  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.

Yes, totally agree: you've nailed something I've tried to express in the past.

They also should never have tried to make Amy into a romantic heroine. Perhaps that change of character is impossible to pull off, and it certainly doesn't work here. When the writers play to MB's strengths - as in 1217 Scheming Amy - it can be very funny. But only KC should be the leading lady.

Hero, Heroine why does there need to be one?

I think they have all done some very courageous things and gone out of their way to help others. But heroes?

No, I save the hero label for those that have in my eyes gone well above and beyond, people who have saved lives perhaps even at the risk of their own.

Don't be serious, just take it literally in terms of our holy fandom. 🙂

That often seemed to work, didn't it? 😉

Mine too They were gold together

Gotta admit, Kaley and Jim seem pretty close, too off screen Whenever there is a cast photo, a majority of the time Kaley is all over Jim 

Sorry, I don't think Kaley is as close with Jim as she is with Johnny

To be clear, I never felt or said they had any sexual tension between them--people can still have good chemistry w/o the attraction for another. 

Yes - to be clear, I never thought that you thought there was any sexual element to S & P - I think we're fully in agreement on that.

It occurs to me to wonder if the reason some people expected the S & P relationship to develop into a sexual one was because that's something of a convention in films - antagonistic pairs of young man and woman either start off married (eg Woman of the year) or end up together (eg It happened one night). Yes, my examples are pretty old, and I don't know if it still holds - anyone else think so?

Totally in agreement!

Well, as usual lately, we disagree. Kaley is a marvelous actress.

And she does have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!

To me, any actor or actress is a good one if I can believe I'm watching and listening to the character and not someone playing a part. I suppose when it comes to TV, radio or film rather than the stage, a lot of the work is in the editing. All the regular TBBT actors I find believable : it's as though I'm really watching something happening in their lives. I'll miss them when they're gone. From my angle, that makes them whatever adjective on the good to great scale anyone cares to apply. It's possible the credit should go to the writers and directors who set the level of difficulty of the parts to be played.  When there's an odd guest who looks as though he or she is acting, such as Penny's brother or Sheldon's Meemaw it is jarring to me. The responsibility for making them fit in or not possibly lies in the script,direction or editing, I wouldn't know.

You both have the definition right. Hero (or heroine ) is a homonym. It can mean either someone who does something outstandingly courageous for the greater good, or a leading fictional character. Dickens' David Copperfield begins ' Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life .....' and then goes on to write about his birth, childhood, marriage and work. He does a few nice things, the greatest of which is to produce a daughter to make his great aunt happy.

I suppose anyone who can control Sheldon is heroic up to a point. In another meaning, there's such a thing as heroic surgery.

Well, considering Kaley and Johnny were in a relationship the first couple of years speaks volumes to their friendship. Kaley and Jim are friends, but that's that. Besides, how many times did Jim join Kaley at the end of each taping to speak to the audience? None! Enough said!

Curious Mario, who of the cast has one of those? Is it just Jim and Kaley?

Huh?

Yes, and they broke up...I don't see how that can determine the quality of their friendship

Kaley and Johnny are the selected cast members to speak to the audience--Jim was not selected so does not speak...so that has nothing to do with his friendship with Kaley

Last I knew no one by the name of Chucky hangs out with the cast that can relay anything personal about their relationships

None of the rest of the cast have one.

Chuck has one, but it is for his body of work, not just for TBBT.

Well, I'll just conclude my input with a big ' I don't agree' and a 'to each his own' (There has been numerous photos of Kaley and Jim out at games, dinner, etc... and he is pictured in her account also)

Good point. I would have thought that he had one for TBBT as well. His Leonard portrayal for 12 years should have given him one. Leonard is an iconic character on an iconic show.

Jim is gay so their relationship was never  gonna be anything more than that anyway.

Oh my word! This is beginning g to sound like jr. high school! “He’s better friends with her than you are”. Yikes. They are all friendly with each other to varying degrees. Johnny and Kaley were in a relationship. Now they’re not. Luckily for us as fans of TBBT, they share a deep friendship. Jim and Mayim respect each other immensely and appear to be good friends. Johnny appeared on Mayim’s television show when they were both teens and have a connection there. Jim and Kaley have a nice friendship as well. Melissa and Bill Prady share aspects of their religion on Instagram with each other at holiday times.

We are lucky that as co-workers they all get along. I believe this lends to the longevity of the series. Let’s all embrace that as the days dwindle down....

After a while it becomes more about defending the integrity of the initial post (That's all)

“We are constantly asked about the process. Nominating someone for a star is as simple as can be! All we ask for is a completed nomination application and a commitment to sponsor the star should their celebrity sign off on the nomination and attend the event if selected. Anyone can nominate their favorite celebrity, including a fan,” says Ana Martinez (producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies)

If they approve your nomination, you pay them $40,000 and voila, you got a star.
