Sheldon being oblivious that Leonard was lying on the couch.

I was wondering that too. Maybe because the audience could see Leonard sleeping on the couch. But Sheldon’s breakfast ceremony wasn't funny in itself, was it?

I guess so, I thought it was pre-taped because of the big reaction when Leonard was revealed.

Obviously she didn’t want Leonard to donate but why? 

Because it's weird as hell...? We also got another reason when she said she knew it would be too hard for Leonard to have a biological child and not being their father.

Penny’s regret is the thing that makes me wonder if this is all over.  It seemed to me that regret over how she had hurt Leonard (again) with this stance she is taking and how it was disappointing her father, hung very heavy on her at the end of this episode.  That is why I felt it left an opening for a change of heart in a later episode.

Not wanting to disappoint your husband and father is IMO a terrible reason to have a child. It was also kind of resolved when both supported her.

No one is attacking you. If you want everyone to agree with you there is a thread for that. He gave his opinion. Is that not allowed?

It could also look like Sheldon and have Marissa’s intelligence, if Amy had let Sheldon donate.  Boy Amy really drowned that kitty quickly when Sheldon suggested he donate to solve Zack's problem.

The fact is Zach and Marissa will not have a child with ANY resemblance to either Sheldon or Leonard. Not gonna happen.

She lowered the boom and squashed that idea on the spot. As  Barney Pife said in the Andy Griffith Show, "He Nipped it in the Bud".

I think the suggestion of him doing that and the standing in front of the fridge was unnecessary to the episode.

One’s weirdness apparently not someone else’s. As to Penny’s knowing that it would be too hard to have a child without being a father when did she tell him that? After Amy? Could of told him that awhile ago.

As to having a baby to please someone. I agree. I also think this storyline isn’t over yet

Precisely. Beauty and desirability are entirely subjective.

I’m sorry but the story line that has been boring this season is the Sheldon/Shamy asymmetry plot because it is unrealistic, them getting a Nobel for it is ridiculous and it has been drug out so long that it is very BORING.  I think some of the time they spent on asymmetry would have been better used in completing the tenure story line that they began in season 6.

I feel the way they have concentrated on Sheldon in season 12 is the main reason season 12 is so bad.  I also see the heavy concentration on Sheldon and Shamy in season 11, with the wedding, and season 12, with asymmetry, as the reasons for the decline of the show.

I think it's all a matter of opinion. I've read over and over last night's episode was considered boring and Shamy was barely in it so it can't be blamed on them. I also read through previous threads and learned how many were excited to see Penny in her underwear. Where I  do like the Penny character I can't say I was excited about such scenes but if I heard they'd be Sheldon in his underwear I would definitely be more excited. I don't think everyone on this board can all agree at once that either its Lenny's fault or Shamy's fault the show is now boring but I do think most of us can agree that the show has run out of material and that is almost the number one reason this show is ending, the writers just can't come up with anymore stories.

It also had the most viewers of the season which is not an opinion. As to how boring it was I wonder what thread that was or maybe you could  tell me where you read how boring it was.

Really going out on a limb there. Next thing you are going to say that some people watch the show just for certain characters.

So I'm just saying it shouldn't be stated like a fact that certain characters are the reason for the show's downfall. I believe its lack of ideas at this point and not that 'Shamy plots are the reason'

Well, that was an okay episode the Howardette, Raj/Anu plot felt more like filler than anything else. 

The Lenny plot was a mixed bag, I liked Zack and Marissa they are definitely made for each other. It was good to see Wyatt again although his first scene wasn't that great. His second when he has his heart to heart with Penny was really endearing and showed how proud of the woman Penny has become. It was good to see Leonard & Penny's bedroom again, and the seduction scene was short but entertaining. Although I wasn't happy that it was Sheldon & Amy who seemed to be the ones who some are the go to for advice on this subject, it just felt off. What I did get id throughout the episode Penny wasn't okay with Leibard doing this but was going to let him as she feels she's letting him down by not wanting children. They have left the door open for Penny to change her mind, the question is will she?.

Oh and we finally found out Peny's sisters name, Lisa so that's something.

It makes more sense to me to speculate how it was able to last for 12 seasons still doing well compared to other scripted shows.

I don't think she was okay with it. She just had no moral ground to stand on if she told him no, since she had just sprung on him that she didn't want kids with no warning.

I would too because THAT would probably be part of a funny story.

Sheldon only in his underwear? I would be more excited too 😁. That would be an amusing story I bet.

Or fans of baby plots on this show...that is more of an issue for me than it being Lenny centric. If it was Sheldon and Amy I would have the exact same reaction. Boring episode, boring season. I have said for ages please no more baby plots in the show. for anyone. No Lenny, not Shamy not Howadette, not Rajanu and not Stunice.

I really do not mind a Lenny centric plot. I would like to see that they really enjoy doing things together. Even if it was traveling home to visit Penny's family. I would be fine with that. Just put some fun and lightness into it. 

What about looking for a first home? That could be fun and cute.

The experience offered by ZERO-G is the only commercial opportunity on Earth for individuals to experience true weightlessness without going to space.

It is the illusion of zero gravity, but actually it is nothing more than what a skydiver feels in free fall.  When space you actually feel zero gravity and it has effects  on your body and sense of balance, in free fall gravity is still in control in what your body feels, so again this is only an illusion.  What gets people sick on the vomit comet is the exaggerated sense of vertigo, the same sense they get on a roller coaster, or bumpy aircraft ride, not the feeling people get when their body loses its sense of gravity.  So saying that riding the vomit comet gives you the experience of weightlessness is actually wrong, it gives you the illusion of weightlessness.

They have a two bedroom apartment, why do they need a larger place, also didn’t Penny say that she just wanted a better apartment in the future and that is the reason the baby discussion started because Leonard noted there would be no room for their kids.
