The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

So we're a couple of episodes into the new series, it's been pretty good so far.


I like how they've paired up Raj with Stewart. His whining about being the only single one was getting tiresome and it seemed like the writers didn't really know what to do with the character.

Sheldon seems to be becoming a bit more sympathetic to other people's feelings. I really liked the moment in the last episode when he told Penny "please don't hurt my friend."

Penny, Penny, Penny...seems like she and Leonard are going to be 'off' again soon. I kinda hope it stays 'off' permanently. It seems like she's never going to truly love him.

Yes.. that "Please don't hurt my friend" was the most touching and human moment Sheldon has ever shown and Jim Parsons delivered it perfectly.. a little awww escaped from me (good thing i was watching alone ).

As to Penny.. really getting fed up with her a bit. Luckily i read an interview with Chuck Lorre who basically said it follows a plan they're having namely that a big thing this season is the bad timing of Penny and Leonard and that Penny has a little bit of growing up to do.

For once i'd like to have Leonard dump her when (and if) he finds out.. he needs to man up a bit which coincidentally is maybe what Penny needs.. someone to stand up to her bullshit because honestly.. she'll most likely not find a guy this good amongst the usual idiots she favored previously.

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

The character works in the A Cheese Cake Factory, and should be a lot heavier than than the actress.

More to love?

Or is it that she's just heavier than she was on Charmed?

Anyone thinks that Leonard is going to put a bun in Penny's oven?

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

That would certainly mix things up a bit.
I really like how amid his many quirks, Sheldon is having little moments of genuine emotional growth and expression. His moment with Penny, "Don't hurt my friend," was touching and shows how much he's grown as a person.

The countdown to Soft Kitty is on.

It was the most ..... human thing Sheldon has ever said
"Penny, please don't hurt my friend". Maybe Amy has a chance after all.

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

The scene where Bernadette and Amy express romantic infatuation/irrepressible lust for Howard and Sheldon pretty much says that there will be no Penny and Leonard, except tacked on arbitrarily in the last episode, maybe. It's true that you could see Howard/Bernadette and Sheldon/Amy both as tragicomic mesalliance.

Instead, Penny's foolishness about men makes Leonard look like a good catch. Especially since Leonard is the King of Foreplay. Except that women are not supposed to just want sex for pleasure, they only consummate a grand passion when the Power of True Love has melted all barriers, leaving them free to be carried away by an irresistible tide that has nothing, nothing, to do with lust.

It is unlikely that Chuck Lorre is aiming, consciously or not, at such reality based comedy, he's into farce. Except maybe Raj/Stewart, another pathetic error born of desperation (on both parts.. I'd guess he's distanced enough from homosexuality to take a more dispassionate look.)

If they do introduce a baby, I hope it's Amy and Sheldon's. I think Sheldon could be convinced that it would be beneficial to the human race to pass his genes on. It would have to be a test tube baby or something like that because Sheldon wouldn't have sex, but I think that'd be more original (and funnier) than Leonard and Penny having a baby.

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

What about drunk Sheldon or sleeping Sheldon?

Penny is on the pill, or sensible enough to have abortions or the morning after pill.

Unless Sheldon is exaggerating about the thousands of men she's slept with.

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

Anyone else think that after Amy's comment, the plan for the series is for it to last four more seasons and end with Amy and Sheldon's wedding?

The best two moments of the season so far have been Sheldon's line this week and his quoting Peter Parker to Amy. I actually bought it for a second.

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

^I didn't buy that because I recognised the line.

Well four more years would be season 10 which seems to be a common time for successful sitcoms to end. Still a long time until then though!

I'd rather not see 10 seasons.

Most shows i know peak around season 3 or 4 and by the time you are watching season 7 it's usually more out of habit rather than quality.

.
I suspect that was just a throwaway gag and not any sort of foreshadowing . . . . .

It's possible to read too much into a funny line of dialogue.
