I agree. I just chalk it up to "write what sounds funny and damn what came before" sitcom writing.
Pretty much the only way to account for Amy's near complete reversal in attitude from her earlier appearances to now. The character is nothing like it was originally envisioned.
Even worse.. Sheldon. Just look at the pilot when they meet Penny and she's impressed by their math boards.. Sheldon flirts with her!

It was even even worse in the original pilot. Sheldon actually found women attractive and even had sex with one.

The original also had both Leonard and Sheldon selling their genius sperm in order to eat. Their money is definitely going somewhere.

TBBT shows the same signs of deterioration as Two and a Half Men. Characters become more and more cartoonish, contradict themselves, are assholes most of the time, and the storylines just get worse and worse as well.

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

Regarding the money, Sheldon does earn a lot more than he spends. He had a drawer full of uncashed paychecks, and actually said a percentage of what he spent each month. Leonard should earn less, given that he seems less academically succesfull and has been at the university a shorter time, but he still should have a lot of money left at the end of the month.

And when we are on the subject, why does Howard work at a university? He seems skilled at what he does, and his field has practical uses, in which there is a lot of money. A private aerospace company should be able to use him much more.

Ahh thanks. I don't have the dvds so I didn't know about this.

That's really interesting about the other pilot. Do you know the name of actress that played Penny?

As for Amy's character change, she was just a late bloomer. She had never found a person that had the qualities that she sees in Sheldon. Happens all the time in real life.

And Sheldon previously had sex with the nerdy girl Leonard was "attached" to.

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

well sheldon and leonard live together because they have been starved for human contact thier entire lives, or they just continued on the same pattern from when they were students, or they are just naturally frugal, or they don't care about economic appearances, or vacancy rates are really tight and they have to take what they can.

And Amy is experiencing a sexual awakening because for the first time in her life she is in a social situation where sex is actually a possibility

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

I can see why Sheldon would want a roomate - someone to drive him around, be his sidekick if he gets superpowers etc.
