[Spoilers] Shamy: Season 12

Recommended Posts

All I can say in here on this episode is that it reaffirmed my love for the Amy character, she's been my favourite on the entire show since season 4 and it's not close, no other character comes close. I love her personality, her humour, her quirks, her nerdy hobbies and interests, being seen as weird and all that. I also love that she is a strong willed, hard working, independent woman with a career where she is highly respected in her field that has come through hard work and dedication to her craft.

I wanted to give her a hug her so bad in that episode. She should not have had to go through this.

Onwards and upwards onto the next episode, fingers crossed it's a better one.

Love what you said here about Amy.

I didn't like her when she first showed up, but I'll admit, with the seasons passing by, I love her more and more, she became really interesting and funny and kind to me. 

Not to mention, to me, she actually has the most interesting and meaningful work-related plots in this whole show.

In S.10, Bert said Amy was popular in Caltech, I loved that plot;   in this episode, Siebert said Amy was very important to Caltech, I loved this plot, too. 

Hoping to see MORE of Amy's work plot (but without this episode's chaos, of course). 

 

 

ETA:   Just noticed a little detail, Sheldon said "They considered Dr. Park quite the step down" and "No wonder you are not on the  tenure track.", was this implying "Amy is on the tenure track"?  Thoughts?

Yes, I noticed that, too! I really hope that this means Amy is on tenure track. I mean, the tenure episode back in the day was a god damn mess (as in: this is not how this works at a university) so I'd love to have this corrected and get a hint as to Amy (and other characters?) be on tenure track positions as it should be.

I know people have strong feelings about this episode (and they're all justified) but for me, this was such a great Amy episode. She asserted how important her field was to her, we got to see her be excited about it and called out sheldon for being selfish, a known flaw in his character, but for me, one of her own flaws was addressed. Now this is just me, but Amy is not the best at being vulnerable. Getting angry, that she's great at but expressing fears and insecurities is not her strong suit. She'll either joke or be matter-of-fact about talking about her lonely past, both clear methods of detaching the emotion from it. Here, not only did she call sheldon out on his crap but she expressed her fear of losing herself. The best part IMO, she wouldn't have done that if sheldon had let her go back to sleep. By stressing how important it was for their marriage to talk about it, it opened the door for her to be honest both with him and herself. Sheldon's "Thank you for explaining" tells me this is the first time she's ever told him that. A tired plot? Absolutely. but it explored Amy as a character and I loved it. 

Also, them passing math notes in the beginning like giggly teenagers was the best. 

Totally agree with you here! The whole Sheldon/Siebert thing was awful (more of that in the episode thread) but it got us a wonderful Shamy scene where Amy is finally allowed to open up! I would love to see that more often - preferably without her having to go through the ringer next time!

I love Amy so much and I need her to be the focus more often. ❤️

I hope so.

Haha, I went back to watch Professor Proton's previous appearances, I noticed the last time he showed up, in 11X06, The Proton Regeneration, when Sheldon said hello to him, he said: "You know, we could also meet in a deli." Then, in this episode, they were meeting in a deli. 

So, I guess next time, if we ever see PP, Sheldon would order the right lean meat for him. LOL.

Great catch, maybe that's what gives Shamy the green light to start their family, knowing Amy has a secured job.

Would have been great if the writers gave us a line in 12x03 telling us what Shamys timeline is.

I can't comment much on Shamy because there was just too much petty BS in this episode for me overall to get any major enjoyment from their interactions in this one.

That being said I did like the tag, which is funny because if Sheldon hadn't of texted her to get himself out of there I would have absolutely hated it and seen it as another eye-rolling mothering joke.  Just goes to show how one small piece of dialogue can change the whole way you view the scene.

Yeah, that was great; I was about to be so pissed off for it and then Amy's revelation changed the scene at once and it became a great moment of complicity between two spouses!

Very great "Howard" and "Bernie" costumes in this one!!!  I laughed so hard at those two wigs...

I really wish we could see Bernie dressing up as "Amy", so I could make a picture of all four of them as my phone wallpaper...

I loved Shamy in this one - very light-hearted sweet couple dynamic. First Amy being understanding about Sheldon's hurt feelings and trying to mend the conflict between him and Howard. And when Bernie doubles down they switch to partners in crime mode and it was great to see them in their costumes. hahaha

And the tag was hilarious!! More of that please!

Another little detail was that Amy was the only one who actually found Sheldon's fun facts interesting. aww ❤️

Hahaha, YES!!! This was one of the "evidences" that some comments were saying "they were being showered by all 4 couples' sweetnesses in this episode"... LOL...

Cut to Sheldon trying to bond with Larry and failing once Larry finds Howard’s magic tricks more exciting than Sheldon.

Hahaha, reminds me of Bernie's Father Mike found Sheldon more interesting than Howard and liked to talk to him about football in that Thanksgiving episode, LMAO!!!

 

THANK YOU @koops!!!

I hope you have a great day!!!

 

 

PS: @koops, I have a question if you don't mind, is this episode a Thanksgiving one? Thanks!!!

I think that's the intention. Good for them for remembering this, they tend to forget many other things.

Thanks @koops!!!

Not much direct Shamy interaction but they had a plot where Sheldon decides to bond with his in-laws because he “wants to be a good husband and since they’re important to Amy, by the transitive property, they’re important to him”. Cut to Sheldon trying to bond with Larry and failing once Larry finds Howard’s magic tricks more exciting than Sheldon. So Sheldon moves on to Mrs Fowler next and they surprisingly bond once it comes out that Amy used Sheldon as an excuse not to spend time with her mother and so Mrs Fowler realizes she’s been angry at Sheldon for no reason all this time. And they bond over their hatred of Amy and her dad putting ketchup on eggs (amongst other things - there’s a cute like where Amy’s mom tells Sheldon how can he defend Amy when she’s thrown him under the bus and he says she’s his wife and he loves her and if he can forgive her putting ketchup on eggs he can forgive her this). LOL. Sheldon now finds Mrs Fowler a delight. 

 

Hmm. This part that has been highlighted sounds like it was before they started dating and were just friends, I hope so anyway.
