    "I didn't check credits but was he the guy on the new Kristie show that is playing her long lost son?"

    "Yes, he is. And he's a big part of the reason I quit watching that show. I think he's terribly miscast, to the point I had to kill the SP. Well, that and the show stinks..."

    I could see Sheldon kissing her to make his point, but when he put his arm around her, I thought, Ok, we are going to start to see a new Sheldon.

    But then he rated the banjo player the best part of the weekend, so maybe not.

    No. He cancelled Kirstie. As did I. Horrible show.

    I was admitting my mistake. I thought he meant the other.

    Maybe the banjo player was a better kisser, had a waist, and didn't think practical science was more important than theoretical physics. ;)

    :up:

    Off on another tangent, I've met folks like their awkward train dude, I cringed most of the way through that part.


    However I do think the fact that Sheldon kissed Amy and didn't recoil in horror does show that their relationship is progressing.

    No, he didn't choose a favorite. He needed more data. It went like this:

    Leonard: Hang on, hang on. Are all those things equal to you?
    Sheldon: Hmm, it never occurred to me to pick a favorite.
    Leonard: Give it a go.
    Sheldon: I can't answer that without collecting additional data.
    Leonard: "Additional data", you dog!
    Sheldon: I'm not sure how listening to other nine-fingered banjo players makes me a dog, but all right.​

    Hell, I've BEEN folks like the awkward train dude. Trying being deeply into medieval history, or comics books, or any of a number of other things, in a room full of normal people.

    I've learned to be keenly aware of the impending eye-glaze.

    I realized after you posted that my cringe could be misconstrued, I felt bad for all parties, Amy for having it happen, and train guy for not understanding what he was doing wrong, and the cringe'ness comes from having close friends with unique gifts that can veer into that zone too, I still love them to death.

    Believe me, if there were such a thing, this forum (and this thread) would be full of it.

    Or, 20 years ago, trying to explain "yes, I use my computer to log onto these computer networks, download software, chat with total strangers, etc." and you can just see behind their eyes "totally cuckoo, normal folks would never do something like that..."

    And I assume you are implying that nowadays "normal" folks would do something like that...

    I would not use our community here in any meaningful representation of "normal."

    Sure, it progressed in this episode. But if next week it just goes back to Sheldon being Sheldon and they don't move forward from the kiss, then it will be terribly disappointing.
