Weigh in all you like. We've not seen enough of Penny's success. 

Thanks for a clarification...🙂

We are sometimes satisfied with the little bit that the fun-scribblers have offered us over the last few years regarding Penny's development.

Okay.  Game of Thrones begins its final season this weekend.  Six episodes, meaning the final of GoT will air May 19!  Three days after the final TBBT!!!   Yikes!!!!!

Penny is a fully-realised deep and fascinating sex bomb (not so) airheaded blonde. KC's star quality made Penny far more than any cliche. IMO KC is just as much a breakout as JP, and sadly she's been wasted in TBBT for several seasons.

If you say so...I've just never seen it, although I do like Lenny when it's well written.

...and now they've gone and released a new Star Wars trailer.  And the title of Episode IX.  Dammit!  I'm an emotional mess!!!!!

What made me a mess is that they are inserting unused footage of Carrie Fisher.

Everybody seems to expect an exciting, upbeat finale. Maybe so (in which case Penny's birthday would be good) but is that the usual arrangement? I realise that I can't remember the final eps of Cheers or Frasier or Friends. On the other hand, some British and Irish sitcoms I do remember. Drop the Dead Donkey  was one of the funniest ever, IMO. Set in a TV news company, it ended with the parent company closing it down. The characters as I remember mostly had to take demeaning jobs either outside TV or on low-grade chatshows, while the company's director had a breakdown. Ballykissangel ended with the heroine (played by Dervla Kirwan) electrocuted while trying to fix the power supply in her pub (I gather a show of the same name staggered on with none of the main characters). Goodnight Sweetheart ended with the time-travelling hero trapped 50 years in the past. None particularly upbeat.

And the low key endings of some of them left the door open for new episodes on the 80th anniversary of the BBC or other occasions for reunions. I liked the Goodnight Sweetheart one where Gary was flashed forward to the world of 2017 which was utterly bewildering to him, having last seen his own time in 2000.

I love Kaley as a person--big heart, immense love for animals and love the fact she adopts rescues and supports the cause, seems to have a good sense of humor--nice person. The best Penny I felt was when she was paired with Sheldon--their stories were hysterical, timing superb, best banter, good chemistry...As for Lenny I think they're cute and like them..but I don't think their acting is anything wonderful and I can't say I get wicked excited over their scenes.  I do feel sorry for Leonard at times, just can't say I feel there is a strong bond between them.

I agree. We can never get enough of Lenny in Penny's home state!!

If anyone would like to read a terrific fan-fic about Penny and Leonard going to see her parents in Nebraska please read "THE ENGAGEMENT VORTEX" by gsxdoug  It shows Penny's love for her parents and how they embrace Leonard into their family.  It also shows how Leonard figures out a family illness on the farm.  Believe this takes place after they are engaged.  I had an enjoyable time reading this.

I've read it a couple of times and I completely agree with your analogy.

I think the writer at this point have limited abilities. They only can write what know how to do. It really has nothing to do with the acting

I don't know...haven't been in a writing (or reading) mood for quite some time. More to do with life in general, not for any disappointment with Lenny.

Not even sure if I would remember my login details at the website...

Cool, but if you get the urge to write another one or two, we would enjoy reading them!

The kind of chemistry you are talking about is the same kind of chemistry Abbot and Costello had, or Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin, it is about that they play well off each other.  What people are mostly referring to in this forum is the chemistry between Leonard and Penny as a couple (they also play well off each other, too), that couple chemistry does not exist between Sheldon and Penny, it never did, the actors even have confirmed that.  I sometimes even question the chemistry between Amy and Sheldon because I don’t think putting Sheldon in a male/female relationship was a good idea and his character, as written, is just as disrespectful to women as he is to his friends.  I really think one of the big mistakes in the show was to define Sheldon’s sexuality, he should have remained unattached with little interludes with women like he had with Martha and Nowinski through the show.  I liked the Amy character and I think she may have worked with Raj better than Sheldon in the long run, Sheldon has always been the odd man out and he should have remained that way till the end, not Raj, doing it with Raj is just sad.

But the thing is this isn't the Lenny section and I never said Sheldon and Penny were sexually attracted to each other so I believe the post Did have merit and can not be disregarded because there is no sexual intentions with Sheldon and Penny No matter what they have good chemistry.
