That girl is a marvel - goes into labor in the morning, delivers a new prince by lunch, emerges fresh as morning dew by teatime, and back home by supper. Even my wife didn't bounce back that fast, but we are only on our first, so...

In the one B&W wedding rehearsal, Mark Hamill is in the minister's position. Maybe Sheldon gets a Star Wars wedding w/o the costumes.

I have been wondering if Hamill will be playing himself, the actor who was in Star Wars, or is he cast as someone else entirely portraying the officiant.

So is any Lenny is too much for you?

Not at all. I can appreciate it when it's well done but I am not generally fond of it and it's not why I ever watched the show. I don't begrudge it to anyone though. Many of my friends adore it.

Also, I have the inkling (but not the sound argument at hand) that the sexual history jokes will be at sometime as archaic and unsettling as Amos & Andy and Benny Hill.

Benny HIll still has tons of fans, and frankly so does Two and a Half Men, which was also a problem in that regard. I think TBBT will survive as well.

Maybe someone got Hamill to officiate for Sheldon. They did bring Bruce Wayne for his birthday.

To tell the truth, I continued watching in spite of having Shamy and Sheldon shoved down our throats. I didn't watch because I enjoyed Shamy.

Yes that's true, but Bruce Wayne is no longer a big draw, is he? Sort of the Professor Proton of the Batman franchise? Whereas Hamill can still pack them in and does I believe. What inducement could they possibly offer him to attend a physicist's wedding, let alone officiate?

But in the Lenny thread you wrote you are hoping for some nice and cute Lenny scenes in this final episode of season 11. :icon_wink:

You can't totally be honest in the Lenny thread

With that being said, Amy did have some funny lines this year and Sheldon is funny when he get hurt as in S10/E9 or gets pranked as in "The Gates Excitation"!

It also seems that they had a long day in pre-taping these scenes, something like  12-13 hours then they have to be on set today for the live taping.  But I guess they get paid enough and they have three and a half months to recuperate

Actually there was no Lenny in seasons 1,2,4 and parts of 3 and 5

I've tried to argue that and given up.

Their video clip at a Monty Python event, commenting on "The Galaxy Song"  made me weep with laughter. (You will be so missed Stephen.)

LOVE that song. I took a group of Girl Scouts to see a program on the Hubble Telescope once and as they showed the pictures they played that song...fifty times. The girls picked it up and sang it for half an hour straight going home and if you asked them now, years later, they probably still could sing it. I have no idea why they've never used it on the show.

The excessive Lenny in earlier seasons has been brought up before.  Mostly as a justification as to why there is so much Shamy at this time.

There is some of that but there is just as much "they loved each other from the day they met" as if you can love someone you've just seen for the first time and know nothing about. Which I do NOT believe but many people do, and if they do that's fine. I just can't.

With all that repetition, it's a wonder you didn't come to despise that tune! I suppose not using it on TBBT is a question of musical rights. I've noticed that some BBC programs like "Endeavour" will use a piece of music which is changed when the same episode is shown in the U.S. Very disconcerting in one instance where the episode title was that of a song which was never played.

They were a form of Lenny. They weren't in a relationship, just best friends. They were BFF before Amy ever existed.

It's the Atheneum, there was the same decor, waIIpaper and paintings on the waII in the episode about the wedding Iocation

That explains why Kripke is at the wedding. They kept their promise to have him if he let them have the venue.

For some reason, the Pythons don't seem to be in their bailiwick. Not really in the realm of science/sci-fi/comics.  Now that I think about it, I bet Amy FF would be a huge fan of the Pythons with her dry sense of humor.  Can't you see her knowing the words to the Philosopher’s Song:  "Immanuel Kant was a real pissant who was very rarely stable. Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar who could think you under the table....."

>>dying of laughter thinking of Amy and the Philosopher's Song, with harp accompanyment<<

ITA, Python should be something Amy would embrace.

She looked better walking out of the hospital with that baby than I looked at my wedding. But yes, I would call that the wedding of the century. The Shamy wedding is not going to be that overwhelming to me. I just have a feeling about it. People who expect every little detail to be delved into, I think are going to be disappointed. I don't see how they can do that.

...although there is hope for humanity......Monty Python is coming soon to Netflix!

With the number of guest stars and 18 minutes, I don't see how much else can fit. ROTFL at the bold part! :sarcastichand:

I'd never heard it and It is possible the writers have not either. Now that I have heard it on youtube I'd say it lacks the manic pace of the theme song and the Element song.
