree...they have at least as many fans as Lenny does.

That's the point. Not many if there is more. So the reason would have to be the stupid writers. So I guess we will just disagree on this subject.

So Lenny can never have plots on their own away from Shamy or Sheldon.

I actually think you both agree. What is shown on the screen is more based on the writers than the fans.

Oh yay...it's time for me to come on and repeat myself...

 

My wish after this season is:  A more balanced show (and for now this does mean less Shamy)

Some focus on the lives of Lenny

Some good old fashioned all of the gang together Hi-jinks and lighthearted fun

Maybe even 3rd plot where Raj gets a steady GF

And with Howdette maybe less baby/career story line and more of them trying to find ways to still have fun sans kids (with their kiddoes mentioned every so often)

I say this and really have no hope that this will change.

 

To paraphrase our house- and backyard-philosopher: What some dewy-eyed moon-calves we are.  
Yeah, I guess that goes for both of us. :icon_wink:

I guess so...I like them best when they are interacting with one of the Shamy. Because they are so opposite.  I really like Amy and Penny stories.

So that means you don't want Shamy stories? I think there is plenty of time on screen that Lenny and Shamy can be alone. Equally

I don't think Shamy are the biggest draw for the series. The biggest draw is The show it self. The show was def not a hit. Because of Shamy in the first three seasons. And I am not going bring up 7x01 and 7x02 (Two of the highest rated episodes from this series ever). As an argument that Lenny deserve all the screen time. I think Post Shamy wedding. Some are just asking for a more balanced show like it was in S6 even. Lenny can have their own plots without Sheldon. They had a ton of them in s6. And their is various plot lines they can do as a married couple. IF the writers wanted too. Hopefully S12 we see this happening.

To be clear I never said Sheldon was the biggest draw for fans. I do believe this character has at least as much draw as the Leonard though. I agree you need both of them. You must have Leonard to balance out the Sheldon character, and must have Sheldon to balance out the passiveness of Leonard. I see them as sort of a yin/yang. They are both needed to compliment each other's personality.

It's more interesting to me than Mayim's lunch.

I have to agree, I hope she enjoyed that food. I don't think I would have fed that to my dog.

Jim is doing a Broadway play this summer called "The Boys In The Band".  They started rehearsals in LA this past Friday.  Zachary Quinto is also in the play's cast.

I wonder if TBBT will try to get him to do a cameo.

The interesting in this pic was not Mayim's lunch, but the stuff underneath it.

She normally does not shave the armpits. Glad she must have made a consession for this. Not sure a hairy bride is all that... No offense to anyone. This is just my opinion.

I agree the show is the primary draw, but television viewing is different now than it was even 5 years ago.  And with all the reruns in syndication, the show is, in many ways, competing against itself.  I only recently started watching them when broadcast.

Sheldon IS the breakout character though.  

I'm hoping the series will do justice to Penny's character next year.  I think that is THE key for next year.  So much potential not used....

Mayim apparently has a huge tattoo, it could be they are having to cover it up with body makeup because it's visible with the wedding dress she is trying on.

I have some fears her dress might be something very vintage looking (too vintage) and was hoping she might wear something more modern, this picture perhaps gives me hope that might be the case.

I don't think your dog would have recognized it as food - I think she's vegan these days.

If you're physically active and not a competitive swimmer, it's vastly more comfortable.
